My Indesit D41 powers on OK, has got water etc...but has suddenly stopped working. When I choose cycles 1 or 2 the first light comes on and then nothing. When I reset it, it beeps 4 times. I am pretty sure that a reset used to only beep twice in the past.
Any help would be greatly appreciated! (Wife is going mad and I really don't want to spend a fortune on callouts)

Re: 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.

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.
1, Tilt machine and remove base plate 6 screws. 2, fixed to the inner ring at the bottom of the machine is the water level control. (brown, round with 3/4 wires attached. 3, remove it, lift and pull forward. 4, remove the attcahed clear plastic tube. 5, tip up and drain out any water in the unit, Should be none. 6, Blow throught the free hanging rubber tube, should be clear refit.
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.

indesit idl 40 not pumping water out properly, ends with flashing light no 4 and plates dry but water still in machine -have to pump out using start stop button but within 2 hours base filled up with water. Can't afford massive call out prices as lady on my own.....
you need to check the inlet walve . when you start the unit you say it drains. so after the drain do you hear the water entering the dishwasher? If you hear a sound like a buzzing noise that would be the inlet valve working. if thats the case there is a clog at the screen in the valve not allowing the water or enough water in the tub. seeing that this is a portable unit you will also want to check to make sure the fill hose is not kinked up anywhere in the cabinet or under neath the dishwasher. If you hear no buzzing noise you need to check the inlet valve with a meter to first make sure your getting power to it and that the valve itself if good. check these things out and let me know what you found and we can go from there
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.
