ionic 3 image slider stops autoplay after manual sliding

If someone finds a solution for Ionic 4/5, to restart the slider after manual sliding just define like this:

slideOptsOne = {
    initialSlide: 0,
    slidesPerView: 1,
    autoplay: {
      disableOnInteraction: false


<ion-slides [options]="slideOptsOne" color="tertiary">

Reference: Cheers


You need to use it like this:

import { Component, ViewChild } from '@angular/core';
import { IonicPage, NavController, NavParams, Slides } from 'ionic-angular';

@ViewChild(Slides) slides: Slides;

constructor(private navCtrl: NavController, private navParams: NavParams) {

  ionViewDidEnter() {
    this.slides.autoplayDisableOnInteraction = false;

Note: You need to remove autoplayDisableOnInteraction = "false" on html page.

Old Answer:

You can use autoplayDisableOnInteraction = "false" as shown below.

    <ion-slides  class="slide-css" autoplay="100" loop="true" speed="100" 
                 pager="true" autoplayDisableOnInteraction = "false">


See how it implements on Ionic

Swiper API

disableOnInteraction boolean true Set to false and autoplay will not be disabled after user interactions (swipes), it will be restarted every time after interaction
