SOURCE: Washing machine problem
my w830 is doing exactly the same thing.
I am usually pretty good at fixing these sort of things so if/when I solve it I will post back here.
I think it is a motor fault - most likely the motor brushes are worn out.

It is a defectiv controller pcb. I think the eeprom on the controller pcb lost its program (happens often on Indesit machines).
The only solution I know is to change the controller pcb, - not a cheap solution.
I have the same problem with WIDL 106.

Have had this problem on our Hotpoint WT741 washing machine. Fixed it this evening as far as I can tell. Seems it was a loose connection. Took the top off the machine and checked the ribbon connection to the display board at the top front. First, I removed the board (is held in by plastic clips - remove the programme selector knob first) and inspected to see it was okay then refitted it, making sure that the ribbon cable was pushed firmly onto the board. I then removed the rear access panel around the drain hose and checked the connections onto board at the bottom rear of the machine. I gave each connection a good push to check they were properly seated. Having done this, I have been unable to reproduce the fault with repeated switching off/on of the machine. It now appears to be working fine. I suspect the fault arises as a consequence of vibrations from the machine during operation causing one or more connectors to work loose - probably the ribbon cable on the front panel. So the problem should be rectified by checking these are properly seated. If you know what you are doing it's a simple job. Make sure you unplug the machine before accessing the machine and turn off the water supply. Don't attempt this if you aren't sure what you are doing and aren't confident with electronics.
