Finding images of 1970s and 80s Indesits is really difficult. The only two I have are attached below.

These bring back memories!! These machines were so quiet!! on par with my modern day Miele!! Although the spin was slow, i used to love the way it would spin the wash water out with no draining first.

Was that a joke or were those Indesit machines really quiet??

No, they really WERE that quiet! The non electronic ones of the 70's would tumble with a very slight hum, but if on a boil wash, it was virtually silent.
I had at least 4 different people i knew by these indesits after seeing mine in action based on the very low noise level.
Then, in about 1980, the 1st electronic 800 indesit appeared and a friend of mine bought one thinking it would be like mine-BIG MISTAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Alas no! It really was a terrible machine-it made the hoover/hotpoints look like quiet machines in comparisson!
My friends only had it for about 2 years before they threw it out

The old indesit's of the 70's worked in a strange way. When you switched on, it would fill with water up to just below the door.It would then tumble for about 5 minutes taking in more water if needed and then stop. if you set in on a boil wash, it would stay stationary for over an hour until it reached the temp.Then ,when it started to tumble,you would get a big bout of steam come out of the soap drawer with the waft of whatever powder you were using...oh happy days!!!
