Question about Indesit W 123 Front Load Washer

1 Answer

Indesit W1A 111 front load W/M

The red led light still flashes after cycle has finished, dial turned to off position,door lock opens and washing removed, door closed, light continues to flash and now has to be turned off at mains. it doesn't flash with any other led light, just alone.
Any ideas please, I have run it through other cycles no joy, and I have turned off at mains for 'reboot', no joy, turned off overnight and plug removed, still no joy. Help needed, thank you.

    Thanks kjmac, as long as it still washes I don't care too much. It's only 7 days out of it's year warranty!!!



    I was going to get 'a man' out to fix it but the cost is over £100...If it doesn't hurt anything I'll carry on regardless.

    Many thanks.

    I have the same problem, I started the machine by mistake and tried to stop the machine by turning the dial to off position and switching it off without thinking last week, since then the door lock light has flashed, I have had this once before and as I paid an insurance they came out and replaced the electronic pcb (circuit board) inside, as the warranty is out now, I have searched google and managed to find a pcb here

    http://www.emwelec.co.uk/html/Indesit-WI...

    at £40 plus postage or £50 if you do not return your original pcb, but as the machine still seems to be working I am reluctant to buy a pcb, even though this is the best option if you have someone who can fit it for you for free (as I will do ours) If you have any more info on the problem could you please let me know.

The machine door wont open after it finish the wash cycle


There should be a LOCK ICON with an LED to tell you whether the Front Load door is locked or unlocked.

If the machine door wont open after the wash cycle, the dryer function or the drainage function hasnt completed.

What you can try is just choose the dryer function after the completed wash cycle if the problem arises again.

IF that doesnt work, then look at bottom of the machine; there should be a flap present which you generally open up to get to the manual drainage valve.. you just pull that open and drain any leftover water .. After the water recedes.. the LOCK icon should be off and you can then open the front load door

Flashing lights


There is a Light Flashing on my Indesit Washing Machine


Many of our newer Indesit Washing Machines have a series of indicator lights, which flash to indicate a possible fault on your installation or simply to let you know a problem occurred whilst you were away from your Indesit Washing Machine.


Pre wash light flashing
Indicates a failure of your Indesit Washing Machine to fill correctly. Check your fill hoses for a blockage, a leak, a kink or to make sure that they are turned on.

Wash light flashing
Indicates that your programme dial has been moved from its original position. Simply returning the wash dial to its original position will restore the light to its original status.

Spin light flashing
Indicates that the Indesit Washing Machine has considered the wash load to be excessively un-balanced. Open up the door of the Indesit Washing Machine, re-distribute the garments and retry the spin to resolve this.

End light flashing
Indicates that the Indesit Washing Machine has reached the end of a wash programme.

Wash, rinse and spin lights all lit at the same time would indicate a possible blockage in your under sink wastes system. Check out the additional informationin our 'My Indesit Washing Machine Will Not Empty'

Welcome to Fixya.
Try holding the Start/cancel button in for at least 2 seconds.
If there is another lamp flashing at the same time as the door lamp, then you will have to call an engineer.

Indesit wia111 stuck on spin cycle


OK - Try this:-

1. Position the dial on number 0 (off) and then unplug from the wall.
2. After at least 24 hours plug back in - hopefully the thing should have reset.
3. This is really important. Select a wool wash program (No 9) and allow it to complete the entire wash until the door lock light starts flashing to say it's finished.
4. Turn the dial back round to position 0 and all LEDs should go out.

That's it - The control board is reset and all should be well

In order to prevent re-occurance, try to avoid canceling programs mid-cycle. It's also a good idea to switch the dial to number 0 and switch the machine off at the wall when not in use if at all possible.

Please let me know if this works for you :)

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

It does not open


turn the machine off at the mains, after two minutes the door should release from the auto lock, but your pcb (printed circuit board) is knackered start saving.
