Hi Vivienne,

Is the on-off/door lock LED flashing rapidly at the same time as at least one other LED?

If so Indesit recommend:

1. Switch off machine

2. Remove from mains for 40 seconds

3. Put mains plug back in

4. Switch on

5. If problem persists, there is an ongoing problem which an engineer will need to look at.

Regards,

Rich

Hi ***** have tried doing as you suggested as my handbook also suggests this.
I was hoping you would come up with other possible solutions so i am not really happy
with the outcome of this enquiry as it has not solved the problem.

Hi Vivienne,

Unfortunately this does seem to indicate a fault that an engineer will need to look at, but I'm happy to opt out and see if another expert can help you.

Hello,
It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.
Thank you!
