Question about Washing Machines
Hi, I have Indesit Widl146 washer-dryer. It has started playing out recently. It is basically constantly washing and never moves to rinse and spin function when set for any of the programs 1-13. No lights are flashing. It would simply work indefinitely if you had not manually stop it. At the same time when you start it at rinse function on the programmer it will rinse and subsequently spin if for you with no problems. Do you know what the problem is and how it could be fixed please? Many thanks
Firstly look to check nothing is stuck in the pipes as in coins or wire from bras etc..these will always cause problems for the machines... if this isnt the problem it may be a fuse. Or worst case senario one of the boards needs replacing.

Switch on machine and start its program. While it is running then turn program selector control to TOP position. After a few seconds ALL lights should flash and machine should stop. It ought now to have been reset to normal.

It is a defectiv controller pcb. I think the eeprom on the controller pcb lost its program (happens often on Indesit machines).
The only solution I know is to change the controller pcb, - not a cheap solution.
I have the same problem with WIDL 106.

It appears your timer/main controller/CCU 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.
Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question!!!!
