yes this is normally caused by the drain filter. im guessing this is a front loader. please include the entire model number when asking questions so we can assist you better.
to access the filter tilt the washer back slightly (don't have to but makes this easier) and remove the three screws along the bottom panel. the pump will be right in the front and you will see a round cap on the pump facing right at you. turn it counter clockwise and remove. clean the filter and also be sure the incoming hose and pump itself is clean. this will solve your problem.
