Question about Washing Machines
Problem possibly caused by blockage in drain pump filter. If you remove the bottom plynth you will find a black screw cap (about 2" diamiter). BEFORE you unscrew you will have to make sure you have plenty of towels and low bowls because all the water from the drum will flood your kittchen if you unscrew!!!
How I do it is that i (with someones help) try and pull the washing machine out . Then i tip it up 45 degrees With someone holding the washing machine I place plenty of towels underneath the washing machine and SLOWLY open the filter.
I bowl will catch a lot of water but it will still be messy.
When all the water has drained pull the filter out completely and you will probably find all sorts of debris there.
If the filter is clean look inside the filter body just in case there is a coin or two there as these will jam the drain pump and stop it from draining.
Hope this helps

Many of our newer Indesit Washing Machines have a series of indicator lights, which flash to indicate a possible fault on your installation or simply to let you know a problem occurred whilst you were away from your Indesit Washing Machine.
Pre wash light flashing
Indicates a failure of your Indesit Washing Machine to fill correctly. Check your fill hoses for a blockage, a leak, a kink or to make sure that they are turned on.
Wash light flashing
Indicates that your programme dial has been moved from its original position. Simply returning the wash dial to its original position will restore the light to its original status.
Spin light flashing
Indicates that the Indesit Washing Machine has considered the wash load to be excessively un-balanced. Open up the door of the Indesit Washing Machine, re-distribute the garments and retry the spin to resolve this.
End light flashing
Indicates that the Indesit Washing Machine has reached the end of a wash programme.
Wash, rinse and spin lights all lit at the same time would indicate a possible blockage in your under sink wastes system. Check out the additional informationin our 'My Indesit Washing Machine Will Not Empty'
