Question about Indesit 24 in. IDL500 Built-In Dishwasher
I have an Indesit IDL530, which is a hand me down from a friend that has left the country. The machine is only 5 months old. We have had it for about a month now. We use it about once or twice a week, as we still hand wash. Anyway, the machine was put on this morning and when the machine finished it's cycle, I opened the door and it was still full of water. How do I drian the machine of it's water please. Is there a filter or something I can clean.
My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org
The drain pump maybe jammed - this happened to me; a small piece of chicken bone got past the filter.
I took the bottom panel off to access the pump, removed the debris, put it all together and it's worked fine since (over a year). It's a messy job, with all the water etc, but it's taught me to clean the filter regularly :-)
UNPLUG FROM THE MAINS AND WATER SUPPLIES BEFORE ATTEMPTING THIS. ELECTRICITY AND WATER DON'T MIX AND CAN KILL.
If in doubt put your hand deep in your pocket and call out a tech.

if you follow the drain pump there is a small drain motor.
if the impeller is blocked and will not turn the water will never drain.
there is a small rubber flap like a one way door if that is stuck it will keep the water from draining as well.
turn off the water,unplug the machine and take it to the garage to fix.
it will leak water until it drains and follow the drain pipe to the drain motor.
if the motor is burned open or clogged of if the flap is sealed the water will not drain.
ohm out the motor and see if the windings are not burned open as well.
