Plug off the wall first. A broad hose comes from under your tub, it leads to your filter; find where u can hv access to it.

SOURCE: Indesit WG820 no power in spin

For your model I hope you will find the filter, seen similar models. Disconnect the machine from the mains outlet. Below the door, there's a plastic cover full machine width. Just remove it and on the right you'll see the filter. Unscrew the filter counter clockwise, clean it, check the pump blades and inlet for some foreign objects and screw filter back on.

SOURCE: locating fluff filter on aeg washer/dryer

I have the same problem with mine. There isn't a fluff filter that you can get to easily. When the engineer came to fix something else he showed me this big tube thing inside the machine that had the inside coated with fluff. The machine wasn't very old and I only use the dryer for underwear (apparently towels make it much worse). So ... you'll have to get someone to dismantle the machine to get to the fluff. I was wondering if it is covered by the guarantee because it is ruining my washing.

How to fit belt on Creda Reversair 37643 Tumble dryer


New belt is very tight, so you have to use more strength. Put it on motor and all other on "drum". Spin it easily and slowly but with strength until its done.


Be carefully, use gloves.

Hi I have a hoover washing machine which is now showing a F13 error while tumble drying what could be the problem


Depending on the model, there may be subtle variations to the error code meaning for F13, but essentially it will mean "Dryer fan or dryer thermisotor faulty or open or short circuit."

There is a high probability it is a thermistor tripping out. It cuts power to the heater or fan, or both if the tumble dryer function overheats. If you take the top off the machine, somewhere in the area of the heating element, you will see the thermistor (There could be more than one). It's round, about the size of your thumbnail, set into an oval metal casing, usually with 2 holes in it to mount it and a couple of spade connectors coming off it..

(See a picture here: http://www.espares.co.uk/part/tumble-dryers/thermostats/indesit/isl70c/p/1587/805/0/552087/552036/tumble-dryer-thermostat-k.html)

It may need replacement, or you may be able to reset it. If it is one that can be reset, the back will have a small hole in it that you can poke a paperclip end into.


Basically, the thermistor is a convex bi-metal disc that, when it gets too hot, pings and becomes concave, by pushing a paperclip into the hole, you push out the disc and make it concave again (You will hear it click as you push the pin in).

You can test to see if it is the thermistor that has tripped by bypassing it (Jump a wire from one spade to the other) and seeing if the machine then tumbles and heats as it should. DO NOT leave it like this! It is a fire risk as you will have bypassed the fail safe!.

Also ask yourself WHY it tripped in the first place. The primary cause is simply a blocked lint filter that is not allowing enough air passage and causing an overheat, but it could also be a faulty heater element that is burning out.

Hope this all helps

No heat on Indesit IS60V tumble dryer


The heater and stats are located at the rear of the m/c behind a removable panel.
you need a meter to test them, more likely to be a stat problem, but again you must test them for continuity.
Plz leave feed back for my solution.
Thanks.

Common faults -
1 The heating elements can fail (meaning open circuit)
2 There are cut-outs (T.O.C's) that might need resetting
3 The thermostats (stats) can trip out or burn out (meaning opencircuit)
4 Moderntumble dryers also have sensors and pcb's (Printed circuitboards) thesehave programs that can fail and circuitry although most should produce an errorcode showing you were the fault is.
5 Faultyconnections and burned wires may also be the fault.
