You must check the continuity of the element , check the wiring to the thermostat and the control panel.

most likely cuase would be the inlet valve
you would need the complete model number to make sure you get the right part for that unit.

SOURCE: Indesit WIDL 106 wont start -ON/OFF-Door Led Flashes rapidly

It is a defectiv controller pcb. I think the eeprom on the controller pcb lost its program (happens often on Indesit machines).

The only solution I know is to change the controller pcb, - not a cheap solution.
I have the same problem with WIDL 106.

SOURCE: Water continues to run into

Hi Welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. You have debris inside your water inlet valve. You can try to clean it by doing the following:

- First remove both hoses from the water inlet valve and remove the inlet screens of the water valve.
(Use a knife blade on the outer part of the screens to remove them from the water valve)
- Connect both hoses to the water inlet valve without the inlet screens.
- Connect ONE hose to the wall faucet
- Place ONE hose in a bucket

SELECT WARM WASH and start wash fill

Water should flow into the washer and the bucket. Use the handle of a screwdriver and tap the hose connections of the inlet water valve for about 20 seconds. (your trying to free the debris from the inlet water valve diaphram)

Stop Fill

Reverse Hose connection at the wall.... i.e. hook up other hose and disconnect the one you had connected. Place the hose you disconnected from the wall into the bucket.

START warm fill

Water should flow into the washer and the bucket. Use the handle of a screwdriver and tap the hose connections of the inlet water valve for about 20 seconds. (your STILL trying to free the debris from the inlet water valve diaphrams)

STOP FILL

- Connect hose to wall connection
- WASH the inlet screens under slowly running water until both sides are clean
- Remove hoses from the water inlet valve and install the inlet screens.
- Reconnect hoses and turn on water supply

TEST HOT and COLD fill

Turn off machine.... IF the debris was freed the water flow will stop when the machine is turned off.

If this flushing attempt does not correct your constant water flow the remedy is to replace the water inlet valve on your washer.

I can help with locating parts ON-Line but will need your model number to help you should you require a water valve.

Hopefully you are able to clear the debris by doing the above. (50 - 50 chance of it working)

Thanks for Choosing FixYa,
Kelly

Changed the element in my bosch washing machine and still trips the electric ,can i wash on a cold wash without tripping the electric.


In the washing machine your hot water supply comes from your water heater. The element that is tripping is part of your electrical so no you cannot expect a different result. You will have to fix the problem first before you wash.

Dishwashers tend to get stuck on wash cycle if the water temperature is not reaching the level the wash program expects it to reach. This could be due to faulty heater or thermostat or both.

One test is to run the dishwasher on a rinse cycle (normal water temperature) and see if it completes it.
Refer this site for location and cost of heater and thermostat

Cold Fill Washing Machine Does Not Get Hot


Do y7ou have 2 hoses at the back of the machine one for cold water and one connected to the hot water tap of the house. If not then you have a cold water in only. If you have 2 hoses have you connected the hoses into the machine correctly Have you checked to see if your machine has a heating element under the bowl for heating the water. As an appliance shop to verify if you have by the model number of the machine. otherwise you have a cold washing machine and unless you can plumb hot water to it that is all you will have.

The soap powder in my washing machine is not getting dissolved. This is a front load A07-16 electronic model.


This will be due to one of three causes.
  1. You are using an incompatible wash powder for your machine. If you're in India (the WM A 0716 was an India-only model) then some of the cheapest domestic brands are really poor quality and some of the established major brands are counterfeit products.
  2. Most powders contain some insoluble components which should be rinsed out, so the rinse cycles are not working correctly. This can happen if the wash load is too big for the machine and fails to allow space for the rinse water to circulate, otherwise it's likely a machine fault.
  3. The wash cycle is too cold. You have either selected too low a temperature or the machine has a failed heating element.
If the machine is faulty then you will need to contact Siemens for repair.

I have a siemens waching machine model no wd11640hkbu. few days back when we were running a wash + dry cycle, while it was on the last 5 minutes of the dry cycle, there were loud banging noises and some...


Front laod washers have a heater element The siemens is mounted at the front of the drum Most likely the heater is burnt out and will need to be replaced. not a difficult problem. The heater has probably burnt itself into an open circuit situation and so the machine now still works. it may not work right through a cycle if temperature is selected other than cold.
You should not have to repalce the machine for the sake of a heater if tis is the case. Why not call knowlegable technician to ascertain this problem. For someone to assume the motor is burnt without looking is not thorough. The banging noise may have been the drum hitting against the burnt out heater element. Good luck

Hi everybody, I have a SpeedQueen Washing machine that does not complete the whole cycle while washing, it stops at the mid-cycle. What could be the cause? Thanks


It could be the heater element, if the wash water does not reach the temp selected by you within a certain time period, the w/m could abort the cycle.
The pump or outlet hoses could be blocked and the w/m cannot expel the waste water between rinses.( This would be if the machine stops and is still full of water). Try running a cold wash cycle and this should confirm if it is the element as it will complete the cycle ok.
Hope this help
