Hi
This isn't a bad job to do. You will just need a few towels, a shallow tray and a bowl.
Then you need to use a butter knife and prise off the plastic trim on the front at the bottom.
From there you will see the filter on the right hand side.
Place the towels on the floor under there.
Place a shallow tray under there and slacken the filter and slowerly drain the water from there. Just tighten the filter when the tray is full and empty that into the bowl.
Once all the water is out you can then fully remove the filter and give it a good clean out.
Then look inside the chamber were the filter goes and at the back in there you will see the pump impeller X shape, Check theres nothing stuck in there jamming the impeller up.
Once all that's clear then refit the filter and retry it on a rinse and spin and fingers crossed that's sorted it from there.
Most of the time its a blockage in there that causes it. But if that's not the case then its more then likely the pump which will need to be replaced.
But try the above and see how it goes and if you get stuck just get back to me.
