Indesit Washing Machines and Washer Dryers

• F10 – No cold fill. Check that the taps are on or if the drain hoses are kinked.
• F11 – No hot fill. The ambient temperature is likely to be below freezing possibly due to the pipes being
frozen. Also check that the taps are on or if the drain hoses are kinked.
• F12 – No mixed fill. It is likely that the water is not turned on at the taps.
• F13 – Check the water supply, inlet valve and hot and cold hose connections.
• F14 – A fault with the water heating has occurred.
• F15 – Water is not being pumped out and a flood condition could occur. Check that the drainage hose is
raised to the recommended minimum height and that the pipe is not blocked.
• F16 – Extremely high water level Disconnect or turn off the water supply and ensure that the water level
does not rise any more.
• F17 – Door not closed properly. Close door firmly at the 3 o’clock position.
• F20/1 – The thermistor resistance has drifted or the temperature scanning sequence is incorrect. The ambient temperature could be below freezing.
• F30/31 – A motor drive problem has occurred. Try running the programme again.
• F40 – Water below protection level during a heat step.
• F41 – Water level detect sequence incorrect.
• F50/51 – Customer language and wash programme have not been saved.
The system will run with default conditions (1000rpm max and English language). Book an indesit service engineer to reprogramme
your product.

    hi i have a indesit wib101 and its stopping on a wash and the rapid wash light flashes and it stops working do you now if this meanes any errers and what it could be thanks ian

    Washing Machine Man Reply:

    My older Indesit fault code book looks at the four lights across the top as 1,2,3,4
    and I believe the rapid wash light is light 2. Which would indicate a problem with the pressure switch or the PCB.

    Fingers cross the pressure switched is just blocked which means it can be repaired without any parts. If it is the PCB and unless you can get a used one really cheaply then it really isn’t worth repairing.

    Hope that helps.

    hi ive got the same problem could you please let me know where i can find the pressure switch

    [Reply]

    wml Reply:

    The pressure switch is usually located on the top of the machine at the side it is round and has a thin rubber hose attached which will lead to the water inlet area of the machine.
    If you would like any more help please post your model number.

    Hi, I have a indesit wil163s washing machine and once i put a hot or cold wash on which ever programme it is taking 3 days to complete a full cycle. The clothes are also smelling once they finish be grateful for your views.

    [Reply]

  3. The smelling part is most likely due to the bacteria build up after being wet for so long and not actually anything to do with the fault.

    It’s a strange fault and difficult to judge. If I was a betting man I’d say its a PCB board fault, I would of said it was the heater but as it does it on cold washers we can rule that out.

    My advise would be to get an engineer out or buy a new one. PCB’s can be expensive.

    Let me know how it goes. Someone else might get the same fault.

    My indesit washing machine wie157s has stopped halfway through a wash and is showing error code f50 the machine is half full of water and I’m not sure its able to drain ! Please help any suggestions would b appreciated .

    [Reply]

    wml Reply:

    Hi there sorry for the late reply,
    The error f50 indicates there is miss communication between the control board and the other parts in the machine.
    This is usually solved by reprogramming the board.
    Unfortunatly this can only be done by a Indesit engineer as they have the software.
    The best thing to do is call them and ask for a years cover as it only works out a little more expensive than their labour charge and the whole machine will be guaranteed for a year.
    There number is 01733 568 989.
    I hope this helps.

    Hi my indesit wixl126 has error code f04. (pressure switch stuck on empty)
    Can you please let me know if there is a simple way to correct this porblem.

    [Reply]

    Washing Machine Man Reply:

    you need to check the pressure switch. this will require the machine to be taken apart.

    if you are unsure I would call out a local engineer. no parts should be required because usually you can clean pressure switches.

    My indesit WIE167 has error code F-05 (pressure switch stuck on full). The door is locked and the machine is full of washing and water. Is there a fix for it? Thanks

    Washing Machine Man Reply:

    you need to check the pressure switch. this will require the machine to be taken apart.

    Though first thing first you need to empty the drum to open the door. the easiest way to do this is to remove the waste hose from the back of the machine and once the hose is below the drum gravity will make the water come out so have a bowl and a towel ready.

    if you are unsure I would call out a local engineer. no parts should be required because usually you can clean pressure switches.

