    but even if I put it on the hottest setting it doesn't seem to get things clean. It doesn't dissolve the washing powder which is why I think it isn't heating the water up on the hot settings.

I had thi problem.I removed the heater element but there was nothing wrong with it when tested .Do not do this as it is hard to get element back in
What I done was remove the top of machine and pulled connector of temperature knob It was corroded.I sprayed the connection with WD40and shoved it on and off a couple of times and hey presto it worked .Themachine is heating again

DOES MY WIXL143S INDESIT USE HOT OR COLD MAINS


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

That's easy to tell- if it has 2 inlet pipe/hose connections at the back (as opposed to the outlet pipe which is permanently connected to the washer and hooks over the outlet drain) then it is a hot and cold fill. If there is only one inlet pipe it is cold fill only. Either type HAS to have a cold fill supply- to lower the temperature of the hot water for cool washes AND for rinsing which is normally cold water only.

If you have only a cold water tap/fawcet available for the washer and it is a hot and cold fill you will need to purchase, from a hardware (?) store, a 'Y' adapter. Upside down the single end (internal thread) screws into the cold water supply and the hot and cold washer pipes screw into the double end (external threads). The washer is fooled into thinking it has hot and cold! When it expects hot, it opens its hot valve but instead gets the cold water and has to heat it up. It will therefore take longer for the machine to do the washing. When it wants cold for rinses, it opens its cold valve and gets the same water! Simple ;-0)

Hope this has clarified!

My Inglis washer machine (#111-07) which we bought 2 weeks ago, doesn't use any hot water when set to the warm cycle (in between cold and hot), so i can only wash with entirely cold or superhot water...


Hi Elllie602 (!) from retired Englishman in SW France,

2 weeks old? Under guarantee/warantee? Get in touch with the vendor/shop!!!
Even if it takes only cold water for the warm wash (which is a bit daft- normally washers mix the hot and cold accordingly) and heats it, that is not how most hot n' cold washers work.

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

My WD 12X machine is not drying the clothes. They get hot but not dry. Is there a filter somewhere that needs to be cleaned?


Presuming that this is an Indesit WD12X.

Yes, there is a filter at the bottom left of the machine (It can be clearly seen in the illistration on Page 14 of the manual, figure 6).

If you don't have a manual, you can download a PDF of it here:
http://www.indesit.co.uk/indesit/_pdf/manuals/19503326500_UK-USA-AUS.pdf

It's highly likely that the water isn't getting evacuated because the filter is blocked and so there is just too much water to dry. Unscrew the filter, clean and replace. I'm amazed to discover that (so far as I can see) The manual never even mentions the filter! Well done Indesit

Does the Indesit model No W113 have to have hot and cold water intake or can I blank off the hot water intake?


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
In two words- NO and NO! No, you need it to be cold fill only (presumably) and No, you do not need to blank off the hot water intake.
You will need to purchase, from a hardware (?) store, a 'Y' adapter. Upside down the single end screws onto the cold water supply and the hot and cold was pipes from the washer screw onto the double end. The washer is fooled into thinking it has hot and cold! When it expects hot, it opens its hot valve but instead gets the cold water and has to heat it up. It will therefore take longer for the machine to do the washing. When it wants cold for rinses, it opens its cold valve and gets the same water! Simple ;-0)

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.

Hot/cold feed


you can have just cold but you will need to have both hoses, (presuming it's hot and cold fed washer), connected to the water otherwise the machine will be waiting for the water to flow that isn't there. you can buy 'y-shaped' adaptors for this purpose.
the water is heated inside the machine to correct temp anyway.

Yes, they are easy enough to replace, but you need to test them with a multimeter to see if they are faulty..
There could be other things wrong.

How do I fit a new belt on my Indesit Wil 113 washing machine?


I think its a 'front Loader'? Take the back panel off, to expose the main drive belt & pulley. When fitting the new belt it needs stretching by first putting it around the motor drive shaft & easing on to the main pulley whilst gradually rotatng the pulley. You need to finish up with the belt in the centre of both of the pulleys if possible
