    Welcome.

    They (Subject)
    talked about (Phrasal Verb)
    what needed doing (Object of the Verb)
    what (pronoun)
    needed (Verb)
    doing (Object)

    They talked about what needed doing.

    Subject + Verb + Object

    All the best, :D

    Strange sentence to me -- what needed to be done? What's the difference?

    They talked about what needed to be done/doing.

    'what' functions as a pronoun.
