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.

    Dear all,
    We have a washing/drying machine indesit model IWDD6145 and it is giving us an error E05. When we put the machine working sometimes it does all the cycle but other times it stays with the clothes completely wet and the drum is full of water. Could you please give us a clue of what is happening with it?
    Thank you very much,
    Best regards

  5. Reklaw Nehpets says:

    Hi I have a wil163 washing machine which does not spin at the end of the programme and the lock light flashes red and the left hand timer light flashes. The owners manual says this is an abnormality but does not help me diagnose or repair the problem. Can anyone help?

  6. Justin says:


    I have an Indesit WIBB 111 which seems to have just stopped altogether. My toddler was turning the switches during a wash yesterday and now the machine has stopped…. It did drain eventually and unlock so I got the load out and finished by hand; but even restting on the same original program has done nothing to resolve the issue. It seems to want to start as usual for a second or two, then stops letting water in and flashes doing nothing else. I have taken the top off and found the pressure valve and taken it off, blown and sucked through the open valve tube and can hear a diaphragm kind of noise. Does that mean it’s OK? reassembled, cleaned out a very mucky filter at the base front, checked all hoses. Still nothing. ANY ADVICE????

  7. Paul says:

    I have a indecit ICW8148 Washing machine. when the cycle is started its fine but when gets to number 12 near the end of wash the washing maching stops running. The 4 function lights then flash above the buttons and the clothes are left in a puddle of water. Thanks

  8. Valerie says:

    I have an Indesit WIL153 1500 spin speed. It’s taking more than 3 hours for a normal number 3 30degree wash, I’m sure it used to be much quicker than this, any ideas?

  9. Kelly Weaire says:

    Hello, I have an Indesit IWC6125s Washing Machine, when I switch it on and press start the green lights come on as normal, the red door locked light comes on and it begins to fill with water, all good.

    Then the machine stops and the red light flashes, it then does nothing more and sits in this state until I switch off at the mains. I then drain via the filter at the bottom, put back on and it will do exactly the same all over again if I try to get it to run a cycle.

    What is the problem as there is no fault code, just the same symptoms every time.

    Many thanks

    Hello, I recently purchased Indesit Washing machine XWE91483. The machine worked fine for 3-4 weeks. I now keep getting the same error code. Not sure if its FOS or FO5 but the machine will not drain. I’ve checked the manual and troubleshooting guide, I’ve checked the pump for signs of blockages, the outlet pipe for kinks or blockages etc. The machine will work for a few days after doinf this but the same problem keeps reoccurring.

  19. Paula Greaves says:

    Yesterday my ‘Indesit’ WIA 101 went into a VERY rapid spin and refused to stop or move on to the next stage of the programme. It was quite scary! I turned it off at the mains supply. Is this something that can be repaired?

  20. peter p says:

    i have replaced water heater element in my indesit washing machine mod no iwme12uk everything was ok but now its flashing (timer green) on the front panel i have found the error code is f08. why is this??

  21. Stuart says:


    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.

  24. Dave says:

  35. emily says:

    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.

  40. Vassilis says:

    Hi, my WIXL 85(EU) washing machine works fine with all programs, except programme 4.
    It drains the water after the 1st rinse and keep spinning forever..
    Also, the led of wash & rinse are on, shouldn’t be on the rinse led only? Thx

  41. Vassilis says:

    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.
