Indesit D41 - buzzing sound

Hi - My Indesit D41 switches on ok, drains and then fills with water but then stops with a buzzing sound and stops at that point. I can repeat the cycle and stop it after it has drained, or after it fills the bottom with water but it doesn't seem to move on from this point. There's no flashing light. Tried pulling the machine out to see if it has kinks etc but all seems ok.

you need to check the inlet walve . when you start the unit you say it drains. so after the drain do you hear the water entering the dishwasher? If you hear a sound like a buzzing noise that would be the inlet valve working. if thats the case there is a clog at the screen in the valve not allowing the water or enough water in the tub. seeing that this is a portable unit you will also want to check to make sure the fill hose is not kinked up anywhere in the cabinet or under neath the dishwasher. If you hear no buzzing noise you need to check the inlet valve with a meter to first make sure your getting power to it and that the valve itself if good. check these things out and let me know what you found and we can go from there

try testing the door interlock, actually this is only a micro switch inside the door behind the plastic front panel, there could also be the possibility there is a broken wire behind the door skin just above the hinge part, take care when working on appliances do not force parts to remove them and always unplug at the mains hope i have helped, if so please rate me well

Had a similar problem (flashing lights 1 and 2). Drained the machine by diconnecting the outlet hose and using a shallow bowl on the floor. Removed and cleaned filters. Forced clean water through by using a garden hose pipe(you can only do this one way, you cannot force water down the outlet pipe). Removed and cleaned the pump (you have to do this from under the machine but easy enough). Finally ensuring the waste trap under the sink was clear. Bingo!! No parts, no expensive engineer.

Will not start cycles


is it doing the initial pump out then filling with water and stopping b4 the wash cycle? if so it may be that the wash motor has failed(you may hear a buzzing) or the pcb is faulty. if the water does not fill into the base there may be a valve fault of a supply fault. any engineer worth his salt should be able to diagnose this fault on first visit and return with a part so dont expect multi visits.

When i start my dishwasher it sounds like it is filling normally then error lights 1 &3 (3h&9h) flash rapidly and water begins to drain away



This indicates an error with the pressure switch and indicates that it is jammed on full. First try switching off ther AC power to the washer and letting it stand for 30 minutes. Then switch back on the AC power and see if the error is still present. If it is then the pressure switch will need to be replaced. The pressure switch is how the machine determines how much water there is in the machine and if the switch is indicating the machine is full it will automatically pump and empty as soon as new water enters the machine.
