Disconnect from mains. Remove rear panel and water will probably come out. This water is being flung by the fan onto the heater hence tripping the electric.
cause of water being here is a blockage in the condenser stopping flow into water chamber or possibly but unlikely, failure of the pump

The dryer fan or dryer thermistor (thermostat) is faulty.
If the fan is working, then replace the thermistor, or check for broken wire.

Fit new timer switch to avoid heating if you bypass it it will go flat out and burn out the element.

There is a small thermostat button ontop of the Heater mechanism which has tripped . It has either a red dot or blue dot ontop. Use a pin or opened up paper clip and push through the red wax. It will go click and it is reset. .
It sometimes trips out with a F code which normally trips the machine off because it thinks the Heater unit is on fire.
There is a small disk which costs about £15 to buy which you can change. You will need HEX screwdriver set to change and open up the Heater matrisx to clean the fluff off the element.

It is a tricky job but the heater thermostat switch has tripped as it senses something burning. Probably a little bit of fluff on the heater element inside the heater unit.. There are 2 switches on top of this heater unit. One where the 2 blue wires goon the top left of the 3rd picture and the other which has a tall black wire connector on shown in the middle of the 3rd picture. Remove that connector and undo the holding screw . You can then reset the switch.
The switch is a small circular switch hidden beneather the connector on the photos. This thermostat switch has a yellow. red dot ontop of it. If you use a small pin or needle and press into that dot you will hear it tick back into place. you have reset the switch now.
You will probably need to clean the inside of the heater element unit to get rid of the fluff particles or it will keep switching off.
To take this apart you will need a set of Star screwdrivers. Its a bit tricky but you will be able to undo the star screws and take them all out. I will add some photos to show you the unit apart.
You can see the build up of fluff on the photos i have added from my hotpoint WD860 heater unit.

This is a tricky job and takes about an hour due to the screw being awkward to take off and put on again but mine hasnt faulted for 2 years since sorting it out.
You can buy a new Thermostat switch which is about 10 pounds sterling from Hotpoint or other

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

Someone accidentally put it into TEST mode and to get it out of the test mode follow this:-- Unplug the washer for 4 minutes and then plug it back and press start, the display should go daft. Press start again and the display should settle down. Now press the on/off button and the start button at the same time and hold them down for a few seconds until the display shows d-end or d-off. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

See my other reply to your request. It took me less than 2 secs on a search of your listed model to find a manual. One thing it says in the troubleshooting section is that if it fails to start with something showing on the display is to press and hold the start button for at least 3 seconds and the machine should start. See imagebank.indesitcompany.co.uk/brochures_online

Where is your user handbook? If you don't have one go online to the OEM who have most current models available for free download. If not get the model and serial number and search online. Call a local appliance agent for your brand, if they have a repair facility they may have a man who know's?
