7.5 Kg F&P washing machine, purchased in 2000. On turning machine on, the usual sequence of lights come on then when the lights are off, I turned it on (normal wash), did not change any settings. Water turned on and off a few times then error signal comes on. Tried again, from turning off at powerpoint, yet exactly the same problem. May I have your suggestion please?

Sounds like the time needs to be replaced...seems like it's not advancing through the sequence..what's your technical skill level for doing this work on your own?

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
