Having problems with your Hotpoint Dishwashers ?

Hotpoint FWD70 - dispenser flap not opening. My Hotpoint FWD70P detergent dispenser flap does not open during the wash cycle and the wash tablet does not disolve.


Answers :

This has hapened to me twice. I am no expert so treat the following with caution. This is what has worked for me.
\015\012
\015\0121/ I sugest you check the dispenser solenoid - it should be about 1.65K. If it is open circuit buy a new dispenser assy - about £29.00 - try http://www.hotpoint-spares.co.uk/dispenser-assembly-for-fdw70p-p-121945.html. This sorted my first failure.
\015\012
\015\0122/ My second failure occured 18 months later. I removed and checked the solenoid as above. I found the resistance was OK so I put it all back together and it now works OK so I can only think that there was a bad connection at the dispenser which all the disconnection / reconnection sorted out (two connectors at dispenser).
\015\012
\015\0123/ A word of warning - take especial care not to damage the seal aroud the dispenser - this seal is somewhat delicate.
\015\012
\015\0124/ If all else fails, try an expert !

I have a couple of problems. Firstly, the auto programme now shows a cycle time of 199mins but actually takes much longer than that to complete - more like 4 hours. On the quick (!) wash cycle the time is 97 minutes, whereas it should be less than 30 mins. Second problem, the detergent box flap won't stay shut when loading, so I have to put the tablet in loose in the bottom. Could the 2 problems be related?
