Hotpoint Dishwashers - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support


Have a hotpoint aquarius dishwasher Won't work powers up Red light comes on with salt 2 nd red light come on showing X What is the X? Please

Here's what you can do to address this issue:
  1. Check the Salt Level: Ensure that the salt reservoir is filled with dishwasher salt. The dishwasher needs salt to soften the water and improve the cleaning performance. If the salt level is low or empty, refill the reservoir with dishwasher salt.
  2. Check the Salt Dispenser Cap: Make sure that the salt dispenser cap is securely closed. If it's not closed properly, it can cause the "X" symbol to appear on the display.
  3. Reset the Dishwasher: Try resetting the dishwasher by turning it off at the mains power supply for a few minutes, then turning it back on. This can sometimes clear error codes and restore normal operation.
  4. Check for Blockages: Ensure that the salt dispenser and its inlet are free from any blockages or obstructions that could prevent salt from dissolving properly.
  5. Consult the Manual: If the issue persists, refer to the dishwasher's user manual for troubleshooting steps specific to your model. The manual may provide additional information about error codes and how to resolve them.
If none of these steps resolve the issue and the "X" symbol continues to appear on the display, it may indicate a more significant problem with the dishwasher that requires professional diagnosis and repair. In such cases, contacting Hotpoint customer service or a qualified appliance technician for assistance is recommended.

Where to put rinse aid in cdw10 dishwasher

Rinse aid makes dishes sparkle more as it improves their drying. The rinse aid container is situated on the inside of the door. You should fill the rinse aid container when indicator lights up on the container and the rinse aid indicator light on the control panel flashes. You can use simple vinegar as a rinse aid (white is best but apple or malt is fine). Adding rinse aid. To open the dispenser, turn cap anticlockwise. Take care when you pour in the rinse aid to avoid it overflowing. You can regulate the amount of rinse aid used by the dishwasher, move the adjuster which you will find under lid. The amount of rinse aid needs to be increased if the dishes appear dull or you can see circular stains. The amount of rinse aid needs to be reduced if the dishes are sticky or see white streaks. 4a742317-5f4e-4dc2-8132-3e560755df09.png You can choose from six different positions. It is normally set to 4.

FDW60 flashing 'eco' light error

I had this problem and discovered it was due to a leak. The float switch attached to the bottom panel was operating. Pull out the mains plug, tip the machine on it's side (water will escape so get a mop ready), remove the bottom panel, 3 screws front and back, disconnect the connector from the float switch. Tape the connecter up out of the way and stand your machine back up. Try running it now. If you have a leak somewhere then you will get a puddle under the machine. If no leak, then I would suspect the float switch itself.

I have hotpoint intergrated dishwasher model LTB4M116. Recently it has started to turn itself off.

Check the leak tray inside the base of the machine and see if there is water in there. There is a sensor to detect small leaks.

I have hotpoint aquarius dishwasher FDM554,had it around 7years,gets a deep clean every month. When I turn it on,its making all the noises of it running its cycle but no water is getting in? I have pulled it out and checked all pipes,everything seems fine? Any suggestions of what the problem is?

I once bumped the water supply shut-off under the sink and turned the supply off at the shutoff. Other than that, have you had any work done on the hot water tank recently ?
