Most probable cause is that your float valve is jammed.
The valve is a safety feature to stop the machine from over filling. If anything gets under the valve it will jam open and stop the machine.

Look inside the machine on the floor will be a small float valve. On newer models it will be located in or near the drain. There will be tube about 2 inches (5cm) and about an inch in diameter with holes in the top. Inside this is the float valve. On older units is looks like a small upside down cup. Lift it and clear anything from underneath. Make sure it can lift and drop freely.


Not working?

Check for a clog internal or external.

Scoop as much water our as you can. Open the cover on the floor of the machine. Usually just turns and lifts out or snaps out some are screwed in. Take your time and try not to force anything. Look for a clog there.

Check for clog in the drain. The dishwasher will connect to the drain under your sink and run either directly to the drain or into your disposal unit. Remove open the connections and look for a clog. Clear if necessary.

Not the clog?

Water is pumped out by the machine via an internal pump located under the base. If it fails the water will collect until it trips the float valve. First scoop out all the water from the machine and run it again. If water comes in and it runs to the point it fills again and trips the float then either the pump or timer is faulty.

Pump check.

Remove the machine. It will be held in place by screws directly into the counter top. You may have to lower it to get it out. The front feet turn with a wrench to lower.

Turn off the water supply. Run the unit again until you get to the drain cycle.

Connect a test light or voltage tester to the terminals at the pump. Check for voltage at the pump. If you have voltage replace the pump. If no voltage the timer is faulty.

Timer problem?
Some can be replaced as a unit others are integral to the control panel. Turn style can be replaced. Touch control can not.

I have an Indesit Dishwasher model the programmer sticks


One of the main reasons for the timer sticking, is the heating element is not comming on. Check if it is faulty or if the over temp. th/stat has activated.(Basically,check if water does heat at any time.. if not, there is the problem).

Shortly after turning my indesit idl530 on a fault code appears


the problem you are getting is a f01 fault,this is water in the base part of the antiflood devise.to check this if you tip the appliance backwards and water comes from the back at the bottom this is the problem,if you do this till it stops and then leave for approx 24hrs to dry out any water that may have gone on to motor,then check by switching on to start a program,if appears to work ok but then goes back to the same fault(draining all the time and light flashing)you will have to remove base and check for leaks.

Sounds like it has overflowed at some stage. Ensure the filter is cleared and then rock the dishwasher backwards. Any trapped water will drain out and the safety valve will reset. i had similar and this was what the indesit technician did.
