KevinWhiteJA :

Hi Brad

KevinWhiteJA :

Welcome to Just answer

KevinWhiteJA :

Please tell me its complete model number

KevinWhiteJA :

and how old is it ?

Customer:

Hi Its about 13 years old maybe 15 it says hotpoint aquarius f61 on the front

KevinWhiteJA :

there should be a model number inside the door

Customer:

I'm at work sorry

KevinWhiteJA :

OK, the problem is with the water inlet valve that is bad and will need replacement....if you want to do it yourself please let me know the model number and I will provide you replacement instructions...you can also try to clean the inlet hose and inlet valve before replacing

Customer:

its cream in colour one dial to the left which is a start dial then about 4 buttons to the right on is 60 degrees 40 30 and maybe quick

Customer:

is this at the rear where the pipe enters the dishwasher

Customer:

when you say I can try cleaning it do you mean the old one to see if that works ?

Customer:

any ideas where i can best buy this water inlet valve

KevinWhiteJA :

Yes it is at the rear and yes cleaning it might make the old one work

KevinWhiteJA :

you can buy it from espares.co.uk

Customer:

ok i did look last night and the pipe enters the dishwasher via a letter box type plastic plate and there is a plastic connection just inside

Customer:

Do i need the model number from inside the door? I assume that changing it is just take off and clean then replace if this doesnt work then replace with new part and vioala

Customer:

i thought this was the answer before i asked but wanted to make sure do you think it could be anything else?

KevinWhiteJA :

No, I believe it is the Inlet valve that will need replacement as everything else seems to be working fine

KevinWhiteJA :

You can get back to me if you need any assistance and I will help with no additional charges.....Is there anything else I can assist you with today ?

Customer:

no thats great thanks kevin
