I've got an indesit washer dryer machine, model iwdd7143 and it starts the cycle but then the red lock button flashes off, f9 flashes up on the screen and it doesn't carry on. Any tips?

Hi, welcome to Just answer

Customer: hello
KevinWhiteJA :

How old is this unit ?

Customer: I'm not sure, maybe no more than 2 years (it belongs to landlord)
KevinWhiteJA :

OK, F9 is the Setup error usually caused due to a bad control

KevinWhiteJA :

have you already tried to leave it unplugged for few minutes ?

Customer: Yep, but maybe not long enough...should I just try longer and then if not, call out an engineer?
KevinWhiteJA :

You can unplug it for 2-3 minutes...then plug it back and simultaneously press and hold the START button

KevinWhiteJA :

let me know if error is still there after all this is done

Customer: Ok will do
KevinWhiteJA :

Did that work ?

Customer: Looks like it has, thank you
