Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Sorry but I do not know your particular machine BUT I would suggest as a first step that you clean the drain motor lint tray/filter which comes before the pump.

Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking filters and pumps/motors ;-0)
-------------------------------------
If you are unsure where the filter/pump is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob.

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Clean the pump


If there is a kick plate on the bottom front you take screws off and you can get right to the pump, un hook hose and clen out. Now if there isn't a kick plate then you have to go through the back and then do the same.. Remember to unplug unit before entry.

Clean pump light is flashing where is the pump so i can clean it


The pump is located in that bottom compartment under the door. There are two screws that you need to take out located in that tiny little opening and the panel will come right off. The pump is right there in front. Let me know if you have any other questions and let me know if this was helpful for you. Good luck and I am glad I could help.

Unplug your machine and unclip the plastic trim panel across the bottom of the machine (front) to reveal the circular pump filter cover. Unscrew this cover with your fingers and remove any debris inside. Put the cover back on, clip the panel back on and try your machine again. Should be fine.
