Question about Indesit W 123 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Indesit WIXXL146 washing machine will not turn on

I've done all the bog standard basic checks, nothing wrong with the fuse, plug or the socket that he machine is plugged into. I have cleared the filter out just in case. When I switch the power on at the socket the washing machine is plugged into, all fur green lights and the red neon on-off/door locked lights all immediately flash up to indicate power to the machine. However, when I turn the on-off button to start the wash load there is nothing - no red neon nor any green lights come on. Any ideas as to what I can do to try an fix this? I do have plumbing skills I just am not a washing machine expert by any means. However I am not afraid to get stuck in so any knowledgeable suggestions you can offer will be greatly appreciated. Many thanks for your help in advance, JD.

Have a WIXXL 146 that ist heating water, no fault codes are showing in the lamps, machine otherwise fine. Is the easiest way a resistance check on the element?


Try a volt meter first, if you are getting voltage the next best thing is a clamp amp meter. Resistance will be probably less then 15 ohms (guesing). I have added a link for the manual.

No lights on indesit washing machine


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Check that the washer supply is OK using another item - a kettle for instance. If it's not check your breakers/fuses. Reset/replace if necessary and if the same thing happens, or if there was nothing wrong with the breakers/fuses in the first place, sorry but with such a fault it is impossible for anybody on this forum to remotely guess what could be wrong with your washer. It could be internal wiring/plugs sockets, control panel switches, control PCB.

I fear that your only real option is a service call as the engineer will have the right equipment to safely diagnose what is wrong.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry but with such a major fault it is virtually impossible for anybody on this forum to remotely guess what is wrong with your washer. It could be internal wiring/plugs sockets, control panel switches, control PCB. I fear that your only real option is a service call as the engineer will have the right equipment to safely diagnose what is wrong.
Sorry again and good luck,

Have a GE Select washing machine that won't start or operate ? Can you help ?


Hello there and than you for choosing fixya
Washing machine is dead, wont start Obviously the first thing to check is that the socket is supplying power by plugging another appliance in such as a lamp. It is less likely to be the socket but you'd be daft not to check it out before calling an engineer as it does occasionally turn out to be a faulty wall socket. This is only necessary though if there are no led indicator lights lit up on your washer as any light that's on shows that the machine is getting a live and neutral supply from the socket.
The second thing to check is the fuse in the plug. Either put the fuse into something else and check the appliance still works or try another fuse that you know to be OK in the washer. Make sure you use a 13 amp fuse and never by-pass a fuse! If both of those are OK, then the most common cause for a washing machine that wont start is the door interlock, particularly if the mains lights on the washing machine has come on, but nothing works. However, the fault could also be in wiring to the door interlock or even the door catch not activating it properly, or the on off switch or the main control module. With some Indesit and Hotpoint washing machines even an open circuit heater or motor can cause the entire washing machine to stop working except the led lights.
You need to know what you are doing to trace this type of fault so if it isn't the wall socket or the plug you'd be better getting an engineer to trace it. Do not work on a live washing machine. Engineers should use a continuity test meter to trace faults with the washing machine unplugged and never test with a live washing machine.
