Question about Indesit Washing Machines
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
My daughter has a cold fill only Indesit so I can tell you without sending my other guidance notes!
1 is for pre-wash (LHS), 2 is main wash (middle and bigger) and you are right with 3; that's for the conditioner.
I would suggest giving the whole detergent dispenser a good clean. Here are my complete, general, pre-typed (!) guidance notes. Note the second way to remove the dispenser in particular---->
Remove the complete drawer. To do this you will have to do one of the following-
(I am having to guess some of the following!)
Once out identify which tray is for the conditioner- the others are simply 'chutes' and open-ended.
It will normally have some sort of cover over it which you must remove to expose the little stuck up pipe/tube. On some models there is just a small individual cap over the tube. The tube is down which the conditioner and water should siphon. It is likely to be blocked by 'gunge'- a mix of powder and conditioner. The whole of the tray, particularly this pipe and the bit which fits over it, must be completely clean and clear for it to operate correctly. It is worthwhile checking fairly regularly.
If this hasn't helped I suggest you pull the dispenser a little way out, start a main wash and see if water pours into the main wash tray as it should or if it just trickles in. If it does the latter there is a problem with the water inlet valve- I presume it's a cold fill only? This requires a service call ;-0(
