Dishwasher not resetting before new cycle

Model: Indesit D41 Before starting a new cycle you first need to select reset on the dial. When doing this, the drainage pump operates for about a minute followed by the pre-wash light blinking indefinitely and I cannot get a washing cycle to start. There is no water present at bottom of unit and I have tried pouring a basin of water into the unit and repeating the procedure. The water is pumped out but the cycle refuses to initiate. The indesit helpline have suggested that there is a leak in the base and water is trapped in the base, can this easily be fixed?

    WHEN TRYING TO START A NEW LOAD THE MOTOR IS RUNNING BUT THE GREEN LIGHT SHOULD STAY SOLID BUT IT STARTS TO FLASH RAPIDLY AND THE MACHINE WONT GO ANY FURTHER . NO WATER IS ENTERING

    Our WHIRLPOOL DISHWASHER MODEL GU2500XTP had the Accu Sensor light blinking constantly and it would not turn off. Tried unplugging the unit, resetting the fuse, pushing cancel button etc. Had problems re-starting the cycle. Read this article solution and tried it holding Normal Wash Button with Heated Dry, after several sessions of doing this it reset the dishwasher.



    Thank You

I have had the same problem. The issue is with the dip tray + overflow detector under the machine. What happened is the dip tray is full of water and the overflow detects this condition and prevents the machine from starting.
It looks like there is no water present in the machine but the drip tray, located underneath, is full. Give the machine a good shake and you should see water.
I solved it easily: just get a mop, lift the machine's front so that it tilts backwards and collect the water as it escapes the drip tray towards the back of the machine. The tray can collect quite a bit of water so you're likely to need a few tilts until it's empty.
In my case, the underlying case had been a previous mistake - we didn't allow the machine to finish completely and water had remained on it. Somehow the water had found its way to the tray. Other causes my be another appliance sharing the same waste pipe and pushing water down the dishwasher's waste system.

    Underlying cause may also be the machine being at an angle. Make sure yours is level or has a slight inclination to the front (just a few degrees). This prevents water from going into the dip tray too easily.

It look like you have a cold water supply problem- check water entrance pipe, myaybe it was bend (if you have there a tap - see it is open). Check that water entrance valve work (it is an electromagnet valve,loocated at the pipe's enterance to the machine). If it doesn't work, test that it get power. In case it get power and dosen't work - You can easyly open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!!! Check as well for valve's coil resistance. In case you have no resistance measurement - you should replace for a new valve.

SOURCE: Indesit D41 dishwasher problem

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

SOURCE: Indesit D167. When cycle selected no water pumping or filling but 1 & 2 green indicators on.

Tilt your dishwasher forwards. Be aware that water will come out ouf the bottom. Once this is clear your washer should be Ok.
Good Luck

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.

Dishwasher


hello mate, i bought a brand new indesit d40. plumbed it in and the 1st light kept flashing, phoned the technical centre and they said its the anti flood mechanism kicking in and preventing it from working. although water was going in it was not going into the dishwasher but filling the base and the safety feature just shut it off. said to get back in touch with comet who i bought it off for a new one because its a manufacturing problem. put the new one in and theres no problem. wouldn't have a clue how to fix it myself though.
