Question about Indesit 24 in. IDL700 Built-In Dishwasher
My dishwasher switches on but when trying to start a wsh cycle the 1st and 2nd wash cycle lights flash rapidly, any ideas???
Indesit IDL700 first two green lights flashing and cycle stops with dirty water left in the machine. CAUSE - blocked or jammed drain pump. SOLUTION - First remove all the filters inside the machine, syphon or sponge up all the water in the sump and check for any obstruction over the fine grill at the very bottom. (we had a pistachio shell covering the hole!). If this doesn't cue it you will need to gain access to the pump. First, turn off the power. Gently lift the machine onto it's side (be ready for some water to spill out!). Remove the bottom plate (6 screws) and disconnect the sump float switch. Remove the single screw retaining the pump to the bottom of the machine and rotate to remove. You should be able to see the rotor blades. With your finger check to see if the pump rotates freely. To dismantle the pump, remove the 3 screws and separate the two halves. Our pump was jammed with an apple stalk!. Reassemble and connect any cables. Apparently this is a known problem with these machines and can be prevented by assembling the filter system correctly and pre-rinsing plates etc. before placing in the dishwasher.

Hi there, HANDWASHER here again. I sorted this problem, (1st green light flashing), that meant the float cut off switch which is right at the bottom of the machine, was being activated by a water leak filling up the bottom tray where the float switch lives. Hence the water inlet valve was closed to prevent any more flooding, and green light No 1 shows NO WATER ENTERING MACHINE. The leak was due to a burst in the short black rubber hose between the main pump and the water trap under the main filter and drain assembly. £6 for a new hose cured the whole sorry mess. This fault is not mentioned in the instruction book ! To get at the relevant bits turn machine on its side and remove the bottom tray(6 screws, 3 each side.) Good luck, Indesitters.

Flashing lights indicate there is a fault, does the dishwasher do anything before the lights flash, you have not given me a lot of info, if nothing happens it could indicate a door catch, or waiting for water, any noises or what it does if anything would help diagnose the fault more accurately
