Indesit WIDL126 washer/dryer

I do not seem to be able to undo the fluff trap at the front of my machine. I can take the front flap of the front. But I cannot undo the knob inside to release the trap where the fluff ect collects? I do not wish to force it as I may damage the knob to turn it. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks pinklady

No magic to it. use a pair of pliers. you are unlikely to do any damage - just the thread stiff

Washing comes out covered in fluff and bits after drying?

check to make sure that the lint trap is clean and clear -- also check the exhaust hose and outside vent for any obstructions. also check the vent holes that lead to the lint trap -- sometimes these can become plugged up with fibers and not lint out the wash proper.

Where does the fluff go when you use the dryer on

The lint should go in the lint trap. If it doesn't go in the lint trap it goes out the exhaust pipe if the lint trap is not installed.

My Indesit WIDL126 washer/dryer doesn't dry clothes

You have an air flow problem. This usually happens when the exhaust pipe/vent gets clogged. Clean/inspect the vent outlet, the pipe, the inlet, and the filter/lint catcher area.

Improper air flow prevents the moisture from being vented out of the dryer.

My Indesit Washer dryer WIDL126 will not work all the LED lights are flashing continually.I have tried turning off at the plug and then on again, but no good. Any answers please?

My guess without seeing the machine is - The motor has gone / failed.
You could get someone to check the brushes on the motor, it's only a 30 minute job.
If the brushes are ok i.e more then 10mm long, I suspect the motor has burnt out if the machine is a number of years old.
Hope this helps

Indesit 1200 washer/dryer instructions

probable cause is just poor water flow from outside. switch water off. undo hoses and check not kinked. in each hose, there should be a gauze filter. clean this. look inside the valve spigot and check no dirt buid-up. put hoses in a bucket and check water flow is ok. remove drawer and check holes in top of box are clear
