Question about Washing Machines
On the lower front panel is a small door which may be behind the kick panel. Behind this door is the drain filter.. Do not undo this filter till you have emptied the machine, as any water in the machine will flow from the pump, when opened.. Leaning the machine back against the wall will help contain what water is left in the machine..
Undo filter, check and clean.
Check that a coin or hairclip has not fouled pump impellers.
If the impeller has come away from the pump shaft, the pump motor needs to be replaced.. A tech should be called for this job!

Sounds like a hair clip stuck in there, brute force required to remove filter using grips and screwdriver
