The door lock flashes constantly - Indesit WIA101

Somebody used the washing machine wrong way and now all the time the door lock flashes constantly.
Additionally i dont need to set the program every time i want to do the washing cause there is already program set, i just put clothes inside, close the door and press start.

I restated washing machine few times, unplugged it and nothing works.
It is not a big problem but this light is playing my nerves, please help with the advice what to do!

Re: The door lock flashes constantly - Indesit WIA101

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.

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'

Washing machine fault

Usually indicates door is not closed properly.
If it is shut securely, and still does not work, then you could have a faulty door lock.
Another possibility is the control unit could be faulty.

Indesit W123s - Hates Us

first thing to do is to make sure the washing machine is not siphoning. sometimes if a washing machine is bringing in water its all so draining it ,known in the trade as siphoning. the drain hose must be higher than the tub?? Unplug your washing machine from the wall socket for a minute or two and plug it back in to reset its micro. to me it sounds like a main board fault. I think you might find that it still maybe under warranty. ring a Indesit service agent and get some advice.
