    HI,

    D/W is just over 12 months old! and the 2nd and 4th lights from the left both start flashing about 3/4 way through the programme and the cycle stops.

    Any ideas anyone?

    Thanks,

    Led 1= Prewash / 3hr
    Led 2= Wash / 6hr
    Led 3= Rinses / 9 hr
    Led 4= Drying / 12hr

    LED. illuminated
    1 = Overflow ( water in base )

    1+2 = Pump timeout, or Software recognition error ( timer not programmed, wrong keypad)

    1+3 = Circulation pump not working

    2+3 = Not filling

    2+4 = Heating circuit not working

    2 = Solenoid valve 'broken'

    3 = Thermistor (NTC) cicuit not working

    4 = Temp not reached whilst heating ( poss NTC detached from casing).

    It is usually necessary to 'reset' the machine after a fault code has been displayed.

    Resetting.
    Switch dishwasher OFF, rotate the selector switch to STOP/CHANGE and switch on, after a few seconds the LEDS will go out enabling a new programme to be selected

    check that the thermister is attacted to the door, remove front panel and there should be a white clip on the rear of dispenser.if thats ok turn rinse aid down to 1 .and dont use 3 in 1 tabs and rinse aid and salt it causes it to overfoam in the heater.just use 3 in 1 on its own .

    Hi,

    We have a IDL 42, which stopped working. Led 1 flashes, which seems to mean that we have 'water in base'.

    How can I fix this? Anyone ideas?
    (rocks1?)

    Thanks.

    Water does in deed leak out when tipping it backward. I will try to find out whether it is due to the spray arm or salt pot.

    Do you know how I can best approach that area?

    Thanks again!

    last posts have been very helpful. Found the leak and was able to fix it.

    Now the last light flashes (nr 4), which means that:
    'Temp not reached whilst heating ( poss NTC detached from casing)'
    Somehow the machine showed this problem a little while ago, but especially while using washing program nr1. Now as well with washing program nr3.

    Do you have any idea how to approach this problem? And what exactly is the NTC?

    Thanks for your time and advise!

    I have an IDL 705, originally was tripping main circuit due to a leak, now fixed. how ever on restarting the DW lights 1 and 3 flash (presume = circulation pump??) is there an easy fix? or will i need to replace pump?
    generally how much would it cost to get a service engineer in to do it?

    Thanx for any advice

    Identified the NTC finally. Tried to refit it (still seems a bit loose). Do I need to get some of the white paste to increase contact?
    The 4th LED still flashes whatever I tried until now. Do NTC's wear out or stop working some time? Or is it just the attachment?

    Kind regards.

    Hi there,
    Hopefully you can help me with mine ? The 2nd & 4th are flashing which thanks to your guide says that it is the Heating circuit. But how would you recommend I go about trying to fix this myself?
    Any help would be very much appreciated.

    Thanks Nick
