Re: Indesit WIE167 washing mashine
Remove the rear panel of the washer.
You will see the heater element at the rear of the drum,it has 2 wires going to it.
The thermistor as it is called is located at the end of the element,, unplug the connector on the thermistor. and pull the old one out, refit new thermistor, and connector.
Plz rate my solution.

You need to loosen the motor fitting or the pulley settings so that the belt can be place over the groove of the pullery and pushed forward so that it will fall into place.
If you use a small lever to wedge it will be easier to push it on to the pulley .
Place one end to the pulley and push forward.
Hi, and welcome to Fixya.
F03 is indicating that the wash thermistor is open or short circuit.
The thermistor is part of the water heating circuit,so the only thing you can do is to test the heating element for continuity or an earth fault..If faulty, replace.
If it is o/k then you will have to call an engineer.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks, And a merry xmas.
Error code f03 relates to the thermistor on the heating element.
This can be a faulty thermistor or bad contact between it and the control board.
Worst case scenario is a fault with the board which would mean a replacement.
Hope this helps & thanks for using Fixya
Indesit washing machine error code 3 (F03)
On certain Indesit washing machines, if the on off light is flashing 3 times, with a slight pause, followed by flashing a further 3 times, or if it is didplaying F03 you have an error code that is explained as follows - NTC fault - check Thermistor and module connections.
The NTC is the thermistor, which is a modern-day thermostat. It’s inserted into a tube in the heating element and is filled with heat sensitive crystals that change their electrical resistance according to their temperature. By knowing what electrical resistance the crystals have at given temperatures they can tell the water temperature.
With this fault the NTC is either faulty, or there’s a dodgy connection to or from it or there’s a connection problem where it connects to the main PCB.
It’s not something you can easily fault find yourself unfortunately, apart from if there was an obvious broken wire.
