SOURCE: wf340 hotpoint washer

it will be to do with the pressure switch it may be faulty, but more often than not there is a blockage in the pressure chamber which is located at the bottom of the outer drum, check the chamber and the tube that goes up to the pressure switch to see if they are blocked if they are clear of obstruction then test the pressure switch,to do this unclip the pressure switch from the side of the machine but dont take the wires off once off pull the tube off that goes down to the pressure chamber once off blow in to the nossle on the pressure switch, you should hear it click and then when you release it should click again, if it doet click twice then that is your problem, hope that helps.

poss blocked filter which also controls your pressure system, on your machine I believe if the prewash ligbt is flashing it would indicate a blockage there

SOURCE: washing machine not working

This normally indicates one of two problems.

1), the overflow pipe that goes into the sump is blocked and needs unblocking. (make sure that you have a bucket and towels at hand)
2) the carbon brushes in the motor have worn down. If the motor is on top of the machine which I believe it is on this model they are fairly cheap and easy to replace. Most washine machine repair shops sell these as spare parts.

I hope this helps

SOURCE: No drum movement during wash/spin cycle, although it fills/drains

brushes need replacing in motor. Usually cheap enough to buy and do yourself.

My zanussi zwg 6141p washing machine is calling water at start of cycle but is not going into drawer to swill out detergent , is also stopping half way with the green light on the start button flashin


Some appliances malfunction can be displayed in hexadecimal or in binary code.
So your device is defective and shows you what's wrong. You have to count how many times flashes red light and how many times flashes green light. Red light shows the first error number and green light the second error number.
For example: you forgot to close the door and you started washing machine. After some time (timeout) will generate an alarm. Four times will flash red light and once the green light which means error code " E41 " or "Open door"
" E20 " means "No drain water"
" E10 " means "No fill up water"

Not enough water supply F8E1 in a front load washer


Long fill error code if you have flood safe water hoses replace with regular hoses, this may sound stupid but I have seen this in the field make sure water is turned on, other possible reasons bad inlet valve or no power to valve from control, front load washers are notorious for rubbing a hole in the tube that goes to the pressure switch this switch is what tells the control to output power to the inlet valve also make sure the drain hose hasn't fallen to the floor. Quickest way to eliminate some things start with an empty washer after door locks unlocks and locks again the basket will rotate a few times then water should enter the machine fill to a level in the the basket that is barely above the bottom holes in the bottom then stop this eliminates control and inlet valve , if unit continues to fill and you get water half way up the door glass probably a hole in pressure switch tube I very seldom see a pressure switch go bad hopes this helps.

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'

Hi Yugin.That indicates your machines water inlet valve is faulty.(Means it's taking less water then normal)Please check this steps & do it fast before water inlet is finishes:1-Turn your machine on & run empty with pre-wash cycle first.2-Please ajar the detergent drawer & check runing water on compartment one 3-Please press pre-wash button & compare the running water volume on compartment two.If the running water volume 1 is less then 2 or vs.water valve needs to be replace.That's causing problem.I hope that helps.Thanks.

Dishlex Global 300 - stopping mid cycle


This problem is common to both the 300 & 310 models. The flashing Fast light indicates a blockage in the water supply. I fixed this by:
- disconnecting the dishwasher
- checking for blockages in the input hose filter (there were none)
- removing the bottom of the dishwasher (two screws at the front)
- looking for the translucent plastic bucket thing attached to the side of the main assembly
- unclipping it from the main assembly and removing the white hose attached to it
- flushing 5 years worth of evil gunk down the sink (you need a small brush or piece of wire to get it out
