You will need to unplug the machine,

Remove the front panel and look for the pump,

Your pump may or maynot have a button trap. Be prepared for water have towels available to soak it up. Try bailing the machine out before you remove the button trap on the pump.

Unscew the button trap and remove all the debris.

if you machine doesnt have a button trap, remove the hose going to the pump and look for bobby pin, nails, screws, etc.

The worse case is you burnt out the pump and will need to replace it.

Ge side by side refrigerator

I oftenlly have to clear drains so it depends on the circumstances. If the hoemowner has laminate tiles or nice hardwood floors i try to advoid hot water. It will make the floor come up. Hot water into a frozen drain does the trick nicely though. That side by side you have should be easy to get to after you remove all the bottom foods. You probably dont even have to take out the back panel to get to the drain. With less mess use a hair dryer. If it is not frozen but has foods debris try top blow the drain with compressed air. if you dont have that use a 3/16 clear hose and stick it in the drain and blow. when the water goes down (pour a cup) then it is clear. get a mop and rags ready for overspill. hope this is helpful
