Has stopped pumping out, emits a loud electrical noise on any function or cycle.
I have pulled out from unit and tipped forward as i know this can reset, this did not work.
All drains are clear.
Any combination of cycle buttons re-set?

Sorry, I just saw I said ;
"It's not the pump,"
it may be the pump £ how much to replace the pump ?
Expert:  bonzaco replied 11 months ago.

The base of this appliance comes off which will allow you access to the drain pump, as its going to cost you about £50 for the pump and likely £50+ for the labour it might be worth having a quick look?
