You probably have a blocked drain hose - the most common cause is a coin or a button but sweetie wrappers & paper are just as bothersome. Turn off the machine & unplug. Pull the machine forward so that you can access the rear. The drain hose is at the bottom of the rear of the machine and is held in place by a very strong spring-loaded clip or else a jubilee clip. This needs to be removed & will result in the water inside the machine & hose draining out so make sure you have plenty of containers & cloths/towels etc to catch & mop up. The blockage is usually located just inside the hose. Remove anything you find. Also check the hole on the machine where the hose attaches. Re-attach hose. Clean up, put machine back and switch on. Also check filter for clogging (see manual). Run machine on rinse & spin cycle. Hopefully that should do it. Good luck.

Wib111 drains but not spinning, also repeating cycle

Check your fault codes. I have had to raise the discharge hose to 1" to 1 1/2" above the back of the washer, then connect to the drain tube. Height of the discharge hose can cause cycle to not operate properly, like fill and drain at the same time and won't cycle properly.

Indesit wib111 leaking from pump

This that unscrews is a filter cover, it does have to come out and will be restricted by something thats blocking it, without being too forceful it will have to be removed so the "catch area" can be cleared of objects, like pins and maybe a sock, then the cover can be screwed back in and made secure to stop it leaking (engineer of 20 years experience)

Hi, my switch keeps going around and around without stopping

Hi I fixed the problem by removing the filter at the bottom right hand corner of the washing machine and removing 2 x £1 coins that had got stuck there
