Does anyone knows if there's a difference between “iets” and “wat”?

There isn't really. But you can't use 'iets' as a vraagwoord. For example you can't say 'Iets is er?' instead of 'wat is er?' But you can say 'Er is iets' and 'Er is wat'

When do I know when to use iets and when to use wat? Thanks.
