Indesit WD10UK filling + clicking. I have been given a second Indesit WD10 washer dryer (to help fix the first !) The problem with this machine is that when you start a cycle it starts to fill, but then it doesn't stop and the dial starts clicking around. I have already cleaned out the filter and the rubber piping under the drum, everything seems clean and free flowing. The pipe from the bottom of the drum to the pressure switch seemed a bit lose on the lower connection, so I have pushed that on firmly. Do you think that the problem is due to this pipe, the pressure switch itself, or something completely different ? Annoyingly the inside electrics between the 2 WD10UKs is completely different, so I can't easily swap bits over to try !
Cleaning out the filter
Cleaning out the Rubber tubing under the drum (before the pump)
Remaking the connection between the lower drum and pressure switch
Try removing the pressure switch and cleaning the contacts and a little wd40 to be sure it isn't sticking. Is there an error code?
There's no error code, but I will try cleaning it up and a squirt of WD40 later this week. I will also change the rubber pipe as the lower connection with the drum doesn't feel as tight as it could be. Thanks
Sounds like a solid plan.
I have tested the pressure switch with a meter, and gently blowing into the pipe switches the contacts. I've refitted the pipe more securely. When I turn the machine on immediately the dial starts clicking around. What do you suggest I do next ?
how about cleaning the port where the pipe connects? there may be some debris in the line. how do the contacts look? are they corroded at all? so far it sounds like either that or the switch needs to be replaced.
It all seemed very clean, but I will take the lower port off and check.
The connects looked good, but I have also cleaned them and sprayed with WD40.
The dial just continually turns around, but there's no flashing error code, I am wondering if the main PCB is duff ?
After checking the lower port what would you suggest I do next ?
i would inspect the board. look for burn marks on the board and (i don't know off hand what the board looks like) check the capacitors for swelling or leaking (if there are capacitors). they look like small batteries they should be very flat and not swelling or leaking.
i haven't heard from you in a few days. i was wondering if the information i provided helped solve the problem? thanks, mike.
