Will not start cycles

Hi 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) Kind regards Bruce

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.

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 D41 dishwasher problem

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

Dishwasher not resetting before new cycle

I have had the same problem. The issue is with the dip tray + overflow detector under the machine. What happened is the dip tray is full of water and the overflow detects this condition and prevents the machine from starting.
It looks like there is no water present in the machine but the drip tray, located underneath, is full. Give the machine a good shake and you should see water.
I solved it easily: just get a mop, lift the machine's front so that it tilts backwards and collect the water as it escapes the drip tray towards the back of the machine. The tray can collect quite a bit of water so you're likely to need a few tilts until it's empty.
In my case, the underlying case had been a previous mistake - we didn't allow the machine to finish completely and water had remained on it. Somehow the water had found its way to the tray. Other causes my be another appliance sharing the same waste pipe and pushing water down the dishwasher's waste system.
