I Need to find the location and orientation of the eprom micro chip on the pcb module for an indesit washer dryer , model widl 126s uk. I bought a replacement module but the eprom comes seperate and needs soldering in.

Is it Indent ?
Many basic UK Indesit washing machines fitted with a rotary dial indicate error codes by clicking the dial continuously round and flashing the door lock light a set number of times.
If the door light (LED) flashes 7 times it means, "Heater relay stuck - check connections on heater and module (PCB)".
In my experience, this fault code usually required a replacement PCB and EEProm. A connection fault on the heater usually results in the entire washing machine going dead. Nothing will work, but the LEDs light up. This symptom can also be caused by an open circuit motor or other faults.
It's always possible for a connection fault to cause error codes but the heater relay is embedded in the PCB and if it develops a fault the whole board needs replacing. I don't recommend replacing the PCB as a DIY repair. It is an expensive part and it will not be guaranteed unless fitted by an engineer. New PCBs do not come with the micro-chip EEPROM which would also need fitting. Replacing the PCB and EEPROM yourself is risky. If the fault is not cured you cannot send the parts back.
If you have an engineer to replace the PCB and EEPROM I would imagine the cost is likely to easily be over £100. If your washing machine has a 5 year parts guarantee Indesit would supply the PCB free of charge but only if their own engineer fits it at a cost of about £90.
If you are really keen to fix this yourself and want to try another PCB there is a company that might be able to help and are happy to deal with the public called Quality Electronic Repairs (see link below)
Really need the make and model as different manufacturers use the same code to mean different things. Hotpoint/Indesit/Creda F09 on almost all appliances means "Eprom Fault" this is a problem with the main control chip and you will need an engineer to reprogram the main module or swap it out. If it's Bosch, then the good news is F09 means "Heater Fault" which almost certainly means a cheap £20 replacement heating element needs fitting
hello any spin problem can be down to the module board the fact you've had turn the dial which is the programmer sound like this is the fault if this is the case you may need to be looking for new washer. sorry to be negative i hope you find a solution
Error code F08 means that the heaterrrelay cannot be activated.
Check the connections to the Pressure switch, the Module,and the Heater element.
If you can, test the element of the heater to make sure it is o/k.
Hope this helps.
I suggest you check the fuse on electronic module which is located to the right side of the drum. Getting to it no easy task as you must remove the rear panel and top cover and jam an object thick enough for your arm to passbetween the drums and the machine body. Please ensure you earth yourself before touching this pcb as the static in your body may blow the intergrated circuits and eproms.
I hope this solves your problem.
