    Hi Ian, I had exactly the same problem on my 15 month old FWD60 ie the pin hole in the waste pipe which sprayed water onto the heater. After replacing the pipe the machine 'clicks' a few times when I press the power button and if I start the program some water flows into dishwasher, it then stops with the 'fast 40' and 'delicate 50' lights flashing. I noticed the float sensor on the base cover which checked out ok. I also checked the heater which showed open circuit on my resistance meter, so its either blown or a very strange type of heater. Not impressed with the overall design as many electrical connections are exposed and liable water contact should any leaks occur. Horrible feeling that this may have damaged the control circuits on my machine in which case the machine is probably a write off in financial terms. Hope I'm wrong. Will continue to attempt repair when I get more time. Best of luck with your machine.

    Same problem, I purchased the FDW65 two years ago. Subsequently this week it court fire. After inspection, a leak from the drainage pipe small pin hole caused water to spill on to the main pump motor. I was shocked and would not be looking to buy from Hotpoint in the future. Increasingly and also with my washer from Hotpoint I have had more problems due to poor quality of parts than any other company I have purchased from in the past.

On the base of the dishwasher you have a anti fload switch, this has probably got stuck on or has been jammed when replacing the base of the dishwaser, I would take a look at this first.

Have a bosch dishwasher Mod. No. SGI53A55AUSS installed March 2004. All filters clear, exit pump clear and working. Switch on washer can hear exit pump working but machine does not accept water to fill....


Hello,

You said you had water under the dishwasher,did you remove the lower panel below the door and check for water in the base frame as well. Bosch dishwashers have system in the base frame that detects water in base and cuts power off to every component except drain pump till it no longer sees the water in the base.

Hope this helps

Want to take water hose off from back of the machine so I can feed it down the holes in the cupboard then put it back on can this be done easly or do I have to cut a big hole in the cupboard. cheers


Hi there Larry which hose are you refering to the inlet or the waste. You can take the inlet hose of very easily, However the waste pipe is conected to the waste pump inside the machine. If this is the pipe you wish to remove I would drill a bigger hole in the cupboard. let me know if this helps at all. Regards Gary.

Fills with water then dumps water over & over seems that is all it does


Does seem like the anti flood system (polystireene float and micro switch at base of washer is triggered) this device automaticaly pumps water out when triggered due to water leak. The water leak could be from a small hole in pipe or a pipe clamp. The washer will only take in water and pump out water if the device is triggered. You must clear the water leak and dry the base of the washer before it works through the full cycle.

HOOVER HOD6615 DISHWASHER CONTINUAL BEEPING AFTER INITIAL RINSE & REFUSES TO PROCEED TO WASH CYCLE WHATS THE PROBLEM?


This could be a safety trigger due to bottom water leak. A anti flood device (polystireen float and micro switch) that switches washer in shut off mode and does not continue until the water leak (pipe or hose clamp) that causes the float to trigger the device. Check the bottom of the washer for traces of water and rectify any leak before the washer will continue.

Recurring .30 fault on AEG dishwasher. Have tried pulling out machine and tilting back 45 degrees but fault clears and then comes back on next wash. Is there anything else I can do?


This is caused by the Anti-Flood device at the base of the machiene being activated. This device detects water leaks and is a polystireene float / micro switch that puts the machiene in pump out mode only. You need to determine where the leak comes from (pipe or perforated hose pin hole or pipe clamp etc.) If you tilt the washer and some water comes out from the bottom it is a clear indication that there is a small leak.

I want to plumb in a dishwasher but there is no waste pipe for the dishwasher to join on to


Hi,
If there is a kitchen sink nearby you should be able to get a plastic waste pipe adaptor from a hardware store that simply screws in below the sink plug hole and joins to the U-bend pipework. It will have a short stub pipe on it for attaching the dishwasher drain pipe.
Hope this helps. D.

Kenwood Slimline Dishwasher KDW8ST2A


I have a Kenwood Kdw8st2a and have been constantly plagued by the E4 overfill error.

Lifting the front of the dishwasher and tilting it backwards seemed to clear the E4 error only for it to come back after the next wash.

I found eventually that the connection to the U bend under the sink was too narrow and was almost blocked hence the dishwasher was not emptying properly.

I disconnected the dishwasher waste pipe and ran the waste into a bucket for about 6 cycles and it worked fine.

Eventually drilled through the kitchen wall and fitted a lower direct waste pipe to the drain. Overkill maybe buit it hasn't done an E4 since.
