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

I have a Hotpoint Aquarius SDW 60 The delay 3hr &12hr lights are flashing at the same time. Machine won't start. If the door is slamed shut. It get stuck on the Fast & Prewash 40 degree cycle. and stays there.
if the eco light is flashing, this indicates that saftey float switch has activated in the base of the dishwasher usually caused by a leak, a polystyrene float activates a microswitch which cuts of the water inlet supply
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.
