Re: Filter on indesit washing machine

Push panel right or left side. Unscrew or turn anti-clock wise, according to your model. Be prepared for some water. Pull this out and clean, refit carefully. Of course it is meant to be removed and cleaned periodically, according to usage. Rate me pl.

Indesit washing not completing cycle, washing very wet (ie not spinning) ny thoughts appreciated

Check the pump filter is not clogged up, this should be at bottom front right of washer, possibly behind a removeable cover.
If clean then it could be the brushes in the motor that need replacing.
Hope this helps.

Indesit WG1234T - is there a filter and spin cycle not effective

If there is no filter located at the bottom right front of washer behind a re- moveable cover, then you need to remove the rear cover of washer.
Locate and remove the large black hose fastened to bottom of drum.
Remove and clean plastic filter inside hose.
Remove hose onto pump, and check for blockage or obstruction here as well.
This should help solve your prob.

Hi i have an indesit wd12x washing machine that does not drain the water. How do i get to the filter to clean it? Thanks

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.

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.

INDESIT Washing Machine

Probably the pump or hose is blocked, remove the cover along the front bottom, of the machine, remove the filter and clean out, ensure the pump impeller is clear of debris and rotates freely.
refit the filter and try again.

Washing Machine not draining

I have just fixed the same problem. At the front - bottom right is the filter - you may have to remove the kick board on your fitted kitchen to see this - put a small dish under to capture water - unscrew half a turn - drain off all the water - then fully unsrew and pull out - I had money and treads from jeans blocking the filter - clean out, replace filter and fully tighten. My machine worked after this. - Steve
