Hi, My Indesit DPG15WH UK dishwasher does nothing for a few

Customer Question

Hi, My Indesit DPG15WH UK dishwasher does nothing for a few minutes when mains turned on, then the "end" light and the "standby" light start to flash together very fast.

None of the buttons do anything and it just stuck flashing the 2 lights.

What could the issue be?

Thank You for using JustAnswer - My name is Tony and I am more than happy to help with your question today.

The 2 flashing lights are your error code.
If you where to number the lights from left to right can you tell me what number lights are flashing.

This is indicating a blockage in the drain pump or drain hose.
Remove the filter from the bottom of the dishwasher and make sure there is no debris stuck in the sump.
Fill it with water from a bucket, press start and then close the door.
Make sure all the water is pumped out.
If the dishwasher alarms out again and you still have water in the sump then make sure the pump is indeed running and the drain hose is free.
Let me know what you find.
