Indesit washer dryer 'omega 1200' WDG1295W won't drain!

Please help! I'm in a shared house and we have an old-looking Indesit 'Omega 1200' washer dryer (model no - WDG1295W) that came with the house.(although NOT the landlord's problem...they must have known before we moved in that it was faulty but did nothing!) Anyway, yesterday I washed a half-load of tea-towels. The washer finished its cycle but did not drain the water. I've tried putting the dial on setting '18' - drain but not spin but it still won't drain the water. It makes a whirring noise like it's trying to drain but no water goes. I can open the door so I took my soaking wet tea-towels out. I can't work out how to unblock this machine - there doesn't seem to be a drawer at the front. Please advise what the problem is and what I can do about it (short of buying a new one) please?!! Thankyou

Sounds like the pump is possibly faulty, or there is a blockage
There should be a removable plastic cover at the bottom front of the m/c, behind this you will see a round plastic cover.
This is the pump filter, unscreit and unblock it if it is full of ****!!!
Hopefully this should solve your problem.
Please leave feedback.

Havent seen one for quite a while. First thing is to drain the machine by lowering the drain hose into a bowl or bucket. Take off plate at back of machine and locate large pipe going from drum to pump.Take off at pump end and check pipe and pump for blockages. If none are found then remove pump and take to nearest second hand appliance shop and get replacement.Probably cost £10 depends where you live but cheaper than new machine.
Any problems will be happy to help.

HI, My Indesit Omega 1200 washer/dryer (although no longer dries) now won't spin. It makes a noise as if it is going to but can't seem to muster up any energy to turn around. Could youplease advise on...

You will need to check on the voltage to the motor to confirm thet the motor receives the correct voltage to move around. If not the prrogram ccontroller is faulty as it is not delivering the right voltage.
If there is voltage in the motor circuit, then if the motor runs with a capacitor assistance the capacitor must be taken out and checked for low value. If the capacitor does not retain charge while it is connected to mains , then you must replace.
please attempt this test only if familiar with high voltage.
If not check the motor for any mechanical blocks.

Need to replace carbon brushes on Indesit Omega 1200

The brushes are located inside the motor. Remove rear panel of washer, remove drive belt, from motor and drum, unplug the motor, undo screws that secure motor, and remove motor.
At the opposite end to the motor pulley, you will find the brushes located, undo 2 screws that secure the brushes, remove and replace brushes.
I would also check the pump filter, which should be located behind a removable panel at bottom of washer, unscrew anti-clockwise, remove and clean.
Please rate my fixya solution.

Washing machine wont spin

Your machine may not be receiving adequate voltage to start. Make sure your machine is plugged in. Also, check the circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are in the correct positions. Or check to make sure no fuses in the fuse panel are blown. Try plugging something else into the same outlet. If it won't work either, then there is likely something wrong with the power outlet. Any of these could be the reason power is not getting to your machine. Also, refrain from using an extension cord to plug your machine in.
