Question about AEG Washing Machines

This means that there is an issue with pumping water out from the machine.
-The hose for water outlet is bent
-The water outlet is more than 1metre above the bottom of the machine.
-The emptying pump is clogged up
-If connected to a waterlock, the waterlock may be clogged up.
If the emptying pump is clogged up, the solution is to empty the machine manually. First turn the machine off and disconnect the electricity. There is a small lid on the bottom right corner of the machine. Inside you will find a small hose. Ready a small box for collecting the water. Warning: The water may be hot. Allow the water some time to cool down. Remove the plug from the hose (screw it out at first, then pull the rest out). You may have to empty it in a couple of sessions. Just put the plug back in if the box gets full of water. repeat until no more water flows out. Put the plug back in. Now put a towel underneath the front of the machine for collecting water that flows out when you open the lid for the pump. You can open the lid of the emptying pump by turning it counter clockwise. It is right next to the small hose you just used. Pull the lid out, and remove what is clogging up the pump. Before you slide the lid back in, you should check that the pump goes around. You can do this with a pen and a flashlight. Use the pen to move the pump around. It is normal for it to move in "bursts" (that it's not revolving smoothly). Slide the lid back into the tracks on the inside of the housing of the pump, and close it. Now you may reconnect the electricity, and the machine should work.
