YES IT SOUNDS LIKE IT'S THE ELEMENT OR MAYBE A WIRE HAS COME OFF THE ELEMENT FROM VIBRATION,

    there are several wires under the unit, you would need a flash light take off the bottom cover, the element is the round little tube inside the dish washer under the bottom tray you may wish to have a tech come out, to do a full check up

My Indesit IDL40 dishwasher, loud bang with slight burning smell but still working?


Any burning smell is not good. Indicates that something in there is too hot and perhaps melting something. Could even catch fire......

Could very well be that whatever is responsible for the noise can be causing the problemo.

If you're sure you're using enough soap, check that your hot water is connected and that you're using a hot-water wash (some dishwashers have a cold-water option, this will often give unsatisfactory results if washing greasy dishes - especially beef fat).

My indesit idl40 cleans everything, but leaves a film? does not seem to rinse?


Hi, what you are currently experiencing is as a result of dishwasher detergent, combined with mineral deposits from hard water, which in yurn can leave a white film on the inside of the dishwasher.
You have to clean the dishwasher by sprinkling baking soda onto a damp cloth. Scrub the inside of the dishwasher to remove soap scum, grime and mineral deposits.
Pour 2 cups white vinegar into the bottom of your dishwasher. Turn the dishwasher on and run it on a full cycle. Stop the dishwasher halfway through the wash cycle and allow the vinegar and steam to work on the remaining mineral deposits for 20 minutes before resuming the cycle.
Open the dishwasher and dry the interior with clean, dry cloths. Keep the door propped open for 20 to 30 minutes to allow the dishwasher to dry completely.

Dishwasher not drying dished with any heat source. Dishes washed in cold water.


Most dishwashers are plumbed to the hot side of the hot water side of the faucet. This should provide hot water for washing the dishes. Perhaps this dishwasher was plumbed to the cold water side by mistake.

Most dishwashers have a heating coil most of the way around under the bottom sliding/rolling dish rack. The heating coil may not be working, which would be consistent with the dishes not drying at the end of the cycle. Possible causes include incorrect setting selected on control console (push buttons) or timer, heating coil disconnected from electrical source at one end or both ends, faulty control circuit inside the timer, faulty wiring between the timer/control circuit and the heating coil, burned or pitted contacts in the control circuit.

Indesit DG6100W problem...please help!


Hi, I have the same dishwasher and it fills from the cold supply, not the hot and it doesn't have a cold cycle as is previously suggested, as you will know kellyemb :-)

The Indesit DG6100W does a fill from the cold and heats as it washes, so if it's sticking part way through, it could be the heating element. Have you tried opening the door when it sticks and seeing if the water is hot? The heating element went on ours and it kept tripping the electric whenever the it tried to start to heat the cold water. If it is the element, they don't cost much to replace, even cheaper if you know someone who can fit it for you! Ours cost us around £12 and hubby fitted.

The only other thing I can think of is it might be the timer, like someone has suggested but how to reset it, I have no idea. I have seen on another website that a replacement timer is around £55 plus VAT, which is a little expensive.

Hope you get it fixed.

Water not hot


Dishwashers are suppose to be hooked up to hot water. If you had hotter water it would clean just fine. 120 deg or more!

Washing tablet not desolving, dishes still dirty, have opened machine when been on 5 ninutes and only cold water pouring in, what is the problem please?


test your hot water over your sink and see how long it takes to get hot. if it takes 30 to 40 seconds just run your hot water until it gets hot then run dishwasher. or if water not hot enough yo can turn up your water heater temp. also check your heat element
