Indesit is a highly regarded appliance manufacturer. But even the best-made appliances can go wrong. If you notice any of these common Indesit error codes, don’t panic, some of them have simple solutions and you can resolve them on your own but for others, like the motor or electrical issues you’ll need to call in an Indesit appliance repair expert to get everything put back to rights.

Identifying Indesit washing machine fault codes is usually pretty easy. Unlike other brands where you need to count flashes or do other annoying things to determine faults, Indesit appliances have clear LEDs and display screens.
All you need is a list (like the one below) that explains what each code means. They’ll tell you, for example, that an Indesit washing machine fault code F-05 means you’ve got a problem with your pump or waste pipe. Keep in mind that while fault codes can point out which component is failing, they shouldn’t be taken as a specific diagnose. For every issue that you are not sure you can handle yourself, consult with a washing machine repair expert for advice or to help you with the repairs.
The one exception is the Indesit washing machine fault code H20. That’s not a letter “H” and a number “20”. That’s H2O, the chemical formula for water, and it means there’s something wrong with your water itself or the supply. For the rest, here are the most common codes you’ll come across:
Like their other appliances, Indesit tumble dryer fault codes are pretty easy to spot.

Consult the display panel of your Indesit dishwasher to see the machine’s self-diagnosis of which component is failing.
Indesit dishwashers are well-made. Yet, like other similar appliances, they commonly suffer from water drain failures (an F03 error, often caused by a blocked filter or pipe) and insufficient pressure (an F06 error, sometimes caused by a problem with the door or the way the appliance was installed) or F02 error, most often associated with the inlet solenoid valve and a possible reason for your dishwasher not able to clean the dishes properly.
You’re less likely to experience full-on serious mechanical malfunctions like an F13 main board fault with an Indesit, but it’s good to know in the unlikely event one does crop up! In a situation like that or another where the washing machine is pointing out a failing electrical component, it is always better to contact a professional dishwasher engineer to further diagnose and fix the issue.
