This error code seems to be the control board detecting a wrong configuration (in other words, an illogical set of sensing conditions, from its connected sensors and wiring). It apparently can happen, when wires become badly contacting, or if contaminated with motor brush carbon (the horrible black powder that comes off the motor commutator and brushes), or corroded from other contaminants from the soap dispenser area. You should be able to check this, remove, clean and replace the contacts:
Take the top off the machine, (ENSURE IT IS UNPLUGGED) and on the right hand side of the machine, you should see a set of 4 blue wires that go from the electronics module to the front display unit. Take this plug off (it is held on by plastic retainers) clean with wd40, or silicone contact cleaner, then dry, replace, then try again. If it is very badly corroded or pitted, you may have to replace that part of the wiring and socket.
If it is not that, then the wiring to/from various other sensors could be damaged, or the control board could be faulty. It is probably worth checking around other plugs and sockets, re-seating each one in turn, that lead to the control board, before calling an engineer in, or getting a spare board, as they are expensive. Pulling off and plugging back on (Re-seating) the plugs and sockets has the effect of cleaning the contacts, and may fix certain intermittent faults like this. Obviously check for any plugs/sockets that appear burnt, corroded, or discoloured compared with the others, and clean the contacts with emery or a needle file.
hope this helps....

SOURCE: I just bought a Zanker
Hi, the machine normally comes with the English version of the user manual and if you can find it then you have to contact the company directly to request for it because it is not readily available online....

SOURCE: I need a user manual
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make model number) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount.
You could also try the manufacturer's web site direct ;-0)
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Many of our newer Indesit Washing Machines have a series of indicator lights, which flash to indicate a possible fault on your installation or simply to let you know a problem occurred whilst you were away from your Indesit Washing Machine.
Pre wash light flashing
Indicates a failure of your Indesit Washing Machine to fill correctly. Check your fill hoses for a blockage, a leak, a kink or to make sure that they are turned on.
Wash light flashing
Indicates that your programme dial has been moved from its original position. Simply returning the wash dial to its original position will restore the light to its original status.
Spin light flashing
Indicates that the Indesit Washing Machine has considered the wash load to be excessively un-balanced. Open up the door of the Indesit Washing Machine, re-distribute the garments and retry the spin to resolve this.
End light flashing
Indicates that the Indesit Washing Machine has reached the end of a wash programme.
Wash, rinse and spin lights all lit at the same time would indicate a possible blockage in your under sink wastes system. Check out the additional informationin our 'My Indesit Washing Machine Will Not Empty'

Many modern washing machines display error codes if they detect a fault, but not all washing machines display a readable error code, some indicate an error by flashing, or lighting some of the lights.
Hotpoint, Indesit, Zanussi error codes
Hotpoint, Indesit washing machines and Zanussi washing machines are some common appliances that display coded error codes. On their more expensive models, they display readable error codes but basic models (without digital displays) use flashing lights to convey the error fault code.
If your washing machine malfunctions and you can see some of the lights flashing, or one or more option lights have lit up, then make a note of which lights are flashing and which option lights are lit. NOTE: the error code list engineers have only shows the option lights by number and not by name. Therefore you need to report the lights as LED 1 and 3, or 2 and 4 etc. and NOT "delay timer" and "extra rinse". Count the lights from the left (or from the top if in a column) and report as "led 1 and 3" etc.
No Option lights?
With basic washing machines that have no option indicator lights, count the number of flashes. For example, the door locked indicator may flash 7 times, pause, and flash another 7 times in a constant cycle which would indicate error code 7.
This information is vital, and needs mentioning when reporting a fault.
