Question about Indesit W 123 Front Load Washer
After wash cycle has been completed and clothes emptied, the drum fills with some water within a couple of hours. I can't find the manual and am told that problem may be to do with filter and that it may need cleaning. If this is the cause, I am not sure how I go about removing the panel at the bottom edge of the machine. Please advise if you have a suggestion as to the possible cause and a remedy for. Many thanks in advance. Marion
Doesn't sound like a filter problem to be honest. If the water that's coming in is clean, you're probably looking at a leaky inlet valve. With the machine unplugged from the mains, remove the top, then look for the valves (which are the items that the inlet hoses screw into). One at a time, remove the rubber hoses that connect them to the various bits of the insides of the machine to identify which valve is leaking. New valves are available quite cheaply on the net, and are easy to install. If the machine is filling up with dirty water, it's probably being siphoned back in from the drain. The drain hose mustn't be a tight fit in the standpipe it hooks into and mustn't poke in too far. Also, the standpipe needs to be reasonably tall. Have a look at page 7 of http://imagebank.indesitcompany.co.uk/pdf/service/HBWM81.pdf - it's a manual for a different model, but the drainage requirements will be the same. A.
