IDL 700 Dishwasher

My dishwasher starts with the 1st light on.After a while it stops with the 1st and 2nd lights flashing. If I manualy empty the water out and blow down the outlet pipe to make sure its not blocked it will start again.Can it be anything other than the pump? How can I check the pump?

Thanks in Advance....Regards Steve

It sounds like you are going into flood mode. tip the unit 45 degrees to the side and see if you are getting loads of water pouring out. if so you have a leak and need to check components in the base.

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.
