Looking at the age of this unit it is more likely a problem with motor carbon brushes

Yes you have to pull it out and with the washer unplugged remove the back then gain access to the pump assembly, clean the waste pipe after removing the clips

after it is cleaned completely check the cycle...it should work if the problem starts again then you will have to change the brushes

thankyou for your help regarding bosch washing machine cleaned the pump which was blocked with limescale and 11p.

Tried again but wont spin or drain so have decided on a new washing machine which will arrive tomorrow.

To remove the pump we had to put the machine on its side to gain access as it was impossible by removeing the back as it only exposed the drum it was very difficult to do but thanks again for your help.

Okay however, replacing the carbon brushes might have solved the problem...Thank you for getting back.
