SOURCE: Trouble with Indesit WI 102 washing machine

I had trhe same problem and was going deaf!!! I know this is probably too late for your machine but it may be usefull to someone else with this model.

Originally thought the bearings had gone but had great trouble trying to source some through UK websites so decided to strip the machine. Did this by touch (no manual!) and eventually found that the bolts holding the bottom weight to the drum had all come loose (all 3!). Trying to access them to tighten was the biggest problem as the front of the machine is welded on.

Managed the above by removing the rubber door seal from the door only and tightening two of the bolts from inside the door. The third I managed to access from beneath the machine. All were tightened using 10mm socket on a bar with extension (curtain pole!) slid over the end.

During this process I had the machine on its side, removed the securing brackets, top weight + springs and wedged the drum from beneath and the side as much towards the rear of the machine as possible to aid access.

Good Luck!

SOURCE: how do i take the

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Probably with a struggle like I had when we borrowed our daughter's Indesit!!

The catch on her Indesit is effected by a couple of triangular 'teeth' which catch against the lower lip of the dispenser frame. The way I managed was to actually look underneath as I was pulling the dispenser out and then pushed the tray upwards where the teeth are, one at a time so that each cleared the lip. Not easy ;-0)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

SOURCE: Indesit iwc6145 washing machine all lights flashed now not spinning or draining??

see the causes and fix it. God bless you

Drain Pump Filter
This is the most common problem. Some have a small cover in the lower front put a screwdriver in the hole and turn counterclockwise to remove. There will be a cover to remove, water will come out so be prepared with a towel or wet vac. Clean this out. Other Machines will need to access the drain pump to get to the filter. This can be done by removing the back panel on some washers. On others you will need to remove the lower panel or complete front panel depending on model. The filter is located inside the large hose from the tub to the pump. Remove the hose and clean filter.

Drain Pump
The drain pump may have failed. If you hear it making noises you will need to remove the drain pump and check for obstructions, broken impeller, or not spinning freely. Remove obstructions if it does not spin freely replace the drain pump. If you hear it hum replace the pump if nothing is found inside. If no noise is heard check the pump for power. To do this remove the wire connectors and connect a voltmeter turn to a drain cycle, refer to tech sheet or service manual for proper voltage reading, usually any voltage would probally indicate a faulty pump. If no voltage to the pump replace the main control board.

Hoses
Check the hoses from the pump by disconnecting them and make sure there are no obstructions. Check your hoes drain, if it is a slow drain this can cause your washer to not properly drain.

Washing machine internal drum is loose on the inside and there is nothing loose. what would you say the problem was?


It is going to be 1 of 2 things.

1-- Main drum bearing failure.
2-Drum shaft collapsed or fractured.
Either way, it involves a complete strip down of washer to determine the problem.

How do you replace the belt on an indesit moon washing machine? I have managed to take off the belt fromt he motor and the drum, but trying to get the replacement band back on it very hard - if it just...


Hello,
Most belts for washing machines are of the stretch type and they will take a lot of force to get on.Try to put on motor pulley first the try on drum pulley one side or other whichever feels easiest as you start it on pulley start turning drum pulley whilst holding the belt to stop it slipping,keep turning until it goes on then line up to centre of drum pulley.

Hope thet helps.

My 6 yr old Kitchen Aid dishwasher is leaving food residue


After checking all sprayer arms for clearance, and checking heating element and discharge pump, the problem was solved by replacing the small sprayer arm at the top of the washer. This small arm had popped off some time ago - obviously the water pressure was excessive for the small and unimpressive fastener. Luckily we had saved this piece, which I refastened with a strong aluminum non-corroding small bolt. Presto - now the water distribution is back to design specs, with sufficient water coming out under pressure from the mid level arm. Lesson: always look for the simplest cause first with the simplest solution. TCA

Wixl163 8 months old plasyic lifters have broken off checked other models how often will i have to replace these ive never had a machine that the lifters arent part of the drum


The drum lifters usually come loose or break because of foreign objects inside drum, normally they should last a long time..If you remove one by grasping firmly,and giving it a firm tug towards you, it will come out, and you can feel inside the gap for any thing in the bottom of drum..
To fit back, line the lifter up inside the slot and push firmly towards rear of drum ,if you have got it right, you will feel it click firmly into place, make sure you get it the right way round, and make sure you have the correct one, as there is more than 1 version of lifters.

Please rate my fixya solution.
Thanks.
