Most of the common Indesit washing machine problems faced by the users can be easily dealt at home. A few manual troubleshooting tricks along with proper maintenance can keep your machine going without complaints for a long time.
Indesit washing machine repairs should only be tried at home if the problems are minor. In case of major electric circuit or motor related problems, you should consult a mechanic.
Here is the run down of the most common troubleshooting and quick fixes you can do at home:
Every Indesit washer comes with an instruction book or a manual. In case you have misplaced it, you can download it from the available links over the Internet. For this, you need the proper model number of your washing machine.
Most Indesit machines have their number displayed on the front or behind the doors of the units. Some models have their number on the front panel. Sometimes, they are unreliable, so check behind the door for the full model number.
You might also need other numbers like the serial number, product number, etc. of the machine. So, keep the cash memo and other related documents handy.
In case, the links do not work, you need to contact the manufacturers for the manual book.
The drum bearings of the machines are placed in a back plate that can be easily removed. Though the bearings can be accessed and repaired at a cheap cost, the new bearing replacement will cost 50% greater than the purchase price.
A standard motor of the Indesit washing machines costs about £200. It takes 75% of the purchase price to fit it with a professional. Indesit charges even more for fitting.
Other replaceable parts like drain hose, pump, soap dispenser, stacking kit, carbon brush, belt tension, door seal, pump, etc. should always be bought genuine from the manufacturers.
Indesit washing machine problems and minor issues can be fixed by the instructions provided in the manual book that it comes with. Worn out or broken spare parts should always be replaced with original parts by certified engineers from Indesit.
