Question about Washing Machines

Open Question

I need to clean out the pre-chamber of my Indesit WIDL126. I've removed the front panel but can't seem to open the cap. Should it simple rotate anti-clockwise or do I need to do something else?

SOURCE: pump pre chamber lid wont open

I have a PWE8168 and assuming yours has a similar arrangement:
1) Switch off water and electricity feeds;
2) Pull the washing machine forward a sufficient distance to allow you to tip it back so that you can gain access to the area next to the pre chamber lid. I found my tool box was handly at propping up the front!
3) A torch is handy at this point. Lie on the floor, and use a pair of mole grip pliers to release the springs securing the pipe attached to the left of the pre chamber filter (looking from the front of the machine).
4) Note that if you have not been able to drain your machine already your should have some towels/cloths and (eg) a tuppaware container ready to collect all the water.
5) Slide the pipe off and you should be able to get your fingers into the pump pre chamber and fish out whatever is jamming both the pump and the lid. I got a 5p piece for my troubles!

I would not say that this is a particularly difficult procedure and apart from water collecting, should only take 20 minutes, including reconnecting the pipe.

SOURCE: Hoover Washer only agitates in one direction

Check the paw. It is a plastic somewhat u shaped piece that sits on the bottom of the machine and is connected by a plastic lever and a solenoid. It usually breaks on the end and as such won't lock the gearbox in. If you keep running it like that there is every chance you will probably burn the motor out.

Indesit widl126 does not dry


Had the same problem, very hot but wet clothes. This is a condensor drier. The fack that the clothes are hot rules out the heater or its control. If yoy hear the fan running and there is no blockage the fault is caused by the 3 stage water valve. During drying a small amount of water is passed through a condensor chamber, the cold water causes steam the condense backi into water then is pumped out through the drain. If the water valve fails no condensing takes place and the clothes remain wet. The valve is easy to change and costs about 15 pounds.

All the red & green led's are flashing very dull


The problem is in the power supply circuit of controller PCB. Replace C9 (680uF/10V) with a new one.

Won't spin on last cycle


The pump is supposedly self cleaning.

There's a 'pre-chamber' behind a panel at the bottom on the front. The top of the panel should tilt forward & up. Turn the 'pre-chamber' anti clockwise, after putting a shallow tray under it to catch the small amount of water that may be there.

I think I have a pdf manual (found on web somewhere) on another computer, I'll have a look & send it to you if you can give me an email address.

Getting to water pump


To gain access to the pump, remove lower plastic cover at front by prising down with a screwdriver, and remove same.
You will see the pump pre-chamber cover, unscrew it anticlockwise,and check for anything in there .
Refit cover and refit plastic panel.
Please rate my fixya solution.
Thanks.
