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