how do I clean the drain pump?

Customer:

OK, please unplug the unit for 2 minutes then plug it back and ... Press and hold the start button till the Start light goes out....After this select a wash program, and then press start. If the start light begins flashing again count the flashes between pauses and please tell me number of flashes
