When i Press start the washing machine clicks a few times then red padlock light comes on. Door interlock changed but still happening. Any help appreciated.

I gather that the interlock has been replaced and now the padlock symbol lights up plus some clicking. I think the clicks are the door lock engaging and the padlock just shows this. Do the clicks continue? Does the door stay locked? If so I believe you have a fix.

27 KVA is a huge generator and should work just as well as the grid. The only thing I can think of is the startup current, which can easily be 5 times the running current is playing havoc.

You might try tightening up all your lugs and screws in your panel. A loose neutral can create some truly weird problems.

Flashing lights

There is a Light Flashing on my Indesit Washing Machine

Many of our newer Indesit Washing Machines have a series of indicator lights, which flash to indicate a possible fault on your installation or simply to let you know a problem occurred whilst you were away from your Indesit Washing Machine.

Pre wash light flashing
Indicates a failure of your Indesit Washing Machine to fill correctly. Check your fill hoses for a blockage, a leak, a kink or to make sure that they are turned on.

Wash light flashing
Indicates that your programme dial has been moved from its original position. Simply returning the wash dial to its original position will restore the light to its original status.

Spin light flashing
Indicates that the Indesit Washing Machine has considered the wash load to be excessively un-balanced. Open up the door of the Indesit Washing Machine, re-distribute the garments and retry the spin to resolve this.

End light flashing
Indicates that the Indesit Washing Machine has reached the end of a wash programme.

Wash, rinse and spin lights all lit at the same time would indicate a possible blockage in your under sink wastes system. Check out the additional informationin our 'My Indesit Washing Machine Will Not Empty'

Washing machine fault

Usually indicates door is not closed properly.
If it is shut securely, and still does not work, then you could have a faulty door lock.
Another possibility is the control unit could be faulty.

Indesit WA105 - drum is loose and fails to spin

Hi Jezzer69 It is repairable but will take about 3 -4 hours (if you know what your doing) and the parts will cost about 65% of what a new machine will cost. You need to weigh up how old the machine is and or if its "beyond economical repair" Regards
