My Indesit dif16 will not drain. The 'intensive' and the 'normal' wash cycle lights are flashing. done the usual checks of pips, water, etc and switched of for 5 minutes etc. Thank you if anyone can help.

    Exactly the same problem here, there's about 3 inches of water in bottom that will not drain.

    I've checked the filters and the drain hose and its clear all the way through. I guess the pump must have gone or something?

as you have checked that all the filters are clean this could mean you could have a problem with your pressure switch. This is a small round device that tells the washer that there is enough water in it . The pressure switch is located under the washer and is eay to fit . Once you have taken off the base of the dishwasher you will see a small round thing attached to the side of the washer base . It has a block connector and a small tube connected to it just remove these two and replace the switch and re plug it in

Dishwashers normally are hot or cold feed.
My wife runs water at the sink to get it hot going in before turning on the dishwasher.
You can use either cold or hot water.
We have ours hooked up to the hot water side.
They work better hooked up to the hot water.

Your problem is very clear, you need to replace the wash tank heating element.

SOURCE: I have a indesit DIF16

Fitting the spring is quite tricky you will need 2 people, one to support the door as the other fits the spring.
You may find that the original spring can still be used by reshaping the end which is where they usually snap, the downside being that the door is not properly balanced and may tend to spring shut slightly. With mine I over stretched it and lived with it (so I lower the door gently and dont let go!) as it was 6 years old when it went. It's still going after 10 years.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

Modifying a wash cycle in progress:

If a mistake was made during the wash cycle selection process it is possible to change the cycle, provided that it has only just begun: open the door, taking care to avoid the escaping steam, and press and hold the ON/OFF button; the machine will switch off with a long beep. Switch the machine back on using the ON/OFF button and select the new wash cycle using the SELECT WASH CYCLE button; start the cycle by closing the door.

Brand new Indesit IDS105 Dishwasher will only complete pre wash cycle, on any setting.


Purchased a second hand Indesit slimline IDS105, to find it would only complete the first wash cycle, at the end of this cycle the LED Would just flash, with the waste pump coming on every 2 mins to empty it. Even after 4 hours it still didn't complete a full cycle.

I looked through the manual only to find that the error code was not explained. I phoned Indesit, after talking to 12 different people, the only thing the useless company wanted to know was whether i had warranty or whether i wanted extended warranty, then after establishing i didn't, they just biffed me on to the next, when i actually got through to a loosely knowledgable person they said they would send out an engineer for you as we are not allowed to tell you what the error code means, I just put the phone down.

So... to the solution, after dismantling the dishwasher i tested every single component, with a multimeter. Through elimination and research i had a hunch it maybe to do with the heating element or NTC Temp sensor. Tested the NTC, perfect. Tested the resistance of the heater this read 0.34ohm near enough should be around 0.29. So i took the mainboard out and tested the relay and this is where my trouble and solution arose. To test the relay i got a 12v battery and the datasheet for the relay, tested the contacts, to here a nice click....Then pop!!! NOOOO i blew the IC that controlled the Relay (ULN2003A Darlington transistor array). I ordered one of ebay (but RS,Farnell sell them for a cheaper price) Unsoldered the blown IC, soldered the new one on.

Put the Dishwasher back together, crossed my fingers, turned it on, and selected programme 2 (Normal wash) and pressed start. 1 hour and 50mins of intense tension later it had completed the whole cycle!!!!!!!! Ive never been so happy!!!

Cheers
Up yours Indesit!

Indesit DI620 but won't drain the water after a wash


are you finding water in the filter or is the appliance filled with water,if it is only in the filter at the end of the cycle,this is normal as it is used to condensed the steam after the 80o final rinse which drys the cutlery.if ithe appliance is filled then check the drain hose not partily blocked with grease or partly blocked at the sink if plumbed to there
