Dales-Electronic :

Hello My name is Ian ~ I am not on the site constantly so please be patient whilst waiting for responses to you queries

Dales-Electronic :

Can you confirm that the door lock led is also flashing rapidly and the quick wash & 1200 spin are flashing together/

JACUSTOMER-a4pwnugn- :

Yes

Dales-Electronic :

OK this indicates that there is a fault with the ntc sensor that measures the temperature of the water, however these Indesit built appliances have poor quality electronic boards and wiring so it is always a good idea to locate the sensor and ensure that you have cable feed back from the sensor to the main pcb, these are quite often damaged when changing the module. Ian

JACUSTOMER-a4pwnugn- :

Have ordered new part,so until fitted and tested,I cannot assess your information but that was my original diagnosis.

Expert:  Dales-Electronic replied 2 years ago.
Well make sure you check out that the reading that you have across the thermistor is the same as that at the module end, the electronics on these appliances are of very poor quality whilst the reliability of thermistors is usually good, I refer you to my original post here, check, check and check again ~ also check that you have continuity through the heater which also gives a multitude of faults with this range of appliances.
