Question about Indesit W 123 Front Load Washer
I have a Indesit WM12X washing machine, with the following issue. During the rinse cycle prior to spin the drum does not appear to drain quickly or fully and the machine will not enter the spin cycle. If you drain the drum manually then set the program to spin it carries out this function. Do I have a problem with the pump or filter / blockage. Would it also be cost effective to repair or should I just replace the machine. The machine has given me no other problems. Regards Colin
I have just fixed the same problem. At the front - bottom right is the filter - you may have to remove the kick board on your fitted kitchen to see this - put a small dish under to capture water - unscrew half a turn - drain off all the water - then fully unsrew and pull out - I had money and treads from jeans blocking the filter - clean out, replace filter and fully tighten. My machine worked after this. - Steve

Same thing happened to me but the obstruction was in the hose at the back of the filter and coudnt be seen in the filter. i paid 150euro to engineer to fix this. i watched him fix it and can do it myself now. they rob you for something that is so simple to fix.
