Try putting some locktite on the thread of the bolt. Loctite is a liquid you can buy to lock bolts into there threads.Alternativley the pulley that the belt runs on may be worn & sloppy in the centre where it goes on the metal shaft.you may need a new pulley as well as Loctite..but try the Loctite first.

Indesit wib111 leaking from pump


This that unscrews is a filter cover, it does have to come out and will be restricted by something thats blocking it, without being too forceful it will have to be removed so the "catch area" can be cleared of objects, like pins and maybe a sock, then the cover can be screwed back in and made secure to stop it leaking (engineer of 20 years experience)

How to fit new eleiment in Indesit DVG622WHUK


Unplug the machine and remove the back plate (5 or 6 screws).
At the bottom of the drum you will see the element.
Best thing to do is take a photo of the wires before removing them.
Undo the screw in the centre of the heater element (not all the way off)
Tap the nut and thread gently till it goes in a little and you should be able to pull the element straight out.
Place the new element in (with nut in similar place) until it sits nicely in the hole.
Then do it up nice and tight and replace the wires making sure they are in the right place and jobs done :)
Replace the back and try it. Should be fine.

The fan belt keeps coming off when it comes to do a spin also makes a knocking noise from the drum. its only 14 month old its a indesit wlb101 and its driving me nuts


Sounds like the main bearings could be worn.
Remove the belt, and spin drum by hand from the front of the washer,
If it is noisy or feels rough, then it is the bearings.
If that is o/k, then check the drum pulley is not broken or loose.

How do i fix on a drive belt to a washing machine?


There is a removeable cover at bottom rear of washer..
Undo this, and you will see the motor and belt.
It will be very tight to put on, but this is normal as it is a stretch belt, that is why there is no adjustment on motor.
Hope this helps you .
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

How easy is it to change the drum bearings on my indesit wil163s?


you will need to remove the pulley first, the screw in the middle will need a knock to release the loctite.
you will then need to remove the spider assembly, that's the metal cross the bearings are sitting in. there are bolts set around the drum. spray the bearings shaft with oil to help removal, and you may need to hammer the spider as you remove it to loosen it. be careful of the heater.
then knock the bearings and seal out and do the reverse proceedure to put back together.

You can download a user manual for your m/c, but not a repair manual, Go to>
www.indesit .co.uk
Follow the links. To remove the spider, remove the rear panel, remove drum belt, undo drum pulley, you may have to heat the screw holding the pulley,undo all screws that you can see holding the spider to drum rear.
Withdraw spider, you may have to use some force to pull it off.
Fit new bearings or spider, and reassemble..

Indesit wil 103 heater element


no need to take drum out. heater is held by one 10mm nut in the middle of the heater. when tightened, this nut compresses the rubber seal and holds heater in place. loosen the nut. the heater will probably be too tight to remove by hand so carefully use a screwdriver to lever it out
