It is likely the flood switch at base of dishwasher has activated due to a leak.

You will have to dry the leak and then try again.
Make sure the mains power is shut when you are working on the dishwasher to avoid electrocution.

Dishwasher prog light is flashing and pump is running nothing els


ok, just a few minutes after posting this as a fault, I have opened the covers, the machine has a leak, the undertray has a sensor which has detected this, flashing light (prog 45 degC wash) flashing is a code to indicate leak sensor active.
Other prog lights flashing indicate a different fault, the following details each... this is a cut/paste from another forum site, copied without permission....

Cannot guarantee 100%accurate but you all might like what the flashing fault codes actually refer to, note what follows are pointers to what bit has gone wrong only. You should have the programmes running left to right: led1=intensive,led2=normal,led3=eco,led4=fast,led5=prewash,led6=delicate wash.ok so when this heap of western european tosh goes wrong one or two lights will flash this is what they mean:led3=m/ch has o/flowed water . ie the base underneath has sensed a leak.4=i/let h2o valve u/s or slow fill.5=thermister(electronic thermostat) is u/s or more likely the pcb .6=timeout heating which means the thermister senser between the door halves has become faulty or detached.3+4=no pump out,slow pump out,pcb u/s,blockage.4+5=tap off i/let valve.3+5=wash motor not coming on -seized,winding o/cic.but can also mean mesh plte filter badly blocked.1+4software fault with pcb.4+6=heating cic u/s (usually the heater tube )but can be the heater relay on pcb.3+4=pcb u/s.I don`t except any responsiblity for this being spot on or near spot on!! hope this helps someone.Try NOT to electrocute yourselves please!! If your not at all confident walk away and get "someone" who knows what they are doing.Cheers. jawa592

Hotpoint aquarius fdw60


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 dish washer aquarius


I had the same problem with my Hotpoint Aquarius the eco and fast light flashing, it would go through the pre wash cycle and stop.
I cleaned the filters etc; and it still didn’t work.
I turned the machine off and unplugged it at the mains,
I drained all the water, turned the machine on the side and took the bottom off, I removed the drain pump off the bottom (this was held on with a single screw after taking the screw out slightly turn it to one side as its like a bayonet fit on a light bulb also remove the wire connection and a rubber drain pipe)
Once the pump was removed I could clearly see the impellor it was very tight and I couldn’t spin it after a closer examination I could see a foreign object jamming it I removed this with a pair of tweezers, replaced the pump and put it all back together and it now works perfectly.
I hope this can be of some help.
Peter.

Empties and fills but boils the water


Can you hear/see any washing sound/spray, it sounds to me like the wash pump could be faulty.
