Thanks for your question. Please remember to rate my assistance when we're done. Please talk with me first before rating negatively.

It was common for the pump to go bad or get clogged. You will have to open the small door on the bottom right of the machine. Remove the filter and drain the unit. Check and see if anything is clogged in the unit. Then restart the machine and the door should open, if it does and everything was clear your pump impeller is likely broken and you would have to replace the pump assembly. That is a very common issue.

Thanks we have drained the washing machine of water but cannot remove the round plug next to long black cord.
The plug by the filter?

That is the filter cap you may need a pliers to turn it counterclockwise.
