Once the drain pump is removed, you will need to clean the filter screen and replace it if necessary. After replacing the drain pump, turn the machine back on and test it again.

Corrupted Water Level Switch
A water level switch is a mechanical device used to detect the presence of water in a tank. It consists of two parts: a float and a lever. The float is attached to the lever and moves up and down depending on how much water is present in the tank. When the water reaches a certain height, the float touches the lever and closes a circuit. This action triggers the motor that turns on the washing machine. A water level switch is a mechanism that detects the presence of water in the tank.
