Question about Indesit W 123 Front Load Washer
I can not start WIDL 106 washing/dryer machine. As soon as I plug the machine, ON/OFF-DOOR, Function Buttons and Drying LEDS Flashes rapidly. Recently I changed the washing machine wash element. Since then I run couple of trouble less washing cycles. Then the problem starts.
I manage to run the programs several times, although the LED were flashing by plug/unplug the pover supply cable. Every time it was harder and longer to run the programs, until it stops responding completly.
I think it is related to the electronic of the machine, but I would like to get your expert opinion.
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.

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or back feedback from the inputs. The processor of the program controller has hung up and so the display is indicating with the blinking. This can be a failure of the program controller unit which must be estimatted. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET valve to open up and allow water to flow into. If this does not happen then the voltage at the inlet valve must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.
If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.
Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin.
Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.
