Question about Indesit W 123 Front Load Washer
Hi my washer (indesit) has a problem. When i put it on to wash the switch just goes around on its own without stopping. It lets in water and then when it gets to spin it just goes around
My machine started doing this mid-way through a wash cycle - at the drain/spin cycle.
The Indesit Manual stated this:
The programme selector knob keeps turning?
Wait a few minutes for the drain pump to empty the tub, switch the washer off, select one of the symbols stop/reset, then switch it back on. If the knob continues to turn call for assistance.
In my case this did nothing - the machine was full of water and the selector switch still kept turning. I followed the above procedure and the switch did indeed not move at the stop symbol. However I then tried setting it to drain, spin or a new wash cycle. Sometimes it would stay in place for a few minutes and then spin round continuously - other times it would just start turning around immediately.
As per the previous solution I had to manually drain the water via the filter (bottom right) and then spotted that some fine cotton had fouled around the green paddle at the back. I removed the cotton and then set the switch to a spin cycle and the machine worked again.

Hi I fixed the problem by removing the filter at the bottom right hand corner of the washing machine and removing 2 x £1 coins that had got stuck there
