SOURCE: the belt slipped off my

Hi, If the belt shows no sign of wear and its not torn or cracked then you have nothing to loose in trying to put it back on, some machines have a tensioning bolt that can be undone slightly so the motor can be moved down to tension the belt if it seems loose and others do not, but if you anre unsure you can always get a new belt anyway.

Another consideration is that the machines bearings may be getting worn, making the pully go out of alignment (hence the belt coming off), check this by gently pushing the front rim of the stainless tub up and down, if you can feel movement it may be worth getting it checked for bearing failure with a view to getting them replaced.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: washer filled with water but won't do anything

AT the time that you describe, the lid switch must be closed. Check that switch.

The drain hose for the washing machine is pushed too far down the standpipe causing the water to siphon out of the machine. Look at the diagram below:

My Indesit washing maching WG 1234 T, just keeps filling up and will not start its wash cycle.

Usually, when water fills up to a desired level, for example: choosing a small, medium, or large load. The floating switch will trigger a signal to turn on the motor to turn to start the agitation. In this case, the floating switch is bad or the floating mechanism is not working. Therefore the machine didn't do anything. It needs to access to inside the back panel to check it out. Cheers.

I, Just got a new washing machine about 2 weeks ago it is a indesit WIB101. The Problem Is That When The washing is finished, the next day it still has 3-4 inches of water left in the bottom of the drum

i bassume the water is coming in after cycle finished. source can be two things.
water valve leaking - not probable on a new machine but to check, turn water off and see if water comes in.
if drain is plumbed into a spigot on the sink trap, when you empty the sink, some of the water will go down the drain hose. to cvure, take the drain hose up in a swan neck as high as possible

Most Indesit washing machines have hidden filters and are not meant to be customer accessible. If you are referring to the incoming water supply, then in some models, it would be immediately after the connector; if on the other hand, you are referring to the lint/fluff collector/filer, then there is no real filter but rather is a part of the drain system. Normally it is at the very bottom of the machine. You need to remove the lower front panel. There would be 3 clips that holds it in place. Once the inside is exposed, there would be a black circular cover at the right hand side. Unscrew it out and clean the inside. It would normally be filled with water and some other "stuff" so pls have cleaning materials handy and/or anything to absorb the spilling water.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
