Indesit dishwasher IDL530 does not heat water

I have an Indesit dishwasher IDL530 and it does not produce hot water, does the full cycle though. The element inside almost looks burnt in places so maybe a replacement is needed?. I need to know if the element is the probable cause and if it is an easy DIY fix. Thanks

SOURCE: Noisy dishwasher

SOME DETERGENT DISPENSERS ARE ACTIVATED BY A SOLENOID THAT IS ELECTRICALLY CHARGED. IT WOULD BE POSSIBLE THAT IS WHERE THE NOISE IS COMING FROM. IF YOU WANTED TO CHECK, REMOVE THE DOOR PANEL AND SEE IF THERE IS A ROUND ITEM AT THE DISPENSER ASSEMBLY WITH TWO WIRES ATTACHED TO IT. PUT THE DISHWASHER INTO A CYCLE AND WHEN THE NOISE APPEARS, GENTLY PRESS ON THE SOLENOID TO SEE IF THAT IS WHERE THE NOISE IS COMING FROM. REPLACE THE SOLENOID TO SOLVE THE ISSUE.

BE SURE ALL RETAINING SCREWS ARE TIGHT.

no, turn the on / off button off, then turn off the power for about 5 minutes and then it should work again. and at some point do contact someone to look at it.

SOURCE: Indesit IDL530 Dishwasher Leaking

I fixed it myself in the end, the drain hose had a split in it and needed replacing. The problem I had was getting to the drain hose, as it is attached internally to the pump in the bottom of the dishwasher.

Here`s how to get to it:

First, remove the two screws from the back of the dishwasher on the bottom plate, there should be one on the far left and one on the far right.
Put a towel on the floor to soak up any excess water and tip the machine onto its back, so the door is pointing upwards.
At the bottom of the dishwasher you will see two more screws holding the plate on.
Remove these and carefully detach the plate.
You will notice a microswitch on the inside of the plate that has an orange and white wire connected to it.
Make a note of which way round the wires go, as the connector can be put on either way. Remove the connector from the micro switch and then completely remove the plate.
You will see the drain hose attached to the pump with a brass butterfly clip. You will need pliers to open the clip and slide it off the hose where it connects to the pump.
Once you have done this, you need to remove the white plastic clip that goes round the drain hose at the point where it exits the washer.
This clip slides up and away from yourself ( when facing the dishwasher on its back ), then it splits open and comes off.
This should allow you to remove the drain pipe.
Once that is off , its a simple case of getting a replacement pipe and fitting it. ( Follow instructions in reverse )
A word of warning though - I hunted high and low for a replacement and ended up ordering the wrong one from Partmaster.
The pipe MUST have a 90 degree bend in one end, if you search partmaster for Indesit IDL500 drain hose you will see one for £7.99.
You must get this one, as I made the mistake of ordering what I thought was a cheaper alternative ( £4.99 ), The cheaper one also had the 90 degree bend, BUT the end was too small.
Compare the images of the two and you will see that the more expensive one has a larger end at the 90 degree section.

Hope this helps.

My indesit dishwasher is not drying when the cycle is finish


Possibly the drying /heater element is faulty. Check the machine isn't on a non drying cycle. Some machines will do the last rinse in hot water but leave the dishes to drip dry in the hot humid air after the rinse. If the dishes or water isn't hot during a rinse , I would say its the element.

Asko dishwasher d3530. The water in the dishwasher is not hot.


Generally speaking, dishwashers don't heat cold water on their own. Be sure the dishwasher is connected to a hot water supply and that hot water is available to the dishwasher at the START of the cycle.

Often it takes hot water several seconds for house plumbing to deliver hot water to an outlet. If the dishwasher is connected to the kitchen hot water supply, run the water in the sink until the water runs hot before you start the dishwasher.

Dishwashers often have heaters to heat the water even hotter than most home water heaters, but they are not intended to heat cool or cold water. You MUST furnish hot water to the dishwasher from the time the cycle is started.

I've seen houses that take so long for hot water to reach a faucet, the dishwasher is already full (of cold water) before the first drop of hot water reaches it.

Good luck. Hope this helps.

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.

Indesit DG6100W problem...please help!


Hi, I have the same dishwasher and it fills from the cold supply, not the hot and it doesn't have a cold cycle as is previously suggested, as you will know kellyemb :-)

The Indesit DG6100W does a fill from the cold and heats as it washes, so if it's sticking part way through, it could be the heating element. Have you tried opening the door when it sticks and seeing if the water is hot? The heating element went on ours and it kept tripping the electric whenever the it tried to start to heat the cold water. If it is the element, they don't cost much to replace, even cheaper if you know someone who can fit it for you! Ours cost us around £12 and hubby fitted.

The only other thing I can think of is it might be the timer, like someone has suggested but how to reset it, I have no idea. I have seen on another website that a replacement timer is around £55 plus VAT, which is a little expensive.

Hope you get it fixed.
