Indesit IWDC6125 not washing.

Recommended Posts


My washing machine, which has had no problems before, has stopped working. When I press the start button (after the machine has been turned on) nothing happens except the light next to the 3h symbol goes green. If I press start again that light flashes (which means it has paused I think). I've made sure the door is closed properly but bar that I don't know what to do.

I literally no nothing about washing machine at all! I've attached a picture.

Please help! Thanks!

Hello there. This fault could be caused by many different things. It ideally wants troubleshooting by an engineer with access to test meters etc. Commonly this fault can be caused by a faulty door lock, but it could also be caused if the door lock is okay but a connection or mechanical problem on the door catch prevents it being operated properly. On Indesit washing machines they can also go completely dead but with some lights working if the motor goes open circuit. That is most commonly caused by worn carbon brushes. But of course it could be various other things. I have an article here which is quite comprehensive but ultimately I cannot produce a complete guide to how to fix a washing machine so it just gives general advice which may be helpful in deciding how serious something is or helpful to someone who already has experience at repairing things Washing Machine Won’t Start
