Hello Gordon, my name is George..

Please turn off the power to the pump and remove the plinth/kick panel at the base of the front.. You will see the access to the filter housing there. You can access the interior of the pump housing there to look for items preventing the impellor of the pump reotating, or blockages within the pump.

Before you do this, it is advisable to use the drain hose at the rear to try drain off any water within the appliance into a bucket.

Kindly be patient whilst awaiting any responses from me as I'm not constantly available.
