I too had this problen today. Printed off a manual from the Hotpoint website. Very helpful troubleshoot section. Anyway, flashing eco and fast lights and beeping sound indicates 'water feed pipe blocked' You need to check the water inlet connections on your tap.However, when we pulled it out we noticed the blue water inlet pipe was slightly kinked. Straightened this out and hey presto! It works fine again. How this happens when its worked ok for 18 months will never know but still. Try it! hope this was helpful...shewoo

You need the control panel to reset before anything else can happen. To do this TURN OFF THE PLUG SOCKET FIRST AND UNPLUG. Then you need to drain ALL the water from the machine. Turn off the water supply feed and place the wastage pipe as low to the floor as poss ( 1-2" off floor). Water will gush out so use a large shallow tray and keep emptying the tray. Tilt the dishwasher over slightly to make sure all the water is out.
This will allow the control panel to reset itself which wouldn't normally happen if the base of the dishwasher was holding even a small amount of water.
Re connect the water, plug back in , select the RESET setting on the dial and close the door and switch on.
Leave for about 20 seconds and then turn off.
Rotate the selector switch to "A" Intensive wash and switch
I found this on another site and it really did work for me

2+4 - Heating circuit not working. Possible causes - Heating element, connections, timer relay.
Maybe too late a response.

Here are the eco related error codes for your washer..
1)Light 3 (eco) flashes. Water is present in the flood catching tray at the bottom which usually indicates that there is a leak somewhere. More often than not this is just a pipe with a poor fitting and simply tightening the clip is enough to stop the leak. Our machine had a very slow leak from one pipe (not enough to trigger the alarm) which was fixed in this way. The leak is detected by a small float switch located in the flood catch tray.

Undo 4 screws on the metal plate under the dishwasher 3 at the front 1 at the back, this reveals The pump check the seals are in place on the waste pump.

2) Wash indicator lights 3 + 5 (eco + pre) flashing rapidly. Filter is clogged. Pull out the filter and clean it.
3)Runs for approx. 3 minutes and then stops. Lights 3 + 4 (eco and fast) flash. Probably caused by being plumbed into a hot rather than cold water supply. The incoming water is hotter than required for the wash which causes the machine to cut out. Plumbing the machine into a cold water supply will fix the problem with no apparent long term problems.

My Hotpoint FDW60 dishwasher - I select new programme (normal 55 degree wash) and it defaults to 45 degree wash green light flashing and just making a whirring sound but nothing else happens. I have tried pressing the restart button, holding it in until I get the continuous sound and then restarting the programme but the same thing happens

Hotpoint fdw60 eco error code


I had this problem too, but discovered the cause and the remedy.

The flashing eco light signifies that the drain sump has water in it. Before the machine takes on water it checks a float located in the sump. If the float says that there is water in the sump then the machine presumes that there has been a problem when draining and decides not to take on any more water.

In my particular case, the sump collected extra water after the machine has last drained itself because the bottom spray arm has come off and allowed some water to enter the machine. Make sure that you check that!

The simple solution is to empty the sump of water. Do this by tipping the machine onto its right side. Warning! You will get wet feet! There was about a 1/4 pint of water in my dishwasher.

After that you should find that your dishwasher works perfectly again! Why Hotpoint couldn't include this simple task in their manual I'll never know! Health & Safety I guess...

HTH!

This is a bad control board that if replaced will only repeat in a short time .My advice is to contact the manufacturer and complain,you have the right as a consumer to do so.
