I have a problem with a 2yr old Hotpoint FDW60. At the beginning of a cycle it will start to fill with water and then go quiet, which I presume is the water heating. Then, from the back of the machine we here a gurgling sound - it is like steam escaping. This just continues until we switch it off. If I open the machine there is water in the bottom and it is hot.
Any ideas where I look next? There are no error codes on the front.
Spot on - the wash motor was seized. Unfortunately running the dishwasher like this meant the heater was on with no water, so it overheated and melted loads of wires and the black stuff on teh underside of the tub.
Ah well, thanks anyway.

Hi First you have to check the water valve to see if it has power during the time it should be filling the washer , Set the unit to fill and wash you know where it normally starts filling with water , remove the two wires from the water valve and check to see if you have power going to the valve , you have to eleminate things to find out what the problem is , if you have power then check to see if you have water to the valve, if you have water and you have power but you arent getting water then the water valve is bad , and this will be a cheep easy fix , have a good day
You most likely have a stubborn clog in your kitchen drain. Try filling the sinks with warm soapy water and then letting the water drain while also turning on your garbage disposal. Sometimes the extra water pressure will help push the clog through.
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
Most common reason is that the lower spray arm splits on the seem and sprays water under the door, to proove if it is this remove lower spray arm and run through program if no leak fit new arm.
