Hi! We too suffer from same problem as you, though much less frequently. Turns out, as I read this morning in the manual, that turning the machine on/off does NOT reset the machine. It says to do that you have to advance the dial to any of the black dots that mark the end of a full wash cycle, and leave it there for at least 5 seconds. Nothing else will reset the machine. Hope this can help reduce your suffering!

“Bought 3 in 2004 - No Problems”

Written on: 22/07/2011

I bought 3 "B" Grade models in 2004 to fit out 3 flats I'd just bought. Flats have had tenants throughout and have only had problems when one tenant twice blocked the filter. Fixed it myself. One machine has just failed - still washes but does not dry. I never buy service agreements, so this has been very cheap to run so far. Indesit now want £124.99 for a one off repair, or £179.88 for a 1 year warranty. Will probably buy another "B" Grade. My experience - very happy with Indesit… Read Full Review

“I bought an Indesit WD12s (silver version)8 years ago...”

Written on: 08/04/2011

I bought an Indesit WD12s (silver version)8 years ago and in that time it has gone wrong twice, both times with a faulty solenoid valve. This is when the machine constantly fills up with water, even when it's unplugged. Fortunately the first time this happened it was still in its warranty period and the second time I bought the part myself and replaced it. I think the part was about 13 pounds. So it hasn't really cost me a lot.
The machine washes fine, but the drying is not the greatest… Read Full Review

“This should have been class action lawsuit fodder. It...”

Written on: 03/11/2010

This should have been class action lawsuit fodder. It crashes often, has gone ON FIRE in the dry cycle, failed door handle, switches, safety mechanisms, you name it, it's failed or just waiting to fail.
I have an Indesit dishwasher also, which has had components fail many times.
When it costs £20 for a replacement on off switch, I don't bother and just solder the wires or clunk in a generic £1 switch. Ugly, but these things are ugly inside already ;)
Don't buy any Indesit products unless you… Read Full Review

“Crappy cheap, poor quality spring to mind! ”

Written on: 25/09/2010

Crappy cheap, poor quality spring to mind!
If your renting a flat and it has one of these WD12 Indesit machines, your Land lord is a money grabbing Slum Lord!
My machine does work but the drum inside is tiny, it does not dry clothes very well and the handle has snapped off twice!

These are about £24.99 to replace in parts alone and a NIGHTMARE to fit evan if your quite good at DIY.
Spend more and get allot more back in return. You will certainly save money in the long run and get a much… Read Full Review

Written on: 25/03/2010

I bought one of these 5 yrs ago for a holiday let. It has NEVER worked !! The engineer has been out 3 or 4 times, replaced the circuit board twice and the knob still spins around. It has been the worst purchase I have ever made, absolutely useless - don't buy one, don't even let someone give you one of these machines you will only have to take it out again and dispose of it !!… Read Full Review

Had this washer for 1 year and 2 months and it has broken down 5 times. the main circut board keeps breaking down. its now out of warranty and have been told to scrap it. when the machine was working it sounded like nasa was launching a rocket in the kichen and would never set it away before going to bed, just so my street could sleep. the clothes came out dirtier than what they went in, and had to dry clothes 2 times everytime due to dryer not doing job the first time. would of been quicker… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/12/2009

Don't ever buy this machine - in fact I cannot recommend Indesit at all. Buy a quality-brand, no-frills machine - you will get far better value for money that way. I've had 8 of these Indesit WD12 machines in rental properties - with five machines failed! Often multiple times each machine. Spinning dial. Door won't open. Etc. Certainly never buy one second hand… Read Full Review

“This Indesit WD12 was newly installed when I moved in....”

Written on: 31/10/2009

This Indesit WD12 was newly installed when I moved in. It is now just 3 years old, perhaps 200 washes.
Spinning knob problem. (Plus, it is indeed very noisy when spinning.)
The service people checked it 3 times in the past 3 months, each time taking out the main circuit board, drying it with a hair dryer, putting it back in. It then worked for another 1 or 2 times. (Fortunately, since this is a recurring problem, they charged me only once so far.)
The machine was the choice of the developer… Read Full Review

This Indesit washing machine has turning knob syndrome, wash failure halfway through (clothes stuck in machine under water, mega annoying), soap/detergent residue on clothes frequently(soft water area) and dryer far too harsh for most fabrics. Also the noisiest spin I have ever heard!… Read Full Review
