It sounds like there could be a gritty deposit in the bottom of the system. At the start of the cycle the unit takes in a set amount of water and recycles it around to the drying phase.

Try and run the diswasher a few times with no items in it - this will may help to flush it out.

If the gritty deposit coloured white this could be that your new home has more limescale in its supply. Try getting dishwasher tablets with limescale protection to see if that helps.

Finally, please ensure the spray arms free to rotate on each cycle. Failure to do this leaves grit on certain items and not others.

Please dont forget to rate.

Bosch S9G1B dishwasher doesn't fill with water


The valve will not energize if the float is up at the limit. Sometimes a bit of soapscum can leave the float in the up position. When this happens no water is allowed into the chamber. Move the float up and down and clean the travel using a bleach spray.

FDW60P dishwasher. Hotpoint Aquarius Control panel not working


I phoned Hotpoint. Was told to switch everything off and take the plug out for ten minutes - I didnt do that before, I just plugged it straight back in. I did this and was able to run the machine during the night on the programme I wanted. At least if it happens again I know what to do.. This solution will cost you nothing.

Hotpoint dishwasher


Switch the machine off and unplug at the mains. Leave for ten minutes, then plug in and switch on. My dishwasher control panel had a mind of its own and did what it wanted including leaving water in the bottom of the machine. The electrics sometimes need re-booting! Hotpoint suggested the solution and it worked for me. Saved me £99 call out charge. Good luck.

Hotpoint aquarius dishwashers keeps stopping half way through wash flashing between the 40 and 60 temp light. How can I fix this please


Control panel is sensitive on this model. Mine did the same and machine would not wash to the programme, stopped half way or would not set at all. Switch off machine and unplug from the mains. Leave for 10 minutes. Plug back in and switch the machine to your required programme. You should find this solves the problem. It worked for me.
Failing that, go to the Hotpoint website, find the customer service number and ask if there is anything else you can do to solve the problem yourself. That is what I did and I followed their advice. It saved me the cost of a service call out and they were very helpful. Good luck

Hotpoint DWT10 Dishwasher error codes/lights


food stuck in drain pump remove and clean out or scoop out - soak up all water then fill with 3 or 4 hot litres of water . cancel programme , start new one ( first thing unit does is switch to drain cycle ).
Then rock machine back and forth - this sometimes frees jammed debris thus pumping out of machine.
This works for me i have done it several times and it works

Dishwasher tripping the circuit breaker


Andy, leave the breaker off and remove the toe panel (bottom panel) from the dishwasher. Remove the cover of the junction box where the cord connection or wiring is made. Look at the wire caps and see if they are not burnt. Sometimes these connections become loose and arch, tripping the breaker. If so, cut the wires, strip a new end and reconnect. Catriver...post back.
