Indesit W 123 Front Load Washer - Answered Questions & Fixed issues

Taking a guess is all that is possible...

The drum bearings have seized.
Something has broken and jammed the drum drive pulley.
Something has become jammed between the washtub and drum.

Your next step is to remove the top of the cabinet and examine the drive, ensure the motor still spins ok and the belt is intact, pulley not broken, etc.

If you find nothing wrong the task becomes fairly major as the cabinet will probably need dismantling in order to remove the front of the washtub for a closer inspection.

if there's water in the tub the door won't open,get a shop vac,stick it to the drain hos and suck out all the water,you didn't send the model number so i don't know what you have,if you have the front panel with the opening on the bottom to clean out the pump you can drain the water out of the black hose to but going to the drain hose is faster,get the drain hose as close to the ground as you can so gravity will also help.when you get the water out you can try unplugging and plugging it back in,if that doesn't open the door,if you have the front panel where you can just remove the bottom panel,take it off,reach up where the door lock is and on the bottom there's a round plastic release that you grab and pull down and it will open the door but don't do this until you get the water out or you'll open the door and water will flow out.if you have a solid front panel remove the top panel and you have to reach down and pull on the door release,a little harder than the bottom panel but doable.when you get the water out the door might open the computer board knows water is in there because of the pressure switch so when you remove the water it might open after you unplug it and plug it back in.also if it's not draining check the pump to see if it's blocked,when you suck out the water if it smells badly you're using to much he soap,you should only be using two tablespoons of he soap that's it,if you use more the washer will stink,your rubber boot will turn black like mold and the soap eats at the spider gear,if that goes it's new washer time,you'll know the drum will bang loudly in the spin cycle.hope this helps you out.

Could be anything but check your water heater element first - prime cause of power tripping. Also check for leaks from the sump into the wash motor / electrics etc Usually manifests as fills, runs for a bit then cuts out as leak starts. Be very careful with electrical safety on this one - water and electricity are a deadly combination. ensure the power if off, and machine unplugged before examining. test for safety after the repair.

PCB has suffered a catastrophic failure due to the power cut, it will need to be replaced. if you have a power cut in the future always turn off your appliances, as the voltage can exceed the appliance recommended voltage. only leave a light on as lights can take the over voltage unless they are led type, you can but power drop sockets that when power is off it turns of the socket off so no power goes thought to the appliance.

I would go to the manufactures website and download the user guide and look in the trouble shooting guide or I would check the water pump to see f there's not an obstruction in the pump preventing the pump from emptying the drum completely as if the water sensor is not telling the machine its empty therefore it cant start again

how would you tell if what capacitor is faulty on the board I would rather seek out a college who is perhaps more used to testing such items as the AC mains is lethal and I would not want to give you any reason to injure your self please be careful eric

sounds like you may have some moisture getting into the electronic panel but because it only happens rarely best not to try to fix. This is normally quite expensive as they need to replace electronic panel and seals around panel, so I would live with it.

unplug it for a few minutes and plug it back in again might be a pain but till you can get it serviced it should delete the fault code and run thru a full cycle. hope this helps a little.
Not a true fix just a work around.

best to you.

I had a problem like this and it turned out to be the hose that carried the water out to the drain was overflowing the drain pipe.
Make sure the P trap in your drain line is open and clear. A plumbers snake, draino, or a high pressure nozzle on your garden hose might help to clear it.

The only quick suggestion I have is to unplug it for several minutes and see if it resets. If not, without any other indicator, the only thing I can think of is the door switch, which should be a fairly easy fix.

is the drum turning round. is it draining at end cycle ? if the motor is spinning is it slow at start turning left then right after a time or does it just spin when its on spin cycle ? can you hear a clicking sound when it about to move or hear a clicking sound and nothing moves ? if you hear a clicking but nothing is moving it could be the switch on the main board has worn out, it could even be the motor but if it does a spin it could just be the switch on the main board. they soldered in on the board you can replace them if you have soldering skills or would like to learn.

Hi if your beko WMA 510 washing machine wont drain or has a spin problem then you have to check the carbon brushes first.

Also check all waste pipes are clear and inspect the pump I have included this video below.

At our website I am doing self diagnostic videos on these beko's as we speak so all tutorials will be in this link below
How to replace Beko Washing Machine Motor Carbon Brushes
you might find this test video helpful but only do it if you have checked the motor
