    Hi

    I have a problem with a Indesit DIS16 where the bump is not spaying water. The drain pump and heating element are working. There is no alarm nor error code.

    I opened the machine, checked hoses, put the machine on its back and checked the impeller (moved it manually) in the main pump. There was nothing.

    Thus, there were not things jammed inside apparently.

    Put all together and the machine stated to work again.

    What do you think it is the problem? if it happens again, what’s the culprit?

    Thanks

    Chris

    Hi there, My Indesit IDL 75 Stopped working – The on/off Button light when pushed comes on but as soon as I take my finger off it doesn’t remain on. Only if while pressing the on/off I press the Reset after a few seconds I might hear water enter and it will pump water out etc.
    I do get an error code 2 – Which I’ve checked. which says it could be the solenoid ( It’s a double solenoid) I have checked it with mains and it seems to be working – but maybe there could be a check-back that holds the other solenoid’s in?? – I’ve also checked the jug assembly and it all looks good, – Wondering if you might have any idea what could be the problem ( This machine although oldish 2007?) is in immaculate condition – underneath all looks good!
    I would appreciate of your opinion?

    Hi there I have an Indesit Idl 530 dishwasher with a F10 error code (lights 2&4 flashing) according to a lot of sources it’s related to heating element, today I replaced the heating element with another genuine element and I even replaced the thermostat st the same time with a genuine one again (whilst the bottom was open and could also of been a process of elimination I thought I’d also change that!)
    Machine still throws up error 10 at same point when the spray arm rotates and signals the element to heat, any ideas anybody? No other faults at all, just that!
    Thanks in advance

    Hi

    We have an Indesit dishwasher DIF 04b1. The board lights up then turns itself off and turns itself on again and keeps doing this. If we put the door shut it sometimes comes on and lasts for about 5 minutes and then turns itself off again. Then it just keeps beeping on and off. it never settles on any fault light sequence. Is this an easy fault to correct or not?

    Thanks
