Indesit Company (formerly Merloni) is not a newcomer to the market. Its washing machines under the names Ariston and Indesit have been satisfying the users with their functionality and affordable for over 20 years. Every year the technique is improved, and with it the system of determining faults is simplified. Models manufactured before 2000 have the EVO-I control system. It is possible to identify the malfunction in such units by the blinking of indicator, which is rather simple. The power light flashes several times depending on the problem encountered, then makes a short pause and repeats the action again. For example, 5 times blinking with a short interval indicates the error code F05.

Thus, having calculated the combination of blinking lights, it is not difficult to determine the front of the upcoming repairs. Having found out the source of malfunction, it is possible to find a solution to the problem and return the washing machine to its previous performance.
Tips for self-troubleshooting
Having established the error code and found out the cause of blinking of the indicators, you can independently check and replace the printed circuit board on your Indesit washing machine at home. To do this it is necessary to have a soldering iron, screwdrivers, multimeter and a little experience in working with similar tools.
First of all it is necessary to carefully disassemble the housing of the machine. This work consists of the following steps:
- the machine is disconnected from the mains;
- remove the upper part of the housing;
- unscrewing the screws holding the electronic board in place;
- Disconnect the wires;
- Replace the capacitors or install a new board.
There are two types of Indesit washing machines: with vertical or horizontal load. In the first case the electronic board is located in the upper part of the apparatus, in the second case it is in the lower back. It is not difficult to reach it, but you should always take into account the design features of the particular model.
Tip! Before disassembling the board, it is advisable to photograph the factory layout of wires and connectors. So it will be easier to connect them back.
The electronic board should be carefully examined from all sides. The most common capacitors that fail are C16, C17, C20. If the top of these elements are swollen, then the condenser is clearly defective and should be replaced.
In addition to the external examination, you can use a multimeter to check the components of the board. Some capacitors dry out after being used for a long time and cannot be visually distinguished from nonfunctional capacitors. With the help of a multimeter you can more precisely determine where the circuit breakage occurred, and which of the elements requires replacement.
Now all that remains is to install a new capacitor and properly connect the wires. The main thing is not to mix up the markings and choose the electrical element that fits the model of the machine. After the installation of the board is complete, assemble the body of the machine and conduct a test run.

Blinking LEDs on an Indesit washing machine can be caused by user inattention or malfunction. In any case, the clever technique will tell you where to look for the breakage. You only need to decipher the error code, which corresponds to a combination of blinking lights, and use the table to find out the cause of the malfunction in the unit.
Other possibilities for reading fault codes
How to remove the indication of errors
Statistically, it is believed that a third of the faults shown are simply a system malfunction or incorrectly set washing parameters. First of all it is necessary to make sure that there is no water leakage from the tank. It gets on contacts of connectors, breaks the control circuit. Usually after blowing out the connectors with air, the machine continues to run.
The corrosive environment from the washing powder has a deleterious effect on the metal parts of the motor, destroying them. Some of them can be replaced independently, without going to the service center.
If the operation fails, if the wrong mode is selected, the machine must be restarted and the washing mode changed. For this purpose it is necessary to press the “Start” button and hold it for some time.

- Check that the pressostat and its electrical circuits are functioning correctly. Pressostat
- And the last possible reason could be a malfunction in the control unit.
Codes on machines without display
All modern C.М. have a self-diagnostic function, which allows, in case of failure, to identify the cause, process it and display the error code, but what to do when there is no display, how to be in this case?
Such machines also have self-diagnostic function, but error codes of washing machines without display are shown differently. Anyone with C.М. without display can notice that when you turn on/off the machine, all the bulbs on the panel that are on the machine light up and go out, so there is a self-diagnosis of the presence of problems.
When this or that problem is formed, certain lights light up. In the manual C.М., combinations in which light bulbs light up and causes of malfunction in this case are usually indicated. Indesit machine can show problems by the number of blinking lights.
