Hi there,

I take it that it is a front loader, what make and model machine do you have?

    It sounds like you have a faulty sensor switch to the door.

    ok, sounds like you have escaped damage from the 220 volts. Thats good news:)

    They have a volatile memory, particularly for settings to do with video switching and input sourcing.
    If your unit has been disconnected, you may have to go through the menus and reselect the correct input sources for video switching.

    Q. Have you had the unit disconnected from the power for any length of time?

Indesit Washing machine WIL88 red light flashing


Seems that the main board or the processor is hanging up and does not take up the full process control. You need to remove the panel and check for moisture on the board, check for loose connectors. If this seems fine the fault seems related to the board and can be confirmed with a board swap before one can be ordered. Check the door switch and wiring to the main board.

Washing machines door open light is on, but door is shut


Found it for myself - F7=motor fault. New motor brushes fixed it. This error code will come up if the motor fails to turn on demand at any point in a program, be it filling, in a wash cycle, or spinning.

Washer runs when timer dial turned though ON button not pushed


Problem solved by ourselves! It was NOT in the circuit board (brain) of the machine. It was NOT in the door locking assembly as others would lead us to believe. It WAS the on/off switch on the control panel--part number 22002560 - a $22.00 problem fix.

Washer door pops open during wash cycle


Start the washer in a cycle. When the door locked light comes on, before unit gets to full of water, see if you can pull door open. If so, you probably have a broken latch. The wax motor is activating the switch, but latch is not actually closing. There was a door latch upgrade for some of these models.

Non-stop draining at whatever cycle selection


Is your drain pump constantly running? If it isn't, check the standpipe (drain pipe) and make sure you don't have your drain hose shoved down in the pipe too far or the top sealed off. The stand pipe needs an air gap to properly drain, or it can siphon water from the wash tub. Symptom: Washer continually tries to fill or slow fills, but water won't stay in wash tub. Double check your drain line to be sure. It could be a simple fix.
