Question about Whirlpool AWM6100 Front Load Washer
Yeah. This is a pump problem. Our machine first did this about 3 months ago. I took the filter plug out and removed about 10 coins from around the pump impeller area! I removed the pump and dismantled it. Unfortunately water was getting in past the seal on the pump spindle. I cleaned it all out and reassembled it. Worked fine till a couple of weeks ago. It has worn out the spindle "bearings" and because of the loose play it gets stuck, intermittently. If you are by the machine when the drain cycle starts , you can give the filter housing a few bangs(take off the circular cover) . The pump will start up .It makes a grumbly sound, as it is knackered. But once started will generally keep going.The answer however is a new pump. And probably a pact with everyone in your household to be more careful not to leave stuff in the clothes you put in the machine. Our washer has got through 2 mobile phones. a packet of bradding nails, a lot of cash, both coins and notes.Various other stuff that i wont mention! The pump gets very hot when it is trying to turn but cant because of debris on the impeller. This will lead to the pump failing after a time.

Same problem, flashing 0,100.
disconnected the machine from the mains, water and waste.
raised the machine on blocks.
disconnected all of the rubber sump and drain hoses.
Cleaned out all the built up fluff and rubbish from the hoses.
Sweet as a nut!

As originator of this problem, (Creina) my husband finally fixed problem by replacing pump motor. It now works perfectly every time.
The issue was the pump intermittently would not start mid cycle (always pumped at start but would not restart later -sometimes worked, sometimes didn't). Obtained a general purpose motor of similar design for 60% of genuine spare part. Starts 100% of time.

Could mean the washer is having trouble draining. Might be something stuck in the pipe to the filter/drain pump. Or something stuck in the filter or the pump. Or something blocking the drain pipe.

Mine was doing the same specially with towels over loaded too heavy. I took the little plug out of the bottom which seemed to release a pocket of air and now works.
