Re: Indesit W123 s UK water overflows from the detergent...
My machine clicked round, although I did not have the water overflow. I managed to unlock the pump filter, on the front of the machine under the lower panel. This was fiddly. I removed a coin. The machine worked again, but two cycles later starting clicking round the timer.
I called an engineer - it worked when he was here, he checked the element and pump and said it was OK. When he had gone, it clicked round the timer again! He came again, and once again it worked perfectly when he was here.
Eventually I checked the pump filter again, and removed another two coins. At the moment - it is working!

More than likely that the heater element has failed,
This is usually located at the rear of the washer, remove rear panel, and test with a meter, this is the only sure way of testing it to see if it is o/k.
Hi there you can order the part from indesit and should not cost alot and yes it should withstand the temp check that if you are using the hot tap to the machine turn down the water thermostat as maybe too hot.
does the water empty from the machine? if not you will more than likely have something trapped in the pump. the best thing to do is run the grey outlet hose into a bucket, this will empty the machine. then tilt machine back (make sure it wont fall) then remove the plastic kick plate on the front bottom, behind this you should see the round plastic filter this will unscrew and pull out, you may need a couple of towels put on the floor as there is usually water left in the pipes. clean any debris and screw filter back in, should only need to be hand tight. replace kick plate and then give it try.
hope this helps
