Whirpool awo/d 4505 washing machine making grinding noise

I have a whirpool awo/d 4505 washing machine. It stopped working just after we moved house in feb. The pump was just making a chugging noise and it wasnt doing much else so we cleaned pumped out and rinsed it through like it said in instructions. Now it has started to make a scrapy, grindy metallic noise when it turns like when a metal zip is being dragged around it. The noise is on and off when it turns and the machine has got louder when it spins. I have cleaned the pump again today (just let it drain and checked there was nothing blocking it) but it is still making the same noise. There are no warning lights on the front of the machine. Is there a problem with it? I know its not broken down yet but we really cant afford a new washer (or to flood the flat downstairs!) and hope if it is broken we can get it sorted before this happens.

Unplug your machine and unclip the plastic trim panel across the bottom of the machine (front) to reveal the circular pump filter cover. Unscrew this cover with your fingers and remove any debris inside. Put the cover back on, clip the panel back on and try your machine again. Should be fine.

SOURCE: series 70 fills wit water stops then makes a slight buzzing sound

The electric motor my have failed or a part called a capacitor could be the problem? The capacitor is part of the starting circuit of the electric motor, if this fails the motor will not start therefore the washing machine won't spin or agitate.

SOURCE: Whirlpool washing machine "clean pump" error light.

take top off machine. look down right side and you will see a disc about 50 mm in diameter, attached to this is a small flexible rubber pipe, take this off at the disc and blow through it,( you will need some type of pipe to connect to the rubber pipe).this worked for me with the very same problem.
