Question about Whirlpool Washing Machines

1 Answer

THE CAP TO THE FILTER IN THE WHIRLPOOL WFS1071AW FRONT LOAD WASHING MACHINE WONT OPEN.

I am trying to clean the filter becuase it keeps telling me to. But when i start to screw open the lid to the filter (round, black & plastic), it wont come off. We tried to unscrew the screws, but the black fliter thing is too fat to fit through the hole to pull out - we can only push it in. I am not sure how to clean the filter if the lid wont open! (i have followed the instructions on the manual too!). Please help! I dont want to call a technician - they are so expensive!

normally pump filter is the best place to start it could be jamed with a coin or hair clip if you take machine outside and empty it then lay it on its side you can access the pump take it off then stand up the machine and pour hot water into the soap draw check water should run out of bottom freely taking any fluff or bits with it now take apart the pump and clean it all out dry all components before reasembly if the machine still doesent wory could need a new pump

Hi my washing machine starts but afta 5-10 minutes it keeps tellin me to clean pump... how do i do that and where is the pump?


Try cleaning the filter first. The filter is behind a flap on the lower part of the front panel of the machine. The flap is normally opened by pushing at one side - then unscrew the cap that is behind the flap and withdraw the filter. Clean it thoroughly and replace.
If this does not work you will need to remove and clean the pump itself, which is accessed from beneath the machine, but this is a more major job.

Whirlpool washing machine wont stop all lights


Check your washer plug to see if the connections are tightly screwed. Next check your filter if you haven't for long.

Remove the 3 screws at the bottom of the front panel under the washer door. Your filter door will be light brown. If you find a hose there it is to drain out excess water (water that could not be drained by your pump) After you hv drained unscrew the cap and remove all the junk inside. Have a large plastic bag to catch junk and water. Refit carefully after cleaning out. If not solved, something shd be blocking your pump, check this out.

While the machine is on press "end of cycle" for 3 seconds, then wait for 2 minutes to try the door. Try this again if it does not open, this is the child lock program - to lock and unlock; it is the same procedure.

Cleaning depends on use. 8 years is a bit over the top! When your water does not drain, check the outlet filter first, then the pipe from below the tub to the filter. Your washer wont spin 'cause the pump/filter is blocked.
