At Indesit Service we want you to get the best from your appliance while also being kind to the environment, below are some tips which will help you to do this. We have included energy saving advice on all of our major product groups 


Laundry Dishwashing Refrigeration Cooking


Laundry - Washing Machines
  • Wash full loads only.
  • Use the maximum washing time only for heavily soiled clothes. Washing longer than necessary wastes energy and wears out clothes.
  • Vary the size of garments in a load so water can circulate freely.
  • Use lower temperatures to wash, current washing machines can produce excellent washing performances at 30° 
  • Use our recommended lime scale and detergent remover regularly to maintain the efficiency of the heating element. Buy online at our spare parts store

Laundry - Tumble Dryers

  • In summer, run the dryer at night so its warmth isn’t released during the heat of the day.
  • Clear the lint screen after each load for quick drying.
  • Check and clean your dryer exhaust vent periodically. Remove lint after each load.
  • If your clothes dryer has an automatic cycle / sensor cycle, use it. Drying more than needed wastes energy and wears out clothes.
  • Check the outside vent lid monthly to make sure it opens and closes freely. If it doesn’t close tightly, replace it with one that does to keep outside air from leaking in.
  • For fewer wrinkles and shorter drying time, never overload your dryer.
  • Dry loads of clothing back to back, using the leftover heat. This reduces overall drying time and lowers energy costs.


  • Dishwashers use less hot water than washing and rinsing dishes by hand.
  • Use a short or light cycle. These require fewer fills and less water heating. Some dishwashers use up to 40 percent less hot water per load, and others allow you to reduce the temperature settings on your water heater. Both can save you money.
  • Check the condition of your dishwasher filter screen and clean or replace it when necessary.
  • Save more energy by air drying your dishes and only running full loads.
  • Use our recommended lime scale and detergent remover regularly to maintain the efficiency of the heater. Buy online at our spare parts store


  • Partially thaw frozen foods in the refrigerator before cooking them. In many cases, thawing foods lets you cut cooking times by a third.
  • Don’t place your refrigerator next to your stove or other sources of heat. And allow adequate wall and cabinet clearance. Giving a refrigerator or freezer “room to breath” will let it operate more efficiently and prevent premature burnout.
  • Store the most perishable items in the coldest part of your refrigerator
  • Twice a year — more often if you have longhaired pets — unplug your refrigerator and vacuum the coils in the back or underneath. Dirt and dust on the coils greatly reduces efficiency.
  • Allow hot foods to cool before putting them in the refrigerator. Make sure you don’t over-crowd shelves or block the circulation of air inside.
  • Wipe any moisture off containers before putting them in the refrigerator, and keep foods in the refrigerator covered. Moisture will otherwise build up rapidly and you’ll use more energy to remove it.
  • Be sure your refrigerator door closes tightly and the gasket is in good condition. Check it by closing the door on a piece of paper. If you can easily pull the paper out when the door is closed, you need a new gasket. To further test the magnetic gasket, put a torch inside the appliance and point it at various areas of the gasket and close the door. If you can see light, you need a new gasket.


  • Grime from cooking, smoking and dust can make a light bulb dirty, reducing the light it gives off. Inspect and clean bulbs regularly.
  • Use cooker hoods that vent to the outdoors as little as possible during the winter to limit sending heated air outdoors.
  • Don’t open the oven door to check on food any more than necessary. Twenty-five percent of the heat escapes each time you do. Turn off the oven about 15 to 20 minutes before the end of the cooking time. The leftover heat will finish the job.
  • Avoid cooking during the hottest parts of a summer’s day. Cook outdoors when you can.
  • Cook in oven-safe glass or ceramic pans when you can. They allow you to set your oven temperature twenty-five degrees lower than the recipe calls for.
  • Keep pots and pans covered and use the right size pot or pan for the size of your stove’s burner. Use properly fitted lids to hold the heat in.
  • When boiling a liquid, only put in the pot what you will use. Start with a high heat setting. When boiling starts, turn the heat down and allow foods to simmer until fully cooked.
  • Begin a self-cleaning cycle while your oven is still hot from cooking.
  • Do summer cooking in the evening so your home stays more comfortable during the day.
  • Cook several dishes in the oven at the same time. Prepare double recipes when you can and freeze for future use. Re-heat with microwave.
  • Take the pan test on a gas stove or cook top. If the flame is visible on the sides of the pan, lower the setting to conserve fuel.
  • Keep the door closed when broiling in a gas stove to keep in high temperatures. The gas flames will consume smoke and grease.
  • Use our recommended oven cleaner to clean your oven and aid efficient heating. Buy online at our spare parts store
