The Indesit Company (formerly Merloni) is not new to the market. Its washing machines under the names Ariston and Indesit more than 20 years, please the users with their functionality and affordable prices. Every year the technique is improved, and together with it the system of definition of malfunctions simplifies. Models manufactured before 2000 have the EVO-I control system. The error can be identified by the blinking of the display, which is quite simple. Power light flashes several times depending on the problem and then briefly pauses and repeats the action. For example, five times glowing at short intervals indicates an error with the code F05.
Indesit washing machine error codes without a display are manifested by the flashing of a certain combination of indicators
modern Indesit models have EVO-II control and display the error in a different way. If the machine is equipped with a display, the error code is displayed in letters and numbers, after which the symbols can be deciphered and the cause of the malfunction easy to find. In budget appliances without a display, such as WISL 82, WISL 102, W105TX, IVSB5105, etc., You will have to determine the problem by the display of a group of glowing lights, which are listed below:
You can tell by the marking next to each light bulb which direction you need to look to find a solution to your problem. The following hints will be helpful to the user who wants to determine the fault correctly:
- Error codes F01-11 are valid for Ariston and Indesit washing machines from the 2000 series.
- The values F01-F12 indicate the errors in the Indesit Evolution series.
- Symbols F01-F15 are used for washing machines with drying mode.

Error codes of Indesit washing machines
Modern washing machines manufactured under the Indesit brand are equipped with a system for detecting and diagnosing malfunctions. What is it? When the installation can not perform work in normal mode, it stops the washing and gives a signal of malfunction.
Modern Indesit washing machines have a special display
The easiest way to decipher such signals is by the code that appears on the display. However, not all Indesit washing machines are equipped with a display. In such popular models, as Wisl 82, Wisl 102, W105tx, Iwsb5105, it is necessary to recognize the nature of the error by the blinking of indicators.
For those who are first faced with the need to decipher the information codes of their home assistant, the task may seem overwhelming. Nevertheless, it is not difficult to identify a malfunction, using the tips provided by the appliances. In our article we will list the main error codes of Indesit washing machines, tell you what they mean and how to fix some of them on your own.
The codes that indicate different malfunctions will be the same for all models of washing machines manufactured after 2000, regardless of whether they are equipped with an information display or not. In models without a display, it will take a little more time to decipher the code, because it will be necessary to “read” it from the signals of indicators.
First of all, let us list the malfunctions and corresponding codes, and then we will present the scheme of code recognition according to the signals of indicators.

Water temperature sensor in Indesit washing machines
One way to check the sensor is to measure its resistance. If it is working, the multimeter should read approximately 20 kOhm. Also check for continuity in wiring and functionality of connectors from the control module to the sensor. In addition to replacing the sensor, an option to troubleshoot the Indesit washing machine is to update the firmware that has been flashed in the non-volatile memory of the CM.
Troubleshooting common faults
Most Indesit washing machine faults can be resolved yourself. In case of failure of electronics, first of all, de-energize the machine for 10-15 minutes by pulling the plug out of the socket. Then restart the washing programme. To eliminate more complex damage you will need a minimum set of tools: pliers, cross-head and flat screwdriver, as well as a multimeter.
Replace the mains filter
Usually the surge protector is located under the top cover of the SM, the mains cable is connected to it. This unit is beyond repair and must be replaced immediately. Such malfunctions of Indesit washing machines can be eliminated simply, but no one will guarantee that the newly purchased filter will last long.
The surge protector to prevent interference in the 220V mains
If the washer-dryer is in the bathroom, high humidity is detrimental to the filter contacts. To waterproof the contacts use silicone sealant. It is necessary to apply it on cleaned dry contact pads. After this the filter assembly will last a long time.
Troubleshooting of the heating element
Heater damage is indicated by codes F07 or F08 on the display or CM indicators. To check and replace the heating element you need to open the back of the machine.
Heating element is located in the lower part of the tank; there are two supply wires with terminals and ground wire
Disconnect the heater terminals with wires and check it with a multimeter. Good part has resistance between 25-40 Ohm. Other values suggest that the heating element must be replaced. After unscrewing the central fixing nut, gently remove the heater by rocking it from side to side. After that apply soap solution to the rubber gasket of the new ТEН and install it in the groove.
Installing new bearings
Noise, clattering and other noises during spinning indicate that the tank bearings need to be replaced. This kind of failure Indesit washing machines are performed by qualified specialists, because it requires a complete disassembly of the unit.
Replacing Bearings in Tank Cross Bracket
Special tools and skills are required to knock out old bearings and press in new ones. The packing must be replaced along with the bearings.
Troubleshooting control unit problems
Italian manufacturer’s ECUs are not designed to withstand the high humidity common in bathrooms. From the impact of moisture affects primarily contact pads connectors circuit boards.
ECU board with connectors where pinholes are clearly visible
Repair of ECU functionality requires knowledge in the field of electronics, that is why such malfunctions of Indesit washing machines should be eliminated by experienced masters.
I want to note that this article does not describe problems with water drainage from the SM. such problems are the same for all brands of machines. The main causes are clogged drain filters and damaged pumps. No special skills are required to clean the filter or replace the pump, this work can be done on your own.
