Hi there i have an indesit washing machine and the drum has just stopped turning even by hand thanks craig


If you cannot turn the drum by hand, then there are a couple of possibilities that come to mind.
1- it is possible the drum bearings have siezed up,, remove lower rear panel of washer, and remove the belt the drum should be free to turn.
If it does not, then it is either the main bearings, or there is something fast between the inner and outer drum..
2- if the drum is free to turn, then it could be the moior bearings seized up.

Severe drum? shaking and display lights flicker during spin cycle


Loose mounting points or broken pins. If not that then possibly drum shaft could be cracked.

Indesit 1000 cycle starts but then lights flash


Check the filter which is under the white panel at the front of the machine(the filter is in the lower right hand corner). Unscrew the filter and remove it. Mine was blocked with loads of grease/limescale. I cleared it out and the machine is as good as new again. I cleared the system with half a packet of soda crystals put into the main drum (on its own without any washing in!) and did a wash at 90degrees. Its as good as new now. Good luck. CK
