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.

My siemens dishwasher pump seems to running constantly and will not stop when the door as it usually does any ideas


This is an indication that the overfill float has been activated. The unit either has a clogged drain, or the fill valve is defective and letting too much water into the tub.

There is also a possibility of a leak underneath, perhap`s the wash motor or drain motor, but you`ll need to either have a look or call in a pro to check it over.

You can look with the aid of a flashlight by removing the access panel/kick plate at the very bottom. **If you are going to check on your own, shut the power off at the home service/breaker panel**

The kick plate will be fastened by 2 screws, one one each side to the left & right. Look for leaks around the drain pump, off to the left slightly from center, the wash pump, off to the right from center, and maybe the inlet/water fill valve, off to the left far from center.
(The wash pump`s have a known history of face seal wear and are prone to leak. Look for sign`s of water between where the motor and pump housing come together, i.e. water deposit/scale left behind).

The Bosch/Siemen D/W also have had issues with defective inlt/water valves failing, It`s a good idea to monitor the water level in the dishwasher throughout a cycle or when not in use to insure it isn`t filling when not energized or overfilling when in use to determine if this may be the cause.

Hope that helps, good luck.

Dishwasher fault codes

the heating element is probably bad.
i have a idl 600 here in naples italy and it would fill up and go into alarm light 2 and 4 and pump out the water.
heating element cost 28 euro and i changed it out.
had to change the clamps as well.
if you ohm the element it should show about 100 ohms.
if it is open its bad.
the mother board does some checks and if anything fails it alarms out and drains the water after a few minuts

Indesit IDL 50 Dishwasher

Had a similar problem (flashing lights 1 and 2). Drained the machine by diconnecting the outlet hose and using a shallow bowl on the floor. Removed and cleaned filters. Forced clean water through by using a garden hose pipe(you can only do this one way, you cannot force water down the outlet pipe). Removed and cleaned the pump (you have to do this from under the machine but easy enough). Finally ensuring the waste trap under the sink was clear. Bingo!! No parts, no expensive engineer.

you may be in "flood mode". there may be a leak into the base. or your bottom base hoses may be blocked, best get someone in who is able to strip a d/w base out.

Dishwasher problem

My dishwasher Indesit DI67S will not run on the number 1 cycle. It will fill and then when that programme finishes it jumps straight to the drying cycle missing all the rinses out etc. If on the number 2 programme it goes all the way through but then doesn't dry. I've also noticed that the water doesn't seem to be heating up much and certainly isn't drying. Is this the element or something else? Once its reached the drying cycle the light for this just flashes then I have a job to try and reset the machine. It can take endless attempts. Will switching the machine off at the mains solve anything or is it the element?
