Question about Indesit W 123 Front Load Washer
Whole load of different possibilities with your problem,and alot are not obvious!What i`d do is to select spin only-only 2 things should happen,1 the pump should come on and 2 the drum should go round.If you hear the pump running without any h2o in the machine you should hear the chug chug noise as the machine`s pump is scaverging the bit of h2o in the body of the pump,if nothing is heard you should check that the pumps impellor is not jammed.If this, ie, 1 works but the drum isn`t revolving and ,as you say the belt is still on,then i should think the motor brushs are worn out.I maybe getting confused with the 100:1 different models.Of course this wishywashy noise maybe your interpretation of the pump being on all the time for the only other thing that will make this noise you describe is when the drum relvolves with h2o in the drum.If you start the machine on a wash programme and it fills for 5 secs then after 15 secs nothing happens it is either ,i think,the motor brushes worn out or the pcb up the creek-mega bucks,so physically remove one or both of the brushes to make sure they haven`t worn out-the carbon bits should be ,when new, about 2 inchs long,1/4 inch=worn out to oblivion!=answer to problem

It is possible that the machine does not start off the cycle because there are errors or back feedback from the inputs. For the program to start up the main program controller must initiate the INLET valve to open up and allow water to flow into. If this does not happen then the voltage at the inlet valve must be checked or the fault relates to no voltage from the controller. This means the controller is a suspect.
If the water flows then the flow should be good, if not the inlet valve is bad or there is dirt in the filter. Also check the flow at the inlet of the water line. Once the water comes into the system the WATER LEVEL SENSOR - normally a pressure switch- must activate at the preset/chosen level to give the signal to the program controller to switch on the motor. What is most important for the motor to start functioning is that the door switch must be ON when the door is shut or this will be an error for starting the motor for rinse and wash.
Finally after the wash the drain valve will be activated, the water is allowed to come in to rinse and then finally the dry spin with the drain valve/pump activated so as to drain off all the water from the clothes during the spin.
Make sure that a fault in any of the cycle will relate to the specified action, so check the command from the program module and then the executing device be it the valve or motor or pump.
