    The machine is now working before I choose a programme i.e the programme button is in the off position. When I press the on button when the red door lock led is flashing then the green wash button flashes and the red one stops. Machine is still going through wash cycle though

One of the main problems with Indesit front loaders ( apart from replacing the door interlock switch) is

If the door will not close and click in the lock, then take the door off with a tork screwdriver and take the screws of the inner plastic off the door (make sure you do this on a flat surface) and gently prize off the inner plasic by running round a flat head screwdriver..
Once you have taken off the door and glass bowel - check out the door catch to see if a metal rod has come out of its housing holding the catch and spring in place and refit or replace.
I have come across many door catches like this.

I have an indesit wia 101 front loader washing machine. At the moment it will not drain or spin & the red light flashes really quickly


HI,
Check back of washe with a flashlight for a bent or clogged drain hose. Do not move washer to check it. When you move it , it will straighten out and you will never know if it was bent
Also while it is pumping , pick up end of drain hose at drain and observe the volume of water being pumped.
If no water then the Pump may need replaced
Thank you for using fixya

Indesit WIA 121 not working - door latch not shutting


At first thought it was door lock mechanism was at fault but proved it to be ok - removed rubber 'boot' which on this model was on two stretchable spring retainers and checked operation of door lock.
Thought door hinges may have been bent so dismantled door, finding the problem to be the pin that the door latch pivots on had come out on one side so not lining up properly. This was easily pushed back into position.

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

Indesit WE14UK front loading washing machine door locked


try turning the timer knob/programme selector dial round to a black dot, switch appliance off then back on again. the red light should flash once, then pause, then twice then pause then three times. the appliance should now be reset and your door should open, if not there could be a fault on the main pcb control unit.
hope this helps
