At first thought it was door lock mechanism was at fault but proved it to be ok - removed rubber 'boot' which on this model was on two stretchable spring retainers and checked operation of door lock.
Thought door hinges may have been bent so dismantled door, finding the problem to be the pin that the door latch pivots on had come out on one side so not lining up properly. This was easily pushed back into position.

I think something blocked my door from closing properly as there was water on the floor now the green light is permantly flashing and wont work.


I am not familiar with that make of machine but most machines have an adjustable door lock latch, often they are only secured by a single screw and if this has become loose it may cause your door not to seal tightly and in turn leak. As for the green light it may have a sensor connected to the door latch to indicate it is not properly shut. Try checking the door latch, Adjusting and re-tightning screws.

Neff dishwasher door problem.


The latch on many dishwashers is adjustable. If your door is easy to close but difficult to latch, adjust the latch to let the door close more easily. If you can't see any way to adjust the latch, yours may be fixed in a certain position. Check for other reasons for the latching problem.

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 wia 121 door lock keeps flashing and when put machine on it goes to a wash without turning dial to correct wash no.


these machines have a memory built into the pcb's which means that if they are switched off or there is a powercut etc they will just carry on from where they were in the cycle as soon as they next power up. if there is a black dot on the timer settings turn the dial to it then switch machine on and this should reset it for you after a few seconds. if this does not work count how many times the doorlock light flashes as this is a fault analysis code they will usually flas then pause for a second then flash again and repeat this sequence until a longer pause (3 seconds) then the sequence starts over.

hope this helps

Indesit WIA 121 washing machine, front loader. The door lock led is continuessly flashing red even when the programme has stopped and the door is opened. I have to switch off at the main plug. Machine is...


One of the main problems with Indesit front loaders ( apart from replacing the door interlock switch) is

If the door will not close and click in the lock, then take the door off with a tork screwdriver and take the screws of the inner plastic off the door (make sure you do this on a flat surface) and gently prize off the inner plasic by running round a flat head screwdriver..
Once you have taken off the door and glass bowel - check out the door catch to see if a metal rod has come out of its housing holding the catch and spring in place and refit or replace.
I have come across many door catches like this.

this could be your interlock this is what sends power if this is not working the washer wont work simple way to test is close the door and bang the front of the washer were the interlock is if its a faulty interlock or a lose wire then it may start up but more then likely that it is the interlock m8
