Indesit Iwd 7145 Problem Please Help

Recommended Posts

Hi i am new to the form so firstly hello!

Now, we have an issue with our indesit washing machine.

Usually we turn the machine on, set it for a spin and at some stage during whatever cycle it is working through it all cuts off. Leaving the wash sometimes soaked in water, other times half filled. It appears to be at random intervals.

I have checked the usuals, i.e. The filter which is all clear and clean, the outlet hose, again all clear and gave the machine a good clean throughout.

We found a temp work around in which if we set it to a cold wash it would usually work. However this is also failing now too.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The symptoms are unfortunately too random to get a strong idea of possibilities. The fact it usually has water inside implies a pumping problem but this should only be pursued if it only ever stops on rinses and spins. If it does it during the wash cycle (apart from right at the end when it needs to pump the wash water away) it can't be. You need ot literally sit down and watch the washer and take not of exactly what it does with times and exactly what it was doing just before it stops - then when it stops what happens (any lights on, flashing?)

That way an engineer can try to work out the main suspects. If it always stops just after it's started pumping the water out for example then it's definitely an emptying fault somewhere - won't pump out the water properly
