The pre wash light flashing is usually an indication that the washer has failed to take in cold water, possibly due to low pressure, or restricted inlet hose.
If it does it when it is the rinse mode, then I would suggest you check the filter is not blocked.
Remove lower rear panel, remove large black hose to bottom of tub
Remove filter inside and clean., check inlet to pump as well.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Why doesn't it go past the "pre-rinse" stage?


I would say that there's a very high probability that the heater in the machine has failed. It does the cold pre-rinse but when it gos to the next stage and tries to engage the water heater it detects an open circuit and faults out. You will find replacement heaters on eBay and probably videos on how to replace on YouTube

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'

I have a new caravan with a dometic front loader washing machine. In the manual it says you do not have to do pre wash but I cannot see anywhere to turn this off so as not to do it. I do not need to do...


Hi Debra from retired Englishman in SW France,

As the manual does not show you how to turn it off, it probably is not possible! Just do not waste detergent by putting any in the pre-wash compartment- presuming it has one? If it doesn't have a pre-wash compartment, it doesn't do pre-wash anyway ;-0)

If this has assisted and/or clarified the situation for you please consider a 4 thumbs up on our rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Miele W1926 check inlet light flashes at he end of rinse fill


Hi Yugin.That indicates your machines water inlet valve is faulty.(Means it's taking less water then normal)Please check this steps & do it fast before water inlet is finishes:1-Turn your machine on & run empty with pre-wash cycle first.2-Please ajar the detergent drawer & check runing water on compartment one 3-Please press pre-wash button & compare the running water volume on compartment two.If the running water volume 1 is less then 2 or vs.water valve needs to be replace.That's causing problem.I hope that helps.Thanks.

Pre wash not happening


poss blocked filter which also controls your pressure system, on your machine I believe if the prewash ligbt is flashing it would indicate a blockage there
