Washer pumps but half the time it won't spin unless you give the basket a little push. I use a small magnet to keep the lid relay closed. Once I give the basket a little push, the washer starts to...

Quite likely the spin motor is a capacitor start type motor and has a capacitor to start it (by placing a winding slightly out of phase with the rest of the motor in turn encouraging the movement of the motor). When it reaches about 200 RPM the capacitor is disconnected and runs without it.
Maybe the start capacitor is faulty or the internal switch/electronic control is faulty?

2000 L series sadan wipers work in normal operation zone but when you shut them off they stop half way up the window if the car is running with the wipers off and you push them down they kick on and return...

you need a new wiper motor, the return to rest position circuitry is bad. lucky for you that the whole assembly can be removed from outside the car. i know there are videos of folks doing this on youtube and i have left written instructions a few times on here. but a picture is worth a thousand words.

thing to bear in mind is make sure the switch is in OFF position before you start and find and obey the OFF position stamping on the linkage when you attach the arm to the wiper motor. you will see what i am talking about when it is out and in your hands.

Indesit widl102 washer dryer has 2 led lights flashin

unplug it for a few minutes and plug it back in again might be a pain but till you can get it serviced it should delete the fault code and run thru a full cycle. hope this helps a little.
Not a true fix just a work around.

best to you.

Why wont my machine start drying?

I called Whirlpool on 08706008989. The machine can only dry half a load of washing at a time. At the end of the washing cycle, the Programme dial should be at either the sun or half sun symbol. Remove half the washing, set the drying time via the drying time dial and press the 1/2 Load Dryer button - Voila dry clothes!
