I had a similar problem every time i bailed the sump out by hand and turned the machine back on it would fill the sump or just shut off.

Having spent ages checking various site it boiled down to one of three things there is a thermostat switch underneath they are know to go on the indesits and cost next to nothing to replace

second cause and most probable is to take machine outside before you do this front cover below front door removes to give access to pump you ll know it the pump because it has a pipe rinning into it and one out on my indesit i turned it upside down and got really easy access to it comes of easily take it to pices bit by bit really easy probably need small allun key depends on model check put for foreign objects , spinx blackpool rock etec etc only kidding it might be a bit of plastic or something that stop the spindle turning freely inside the pump if you find anything clean put back and off you go if pump is knackered you can get them off the web for 4.95
last but not least is the problem that mine actually had in the end and the easiest to fix `water pressure` if there is insufficient water pressure the machine regognised this and activate a shut off valve the machine lights flash you can reset the programme but it still does nt work. take the water pipe off the back put it into a bucket and open the valve you ll now what good pressure looks like mine was poor when i took the adjacent kitchen unit out it transpired a shut off vavle had been placed on the pipework the vavle had never been opened fully by the plumber and was restricting the water supply . take your time dont rush and be methodical take advantage of a local parts supplier ash them what most repairers will do first. it can be very rewarding to find that a/ you can do it and b/youve saved 60 or 70 quid in the process.

ps never mess with the machine whilst connected to the mains or spiky hair might come free with the repair and do take the machine outside or you ll have water evrywhere trust me

Almost certain to be a power pcb failure due to the fact it fills and drains at the same time this is a regular fault symptom on indesit laundry appliances. Word of caution tho inde pcb's are generic to a range and the software must be programmed via a lap top to your specific appliance so you can't just order a pcb and pop it in sorry

Indesit iwb5113 keeps filling up


The water level in your, and most other, washing and dishwashing machines is controlled by an air pressure switch that senses water level by the rising air pressure compressed in the pressure, (level), switch body itself. This air pressure is usually transmitted by a thin rubber tube on the bottom of the washing machine drum, or sump hose. As the water gets higher in the drum, air is compressed in the level switch until it operates, and turns the fill valves off. The pressure switch is always mounted at the top of the washing machine cabinet - look for a circular switch with the thin rubber or plastic tube fitted into the bottom. What can happen is if the rubber tube rubs against moving parts in the washer, it can get a hole worn in it - so the air does not compress and the water doesn't turn off.. You will have to examine the tube very carefully to find holes like this. Alternatively, the tube could have come off, or blocked with limescale at the bottom end - try removing the tube at the pressure switch end and blowing through it - any blockage must be removed. A last, rare, possibility is the rubber diaphragm in the pressure switch is leaking - but very very rare. Most modern machines have an electronic backup that measures fill time in case the pressure switch fails. If your machine floods, it doesn't have this.

HiTo all iv been having problems with my dishwasher its a indesit aaa class idf 125 it keeps turning its self off then there is no power at all iv now had it off fr 3jd mounths and now its working again...


Could be anything but check your water heater element first - prime cause of power tripping. Also check for leaks from the sump into the wash motor / electrics etc Usually manifests as fills, runs for a bit then cuts out as leak starts. Be very careful with electrical safety on this one - water and electricity are a deadly combination. ensure the power if off, and machine unplugged before examining. test for safety after the repair.

Dishlex Global 200 won't fill with water


Shut off the water to the dishwasher. Take the line off where it connect to the dishwasher. Get out a bucket (dishpan, etc.) and put the open line into the bucket, turn on the water. Does it have a good stream? If not the problem is in the supply coming from your house. If the stream is good, house water is fine. Connect the supply back up, find the electrical solenoid that the water feed goes to and disconnect the line on the other side of it. Try turning the dishwasher on with bucket catching water, when the solenoid clicks on is there a good stream of water? If not either solenoid is bad, or maybe there is a filter (screen) before the solenoid that needs cleaned. If there is a good stream after the solenoid, then the controls must be bad telling it to shut off too early.
