I think the drain on my Fisher Paykel ecosmart is clogged somewhere

This answer was rated:

I think the drain on my Fisher Paykel ecosmart is clogged somewhere inside. It's full of water and wet clothes and won't advance through the final rinse and spin phases. Can someone help me with getting this thing unclogged?
Fist thing you need to do is remove the the water. Then pull the unit away from the wall about 2 feet. Then tip the washer back against the wall. Now you can remove the drain pump. The drain pump is mounted on the right bottom of the tub. you just pull the tab out and untwist the pump.

Thanks. You mean I need to replace this pump? Or just clean it out then replace? If I need to replace, is this an easy thing to find on, say, ebay?
Yes you can buy one on ebay. Most likely you just need to clean it.
