  2. We have an Indesit IWDC6125 UK washing machine. A few days ago it kicked off the fuse on the switch board and we couldn't open the door. I have managed to open the door from inside and remove the door-lock. I have opened up the lock and it was burned inside. I have ordered a replacement door-lock. I fitted the new lock and after the door is closed the washing machine starts the program (let some water in) for a few second and stop. The other issue is that as soon as you plug in the washing machine the door lock is powered so if you close the door it locks without starting a program.

  4. Hello, Im not a trained engineer but I had similar problem with my machine. It needed new motor brushes. They were easily got from ebay and very easy to fit. Somebody else posted that you would get unusual noises but that never happened with mine. Somebody else said the brushes were only worn half way but so were my old brushes and it was enough to stop the machine going into spin cycle. Hope this helps.
  5. Many thanks Andy - was hoping it would be a simple fix but looks like not the case! Thanks for your advice and taking the time to reply.
  6. Great stuff Iain- many thanks for responding! I'll give that a go tomorrow! Steve Q
  7. The fan is the circular grey object visible at the rear right hand side of the machine once you take the lid off, the hot air ducting leads to it. You'll need a T20 torx bit I think to remove the screws which hold the top cover of the fan, you won't be able to get the fan cover off fully but that doesn't matter, you only need to lift it enough to provide access to the fan blades. I just use a set of tweezers to pull the lint out from between the blades.
  8. Hi all, this thread seemed best for my call for help. I have a Bosch Serie 3 washer dryer (WVG30461GB/01), and am not getting heat from the dry cycle. I found the TOC's which had tripped, but they have continued to do so after being reset, so as per comments in this thread, there must be another problem beyond probably overloading (which might have been the source of the problem!). I would like to check/clear out any lint from the fan, but cannot work out where this is?! The Bosch user manual doesn't seem to even try to explain the inner workings! Any help would be much appreciated as to where I should start. Steve
  9. Hello Andy. I don't see how it could be the pressure system if the washing machine is filling on spin. The pressure system is only involved when the washing machine wants to fill up with water. Then it dictates the amount of water that goes into the machine. On the spin cycle the pressure system only monitors and notifies when all of water has gone. If a fault occurs they are then the washing machine won't spin because it thinks it is still full of water. This is completely opposite to the fault you have got. If the water stops going in when the washing machine is turned off then that rules out a faulty water valve. If it starts to fill with water as soon as the washing machine is powered up but before a cycle is started it would seem to imply that the water valve in question has got a live and neutral supply when it shouldn't have. I know the earth faults and low installation faults can cause some strange behaviour. If the water valve only started taking water once a cycle has been selected and started then it seems like for some reason the valve is being switched on when it shouldn't. This isn't the kind of fault that is likely to be easy to solve. I would recommend getting an engineer.
  10. Hi, My washing machine keeps filling with water when on any program including spin and drain. On a wash cycle it will fill up and then drain and end the cycle early without going through the washing cycle. On spin and drain it will keeps filling water via the drawer but does spin and drain. I can stop at the end and remove the clothes fine but if left it continues to fill up again and drain etc. If I turn the machine off then it stops. From my research this is likely to be an issue with the water inlet valve or a problem with the pressure system. I have checked the hose on the pressure sensor and this seems fine. I have also blown down it into the pressure chamber and can hear the water bubbling. Do you think I need to replace the pressure sensor or do you think it is more likely a problem with the water inlet valve and this needs replacing instead? Or any other idea? thanks in advance Andy

