Question about Indesit 24 in. IDL500 Built-In Dishwasher
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.

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.
