Question about Indesit Washing Machines
I have aa wib111 indesit and I've taken the door off to replace the inner rim but I can't seem to get the hinge off. Do I need a special key thing, its more star shaped but won't fit a normal screwdriver
TORX is the screw type that you need a tool for. They come in different sizes.

this is no easy job and you will need a copy of the work-shop manual; sometimes they can be downloaded of the internet. There are no real specialist tools, but im telling you now there will be a lot of very red knuckles .good luck.adrian

SOURCE: Fit a new door hinge
Remove the wire clamp securing rubber seal to front of washer, pull seal of front of washer, this will give you clear access to tjhe door hinge, ondo the 2 screws securing the door hinge, remove door ,and seperate the 2 door halves by removing the screws securing it together
Replace with new hinge, fit back in reverse order.
Please rate my solution.

At first thought it was door lock mechanism was at fault but proved it to be ok - removed rubber 'boot' which on this model was on two stretchable spring retainers and checked operation of door lock.
Thought door hinges may have been bent so dismantled door, finding the problem to be the pin that the door latch pivots on had come out on one side so not lining up properly. This was easily pushed back into position.

It sounds as if one or more of the drum supports, which are springs or shock absorbers, have become detached or are in some way damaged. You would need to take the back and top off the machine to check this. Otherwise you will have to call a service engineer.
Alternatively, if this is a brand new machine, the reason is that the transportation fixings have not been removed. These are typically two or more steel rods that hold the drum in place, and have to be removed when the machine is installed, and before it is used, If they are not removed there is no damping of vibration as the drum is not free to move on its flexible supports.
