SOURCE: indesit wash machine drum bearing

Some models like the WE12 have sealed drums where the bearings can't be changed. You have to buy a complete unit for about £120.

SOURCE: Bearing noise on Indesit WDG1295

you will have to open the machine lid to see if its a plastic drum or metal.
the metal drum is easier as it has a 'spider asssembly'. remove this after taking off the pulley by taking out the bolts that hold it and bang it off being carefull of the heater element. remove the bearings and seal and refit in reverse order you took it off.
i would not advise replacing plastic drum bearings as they are a pain, removal of the rear of a plastic drum easy but not putting it back !

SOURCE: My Indesit WIXL143 washer has

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry, I do not know your particular machine but before considering the ball valve, if it hasn't been done already, I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking filters and motors ;-0)
-------------------------------------
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Indesit wixl143 broken I try to start a wash it sounds like it should as I can hear water but it's not going into the drum and the door lock light is flashing rapidly along with the extra rinse light


Suggest you take the back off and home in on the water input filter. They are often gunged up with lime scale. Do pull the plug on it before you attack it with a wrench etc.

My indesit wixl143s, fills with water normally but immediately it drains. washing movements do not start. When manually set to rinse and spin cycles it works.


I would like to know is there any fault code?
Identification of the error code using the 4 LEDs. One or more different combinations of LEDs indicates the failure.

Remove bearing from indesit drum how to split drum


all of the newer indesit washing machines have whats called a welded drum meaning they cannot be split open.the thing about this is to change the bearings you have to buy a full drum. best option is to go through the indesit company themselves. aprox cost £100 if under 5 years and £140 if over 5years. hope this helps

Wd10 indesit washer banging


It could be the drum bearings. If you can move the drum up and down, the bearings is worn. It could also be the balanceweight that sits on the top of the outer tub that have gone loose. It's usually made of cement, or cast iron.
