What year was the indesit Dg 5000 made and is it in the fire hazard catogorie the dishwasher


Such data are available only to their factories and offices for quality. We do not have information on fires in their dishwashers.
I think it is more important to determine where it comes from smell of fire so as not to endanger your property and lives.
So, I suggest that you stop using the dishwasher until you clear the reasons of bad smell of fire.

It smells all the time can not get rid of it


This will potentially sound odd, but run the 90 degree cycle with 3 dishwasher tablets in the drum. The smell is bacterial and probably the result of a build up of residue from biological soap powder (Which is simply bacteria that eat your stains). Dishwasher tablets are anti-bacterial and will kill the bugs making the smell

My new omega washing mashine shows an E2 error code 5 miniutes into the wash how do I fix this?


Hello,

Manufactured by omega washing mashine have an electronic controlpanel that must be unlocked in order to set or make changes to your washingcycle.
E2 indicates a water leak. When a leak occurs, it trips thefloat device by dumping water into the dishwasher's base. The incoming watervalve will be switched off, and the drain pump will turn on until the sump isempty
However, if an error light is blinking on your dishwasher'scontrol panel, the panel must be reset before you can gain access. Blinkinglights on your washer control panel may signal a mechanical problem that needsto be repaired. If the lights continue to blink after you've reset the controlpanel, contact Sears to service omega washing mashine or considertroubleshooting the appliance yourself carefully.Instructions
1 Press and hold the "Heated Dry" button onyour omega washing mashine for four seconds to unlock the dishwasher controlpanel.
2 Press the "Heated Dry," "Normal Wash,""Heated Dry" and "Normal Wash" buttons one after theother, in fairly quick succession.
3 Wait for the washer to run a short diagnostic test.
4 Press the "Cancel/Drain" button at the endof the diagnostic test cycle. This should reset the control panel on your omegawashing mashine. Thankfor using fixya.

The washing smells of dirty water, have tried all sorts, but cannot get rid of the smell.


Several things to try:

Check the empty pump filter, that may be clogged with smelly debris
Ensure that the empty pipe is correctly inserted into the drain pipe and that there is a trap on the drain that stops smells coming back
Finally (This may sound odd) with no clothing in the machine, throw 3 dishwasher tablets in the drum and run it through the hottest cycle the machine can run. Smells can often be bacterial caused by biological washing powder which builds up bugs in the machine. Dishwasher tablets are anti-bacterial and will kill the bugs.

There is a fusty smell coming from the machine how can i get rid of this


This is probably a bacteria smell from boilogical powder residue building up.

The trick for this is to throw three DISHWASHER tablets into the drum of the machine and run it through the hottest cycle you can with no clothing in the machine. Dishwasher tablets are anti bacterial and will kill off the bacteria creating the smell

Mildew Smell


I have no idea if this will actually work, I have never tried it myself, but a guy I worked with on washing machines years ago used to swear by putting 3 DISHWASHER tablets in the drum and then running the hottest cycle that the machine would run (White cottons 90 degrees if you have it).

Any of you have a dishwasher and want to try throwing 3 tablets into the washing machine and reporting back on the result?
