    Hi There,

    I have an Indesit DIF04 dishwasher with lights 1 & 3 flashing. I’ve had a look into your error code section but this one is not noted. Could you let me know what this is relating to?

    Many thanks for your help.

    Hi,

    I have an indesit DIF04B1 which has no power. There are no error codes flashing, no lights or beeps when pressing the button which you press and hold to turn on. The fuse in the plug is good and the mains socket supplying the dishwasher is also good.

    Are there any main fuses inside?

    I have just ordered a Air break and turbine assembly from your ebay store. I have a indesit DIF 16 and have intermittent fill fail with Leds 1 and 3 flashing. I have checked the mains flow and it is good. The existing part is discoloured around the top right corner. Where the half circle path for the water is. The Impaler seem to spin and sometimes the dishwasher works ok sometimes it fails straight away and sometimes it fails on the rinse cycle. How do i get the old air break and turbine assembly off. is it a threaded ring on the inside of the dishwasher that needs to be undone.
    Thanks Rob W
