Re: Indesit WD10 Washer dryer seal needs replaced. Where...

Hire a tech and have him get the parts or order them for him.
alternately, you could attempt to do this service on your own.
unless you are very mechanically inclined, you will be very frustrated trying to get this apart.
some things are better left for others that do it all the time. if you have a lot of time and do not value it much, then you could attempt this.
if this is a washer/dryer unit, you might have leaks from doing it yourself. and then again, you might not. having someone else do it is no guarantee they will not err, and give you leaks too.
good luck

We have water leaking out of the left side of the dishwasher occasionally. About 1 in 3 loads will leak. Most of the time it is a small leak 1/4 cup or less but once it was a spray out.

One (or possibly both) of your door seals needsreplacing. It's more likely to be the lower door seal as these usually go first. This seal isn't visible like the goalpost seal that runs around the sides and top of the wash compartment. If you open the door, you can feel this rubber seal when you run your fingers along the bottom of the door on the inside. Be careful though, as there is often a build up of dirt down there!

I don't advise buying any parts until you are certain of where the leak is coming from. Identifying the source of the leak (and therefore which seal to replace) is relatively easy but the best way is to run a wash cycle with the front panel of the door removed. It's quite easy to remove, but you might need a T20 T-Star screwdriver to remove it. Sorry, I can't remember exactly what the fixings are on this model.

A simpler - but not always accurate method - is to check by look and feel. If the water seems to be coming from the sides of the door panel at the bottom when you run a wash cycle, it's the "goalpost" seal that needs replacing. These are easy to obtain and replace - they simply push into a slot.

To test the bottom door seal, run any wash cycle and, when it's finished, stand to the side of the washer and open the door. There is a white plastic panel under the door. Have a feel around on top of this. If it's wet you probably need a new lower door seal. These are much harder to replace as it involves removing the door panel and partially releasing the hinges. I don't recommend this as a DIY fix unless you are competent, confident and have good instructions - i.e a service manual!

Whichever seal you need, they cost around $30 / £20 each.

Please rate this solution if you find it helpful. Thanks.

My dishwasher is working fine . but the water is cold . is it a big job to fix . thanxs.

Some have electrical heating elements that could be tested with a multi meter on the ohm scale. If the meter indicates that the element is open circuit it needs replacing and you should take note of the water seal and mounting of the element.

Indesit IDL530 Dishwasher Leaking

I fixed it myself in the end, the drain hose had a split in it and needed replacing. The problem I had was getting to the drain hose, as it is attached internally to the pump in the bottom of the dishwasher.

Here`s how to get to it:

First, remove the two screws from the back of the dishwasher on the bottom plate, there should be one on the far left and one on the far right.
Put a towel on the floor to soak up any excess water and tip the machine onto its back, so the door is pointing upwards.
At the bottom of the dishwasher you will see two more screws holding the plate on.
Remove these and carefully detach the plate.
You will notice a microswitch on the inside of the plate that has an orange and white wire connected to it.
Make a note of which way round the wires go, as the connector can be put on either way. Remove the connector from the micro switch and then completely remove the plate.
You will see the drain hose attached to the pump with a brass butterfly clip. You will need pliers to open the clip and slide it off the hose where it connects to the pump.
Once you have done this, you need to remove the white plastic clip that goes round the drain hose at the point where it exits the washer.
This clip slides up and away from yourself ( when facing the dishwasher on its back ), then it splits open and comes off.
This should allow you to remove the drain pipe.
Once that is off , its a simple case of getting a replacement pipe and fitting it. ( Follow instructions in reverse )
A word of warning though - I hunted high and low for a replacement and ended up ordering the wrong one from Partmaster.
The pipe MUST have a 90 degree bend in one end, if you search partmaster for Indesit IDL500 drain hose you will see one for £7.99.
You must get this one, as I made the mistake of ordering what I thought was a cheaper alternative ( £4.99 ), The cheaper one also had the 90 degree bend, BUT the end was too small.
Compare the images of the two and you will see that the more expensive one has a larger end at the 90 degree section.

Hope this helps.

Error code A01 on indesit model D73

I looked at other people's suggestions on the web and tipped the machine over to the right side at an angle of 45deg (making sure I had old towels on the kitchen floor.) Water came out from the bottom right-hand corner. When I started up the machine it worked again.

I am writing a letter of complaint to Indesit because in under 3 years I have had to call out the engineer 3 times. Twice the door dropped on it's hinges and just a week ago, when opening the door, the board with all the electronics came away.

This is the first time I have had a malfunction as such and was amazed that a list of error messages was not in the handbook!

I shall not be buying an Indesit again. I have had a Zanussi washer/dryer for 15 years at least. It has had a new door but is still going strong.

D1260 indesit dishwasher

The pump is situated underneath at the right hand back of the machine, you will need to remove the right hand panel to gain access. its not an easy job as it will probably need replacing. a local engineer should charge around 60-70 gbp
