On starting My Indesit D43 Dishwasher , set to programme 7, I found that the machine cause my kitchen to flood with cold water. The water was coming from the bottom of the door to the machine. ( I Think) An error code of A01 was eventually displayed but only after I had switched the machine off then on again to drain. This error code persists. I would appreciate some guidance on finding and curing the fault.

You have a component down to earth. The problem isn't the start button. Most likely to be the element, but ciuld be wash or drain pump. Check the element with a resistance meter first, when you find the componant at fault, replace it
It is a problem with the unit not able to drain correctly.
Have you checked there is no blockage in the drain hose on the kitchen end. For example if you have a garbage disposal in kitchen sink the make sure it is run before the dishwasher starts.
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.
No solution! tried resetting to factory defaults but ended up that even the drain pump stopped working. after flooding the kitchen (nearly). I decided it was terminal and am loking for a new dishwasher urgently as I type. Cheers.
Your debris filter needs to be cleaned. It is found under the dry bar in the bottom of the tub. It looks like a plastic mesh and you can usually remove it to wash it out if not use an old toothbrush etc... this should help.
It sounds like the anti flood switch is activated, lean the dishwasher back at a 45 degree angle. If water comes out the back you have a leak. Stand it up and try it try dishwasher, if it works this comfirms leak, you will need to find where it is coming from.
sounds like your machine is not taking in any water at all, which is the first thing the dishwasher wants to do on all programme settings.The constant whirring noise you refer to will be the water valve trying to take water into your machine.As yours isn't filling in the first place the programme cannot progress without water and it will just sit there whirring.Anyway, to resolve this matter I would check the fill hose which goes from the back of machine to your cold water pipe in your kitchen/utility, in case somebody has turned off supply.where the flexi hose meets the copper supply pipe there should be a thumbturn shut/open valve, turn this 90 degrees or a quarter turn and if you here a rush of water for a split second then you have fixed it.At this point try setting away a programme to see if water is going into dishwasher. If not have a bucket ready and unscrew the flexi hose altogether to make sure water is travelling past shut/open valve.If not you need a new shut/open valve.If water is able to pass this valve reconnect to dishwasher turn shut/open valve a quarter turn to open flow of water again,test machine on any programme again ,if it fills then your sorted, if not it must be your dishwashers internal water valve that will need replacing.Not a major job (located behind fill hose) but make sure electric and water supplies are off first before dabbling and write down your machines make and model number before shopping for part. GOOD LUCK.
I have had the same problem. The issue is with the dip tray + overflow detector under the machine. What happened is the dip tray is full of water and the overflow detects this condition and prevents the machine from starting. It looks like there is no water present in the machine but the drip tray, located underneath, is full. Give the machine a good shake and you should see water. I solved it easily: just get a mop, lift the machine's front so that it tilts backwards and collect the water as it escapes the drip tray towards the back of the machine. The tray can collect quite a bit of water so you're likely to need a few tilts until it's empty. In my case, the underlying case had been a previous mistake - we didn't allow the machine to finish completely and water had remained on it. Somehow the water had found its way to the tray. Other causes my be another appliance sharing the same waste pipe and pushing water down the dishwasher's waste system.
