TORX is the screw type that you need a tool for. They come in different sizes.

SOURCE: indesit WIA 121 not working - door latch not shutting

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.

SOURCE: indesit WIB111 vibrates excessively on a spin

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.

Indesit wib111 leaking from pump


This that unscrews is a filter cover, it does have to come out and will be restricted by something thats blocking it, without being too forceful it will have to be removed so the "catch area" can be cleared of objects, like pins and maybe a sock, then the cover can be screwed back in and made secure to stop it leaking (engineer of 20 years experience)

Mmi have a ge advantiun x20 model SCA1001FSS01 THE HNDLE IS BROKEN OFF HOW DO i REPLACE THIS pafife@yahoo.com


HELLO.

THE SOLUTION ON HOW TO REPLACE THE BROKEN HANDLE

THINGS NEEDED.

Phillips screwdriver.
Thin, flat-head screwdriver.
Putty knife.
Replacement microwave door handle.

1 Examine the inside of the door. The handles of some early GE Spacemaker microwave models were attached after the two inner door panels were assembled to the outer door. If you see two recessed screws opposite the handle attaching points, undo them with a Phillips screwdriver and remove the handle. If not, go to the next step.

2 Insert the blade of a thin, flat-head screwdriver into the top, outer corner of the door, between the plastic inner frame and the outer door. Gently pry the inner frame out and slip a putty knife into the exposed opening on top of the door. Slide the putty knife toward the hinges to free the top of the inner frame; repeat on the front and bottom edges of the door and lift the inner frame out to expose a second metal inner frame.

3 Insert a thin, flat-head screwdriver into each of the small square openings on the top and bottom of the inner metal frame, starting at the handle end of the door. Undo the attaching clips by gently levering the inner door away, using the rim of the outer door as a fulcrum. Move the inner door away from the outer door on its hinges.

4 Remove the glass from the outer door. Undo the two screws holding the handle to the outer door with a Phillips screwdriver. Screw the replacement handle onto the door and tighten securely.

5 Replace the glass panel and reassemble the door by snapping the two inner frames back in place.

Thanks.

How do I remove outer door hinge housing to replace with new one?


there are four screws holding the hinge on to the machine. two are visible in the hinge from the front but there are two inside the machine on the left side .turn off the power and water supplies drag the machine out from its place tilt machine back to allow a gap between the drum and cabinet then using a star shaped driver also called a Torx driver remove the two screw from the hinge and remove it.when refitting a magnetic driver is a great help to prevent dropping the screws into the machine a torch is advisable to see what you are doing I hope this helps

Indesit WIA 121 washing machine, front loader. The door lock led is continuessly flashing red even when the programme has stopped and the door is opened. I have to switch off at the main plug. Machine is...


One of the main problems with Indesit front loaders ( apart from replacing the door interlock switch) is

If the door will not close and click in the lock, then take the door off with a tork screwdriver and take the screws of the inner plastic off the door (make sure you do this on a flat surface) and gently prize off the inner plasic by running round a flat head screwdriver..
Once you have taken off the door and glass bowel - check out the door catch to see if a metal rod has come out of its housing holding the catch and spring in place and refit or replace.
I have come across many door catches like this.
