Question about Indesit W 123 Front Load Washer
My 4 year old machine starts the cycle as usual, fills with water, does one spin of the drum and then the motor sounds but the drum stops spinning and lights flash continously and quickly on the machine. Not sure if it's relevant but the lights that flash are the on/off, stain removal and extra rinse buttons.

Check that the button isn't stuck it if not remove top lid and check the PCB and see if the switch hasn't collapsed causing it to be on all the time. Also if you hold in the go button for about 5 seconds this resets the program try this.

Check the filter which is under the white panel at the front of the machine(the filter is in the lower right hand corner). Unscrew the filter and remove it. Mine was blocked with loads of grease/limescale. I cleared it out and the machine is as good as new again. I cleared the system with half a packet of soda crystals put into the main drum (on its own without any washing in!) and did a wash at 90degrees. Its as good as new now. Good luck. CK

It appears your timer/main controller has failed in this instance.
For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...
FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.
PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.
If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.
Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.
If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

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'
