Question about Indesit W 123 Front Load Washer
No it would not cause the water to flood from the bottom. As a pest control professional i suggest u use a dust pesticide (boric dust or D.E). It last longer and works great for roaches. One of the biggest reasons you would see a roach come out of the pipe opening is because it is a moisture source, and all insects need moisture(water), it is also a nice dark area possibly cool, for them to be content in. Now what you do is using a "bulb duster" u lightly apply dust down into that spout you have your machine house into, be sure not to use to much. then put a couple glue traps behind youre machines to help you monitor insect activity.
knowing what kind of roach you are dealing with helps greatly as well.

Unfortunately a lot of us have the straight pipe for a drain that you describe. With no trap it is a source of entry for bugs from the sewer and vent pipe. I have the drain from my washer in the pipe with the rest of the opening covered over with duct tape, As long as you don't block or kink the drain pipe you should have no problem closing the area around the drain pipe. I've been running mine that way for over 20 years now! Thanks for using fixya!

Tips for a great answer:
Hi - I understand you will like to know where to find pump and check for clogs. Try the following steps below and hope it is helpful:
To completely clear any clogs in the washing machine drain you will use a pipe auger (snake). Start at the roof plumbing vent and drop cable to roughly 10 or 15 feet past the actual drain. If there is a clog present, the snake will bring up a chunk of debris. Remove it from the top of the vent and discard.
The drain hose is visible toward the bottom of this washing machine. It is held in place by a clamp or a couple of screws.
Remove the drain hose from the back of the washing machine. This is normally held in place by a clamp or a couple of screws. When a drain backup occurs, pieces of debris can lodge in the hose, causing clogs and odors.
Soak the hose in a bucket of warm bleach water.
Soak the drain hose in a bucket of warm water mixed with 1 cup of bleach. Look to see if the line is free of obstructions. Run a small length of clothes hanger through the hose to clear any hard debris.
Reattach drain hose and connect to drain pipe.
Reattach the drain hose using a screwdriver or pliers. Insert the hose into the washing machine drain. Be sure it is all the way into the drain opening.
Run the washer through a full cycle with 2 cups of bleach added.
Cycle the washer with warm water and 2 cups of bleach. The bleach will help remove any odor-causing particles in the machine and drain hose. Running the washing machine through a cycle will help flush away any remnants of the drain pipe clog.

this sounds like a syphoning problem this means the outlet /drain pipe at the back of the machine has been pushed to far into the drain upstand pipe causing the water to syphon straight through the machine make sure that the drain pipe is only part way down the drain pipe, hope this works for you
