I have a problem with indesit washing machine (wixl 125 ). Last time the electricity went out because of work outside, and the washer was not washing! It was just plug in. Now all the lights on it flashing. I know that this showing me some error but i dont know what its wrong with the washer...

Probably it was because a power surge happened and fried something inside the washer!
Sadly that could happen with any machine... once you'll have it repaired, remember to turn the machine off from a bi-polar switch or unplug the cable from the wall outlet to prevent future occurrences!

Been there... done that...

A Special Flashing Sequence... depending on how many times and which LED is doing the sequential flashing, it will indicate an error code.

I used to have a list of error codes... I might still have it somewhere... but it didn't take me long until Indesit themselves helped me realise that the easiest solution to such complex issue was to replace the PCB. In fact, in my case, the particular flashing phenomenon I was experiencing indicated a faulty pump... but there’s the rub! A burned circuit would make the lights flash in such a way as to indicate a faulty drain pump... well… a fault within a fault… in reality, it was the PCB all the time.

My lucky Indesit did have a new PCB after all... only because it's a washer-dryer hence more expensive to replace. It might be worth to cast your eyes over the PCB and see if you notice any burn marks... then you wouldn't need to investigate any further... you'd definitely need to replace the PCB!
