    have exactly the same problem, it used to do it now and again but now it wont work at all! my machine is 3 years old but i have only used it for 1 year. i had an engineer out in the first six months, he was no use as he told me it was my fault because i was overloading the machine, which was a load of rubbish! i may as well buy a new one as its going to cost to much to repair.not an indesit tho!!!!!!

    My Wil 103 has the same problem with lights 2 and 4 flashing. An engineer diagnosed the fault as a main board error and therefore not ecconomical to repair. Machine was 18 months old and used once a week only. Last Indesit product I will ever buy!

You will need to unplug the machine at the mains, give it two minutes and the auto door lock will release your duvet, however start saving the pennies as your pcb is knackered and you'll be looking at about £200 to fix it

You will find a broken bra wire rusty bits some coins etc inside the pump many people overlook to take the pump out the machine check for corrosion as the cruddy plastics their housings are made of crack when such items end up in the pump its fine to take them out but at least inspect the pump motor and housing for signs of damage that allow small amouts of water like spin cycle that are under more preasure the chance to enter the pump motor side and in a sly way

you can get to a state where you use the machine once a week it will do a full cycle if you dont catch this prob in time it wipes out the pump triac on the controller board easy to fix either way

but check out your pump fully and clear all errors after fixing the problem, by resetting the machines some what with most stupid brain

with no exception handeling at all most machines give no real indication of the actual fault . and guide you to this and that

This machine got also 2 hidden led's on the control panel, you must remove the top plate and see, there should lit up one or two led's on the control panel, but they are masked by the front panel, if you look down from top should see them. let us know which one is flashing in addition to door lock light. Usually gona flash the mid one, indicating an F08 error which means stucked heater relay / pressostat, but in reality in most cases means insulation problem of the heating element,

Try to power off you unit for about 5-10 minutes then plug it back in. Did the technician touch the control board?

Forgot the combination to the lock. Is there a way to retrieve the combination or return it to its factory default combination 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

The instructions below are copied from the programming instructions (page 11):

(The "out of box" factory default will be restored)
1. At the back of the lock, remove the screw at the bottom of
the lock housing and remove the cover.
2. Take out the battery pack and remove battery power by disconnecting
the battery pack.
3. Plug in the (provided) male shunt connector into the yellow
wire female connector.
4. With shunt connector connected, re-connect the battery
pack. The lock will immediately sound 3 short beeps (if
these 3 beeps are not heard, then restart at step 2).
5. The lock will then sound more slow beeps, 1 beep for every
second it takes to clear the memory.
6. After a few more seconds, the LED will slowly alternate between
flashing red and green--disconnect the yellow wire
shunt connector.
7. The LED will continue to slowly flash green and red for 25
seconds. To enroll Function Cards, proceed immediately
as follows:
• With the lock LED slowly alternating between flashing
red and green, present the Function Card #1
to the lock. The lock will sound 5 slow beeps.
• The lock LED will flash green rapidly. The lock is
ready to enroll the Function Cards.
• Re-present Function Card #1 to the lock. The
lock LED will flash green then red, with two beeps
(indicating the card was enrolled successfully).
• Present Function Card #2 to the lock. Again, the
lock LED will flash green then red, with two beeps.
• Continue to present, in order, Function Cards 3-
9. Each time a new Function Card is presented, the
lock LED will flash green then red, with two beeps.
After the 9th Function card is presented, the lock LED will flash
green twice, sound two beeps, and will then remain silent,
ready for use. Note: If the lock continues to beep after presenting
the 9th Function Card, check to verify that the yellow
wire shunt is disconnected.
Note: If you only wish to use the first 3 Function Cards, simply
allow the lock to "time out" after 30 seconds.

Here is the link to the complete instructions, in PDF form. You will need Adobe Acrobat or equivalent to view them:

Good luck-and please provide feedback if this helps!

2002 bmw 530i key does not (remotely) unlock doors or trunk but they work fine manually.

Unlock vehicle. Enter vehicle. Close driver's door. Switch ignition ON and OFF. Remove ignition key. Press and hold unlock button. Press lock button briefly 3 times within 10 seconds keeping unlock button depressed. Release unlock button. Some models: LED flashes slowly for 10 seconds. Some models: Central locking system locks and unlocks rapidly to indicate correct programming. Repeat above procedure if central locking system does not work and LED does not flash or LED flashes continuously.

Indesit WIDL 106 wont start -ON/OFF-Door Led Flashes rapidly

It is a defectiv controller pcb. I think the eeprom on the controller pcb lost its program (happens often on Indesit machines).

The only solution I know is to change the controller pcb, - not a cheap solution.
I have the same problem with WIDL 106.
