    Exactly the same problem started today!

  • cbeebie Jan 09, 2009

    Problem seems to prevent water going in though water is there at the macine end of the hose. The machine tries to start then first light starts to flash and the usual noise stays on - is it pump buzzing?

    It sounds like its trying to fill with water then the 1st lights starts flashing.

  • Brudie Mar 28, 2009

    I put the dishwasher overnight as I always do and in the morning the kitchen was flooded, and the inside had water upto the door, (hense the flood!). Once the water was cleared up I put the dishwasher on to drain the water inside the machine. Now the machine drains and the pump stays on, and the first light blinks after about 10 seconds. This just continues. I can't go back to washing dishes can some please help!!!!

Hi from italy, well it happened to me and i fixed it yesterday 14 june 2009. the washer pulls the water and then light 2 and 4 blink. check the heating element under the machine. if you ohm this it should show about 100 ohms or less. the maching dies a system check and if it diesn't see the element it goes into alarm. the element will cost about 28 euro. this element if good for the following machine on the box ariston,indesit,hotpoint,scholtes unplug the machine and take it somewhere to work on ,some water will spill out. you will have to replace the clamps once you pry it off. hope this helps ralph

Ndesit IDL 535 DW, not cycling, water coming from under unt.


The washer is fitted with an anti flood device that detects water leaks and closes water inlet valve and puts washer in pump out mode. The anti flood device is a polystireen float with micro switch at the bottom floor of the washer. Dry the water and find the leak (pipe or pipe clamp) and this should then solve the error.

The problem is lack of water. Check that the water is turned on at the stop **** and make sure that the hose hasn't been traped if the dishwasher has been pulled out from it resess as happened to mine.

Flashing green light on my indesit dishwasher


Put some towels dowm and tip the dishwasher over to one side about 45 degrees, if water pours out of the base it means that the dishwasher is in "flood mode" and you have a leak into the base that will need resolving.
Thanks
