Suggestion: Possible your outlet filter is blocked; this needs periodic cleaning, depending on your usage. Clean this out and re-fit. Refer to your users' manual re. where the filter is....

SOURCE: indesit w93 washing machine fills with water but doesn't start washing

Hi there. I have an old model, the indesit WM12. Never counted the flashing light (yours was 10) but my dial started clicking constantly at the drain part. I called Idesit and they told me it was a blockage in the filter.
The filter they speak of it located, on mine, at the front of the machine at the very bottom on the right. It is a black dial about 3 - 4 inches in diameter. Unscrew that anti-clockwise (a real pain because so much water comes out. My wife and I unscrewed it, filled a baking tray with water, screwed it back up, emptied / substituted tray then same all over again - until empty. Though putting it on drain again and again helped at same time). When I pulled out the filter found a 'colour catcher' sheet in it. We used them first time ever the other day. Removed that, gave filter a wee clean and, hey presto, all is working again. Hope that helps. Jim

SOURCE: indesit washing machine will not drain and carry on with full cycle

Already posted previous comment. Thermistor measured resistance of c 30K ohms on meter - that seems OK. However one of the wires on to the thermistor plug looked faulty and came away when touched. Needed carefully soldered - it looks like a "punchable" connection eg BT phone socket but it ISNT <grin> Washer now working fine. (Had previously a broken front concrete block under warranty so drum shaking about more violently than usual due to that had obviously weakened this thermistor connection....)

SOURCE: washing machine is not draining and lights keep

It is likely that the pump/filter has blocked thus preventing the water pumping out.

You would need to check and if so unblock it. The location of the pump/filter varies with the brand but sometimes it is behind a flap at the lower front of the machine whilst on others you have to get the back off to locate it.

SOURCE: Kenmore washing machine spin cycle is not working

It appears your timer/controller or pressure switch 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.

Washer control humming


it's always worth replacing the brushes - pattern one's are cheap at around 20 quid so it's just about the cheapest thing to try and washing machines do all mannor of crazy things you wouldn't think were related - like not draining (the water does still drain out but when it hasn't spun properly the clothes are still full of water for instance) worn brushes have a differing effect on difrent washing cycles. the other thing to suspect is the controller -but these are so expensive you can nearly always buy a cheap washing machine for less

Indesit wil 153 door red led is flashing after I set washer settings, doesn't start cycle ?


The flashing light means that the machine thinks the door is not closed (The door lock switch is not activating). 99% of the time this is simply a sticky switch and the solution is to give the door a good firm slam shut (Don't get silly here, but it will take a pretty good "teenager slamming the bedroom door in a temper tantrum" type slam).

In the event that this doesn't work, then you're looking at a faulty door interlock switch. They're not that hard to obtain or fit if you're fairly confident. Drop me a comment back here and let me know how you get on. Happy to help further if the above hasn't allowed you to solve the problem.

Won't finish cycle, keeps working, no spinning/draining


If the timer went bad then there is going to be no way to just select spin cycle. The timer will need to be replaced first before this can be done. Sorry for the bad news

Indesit IDL 50 Dishwasher


Had a similar problem (flashing lights 1 and 2). Drained the machine by diconnecting the outlet hose and using a shallow bowl on the floor. Removed and cleaned filters. Forced clean water through by using a garden hose pipe(you can only do this one way, you cannot force water down the outlet pipe). Removed and cleaned the pump (you have to do this from under the machine but easy enough). Finally ensuring the waste trap under the sink was clear. Bingo!! No parts, no expensive engineer.
