Having problems with your Hotpoint 24 in. FDW60 Free-standing Dishwasher ?

Odd fault codes then stops working.

\015 My machine first completed a wash and dry with the two lights flashing for "blocked filter" ('Eco' & ''Prewash). There was water still in the machine but I cleaned the filters although they were clean. Did an on/off reset, next the the 'Eco' & 'Fast' lights were flashing (no code in book for this). On/off reset again.Now it will fill and boil water without doing anything. It will drain if I start gain.Any ideas?\015

Answers :

I had a hotpoint engineer try to fix this type of problem.
He insisted that there was something stuck in the bottom of the filter or pump.

Sure enough there was.
1. Unplug your dishwaser at the wall. Check its off or disconnected.
2. Remove the grill under the bottom rack.
3. Ensure that the filter is free from food and other obstacles and clean the filter.
4. Before replacing filter etc, get a piece of metal coat hanger wire and care fully insert it down the channel under the filter to free any lodged items. You may also see a small white impleller try to turn this with your finger or the coat hanger wire (this is the info from the engineer!).
5. replace filter and retry a wash.

This routine fixed or machine twice and will hopefully fix yours!

Don't forget to rate me!

fyi
The third time about 1 year later this occured again and even hotpoint gave up as they could not fix the machine. (after multiple visits). I think that the two flashing lights are were a red herring and the dishwasher had a separate intermittent fault. Hotpoint replaced the unit for a mimum charge. Callout + 40.

A feew weeks ago Smeg STA6047 dishwasher stopped in the beginning of the programme after approx. ten minutes, and gave the error code E9. There had been clearly water in the machine, but maybe not enough and the detergent box was not open.

First the washer gave the error code E8, on the second try E9. And now it does not start at a

I have a Diplomat ADP 8520 dishwasher (possibly SMEG manufacture) which will not stop trying to empty. There are 4 leds lit reading left to right and it beeps. I have read on some forums about pressing the programme button 4 times or holding it down for ten seconds to clear the fault but neither of these solutions work. I thought maybe that the drain was blocked but I put the pipe directly into the sink and it empties ok, problem is, it does not stop.


Fault is probably water in the bottom tray operating the anti-flood device. take bottom front panel off and mop out the water and it will work. if fault reoccurs then you have a leak ... Dishwashers
