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.

    My Indesit IWDC 6125 keeps tripping the MCB in the consumer unit.
    I’ve disconnected the connections to the motor, the heater, and the pump and checked to see if the circuitry is OK, all seems fine. I cannot see any evidence shorting or burnt wiring.
    I would welcome some suggestions.

  16. Rob says:

    Hi, firstly, thank you for taking time to answer the queries on this page. It is a helpful resource.

    Secondly, I have a WIXL 163 which has developed a fault. The unit appears to be frozen with the 4h led constantly on. I have tried unplugging and leaving for a period of time but whenever I power up, it remains with just the 4h led on. No amount of button pressing or dial switching provokes any change.

    Do you have any ideas? Is it likely to be a pcb issue?

    We have a Indesit washing machine model IWD5123. We do not get any fault code showing but the machine simply stalls after the wash, We have checked the filter and it is clean, the waste pipe is not restricted but does the machine does not empty, it just stalls, there is also a drain setting on the selector but that does not respond.
    Any clues would be welcome.

  38. darren brown says:

    my indesit iwde7145s washer starts it cycle, fills, then stops and error code f13 comes on and all lights flash? please help

  39. Gettinbetter says:

    F-10 error code, as you have probably checked is a ‘no cold feed’ error. If you have checked that you have turned on the (after you checked it)…then remove the top end of the cold inlet feed pipe and see if there is any obstruction at the machine socket. There may be a filter or flow restrictor just inside the threaded section, which can get clogged/blocked. If this is ok then verify that there is water actually coming into the detergents compartment when you run the machine on.
    If there is no water running into the machine then it may be the solenoid valve has no power supply, or is defective.
    The “motor running but the drum won’t spin” sounds like the belt has come off or is defective.

    Indesit wd12x washer-dryer

    I have an integrated Indesit 12X uk washer-dryer. Been working great never had any problems till today when it was finishing the wash cycle in the final fast spin and we heard a loud bang and a then grinding/grating noise. Luckily as it was in final spin could just turn off then open it and take out the washing. Had a quick look and set it empty just to spin cycle, started up ok at slow spin speed/low gear then would just trip and would not accelerate and the dial would start turning . Any ideas? red light flashes 3 times
