Error codes washing machine Indesit

We have collected all the error codes of Indesit washing machine with a detailed description of the causes of malfunctions, diagnostics and repair. For convenience, arranged in a convenient and understandable table below.

The models with the display show the alphanumeric combination on your display, find it in the table and find out the reason for the error.

Models without a display do not execute the specified program and according to the lit or flashing lights placed on the control panel, you can find out the problem.

Indesit washing machine errors, decoding

Error code Description Causes and solution
F01 The triac of the motor power circuit tripped. Inspect J9 for water. Replace the electronic module.
F02 Failure of the tachogenerator circuit (open or short), motor malfunction. Check the motor lock, the contacts of connector J9 on the electronic module, the resistance of its contacts 1 and 2 should be between 115 - 170 Ohms. A module or motor can be replaced.
F03 Open or short in temperature sensor. Sticking of the heater relay is possible. Inspect the pins on connector J8. Make sure the temperature meter is working, its resistance should be 20 kOhm at room temperature (contacts 11 and 12 are measured). Replacing a sensor or electronic module.
F04 The water level meter displays an “empty tank” or “overflow”. Need to check the connection of the J3 connector of the electronic module. Check the water level sensor, connector contacts (2-4 contacts are closed - the tank is empty, 2-3 contacts are closed - the tank is full, 2-1 contacts are closed - overflow). Install a working sensor and an electronic module.
F05 Malfunction of the drain pump (blocking). Make sure the pump is working, there is no clogging in the drainage system, or a clean filter.
F06 The buttons on the control panel fail. It is necessary to check the functionality of the control panel buttons. Perhaps you need to replace the control panel and electronic controller.
F07 After filling the tank, the water level sensor continues to transmit a signal about an empty tank. Make sure the supply valve is working, normal pressure in the water supply system, and no clogging in the system.
F08 Constantly active tubular heater relay. Check the heater relay, its connection to the electronic module. In case of breakage, install serviceable items.
F09 Non-volatile memory failure. A flashing of non-volatile memory is needed if the microcircuit is working.
F10 Water did not fill in the tank to the desired mark for a certain time. Diagnostics of level meter, electrical connections, connection of J3 connector of electronic module and sensor. If broken, replace the element.
F11 The drain pump is out of order. Waste water does not drain. Diagnostics of the performance of the drain pump, measuring the resistance of the winding (170 Ohms) on connector J5 (pins 1 and 2), J9 (pins 8 and 9). Replacing a pump or electronic module.
F12 Loss of communication in the circuit between the display modules and electronic. Check the connections between the modules, connector J11. Installing a new display module and electronic.
F13 The drying temperature control sensor has failed. The connection between the electronic controller and the temperature meter is checked. Installation of new elements.
F14 Drying is not included in the work. Diagnose the connections of the electronic controller and the tubular drying heater.
F15 After switching on, drying does not stop working. Contact may be lost at connector CN1 of the backplane or breakage of the level meter.
F16 The rotation of the drum is blocked. Make sure the drum is in good condition and that it is not blocked.
F17 The door of the boot shaft hatch is not locked. Re-close the hatch door, make sure the lock, lock mechanism are in good condition.
F18 The connection between the controller chips and the asynchronous drive motor control processor is lost. It is necessary to install a working main electronic module.
