Question about Whirlpool LHW0050PQ Front Load Washer
I have a whirlpool LHW0050PQ. The washer will go through its wash cycle fine, but when it is time to drain, it stops and the blinking light "Done" comes on. I have opened up the washer, checked all hoses, pumps and everything is clean: no clogs. When I put it on the spin cycle, it spins with water but will not drain at all. When it is time to pump the water out, I do not hear a pumping noise or anything.
I am not sure if the pump needs to be replaced as I checked it, and it looked super clean and fine to me.
On our LHW0050PQ the "Done" light stays on solid-- it does not blink, so on yours it may be indicating a malfunction, either in the electronic control or a problem with the pump. As VersaStyle suggested, you can check the connection to the pump, check for power to that connection and also look for evidence the impeller might have a pin or something stuck in it. If it used to work and it made a lot of noise before failing, I would suspect an object lodged in the impeller or a seized bearing.
(I find that when I use non-HE detergent, the pump gets really noisy, making sounds like the bearing is going out. I have a solution for that, but your situation sounds like a complete failure somewhere.)
