Hi. I have an indesit WD12X. The drum is half filling with water when switched off. Has anyone any ideas what this could be? I have cleaned out the filter, but it has not helped.

The valves that are used to fill the machine are worn or are filling with debris. You will have to purchase spares.

    Thanks Brad. What should I be searching for on spares websites?

  • Brad Brown Nov 21, 2014

    If you put the model number in the search bar for a site, you should come up with all the spares for that machine that are sold. Look for the fill or supply or hot and cold water inlet valves.

SOURCE: Hi i have an indesit

Your model of washer dryer is fittted with a self cleaning pump, and may not have a filter fitted.
To check if it has, remove lower plinth at bottom of m/c, and if there is a plastic panel there ,remove that as well.
If there is a filter fitted, you will see it at the bottom right front, it has a round cover, unscrew anti clockwise, remove and clean filter.
Pleas leave a fixya rating if you consider my solution appropiate to your query.
Thankyou.

SOURCE: we have an Indesit washer

Hi,

Immediate thought was the belt but you already checked that. Reading your message, you seem to be indicating the washer goes through the wash cycle and does everything except turn the drum, i.e. it fills and drains and the timer control knob advances as you would expect. This machine has an electro-mechanical timer rather than electronic, so if it advances through the program correctly, I would exclude this from my initial checks, but I'd still come back to it later.

Washing machines aren't that complicated, so if all of the above is true, the obvious assumption would be the drive motor. You've obviously opened up the machine to check the belt, so have you tested the motor with an ohm / multi-meter?

Please confirm the correct operation of the timer and whether you have tested the motor and I will try to assist you further. I check messages regularly, so if you post back here I should reply fairly quickly. Make sure you reply from within this page - don't post a new help request!

Regards,
BElectric

My WD 12X machine is not drying the clothes. They get hot but not dry. Is there a filter somewhere that needs to be cleaned?


Presuming that this is an Indesit WD12X.

Yes, there is a filter at the bottom left of the machine (It can be clearly seen in the illistration on Page 14 of the manual, figure 6).

If you don't have a manual, you can download a PDF of it here:
http://www.indesit.co.uk/indesit/_pdf/manuals/19503326500_UK-USA-AUS.pdf

It's highly likely that the water isn't getting evacuated because the filter is blocked and so there is just too much water to dry. Unscrew the filter, clean and replace. I'm amazed to discover that (so far as I can see) The manual never even mentions the filter! Well done Indesit

Indesit WIXL85 water level


On a normal wash cycle, you will see very little if any water sloshing around, this is quite normal on todays washers.
You shuold see a lot more on the rinse cycle, as it is a higher fill.
It is usual to more less fill the compartment with powder, unless you are only washing a few items, then half fill it.
Hope this helps.
