What other information can I add ? The haier stopped mid rinse and now wont respond to any programme attempts. There is a buzz showing that it is live - but plays dead ! :) So thanks for your offer to fix it Fixya , but I guess I will join the que with the others as you can't fix it from a distance .

Machine button is just clicking round and now nothing happening. Think something is maybe jammed in drain. How do I sort this. Indesit wm12x

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Here are my complete guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning!

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

Hi i have an indesit w 123s washing machine, that set to any program it doesnt move on it just does that setting,then if you turn the machine off and set it to end program you can reset to rinse and the...

hello try restting it before you bin it
  1. Turn the washing machine off with the on off button.
  2. Turn the selector knob to a dot, or any off position
  3. Turn the washing machine back on and watch for rapid flashing on the neon light
  4. Turn the washing machine off and select the new program (or maybe spin)
  5. Turn it back on and the new program should start
NOTE: Resetting the timer selector knob as shown above may stop the clicking round, but if your washing machine has a fault, the clicking round may return when your washing machine encounters the fault again. If your washing machine's program selector knob is clicking round on its own, then read the section above Washing machine stops with lights flashing hope it helps

My dial keeps clicking round on my indesit wm12x, have ordered a new part, do you think this is the problem.

I doubt it will solve the problem, as the part you are referring to is a selector switch and not the timer, the problem is more likely to be a faulty control unit.

Indesit wm12x wont finish cycle just clix through dial,can u help me ?

i suspect that you may not be draining water,if you watch the light flash it will flash at 1 sec interviles it will then stop for approx 3 secs and then start flashing again at 1 sec int,if you wait for it to stop for aprox 3 secs.when it start flashing again count how many flashes til it stops again for the 3 sec,thats is your fault code,if it is 10 or 5,then its will be your pump blocked or inop.
