Hi, thank you. I can’t turn the pump handle to open it?
Expert:  Erdal Zal replied 9 days ago.

If you cannot open it, it is 100% blocked by a foreign object. Please try to open and close it several times until it comes loose. If it does not come loose at all, the complete drain pump must be dismantled beforehand so that the foreign body can be removed. Removing the drain pump is of course very complicated. You have to open the appliance completely or remove all the covers.
