Question about Indesit W 123 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Indesit Washing Machine not proceedding with the cycle programme after filling with water.

Hey there, my Indesit WIL123 machine fills with water at the start then just clicks and does not proceed with its washing cycle. You can still hear the motor spinning as if the drum is going around and it' doesn't. It does however spin properly only if you move the dial manually to the spin sign. I have cleaned the filter at the bottom front of the machine but that didn't sort it out either. I would value your help. Cheers Baltazarsam

Cant understand how the machine will revolve on the 'spin cycle' & yet you can hear the motor on the 'wash cycle' but yet it doesnt revolve!!
Nomally if the water fills, & the tub revolves without the programmer advancing, its because the heater is not working. ie faulty thermostat, heat element, or maybe a wire burned off in the 'heater circuit'. Check if you have 240 volts at both ends of the heat element, with a meter or 240 volt bulb
                         !! BE CAREFUL OF 240VOLTS!!

Bosch washing machine fills with water throughout any cycle

Just a guess but could the fill valve be defective, not shutting off completely when it should?

Flashing lights

There is a Light Flashing on my Indesit Washing Machine

Many of our newer Indesit Washing Machines have a series of indicator lights, which flash to indicate a possible fault on your installation or simply to let you know a problem occurred whilst you were away from your Indesit Washing Machine.

Pre wash light flashing
Indicates a failure of your Indesit Washing Machine to fill correctly. Check your fill hoses for a blockage, a leak, a kink or to make sure that they are turned on.

Wash light flashing
Indicates that your programme dial has been moved from its original position. Simply returning the wash dial to its original position will restore the light to its original status.

Spin light flashing
Indicates that the Indesit Washing Machine has considered the wash load to be excessively un-balanced. Open up the door of the Indesit Washing Machine, re-distribute the garments and retry the spin to resolve this.

End light flashing
Indicates that the Indesit Washing Machine has reached the end of a wash programme.

Wash, rinse and spin lights all lit at the same time would indicate a possible blockage in your under sink wastes system. Check out the additional informationin our 'My Indesit Washing Machine Will Not Empty'

Indesit WIXL85 water level

On a normal wash cycle, you will see very little if any water sloshing around, this is quite normal on todays washers.
You shuold see a lot more on the rinse cycle, as it is a higher fill.
It is usual to more less fill the compartment with powder, unless you are only washing a few items, then half fill it.
Hope this helps.

Washing Machine

the main water valve that the fill hoses connect too in the back of the washer is probably bad.

Washing machine fills with water when not in use.

You have an open solenoid on your water valve where the fill hoses connect. Change the water valve and you should be good.

Drum filling up

Could be anything, Programmer, Pressure switch, etc.. Depending on age of machine. If more than a few years old I would check to see if the pressure switch tube, or reservoir, is blocked with powder or gunge. Tom.
