Question about Washing Machines
How do we get the front access panel off of this machine to check the pump for items clogging it? Our pump is not pumping out water, but sounds like it is trying to. We need to check the pump, but can't seem to get the front panel to come off.
Since you failed to tell us the brand and model of your washer, it's pretty hard to help. If it's a top-loader, the back panel is the access point and the front and sides are normally assembled as a unit and dropped over the innards. It shouldn't be necessary to remove the front at all.

waht u need to do is get a bucket now take the outlet hose and place it into it low to the ground if water comes out then it will be that your pump is faulty and needs replacing but if it doesnt the only way to do it is towels on the floor and with a low pan place this under the sump hose which should be in the middle of your drum which then leads to the pump pull slowly but not enough for the water to push the hose of do this until empty the only other way is to take it outside and pull the outlet hose of this is the quicker and dryiest out of them all but do do the first part to c if the pump is faulty m8

This issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged
drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and
remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower
front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs,
you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Hope this
helps... Please post back for any further assistance.
