Indesit owned many popular UK brands, the most famous of which are Hotpoint, Creda, Cannon and of course Indesit, however, they do also own several other less well-known brands, at least for the UK. And, now they are owned by the global Whirlpool Corporation so newer products may follow the Whirlpool way of doing things with regard to spare part identification.
To find spare parts for any of these appliances the model number is essential but, as with others, we increasingly see the need to have the production codes or serial numbers due to changes in production. For some spare parts, these are not optional, they are absolutely essential in finding and ordering the correct spare part.

To get to the correct part number is the most important thing to be doing as, from that you can then cross reference, find any alternative parts and so on as well as ensuring the part you get is correct.
Keep in mind that many, many spare parts are about the same size, look the same but this does not in any way mean that you can fit any as the differences are often slight but, means that they are not interchangeable. So, following the path here from the model and product number but sometimes serial number as well and to the part number is the only way to ensure you get the correct spare part for your Indesit appliance.
There are often scores of versions of a single part, things can change and it can be very confusing, we're here to help you through that and to prevent errors.
Guessing, using images alone and ordering because parts look like what you need, trying to measure things are by far and away the most common reasons that people get parts wrong. Please don't do this as it's hassle and cost you don't want or need, it's better to take the time and do it right the first time than try to fix it later.
All the more so as Indesit will regularly change some parts meaning that they may not look exactly the same as the original part so it is vital to follow the path as explained or, you run the risk of ordering incorrect parts and, we don't want that so please check and/or ask if you're even slightly unsure.
