a little late to solve your problem...if it ever happens again, change the 16 micro farrad capacitor in the upper rear right corner of the machine. This capacitor controls the starting torque in any motor mode

SOURCE: My AEG lavamat turbo 16810
I'm not sure if this model has an access panel with 2 screws at the bottom, but if not, An easy way to access is by tilting the washer against the wall and removing the bottom panel, Should be 4 screws. from there you can remove the hose and retrieve the debris from the pump most likely change. have a fairly good size bowl and towels close by to catch the water. make sure the washer is disconnected from it's power source. Hope this helps.

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Here are my complete and generic 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!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters 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 (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
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. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!
