Switch off machine for an hour, press down all the panel buttons to drain any residual voltage to the board. Now when the power is reconnected and the machine is switched on, press down Start/Stop/Pause buttons.
If the fault does not clear, then check for dirt in the inlet and outlet , check flow and drain without water accumulating within. If not the control board is a suspect

I had the same problem. The machine would wash but not drain and the time savers button would blink. Turned out to an eye from a teddy blocking the pipe that enters the drain. I hope this helps.

I've just had exactly the same problem with the same model. Unlikely as it may sound, it's the heating element. Mine has just been replaced and everything is now working perfectly.

How do I turn off the time saver option?


You should just be able to press the button. Has the machine stopped working with the START light flashing and the time saver light on? If so, this is an error code indicating a motor fault. Please describe any other lights that are on and if they are flashing or solid

Will not complete wash cycle.when emptying first fill pump continues long after water is out then spin light and timer saver lights start flashing


It is taking too long to drain. This could be from plugged filters bue to debris or from a piece of clothing. If this is a front load machine, you can take the front kick panel off. Then you can see the drain plug and unscrew it to clean it out. Be advised that if you do this, you will get all the water that is left in the machine coming out through this opening. Get ready for it with a wet and dry vacuum etc. If this is a top loader you can still do the same thing, the problem is that you have to tip the machine to get to the filter.

Hi i have an indesit w 123s washing machine, that set to any program it doesnt move on it just does that setting,then if you turn the machine off and set it to end program you can reset to rinse and the...


hello try restting it before you bin it
  1. Turn the washing machine off with the on off button.
  2. Turn the selector knob to a dot, or any off position
  3. Turn the washing machine back on and watch for rapid flashing on the neon light
  4. Turn the washing machine off and select the new program (or maybe spin)
  5. Turn it back on and the new program should start
NOTE: Resetting the timer selector knob as shown above may stop the clicking round, but if your washing machine has a fault, the clicking round may return when your washing machine encounters the fault again. If your washing machine's program selector knob is clicking round on its own, then read the section above Washing machine stops with lights flashing hope it helps

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

I'm interested in how you manage to drain the water away- is it by the filter cover? If not may I suggest carrying out the following- if you have not done so already ;-0)
(If you have -sorry. This will not help)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

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!!!

Water wont drain from Machine or go onto spin cycle


either the level control switch has become blocked or faulty or the drain pump has become stuck.

disconnect from the mains and gain access to the rear look for a circular unit with two or three electrical connections and a plastic tube. this is the level control.follow the tube to its start and you will find a plastic connection that goes into the wash drum, remove the plastic tube from the switch end and blow into it. if there is no restistance then the system is OK at the drum end. next reconnect the tube to the switch and remove the opposite end, very gently blow down the tube and you should hear the switch operate. Test wether the switch is working by putting a meter across the switch and blow into the tube. if all of this is OK then the drain pump is at fault. locate the drain pump. it is connected to the outlet tube, try turning by hand. if it does not rotate smoothly remove the clips holding the pump body together and clear the obstruction.
