Open the dishwasher and take the bottom dish rack out, you will see a really thick steel wire which runs around the edge of the bottom of the dishwasher in a loop, that is what heats your water.

check to see if this has snapped

Hotpoint fdw60 4th & 6th lights flashing


These two lights indicate a fault in the heating circuit.


You would require to have access to and be able to use a multimeter to test the heater if the machine isn't actually heating the water.


If it is heating the water then obviously we know the fault isn't with the heater.


Check the heater first.

Take the door apart and check the wiring in the door isn't broken.


If everything checks ok, take the pcb out, look for burned or dry joints around the relays.

My fdw60 dishwasher stops when it reaches drying the drying light and the salt refill light keeps flashing what could this be


I have the same problem. This means the dishwasher is overheating. Sometimes the plates are too hot to touch and we are loosing the glaze from our crockery. There does not seem to be a thermostat spare part and therefore I changed the heating element but this has not solved the problem.

Hotpoint fdw60 dishwasher, heater not heating water or drying.


If the heater is ok and the wiring is also not burnt out, then the fault will likely be the heater relay on the pcb. (Which means usually replacing the board).

FDW60 Fast and Delicate Lights Flash


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.
