The pump filter on a front load washer is usually accessable from the front of the machine at floor level. It may be behind a small door/hatch or behind the kick panel. These pump filters need to be checked and cleaned so that the drain flow is not restricted.
It's also possible that there is a small item like a hair clip or a coin stopping the pump impeller.
Lean the machine back against the wall. this will help contain what water is still in the machine. Unscrew the pump filter and check that the impeller is not jammed. Clean the filter and replace.
If the warning light persists, you may have a faulty pump motor, which would require a serviceman.
Good luck....Nomess

Red pressure light is on in my 1994 Caddillac Fleetwood brougham

Check that you have good clean oil in the engine and that it is upto the upper mark on your dipstick.
The oil pump may not be functioning correctly or all may be fine and the oil sender is not funtioning correctly sending a false warning.
Whatever the case, it needs to be chexked immediately

Beeping tank warning light blinking, pump light not on

I think this means your pump is not working, and therefore the tank is full. The pump could just be switched off, could have failed, or could be clogged. See the other messages regarding this model, for an excellent description of how to clean out a clogged pump.

Hyundai matrix 2004. abs light on the dashboard. Diagnosed to be front offside sensor. Sensor cleaned, road tested, apparently ok . Collected the car and within a mile the warning light returned. Is it...

The sensor is magnetic. It can collect fine metal particles, causing it to malfunction. Cleaning it in this case fixes it, but it is important to clean the entire area to prevent reoccurence.

Warning light says "clean pump"

It could be a clog in the hose as well. But if the hose is clear the pump will no doubt need replacement

The warning light fo the oil keeps staying on even after putting oil in it

The warning light is for oil pressure.

First check the dipstick, make sure there's enough oil in the engine.
If so, then there may be a problem with the oil filter, when was it last changed.
It could be the sender, is the connection good and clean.
Finally the oil pump filter may be blocked, or possibly the oil pump has failed.

Drivers door sensor not working. Electric fuel pump is not activated when drivers door is opened. Warning for lights left on when exiting car not operational

It's the switch on the door frame that detects when your door is open. VW's are notorious for this problem. It either needs to be cleaned or replaced. Definitely try cleaning it first. It might be stuck in the "door closed" position.

Doesn't start - FI warning light & no spark

I have encountered this problem on 3 different occasions. I have had to pull the fuel pump, carefully disassemble the entire thing, using an air hose to clean it out, only to reassemble and reinstall it...tho frustrating and very time consuming, the settlement thats in gas can clog the fuel filter inside the pump causing a major inconvenience. Also when you dismantle your bike take an extra hour and some carburator cleaner and clean out your throttle bodies and fuel lines...90% of FI problems are fuel pump related
