If you remove the bottom panel on the front, there should be 2 screws at the bottom of it, you will see the pump housing. On the front of that housing is a knob. Unscrew it and clean out anything that is in the filter area. *water will come out when you unscrew cap. have a bucket or a few towels ready*

The pump does not circulate water after priming

Make sure you are in pool mode, and if you are not circulating, then you have a clogged impellar. Make sure the basket is empty and good, clean the impellar, backwash, or clean filter, put valves into pool mode, prime pump, and you will be ok.

Oil pump does not work

Checlk the oil worm gear is driving the pump. If this isnt the problem then try the following:-

The type of oil pump fitted to these models is prone to getting blocked.
Remove the oil pump. The gear on top should turn freely, give the pump a clean and clean the oil pipe to the tank by removing the oil cap and blowing through with an air line. If the oil in the tank contains alot of dirt, empty/clean and replace. The filter on the oil is an open plastic cage type and often will draw large sawdust particles through it. Easily rectified tho.

What is error code F2 on my AEG washing machine

I believe that this is a "Pump Blockage" error. You need to locate and clean out your empty pump filter (Probably behind a little door on the bottom of the machine. You may also need to check the empty pipe and the drain it goes into are also clear. 99% probability of a blocked filter

Fills with water, drains, will not spin. sometimes will not fill

This is almost certainly the filter to the empty pump blocked. When you power up the machine, the first thing it does is make sure there is no water left over in the tub, if it can't evacuate any water it finds there, it won't go any further. Same on a spin, if after a set time the water hasn't emptied the empty cycle will stop but the spine cycle wont start because there is still water in the drum.

Locate and clean your empty pump filter.

Found lots of fluff from a previous wash. Next wash the machine failed to empty. Did persist & a trickle of water arrived, machine is now almost empty of water, least enough open the door. Possible...

To clean pump you will need to unplug machine, at rear using screwdriver remove the panel at bottom of machine. depending on fitting of clip holding pipe onto your pump, use suitable tool to remove the clip. You can now remove the pipe from the pump. check inside the pump also.If you need to remove the tub end of this pipe there is what is like a ping pong ball within the pipe. Make sure you refit this as it acts as a non return for the water.

Neff dishwasher will not empty

Could be a kinked hose, diverter solenoid is jammed or burnt out. If the dishes are clean and the pump is working...then look at the above. If the spray isn't happening, the pump could be a problem. They are usually direct drive and you'll note that the motor isn't working.
