Re: indesit machine won't start

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..

How do I open the pump access on my Indesit WIE 147,

hi there. its likely that there are coins etc in the pump filter,which causes the filter to jam.usually a little persuasion and patience will give you access.try fast left and right turns ,with the emphasis on anti clockwise.otherwise you may need to strip down the pump.patience usully works though!
hope this helps!steve

Indesit w93 washing machine fills with water but doesn't start washing

Hi there. I have an old model, the indesit WM12. Never counted the flashing light (yours was 10) but my dial started clicking constantly at the drain part. I called Idesit and they told me it was a blockage in the filter.
The filter they speak of it located, on mine, at the front of the machine at the very bottom on the right. It is a black dial about 3 - 4 inches in diameter. Unscrew that anti-clockwise (a real pain because so much water comes out. My wife and I unscrewed it, filled a baking tray with water, screwed it back up, emptied / substituted tray then same all over again - until empty. Though putting it on drain again and again helped at same time). When I pulled out the filter found a 'colour catcher' sheet in it. We used them first time ever the other day. Removed that, gave filter a wee clean and, hey presto, all is working again. Hope that helps. Jim

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.
