To check the drain pump first see if you hear it when it is agitating if
it is it is unlikely to be the drain pump. If you hear it in spin or
drain cycle check the filter.Some have a small cover in the lower front
put a screwdriver in the hole and turn counterclockwise to remove. There
will be a cover to remove, water will come out so be prepared with a
towel or wet vac. Clean this out. Other Machines will need to access the
drain pump to get to the filter. This can be done by removing the back panel on some washers. On others you will need to remove the lower panel or complete front panel depending on model. The filter is located inside the large hose from the tub to the pump. Remove the hose and clean the filter.
If you hear the pump making noises you will need to remove the drain
pump and check for obstructions, broken impeller, or not spinning
freely. Remove obstructions if it does not spin freely replace the drain
pump. If you hear it hum replace the pump.
The struts can cause squeaking noise or vibrations. You will need to remove the back panel , top panel, or lower front panel then run machine to check if the noise is coming from the struts. If it is replace the struts
If the motor hums, rattles,or squeals replace the motor. This is easy to do. Remove the back panel then run machine to check for noises.
Check the belt for making noises by removing the rear panel and then running the machine, if it is making any noise replace the belt
To check the rear bearing remove the back panel
and listen for noises or any water leakage around the bearing. If any
noise is heard replace the rear bearing. Check with service manual all
bearings are not repairable. The outer drum may get damaged trying to
replace this bearing on some models.
To remove the front panel, you first need to remove the Top COver / Worktop. It is fastened at the back. Remove or unclip it at the back and push it back and lift the Top off. After which, you will be able to remove all side panels and front panel.
Hope it helps :-)

It's not easy but you need to remove rthe front panel the Drain Pump is on the right side in the back. Poor design for access. Here is a pic if FIXYA will let me post.
What is the issue? ND error on pump out? Do you have the FAV6800A/FAV9800A Service manual? I feel you will need to work on the machine. If so you can't get it from Servicematters,com anymore.........Rich
Here is the pic
Drain Pump is on the right back side. I have the Was Tub removed for Outer Tub bearing replacement. Motor Controler is on the left side.
The pump could get foreign materials in it. This can cause all sorts of problems. This repair manual will show how to access. Page 75 says to tip back the machine and remove 4 screws after removing other items.

Drain pump screen is clogged. If its makeing a bad grinding sound the pump will need to be replaced. Otherwise disasembly of the machine is required to access pump area to clean out screen. Dextrous people can probaly do this from the back or underneath unit. Its difficult and I don't recomend it to beginers or people who arn't handy. Easiest/prefered method: (This is the one I use.)
Method A units that have a bottom access panel. ie: front panel not one seamless peice.
-lean back against wall for easy access.
-remove two #2 square screws form access panel.
-Loosen clamp holding hose to tub. (Big black one around 2" in diameter.)
-remove and clean screen.
-reassemble machine and test pump operation.
Method B units the have seamless front panel.
-remove top. 3 screws @ back, slide top away from machine to remove.
-remove 2 screws holding console onto chasis.
-remove 3 screws @ and behind disp area.
-Remove console. ( tab may be holding to front panel @ middle bottom use putty knife to pry up.)
-remove 4 screws holding front pannel @ top to chasis.
-remove 2 screws holding frong pannel to chasis inside machine. Acess from top. (some models only.)
-remove bottom screws either 4 or 2 usally 4.
-remove two screws holding door lock to front panel
-remove spring from around bellow.
-remove bellow from front pannel
-remove front pannel. Tilts forward and lifts up off supports. (some models only.) or pannel ifs up and off from white tabs in side of chasis.
-unhook wires to door lock from front pannel. (plastic molex tab)
-may now access pump like in method A.
-access pump area
-remove drain hose to pump by looseing clamp and pulling off.
-remove hose to tub by losseing clamp and pulling off.
-remove power connection at back left of pump.
-unscrew two philips screws holding pump too base plate. (only one is really required.)
-clean pump screen or add one if not present.
-replug in power
-test pump operation
Electrically Isolate the machine
To access the pump the front panel needs to be removed, first the machine top needs to be opened,
at the joint between the machine front panel and top insert a flat blade 4" from each side to release the lid catches, tilt back the top to access the internal screws on the front panel and remove the front by lifting off it the bottom brackets.
Ensure the machine is empty of water, to do this lower the waste drain pipe to floor level and clooect any water in a suitable container.
Tilt the machine back 45 degrees and remove the drive belt and bolts for the pump, remove the hoses from the pump, refit in reverse order.
The drum comes out through the front on this one.Take off kick plate and remove screws holding front panel to frame. Take out soap drawer & remove screws behind it. Take off band holding door seal & peel seal back.Remove 2 screws holding door lock &push lock through. Pull control panel forward at left side &slide to right to remove being carefull with board & wiring.Remove screws holding top end of front then lift slightly &remove front.Remove back panel &take wiring off heating element & pump. Disconnect the pump hose at the drum end, disconnect the hose from the soap dispenser, note that wiring is fastened to the drum at several points and will need to be disconnected. Remove panel from behind control board then carefully move everything away from the front of the machine, the drum can now be lifted clear.
Forgot to mention unplugging motor but common sense will prevail.
