Indesit IDL 530 Dishwasher Prewash and Drying Light flashing

Hi ya


My Indesit IDL 530 dishwash which is fairly new has packed up with the Prewash and Drying light flashing simultaneously. I know it's under warranty but I'm trying to find out what this error code means and whether there is anything I can do to avoid calling out an engineer. Regards Dan.

Ours was doing this and it was because there was water leaking into the base because a crocodile clip had come off

Ndesit IDL 535 DW, not cycling, water coming from under unt.

The washer is fitted with an anti flood device that detects water leaks and closes water inlet valve and puts washer in pump out mode. The anti flood device is a polystireen float with micro switch at the bottom floor of the washer. Dry the water and find the leak (pipe or pipe clamp) and this should then solve the error.

Flashing green light on my indesit dishwasher

Put some towels dowm and tip the dishwasher over to one side about 45 degrees, if water pours out of the base it means that the dishwasher is in "flood mode" and you have a leak into the base that will need resolving.
