Hi all,

I've searched through and failed to find an answer to my problem, so can anyone help out?

I've got an Indesit WIDL126. There appears to be no problems with the machine, and it's seemingly completing its wash cycles without incident. However, twice now it's flashed its lights at me, suggesting there's a problem.

All four LED's, all four Function lights, and the door lock light (so every light on the machine) flash very quickly and continuously. I've not found a list of error codes, so can anyone else shed some light on this?

Thanks in advance.

Washing machine drive belt broken?

Buy washing machine drive belts and other washing machine spare parts
If your washing drum does not turn then it is possible that the drive belt in your machine has snapped or broken. Find a new drive belt in our store including many low cost compatible drive belts for all major brands. Do also check for carbon brush wear if the belt is not broken when you get no drum rotation

Not a specific error code, its just an Indesit thats all, think yourself lucky its actually working at all.

All lights flashing usually means a main board failure. It could be loose connections on the PCB though.

Ha! :lol:

I can't really argue with that. However, in fairness, this one was a Comet auction one that I picked up for about £100, and it's lasted four years or so, so I don't think it owes me much!

I've just turned it on again and now it's flashing the bottom LED and all four Function lights (it's not done that one before) so I'm guessing that it's basically screwed...

It would do no harm for you to try and tighten up the connections on the circuit boards, with the mains plug removed of course but it does sound as though the electronics are going pear shaped, very common on Indesit machines.

Really expensive to consider TBH.

4 years for £100 is very good going for one of these, you really need to spend £350 to £400 before you get into decent quality machines today.
