On the bottom of the machine there is a panel made of plastic that may be removed to expose the waste the waste filter and check that the waste pump is not blocked as in the initial start up the pump is run if there is a problem with the pump the machine will not advance.

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'

It flashes f o7 on my wie 127

hi sir, It seems that a common error code on Indesit washing machines is error code 7. This code can show itself as F 007 or with washing machines that have a rotating control dial the door lock light can flash in cycles of seven times.
This error code usually means, “heater relay stuck”.
The heater is switched on via a relay built into the main PCB. This relay is known to get jammed causing error code 7. In my experience this has usually meant a new PCB needed fitting and as the PCB comes without the main processor EEPROM chip one of those is needed also.
This repair is going to be expensive. I have heard anecdotally of engineers freeing off the jammed relay by giving it a firm tap. However, I would not expect such a repair to last as the chances are the relay would just get stuck again later on.
If a washing machine is still under the five-year parts warranty it would be cheaper to let the manufacture fit these parts but although the parts would be free the labour is going to be about £90.

kindly rate me..
thanks for using fixya..

My machine is 3 years old and used on average four times a week. It not worked hard as we work in offices, so no heavy overalls. Last saturday it stoped half way thru a washer cycle. The door remained...

Easy, scrapped it and purchased an Indesit. The cost to repair AEG was more than buying a new machine. I would suggest to anyone reading this never invest buying AEG unless you have a live in washing machine engineer.

I have an indesit WIE 137S. When the door is closed, teh red door lock light does not come on and the wash can't proceed. Any hep greatly appreciated

Have you checked your plug and the connections, also your socket.
If no joy, then door lock probably faulty.

Indesit wia 121 door lock keeps flashing and when put machine on it goes to a wash without turning dial to correct wash no.

these machines have a memory built into the pcb's which means that if they are switched off or there is a powercut etc they will just carry on from where they were in the cycle as soon as they next power up. if there is a black dot on the timer settings turn the dial to it then switch machine on and this should reset it for you after a few seconds. if this does not work count how many times the doorlock light flashes as this is a fault analysis code they will usually flas then pause for a second then flash again and repeat this sequence until a longer pause (3 seconds) then the sequence starts over.

hope this helps

Indesit WIE 147 - Display 'F-03' fault

Indesit washing machine error code 3 (F03) On certain Indesit washing machines, if the on off light is flashing 3 times, with a slight pause, followed by flashing a further 3 times, or if it is didplaying F03 you have an error code that is explained as follows -
NTC fault - check Thermistor and module connections.
The NTC is the thermistor, which is a modern-day thermostat. It’s inserted into a tube in the heating element and is filled with heat sensitive crystals that change their electrical resistance according to their temperature. By knowing what electrical resistance the crystals have at given temperatures they can tell the water temperature.
With this fault the NTC is either faulty, or there’s a dodgy connection to or from it or there’s a connection problem where it connects to the main PCB.
It’s not something you can easily fault find yourself unfortunately, apart from if there was an obvious broken wire.
