Indesit PWE91472WUK Problem

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

Really hope someone can help me.

I have an Indesit PWE91472WUK washing machine, it has served my very very well in the years I've had it.

The first time I encountered a problem was last December, I believe it was an F05 fault code which worked itself out, it happened a few times, but when the engineer came out it almost magically disappeared as no repairs were undertaken and I've not had any problems until last week. 

This time it's a different fault code - F06, which going by the manual and the general consensus online is a door lock fault, which would coincide with the issues I've been having...

As soon as you close the door the red padlock light would come on, which means the door is locked, which it would be & I'd be unable to open it unless the plug is removed from the mains and the machine resets.

Despite this, I tried to put a load on and after about 30 seconds of whirring and thinking about what it wants to do I get the error code flashing constantly on the display, I've tried changing the door interlock and have used 2 different ones and still no success. Since opening the machine to change the interlock I can smell some kind of burning coming from the machine and now not only does the code flash, the whole display itself flashes on and off.

I'm really at a loss as what could be the issue and would greatly appreciate any assistance of insight into the problem

Kind regards

If the washing machine doesn't take in water and starts turning the drum a few times and there's a smell of burning it could be that the pressure system is faulty and the heater is coming on with no water inside which of course is very dangerous. It could be a blocked pressure system or a fault somewhere else.
