    My Indesit model D61 (14 years old) on normal wash sticks in the extended wash. If I turn the dial on 4 clicks it moves on to rinse but sticks again. If I then turn the dial on 2 clicks it then completes the programme.

    Indesit dishwasher D41

    The first light is flashing green and the others are off. I’ve checked for leakes. Any suggestions. Thank you

    Can you help please? We have a 19 month old Indesit DIF16B1 dishwasher which beeps a lot. If I turn it off at the appliance, it will often turn itself back on showing lights. The lights showing are; on, rinse aid (red) and the first light for the eco wash. I have filled the rinse aid numerous times – sometimes light goes out, sometimes it doesn’t. When I put the dishwasher on, it often beeps and stops after a few minutes usually during the first rinsing cycle. What is wrong and do I need an engineer to fix it?

    My model is the integrated DIF 04B1 with the power button, programme button and then four LEDs in this order ECO and then three saucepans signifying which programme to use. My power button is flashing quickly and LEDs 2 and 4 are on. Would this be a heating element issue as stated above or done anyone have a different reason? Appreciated. Thanks.
