Plug off the wall. Open up behind, you will find a thin tube, maybe tranparent or black coming down from the control panel to the exit area (pump area) of your machine. Carefully disconnet this from above and blow into it, it should be free, if not clear it, if kinked or broken replace.
If this does not work, its your solenoid valve at the entrance point of your machine, top right, where the water is received. Just change this. If all works fine rate me please.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
I would gently suggest as a first step (sorry but no promises!) that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter. So many 'faults' are caused by blocked filters and many machines will not even go to spin or release the door lock if there is any water still left inside.
Here are my complete guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!
REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!
Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Hi, Has all the water gone out of the machine? Try it on another spin cycle if it opens then the drain filter or pump could be blocked.

Insufficient heating during washing Usually a heater failure but possibly the thermostat or NTC temperature sensor or wiring to either.
