This is normally due to a restriction in the pump chamber, causing the float to rise and activate the light.

If the appliance is out of warranty and if you are looking to try and repair it yourself, the following will help.

Unplug the appliance.

At the bottom rear is a bulged container.
Unclip it form the rear panel and take the top off.

Take the pump out and clean out any fluff/debris in there.
Clean the pump out too.

Take the condenser out and clean out all the fluff in the condenser chamber, reach in and around at the rear to get as much as you can out.
Thoroughly clean the condenser.

Reassemble and try it again.

If the pump is ok, the problem should now be resolved.

Keep the condenser and chamber clean so fluff doesn't get into the pump.

Try it out, see how it goes and get back to me if you need more help.

Hope this helps
