It appears your main controller/ timer has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.




Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question

My zanussi zwg 6141p washing machine is calling water at start of cycle but is not going into drawer to swill out detergent , is also stopping half way with the green light on the start button flashin


Some appliances malfunction can be displayed in hexadecimal or in binary code.
So your device is defective and shows you what's wrong. You have to count how many times flashes red light and how many times flashes green light. Red light shows the first error number and green light the second error number.
For example: you forgot to close the door and you started washing machine. After some time (timeout) will generate an alarm. Four times will flash red light and once the green light which means error code " E41 " or "Open door"
" E20 " means "No drain water"
" E10 " means "No fill up water"

Indesit Washing machine WIL88 red light flashing


Seems that the main board or the processor is hanging up and does not take up the full process control. You need to remove the panel and check for moisture on the board, check for loose connectors. If this seems fine the fault seems related to the board and can be confirmed with a board swap before one can be ordered. Check the door switch and wiring to the main board.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
There is likely to be a problem with either the door solenoid/lock or the 'door closed' sensor requiring a service engineer's attention I suggest ;-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!

Red light about door icon flashing


Sounds like a door lock problem. May just be a weak spring in the door handle which helps push the door lock pin against the contacts in the door lock switch. If you open the door and push on the pin or operate the handle the pin should return positively to its closed position, if very weak return then spring wants replacing. Take door apart to gain access to handle and spring and replace spring if broken.

Wff220 will not start when door closed - lights up briefly


If you press and hold the door and the lights come on, then I syspect that the door catch or spring may be broken.
If it has a start/pause, try that.
Hope this helps.
