May I have the full model # of your dishwasher?

is it the heater element and if so how easy is it to replace?
Expert:  Michael replied 1 year ago.

Hi Im sorry for the delay but I am not in all day on Sunday's.

I did send you a phone call request, if you accept that, I can call you ASAP.

Also, Indesits typically take about 3 cycles after refilling the salt before the light goes out. According to the manual it's normal. Yours might be the same.

And, make sure there is no excess moisture in the salt container ;-)

If the above doesn't work for you then ring Hotpoint on 08709 066 066, I've found them to be unusually helpful

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.

Please rate my service kindly.

Also it is the only way I am credited for my time and expertise with you.

Once you rate, I will be notified and will add your question to my priority list so you can reach me anytime until this problem is solved.

Then you can reach me by simply replying to this message anytime.

Thank you and have a great day!
