How to Reset an Indesit WIA101 Washing Machine

Lisa Wampler

The Indesit WIA1001 series washing machine is a washing machine predominantly sold in Europe. It uses an analog programming button denoted as the program ON/Off switch, which is a rotary button that you turn to select a pre-determined wash cycle. If you decide you want to reset the programming, you can reset the program ON/OFF button.

  1. Rotate the program ON/OFF button to the symbol that looks like the letter O with a vertical line extending through it.

  2. Wait until all of the LED lights on the washing machine turn on and then go off again.

  3. Rotate the program ON/OFF button to the off position. If you do not select a different program, the door lock LED button will stay illuminated for approximately one minute. Once the door lock LED flashes, you can open the door.
