Hi there!

Look inside the drum with a torch placed flat against the steel drum holes. Look at the outlet area - for any stray sock or similar that's stuck.
Sometimes this can be fished out from the gap at the front by the seal with a straightened coathanger. If nothing there-
then continue -

If it is making noises when it should drain, then the area around the pump impellers has a blockage (fabric, bra wire or even a lot of money...well we hope, usually just wire.)

Somtimes you can see the problem when opening the filter to clean it.

If it is the type with no visable filter, You need to turn off power and water,And drain the tub by removing the back drain hose, and lowering it into a bowl on the floor.
Open the back (usually after removing the top, but not always), and look for a pipe leading from the tub base to a motorised pump.
Sometimes there is a filter / U trap just infront of the pump, sometimes it's straight into the pump.
Remove the clip on this hose, and remove (be ready to collect water in there)
You should be able to see the pump vanes - make sure they are free to turn. remove any obstructions. Check the pipe by feeling for any lumps in there, if so fish it out.

Replace clips and reassemble.

If not, contact me again and I'll try and trace the problem further.

The dryer on our Indesit WD 12x has stopped working, any ideas please?

More than likely heater and or thermostat/s problem.
These are located in the top of the washer.
Remove top cover, and you will see a long aluminium box, this is the heater manifold, and the element is inside here, the thermostats are on the top, you will need a meter to test them.
Please rate my solution.

W/Machine won't drain or complete wash cycle (Indesit w1335)

The drain pump could either be blocked or seized? Check the "coin trap" for any foreign material which should be located at the front of the unit behind a small door/panel.

hi friend,
If your washer won't drain, check these:

It spins, but doesn't pump
It doesn't spin or pump
It pumps, but the water returns
It spins, but doesn't pump
If your washer spins but doesn't pump the water out, the drain line is probably clogged. In many
washers, a small sock or other piece of clothing can get between the clothes tub and the outer tub
that holds the water. If the clothing gets between the tubs, it may then get into the drain hose that's
attached to the pump--or even into the pump itself. If it's in the pump, you need to remove the
from the pump and pull the item out.

To remove the sock from the outer tub port, open the washer's main access panel and remove the
large-diameter rubber hose that connects the pump to the bottom of the outer tub. Then, using
needle-nose pliers, try to grab and remove the clothing through the port.

Sometimes you can't remove the stuck clothing from below. Then you have to remove the agitator,
top of the outer drum shield, and inner clothes tub. This isn't easy to do--and you may need special tools--so you might
be happier getting a qualified appliance repair technician to do the job.

If the drain line isn't plugged, the problem may be with your pump. Even if the pump appears to be
turning, the internal impeller may be broken. If so, you need to replace the pump.

It doesn't spin or pump
If your washer doesn't spin or pump water out but the motor is running, your washer probably
has a frozen pump pulley. If so, you need to replace the pump. To check the pulley, remove the
pump from the washer and try to rotate the pulley manually. If it doesn't turn freely--if it's frozen
or stiff--replace it.

It pumps, but the water returns
If the water that pumps out of the machine goes back into the machine after the spin cycle, your
washer may be siphoning the water from a laundry tub that has a slow drain, back into the
washer. The usual remedy for this is to improve the draining of the laundry tub. (Is something stuck
in the drain?) Also, check for these problems:

* If the drain hose reaches more than about 4 inches into the laundry tub, cut off the excess.

* If your drain hose is lower than the washer's cabinet, install an air gap/siphon break assembly.
