Question about Indesit Washing Machines
Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters. The motor is unable to drain all of the water in the allotted time.
Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking filters and motors ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and held in by a round cover/knob.
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!
Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Tips for a great answer:
In all occasions it is important that your observation
is most important and so is vital to the identification /rectification and
solution. If you have noticed that water has leaked then as the drain hose
pump/valve and fittings are located on the underside of the machine it is
important that you look for possible leaks here. In some cases the drain hose
would be clogged at the drain end to outlet of the house and so there will be
back flushing resulting in overflow to the outside. Also the drain pump/valve
can be clogged or the drain hose clamps can be loose on the grip which can all
cause the leak to occur. Removing and cleaning the drain pump/valve, tightening
of the hose is also very important. Also water can leak if there are gaps on
the front door gaskets and must be checked but this will happen only during the
cycle and not on the drain cycle end.
