Salt Indicator Light Flashes Permanently On Indesit IDE 750 dishwasher

\015 I've filled the salt tray up but still get the salt light flashing on my new indesit IDE 750 dish washer. Any ideas?\015

Answers :

I think I have the answer.

On Yahoo Answers Blue Rizla Girl put up the idea that the sensor is some form of hydrometer. (i.e. floats in salty water sinks if not salty enough)

Based on this thought I postulated that the sensor is some form of hydrometer float in a tube with perhaps an optical sensor.

If this is correct why is it not working?

Is it because the float is stuck at the bottom of the tube, perhaps by some food debris? If so how can we fix it?

This is what I did on my Hotpoint FWD60:-

I took the salt filler cap off. There was no salt in the reservoir as it has been a problem for months, and I was only refilling it when dishes were not coming clean.

I poured 2 litres of hot water into the salt reservoir.

I then put the empty machine on the intensive 65 degree wash, half load and with the reservoir cap still OFF.

When finished I filled up with salt and HEY PRESTO the salt light is OFF!!!!

Just hope it stays that way until the reservoir really needs refilling.

While I was down on my hands and knees I took the opportunity to clean the filters in the sump. They do get full of bits!

I also flushed the sump by dashing a couple of cups of hot water into it and then bailing it out with a small yoghurt pot. I repeated this until the water in the yoghurt pot and the sump no longer had any signs of bits in them. (Dashing = vigorously pour)

I was amazed at how many bits I got out, especially considering I had given the machine a good clean in the past 6 weeks.

I even got part of a paper label!

So there we have it, try it out and report back.
Funnily enough I'm just looking at this site to try and get a copy of the operating instructions for our IDL 730 as I've only seen and read them once ... then we lost them !
\015\012 I do remember though, when I read the instructions, that they stressed that when you filled up with salt it would take several cycles before the lidght would stop flashing.
\015\012Maybe that had something to do with your problem ??

I have a Zanussi dishwasher model IT 5614. When I turn the dishwasher on, the indicator light is already stuck at "BIO 50" and won't move, and the dishwasher won't start when the door is closed.

My Hoover dishwasher HFI 3015 is not working. When you turn it on, the P1 and 'out of salt' light is flashing and bleeping constantly.

My smeg dishwasher seems to be permanently in wash mode. The light on the menu of settings no longer flashes, but permanently is on, and when I run a load it never stops. I hear the two beeps as if the dishwasher is starting a load so it seems to be cycling through over and over. How can I fix this and get the blinking light back? Thanks

We've got Beko DE 2542 FW Slimline dishwasher. Everything switches on as it is supposed to but nothing happens. Rinse aid and Salt indicator red light is not on, because we've filled them up. Switched on dishwasher, green light for "On" comes on. Selected programme level, pressed start. Green light comes on for "Wash" Nothing happens - we've left it overnight but nothing happens. What seems to be the problem? Look forward to hearing the solution.
