Indesit IDL530 Dishwasher Leaking

I have had my IDL530 for one year, never had a problem with it until recently - when it has been loaded and switched on, it starts to leak from the bottom right hand side around half way through the cycle - is there something I can do to fix the problem or do I need to call an Engineer?

    My dishwasher is also leaking from the back right hand side of the machine. It seems to be coming from the drain hose.
    Can anyone tell me how to dismantle the dishwasher to get access to the inside where the hose connects , as this is where the problem is occuring.

I fixed it myself in the end, the drain hose had a split in it and needed replacing. The problem I had was getting to the drain hose, as it is attached internally to the pump in the bottom of the dishwasher.

Here`s how to get to it:

First, remove the two screws from the back of the dishwasher on the bottom plate, there should be one on the far left and one on the far right.
Put a towel on the floor to soak up any excess water and tip the machine onto its back, so the door is pointing upwards.
At the bottom of the dishwasher you will see two more screws holding the plate on.
Remove these and carefully detach the plate.
You will notice a microswitch on the inside of the plate that has an orange and white wire connected to it.
Make a note of which way round the wires go, as the connector can be put on either way. Remove the connector from the micro switch and then completely remove the plate.
You will see the drain hose attached to the pump with a brass butterfly clip. You will need pliers to open the clip and slide it off the hose where it connects to the pump.
Once you have done this, you need to remove the white plastic clip that goes round the drain hose at the point where it exits the washer.
This clip slides up and away from yourself ( when facing the dishwasher on its back ), then it splits open and comes off.
This should allow you to remove the drain pipe.
Once that is off , its a simple case of getting a replacement pipe and fitting it. ( Follow instructions in reverse )
A word of warning though - I hunted high and low for a replacement and ended up ordering the wrong one from Partmaster.
The pipe MUST have a 90 degree bend in one end, if you search partmaster for Indesit IDL500 drain hose you will see one for £7.99.
You must get this one, as I made the mistake of ordering what I thought was a cheaper alternative ( £4.99 ), The cheaper one also had the 90 degree bend, BUT the end was too small.
Compare the images of the two and you will see that the more expensive one has a larger end at the 90 degree section.

Hope this helps.

I had water coming from both the bottom right and left hand side of the door and couldnt figure out what it was, so called a local engineer who scratched his head for 30 minutes charged me a fiver and didn't fix the problem.
Called Indesit, who charged 90 quid for one of their engineersto come and cut 1 inch from the bottom of the door seal on each side, which fixed the problem. The moral is don't call the Indesit engineer when this is a problem that they are aware of as they will still charge you 90 quid callout fee for a five minute job.

If the water is coming from the door you may have an issue of oversudsing Place a cup of vinegar upright in the dishwasher and run it through a cycle this will cut any residue build up. You may need to repeat this. put a towel on the floor just in case . Check that the door gasket is fully attatched and undamaged. If the water is coming from under the dishwasher it could be one of several problems from a bad connection to bad valve to a loose or broken hose to a problem with the pump. you should probably schedule service before the small leak causes bigger problems.

Shortly after turning my indesit idl530 on a fault code appears


the problem you are getting is a f01 fault,this is water in the base part of the antiflood devise.to check this if you tip the appliance backwards and water comes from the back at the bottom this is the problem,if you do this till it stops and then leave for approx 24hrs to dry out any water that may have gone on to motor,then check by switching on to start a program,if appears to work ok but then goes back to the same fault(draining all the time and light flashing)you will have to remove base and check for leaks.
