FP code appearing on lcd disply

I have a Whirlpool aa class 6th sense front loadind washing machine,
i keep getting a fp code appearing on the lcd display at the rinse or rinse spin stage of the cycle, we have to stop the programme and move it on to the next stage of the cycle to let the programme finish.

Could you please tell me what the 'FP' code means and is there anything i can do to rectify this.

Whirlpool 6th Sense displaying FP and clean pump is lit ! How do you clean pump ?


On the lower front panel is a small door which may be behind the kick panel. Behind this door is the drain filter.. Do not undo this filter till you have emptied the machine, as any water in the machine will flow from the pump, when opened.. Leaning the machine back against the wall will help contain what water is left in the machine..
Undo filter, check and clean.
Check that a coin or hairclip has not fouled pump impellers.
If the impeller has come away from the pump shaft, the pump motor needs to be replaced.. A tech should be called for this job!
Good luck....Nomess

When machine get to rinse cycle it stops and the letters FP appear.


FP means "faulty pump" but before buying a pump make sure to check your drain hoses first since any blockage may cause the same readout in display:
Opene the flap on the front lower right side and unscrew the cap. If it doesn't come out easily a bit of force will get it out - look for hair klips and fluff blocking the pump inlet/outlet hoses.
GOOD LUCK!

My washer gets so far then says fp


fp indicates a pump failiure so either clean the pump filter, or if the pump filter is clear then you will need to replace the pump as this is indication of a knackerd pump

Whirlpool 6th sense awm8163 programes never stops now cannot get it to work at all


The pump is at the lower left of the front of the machine covered by a white plate. Use a bowl to catch any remaining water when opening the screw thread inside and then clean and replace. If it is truely beyond repair then a new filter pump can be bought from ebay for £3 or thereabouts.

I have just drained mine manually in this way and am going to run it empty with soda crystals to glean a few more days use whilst the new pump arrives.

Good luck :)
