Find the drain pump (on most front loaders, it's at the bottom of the machine at the front - often with an access hatch).
Open it up (you may want to tip the machine backwards and put a basin underneath to catch the water - and be prepared to close up again if the basin gets full before the machine is fully drained). Check that the pump impeller isn't jammed with a collection of old coins.
My next move would usually be to set the machine going in a part of the cycle where the drain pump is supposed to be running, and to give the impeller a quick flip with my fingertips (taking great care to avoid injury). If the pump doesn't run until you flick it, but then starts, this is a sure sign that you need to replace the pump motor - a quick, cheap and easy fix.
If the pump starts by itself, the the problem is more likely to be one of blocked hoses.
If the pump won't start at all, either by itself or when you flick the impeller, you need to check whether the pump is getting electricity. Do this by disconnecting the machine from the mains, connecting a voltmeter across the two terminals on the pump, then switching back on and selecting a bit of the cycle where the pump is meant to run. If you see mains voltage, then again you want to change the pump motor. If you don't, then check all the associated wiring before starting to look at the main timer. Disconnect the power before removing the voltmeter connections.

Hello. I got error code C9 on a LAVAMAT 86800. It pumped in water, and it pumps out water. You can select pump in or out....But the motor dont turn. It will not sentrifuge. So I bought new carbon brush'es on the net. One of them were totally wore down. Now it works. They lasted for 10 years.

SOURCE: What means error code
C9 Indicates Motor Fault. It seems that the Carbon Brushes have Worn out.
Replace it and more likely it would Fix the Problem.Once you replace that, you need to put the machine into Service Mode to Reset the Error.
Steps for Reset the Error Code
1. Press and Hold the Prewash and Soaking Buttons Together.
2. Whilst Holding them, Turn the Dial from Off one Click Anti Clockwise
Note - If problem persists, Check the motor plug for broken wires and check the state of the carbon brushes.
Let me know, if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
