    seems that this is a common fault with indesit machines and is likely to be down to a fault developing in the programmer. machine still works but spin speed has dropped from the 1200rpm as the clothes are not as dry as usual. I can live with this as a neighbour seems to have a way with these things and will look at it Weds p.m. and give his verdict. So long as I isolate machine from power source at end of wash it is safe in the short term. Will let you know the outcome, it may help you in future.

I found that a new pcb module was required at a cost of £90 and no guarantee that this would be the end of it so I am not prepared to spend a lot on a £199 machine so will purchase a better machine but not a INDESIT. Thanks for input from all.

Try pressing "end of cycle" button, wait for 2 minutes before opening the door, do not force door.

    If it doesn't drain well, and clothes are still wet check to see if any block in pump. Still not good, check your motor brushes to see if they are fine.

Machine wont start

Perhaps your user manual could explain what the flashing LED means. First thing I would do is unplug for a minute or so, then try again. A Google search may find you a manual. I hope this helps.

Dear my washing machine is product from italy made siemens wash and dry its showing E14 errorr please advise me what i can atcvally

Laundry appliances use many different codes depending upon age and origin. Faults that can be dealt with by the user are normally listed in the instruction book.
Link to instruction manual download Flashing LEDs or displays frequently indicate door not closed, low water pressure or a blockage in the drain pump, drain hose or your drainage system.

Dear Mr/Ms, I think my ecosave washing machine has some mis-functions. Whenver what process has been done, symptoms are the same. The symptoms are the followings . . . . - blinking error LED light:...

The error came from an electronic control, the damage usually occurs in the data memory. under normal circumstances should have after finishing washing or spin process, washing machine will turn off automatically, indicated by the beep sound and flashing lights first. if you quite understand you just need to fix the electronic control block only, reset IC memory or the easiest way is to unplug all cables (socket) connected to electronic control, turn on the washing machine and then power off and reattach all the cables socket into place. particularly note the socket cable of  water level sensors and unbalance switches. electronic control block is usually coated with rubber glue. but I often fix it without having to replace the whole (one block / set electronic controls). good luck

Finished, wash and spin lights flashing. Door

I just had this problem! To get the clothes out, open door manually (follow answers on other threads here about opening toe panel and gently pulling down on door release). But as it turned out, I didn't need to remove the clothes, and now my washer is working again.

A local repairman gave me this advice over the phone. Make sure dial is switched to off. Unplug your machine, then plug it back in. Hold down the rinse and delay buttons with one hand. With the other hand, switch the dial from off to cold or warm or whatever cycle you want. All the buttons flash a few times, then just the start button flashes. The second time I tried this, my washer worked afterwards. I've done several loads today with no problem.

Bosch classixx 1000 washing machine - stops on spin

Washing machine stops at the spin cycle - light flashes. Have to drain water out manually. Happened last week and was then able to run an empty rinse cycle. Machine worked normally for another week. Same problem today but have had to drain water manually from the drum after trying an empty 90 wash and rinse cycle (both stopped on the Spin and flashed). Any ideas? Thanks. x

LG Tromm WD 12270 RD washer and dryer

Hi, I don't know how to fix your problem, Lia, unfortunately, BUT wanted to say "Thank You!!" for mentioning that you can get the washer to run through the cycle by rotating the drum and switching to cold water wash! We'd tried unplugging, leaving it unplugged overnight even, but the code/beeping started immediately after plugging back in. I'm kind of longing for an old-school washer right now, thinking of all the things that can go wrong with the newer digital-age computerized ones :-) If you see this, please share what you did to solve your washer problem! Hoping it's not too expensive to fix...or I should say to GET it fixed :-\

check the cold water supply, either from the mains pipe, there is no water getting into the machine, if water is there up to the machine check the solenoid for circuit, to do this unplug from electric, remove lid, and test the two wires on relevant solenoid, no circuit means faulty solenoid, (test with the 2 wires removed from solenoid) take care note position of wires to put back properly answer above based on info given
