Hi there,

This machine has had very little use, the drum will not spin on any cycle, you just hear the water pump.

I have tried and checked the following:

Drum is not siezed spins manually OK

Belts in place

Checked for bushes worn they are 1.5 inches long loads of life left!

Checked wiring and plugs for loose and bad connections, there ok

Checked for dry joints on main circuit board.all good..

Any help greatly appreciated, this machine belongs to my pensioner neighbour, who cannot afford an engineer

Please please help.

Thanks kindly

Bal

I have an Indesit washing machine and when it get to a fast spin cycle it sounds like it is washing a load of rocks. It is very loud. It doesn't seem to do this when the drum is turning slowly.


Hi.
It soumds to me like the main drum bearings have failed.
From the front of the washer, put your hand inside the drum and spin it round, it should be noise free, if it feels rough or is grating or rumbling, then the bearings have failed.
This is quite a big and involved repair to undertake.

I have a indesit WIB 101 (uk) washing machine.


Remove the belt, and from the front, spin the drum by hand.
If it is noisy or rumbling or feels rough, then the main drum bearings have failed which would explain why the belt was off.
Also check the drum pulley for a brokem or cracked spoke, again this will give you the same symptons.

Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Severe drum? shaking and display lights flicker during spin cycle


Loose mounting points or broken pins. If not that then possibly drum shaft could be cracked.

My indesit WG1230 washing machine does not spin or move drum but water go in and out.


Hi,
With the door open, try spinning the drum, there should be some resistance along with a slight wherring sound. If it spins freely without much sound at all - you probably need a new belt.
If you can feel it driving the motor, you may need new contact brushes for the motor.
If the machine buzzes when it should rotate on program, you need a new motor Run capacitor also.
If no sound - nothing, the motor may need replacing or at least checking.

Three day old Indesit washing machine


Is it a maytag? My maytag front load washing machine had 2 long bolts with plastic braces on them, to keep the drum still during shipping. Mine would bang and shake all over. I got the book out before I finally figured it out. I had to take the back cover off and remove the bolts and plastic braces over them. They look like they' 8 inches long or so. It works great now.

Indesit Washing Machine not proceedding with the cycle programme after filling with water.


Cant understand how the machine will revolve on the 'spin cycle' & yet you can hear the motor on the 'wash cycle' but yet it doesnt revolve!!
Nomally if the water fills, & the tub revolves without the programmer advancing, its because the heater is not working. ie faulty thermostat, heat element, or maybe a wire burned off in the 'heater circuit'. Check if you have 240 volts at both ends of the heat element, with a meter or 240 volt bulb
                         !! BE CAREFUL OF 240VOLTS!!
