How to get to heating element on dishwasher hotpoint fdw60


Answers :

If you make sure all the water is out of the machine first. Then if you can try lying the machine on its left side. This will allow you to romove the bottom panel, normally just 2 screws at front and 2 at back, this will give you complete access to all the parts in the base. Element will be a silver round part connected in the water pipes.

We have a Kenwood KDW8ST2A dishwasher. We used to get the error code E3 (when still under warranty) and were told not to use dishwasher tablets as it generated too much foam. The problem has been intermittent but now we get the E3 error every time, no matter what program we run, or how little detergent we put in. I've a feeling its not heating up properly, is there any way to check the heating element? Is it worth attempting a repair?

FDW60 dishwasher Hi My dishwasher is about 15 months old and the problem I have is that it seems to stay on pump and the Ecco45 light is flashing.  A repair company looked at the machine and said that the motor looked like it was leaking and water was getting in the bottom setting off the micro-switch.  He contacted Hotpoint who fitted a new motor today at a cost of £89.85.  Went to use dishwasher tonight and we still have the same problem.  The dishwasher started the washing programme for about
