Question about Hotpoint 24 in. FDW60 Free-standing Dishwasher

Putting my fdw60 aquarius dishwasher back together

Hi, wonder if you can help

my wife filled the salt tank up with diswasher soap (granular), and i opened the bottom up, removed the tank and cleaned it.

After putting it back to together, I noticed that it is not cleaning properly, and there seems to be a white powdery residue on everything. I was wondering if i made a mistake when i connected the 3 pipes back onto the salt tank. There are 2 blacks and 1 grey. Im concerned that i might have swapped one of the grey and one of the blacks.

Can you provide any advise/diagrams/photos, that will help confirm that i put it back togehter properly?

THanks in advance

Justin

Check that the place where u put the salt in is screwed in tightley, then, i find giving the dishes a hand wash and they come up clean , ti will work fine, because if you notic, take a glass with white powdery residue out of the dishwasher and rinse it under water, and the residue is still there, so they need a good scrub and after that , they can be washed as normal!

HI,

You can buy dishwasher salt in almost every supermarket. It can usually be found in the section with other household cleaning products such as soaps and washing powders. Make sure you are buying dishwasher salt. Do not use table salt or any other type of salt not designed for use with dishwashers.

You have not been charged for this information ;)

The tank where the salt goes should that be filled with water, never used a dishwasher before


Yes it should. Mine is always full of water when I fill it with salt. If there is no water how can the salt dissolve?

Where do I add the salt in the dishwasher


Hi,

Before i provide you with the solution, Read the below one :-

CAN I USE ORDINARY TABLE SALT?
No. Table, cooking, rock and sea salts may contain additives that can actually increase water hardness. Also, the fine consistency of some of these salts mean they are likely to clog when wet. Always use granular dishwasher salt because it is very pure and is the right consistency for use in your machine.
Granular salt is the ONLY type of salt that should be used to regenerate the softener. Be aware that some varieties of ‘dishwasher salt’ use Dead Sea salt. This variety may contain minute insoluble organic matter that may adversely affect the resin within your softener over time. If you are in doubt about the origins of the salt, ask the retailer or manufacturer.

Now, look at the Video :-

The steps also include where you need to add Salt in the Dishwasher.You need to be careful with the amount. On few dishwashers, you would have an indication light. Make sure that it should be appropriate.

Let me know, if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

AQUARIUS FDW60. THA FAST AND DELICATE LIGHTS KEEP FLASHING.


I had the same problem with my Hotpoint FDW60 and read all the online reviews about how baddly made the FDW60 is and after taking it apart I totally agree.

As the warning lights were indicating a faulty heating element I checked it to find that it was not working. I bought a replacement for £43 at my local electrical store (I think they then ordered it online). Taking the bottom off is easy but once off, it is very difficult to actually get to the element, but it can be done. I had to buy new hose clips to fasten the rubber pipe each side too. It has been on twice today and so far so good.

I have read some message boards and have seen that some people have had to replace the element a number of times, so I will wait and see what happens.

Be aware the heating element is not your usual heating element, it looks more like a insulated metal tube: http://www.buyspares.co.uk/cgi-bin/search.pl?query=heating+element+fdw60

Good luck

Problem with hotpoint aquarius fdw60 diswasher


My mother has a neighbour who has a new hotpoint dishwasher which caught fire inside (Plastic on door front melted!).

Please contact Hotpoint - if yours is new, check to see if they can replace immediately otherwise its worth booking the engineer to sort £90 - free parts on machines less than 5 years old.
