My machine is about 8 years old and it's a WFS1273BW I did one wash and was fine then did second lot and this clean pump light comes idea what to do as there is 10 min left and it's soaking wet.

Clean pump means there is a clog. It is unable to drain. You will need to locate the pump, take off the drain hose and clean out any debris. Water will come out, so use a pan under the pump. Good luck!

Possible thaat the drain pump is clogged and must be cleaned out as the filter is choked.
so remove the drain and have it cleaned and reset , also check you inlets and drain hose.

''clean filter'' light coming on, won't drain or spin

If it does not spin now that you have drained the water out, then there is another problem.
Could be a motor problem, control board problem, or any one of a number of things.
Make sure the filter is clean, and that there is nothing stuck in the pump.
Please rate my solution.
