    I have exactly the same problem with my INDESIT WD10 WASHER N DRYER and the water will not drain. I've switch it off, waited for a while and re-started the machine and the entire wash, it starts to wash but after about 5 mins the dial begins to spin and click forever! Any ideas?

I had exactly the same problem, found the answer on another website. The filter had a small sock stuck in it, stoppin the ppump from turning and draining the water out. Lever off the front panel right at the bottom of the washine machine, then unscrew the round black plug, lots of water will come out. Pull out the black thing and stick you fingers inside and pull out watever is blocking the pump. Turn off the electrics first. Mine now works fine again. :)

I am an amatuer electronics designer, and I have an Indesit WD 10 broken down. In the first place, many front loading washing machines are now controlled by a microprocessor that not only controls the programme phases of wash and spin and dry etc., etc., but also senses if something is wrong with a periferal component or programme phase. The circuit board on the WD 10 is an Ariston FE. It can be configurated with different discete components, but also it has RAM or EEPROM that has to be programmed to match your particular machine.

So you have all the peripheral devices--tub elements, thermistor probes, electric motor, pressure switches, drier fan, and drier element, and these are all sensed by the microprocessor and EEPROM, and the onboard electronic components control these peripheral electrical and mechanical devices that make up all what the washing machine and drier does.

When something goes wrong with a programme, or that of a device failure, the slave programme selector "aborts" the programme sellected, or that when it moves on to a programme such as rinse and drain, if something is wrong with peripherals it shall again "abort its programme", and this is when the microprocessor commands the slave programme selector to rotate around to find a reset/off position on the front panel programme select icons.

As yet, I am in the process of trying to find out what it is exactly that causes the programme selector to abort and begin rotating around. That is, the aborting programme selector and rotation of the switch can develop under a variety of different conditions.

The service manual for the WD 10 is very expensive at about £30 for a couple of dozen photostats, but it does clearly begin to work over the entire machine bit by bit as though you were a captain of an airliner getting ready to take of with the pre-flight check list.

This does not help the ordinary person get their machine working again, or does it fully explain the rotating programme selector. The service manual does appear to be designed for engineers prepairing to renevate the whole machine.

Obviously, one would automatically suspect the bottom water pump, and this could be a blocked filter, but it could also be a faulty pressure switch. Anway, the list of most common faults with the WD 10 is worn or uneven electric motor brushes, open circuit temperature probes or thermistors, condensation on the Ariston FE circuit board causing short circuiting and damage, or similar condensation and short circuiting where the edge connector plug fits onto the programme selector.

Please be aware that every attempted fault repair must be accompanied by a "reset proceedure" with withdrawing all mains power and selecting the black dot or reset position on the programme selector.
This reset preceedure must be accompanied by a knowledge that electrostatic charges and EEPROM memory must either drain out of the electronic components or sense the peripheral mode of the washing machine components before reset. The time interval is equal to or greater than 30s or equal to approximately 3-4 minutes between resets when ALL SWITCHES ARE OFF AND MAINS POWER IS COMPLETELY REMOVED when commanding the reset proceedure.

Anyway, try checking the filter and bottom pump, the motor brushes, the thermistors, the micro interlock door locking mechanism, and the pressure switch by substitution and elimination, and then take a look at the back of the programme selector as well as the main Ariston FE circuit board for burning, then go through the reset proceedure carefully.

All the best in getting your Indesit WD 10 working properly. Meanwhile, if you yourself find anything obvious about peripher devices on the machine, please send me an email to Email:grahamrichmond@onetel.com.

Indesit washing machine not spinning - fault code timer and dor lock light flashing

Dial keeps rotating


This a common problem with Indesit washers..
It is not a timer but a programme selector switch.
What you need to do is the following.
Switch the m/c on, let the drain pump empty the water, then switch the m/c off.
set the selector switch to one of the black dots on the dial, which is stop/reset.
Then switch washer back on, if the dial still keeps going round and round, then you are going to have to call an engineer, as you have what is called an Anomaly (fault).
Plz leave feedback for this solution.
Thanks

My indesit washer/dryer model w10 ,is not working.the programme dial keeps cliking round wont start a programme or take in water.


probably a main module fault but worth while checking for continuity thro the heater and that the pump and filter are ok. the idea is that when a fault is detected, the dial will click round indicating a fault but usually it is the module itself. expensive part. not worth repair

Indesit w93 washing machine fills with water but doesn't start washing


Hi there. I have an old model, the indesit WM12. Never counted the flashing light (yours was 10) but my dial started clicking constantly at the drain part. I called Idesit and they told me it was a blockage in the filter.
The filter they speak of it located, on mine, at the front of the machine at the very bottom on the right. It is a black dial about 3 - 4 inches in diameter. Unscrew that anti-clockwise (a real pain because so much water comes out. My wife and I unscrewed it, filled a baking tray with water, screwed it back up, emptied / substituted tray then same all over again - until empty. Though putting it on drain again and again helped at same time). When I pulled out the filter found a 'colour catcher' sheet in it. We used them first time ever the other day. Removed that, gave filter a wee clean and, hey presto, all is working again. Hope that helps. Jim

Plug off the wall. Clean out your outlet filter. Access is a door in the front bottom of your machine, be prepared for some water to come out. Refit.
