THERE IS A POWER FAILURE FROM THIS PRODUCT. I HAVE ONLY USED THIS 6 TIMES FROM THE TIME IT IS BOUGHT BY MY HUSBAND IN DUBAI, UAE AND HAVE A CARGO HERE IN THE PHILIPPINES... IT IS CHECKED BY THE AUTHORIZED TECHNICIAN OF INDESIT HERE IN THE PHILIPPINES... AND THEY NOTICED THAT THERE IS AN EXPLOSION FROM THE BOARD INSIDE... HOW CAN WE DETECT IT? THERE IS NO DIAGRAM INSIDE THE LEAFLET OR MANUAL... COULD YOU PLEASE GIVE US A DIAGRAM OF THE CONTROL BOARD OF THIS PRODUCT?
This sounds like a case where the Philippines use a 50hz power source and maybe you use 60 hz in UAE? If that is the case then getting 6 loads out of it is kind of amazing. The way these things are these days it is better to buy a new or used one since the cost of a new main board and a technician installing it correctly....might have to have a certain software update to it, it is just not worth the trouble. Besides, more than one thing might have blown. You replace one and it still might not work or the real problem will blow the board again. Unless you are a highly qualified technician on this particular unit it is probably best to chalk it up to a lesson learned.

Not sure what you mean by ‘turn off lock’. If you mean the
door lock light is on or flashing this may indicate a fault, in which case you
would have other lights flashing as well to indicate what the fault is. Click

Sam. The small nut and bolt which protrudes between the element ends should be loosened but not taken off. Press on the bolt, which will relax the compression on the rubber sealing block. This should allow you to extract the element. Once you have done this it will become clear..
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.
Try lifting the drain outlet higher than it is, if it is too low the water will syphon out as it is filling, there by causing the problem you are experiencing, if that does not solve the prob, then it sounds like the pump is on all the time, this being the case, then it would appear that it has a faulty programmer.
Plz rate my solution.
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.
Hours? It sounds like your machine has a problem.. Have you tried clearing the filter on the outlet after the drainage pump? The Indesit only has a 1200 spin speed so it's not the most efficient drier anyway (rated B for spin efficiency).
Personally I dislike Indesit as they release some models which do not permit replacement of the bearings because the innner and outer drum assembly are crimped/pressed together during manufacture. Instead of replacing bearings and seals (At most about £35.00) you would need top buy a complete drum assembly at about £125.00, and throw away a large lump f stainless steel. Presumably Indesit want you to throw the entire machine away, and to buy a new one. Not a brilliant idea in my opinion, as it is unlikely that a frustrated ex Indesit owner will but an Indesit as a replacement, and that sort of wastage (bearings last around three years in regular family use) makes a complete nonsense of energy efficiency ratings. The cost of manufacture and disposal over a three year usage period will have a massive carbon impact in comparison to the energy efficiency savings even of the most efficient of machines.
The planet can't afford to buy cheap machines and then thropw them away.
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
