Flashing lights

Flashing lights on your washing machine are an indicator of a possible fault. The most common ones include the following:

Pre-wash light flashing – this shows that the washing machine isn’t filling properly. You’ll need to have the fill hoses checked to ensure they’re turned on, and the fill hose pipe will have to be checked for any damage or obstructions, and for leaks. This can easily be rectified by an experienced technician.

Wash light flashing – this is one of the Indesit washing machine flashing lights that indicate that the programme dial has been accidentally moved from the original setting. The wash dial will need to be returned to its original position for the flashing to stop.

Spin light flashing – this indicates that the appliance has considered that the wash load is unbalanced or excessive. The laundry will need to be removed and redistributed evenly. Some items may need to be washed in another load.

End light flashing – this simply denotes that the washing machine has reached the end of a wash programme.

Indesit washing machine door lock light flashing

This lock light flashes when the door is closed and prevents the machine from starting the wash. In this case, it’s most likely that the door interlock is failing. As power is passed through the door lock into the rest of the machine if this part is faulty the washing machine won’t work.

The latching of the door is a simple spring-loaded mechanism which slips into the door catch and keeps the door closed. A replacement door interlock may be needed if this doesn’t happen.

A faulty printed circuit board can also cause the door lock light to flash. This would need to be inspected by a qualified engineer as they can occasionally overheat and become damaged. It is possible to have this part repaired but you may be advised to have it replaced.

All lights flashing on washing machine

Indesit washing machine all lights flashing and not draining can be a sign of a blockage in the filter. If the wash, rinse, and spin function lights are all flashing at the same time this points to a possible obstruction in the waste or drain pipe. Blockages can be caused by coins, keys, or small items of clothing such as a loose sock.

The pump filter will need to be cleared of any debris, and the drain hose will need to be unscrewed from the spigot to allow the excess water to be emptied out. These jobs are all easily performed by an appliance repair technician. Following this, the pump itself can be checked for anything that may have wrapped itself around the impeller causing damage or even breaking the component.

This issue can also be caused by worn carbon brushes. These transfer electricity to the armature of the motor that then spins and turns the drum via the drive belt. Motor malfunctions can be due to the brushes becoming worn, sparking the motor and resulting in an incomplete electrical contact.
