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.

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.

Suggestion: The pipe behind your machine has to have a certain height (the machine drain pipe); it does not go directly into the drain at floor level. Check this out.

I have the same issue, have just returned from a 9 month break and now the washer does the click thing, but if you open and close the door a few times and set to program 4 is seems to work after about 10 minutes! It was perfect when I left, not 18 months old either. Can see it being the timer either, maybe a pickup of some type not detecting a level? Peter
