Question about Indesit Dishwashers

1 Answer

My Indesit IDS 105 slimline dishwasher won't finish its cycle, it stops a few minutes in.

When it stops, the "start/pause" button light and the "dryer" light are lit up, but the cycle isn't far enough along to have actually started drying. Water is definitely coming into the machine because when I open it (after it's stopped), my dishes are wet (but the machine isn't flooded either, there's no pool of water in the bottom.) I've read other questions online and it seems to be that I need to reset the console, which makes sense as the dishwasher stopped working last night when several appliances stopped working after a fuse went (all the other appliances are now fully working, only the dishwasher is malfunctioning). However, online advice for my model says that I need to press the "high temp wash" and "heated dry" buttons in quick succession in order to reset the console, but I don't have these buttons on my machine! Maybe because I have the slimline version? Can someone please help?

Try cutting the power to the dishwasher (remove the fuse) for about 30 seconds, then when you put the fuse back in, do it quickly and smoothly so you get a clean power-on without a lot of sparking. This may get the dishwasher controller to do a proper hard power-on reset.

If the problem persists, you may have a hardware failure in the controller. The first thing I'd look for is a failing electrolytic capacitor. Sometimes a power on-off cycle finishes them off. Fortunately, the parts are cheap and readily available from online suppliers such as Digi-Key or Mouser. Unfortunately, you have to have electronic component soldering skills to change them. Often, bad capacitors can be visually identified because the top of the capacitor is domed instead of flat, or for smaller units the aluminum casing is partly pushed off of the rubber or plastic base.

QuietGuard3: Clean light flashing 7 times? Press Heated Dry, press Normal Wash, then press Heated Dry again and press Normal Wash again (that's 4 button-presses) and that should fix it.

SOURCE: Clean light flashing 7 times. Can't start the machine

The cleam light blinking means that the unit was not able to reach a proper heated wash cycle. Either your heating element failed orthe actual sump/pump motor system has failed. Check the element in the botton and see if it looks broken anywhere. If you can see a broken spot, you will k now that is the trouble.

Good Luck!

Sounds like a keypad malfunction or the control board has gone bad.

SOURCE: Loud Buzzing Sound from Dishwasher

have you ever seen green led "Clean" light flashing? before or about the same time the buzzing sound started? and if so that would indicate that the control senses a fault in the temperature rise during the heating cycle and that the electronic control could be reset by initiating a service diagnostic cycle.(which is what you were trying to do) pls reread your manual there are times during that sequence that some buttons have to be pushed at the same time and within a certain amount of time..possible that your machine also has a bad timer which would give you a buzzing noise..if thats the case I would recommend replacing the cpu or control board..or the machin all together..The Kenmore Ultra Wash Quiet Guard name is sears but whirpool has the contract to produce all "kenmore products.hope that helps.

My top dishwasher drawer won't finish through the cycle. It runs fine on rinse only but not any of the wash cycles. It stops mid cycles, beeps like it has been paused, then tries to start again


Try to feel the temperature of water inside the dishwasher. If it is normal room temperature for the hot wash cycles then it is likely the heater is faulty.
It is not easy to replace unless you have good experience with repairing dishwashers.

Brand new Indesit IDS105 Dishwasher will only complete pre wash cycle, on any setting.


Purchased a second hand Indesit slimline IDS105, to find it would only complete the first wash cycle, at the end of this cycle the LED Would just flash, with the waste pump coming on every 2 mins to empty it. Even after 4 hours it still didn't complete a full cycle.

I looked through the manual only to find that the error code was not explained. I phoned Indesit, after talking to 12 different people, the only thing the useless company wanted to know was whether i had warranty or whether i wanted extended warranty, then after establishing i didn't, they just biffed me on to the next, when i actually got through to a loosely knowledgable person they said they would send out an engineer for you as we are not allowed to tell you what the error code means, I just put the phone down.

So... to the solution, after dismantling the dishwasher i tested every single component, with a multimeter. Through elimination and research i had a hunch it maybe to do with the heating element or NTC Temp sensor. Tested the NTC, perfect. Tested the resistance of the heater this read 0.34ohm near enough should be around 0.29. So i took the mainboard out and tested the relay and this is where my trouble and solution arose. To test the relay i got a 12v battery and the datasheet for the relay, tested the contacts, to here a nice click....Then pop!!! NOOOO i blew the IC that controlled the Relay (ULN2003A Darlington transistor array). I ordered one of ebay (but RS,Farnell sell them for a cheaper price) Unsoldered the blown IC, soldered the new one on.

Put the Dishwasher back together, crossed my fingers, turned it on, and selected programme 2 (Normal wash) and pressed start. 1 hour and 50mins of intense tension later it had completed the whole cycle!!!!!!!! Ive never been so happy!!!

Cheers
Up yours Indesit!

Kenmore Elite Dishwasher clean light ind flashing and won't start


You will have to reset the console. To do this, close the door and press these buttons in sequence...

-high temp wash
-heated dry
-high temp wash
-heated dry

...all the lights will turn on briefly and the machine will start a diagnostic cycle. You can press cancel or let the diagnostic cyle finish (1-2 minutes).
You should now be able to run the dishwasher as normal.

Indesit W1A111 starts cycle when selector set to "off"


many indesits have a memory on board, set the timer to off position, turn on the mains press start let the machine finish what it is doing, and it will reset normally, turn off at mains for a few minutes can also do the trick, it sounds like one of the option buttons was pressed and you didn't let the timer finish its course,
