If you washed coins, it is quite possible you have breached outer tub with them.

My indesit wib111 wont go ignto o spin cycle or empty.it fills and washes ok


Washing Machines do not spin when filled with water for obvious reasons. Have you checked the filter? this could be blocked with a build of fluff etc.
Can you hear the pump running when it is supposed to be emptying. This means there is a blockage. Can you hear a "humming" This means the pump is jamed, may be a coin or some other small item. If there is no sound then the pump is most likely at fault.

F05 water will not go Indesit washing machine


F05 - Pressure switch jammed on full - Book a washing machine repair.

Was what the manual said. But then I found this write up from another source:

Drain machine by running the outlet pipe into a bucket at floor level or run the outlet pipe out of the back door if it'll reach. Check the filter unit for blockages. Filter generally located behind a panel at the foot of the machine.Some are obvious like little square hatches and some are hidden behind the trim panel at the foot of the machine. Once panel is removed the filter should be visible. Its generally a circular plastic fitting which unscrews in an anticlockwise direction. Some hotpoint, indesit and ariston filters are located in the big black sump hose (the one that leaves the bottom of the outer drum and connects to the pump). Remove the back cover, locate hose, remove the tensioner clip by squeezing the tabs together with a set of heavy pliers or vise grips, remove the hose, take out filter and clean. Be prepared for spillage of water. May help if the machine is tilted backwards at an angle.
If problem persists, check pump and pump hose. Pump removal: power off, drag machine out onto the floor, remove back cover or tip machine up at an angle, locate pump, (attached to other end of drain pipe).undo 2 wiring connections, 2 hose connections, and pump mounting screws. Remove pump chamber - some are held in with screws, others clip into place. Check for foreign objects round the impeller. If pump chamber is clear, may be a fault with the pump motor - in which case, replace the pump.

Wixl123 does not drain after washing ?


Drainage problems can be caused by:
a) Blocked Filter chamber
b) Blocked Sump
c) Blocked Drain Pipe

d) Blocked waste pipe
e) Failed Pump

You can check the sump and drain pipe are not blocked by disconnecting the drain pipe from the undersink trap or waste pipe and lowering to a bowl on the floor. The water should drain out into this bowl under gravity if there are no blockages. Bear in mind if you have disconnected the drain pipe from an undersink pipe if youpour the drained water down the sink it will flood into your undersink cupboard. If this drains then you check the waste pipe or undersink trap is clear. You should also check the filter chamber if it is accessible on your washing machine (not all are). I would recommend you unplug the machine or take the fuse out of the switched socket before doing this. Drain the drum as above before doing this or you will get a gush of water coming out. You will usually have to remove a cover from the bottom of your machine to get to the filter chamber and twist it ant-clockwise to unscrew it. Check for any coins buttons etc trapped in there. If there is nothing there check the impeller will turn relatively easily by hand. If you still can't find the problem you might have a faield pump and I would recommend contacting an enginee

Push start and machine wont fill and draining/unlocking light sarts blinking about 2 seconds later


My machine had the exactly same problem:
1. Push Start button to wash, but Draining/Unlocking light will flash right away. The drum started to run and stopped
2. No error code shown up
3. Run Quick test: no error code
4. Run Universal Test: error code F25 (later, found nothing wrong with the CCU)
What I did:
1. Clean the bump: found coins and strings.
2. Clean the drain pipe from the pump to tub: found more coins.
3. Clean chamber of pressure switch at the tub: found nothing.
4. Clean the gap between tub and drum: found a credit card!
After the cleanings, the Draining/Unlocking light would still come back and I almost gave up. Amazingly, I ignored it and a few minutes later.... the machine started to run as normal!
It seems that CCU needs sometime to reset itself after the failure.

Indesit WIDL1265 flashing lock, rinse and timer lights. won't drain or spin


Hi
Problem possibly caused by blockage in drain pump filter. If you remove the bottom plynth you will find a black screw cap (about 2" diamiter). BEFORE you unscrew you will have to make sure you have plenty of towels and low bowls because all the water from the drum will flood your kittchen if you unscrew!!!

How I do it is that i (with someones help) try and pull the washing machine out . Then i tip it up 45 degrees With someone holding the washing machine I place plenty of towels underneath the washing machine and SLOWLY open the filter.
I bowl will catch a lot of water but it will still be messy.
When all the water has drained pull the filter out completely and you will probably find all sorts of debris there.
If the filter is clean look inside the filter body just in case there is a coin or two there as these will jam the drain pump and stop it from draining.

Hope this helps

Indesit w93 washing machine fills with water but doesn't start washing


Hi there. I have an old model, the indesit WM12. Never counted the flashing light (yours was 10) but my dial started clicking constantly at the drain part. I called Idesit and they told me it was a blockage in the filter.
The filter they speak of it located, on mine, at the front of the machine at the very bottom on the right. It is a black dial about 3 - 4 inches in diameter. Unscrew that anti-clockwise (a real pain because so much water comes out. My wife and I unscrewed it, filled a baking tray with water, screwed it back up, emptied / substituted tray then same all over again - until empty. Though putting it on drain again and again helped at same time). When I pulled out the filter found a 'colour catcher' sheet in it. We used them first time ever the other day. Removed that, gave filter a wee clean and, hey presto, all is working again. Hope that helps. Jim
