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

Indesit IWC6105 Keeps filling with water and lights flashing

Almost certain to be a power pcb failure due to the fact it fills and drains at the same time this is a regular fault symptom on indesit laundry appliances. Word of caution tho inde pcb's are generic to a range and the software must be programmed via a lap top to your specific appliance so you can't just order a pcb and pop it in sorry

HiTo all iv been having problems with my dishwasher its a indesit aaa class idf 125 it keeps turning its self off then there is no power at all iv now had it off fr 3jd mounths and now its working again...

Could be anything but check your water heater element first - prime cause of power tripping. Also check for leaks from the sump into the wash motor / electrics etc Usually manifests as fills, runs for a bit then cuts out as leak starts. Be very careful with electrical safety on this one - water and electricity are a deadly combination. ensure the power if off, and machine unplugged before examining. test for safety after the repair.

My dishwasher seems to start ok then the first light starts flashing and it do'es nothing just stays there any ideads what my problem is

Can you tell if it's filling with water. The first thing it does is fill with water (usually on a timed cycle) before the pump starts. If there's no water in the tub, it obviously won't wash dishes, since a dishwasher is nothing more than an enclosed pressure washer. If it does not fill with water, you may have a bad fill valve or the timer that turns the fill valve on may be defective. You DO have the water turned on, RIGHT?
