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,

If the water continues to run into the washer after switching it off, then the water inlet valve is sticking, and needs to be replaced, this is the valve where the hose(s) connect to.
If it stops running in when you turn the washer off, then it is the water level switch that is not working.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

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

Indesit w123s on daily wash program no8 it starts to fill stops and emptys then starts clicking around on the selector knob the only way to reset it is to switch off and leave for a few minutes all the...


you need to open up the small door where the filter is and clear it out. Mine does this everytime my son puts his trousers in the wash and forgets to empty the pockets! we've had all sorts, elastic bands, wrappers, and money. Usually the machine still has water in it as the filter is blocked it won't continue the programme until this is clear and thats why the continuous clicking happens.
