Question about Washing Machines
You need to unplug the machine from the mains and turn off the water supply. Then remove the lower cover, looking at it from the front where the glass door is, so you can see the water pump. On the water pump there is a round cover, turn it counter clockwise to get it loose, then the the filter will come out. You may find some interesting things in there! Small coins, gum, paper, clipsm nails and jewellery are normal. Clean it thoroughly and screw it back on. Make sure the machine is powered off at the mains for 30 minutes in total to reset the computer and clear the fault display. Reconnect the mains power and turn the water supply back on. The machine should now operate correctly

Thanks for using FixYa. Please follow this procedure to check and remove the drain pump for your washer, also check the schematics--
You will need to drain all the water out of yourwasher by hand. Then tip the washer backwards and remove the lower bottompanel. There are 3 or 4 screws in the front holding the bottom panel on.Once the screws are removed then you can accesses the drain pump near themiddle right area. The drain pump is a black or grey plastic device about 6inches in diameter. There are 2 large hoses connected to the drain pump. Removethe hoses to see if you can see what is jamming the pump. If you find somethinginside then remove the jam and you should be good to go, otherwise you willhave to replace your drain pump motor as sometimes lint will get inside andwrap around the bearing and you can't access it to take it out.
