Question about Indesit Washing Machines

1 Answer

I have a second hand omega 1100, ecoultra washing machine with no manual. I need to know the weight limits on loading, if they are wet or dry weights, and if there are limitations on the programming. Every now and again it doesn't spin, could I be overloading it, does it have a cut out due to that. ?

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Manual first-You will need to type into your search engine/web browser '(make model number) washer manual' and you should be presented with a number of sources from which you can either download for free or have to pay a nominal amount. You could also try the manufacturer's web site direct ;-0)
Occasionally not spinning-
I would gently suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor/pump lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete and general guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor-
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.
If these actions have not cured the problem, it could be the control board OR the main motor. Motors will show weaknesses when commanded to spin.
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
John C.

Hello joherriott - I am happy to assist you. First, the model number that you have provided me seems to be invalid, I will need the correct model number (and serial number if you have it) to better address the issue at hand. The serial tag is typically located on the upper front, as you open the door. Thank you.

Yes , it is quite possible that a load exceeding the limit of the washer can damage the belt or the drive of the washer and so it is important that a first hand observation is most important before we can speculate on the issue.
Please remove power and check manually on the motor and drive, now connect and with precaution check the drive , if there is power on motor or if there is a failure from the program controller unit.

Just bought a speed queen top loader model LWS 17


that top cap/container on top of the agitator is for fabric softner if you use it. As to why it wont spin possible overload or if you bought a second hand machine could be a belt or gearbox ??
Suggest you put the detergent in the bowl, the fabric softner on top of the agitator, drop the clothes in till it's full not pushing down on the clothing - the weight rating of the washer is for wet clothes weight not dry clothes. If this doesn't get you going in the right direction then call someone who knows what their doing, it's too good a machine to risk stuffing it if you dont know what your doing

I need an instruction manual for an Omega WD 1052 washer, please


I have searched everywhere as well, and no luck. I did find a bit of information on it which I have pasted below -- it might help a bit if you want to play around with it.
I would also suggest reading manuals from other wash/dryer machines to get an idea how they work--then maybe you can figure yours out by just pushing the different buttons and seeing what the display says. (At the end of this post, I have pasted a link to a different Omega washer/dryer -- perhaps you could skim it and see if it is at all similar to yours.)

Information About the Omega WD1052.2 washer dryer
THIRTEEN PROGRAMME:
The WD1052.2 is sequentially segmented into thirteen rotary positions for both easy and logical programme selection and for the quick identification of programme progression.

Choose from one of three wash sequences:
Programmes one through five are for the heavily soiled, more colour fast fabrics and daily wear.

Programmes six through to ten look after the slightly soiled, synthetics and for delicate items.

Woollens are exclusively washed on programmes eleven through to twelve.

CONDENSER DRYING:
The WD1052.2 can automatically dry a half a load of washing at the end of the wash programme provided the half load button is selected and a drying time is set on the centre control dial.

At any time the WD1052.2 can be regarded as an independent dryer, that is, a wash programme does not have to proceed into the drying stage. An example would be drying damp clothing or toweling from the bathroom. Simply choose a STOP position after either 5 or 10 on the programme dial. On the centre dial choose either full heat, the pink zone, or half heat, the green zone.

Another useful variation of the WD1052.2 is the ability to choose final spin only followed automatically by condenser drying. Having completed a hand wash, for instance, simply load the clothing and select final spin, 5 or 10 with the half load button selected and drying time set.

Whenever the WD1052.2 is in the drying mode the load can be easily accessed at any time via the porthole. The drying will automatically resume once the door is reshut.

Specifications:
Freestanding or Built-in
5kg (11lb) dry weight Capacity
2.5kg (5 1/2 lb ) dry weight condenser
13 Programmes
40 minute Fast Wash
Special universal 2B programme
Dedicated woollens cycle

Need a manual for whirlpool washer/dryer awz410 1000


Make sure the half load / drying button is pushed in also and the drying time set.
Do you know whether the temperature dial controls the washing or drying cycle. Have shrunk too many jumpers. Thanx

Wet towels & blankets stacked on working dryer


This won't affect drying time unless the load is so heavy it causes the cabinet to warp and disturb the door seal. If you haven't had any problem with this so far you can probably keep doing it. (The machine is designed to support the weight of a wet load in the drum, and should have some safety margin. But why not invest in a roll-around laundry cart like you find at laundromats and keep the wet load there until the dryer is clear?) You might need to be more concerned about rust starting on the top of the cabinet if the enamel is scratched, since it's not usually subjected to wet loads being piled there. You should also check your vent pipe frequently to make sure it stays clear with all the drying you do. Clogged lint screens and vent pipes will definitely lengthen drying time.
