Indesit WI10 washing machine won't turn on reliably?


Recommended Posts

Many many thanks if you can point me in the right direction :

My Indesit WI10 has stopped functioning. If I leave it in the on position (with no lights lit) it will start the cycle randomly after a couple of hours. Sometimes completing the cycle successfully. Alternatively if I hit the side of the machine the "on" light comes on, and sometimes stays on (the machine then works) and sometimes goes off again (the machine then not working). Help !!!

Hmm. Sounds like a poor connection somewhere. Just make sure it's not on the wall socket before anything else. Preferably try it in a different socket.

Hi Andy
Thanks for your reply, no it's not the wall socket, nor the motor, nor the pressure switch, nor the door switch.  I've taken each of these off the machine and hitting the side has always the same effect - the "on" light comes on but for a second.  What I haven't managed is to remove the bulb of the "on" light.  Is there a trick for demounting this?
Again many, many thanks for your time.
Lucy
