    Hi, when it was washing - dont know when in the cycle I heard like popping noises - I was in another room..then I went to the washing machine and it had steam coming out of the top ...

    then I think it must have switched itself off and it wouldnt switch back on friend came round and checked the fuse but said it wasnt that..

    it wont even switch on again...

    can u help? Thanks, Fiona.

    Thx, the guy who came round was from Indesit ...our machine was bought from John Lewis and its still got warranty until Dec so should be free..but its the time that is a prob...the guy said water might have dribbled down from the top of washing machine but I dont really know I am worried that there is something else to fix..and cos the wiring is out of stock and no idea when it will get fixed I am stressing cos ive mountains of washing including work wear that needs thinking maybe theres somewhere I could get the wiring part from b4 them seeing as they dont seem to be bothered....?

    Cheers, Fiona.

    Hey fiona....

    You know this sounds like a seal that leaks water,and unfortunatly you would have to check the wiring and you do get some times that if water did leak it short ciruit the wires that burns them off in the isolation, so yes i woul agree that you have to re wire BUT if so you would have to fix what ever caused it to laek in the first place....

    This could get realy expensive so i would advize you to get a repair man thats trust worthy and just ask for a quote first and deside from there on...

    Sorry if this is bad news....

    Hope you will get it right.

    Regards Wouter..

I have an Indesit Washer/dryer (WIDL 126 S), and it is dot draining the water. I set in on drain or dry and nothing happens, it just fills with more water.

Check back of washe with a flashlight for a bent or clogged drain hose. Do not move washer to check it. When you move it , it will straighten out and you will never know if it was bent
Also while it is pumping , pick up end of drain hose at drain and observe the volume of water being pumped.
If no water then the Pump needs replaced.
Thank you for using fixya

Hello, this usually is signaling that there is a problem in your machine. You will need to get a service technician in to diagnose the problem for you. I hope this is somewhat helpful.

Widl 126

this could be down to a poor connection from one pcb to the other, best thing to do is disconnect one block at a time (make a note of where it goes) and clean the connections.

hope this helps

Washing machine filling with water when switched off

Electric inlet valve doesn't close properly. You should get it replaced ASAP. It is a cheap part and quite easily replaceable. Turn off water to your machine until you fix this and keep it unplugged.

Indesit widl 102 extra rinse button always on!

Check that the button isn't stuck it if not remove top lid and check the PCB and see if the switch hasn't collapsed causing it to be on all the time. Also if you hold in the go button for about 5 seconds this resets the program try this.

Thanks J
