Re: IDL705 dishwasher showing error code

Indesit IDL700 first two green lights flashing and cycle stops with dirty water left in the machine. CAUSE - blocked or jammed drain pump. SOLUTION - First remove all the filters inside the machine, syphon or sponge up all the water in the sump and check for any obstruction over the fine grill at the very bottom. (we had a pistachio shell covering the hole!). If this doesn't cue it you will need to gain access to the pump. First, turn off the power. Gently lift the machine onto it's side (be ready for some water to spill out!). Remove the bottom plate (6 screws) and disconnect the sump float switch. Remove the single screw retaining the pump to the bottom of the machine and rotate to remove. You should be able to see the rotor blades. With your finger check to see if the pump rotates freely. To dismantle the pump, remove the 3 screws and separate the two halves. Our pump was jammed with an apple stalk!. Reassemble and connect any cables. Apparently this is a known problem with these machines and can be prevented by assembling the filter system correctly and pre-rinsing plates etc. before placing in the dishwasher.

Re: IDL705 dishwasher showing error code

Hi there, HANDWASHER here again. I sorted this problem, (1st green light flashing), that meant the float cut off switch which is right at the bottom of the machine, was being activated by a water leak filling up the bottom tray where the float switch lives. Hence the water inlet valve was closed to prevent any more flooding, and green light No 1 shows NO WATER ENTERING MACHINE. The leak was due to a burst in the short black rubber hose between the main pump and the water trap under the main filter and drain assembly. £6 for a new hose cured the whole sorry mess. This fault is not mentioned in the instruction book ! To get at the relevant bits turn machine on its side and remove the bottom tray(6 screws, 3 each side.) Good luck, Indesitters.

Re: IDL705 dishwasher showing error code

Flashing lights indicate there is a fault, does the dishwasher do anything before the lights flash, you have not given me a lot of info, if nothing happens it could indicate a door catch, or waiting for water, any noises or what it does if anything would help diagnose the fault more accurately

My kitchenaid dishwasher kude40fxss4 stops after few minutes into any cycle then the front blue light starts flashing. If I press start again it will start but it'll stop with the blue light flashing

Hello. I've attached images that show the error code chart for your series unit--look at the lights blinking, which ones and how many times they blink.Read the 1st instructions carefully to put the washer into diagnostic mode. You will have to go through the charts to find out what specific code you're getting and what it means. I hope this documentation helps you!

I am getting flashing lights on my dishwasher on/off light, 2nd and 4th light. Can someone help me interpret the error code and also suggest a solution please?

Hi, I had same problem with my Samsung dishwasher. Myine would start flashing about 45 seconds after the cycle started. Check under the sink for flexible hose that runs from the bottom of the dishwasher to the sink drain (mine actually runs into the disposal). Be sure there are no severe " kinks" or bends in the hose or anything that might impede the water flow. I straightened my hose as much as possible and "jiggled" it a bit and it began working ok. I haad the same problem again a few months later and jiggled/shook again and works ok since. There could be a partial blockage from food debris, etc. in the hose. Good luck.

It sounds like you just need to reset the controller. This is done by running (or partially running) a diagnostic cycle, which will clear the error. Here's how to do it: Depending on the model, and the keys you have, press the following sequence of keys quickly (with less that 1 second between key presses:
Heated Dry - Normal - Heated Dry - Normal; or
High Temp - Air Dry - High Temp - Air Dry; or
Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry, Hi Temp Scrub, Energy Saver Dry; or
High Temp Wash, Heated Dry, High Temp Wash, Heated Dry.
You will know that you have entered the diagnostic cycle when all the lights light up. Let it run for a few minutes, and then press Cancel to stop the diagnostic cycle and clear the error.

Note: On some of the newer Whirlpool, Kenmore, KitchenAid dishwashers, you start the diagnostic cycle by rapidly pressing the 3 left-most keys in the following sequence: 1 2 3, 1 2 3, 1 2 3.
