Hoping there may be someone out there who has an indesit dishwasher, in
particular a D63. Mine has just flooded my kitchen! Its not even 6 months
old and I have had most of it replaced. I now know tha the machine is
riddled with problems, as last time the engineer came he kindly left he call
sheet for the past 2 months. No more than 24 calls for my model of
dishwasher, all under 12 monsth old!
I am about to write to currys to demand i get a full refund as the goods are
not up to spec, has anyone had similar problems that can add weight to my
OK, here we go, in as few words as possible, with as little anger as
We had a DG6145 slimline model, maybe from Currys but maybe Comet, not sure,
can find out if important
First one replaced within about 8 months, the metal door seal holder came
away completely and would need welding so they replaced the whole thing.
then another 8 months later the pressure pump motor jammed and so no water
was going thru so we had a few melted items!! but out of warraty so, tough
then, once we had freed up the motor, the fill level pressure sensor broke
so it flooded everywhere (like yours) and then the polystyrene flood switch
stuck to the base tray which was corroded because of the flooding.
So, basically 2 dishwashers in less than 2 years !!
I will being going to a company like Miele who, i think, give a 5 year
warranty. Over double the price though!!
Also, if you have a look inside the dishwashers in an electrical store show
room, see how many of them are exactly the same inside as others. Miele are
the only ones that don't appear to have a doppleganger.
Eeek, sounds worse than mine! I guess i am most angry about it the reason i
had to call them the first time is becasue the disjwasher wouldn;t start,
apperently be cause the sensor to stop the machine overfilling and flooding
had been triggered. Does it trigger when it shoud have, no!!!! If i hadn;t
been stood in the kitchen I dread to think what a state my kitchen would be
in, I tend to turn it on before goign to work. 10 hours of non stop water!!!
The sensor is actually just a piece of polystyrene that floats up and stops
the overflow, so it can very easily get stuck to the sides in either
position. dreadful really
Unfortunately our story doesn't stop there, our hot water heat exchange went
at the same time, in the same week! so not only do we have to hand wash
dishes (very hard after owning a dishwasher) but we either have to remember
to put the immersion on half an hour before or boil the kettle a few times.
A little good has come out of the whole situation though, because the water
system is integrated with the warm air heating and the whole thing is a bit
dodgy, so we are going to get the whole system sorted and get radiators!
and we are going to cut the kitchen up a little to make room for a full size
dishwasher, because full size is cheaper than slimline believe it or not!
Well if it makes you feel any better I have just managed to flood my kitchen
again! Not as bad! by tryign to fix the radiator! it never rains but it
