FDW60 Fast and Delicate Lights Flash

Hi,
My Dishwasher appears to work as normal, nearly all the way through the cycle. However near the end the Fast and Delicate lights start to flash indicating a heating problem. The water appears to heat and pump in/out as normal all the way through however near the end of the rinse cycle just before the drying phase the Fast and Delicate lights flash and the dishwasher empties.

Do you have any ideas as to what the fault could be.

This is a bad control board that if replaced will only repeat in a short time .My advice is to contact the manufacturer and complain,you have the right as a consumer to do so.

Error messages.
The dishwasher is equipped with a
safety system which is able to
detect any operating anomalies.
These anomalies are signalled by
the rapid flashing of one of the
wash cycle indicator lights M.
If the indicator light for the soak
cycle flashes (see wash cycle table),
cancel the wash cycle by following
the instructions indicated in the
"Modifying a wash cycle in
progress" paragraph on page 4.
Now check whether there is any
water in the mains supply and that
the tap is turned on; if the error
message persists, then call for
technical assistance, indicating
which message appeared.
If the indicator light for any wash
cycle apart from the soak cycle
flashes rapidly, turn the appliance
off and call for technical
assistance, indicating which
message appeared.
Troubleshooting
You have checked
everything, but the
dishwasher still doesn't
work and the problem
persists?
Call an authorised service centre
near you and remember to mention:
? the type of malfunction
? the model mark (Mod?.) and the
serial number (S/N?.) indicated on
the rating plate located on the inner
door, to one side.

Dwf50 hotpoint aquarius dishwasher


hi, just found this forum after searching the web 4 a solution to my hotpoint DWF50 problem.
I came down this morning to a machine which base tray was full of water and lights 3 ECO & 4 Fast flashing.
Anyway my solution was as i had seen a hotpoint engineer do once before was to press the start/reset button trip the catch, to fool the machine into thinking the door is closed then put in a program, press start, the machine hums slightly but doesnt do anything then after removing the large filter from the tray at the bottom underneath the lower basket insert a length of wire, with a loop on the end (Tip i used a wire coat hanger from the dry cleaners) poke in ythe hole that the dirty water drains from, after a bit of poking about the pump started working and the water drained away. Tip place a hook at the other end of your wire impliment to put your finger in to stop the wire getting caught in the pump mechanisim. After wards u have to hook back the door catch to the normal position, Tip another piece of the coat hanger with a right angled piece at the end will do this. This worked for me, saved me some money esp as D & G insurance ran out 2 weeks ago.....stu

HOTPOINT DISHWASHER FDW60


Hi,

I have just had my dishwasher fixed by Hotpoint, as the heater was working and the dishwasher only stopped with the fast and delicate lights just before the drying process he replaced the main control board. This has solved the problem, I suspected the fault to be the thermistor as the heater seemed to be getting to hot but I had no idea where it was.

It turns out the thermistor is attached to the main control board and hangs down behind the front door that gives just a rough temperature level for the main control board.

As it's soldered directly onto the control board I would suggest replacing the whole control pcb for anyone with this fault unless you can find any spec details for the thermistor.

Dishwasher flashes on Fast Wash


I am hoping I have just fixed mine with same problem. Couple weeks ago started stopping at start of cycle with fast button flashing. Check filters so one on top of unside machine and one on tap if you have one on there. Mine were blocked but still wouldnt work. I pulled out machine to find a kink in the water pipe. I have straightened this out and up to now its working. Fast button flashing refers to water inlet problem.
