Indesit F13 error - Burnt fan


Recommended Posts

  • Members

Hello all.

I'm struggling to repair my Indesit IWDD 6105 B ECO UK model washer dryer which displayed F13 error code last time it ran. Since first spotting the error, I have tried following all good advice available online.

I've opened the top lid and undone the heating tunnel. Fan looks to be in bad shape. I suspected the NTC sensor first, but its resistance readings seem close to what others have seen (~20k ohms) and it is responding to rising temperature.

When I tried rotating the fan (while still attached to its motor), it seemed to have quite a bit of friction - maybe it was tightened too close to the tunnel shell, making motor run slower than normal. Barring that, I do not have any line of reasoning for the burnt fan. Also, i can spot lint residue in the fan inlet.

Any help suggesting next steps would be helpful.

If there is a restriction in the fan chamber such as build up of fluff it would hinder the airflow and could cause overheating. Check all the way through into the condenser chamber for blockages.
