Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

Hi I have an Indesit WD11 front loader washer/dryer. Run into a problem today. Once we start it up as normal, the selector knob keeps on turning. The washer does not spin at all, only the selector knob does. I've tried turning it off, unplugging the machine. But nothing works. Thanks

The knob keeps turning when you have a problem with the machine the most common problem with indesit is the pump. check to see if there is any thing in the filter compartmet located at the bottom on the front of the machine if so clean and replace.. THEN you will have to reset the knob. you do tis by turning the dial to one of the off position (the big black dot ). Then leave the door open and keep switching the machine on and off quickly from the button on the front of the machine untill you c the lights flicker rappidly.. once this happens the machine is reset and ready to wash ... p.s The pump can be one source for a problem... others include brushes on motor.....but most likely it will be the pump tell tell signs are water in the drum

SOURCE: ariston margherita wont drain and selector knob keeps turning

Plug off the wall first. The spin normally does not work when the outlet filter is clogged; be prepared for a flood of water. If the filter is clean you should then check your pipe coming out from under the tub. Last check your outlet pump, could be blocked with something. Refit carefully, you might need a nice pair of pliers to get the grip clip on and off the pipes.
You can also drain water from the tub thru the rear hose in the wall. Keep bucket handy. The outlet pipe into the wall stands at a particular height, refit exactly to this height, about 3 feet from ground. Do not push the pipe too much down the stand pipe.

SOURCE: How to remove the washer cycle selection/start-stop knob on a Whilpool Heavy Duty Thin Twin stacked washer dryer

I believe the selector knob on a Whirpool just has to be turned counter-clockwise with the selector pushed in. It will spin off the shaft and then the outer indicator dial will pull off. The shaft also has a keyed slot that will only allow the dial to be removed and installed one way, so there should be no question as to how it goes back on.

Was there a reason as to why you are removing the washer selector knob? If this is a simple matter of replacing a broken water temperature selector, you shouldn't have to remove any of the control knobs to gain access to the selector. The entire front panel comes off by removing the screws holding it in place. That way you can access the broken selector from behind the front panel much easier. Just remove the panel right above the washer top (under the dryer) and it should expose the front panel mounting screws. Remove these screws and the front panel comes off. Just make sure the unit is unplugged before you begin. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you need further assistance.

SOURCE: Selector knob on my Indesit Washing Machine WI 121 keeps turning

Hi.
Sounds like you have faulty control module, which is quite expensive to replace.
Also the E.P.R.O.M would have to be replaced as well.
Probably cheaper to buy new washer.

Good luck.

Selector knob on my Indesit Washing Machine WI 121 keeps turning & light flashes twice before light turns off. This happens approx 4 times in a whole turn of the knob. Indesit want £100 to come out to fix!...


Two flashes while the dial rotates on an Indesit WI121 relates to a problem with 'Motor jammed or tacho short or open circuit'

I traced the fault to a dry soldering joint at a relay on the control board. After checking the non-component side of the board I could see blackening around one of pins where it had not been soldered properly.
It was easily fixed by re-soldering the joint.
