Indesit Iwc 6145 15 Minute Cycle Problem


Recommended Posts

Hi, I hope someone can help. Its a bit of an odd problem, as the washing machine 'does' work!

My washing machine has an express cycle (number 9 on the dial) that is supposed to be 15 minutes long. However when I choose that cycle it lasts as long as a long cycle (probably 70 to 90 minutes)

Im really not sure why this could be, but its fustrating as I would like to use this cycle fairly regularly, but its not an option.

In all other respects the washing machine seems to work ok, although I generally only use one other cycle (number 3 on the dial) so dont really know if any of the other cycles work as they should.

Hope you can help!

It is indeed a weird one. Everything that should affect a wash programme should affect most others too. When it takes 70 - 90 minutes, what is it actually doing most of that time?

Hi, thanks for your reply! I have not watched it constantly, but It appears to be doing a normal wash, so there are the usual periods of washer filling, entering the powder compartment, wash, rinse, drain and spin. Pretty much a normal wash, apart from the fact it takes MUCH longer than it should!

I have been using this cycle for a while, always assuming it only took 15 mins, but usually started the cycle just before going out, so its only recently that i realised it has been taking much longer!

Im now beginning to wonder if the washer actually only does one cycle (almost like a default wash) and the program dial where you choose which cycle you want, doesnt actually work, or the inside parts are 'stuck' on once cycle!

It's a long shot but worth checking out, if it sees to fill with water a lot more often than you;d expect or lots of times for short bursts make sure it isn't siphoning Fills and empties at same time
