Question about Indesit W 123 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Program selector knob keeps turning

It is getting increasingly difficult to get the washer to start correctly. I have tried a number of different start sequences, including:
1. Switching mains plug socket on, selecting program, pressing the on button (proper start sequence).
2. Switching mains plug socket on, selecting the reset of the program section I want to use, pressing the on button and waiting 30 seconds for reset, switching off button, selecting the required program, switching the on button.
I now don't put any washing liquid/powder in until I'm sure that the program is working correctly.
Your help will be greatly appreciated.
Yvonne

How i get off demo mode


Hello Mark, thank you for your inquiry!
I understand that your Electrolux washer is in demo mode and you need help in getting it out of it. In order to get your washer out of demo mode you would need to turn the cycle selector knob to spin only/time dry. Press start then the cancel button. Activate the control panel by turning the cycle selector knob to spin only/time dry cycle. Press and hold the cancel button with the soil level/extended tumble button (third button from the left) for three seconds. This should deactivate demo mode on your washer. If you continue to experience issues with your washer please comment back and reply with your model number. You can locate the serial tag (which lists your model number) on the door frame of your washer. I hope this information is helpful to you. -Matt

Model EWF10843. How do I select diagnostic mode?


Electrolux Diagnostic Mode
* Press the Cancel button to enter standby mode and enable diagnostic entry.
* Within 10 seconds after pressing Cancel , press any button to wake up the control.
* Within 5 seconds of wake up, turn the selector knob to the far left cycle and press and hold Cancel and far left
button under the display simultaneously for 3 seconds to enter the diagnostic mode.




To save time at wake up, the Welcome screen can be bypassed by turning the selector knob.





1. Upon entering diagnostic mode, all lights should flash for 1¼"x2" display models and all lights on for the 1¼" x
4 3/4" display models.
2. Turn the program knob (1) click clockwise from the start position. The hot water solenoid will activate and hot water
should enter through the detergent compartment.
3. Turn the program knob (2) clicks from the start position. The bleach water solenoid will activate and cold water
should enter through the bleach compartment.
4. Turn the program knob (3) clicks from the start position. The bleach and the wash water solenoids will activate and
cold water should enter through the softener compartment.
5. Turn the program knob (4) clicks from the start position. The prewash solenoid will activate and cold water should
enter through the prewash compartment.
6. Turn the program knob (5) clicks from the start position. The door lock solenoid will deactivate and the loading door
can be opened. When the door is opened, the drum light should turn on.
7. Turn the program knob (6) clicks from the start position. The door lock will activate and the washer will fill then
tumble. Once tumbling has started, the boost heater will turn on.
8. Turn the program knob (7) clicks from the start position. The drain pump will activate draining out any water in the
tub and the washer will operate in high spin.
9. Turn the program knob (8) clicks from the start position. This is a free position.
10. Turn the program knob (9) clicks from the start position. The control will signal the last 5 error codes with E00
being no error.
11. Turn the program knob (10) clicks from the start position. Latest software version will be shown.
12. If applicable, turn the program knob (11) clicks from the start position. This is a free position




Exiting Diagnostic ModeA) Unplug the power cord, wait 5-8 seconds, then reconnect the power cord or
Turn the program knob clockwise back to the start position. Press the Cancel and far left button under the display

until the LED's stop flashing

Pressure foot pressure control


The pressure foot knob had some problems. on this model. The solution was to remove the covers and the e clip that holds the knob in place. I install a belleville spring washer on the knobs shaft. This extra tension keeps the knob from turning when the sewing machine vibrates. This may be more difficult than most consumers want to attempt.

My washer test runs great I hear every thing working correctly but when I do laundry it doesn't spin. How can I fix this issue. I am getting an error code f7 e1


I know how frustrating it can be when appliances do not function properly.

This particular washer has a test that we can run to see any errors. This can be confusing on this model.

I am including a document below that will describe how to view the old error codes. Use the section that starts with Activating the service diagnostic modes. You can start with the cycle selector knob at any position.

  1. Be sure the washer is in standby mode (plugged in with all indicators off).
  2. Perform the following sequence of movement using the cycle selector knob. NOTE: After reset, sequence "a" through "e" must be completed within 6 seconds. When it tells you to rotate the cycle selector knob, it means 1 click, not a full turn. Once you have completed the cycle knob turns reset and "a" through "e", turn the cycle selector 1 click clockwise from the position it is already in. This is the fault code display mode. Then press the start button. Each time you turn the cycle selector knob 1 click clockwise after pressing start will show you an error code. Note: this washer stores 4 codes if any. The error codes on this washer are displayed in this format: F5 E3, F7 E1, etc. There is an error code chart in the image below.

If there are no error codes stored, I recommend that you start from the beginning (step 1 above) and then run the Automatic test mode. If this unit detects a problem, it will display the error at the end of this test.

I hope this is helpful. Post back your results.

hello try restting it before you bin it
  1. Turn the washing machine off with the on off button.
  2. Turn the selector knob to a dot, or any off position
  3. Turn the washing machine back on and watch for rapid flashing on the neon light
  4. Turn the washing machine off and select the new program (or maybe spin)
  5. Turn it back on and the new program should start
NOTE: Resetting the timer selector knob as shown above may stop the clicking round, but if your washing machine has a fault, the clicking round may return when your washing machine encounters the fault again. If your washing machine's program selector knob is clicking round on its own, then read the section above Washing machine stops with lights flashing hope it helps
