I've just fixed my FDW60 which had the same symptoms. It was a bit of debris caught in the impeller of the drain pump - actually seems to be a bit of broken plastic bottle cap.
(With the power off, get us much water out as you can, lay the machine on its back and access the pump by removing the six screws holding the metal cover on. Surprisingly easy to remove the pump and check it.)
