Question about Indesit W 123 Front Load Washer
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.
