Indesit machine won’t drain - tried all I can

I have an Indesit machine which stopped draining. I did some YouTubing and tried all the basic self fixes, I checked all the pipes for blockages and then checked the pump filter, which did have a few hair clips in it. Thinking issue sorted I tried again and still not draining. I’ve now tested the pump itself with a multimeter and it’s giving a resistance reading of 190. So seems to be fine.

Out if ideas and would prefer to refrain from phoning a repair guy especially if it’s something I can fix myself.

Thanks in advance

Hi Jack. I have several very comprehensive articles on Whitegoodshelp describing every possible cause of a washer not draining the water - even very unlikely ones. It would be a question of going through them all carefully, and looking at all the other related articles linked to from the first one to look at all possibilities washing machine not draining the water out
