I removed the pump on my 05 GVW9959KO2 (won't drain) just hums) and I can turn the impeller (seems clear, but sloppy at the center spline? I didn't see any allen screws to remove the cover?? Did all the pumps have a removable cover?? How do you clean the Tub sump drain?
Posted solution had a link to the manual. This was the key. Problem was lint in the drain pump impeller. Necessarey to remove pump cover (no need to dismount pump) with an allen wrench. Note of caution the pump housing is soft and the allen screws can strip out.

something is blocking the pump.unplug first.take drain hose and hold down at floor level with a container to catch water.it may be a coin or a wire from a bra,hair bobble etc feel in the pump to see if the impeller is free to move.if it is then suspect something in the hose between drum and pump like a sock.that restricts flow enough to put up fault code
Blocked or clogged water input line
Sucking air from a leak, not enough water thru system
Excessive debris in strainer baskets
Filter needs to be backwashed
Filter needs new sand or new cartridge
Filter needs to be taken apart and "fingers" cleaned
Filter Pump Impeller is obstructed
Filter motor is in-correctly wired
Filter motor bushings need replacement
Filter motor bearings are worn
Filter motor is "shot"
This sounds like a blockage in the small hose connected to the waste pump. Take the lid off and find the waste pump down near the bottom of the machine below the drum, then remove any one of the hoses connected to the waste pump and check inside the pump to make sure the fan can spin using your fingures, maybe a small kids sock or similar jammed in there, if nothing in the pump check both pipes on the waste pump
Check the drain line for kinks or obstructions. You can take a flashlight, remove the hose from the pump and look into the suction port of the pump. Check for anything clogging the pump. (like the occasional stray sock). Also check the pump impellers for broken or missing blades and ensure that the pump impeller spins freely. If any blades are broken/missing or if you cannot get the impeller to spin freely, the pump is defective and will need replaced. Hopefully it is just a clogged pump or drain line.There is the possibility that the pump is gone or going on it, or maybe a lint clog of some kind, or even a small sock or something. You can check the lines and re-install. Check around all the seals if a front loader to make sure the drain holes are not blocked.
Or try to unplug unit and let it sit for 1 minute and plug it back in. See if this will reset the unit.
Or sometimes it is from an uneven load. Towels with t shirts, not a good idea....1 t shirt....maybe......4 or more with a load of towels not so good. Without an even load, the balance is thrown off and the load will not spin properly, therefore, leaving water behind in the clothes.
More likely to be a clogged pump at the impeller. Manually drain tub, remove front cover and disconnect hoses from pump. Remove pump from motor mount and look inside, small socks and womens thongs clog these all the time. You may have to replace the pump.
You have either go a coin or grip stuck in the pump which you may be able to see from the lint trap door
Lay the drain hose down into a bucket or outside the door (Take off any clips that may be holding it to the back of the machine first) that will drain the water off.
Remove the lint trap and see what is in there take a wooden barbeque skewer and try to turn the impeller of the pump, if it turns free then you need to take the hose off from the drum to the main inlet to the pump to see if there is anything in there
(A sock or other small piece of clothing may have been sucked down into the hose leading to the pump).
Worst case scenario is that the pump has failed and the only test for that is to put a meter on it and check for continuity
The only way for water to be exhausted from the Eurotech washer unit is for the water pump to function correctly. Check for operation of the water pump which can be heard with a faint hum during the water exhaust cycle. Also check to see if the drain port is blocked etc eg with a childs sock. To check for this open the lint filterdoor,remove the lint filter and using an inspection mirror look around paying attention to the 2 ports inside the filter cavity. If filter ports are clear then suspect the water pump. If you can hear the water pump working but the water is not exiting your washer then it is likely the 4 prong impeller inside the water pump has sheered off its shaft within the pump. Change pump and this should solve your problem.
Check the pump impeller for debris. Coins, socks, draw strings - etc. - can get sucked in and jam or slow down the pump.
To check this you have to go into the washer from beneath (unplugged, and manually drained or wet/dry vaccuumed out).
Remove the clamps which hold the water tubes onto the pump motor, taking care not to spew water into the motor windings (they're open).
May have to put a finger or probe into the plastic pump tubes to see if there is something in there.
If no debris, could be a bad or failing pump. The new design is a single piece of pump/impeller, and you cannot disconnect the pieces without a special tool.
The old style pump/impeller can be separated and is a metal serrated shaft into a plastic impeller hole that can strip out when debris jams the impeller.
E20 .... I ALSO HAVE AN E20 WHICH I BELIEVE HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH THE FACT THAT THE WATER IS NOT DRAINING FROM THE UNIT. MY ISSUE IS THAT THE PROPELLER IN THE PUMP BROKE AND WILL NOT PULL THE WATER TO DRAIN THE MACHINE. LISTEN TO IT WHEN YOU TRY TO RESTART THE CYCLE AND IF YOU CAN HEAR A RATTLE NOISE FROM THE BOTTOM OF THE MACHINE YOUR PUMP MAY NEED TO BE REPLACED OR NO NOISE MAY INDICATE THE PUMP HAS BURNED OUT. ONE OTHER THINK YOU MAY WANT TO CHECK BEFORE YOU GET SET ON REPLACING THE PUMP IS TO CHECK YOUR COIN COLLECTOR. REMOVE THE FRONT BOTTOM PANEL AND YOU WILL SEE A RUBBER BAG LOOKING THING THAT IS ATTACHED TO YOUR PUMP AND TUBE WITH CLAMPS. YOU MAY HAVE LINT OR A SOCK STUCK IN THE CATCH WHICH MAY BE PREVENTING WATER FROM DRAINING. I MUST WARN YOU IF YOU CANNOT GET YOUR MACHINE TO DRAIN BE PREPARED FOR A MINI FLOOD. HOPE THIS HELPS.
pump is likely not clean yet
there is a chance that the pump impeller is loaded with lint, inside the pump body
not sure about front loader dissassembly,
usuallly front panel removes and the pump is accessible on the front side of the motor retained by two spring clips.
if you clear the muck quickly the lint wont damage the impeller
