Re: I have a Hotpoint FDW70 dishwasher
Disconect POWER at breaker or fuse panel which should be on a seperate braker. if not find the power sorce and unplug the device.
FOR SAFTEY Kneel on a thick doormat if you have to disconect power which has a plug. Wait for a an hour so to let all circuits, timers and motors to cool ... with diswasher in the OFF position,
Re-establish POWER. then go ahead and start washer as sugessted by the Manufacturer.
Make sure to notice any other codes that may appear. Or any peculiar noises.
Most default codes appear if water pressure is too low.
Top loaders are natorious for plugged drain lines and can be flushed by the home-ownwr.
Make sure to check that water strainer is not cloged or restricted.
Hotpoints CODES change from year to year, You can contact a Hotpoint Dealer in your area ... Give him the Make, Model, and any Series numbers to him. MOST will tell you what the CODES ARE FOR THAT MODEL OR EVEN E-MAIL ALL OF THEM TO YOU.
Good Luck ... Be Safe

Hi, the interpretation for error code A10 is: A10 = fill solenoid valve triac closed/open circuit - check valve/ operation - machine drains until level switch resets + 30"
Now, to try and solve the problem yourself: Turn off the water supply to the dishwasher & remove the hose, Run the machine for several minutes in a normal position. Turn the machine off, reconnect the fill hose, turn the water back on then turn the machine back on.
If this doesn't solve the problem, then you'll need to call a service person.
hi the fill valve triac is the plastic vlave that the inlet hose connects to you can get them for about £10 you reset the machine after replacing it by switching it on, pressing the power button leaving it off for about a minute then switching it back on, and the onboard diagnostic unit resets automatically.
i have the same on my dishwasher and have just been looking on the net. Found out that the error code A10 means open/short circuit fill value traic. Whatever that means!!! and to book a service engineer. Hope that helps
