The machine you have does give problems with the module and they can be expensive to replace. It might not be the module however. your machine does a self test diagnostic upon startup, it checks every component and if it detects a faulty part, the result is that it just clicks around back to the stop position. this is not a repair that you would be able to carry out yourself unfortunatly. most commonly however, the brushes may need to be replaced, this you could do yourself though. UNPLUG the machine from the wall, put the machine on its side(soapbox side on the floor IMPORTANT) and remove the carbons(brushes) from the motor, if they are worn, they will be very short in length and the surface of either one or both will have a burned black mark, they should be shiny, this is the part that makes contact with the motor.
replacing these, if they are worn, will solve your problem, but if they are not the case, you will need to call out an engineer im afraid.

Hi, our washing machine starts to pump out water and then stops. The counter still keeps going but without the machine actually doing anything. The water doesnt drain out sometimes and the no drain light...

Possible failure of the main program controller unit as it fails to contact at times and resets .
Since you mentioned that it is erratic the program is not executed to contact to the job of the cycle and so the drain pump/valve is stopped mid way.

Hi i have an indesit w 123s washing machine, that set to any program it doesnt move on it just does that setting,then if you turn the machine off and set it to end program you can reset to rinse and the...

hello try restting it before you bin it
  1. Turn the washing machine off with the on off button.
  2. Turn the selector knob to a dot, or any off position
  3. Turn the washing machine back on and watch for rapid flashing on the neon light
  4. Turn the washing machine off and select the new program (or maybe spin)
  5. Turn it back on and the new program should start
NOTE: Resetting the timer selector knob as shown above may stop the clicking round, but if your washing machine has a fault, the clicking round may return when your washing machine encounters the fault again. If your washing machine's program selector knob is clicking round on its own, then read the section above Washing machine stops with lights flashing hope it helps

If the washing machine is on the rinse cycle should it not agitate the clothes?

Some washers have a static rinse as well as agitated rinses, but normally they rinse with the drum or agitator going round, if yours does not agitate on any rinse, then there is a fault. which needs investigating.

inner one is hot and outer one is cold.

My Indesit won't advance, won't complete a cycle

Suggestion: Try cleaning your outlet filter. This needs periodic cleaning, according to your usage. Refer to user's manual re. the cleaning. When it is the rinse problem it usually is the filter block. W
