Question about Indesit 18 in. D41 Slim-Line Free-standing Dishwasher
My Indesit slimline dishwasher fills up with water, it then stops completely after a couple of minutes and both the wash and rinse lights flash repeatedly.......the water sits in the bottom and the pots are unwashed.
Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

SOURCE: Water filling does not stop
Water supply to the dishwasher is done through an electromagnet valve,loocated at the water pipe's enterance to the machine. A defect in the valve may mean that it's no longer able to shut off completely when the electricity has been turned off to it, and the valve may leak and drip water into the tub.You can easyly open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from the machine before doing it !!!!! and as well to close water main tap to the machine. In case cleaning doesn't help, you should replace the valve. Good luck !!

I had a similar problem every time i bailed the sump out by hand and turned the machine back on it would fill the sump or just shut off.
Having spent ages checking various site it boiled down to one of three things there is a thermostat switch underneath they are know to go on the indesits and cost next to nothing to replace
second cause and most probable is to take machine outside before you do this front cover below front door removes to give access to pump you ll know it the pump because it has a pipe rinning into it and one out on my indesit i turned it upside down and got really easy access to it comes of easily take it to pices bit by bit really easy probably need small allun key depends on model check put for foreign objects , spinx blackpool rock etec etc only kidding it might be a bit of plastic or something that stop the spindle turning freely inside the pump if you find anything clean put back and off you go if pump is knackered you can get them off the web for 4.95
last but not least is the problem that mine actually had in the end and the easiest to fix `water pressure` if there is insufficient water pressure the machine regognised this and activate a shut off valve the machine lights flash you can reset the programme but it still does nt work. take the water pipe off the back put it into a bucket and open the valve you ll now what good pressure looks like mine was poor when i took the adjacent kitchen unit out it transpired a shut off vavle had been placed on the pipework the vavle had never been opened fully by the plumber and was restricting the water supply . take your time dont rush and be methodical take advantage of a local parts supplier ash them what most repairers will do first. it can be very rewarding to find that a/ you can do it and b/youve saved 60 or 70 quid in the process.
ps never mess with the machine whilst connected to the mains or spiky hair might come free with the repair and do take the machine outside or you ll have water evrywhere trust me
