Heavy load in washer stopped machine. We cleaned out inside

Customer Question

Heavy load in washer stopped machine. We cleaned out inside of machine, and tried a small load. It stopped on the drain cycle with a magic code for minutes left in cycle saying 5d. Not able to turn off machine. Both Power and Pause/Cancel button unresponsive.

What is the make and model number?
Customer: replied 5 years ago.
It is a front loading duet sport electric washer purchased 2006.
I don't know make and model numbers.

I had a bath rug in the machine and the backing almost all came off. We think the drainage pipe is clogged. Will I need a repair man?
Expert:  Appliance Medic replied 5 years ago.
if you are handy you can make this repair. The drain filter is clogged. Tip the washer back and remove the lower front panel three screws and it slides down and off. Twist the filter head and slide the filter out. Clean the filter and that will solve the issue for sure.
