Perhaps the exit hose behind your machine is not at the correct height, about 3 feet from ground. Your pump pumps the waste over this height, into your standpipe or sink; check this out.

SOURCE: indesit w93 washing machine fills with water but doesn't start washing

Hi there. I have an old model, the indesit WM12. Never counted the flashing light (yours was 10) but my dial started clicking constantly at the drain part. I called Idesit and they told me it was a blockage in the filter.
The filter they speak of it located, on mine, at the front of the machine at the very bottom on the right. It is a black dial about 3 - 4 inches in diameter. Unscrew that anti-clockwise (a real pain because so much water comes out. My wife and I unscrewed it, filled a baking tray with water, screwed it back up, emptied / substituted tray then same all over again - until empty. Though putting it on drain again and again helped at same time). When I pulled out the filter found a 'colour catcher' sheet in it. We used them first time ever the other day. Removed that, gave filter a wee clean and, hey presto, all is working again. Hope that helps. Jim

SOURCE: SIEMENS XLM 1600 WON'T GO INTO SPIN CYCLE

Dear customer,
                     When the spin cycle doesnt occur the most recommended steps are 

  1. Test the lid switch
  2. Test the timer control
  3. Test the centrifugal switch
  4. Test the water level switch
  5. Inspect the motor coupler
  6. Inspect the drive belt (belt drive only)
  7. Inspect under the washer for soot (clutch)
  8. Test the motor
  9. Inspect the pulley
  10. Test the transmission.

  You can click on the highlighted words to get details abt the checking procedure.. 

Plz rate this solution.. thank you..

SOURCE: the washer will not drain or spin

more than likely the pump needs replacing, first of all remove the outlet drain hose from the the place it discharges and lower it into a bucket,this should allow it to syphon away,you may need to empyt the bucket a few times once the machine is empty you should be able to put it on its spin cycle once it has spun locate and remove the filter to remove any objects or lint, fill machine with warm water and try to drain and spin via the programme,if this do not work fit a new pump

My washing machine is leaking a lot of water during a cycle - underneath in the front. Could there possibly by a back log of water? I have drained it, but it's a lot of water.


You will need to open up the front or rear panel and inspect the hoses before and during operation to see where the leak is. There are many Youtube videos on how to remove the panels. Good luck!

I have smelly brown deposits coming back into the wash and staining the wash


If your drain hose is draining under the sink its probably coming from there.Pull the hose through as much as you can
and tie it up as high as it will go at the sink waste.this will stop
any waste from your sink flowing down the washing machine drain hose.

Siemens xlm 1400 will not rinse clothes, it makes noise but the drum will not rotate eventhough it will turn by hand.


your motors drive brushes need replaced

so look to use the model number in EBAY

http://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2050601.m570.l1313.TR0.TRC0.H0.Xxlm+1400+brushes.TRS0&_nkw=xlm+1400+brushes&_sacat=0

i used the search string
'xlm 1400 brushes'
and they are quite easy to replace..

it may do a whole wash cycle and count down etc just wont spin or move the drum with heavy water laden clothes

goes eeeeeeeheheeheh but no drum rotate

so
you can drain the machine only
lay the machine down with the soap drawer away from the ground
then it wont leak
two screws and one power clip removes the brushes
from the main motor {the one with the belt that drives the drum}
their are two brushes one each side
so 4 screws
and replace both ..
so...

good times

let us know the size of the brushes left

they should be like new 2.5" - 3" long
if they are less then 1.5" replace them

this is the issue

the main advice is not to use it just now
till you check the motor brushes

as this type of fault can further damage the motor

so .. dont use it till you check / replace the brushes as the intermittent contacting will damage the motors stator {the bit the brushes make contact with}

Spin cycle will not work on siemens xlm 1400 and filter has been cleaned what to do


If the spin cycle is not working, it could be several things. How is it not working? If it won't do anything, i.e. doesn't turn, then I would suspect the transmission since the spin cycle is the high side of the transmission. If it spins but does not take the water out of the unit, then I would suspect, either the pump or the timer.

Good luck and have a great day!

SIEMENS XLM 1600 (WXLM166AGB) MACHINE WILL NOT TAKE IN SOFTENER FROM DETERGENT TRAY


If water is being dispensed from both sides of the detergent tray, dismantle washing machine and remove top plate of the detergent tray and clean thoroughly. Water overflows from both sides during the rinse cycle to add softener to the rinse. On our washing machine it was blocked. During the service it was changed but can be washed out to solve problem.
