SOURCE: pump pre chamber lid wont open
I have a PWE8168 and assuming yours has a similar arrangement:
1) Switch off water and electricity feeds;
2) Pull the washing machine forward a sufficient distance to allow you to tip it back so that you can gain access to the area next to the pre chamber lid. I found my tool box was handly at propping up the front!
3) A torch is handy at this point. Lie on the floor, and use a pair of mole grip pliers to release the springs securing the pipe attached to the left of the pre chamber filter (looking from the front of the machine).
4) Note that if you have not been able to drain your machine already your should have some towels/cloths and (eg) a tuppaware container ready to collect all the water.
5) Slide the pipe off and you should be able to get your fingers into the pump pre chamber and fish out whatever is jamming both the pump and the lid. I got a 5p piece for my troubles!
I would not say that this is a particularly difficult procedure and apart from water collecting, should only take 20 minutes, including reconnecting the pipe.

Check the paw. It is a plastic somewhat u shaped piece that sits on the bottom of the machine and is connected by a plastic lever and a solenoid. It usually breaks on the end and as such won't lock the gearbox in. If you keep running it like that there is every chance you will probably burn the motor out.
