Switch off and unplug before doing anything. .
First three lights are flashing on top and it will not stop making stupid noises.
Remove plastic panels at front of machine under door, see if there is water inside.
If there is ... something is leaking. If it is a slow leak - solution is to dry up excess water in tray with paper towels or whatever comes to hand. You will need to find the leak somehow - salt container is usual suspect.
There is a microswitch attached to a float on the left hand side inside a white plastic cover. Water at the base of this activates the switch and disables machine. Mine has not leaked since trying this fix and machine is running well 2 months down the line. Better 10 minutes with paper towels than 2 hours of expensive plumbers.

The blinking overdrive button is telling u that a serious fault has occurred in the electronic controls or a mechanical fault such as excess slippage is occurring.

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.

disconnect from mains take off water pump from under the washer and bench test (apply 240v to the contacts). If the pump turns and is OK refit it. |The next thing to do is replace the control panel behind the front door. the part you need is TIMER BIT100.1 'S5' ROHS + N1045048 and can cost from £37 - £90 try amazon. fit and fix. |The control panel provides 240v to the pump, hence why you should replace it because yours isn't possibly?. do continuity checks on the cabling.
