But even modern technology can have setbacks. And Indesit washing machines can have a range of common problems. Get answers to some frequently asked questions here…

Flashing Lights

What does it mean when all lights flashing on Indesit washing machine?

Indesit washing machine flashing lights are designed to flash when there’s a specific fault. if the wash, rinse, and spin function lights are all flashing at the same time this indicates a potential obstruction in the drain or waste pipe. Worn carbon brushes can also cause this to happen.

Why is the pre-wash light flashing?

When your appliance is unable to fill properly this light will flash. Reasons for this fault can be due to blockages, damage, or leaks in the fill hose pipe. Or an issue with the hose connections.

Why is the spin light flashing?

If your washing machine detects an unbalanced or excessive wash load this will cause the spin light to flash. New machines will try to redistribute the load – but you may have to do this manually.

Error Codes

What do Indesit fault codes mean?

Look at a selection of error codes and their meanings here. A comprehensive list will be detailed in your manufacturer’s guide:

  • F01 – a fault with the electronic circuit board means that some or all functions won’t be selectable
  • F02 – a motor circuit problem will prevent the drum from rotating properly during the wash cycle
  • F03 – a temperature sensing fault will stop heating on wash or dry settings
  • F05 – waste pipe blockage or pump issue cause the door not to open, or open with water staying in the drum
  • F06 – door lock fault causing the door being unable to open or close and the machine not to start
  • F07 – a heating circuit fault will instigate pausing partway through a wash cycle


What is the cause of my Indesit washing machine leaking?

A brand-new washing machine will be tested as part of the manufacturing process. And a small amount of water may be left in the bottom. If the leak persists further investigations will need to be carried out – the fill and drain hose for starters.

The mains plumbing or the appliance connection may be at fault. And you should also check that the washing machine is sitting level.

Why does my washing machine smell?

The most common causes for unpleasant odours are constant washing at low temperatures which cause undissolved detergents and bacteria to build up and smell. Other issues may relate to a drain hose connection under the sink – if the waste pipe becomes blocked this can also emit a nasty aroma.

Running a 90-degree wash with biological detergent may fix the problem and stop the smell from reoccurring. Limescale remover will also hygienically clean your machine.

Why is my washing machine so noisy?

If this happens during first-time use this could be due to an installation that hasn’t been carried out properly. And protective brackets or bolts may have been left on.

Check that the washing machine is sitting level. Then the most probable cause will be worn drum bearings – and these will need replacing.
