Indesit WI101 intermittent control knob clicking round

I've done a search on here and read various posts about Indesit machines which have developed problems which lead to the dial going round and round and LED flashing. Nothing quite matches my problem - hence this post.

My WI101 started playing up about 3 weeks ago. I can coax it to work, so its not totally broken - but I'd like to know if its fixable.

The machine (on a number 4 wash) starts to fill and then after the first short fill it empties and the control knob goes round and round. Reset / switching off at the wall seems to work, but its hit and miss and needs doing every use.

Other symptoms - a very noisy pump - seems to be trying to empty the machine all the time (when its not working properly). We did check the filter - nothing there.

Also, it seems fine when I do a different program - 9 (quick wash) works fine.

Any thoughts any helpful people?
