The Reset Procedure

Indesit washing machine factory reset instructions are as follows:

  • Switch off the power and unplug the machine
  • Turn on the machine using the on/off button
  • Set the timer control to the zero position
  • Plug the machine back in
  • Switch on the power
  • The display lights should now be flashing
  • Turn off the machine with the on/off button
  • Select the programme required
  • Turn the machine back on at the on/off button

The machine should now be reset and function normally – if not you may have to repeat the procedure. If this fails again there may be a fault that’s preventing the washing machine from working. And you may need to get in touch with a trained technician to diagnose the cause. And fix the problem for you.

  • Press the power button to restart the washing machine
  • Or:

  • Press the Cancel button to clear the error

Problems Causing the Need to Reset

There are many reasons that instigate the need to reset your Indesit washing machine. These include a power outage or imbalanced loads. Some models have a reset button that you simply press to reset the motor. Programmable models usually have a reset function or position.

Indesit washing machine reset issues include:

Washing machine won’t start or stops during a programme – this is often due to a power cut – and the circuit breaker will need to be checked to ensure it hasn’t tripped.

Other factors could be related to the water supply which will cause the washing machine failing to fill during the rinse cycle. And will result in the appliance stopping mid-cycle. If the drain hose is positioned at the wrong height – or is damaged in any way this will also lead to problems.

Flashing lights

Most Indesit washing machines have a series of lights that flash to indicate a possible fault. The most common are:

Pre-wash – pointing to a failure to fill correctly. You’ll need to check the water supply, and hose pipes for leaks and obstructions.
Wash – an accidental movement of the programme dial can cause this light to flash – and you may be able to stop the light by moving the dial to its original position.

Spin – specifies that the load is excessive or unbalanced and may need to be redistributed and loaded evenly. Otherwise, the programme will end.

End – shows that the washing machine has reached the end of a wash programme. However, if the wash, rinse, and spin lights are all flashing at the same time this indicates a possible obstruction in the filter, drain, or waste pipe.
