The user guide says this combination of lights means the filter is clogged - see page 9 of the guide.

@brianathome2

there is a pressure switch that triggers when the bottom has a certain amount of water in the filter. its most likely that the pipe to that has some rotton food stuck in it. the switch is usually on the right hand as you look at the machine and is a red round shape. one small rubber pipe connected. if you take the hose off and blow through it you'll hear it pop. it will then work but you have to get your fingers in the holes at the bottom of the sump to clean it. yuk!!

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.

Hi, our Indesit IDL500 dishwasher has stopped working. The fault light 2 is flashing. The manual doesn't mention what fault this indicates. Any ideas. Cheers, Neil


Hi Niel, If you were to start the cycle from the beginning, where in the cycle does this occur? . So many code numbers for so many units, hard to keep up .Just note if heating is taking place and if drainage is correct. Hear from you soon.

Green light flashing


hello to all
i am in naples italy and just fixed my machine.
idl 600 second and forth light blinking after fill up and then it drains the water out.
this is a clogged filter alarm but if the filter is not clogged its the heating element bad.
the element has a thermostat that heats the water to about 90 degrees c.
in my case the element was burned open and checking this with a ohm meter it showed no resistance.
normally it should be about 100 ohms.
the mother board were the lights are does a check on all systems and if anything fails in this case the heater element then it goes into alarm and pumps out the water.
total cost here near naples italy was 28 euro for the heating element and i replaced it my self.
feel free to e-mail me if this is allowed at ralphcarlmagno@yahoo.com
hope this helps a lot of friends
