Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

My indesit iwc6105 washing machine is not draining at all.

I tried cleaning the filter at the bottom of the maching and got nearly 40 pints out and the mains water was switched off! Im giving up hope as have only had the machine for 4-5 months and cannot afford a new machine. Please help if you can.

Belt, Water Pump If the washer won't drain the pump belt might have broken or might have worn out. Check the belt and replace if it shows signs of excessive wear.

Drain Pump If the washer won't drain water the drain pump might be defective. It's also common for a small sock or other article of clothing to get caught in the drain pump or in the drain hose. Check both for an obstruction before replacing the pump.

Clogged Pump or Hose If the washer won't drain there might be a clogged pump or hose. It's common for small socks or other small clothing items to get into the water drain system and clog the hose leading to the pump or the pump itself. Remove the hoses from the pump in order to remove the article of clothing. Keep in mind that any water in the washer will pour out of the hoses when removed.

Drive Belt If the washer won't drain, should check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't drain properly, if at all.

Lid Switch Assembly If the washer won't drain the lid switch assembly might be defective. This is a very common problem. The lid switch assembly can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any electrical switches with an Ohm meter for continuity. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Door Lock Motor and Switch Assembly If the washer won't drain the door lock assembly should be checked. The door lock can fail either mechanically or electrically. Test any switches on the door lock with an Ohm meter. The switches should have continuity according to their design.

Drain Hose If the washer won't drain water check the drain hose. Be sure the hose did not get kinked behind the washer. Also, remove the hose from the pump and check it for obstructions.

Coin Trap If the washer won't drain the coin trap may be clogged. This washer is equipped with a device near the water pump called a coin trap. The purpose of this device is to trap any foreign materials that make their way down the drain. Normally, the coin trap can be accessed through an access panel. It is designed with the homeowner in mind and is normally easy to clean out

SOURCE: Indesit Washing Machine not proceedding with the cycle programme after filling with water.

Cant understand how the machine will revolve on the 'spin cycle' & yet you can hear the motor on the 'wash cycle' but yet it doesnt revolve!!
Nomally if the water fills, & the tub revolves without the programmer advancing, its because the heater is not working. ie faulty thermostat, heat element, or maybe a wire burned off in the 'heater circuit'. Check if you have 240 volts at both ends of the heat element, with a meter or 240 volt bulb
                         !! BE CAREFUL OF 240VOLTS!!

Push panel right or left side. Unscrew or turn anti-clock wise, according to your model. Be prepared for some water. Pull this out and clean, refit carefully. Of course it is meant to be removed and cleaned periodically, according to usage. Rate me pl.

Your model of washer dryer is fittted with a self cleaning pump, and may not have a filter fitted.
To check if it has, remove lower plinth at bottom of m/c, and if there is a plastic panel there ,remove that as well.
If there is a filter fitted, you will see it at the bottom right front, it has a round cover, unscrew anti clockwise, remove and clean filter.
Pleas leave a fixya rating if you consider my solution appropiate to your query.
Thankyou.

Indesit IWC6105 Keeps filling with water and lights flashing


Almost certain to be a power pcb failure due to the fact it fills and drains at the same time this is a regular fault symptom on indesit laundry appliances. Word of caution tho inde pcb's are generic to a range and the software must be programmed via a lap top to your specific appliance so you can't just order a pcb and pop it in sorry

Is there a filter on a indesit wdg1095w


The lint filters on washing machines over the past 10+ years are mounted unter the tub. When the spin cycle starts, the water drains out of the tub, through the filter to clean it out/off, and out through the drain hose.

Washing machine won't drain


Sounds like the pump is not working, or the filter is blocked.
If there is a removable bottom front panel of washer, remove this and the filter should be located behind it. Remove and clean.
Please rate my solution.
Thanks.

clean the debris filter usually situated at the bottom of the washing maching you will need to open the panel, you should see a rubber tube with a bung in the end you need to take the bung out in order to drain the washer, once you have drained the washer you can clean the filter by unscrewing the large black round bung. hope this helps
