Indesit IWDC6125S not working

Recommended Posts

Have gone through nearly everything with this problem, there was all flashing lights on machine (no LCD display) checked pump line for objects, checked motor carbon brushes (not worn), checked module board, no scorch marks and capacitor is not bulging (faulty), checked pressure switch. Put water in the drum and set to cycle, pumps out water and then nothing, no lights flashing, just nothing. If you can let me know if this problem is fixable or I will just buy a new machine, thanks.

It's usually not a good sign if all the lights are flashing. They are designed to produce error codes which sometimes involves flashing selected lights but not designed to flash all the lights. It can be caused by a pcb failure or potentially even a connection fault somewhere. Not something I would recommend pursuing to be honest.

Thanks Andy, I have done this again, 

Unit had all flashing lights displayed (no LCD), cleaned water outlet pipe, checked connections, checked pressure switch, checked motor and carbon switches, checked drum free to rotate and no debris. Set to spin only and pump comes on and pumps water out, then nothing, no lights flashing just not continuing cycle. Checked module board for scorch makes and if capacitor is faulty (No bulging). Checked motor for damage (coils), everything seems fine.

Set to spin cycle and pump comes on and then the drum rotates (motor working) and looks as if getting to end of cycle but then does nothing, cycle not ended yet for spin. Have put the machine on pause and start again and it does nothing, still waiting. Was going to replace machine but if its something that can be fixed?

Don't know if the fault is in the module board as spin cycle started but hasn't ended. People replace machines that probably could have repaired, just want to check first, thanks again for reply.

 

Paul

If it is stuck on spin cycle and not turned off it sounds like a pcb fault. Any other fault should cause the pcb to abort the cycle or at least switch off after the normal time. However, I would not advise fitting one as they are expensive and there's no guarantee it will fix everything.
