I have an Indesit dishwasher just over a year old. The draw where you deposit the liquid or blocks does not?
open during the wash cycle. I now have to wait until the cold rinse has finished and then manually open the door. Any ideas please before I call Indesit and pay a fortune for labour.
open during cycle. I do put the liquid in the drawer first. I found the liquid was still intact after the wash. Now I have to open the drawer manually when cyale has started.
James Conley answers:
There are several reasons for this problem,
1) the programme controller might be malfunctioning and not sending the signal to the solenoid that opens the drawer.
2) the heating element may not be heating the water to a hot enough temperature for the programme to sense that it needs to release the drawer.
3) the thermostat is not working and is not sending the correct temperature signal to the programme controller.
4) the insulation on the wiring loom that travels up the front of the door from the bottom of the machine has become hard and brittle, and the seal at the bottom of the door has let a small amount of water through and as this is salty water it has got into the wiring loom and corroded the copper conductor so causing the cable to snap.( this happened to my machine and all i did was to seperate the two skins of the door and replaced the affected cable and seal and my machine was back in full service )
if you are not happy with using tools etc then you will need to contact your local dish washer repair man, but they are not cheap especially if they are tied to a set manufacturer, the best way to find a reliable repairer is to check with your local trading standards office who should be able to supply you with a list of reliable engineers in your area.
What steps can we take to decrease our water consumption?
In Australia and all over the world, water is becoming scarce. Droughts have led to water restrictions in the cities as well as in agriculture and manufacturing. So, I want to know what you think are the best and most innovative ways to decrease water consumption?
I am the real Jay-Z and you can check out what I have been getting up to on water conservation in the Yahoo!7 Answers Team blog – http://au.blog.360.yahoo.com/blog-txN._0woRKfpYuTJw9rObY.WmgiUW5xm?p=554

Hi Jay-Z. It is great that you are using your fame to push this important topic. These are some simple steps that people can take to decrease their use of water –
Kitchen and laundry:
-Only use the dishwasher and washing machine when they are full. Use the sink when you have a small number of dishes to wash.
-When buying a dishwasher or washing machine make sure it’s a water-saver by looking for the ‘AAA’ rating.
-Install tap aerators to reduce water flow.
-Use the sud-saver option when doing the laundry.
-Fix toilet leaks. (Tip – add food colouring to the cistern water and let it sit for 15 minutes; if it appears in the toilet bowl without flushing you’ve got a leak).
-Don’t leave the tap running when you brush your teeth.
-Keep your showers short, use a timer. A shower uses 10 to 20 litres of water a minute.
-Install water saving shower heads and dual flush toilets.
-Insulate your water heater and hot water pipes so you waste less water while waiting for the hot water to flow.
-When building a new house place the hot water service as close as possible to the wet areas (i.e. Bathroom, laundry etc).
-Give the garden a good soak two or three times a week to encourage deep root growth. This is more efficient that a light watering every day.
-Water during the coolest time of the day to avoid wasting water through evaporation.
-Install drip irrigation for flowers and shrubs.
-Mulch and compost around plants to reduce evaporation and improve water holding capacity.
-Select natives and other plants which require less water.
-If you don’t have a timer on your hose, use the oven timer to remind you to turn the tap off.
-Fix leaky hoses and hose connections.
-Recycle water for fountains and water ornaments.
-Use automatic shot-off nozzles on your hoses.
-Avoid using sprinklers in hot or windy conditions – water in cool, calm conditions in the morning or evening.
Around the home:
-Check your home’s water meter for system leaks. To test, turn off all taps and water-using appliances, read the meter, then wait 30 minutes and read it again. If the dial has moved, you may have a leak in the toilet or water pipe.
-Sweep driveways, footpaths and steps instead of hosing them down.
-Install a rainwater tank with a pumping system and plumb it to your house
-Use a bucket to wash the car.
-Use a cover on your pool to reduce evaporation.
-Check your pool and its pipe work regularly and repair any leaks.
-Consider buying a pool filter that uses less water during filter cleaning.
Install a Rainwater Tank:
For information on selection and installation of rainwater tanks systems see the Australian Greenhouse Office site for the brochure on ‘ Your Home Guide’.
Water saving appliances
Water-using appliances are rated from A to AAAAA, the more ‘A’s the more water efficient the product. By purchasing products which are more water efficient, not only will you save water and money, you will use less energy and therefore reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
