Question about Indesit W 123 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

My Indesit Washing machine doesn't seem to start?

Recently the machine has been working fine but on day one of the pipes leaked and maybe spilt some water on the top of the machine. We quickly turned everything off but just before, the machine cycle knob turned 360degrees before stopping and afterwards producing a burnt smell. We checked if any water had gone inside, but we found it completely dry. Now the machine won?t start. When we push the on switch we can hear a clicking noise and the light vaguely comes on then off but it just won?t start. Could anyone please help? Thank you

Most likely water has short-circuited your controls; you need a specialist here.

Our Roper Top Loading Washing Machine won't fill with cold water and the machine makes a electrical buzzing noise when you turn it on set to Cold/Cold.

Lift the top of your washing machine by unscrewing the back or remove the back and you will find a code and test sheet inside, you normally will find it at the top edge of the machine from or back. Very easy to use if followed to a T.

It sounds like the seal is worn out around the hose possibly or it is just loose and needs tightening. Depending on how old your machine is, the hoses get dried and cracked over time as do the seals.

Water leaks from bottom when filling

have you got the hot water pipe on? the water can sometimes flow back out this valve if it is not plugged.
has it been serviced recently? there is a pressure pipe that attaches to the side of the bowl, and a pump that need to be secured or you will get a leak from the bottom.
if is has become loud on spin recently, it could be that you have a leak from the main seal, and will need bearings replaced aswell, but that model seems a bit new to need bearings already, but it's not impossible.

Hi,maybe the draw dispencer is damaged,I wouldnt think it is the drum seal,what I would do is tilt the washing machine so that the top of the machine is leaning against the wall so that the front of the machine is of the ground,then while you get underneath the front on the floor with a torch get someone to put water in the dispencer and see if you can see where the water is leaking from,I hope this was some help,all the best.

Gas water heater works fine but gas is detected with gas detection meter. We checked for all leaks with soap and water but found nothing. Where is the smell comming from?

It could be that the vent pipe is not drawing properly. It may be clogged with a nest of some sort. Also, look at the burner in side the water heater,. Is it completely lighting or just partially. It may need cleaning. Especially, if it appears to be rusted. That would cause incomplete combustion.

To check the "draw" of the vent pipe.Turn a hot water faucet ON and let it run, so that the water heater will fire up. Then take a stick match, light it and then blow it out. Quickly, before the smoke from the match disappears, place it next to the top of the heater where the vent pipe is connected. If it's functioning properly, it should quickly draw the smoke up the exhaust vent pipe. If it doesn't than the exhaust pipe may be partially clogged.

If the water heater is 10 or more years old, I highly recommend replacing it for a new one. The new models are more energy efficient. Plus, they're not overly expensive (approximately $300 depending on the capacity). Check with Lowe's and Home Depot.

Is it possible to slow down or reduce the rate at which water drains out of the washing machine? My drain line is restricted and if the load is more than "Small", it drains too quickly and starts...

There is no flow adjustment on the drain on any washing machine, I had a similar problem on my old washing machine, I discovered the problem was the waste water pipe in my house was clogged with scum from detergent residue, I poured liquid plumber where the washing machine drain hose goes into the waste pipe in the house waited for 1/2 hour, then filled the washing machine with hot water, reinserted the drain hose, and wrapped it up with duct tape to prevent further leaks, and the force of hot water uncloged the pipe, .Problem solved

Water leaks from underneath Indesit WG1130d washing machine.

I had a problem like this and it turned out to be the hose that carried the water out to the drain was overflowing the drain pipe.
Make sure the P trap in your drain line is open and clear. A plumbers snake, draino, or a high pressure nozzle on your garden hose might help to clear it.
