Why it is necessary to zero the program correctly?
Of course, there are a fraction of owners who, in case of emergency, simply unplug the power cord from the socket. They explain this by the fact that their washing machine is expensive and modern, and therefore able to “remember” all the program options that were before the accident.
Such devices are actually sold, but the calculating owner will never do so: with a sudden shutdown, there is a possible risk of damaging the electronic circuit board of the washing machine. What to say about models with computerized circuitry. They certainly do not tolerate such an extreme approach.
The following recommendations relate to models produced nowadays. When describing the faults of machines of past decades will be specified additionally.
Resetting the Indesit Cwm
Owners of Indesit washing machines are often confused by the look of the “Start/Reset” button on the control panel. As a rule, it is not signed, and instead of the usual triangle and two sticks it shows a rhomboid with one vertical line in the middle. Original. Before you start washing, the user must turn the toggle switches to the desired mode and speed.
There is a certain sequence of actions in case of an emergency stop:
I work in the field of repair of household appliances. Extensive experience in restoring washing machines and dishwashers.
It should be noted that on older Indesit models, before pressing the “rhombus”, it is necessary to reset the handles to their original positions. If after resetting all the panel lights turned green and extinguished, the machine is serviceable. Otherwise, such a signal will not occur, indicating that the machine is broken.
Resetting a Hotpoint-Ariston
As in the case of “Indesit,” slightly modified the icon of the button “ON/OFF”. This is not a rhombus with a dash, not a triangle with sticks, but a circle, the top of which is crossed by a vertical line.
This icon can be found on a number of other devices. from the computer monitor to the set-top box. Popularly referred to as the Power button.
So, to reset the washing cycle on Hotpoint-Ariston machines, you must press Power for 3 seconds. This is the amount of time it takes for the program to understand that the pressing is not accidental.
If pressed once, the machine will not react. After pressing Power for 3 seconds, the washing cycle is canceled, the settings are reset.

When using the washing machines of the latest models (2015-19) “Bosch”, loading the laundry, changing the mode, turning on/off the spin happens on the same principle:

Reset on Samsung
There is also the classic “Start/Pause” button. a triangle and two dashes. To reset or switch the washing mode, press this button, move the knob to another program, and press “Start/Pause” again. The machine will accept the new settings.
A number of models include a special function in which washing can be paused, and through an additional cover on the door of the drum to add detergent or get things that have been put by mistake. Very convenient.
Resetting LG washing machines
All of the rules described above apply to this brand of machine. When using the LG, it is worth noting the subtlety that will allow you to stop and reset the washing mode, while not making much intellectual effort or, in simple terms, “for the lazy”.
During operation, simply press the “Start/Pause” and wait for a while. The program will then automatically reset all the washing options and interrupt the cycle.
Stopping and cancelling the program
Some LG washing machine users resort to radical methods to stop the operation. turning off the power button. There are housewives who act even harsher. they unplug the cable from the outlet to stop the machine from running. Neither the first nor the second method should be used. If the power supply is cut off abruptly, the electronic components of the washer can become damaged, leading to expensive repairs. It is best to follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
- Press the “Start/stop” button while the machine is running. Work will stop, but power will be supplied to the control board.
- If you need a different washing mode, select it and press “Start/Stop”. To reset the program completely, use the selector switch to set the “Wringing” program.
- Select “No spin”. The number “1” will appear on the screen, which means that the water has been drained and the machine is shut off.
- In 3 minutes all the water will be gone and the machine will unlock the door.
- Unload the laundry.
Important! If you power off the washing machine with water in the drum, there is a risk of flooding your apartment and the neighbors downstairs.
Sometimes the machine may freeze while running a program and stop responding to commands. In this case you will still need to turn off the power. You should then wait 10 minutes for the settings to return to the standard. You can then re-start the washer and repeat the program.

What to do with an appliance that hangs?
Before you start restarting a “hung” Indesit washing machine, it is necessary to find out whether the failure is the result of errors in the operation of the household appliance or the washing process is not carried out due to software problems.
So, if the washing machine does not start washing, check:
Perhaps the weight of dirty laundry put into the drum, exceeds the norm (the weight sensor sends a signal to the control module, blocking the washing machine). In this case, the washing machine should be turned off, open the hatch and take out some of the laundry, and the remaining items should be evenly distributed over the drum.

In the case when the machine “hangs” on the final stage of washing (does not empty the water, does not spin the laundry) it is necessary to check which particular mode has been started.
Perhaps due to lack of attention a washing program not providing for emptying and spinning (for example for delicate items) was started. In such a situation, the water drain and the wringer are started manually separately.
Indesit washing machine “hangs” at the beginning of washing. you need to check whether the dirty laundry in the drum is not bunched up in the com. Unbalance is the most common cause of washing machine stoppage (the module receives a signal of overload, thus blocking the rotation of the drum).
If the operation errors are eliminated, the normal operation of the washing machine has not resumed, then most likely there has been a failure in the control module. In such a case, a full restart of the washing machine is required.
