ive,tried it on a fast spin now and it has pumped out

Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 2 years ago.
Hi, OK so it works fine now or just works on fast spin ? If it works only on fast spin then check the drain pump again and let me know if you hear a hum like sound...Thanks
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

not working now f05 is up again,and flashing, no hum sound. tried it on pump out and its humming now

Expert:  KevinWhiteJA replied 2 years ago.
OK, if the filter is already cleaned and the impeller at the back isn't jammed then it is time to buy a new drain pump.
