The door lock light flashing indicates that the door has not locked or not shut correctly,is the appliance is under 5 yrs old open the door and check the door catch,there are two gaps either side of the catch,if you look into the gaps you should see a metal pin,if the one at the bottom is not there then thats why the door wont catch,there are some screws around the door frame if you take them out and just pry apart the door frame by the catch you will see the pin at the top,push it down till you see it at the bottom gap,refit and test.

Try buttons "dry" & "spin" together for a few seconds. This is the child lock display.

Or press "end of cycle" for over 5 seconds.

Or press "options & select" till the light goes off.

Works for other machines..............And please rate me if helped

SOURCE: indesit washing machine will not drain and carry on with full cycle

Already posted previous comment. Thermistor measured resistance of c 30K ohms on meter - that seems OK. However one of the wires on to the thermistor plug looked faulty and came away when touched. Needed carefully soldered - it looks like a "punchable" connection eg BT phone socket but it ISNT <grin> Washer now working fine. (Had previously a broken front concrete block under warranty so drum shaking about more violently than usual due to that had obviously weakened this thermistor connection....)

SOURCE: Hi, we have an Indesit WIXL 143(UK)washing

This probably happens after the main wash has completed and it is just finishing the first rinse. It seems to be a warning that there is a partial blockage on the waste outflow. Empty the wash and use the DRAIN program to get as much water out as possible. From the FRONT of the machine open the lower flap and and then put a large towel on the floor. Unscrew the big black filter cover slowly - some water will come out -about a cupful. Ensuring the machine is turned off, use a cloth to remove any obvious build up of "gunk". Would suggest using an old toothbrush to clean off the surface and the plug.
99% of the time - Job Done!
You may have a blockage in your waste pipe. (If using an extension check any coupling has not "bunged up".
Last, check your waste pipe / grey water connection. Again, this "should" be fine, but it may be bunged up, especially if it feeds into the sink outflow.
Stick back together, plug in and use the 11, fast wash option in cold. Should now be happy, and you should hear water gurgling away noisily down the waste.
Always worth doing a 2 - 90 extra hot wash once in a while even EMPTY of washing just to "flush the system" now and again.
Hope this helps and saves you a £104 service engineer call from indesit :)

Flashing lights


There is a Light Flashing on my Indesit Washing Machine


Many of our newer Indesit Washing Machines have a series of indicator lights, which flash to indicate a possible fault on your installation or simply to let you know a problem occurred whilst you were away from your Indesit Washing Machine.


Pre wash light flashing
Indicates a failure of your Indesit Washing Machine to fill correctly. Check your fill hoses for a blockage, a leak, a kink or to make sure that they are turned on.

Wash light flashing
Indicates that your programme dial has been moved from its original position. Simply returning the wash dial to its original position will restore the light to its original status.

Spin light flashing
Indicates that the Indesit Washing Machine has considered the wash load to be excessively un-balanced. Open up the door of the Indesit Washing Machine, re-distribute the garments and retry the spin to resolve this.

End light flashing
Indicates that the Indesit Washing Machine has reached the end of a wash programme.

Wash, rinse and spin lights all lit at the same time would indicate a possible blockage in your under sink wastes system. Check out the additional informationin our 'My Indesit Washing Machine Will Not Empty'

Washing machine fault


Usually indicates door is not closed properly.
If it is shut securely, and still does not work, then you could have a faulty door lock.
Another possibility is the control unit could be faulty.

Indesit W123s - Hates Us


first thing to do is to make sure the washing machine is not siphoning. sometimes if a washing machine is bringing in water its all so draining it ,known in the trade as siphoning. the drain hose must be higher than the tub?? Unplug your washing machine from the wall socket for a minute or two and plug it back in to reset its micro. to me it sounds like a main board fault. I think you might find that it still maybe under warranty. ring a Indesit service agent and get some advice.
