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

I recently bought a house (appliances came with it). The dishwasher is model #HSD2504J01WW. It does not get the dishes even slightly clean. There are food particles on all items, even glasses which had no food in/on them. I have made sure the waterhose to the dishwasher is wide open so enough water flows to it. I have run vinegar through a cycle....I am not sure how old this model is, the previous owner had the house for 4 years and it was here then. I do not want to spend alot repairing it,


Answers :

Hi,
The symptoms that you are giving could be caused by a number of different things...and by what you are saying I would even suspect multiple issues there.

Spray arms are probably filling with crud, which after setting for awhile released and is plugging the holes in the spray arms...

Soap cup may not be releasing on time...often happens after a period of non-use...

Heating element may be burnt out...

dishwasher may not be draining properly...

pump may be going bad and the unit is not producing proper pressure...

Any of these could cause your problem and likely a couple of these problems exist...

If it were me I would probably be thinking new....

Dishwasher just started leaving food residue on dishes after washing. We usually don't rinse beforehand but even when we do this it's still happening. Can I run something thru a cycle to give the washer a good clean out? I've cleaned the filter (nothing there), tried to clean the spinning arm as well as I could and looked for any other food that might be clogging things up. Dishwasher came house - think it's about 6-8 years old. Otherwise works great.

Me and my partner just bought a new house and yesterday we tried the dishwasher for the first time. I'm not sure which model we have, but it is a white Westinghouse Dishwasher with 5 wash options. The problem we have is that there seems to be water leaking from the bottom of the dishwasher at the front (sort of where the door is attached to the dishwasher). Do you know what we can do about this?

Dishes and glassware are not clean after a cylce is done. I do not overload. You can even see lip marks and film on the drinking glasses. The silverware has white film on it. The cups and glasses have food particles in them. I've even tried using the pots and pan cyle on a regular load and they still don't come out clean. I do rinse before putting in the dishwasher. I use Cascade or Palmolive and I use a rinse aid. Model DU850DWGB1.

I have a Siemens Dishwasher. I'm not sure of the model but it is built in, has concealed controls and was purchased about 6 years ago at Best Buy. It sort of looks like the SL85. When started, it runs for a few minutes and then starts to make a horrible sound. ALmost a grinding sound but may also be like water trying to get through a small opening. The sound does not stop even after turning off the DW and even the power to it. Only turning off the water supply does it stop. Help?

Hi I've inherited a Zanussi DA6142 Dishwasher from a recent house move. It was treated quite poorly by students who I suspect ran it without the filters in place. I've used a dishwasher cleaner and was able to pull out the lower spray arm and rinse out all the crud that was blocking it (small stones, food, plastic, pieces of glass, paper, etc) but I cannot for the life of me work out how to get the upper spray arm out. The PDF manual I've downloaded for this model says DO NOT remove upper spra

During the cleaning of our dishwasher (ADG7952 model), it started beeping and there was a F8 message reading on the panel. The water has not drained away. We have tried to clean the filter and remove excess water left. Unfortunately, we cannot find the user manual-not sure that it was left when we moved into the house. Not sure what the problem may be?

I have a GE dishwasher model # PDW7880. The dishes are not clean even after running the dishwasher for two cycles. Also, the soap often doesn't dissolve. There are no dishes blocking the soap dispenser so I'm not sure why this is happening. In the manual, it says the air gap or disposer is clogged. Where is the disposer? Thank you. Sue

I have a Kenmore Elite Dishwasher about 7 years old. The Model # is 665-16462300. It works beautifully, except that about every 2 months the spray flow intensity ( and the cleanliness of the dishes) drops significantly. The cause is the metal screen located just upstream from the sump is clogged with food particles. I have taken apart the dishwasher several times to remove, clean and replace the screen. This fix works for about 2 months, then another cleaning is required, even though we h

Sure that it's on all the rest, but can't see it so well. I've heard such a thing can be caused by a faulty inlet valve. Where is that and how do I test for it?