    Bosch WVG30461GB/01 won't lock and start

    ** Exactly same issue ** Hi Georges and everyone on this forum, I have been buying Bosch appliances as I trust their quality until lately when my Bosch washer dryer started giving me issues and is now completely broken down. When searching on google I came across this thread and I have exactly the same problem so thought of asking the options I have to get it fixed. I bought my BOSCH wvg30461gb on 28-Jan-2016 from Currys and the clicking sound started mid 2018 followed by a complete breakdown last week (second week of Jan 2019). Please suggest what I must do. I am hoping Bosch will repair it at no charge - if not then to get it repaired outside myself (suggestions welcome for where you expect good service). Thanks Lynn
  12. Hi there. Yes very strange how it got in. The machine runs but doesn't dry anything so will have to get it fixed. Thanks for the advice.
  13. I am at wits end here folks. I don't know what to do about this washer i had to replace the back support spindle and finally got that done put the drum back together and the heating element was touching the drum reset that to where it ran through its little bracket and still the machine through the t3 code. I then replaced the thurmistor and still it throws the t3 code after waiting about 20 seconds. I don't know what else to do as all the code references from google searches say to replace the thermistor. I did and i know that bad parts come through but i would hope for $40 it wouldn't had been a bad part! PLEASE HELP ME i don't know what else to do! I can give you the model # if it helps also it is an american vs. of the machine!

    Twisted metal strap in drum

    I can’t imagine how anything from inside a dryer could get into the drum. The only entrance into it is where the hot air is blown into the drum. If the filter is damaged btw. Get it replaced ASAP as fluff can build up on the element and the whole thing can catch fire.
  17. I ran a damp old tea towel through it also and it sounded fine. There was no damage to the fabric either
  18. I did a basic strip down this morning There was also a tear in one of the mesh panels in the filter. Understandable if a piece of metal was whizzing around inside. I took out the condenser unit underneath and it looked to be ok. There are screws on the side walls, near the front. One looks to be slightly out of place and a little sign of rust on it already. I wonder if anyone has an image of a new condenser unit? Does it have any metal strap screwed onto it?
  19. Yes appears to be a Hotpoint issue. I haven't taken mine apart yet. Thinking of running it and seeing what happens

    Hotpoint Wmpf 742 not spinning out

    Hi. If the drum turns OK but the washing machine just won't do the spin try this article Washing machine not spinning
  21. My Hotpoint WMPF 742 stopped spinning out yesterday, It's carrying out the wash cycles, but there are no fast spins during any of the cycles. So the washing is left soaked This machine has a spin and pump out cycle which also does on work, the drum simply turns as though it doing a normal way Spin has not been turned off, not fast spinning by selecting any of the spin speeds No warning lights Just not doing any fast spinning Any help / advise most appreciated

    NEFF 6544

    The main PCBs on washing machines are usually at the base of the washing machine. It is unusual for one to cause fusing though. There are lots of other possibilities too. Washing Machine Tripping or Fusing Electrics

    Twisted metal strap in drum

    Both found inside Hotpoint tumble dryers?
  24. I suspect that the fuse keeps blowing on startup because of a capacitor fault. I have taken the lid of the washing machine but can not see where the mother board is to be found. Does anyone know where it is in this machine? Background: WM stopped emptying the drum and did not go into the correct end spin cycle. I found the cause was a small piece of cloth blocking the pump at the drainage point at the base of the machine. I restarted the spin cycle and all was well, until the next morning when I tried to do a new wash. This time the power plug's fuse blows immediately. I think it wouldn't hurt to inspect the capacitors to see if any have blown. This is an old machine but in fairly good condition. My intention is to check if something has burned out and if not replace the machine.
  25. I have had exactly the same thing happen this evening. Found a twisted metal strap, very similar to the one pictured. There was no screw at one end and it was sheared at the other. It was twisted up a lot more than yours. I found it in the drying pulled out of my relatively new Hotpoint dryer. I use a Bosch washing machine, rather than Indesit. Would be interested to know what on earth it is.

    Hoover filter

    Thank you I’ve ordered one from there .
  27. Yes it looks like the right part. It also seems ludicrously expensive. It's not in stock which is why they quote up to 10 days. I would be tempted to thoroughly clean it up and dry it out then refit it with some silicone sealant.
