Indesit WIXL85 water level


On a normal wash cycle, you will see very little if any water sloshing around, this is quite normal on todays washers.
You shuold see a lot more on the rinse cycle, as it is a higher fill.
It is usual to more less fill the compartment with powder, unless you are only washing a few items, then half fill it.
Hope this helps.

Check the filter which is under the white panel at the front of the machine(the filter is in the lower right hand corner). Unscrew the filter and remove it. Mine was blocked with loads of grease/limescale. I cleared it out and the machine is as good as new again. I cleared the system with half a packet of soda crystals put into the main drum (on its own without any washing in!) and did a wash at 90degrees. Its as good as new now. Good luck. CK

Indesit w93 washing machine fills with water but doesn't start washing


Hi there. I have an old model, the indesit WM12. Never counted the flashing light (yours was 10) but my dial started clicking constantly at the drain part. I called Idesit and they told me it was a blockage in the filter.
The filter they speak of it located, on mine, at the front of the machine at the very bottom on the right. It is a black dial about 3 - 4 inches in diameter. Unscrew that anti-clockwise (a real pain because so much water comes out. My wife and I unscrewed it, filled a baking tray with water, screwed it back up, emptied / substituted tray then same all over again - until empty. Though putting it on drain again and again helped at same time). When I pulled out the filter found a 'colour catcher' sheet in it. We used them first time ever the other day. Removed that, gave filter a wee clean and, hey presto, all is working again. Hope that helps. Jim

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!!

Indesit 1600 WE165 washing machine - filling with water after wash


Doesn't sound like a filter problem to be honest. If the water that's coming in is clean, you're probably looking at a leaky inlet valve. With the machine unplugged from the mains, remove the top, then look for the valves (which are the items that the inlet hoses screw into). One at a time, remove the rubber hoses that connect them to the various bits of the insides of the machine to identify which valve is leaking. New valves are available quite cheaply on the net, and are easy to install. If the machine is filling up with dirty water, it's probably being siphoned back in from the drain. The drain hose mustn't be a tight fit in the standpipe it hooks into and mustn't poke in too far. Also, the standpipe needs to be reasonably tall. Have a look at page 7 of http://imagebank.indesitcompany.co.uk/pdf/service/HBWM81.pdf - it's a manual for a different model, but the drainage requirements will be the same. A.
