SOURCE: how do you clean pump

Hi

On the bottom right corner of the machine you will have a drain filter.

Flip open the door. It opens vertically from top down.

Please note if your pump is blocked there will be water in the machine which has not drained out. When you twist open the filter anti-clock wise, all the water will gush out. Be prepared for this with towls and mopps. Also open the filter dial, slightly at first and only allow the water to trickle out at first. Once the water is all out, open and pull out the filter. Clean out the flilter and the cavity. Look into the cavity with a torch and make sure everything is clear.
Put back the filter.
Start your machine on the "Drain" cycle only. Check to see if you can hear the water pump working. If there is no noise, then the pump needs further investigation. It may even be faulty.

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!
Good luck....Nomess

SOURCE: clean pump light keeps coming

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.
