Hotpoint aquarius fdw60 tripping problem

\015 Hotpoint aquarius fdw 60 problem. problem is that it is tripping both the socket mcb and rcd at the main board but not the 13A fuse in the plug. when turned on initially it works fine for a few mins then it trips out and if i leave it on when i reset it at the board it sparks at the mcb which as an electrician indicates to me a fault with the dishwasher. iv a feeling its the heater element. also one time i notices the prewash indicator light flashing for about 20 seconds and then move to the next cycle. the machine is approx 3 years old and never gave any hassle untill now. one thing that is constant is the tripping after about 3-5 mins.\015

Answers :

I would agree with you. Everything you say here certainly points to a faulty heating element. The original is fitted with two factory fitted clips so you may need to go to your local garage and get two jubilee clips as they don't usually come with the new element.

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

Leaking FDW60 I have a Hotpoint FDW60 dishwasher. yesterday it tripped our house electrics and then we had water flooding out of the dishwasher. Through a process of elimination I have now discovered that water is leaking from the drainage sump in the centre of the babse down onto the motor or other electrics. I have looked for loose hoses and there are none visible from the base of the dishwasher, can you give some ideas where the water might be coming from?
