Question about Indesit Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have INDESIT WIXL 163 washer and it's flashing lights when switched on, what does it mean?

When I turn the machine on all the lights start flashing then after approx 30 secs they stop. I can then start the cycle as normal. Something not right - some control board I guess..any advice?

    I am aware of that - it is when the door is shut and the machine is turned on that the lights just flash for about 15 secs then the machine starts - must be some electrical fault..

SOURCE: Reluctant to start

problem is almost certainly the door interlock. to replace, remove the plastic clip holding the door boot onto the cabinet and peel it back adjacent to the door lock. the door lock is just held in by two screws accessible at the front of the cabinet. not an expensive part. easy job - takes about 10 min

hi there just try washing the complete soap drawer again in boiling water leave in there for 10minutes to let the hot water work into the gaps and make sure u take all the holders out of the drawer u sometimes have to use a tooth brush to get into the small holes at the bottom of the little funnel what your softener holder goes over also get a small flat blade screwdriver and clean inside that funnel if thats not clean it will stop softener from going away if this doesnt work still then when your softener is supposed to be taken thru the programme make sure the washer opens the valve for the water to go into the fabric softener holder if it doesnt then the solenoid will need replacing as this could be faulty. LET ME KNOWHOW U GET ON PLEASE PETER

SOURCE: Hi, we have an Indesit WIXL 143(UK)washing

This probably happens after the main wash has completed and it is just finishing the first rinse. It seems to be a warning that there is a partial blockage on the waste outflow. Empty the wash and use the DRAIN program to get as much water out as possible. From the FRONT of the machine open the lower flap and and then put a large towel on the floor. Unscrew the big black filter cover slowly - some water will come out -about a cupful. Ensuring the machine is turned off, use a cloth to remove any obvious build up of "gunk". Would suggest using an old toothbrush to clean off the surface and the plug.
99% of the time - Job Done!
You may have a blockage in your waste pipe. (If using an extension check any coupling has not "bunged up".
Last, check your waste pipe / grey water connection. Again, this "should" be fine, but it may be bunged up, especially if it feeds into the sink outflow.
Stick back together, plug in and use the 11, fast wash option in cold. Should now be happy, and you should hear water gurgling away noisily down the waste.
Always worth doing a 2 - 90 extra hot wash once in a while even EMPTY of washing just to "flush the system" now and again.
Hope this helps and saves you a £104 service engineer call from indesit :)

Indesit wil 153 door red led is flashing after I set washer settings, doesn't start cycle ?


The flashing light means that the machine thinks the door is not closed (The door lock switch is not activating). 99% of the time this is simply a sticky switch and the solution is to give the door a good firm slam shut (Don't get silly here, but it will take a pretty good "teenager slamming the bedroom door in a temper tantrum" type slam).

In the event that this doesn't work, then you're looking at a faulty door interlock switch. They're not that hard to obtain or fit if you're fairly confident. Drop me a comment back here and let me know how you get on. Happy to help further if the above hasn't allowed you to solve the problem.

Selector knob on my Indesit Washing Machine WI 121 keeps turning & light flashes twice before light turns off. This happens approx 4 times in a whole turn of the knob. Indesit want £100 to come out to fix!...


Hi.
Sounds like you have faulty control module, which is quite expensive to replace.
Also the E.P.R.O.M would have to be replaced as well.
Probably cheaper to buy new washer.

Good luck.
