No it would not be safe to fit a new plug and try again. If the plug burned out it would appear that there's a short circuit somewhere in the machine possibly caused by a leak. If you replace the plug you risk burning down the house or electrocuting yourself. I'd advise you to get a repairs man to check out the machine to see if it's repairable. It could be something as simple as needing a new door seal which would cost you around 30 euros.

Washing machine wont work


If it's more than 6 years old, it's time for a new one. Or maybe you blew out your fuses. Try resetting the fuse box and switch off and on. Then after you switch back the power, go and try to turn on washing machine again.

Check the motor control board for dry joints, poor contact, signs of excessive heat around plugs/pins
I would try new brushes again or thoroughly inspect whether they are contacting the commutator.

I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

My Indesit Washer dryer WIDL126 will not work all the LED lights are flashing continually.I have tried turning off at the plug and then on again, but no good. Any answers please?


My guess without seeing the machine is - The motor has gone / failed.
You could get someone to check the brushes on the motor, it's only a 30 minute job.
If the brushes are ok i.e more then 10mm long, I suspect the motor has burnt out if the machine is a number of years old.
Hope this helps
