Question about Washing Machines

1 Answer

Wrecking our clothes!!!

Hi,
We've moved into a flat with a Indesit WIDL102 washer dryer - every time we come to wash clothes something gets knackered. I usually just wash on colour cotton 40C setting.
A few things that have happened are:

-red - brown stains on clothes
-shrinkage
-tablets didn't dissolve and had sticky detergent over clothes
-Obliterated my Pink Floyd Tshirt!! the print just washed off into tiny white bits!
-Colour runs into anything that isn't pure black.

Also i tried a white boil wash and it just kept ongoing - the thing was on for about 4 n half hours - had to manually stop it.

Pretty much all of the clothes have been washed before in other machines and no probs.
Is it broken or do we have to be very pedantic with what goes in it?
Any help will be much appreciated.

Thanks
Jim

Check the water temperature - it may be filling with HOT only.
If this is the case - replace the dual inlet water fill valve.

I have an indesit washer/dryer and have lost the instructions on how to use the dryer on its own. please advise. widl102


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but this forum does not supply manuals direct; it's just made up of ordinary guys and gals, probably at home, with experience of addressing problems ;-0)

You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount. During the process you will be asked for the actual model number!
Good luck,
John C

Ive got a Indesit WIDL102 washer dryer and it will wash but will not dry any longer. It goes through the cycle but the clothes come out wet. Any suggestions???


This problem is normally caused by either the thermostats not working properly or the heating element is the problem.
Both are normally located in the air tube of the dryer down stream of the blower.

Dryer geting to hot


When that happens it is usually because of a broken thermostat or a devective vent system, see : It overheats.

Indesit Washer/ Dryer 1200


A lot of times when people move they find their dryer has suddenly stopped working. Check the voltage at the outlet, make sure it matches the voltage on the i.d. plate on the appliance. I know people who didn't want to fuss with it and bought a new dryer only to find it did the same thing.

Dryer not working


If the drum is not moving: There is something stuck inside your furness blower( could be some pice of cloth). Open the furness and remove the piece and your dryer will be working fine afterwords. If the Drum is working fine; the coil valve, fuse or the gas ignitor could be the problem; usually repacing the coil valve will fix the problem
