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

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

This is symptomatic of an intermittent water control valve- sticks open too long or permanently open.
It needs replacing- service call ;-0(
Good luck,

Dial keeps rotating


This a common problem with Indesit washers..
It is not a timer but a programme selector switch.
What you need to do is the following.
Switch the m/c on, let the drain pump empty the water, then switch the m/c off.
set the selector switch to one of the black dots on the dial, which is stop/reset.
Then switch washer back on, if the dial still keeps going round and round, then you are going to have to call an engineer, as you have what is called an Anomaly (fault).
Plz leave feedback for this solution.
Thanks

We have a indesit wil 143s faulty


the pressure switch should be easy to replace. it will be a round unit with wires going into it and also a small clear plastic tube attached. it is usually mounted around the top edge of the case. i would also check that the pressure system is not blocked (the other end of that clear plastic tube) as blockages may keep pressure at the switch leaving it in the "full position" pop the pressure tube off of the switch and force some air down the tube to check.tony.
