Pull the machine out and tip it carefully to one side, if water comes out from the base then the problem is the union on the upper feed pipe. Remove the top inner dish rack and twist the star shaped nut clockwise gently! Make sure you have got as much of the water out as possible, stand the unit back up and turn put it into cycle.

I used the solution above and my dishwasher now working!!! I would add, plenty of towels and a tray or three to catch the stinking water that comes out of the outfow when you tip it up. Yes 6 screws to remove the back, but on the Indesit IDL40 two additional longer screws in the centre are helpful to remove. Then just tuck the bit that was attached out of the way. My pump was cream and white - check out pumps online to see what they look like. Undo the one screw holding the pump in place and then you have to twist it to release three little pegs. I washed outs loads of small bits of grit. Then easy to put back together. Re-attach the drain pipe to your drain, electric plug at wall and water inflow pipe. (Check for leaks!) I am so happy! Took me two hours but I had to hunt for the info and find the hidden screwdrivers. Husband will be pleased I think.
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.
indesit idl 40 not pumping water out properly, ends with flashing light no 4 and plates dry but water still in machine -have to pump out using start stop button but within 2 hours base filled up with water. Can't afford massive call out prices as lady on my own.....
