    The filter is infront but refuses to budge..so could be clogged? I'll try again with the hope that Ive loosened it.

    Thankyou.

Stale smell may be due to using liquid detergent - change to powder.

filter may be of two types. if in the front, unscrew cap and just pull. may be difficult is a foreign object like a bra wire is stuck inside.
other type of filter is in the large diameter pipe from bottom of machine to pump. take off small back bottom panel and undo this pipe at the machine end and filter is inside this pipe. pull out and clean

Check your water inlet valves. Seems like the valves have went away. Also check the computer board and inline fuse to make sure everything is correct. Inlet valve are located behind the supply line hoses. Please rate. Thank you

Try holding the Start/cancel button in for at least 2 seconds.

Stale water smell


If the washing machine itself smells bad when you open the door, it could be that it's covered in a horrible grease and gunge inside all the hoses and the tub. This particularly affects older washing machines and is common with washing machines that have only really been used at 40° or where only liquid detergent has been used.

Not using enough soap detergent over a long period of time can cause a build up of grease and therefore bad smells.
Get rid of washing machine smells

You could try to clean the washing machine inside using Soda crystals which dissolve grease. I recommend putting half a packet inside the drum and washing on a boil wash (or follow instructions on the packet) Using this method every month or so, or using ordinary detergent if no soda crystals are available can help prevent smells from your washing machine. If your washing machine is badly affected by grease and slime, it may be very difficult to remove it.

Get rid of washing machine odours using vinegar
White distilled vinegar has an array of uses. For bad washing machine smells, try putting half a cup of white vinegar inside an empty machine and put it on a boil wash. Because the first bit of water goes into the sump hose and is sealed off, I recommend that you wait until the washing machine has been filling for about 30 seconds and then pour the vinegar into the soap drawer to let it wash down into the machine. I've had reports back from people that this does actually work.

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean (ref manual). There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it (maximum 7 inches). Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Indesit washing machine, wil103


from the looks of it, this is called an f12 lights 1&2, communication error
which seems to be quite common. I've got the same problem.
If there's nothing in your filter, it could be the pcb (apparently, according to the research I've done so far).
Quite expensive apparently (£200?), but these machines don't seem very reliable, lots of people on the web having problems.

Bad Smell


Make a boil wash (with no clothes and detergents) put in the powder's drawer a cup of bicarbonate of soda. It should clean the machine and remove out the bad smell. Good luck!
