My indesit iwc6145 front load washing machine isnt draining, there is power and ive checked there is no blockage (i drained the machine manually) what can i do?

My indesit iwc6145 ive checked the lines and i,ve drain the drum by manually squeezing the black hose attached to the drum and that runs though fine so there is no blockage, there is power to the machine and a wash cycle will start but when it gets to the drain part it stops the machine makes a very quite humming noise and then after about 5/10 mins all the lights start flashing. is this a common problem? i,ve only had the machine for a yr and a half.

SOURCE: frigidaire front washer has power but won't fill up, drain or go through correct cycles

You'll very likely have something caught in your drain pump. First set the washer to drain and spin. If you hear a hum or grinding noise and the water in the tub isn't draining or it's draining slowly you have something in the pump. If you take the rear panel off you'll reveal the drain pump at the right front corner or maybe middle on this model. if you empty all the water from your machine you can take off the spring clamp (this can be tricky) attaching the thick rubber hose from your tub to your drain pump. (you may want to have some old towels ready) With this off you can feel around for what's blocking the drain pump's impeller. You may want to take the screws out that secure the drain pump to the base and the other spring clamp that attaches the drain hose to the drain pump. Good luck!

SOURCE: Kenmore front-load washer stops at rinse cycle

When the washer initially fills for the wash, is it only hot water entering the drum? Try switching the water temperature between hot and cold as it fills. If any of them show little or no water getting through, it sounds too easy but check to make sure water supply taps are on, and that the cold/hot fill hoses aren't reversed. Remove the fill hoses and check any of the screen filters for blockage (in the hoses and in the inlet water valve). When the machine stops and waits to fill but all you hear is a hum, it sounds like there is power going to the valve but water is not able to get through it.
Good luck!

SOURCE: washing machine is not draining and lights keep

It is likely that the pump/filter has blocked thus preventing the water pumping out.

You would need to check and if so unblock it. The location of the pump/filter varies with the brand but sometimes it is behind a flap at the lower front of the machine whilst on others you have to get the back off to locate it.

Indesit iwc6145 washing machine all lights flashed now not spinning or draining??


see the causes and fix it. God bless you

Drain Pump Filter
This is the most common problem. Some have a small cover in the lower front put a screwdriver in the hole and turn counterclockwise to remove. There will be a cover to remove, water will come out so be prepared with a towel or wet vac. Clean this out. Other Machines will need to access the drain pump to get to the filter. This can be done by removing the back panel on some washers. On others you will need to remove the lower panel or complete front panel depending on model. The filter is located inside the large hose from the tub to the pump. Remove the hose and clean filter.

Drain Pump
The drain pump may have failed. If you hear it making noises you will need to remove the drain pump and check for obstructions, broken impeller, or not spinning freely. Remove obstructions if it does not spin freely replace the drain pump. If you hear it hum replace the pump if nothing is found inside. If no noise is heard check the pump for power. To do this remove the wire connectors and connect a voltmeter turn to a drain cycle, refer to tech sheet or service manual for proper voltage reading, usually any voltage would probally indicate a faulty pump. If no voltage to the pump replace the main control board.

Hoses
Check the hoses from the pump by disconnecting them and make sure there are no obstructions. Check your hoes drain, if it is a slow drain this can cause your washer to not properly drain.

I have an Indesit WIXL123 washing machine that wont drain! Have checked all pipes, no blockage, have replaced pump but it still refuses to work! Any ideas?


Since I have never physically worked on a Indesit, I can only tell you what a normal washing machince diagnosis would be: Drain pump is not functioning. Possibly something clogging the intake (count you socks) or just stopped working.

My supplier does not have Indesit parts so can't give you the part number for the drain pump.

When the washing machine is draining it starts to make a grinding noise


Hi.

Access the drain filter and check for foreign objects in there. In this model the access for the drain filter should be located at the front bottom of the machine, behind a trim. Other models have the access at the back. Disconnect power, locate access, remove cap, collect water using a container and check for blockage or foreign objects in there.

Regards.

A load of wash got "stuck" at 22 minutes left on the wash cycle. I turned off the machine. I turned it back on. Now the door is locked. How can I unlock the door and restart the machine?


Try starting a cycle and then cancelling it. Could also be problem draining. Check pump filter. I have had this twice on my indesit washing machine. You have to take the front cover off the bottom and then unscrew the filter to check it. Be careful as it will gush with water if the drum isn't drained.
Check the drain pipe for blockage by disconnecting far end of it and lowering to floor level (in a bowl). If no blockage then water should drain out of the drum by gravity.

My washing machine wont drain, so the rinse and spin cycle cannot activate. Please help. Thanks


Hi.

Check drain hose at the back, then access drain pump filter and remove eventual blockage. If that does not fix the problem, a common fault is the pressure switck, try blowing in tube and removing soap.
