• 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.

    we have checked filter and pumps but still doing it
    any ideas please ?

    Hi, I have a indesit wil1235 1200 washing machine, macchine has been playing up on me as it switches all of my electic off by the fuse board, i have changed the fuse within the plug, have tried different sockets. 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.

  10. mark bedford says:

  11. Kosar says:

    Hi my washing machine has a code f50 the door is in lock and I can’t open it as the machine is full of water it’s a indesit one please could u advise


    Vassilis Reply:

    Hi there, you may have a filter blockage.
    Try to open the filter which is on the front below panel,
    easily… since the drum is full with water.
    After the water is all out & drum empty, check this filter
    and remove all the dust or other objects.
    Put the filter back and restart a cycle. Hope I helped.


  12. Vassilis says:

    Hi, my WIXL 85(EU) washing machine works fine with all programs, except programme 4.
