Indesit Wd12 - Can't Reset Programme

Recommended Posts

Looks like I'm not the only one here with a similar problem! Programme 8 had just finished & it went into the Rinse cycle but I stopped it manually because of a weird noise such as car keys making a rattle in the drum. (That turned out to be a pen-knife.) Now can't reset the programme. I Rang Indesit's "speedy" hotline but after 15 mins still can't get it right.

I was told to turn Programme Selector knob to any Stop/Reset, wait 5 seconds, then turn knob to the Draining symbol, another wait, machine should be reprogrammed. The flashing red light which should disappear in favour of a slow-flashing light, doesn't - it stays fast-slashing. Any ideas would be most gratefully received!

Try unplugging the washing machine, then after a while do the same thing they suggested. To reset an Indesit washing machine if the dial is clicking round -

  • Turn it off
  • Move the control knob to a dot (an off position)
  • Turn it back on
  • After several seconds, turn it off again
  • Turn the selector to a spin position
  • Turn it back on
The washing machine should now drain the water and spin, when it turns off you should be able to use it. If this doesn't work, count the number of flashes which indicate a fault code and report it to your repairman.