    Hi i have a IWC6165, when the power off switch is pressed all lights go out. Approximatly 1 min later all lights flash and then go off with the exception of the pause/start light which continues to flash.
    I have checked the filter which is clear and tried unplugging for 5 min.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated

    [Reply]

    Washing Machine Man Reply:

    that is odd. unless there could be something else wrong with the machine i would say it has a strong possibility of being a faulty pcb board.

    try leaving the machine unplugged for 24hrs from the wall…
    let me know how it goes.

    Hi, I have a WIE137S…F12 code is flashing (No mixed fill. It is likely that the water is not turned on at the taps)

    I’ve disconnected water pipes from the back of the machine and tested them for water. They both work fine. Could there be a blockage within the machine ?

    Water has got through into the drum cos the clothes are wet. Is there a way of trying to reset the machine ?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated

  11. Sarah says:

    Hi, I have a WIE137S… No error code BUT it flashes “door”

    The red door lock light comes on the machine starts then the after 6 seconds of the water filling the red light goes back out… Then it stops. After a minute or so the same thing happens again. It keeps doing this until the machine is full then continues as normal until it gets into the final stages of the wash the red door lock light goes back off and then the “door” error flashes.

    Any help you can offer would be appreciated. Thanks.

  12. Wes says:

    Hi, we have an Indesit WIE37S which is giving an F-10 code shortly into the wash. The drain pipe appears to be working correctly and I have disconnected the cold water feed at the machine to check the machine has got cold feeding into it. It has and the pressure is good.

    The machine will typically start a cycle and then stop. It sounds like the motor is running but the drum won’t spin. Any ideas you could offer would be gratefully received. We have a toddler and baby and laundry quickly mounts up…

    Many thanks

    I am having problems with my Indesit Wi121, which gives 7 flashes when the dial begins going around. Can you advise what all the flashing error codes mean on this machine? I’ve looked online but can only find the “F” codes, this machine has no LED readout, only flashing lights.

  15. mark says:

    hi my indesit wie167 does not seem to be washing with any hot water anymore. it has a single cold water supply so i guess it has some element and thermostat. if i put a normal cycle on it usually says 1:15mins on the display. it will go thru the wash cycle down to the last min. it will stay on the last minute for hours if left. it does not engage the final spin cycle. if i then manually adjust the temperature down to zero it resets the timer back to about 55 mins and continues to the end. but the washing machine door feels cold throughout. i’ve had the top off for a quick gander but cannot see anything obvious from the top. please help!!

    Hi, I have an Indesit WIL 103 washing machine. The heating cycle ends when the water is luke-warm regardless of the temperature setting. The element measures 30 ohms which is about right for a 1700w unit and I measure 240 volts across the element during the heating cycle. When the water is only mildly warm the voltage to the element is switched off. Can you please propose a solution.
    Many thanks.

    that is a strange problem. what light is flashing… it might help diagnose the fault. but i feel you may require an engineer to diagnose this machine as at this point it could be a number of problems

  24. Stuart says:

    Hi,

    I have an Indesit WITL 120. It is just over 7 years old and has been a work-horse – probably averaging 20-25 loads a week. This was bought and resides in France but I believe the model is/was available in the UK

    I am now getting the following issue – no matter which program or temperature the machine will fill but the main program does not run. The drum does not rotate. I can set the dial to drain and it will drain fine.

    I have checked the belt (which was replaced about 14 months ago) and it is in place and fine. The drum will rotate when turned manually. After filling, there is an ‘attempt’ at turning the drum – the motor fires for a fraction of second and then stops. There is no strain on the motor – it is not being powered after this initial try.

    After a few minutes the door locking light blinks rapidly and the ‘Rincauge Plus” (probably light no.4) blinks more slowly.

    I can’t find any diagnostics for this – any help greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

When it does let me switch the machine on after a few hours of waiting with then smelly washing in machine I have managed to make it run on a ‘rinse’ and then seperate ‘spin’ .. after that it decideds to trip all of my electric again! .. when the machine is on i have noticed the delay timer and door lock is flashing. However as I said, sometimes I cant even switch it on by the mains at all.
