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.

Try selecting a cycle that doesn't heat the water. (quick, delicate, china etc.) Don't use a sanitize, hot wash, hot rinse or heated dry option either. When a dishwasher trys to heat the water it pauses the timer until the sensor is satisfied. It continues to wash/heat. Another possible problem , Run the water at the sink until it is hot before you start the machine. A dishwasher isn't capable of heating cold water. It is just designed to boost the temp of hot water. If it completes the cycle this way, the sensor is bad not the timer.

Loud Buzzing noise


Sounds like something may have got past your filter and is touching the main pump impeller eg piece of broken glass or piece of plastic.I,ve even seen a spoon touching the impeller. You may have to take the bottom off the machine and remove the pump if you can,t see anything under the filter,Hope this helps. Regards Stefan.

Indesit DG6100W dishwasher will not work


It sounds as though the micro-switch inside the lock mechanism is displaced.

Undo the 6 screws at the top of the door (on the inside) and remove the outer pane. This will give you access to the lock mechanism. Please switch it off first.

The micro-switch can then be adjusted so that when the handle is released, the switch engages (you should hear a very soft click).

Hope this helps.

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.

you may be in "flood mode". there may be a leak into the base. or your bottom base hoses may be blocked, best get someone in who is able to strip a d/w base out.
