Welcome to Just answer
Please tell me its complete model number
and how old is it ?
Hi Its about 13 years old maybe 15 it says hotpoint aquarius f61 on the front
there should be a model number inside the door
I'm at work sorry
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
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
is this at the rear where the pipe enters the dishwasher
when you say I can try cleaning it do you mean the old one to see if that works ?
any ideas where i can best buy this water inlet valve
Yes it is at the rear and yes cleaning it might make the old one work
you can buy it from espares.co.uk
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
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
i thought this was the answer before i asked but wanted to make sure do you think it could be anything else?
No, I believe it is the Inlet valve that will need replacement as everything else seems to be working fine
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 ?
no thats great thanks kevin
