Kick panel removed, pump in question can be seen right hand side. Is this fastened down or just located by the pipework? I assume I need to remove the pump.
Machine repaired and up and running, here's some info to help you if you are asked again. To remove pump, undo the pipe-work and pull the pump out, it has a spigot on the back that locates in a grommet. The original pump fitted is an Askol marked M95 art 295106 Cod 461972474391 This is a strange design without a run capacitor and has a magnet in the impeller shaft, they are known for being unreliable. I bought and fitted a new pump conventional design (with capacitor) cost was £66-00. Hope you find this info of use. Paul
