How do I Fix upper spray arm to Indesit IDF 125 UK

It depends a lot on what is wrong with it. You can get special glues that fuse plastic if it is broken.

If you need to replace it, appliance spare parts are available online.

If it is intact but still non-functional, try taking it apart to see if something is causing it to bind.

Past this, your complaint should direct the course of your remedial action. You did not say what was wrong initially.

Good Luck,

Why on my indesit dishwasher, the salt container is full and not dissolving?

The dispenser could be defective and not releasing its contents at the proper cycle time but the problem also could be due to a defect in the timer.

I have idf 125 indesit dishwasher i fitted a new water solioned but it will bring in water but pumps it back out and lights flash what is the problem

These machines use the wash motor to measure the water level.they measure the load on the motor which tells it when the water has reached the correct level.
Your dishwasher is sensing that there is too much water, they are a semi timed fill. try turning the inlet tap down a little and see if that helps.
If not the issue is either in your electronics or in the motor, The electronics sometimes get dry joints and if you have a soldering iron they are an easy fix.

Dishwasher is showing low dishwasher salt soon after putting dishwasher salt. why?

Do not bother. Continue using the m/c. If the inlet water quality is good do not worry. This is a sensor sensing fault, even if the salt is fully loaded.

If the wash quality is good without salt continue.

Otherwise add salt at regular intervals. Trying to fix this fault will lead to another and so on. Now machine works for you continue enjoying!

that comes across a little scrambled to me.
seems like you have a 'salt reservoir' of some sort. am not familiar with that.
perhaps you could take a little more time and break the problem down to smaller parts, making sure it is understandable. i will try hard to help you, but i can not understand your issue at this point.
please try to take it through the steps of what happens, and what should be happening. as well as a little info on age of the unit and the maker.
let me know more.

Salt Indicator Light Flashes Permanently On Indesit IDE 750 dishwasher

I think I have the answer.

On Yahoo Answers Blue Rizla Girl put up the idea that the sensor is some form of hydrometer. (i.e. floats in salty water sinks if not salty enough)

Based on this thought I postulated that the sensor is some form of hydrometer float in a tube with perhaps an optical sensor.

If this is correct why is it not working?

Is it because the float is stuck at the bottom of the tube, perhaps by some food debris? If so how can we fix it?

This is what I did on my Hotpoint FWD60:-

I took the salt filler cap off. There was no salt in the reservoir as it has been a problem for months, and I was only refilling it when dishes were not coming clean.

I poured 2 litres of hot water into the salt reservoir.

I then put the empty machine on the intensive 65 degree wash, half load and with the reservoir cap still OFF.

When finished I filled up with salt and HEY PRESTO the salt light is OFF!!!!

Just hope it stays that way until the reservoir really needs refilling.

While I was down on my hands and knees I took the opportunity to clean the filters in the sump. They do get full of bits!

I also flushed the sump by dashing a couple of cups of hot water into it and then bailing it out with a small yoghurt pot. I repeated this until the water in the yoghurt pot and the sump no longer had any signs of bits in them. (Dashing = vigorously pour)

I was amazed at how many bits I got out, especially considering I had given the machine a good clean in the past 6 weeks.

I even got part of a paper label!

So there we have it, try it out and report back.

Dishwasher salt

Cooking salt contains ingredients that could damage your dishwasher. It could increase water hardness and they are likely to clog when wet. Suck out as much water as you can from the salt cup,enter there dishwasher salt and run your washer few empty cycles on the lowest temperature. Good luck
