Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I Started on a 50 minute cycle. At 33 minutes it went to Sud continue to work like it was running the cycle. At 31 minutes it said f and then flashed 2 continue to do that. so I put it On rinse and spin which is a 20 minute cycle the machine was on 20 continued to flash . I tried to power off the machine by pushing the power off button but it would not stop flashing so I had to unplug it. I plugged it back in and it continued to flash 20 and would not stop

Is it still flashing 20 if you plug it in?

I just plugged it in and it was flashing 20 and then it just shut off. Very quickly within 15 seconds

Press PAUSE/CANCEL twice to clear the display.
Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump is running. Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
If the above does not correct the problem, replace the pump.

I need the model number. Look inside the door for a label with the model number. What you have given me is a part number.

Yes but I don't now how to open it I forgot how . About 5 years ago I had a guy on the phone talk me through it because it was clogged once before but I just don't remember how it was a long time ago

Here is the service manual. Go to page 4-6 to get to the pump with the screw out filter.
