Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
(If you haven't done already, may I suggest you follow these tips on filters and pumps? Also I doubt a diagram 1] is available - manufacturers provide them to their engineers only- or 2] would be of use. Pumps are just 'fans' with blades called impellers. Sorry if this 'solution' does not help you)

Here are my complete, general pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the filter and the motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter 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.


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!

Fuel pump dont get power

You should have four terminals on the relay. One is power for the pump, one goes to the pump, the third terminal is power for the magnet in the relay, and the fourth is ground from the computer.
You would need to figure out if you have power on two of the terminals, and if the fourth is giving a ground connection from the computer. You may need a wiring diagram to know which wires.
