I hope this answers your question and you click the accept button for me, as this is how I get paid for helping you.
I have the pump out, it isn't blocked & the blades turn ok but with resistance which I presume is normal for an electric motor.
How do I check the continuity of the windings? I do have a multi-meter.
I don't like messing with 240volts, so I'll take it to a service centre and get them to test it out of the machine.
