Lights 1 and 2 flashing indesit IDL40


I used the solution above and my dishwasher now working!!! I would add, plenty of towels and a tray or three to catch the stinking water that comes out of the outfow when you tip it up. Yes 6 screws to remove the back, but on the Indesit IDL40 two additional longer screws in the centre are helpful to remove. Then just tuck the bit that was attached out of the way. My pump was cream and white - check out pumps online to see what they look like. Undo the one screw holding the pump in place and then you have to twist it to release three little pegs. I washed outs loads of small bits of grit. Then easy to put back together. Re-attach the drain pipe to your drain, electric plug at wall and water inflow pipe. (Check for leaks!) I am so happy! Took me two hours but I had to hunt for the info and find the hidden screwdrivers. Husband will be pleased I think.

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.

D41 Model. Switch on, small beep, pump starts, small beep, first green light flashes, no water enters the machine


Check that the water is turned on. There may be a fitting with a screw driver slot in it. This slot shows the direct of the hole that lets the water through and therefore it should be lined up with the pipe direction.

If it isn't turn it through 90 degrees.

Lights keep flashing


Have you have checked the waste pipe is not kinked and raised to about level with the top of the machine? If you have checked these things it could be the waste pump located at the rear right corner in the base of the unit.
To acess the pump tilt the machine to 45degrees and remove the base plate(6 screws) remove the two wires from the float(brown and pink) and move the plate out of your way.In the rear right corner you will see the waste pump.remove the pump and check the impelor is turning freely.If not dissmantle the pump(3 screws)and carefully remove any debris.Re-assemble.good luck.

Pull the machine out and tip it carefully to one side, if water comes out from the base then the problem is the union on the upper feed pipe. Remove the top inner dish rack and twist the star shaped nut clockwise gently! Make sure you have got as much of the water out as possible, stand the unit back up and turn put it into cycle.

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.
