Question about Indesit W 123 Front Load Washer
My Indesit washing machine was in the middle of a wash when there was a power cut. The power to the house was resolved but no nothing happens to the washing machine, it is dead. I have checked the fuse and plug, all OK and there is poser going to the machine (it has been checked with a tester).
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.

SOURCE: washing machine blown fuses
Can't promise it isn't the motor, but there are other suspects (maybe more likely, and probably cheaper to fix). Few questions: 1. Do you have a RCCB (also called an RCD, Residual Current Device, Current Operated Earth Leakage Trip etc.) protecting your ring mains? (How to look for one: If your wiring is less than fifteen or so years old, it might be built into the main switch on your fuse box, if a little bit older, you want to look for a separate box - usually grey, about the shape and size of an After-Eights box, with a big switch and a test button on). 2. What stage of the cycle does this happen at? 3. If it always happens during the "wash" phase, can you make it happen at all if you run a series of cold wash cycles? (don't need to have laundry or detergent in the machine to test this). A.

i am a recently retired engineer of 20 years, but this sounds like (based on the info given) a heater element fault, after the machine fills up and agitates a few times the heater should start, check the heater for open circuit, replace if needed, of course it just could be a wire off? if i have helped rate me please

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

It is likely that the pump/filter has blocked thus preventing the water pumping out.
You would need to check and if so unblock it. The location of the pump/filter varies with the brand but sometimes it is behind a flap at the lower front of the machine whilst on others you have to get the back off to locate it.

Many of our newer Indesit Washing Machines have a series of indicator lights, which flash to indicate a possible fault on your installation or simply to let you know a problem occurred whilst you were away from your Indesit Washing Machine.
Pre wash light flashing
Indicates a failure of your Indesit Washing Machine to fill correctly. Check your fill hoses for a blockage, a leak, a kink or to make sure that they are turned on.
Wash light flashing
Indicates that your programme dial has been moved from its original position. Simply returning the wash dial to its original position will restore the light to its original status.
Spin light flashing
Indicates that the Indesit Washing Machine has considered the wash load to be excessively un-balanced. Open up the door of the Indesit Washing Machine, re-distribute the garments and retry the spin to resolve this.
End light flashing
Indicates that the Indesit Washing Machine has reached the end of a wash programme.
Wash, rinse and spin lights all lit at the same time would indicate a possible blockage in your under sink wastes system. Check out the additional informationin our 'My Indesit Washing Machine Will Not Empty'
