Issue with the drying cycle

I liked the washing performance and the LED display which shows the remaining cycle time, however this range of Indesit washer dryers have a design issue where a jet of cold water shoots into the detergent drawer every 12 seconds on the drying cycle. 1st on an Indesit 6125, then on the replacement 7143 machine, Indesit sent out an engineer to reprogram the motherboard, but ended up freezing both machines with the software update! AO replaced with a different brand. The Indesit engineer described it as 'water hammer', where the quick opening & closing of the water valve caused noise on the machine and also along the water pipes in my flat. Apparently it's a recent design change to help keep the machine clean. It was too noisy in our small flat.


This washing machine states it will take over 6 hours to a standard wash (I’ve not tested it for obvious reasons) and when using it in drying mood the pump noise is incredibly loud. My previous indesit washer/dryer did not have any of these issues

Dryers not great

This product is not the best. The washer is fine but the dryer takes too long and you cannot open the machine whilst drying.

Functions are great

Very quiet ?? and washes clothes very well. The drying feature is not as good as the washing ability but I expected that to be honest. After surviving just a week without my washing machine I was pleased that this washing machine is so effective as I had so much washing. Good product overall but the dryer just doesn’t do as well and effectively bakes the clothes making them smell a little burnt if used for too long. I can live with though having the two combined saves space in my micro kitchen.


very noisy. no short cycle. rinse cycle takes 50minutes. eco time is a con adds up 36 minutes when comes to 1 minute. any program will take at least 1:15 minutes to finish. clothes very wrinkled if not removed from machine straight away.


washer/dryer is easy to use, drum is a lot smaller that what i am used too. seems to take longer to dry the clothes as still wet after 60 minutes

washer dryer

I find the large dial hard to place on the right number because it is not marked particularly well. The smaller ones are acceptable. The pause button doesn't pause anything that I have used so far. When I want to stop the dryer, even if I turn it off and put the machine on a wash, the dryer won't cancel. I have to leave it turned off for a while and even then it sometimes doesn't cancel, I need to do it a few times. The dryer seems to take a long time and the cotton cycle is too hot. I no longer use that. I find that I prefer to stop the dryer before the time is finished. The machine washes really well and the dryer, if I use the synthetic cycle, is brilliant. I like the ECO button. As with any washing machine, I will get used to the way it works and just use the selections I require.


Washer dryer is extremely noisy for about 5-10 mins of the cycle, the whole flat shakes. No option to do an express wash without using the dryer also.
