If you experience a problem where the washer does not drain properly or the drain pump makes excessive noise, here's the information you need to check the drain pump:

Symptom: PUMP IS RUNNING, BUT NOT DRAINING PROPERLY.

1. Unplug the washer while servicing inside the unit.
2. Remove the lower kick panel under the door by removing the three 7mm screws under the bottom edge of the panel. HINT: Use a couple of blocks of wood to prop up the front feet of the washer to gain better access to the screws. Once the screws are removed the panel should drop down, and then pull off. If the panel becomes stuck, a slight tap on either side will dislodge it.
3. Locate the drain pump. It will be located directly under the wash tub (it is the only pump this washer has).
4. There is an access removal cover on the pump that can be removed to clean out the trap. BEFORE doing this, it is strongly recommended that you remove all residual water from the wash tub & drain line or you will have about a gallon or so inside your washer and on the floor to clean up.
5. Here's a helpful way of quickly removing the residual water. If you own a wet/dry shop vac, remove the drain hose from the standpipe at the wall and pull a vacuum with the shop vac. This will empty the wash tub, pump and drain lines. If you don't own a shop vac, grab a bunch of old towels and open the access on the pump slowly so that it comes out at a trickle. Allow the towels to soak up the majority of the water. Close the access and stop the water if you need to get additional towels.
6. Open the pump access and remove once you have all the water drained. Check the drain pump for foreign objects and debris. Check the pump impeller and make sure there's nothing caught in it. Items as small as toothpicks or cotton swabs have been known to stop this pump from working.
7. Clean out the pump thoroughly and reinstall the access cover. Make sure the cover is snug, but do not over tighten.
8. Place the drain hose back in the standpipe (IMPORTANT - DO NOT FORGET!).
9. With the bottom panel still off, plug the washer back in and select the following on the operator console - DRAIN SPIN, NO SPIN, and then press any button under OPTIONS 4 times (it must be the same button). "C00" will show on the console display as the washer begins diagnostics mode.
10. Check the drain pump for leaks as the washer fills. The pump is gravity filled and will hold water even it is not pumping. Allow washer to run through diagnostics until it begins the wash tub tumble cycle.
11. At this point, you can stop the diagnostics procedure by pressing PAUSE/CANCEL 2 times. The drain pump energizes and the washer will begin to drain.
12. If the drain pump works normal and there are no leaks detected, reinstall the bottom panel and tighten screws.


NOTE: It is normal to have residual water left inside the wash tub under the wash basket. This is why it is important to leave the door ajar when not in use so this water does not become sour.

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 W103 On program 7 starts to work then controller just clicks round and round by itself.


I've found you need to reset the program cycle for this. It's annoying to lose the soap and conditioner but generally, if you download the manual and follow the reset instructions (which for me also involved turning the machine off at the mains aswell as holding the power button down with the machine on stop setting) it usually works ok.

I have purchased a new door rubber seal(indesit W103) as the old one was split. i have removed the old one but cant work out how to put the new one on. It looks like theres a technique to it. please help


Fantastic walk-through, thank you! These instructions also work for the Indesit WIA111
Getting the seal back on is tricky - if you feel you have to really force in back on (like a tyre on a bike) then you are probably doing it wrong.
I found once I had the knack it was best to stasrt again in the least accessible place

Three day old Indesit washing machine


Is it a maytag? My maytag front load washing machine had 2 long bolts with plastic braces on them, to keep the drum still during shipping. Mine would bang and shake all over. I got the book out before I finally figured it out. I had to take the back cover off and remove the bolts and plastic braces over them. They look like they' 8 inches long or so. It works great now.
