After putting in a wash, the dial continuously span and the light flashed 10 times then paused, 10 times and paused etc.
I cleaned the filter and removed a 5p coin, I have tried resetting to the dot but this has no effect. I have looked at the hot and cold water pipes (These work) I have checked the black outlet pipe from the machine (no blockages).
The dial just keeps spinning.
Any clues as to error code 10?

Re: WD12 Indesit washer/dryer
When the cycle doesn't advance, it's probably the timer or a cold-water supply problem:
Timer- If your washing machine fills with water and begins agitating, but the timer won't advance. Then you need to replace the timer.
Water supply problem- If water doesn't enter the machine when you start the process- check water entrance pipe, myaybe it was bend (if you have there a tap - see it is open).
Check that water entrance valve works (it is an electromagnet valve,loocated at the pipe's enterance to the machine).
If it doesn't work, test that it get power. In case it doesn't get power, it seems that the problem is with the timer unit. In case it get power and dosen't work - You can easyly open the valve and clean it (from scale or other dirt). Be aware you should disconnect the power cable from machine before doing it !!!!!
Check as well for valve's coil resistance. In case you have no resistance measurement - you should replace for a new valve.

this is no easy job and you will need a copy of the work-shop manual; sometimes they can be downloaded of the internet. There are no real specialist tools, but im telling you now there will be a lot of very red knuckles .good luck.adrian
these machines have a memory built into the pcb's which means that if they are switched off or there is a powercut etc they will just carry on from where they were in the cycle as soon as they next power up. if there is a black dot on the timer settings turn the dial to it then switch machine on and this should reset it for you after a few seconds. if this does not work count how many times the doorlock light flashes as this is a fault analysis code they will usually flas then pause for a second then flash again and repeat this sequence until a longer pause (3 seconds) then the sequence starts over.
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
hi there first of all check your filter located at the front of the machine for blockages as this is a comon fault, failing that next time the dial clicks round count the amount of times the red light flashes before it does a pause then starts again, and let me know how many flashes it does as this corasponds to a fault code
