Mine is lights 2 and 4 but I don’t know what ‘pressure switch stuck on full’ means and how do I fix it

The pressure switch is the device that tells the machine how high the water level is inside. When the pressure tubes get blocked up the air can no longer flow to the sensor resulting in bad readings.
Cleaning out the tube that goes between the outer tub and the sensor would be the first thing to try.
I am assuming that the water has already pumped out of the product.

Hi there, if our light 2 is showing, is there a way we can try to self repair?

Monday, July 15, 2019 at 8:17 am

If you give me the model number I will try to find out for you. Also which light is it and what happens before the light comes on?

Many thanks – it’s the WIDL126.

The machine is plugged in at the wall but not actually switched on by pressing the on button yet the non iron light is illuminated and has been for the last 48 hours, even with a cycle having been on, finished and off button pressed again.

Hi there,

Just reactivated our WIDL126 after 10 years in the cellar.

First 5 loads no problem….then we got an error message:

1 2 4 plus red light

Then it changed to 1 plus red light

Now we have 4 plus red light.

Pump working but nothing else.

Does anybody have a clue what the problem might be??

Thank you in advance!!

If the pump is running permanently on that product it is most likely going to be the PCB. The last error message is motor or door lock but neither of these should leave the pump running.

PCB on a product that age is not worth doing especially seeing these products and Hotpoints have a ‘smart card’ system for programming the boards which is unreliable at best. The Indesit/Hotpoint engineers can use special laptops to try multiple times at programming the boards until they work properly. I wouldn’t buy an Indesit or Hotpoint for this reason.

After getting a bit more information this could also be an earth fault on the drying side which causes odd problems. check to see if the heaters hold up with an insulation test.

Also Motor issues can cause pump to run under certain circumstances as they have a linked neutral.

Our indesit widl 126 washer dryer has all the lights flashing and it will not work.
Is this something that is repairable. please

Saturday, September 7, 2019 at 9:05 am

Yes it is repairable if all 4 lights are flashing it points to a drier heater problem. You could book an engineer with us Indesit repair to have a look at it.

We have a Indesit IWDE 126 washer dryer and need to know if this needs any attention relating to the risk of fire or electral faults. The code is S/N 411253278 80624630295. I AWAIT YOUR EARLY REPLY
Many thanks

Washer dryers are not affected by the same Fire risk recall as the tumble dryers and I am not aware of any other recalls on their washer dryers.

I have checked the model and serial number you give on the Indesit Issue Tracker and it says there are no issues with your product.

Indesit IWDE126 – the light with the ironing logo, the spin speed logo (1200, 600) and the door locks indicator are all flashing. Any idea what error these signal?

Wednesday, September 25, 2019 at 2:06 pm

You need to count the lights left to right and look it up in the table. Indesit don’t do it by the labels on the lights so without you giving me something like 1st, 2nd and 3rd lights flashing I wouldn’t be able to help you.

Hello , I really need your advice my IWDC 6105 washer dryer works for 20 to 30 minutes then it suddenly stop and gives flashing all horizontal lights 1-2-3-4 and start button too with last two vertical lights on

What would be the error code pls and is it f015 which said dryer heater relay ? If yes how to fix it please ?

Thursday, October 3, 2019 at 8:03 am

That is odd, I don’t see why the dryer relay would be active at that part of the cycle and I am not sure that all the lights are meant to be flashing at the same time including the start light etc.

If you are not competent enough to test all the components individually then it is probably best to get a company like us out to have a look. The PCB itself could be faulty.
