hiya
these machines will do this if the timer dial has been moved during a cycle, they have a memory chip on the main circuit board.

they also do this if the machine has a fault with the exception that they dont stop, the doorlock light flashes and the timer just keeps clicking.

try setting the timer to a dot on the settings then switching the power on, the doorlock light will flash a few times, turn off again select program then switch back on, machine should now be reset and work ok, if not then count the flashes of the doorlock light as this indicates a fault code.

hope this helps

Check your exit hose spigot, it may be clogged. This is if your filter is all clean. There should be air for passage in the standpipe behind. Your hose should not fit airtight into the standpipe and neither too deep into it. Snaking out your standpipe would be good too.

Rate me pl.....if helped.

We had similar fault.
Rectified ours by switching off at the mains and put dial to one of the dots. Switched on and it reset.
Good luck

SOURCE: dial keeps rotating

This a common problem with Indesit washers..
It is not a timer but a programme selector switch.
What you need to do is the following.
Switch the m/c on, let the drain pump empty the water, then switch the m/c off.
set the selector switch to one of the black dots on the dial, which is stop/reset.
Then switch washer back on, if the dial still keeps going round and round, then you are going to have to call an engineer, as you have what is called an Anomaly (fault).
Plz leave feedback for this solution.
Thanks

SOURCE: indesit w123s on daily wash program no8

you need to open up the small door where the filter is and clear it out. Mine does this everytime my son puts his trousers in the wash and forgets to empty the pockets! we've had all sorts, elastic bands, wrappers, and money. Usually the machine still has water in it as the filter is blocked it won't continue the programme until this is clear and thats why the continuous clicking happens.

Hi i have an indesit w 123s washing machine, that set to any program it doesnt move on it just does that setting,then if you turn the machine off and set it to end program you can reset to rinse and the...


hello try restting it before you bin it
  1. Turn the washing machine off with the on off button.
  2. Turn the selector knob to a dot, or any off position
  3. Turn the washing machine back on and watch for rapid flashing on the neon light
  4. Turn the washing machine off and select the new program (or maybe spin)
  5. Turn it back on and the new program should start
NOTE: Resetting the timer selector knob as shown above may stop the clicking round, but if your washing machine has a fault, the clicking round may return when your washing machine encounters the fault again. If your washing machine's program selector knob is clicking round on its own, then read the section above Washing machine stops with lights flashing hope it helps

W83t, programme selector knob keeps clicking over clockwise. is it just a faulty switch?


No it is not a faulty switch, it is the selector switch going round because of another fault on the washer, it is usually associated with a faulty control module.
Check your handbook and see if there nis a reset point on the selector switch dial, usually marked with one or more solid black dots.
Hope this helps.

Hello I lost my instructions for theej351c, can you help?

3. Check a clock; then rotate time dial clockwise at least one click, stopping at the half
hour nearest to present time. NOTE: When rotating time dial, do NOT accidentally PRESS at
the same time. (While rotating dial, keep pressure, pulling out on the dial to avoid accidentally
setting an incorrect time.)
4. Press pushbutton once to enter present time. RED INDICATOR will go OFF, present
time has now been recorded.
5. Rotate time dial clockwise to desired ON time; RED light will PULSE momentarily
with each click.
6. Press pushbutton to enter ON time; controlled light(s) will turn on.
7. Rotate dial to desired OFF time.
8. Press pushbutton to enter OFF time; controlled light(s) will now be off.

indicating timer is in AUTOMATIC mode. NOTE: Dial does not rotate automatically
after setting to indicate time of day.

hi there first of all check your filter located at the front of the machine for blockages as this is a comon fault, failing that next time the dial clicks round count the amount of times the red light flashes before it does a pause then starts again, and let me know how many flashes it does as this corasponds to a fault code

Indesit WE14UK front loading washing machine door locked


try turning the timer knob/programme selector dial round to a black dot, switch appliance off then back on again. the red light should flash once, then pause, then twice then pause then three times. the appliance should now be reset and your door should open, if not there could be a fault on the main pcb control unit.
hope this helps

Clicking control knob


try checking the filter, its normally located behind the kick plate on the bottom of the machine, best to tip machine back when you unscrew filter though as there will be quite a bit of water in the pipes more often than not.
hope this helps.

ps if the dial is just clicking the red light will flash as well, count the flashes as this indicates a fault code. there will be about a second gap between flashes.
