If there is a filter on the front (behind the kick plate), remove it to clean it out. (lot of towels required as there will be a lot of water to come out if the drum is full).
If no filter then there's likely to be something jamming the pump and that would have to be stripped out to clear it.

Note 1: Biggest culprit ... hair clips, cocktail sticks and coins.

Note 2:You might want to put some newspaper / rags on the floor as this will be messy.

1. To remove kick panel - tip machine back so you can see underneath and use a flat head screwdriver to praise off the panel

2. Use a pliers to unscrew filter cap (anti clockwise).... With the cap off you will see the insert that is designed to catch and hold debris.

3. Squeeze the Insert arms together and remove to wash and clean.

4. Clean our the filter chamber before first replacing the insert and then the cap.

5. As this will probably be the first time you have cleaned the filter .... put a wash through and repeat the filter cleaning process.


Note: you should probably clean the filter a couple of time a year ...

Not sure if this is the right way to reply here but thankyou for your post, I got my machine working again and found that if I used a container and gently released the filter I could contain a lot of water but still needed loads of towels. I still have a problem though. When machine starts to drain/spin there is the most awful noise that would seem to be coming from the pipe attached to the filter. I know to unscrew the four screws on the filter but not sure what to do next?
Hope you can help once again
Thanks

Spin the drum by hand, could be something between drum and housing, do you hear or feel anything.

Do you mean drain pump when you say remove 4 screws?

Best bet is to remove drain pump and drum sump, clean and re-fit. Also checking the connecting pipes are clear from obstruction.
