Unplug the appliance.
Wait 15 minutes, plug it back in and try the machine again.

What happens now?

Customer: replied 4 years ago.


The machine has been powered down for over 30 minutes. I restarted it and it began to fill, but after about a minute it returned to the same mode with the 3 lights.

OK,, thanks for that.

I'm afraid your machine is reporting a faulty main control board.

At best,, it needs to be reprogrammed, at worst, it will need to be changed and then programmed to the appliance.

Sorry, it's not a diy job as you need special equipment to program the board.

Indesit will repair the appliance for a fixed price, parts and labour inclusive.
You do need to call them for the latest plans and prices.

If you do try to repair it yourself, you'll need the board, a smart card reader/adapter and a smart card with the program for your appliance.

The reader/adapter costs over £100 on it's own.

Sorry it's not good news or a simple fix.

Hope this helps
Let me know how it goes or if you need more help.
