    Hi,
    I have an Indesit DFP573 EU, showing the error code A3. Somehow I cannot find the description for this code.
    There is water at the bottom of the dishwasher, suggesting a pump error. However, this could be because the system shut down before pumping began.

    I would appreciate some help!

    Thank you,
    JP

    Hi,
    I have this fault ‘Main board & Display communication error’ on my old indesit..it’s not a very good machine and i’m thinking it’s probably worth just replacing it, unless resolving the above is fairly simple ?

    Regards…chris

      Hi
      Unsure if you got this fixed, have had the same problem. Filter or hose blockage normally from grease. Try Soda Crystals, empty machine remove all the filters and check nothing is blocked, add soda crystals and boiling water, leave for 5 mins and use a plunger on the area where the filters are normally placed, leave for a further10 mins and then plunge again. Turn the machine onto a wash cycle, if the error code comes up again, repeat process. Use as much soda crystals as you like ( does not harm ) make sure water is hot. Once the machine goes onto a wash cycle let it finish, depending on how you have previously cleaned the machine? not a bad idea to run a second wash with crystals. It works, my dishwasher is proof of this.

    Hi

    We have an Indesit DFG15B1 just over two years old. For about a month it has not been completing a full cycle (think it’s error F10 led off/on/off/on – led 4 being by start/pause button). After washing it stops, F10 lights flashing and is emptying constantly with the rinse aid light flashing when we open the door. Both salt/rinse aid is sufficiently full. Please can you help?

    Many thanks.

    Hi, there is “10” flashing on the screen of my MVFTA+5H Ariston. I’ve heard two reasons for that: heating element and some generic “wiring fault”. Which one is true?
    Many thanks in advance. Alex
