Try to tilt your dishwasher forwards. Be aware that water will leak out of the front. Once this is clear it should work. I paid an engineer to come and tell me this. If your machine is not completely level it causes it to over fill and after a time will not work. Good Luck

Depress start button till start light goes out. Close door, drain pump should run for a while. Wait for end of program, rer-try a new program start. This process is re-setting memory.If this fails to sort problem then start checking components, ie: fill valve water on? heaters open circuit/down to earth, drain pump, is it emptying, wash pump.
This problem is common to both the 300 & 310 models. The flashing Fast light indicates a blockage in the water supply. I fixed this by: - disconnecting the dishwasher - checking for blockages in the input hose filter (there were none) - removing the bottom of the dishwasher (two screws at the front) - looking for the translucent plastic bucket thing attached to the side of the main assembly - unclipping it from the main assembly and removing the white hose attached to it - flushing 5 years worth of evil gunk down the sink (you need a small brush or piece of wire to get it out
I had a hotpoint engineer try to fix this type of problem. He insisted that there was something stuck in the bottom of the filter or pump.
Sure enough there was. 1. Unplug your dishwaser at the wall. Check its off or disconnected. 2. Remove the grill under the bottom rack. 3. Ensure that the filter is free from food and other obstacles and clean the filter. 4. Before replacing filter etc, get a piece of metal coat hanger wire and care fully insert it down the channel under the filter to free any lodged items. You may also see a small white impleller try to turn this with your finger or the coat hanger wire (this is the info from the engineer!). 5. replace filter and retry a wash.
This routine fixed or machine twice and will hopefully fix yours!
Don't forget to rate me!
fyi The third time about 1 year later this occured again and even hotpoint gave up as they could not fix the machine. (after multiple visits). I think that the two flashing lights are were a red herring and the dishwasher had a separate intermittent fault. Hotpoint replaced the unit for a mimum charge. Callout + 40.
Tilt your washer forwards. Water will leak from the front but once this has cleared your dishwasher should be ok again. I paid an engineer to come and tell me this. If your dishwasher is not completely level this can sometimes happen. Hope this helps.
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.
