    Found the solution. Seems it is a common problem. Just clean the flexible grey drain pipe, in my case where it connects to the main drain pipe. This was dirty and blocked, yet the filter who was suppose to catch everything going down the small pipe was clean. Problem was sorted after pipe connection was cleaned.

If you have a top front small panel, unscrew 3 or 4 screw then you can pop out the cover. The pump is right there, you can counter clockwise the filter out and clean the pump. Be aware to do it with the power off.
If you don't see the front small panel, you have to open the back cover at the back of the unit.

Front loader has stopped mid wash and red light has come on saying clean my pump. How do I do this?


Not knowing which model you have makes it a bit difficult. Most front loaders have a little trap door down on the front panel somewhere. Behind this door is access to the pump filter. Usually, it just unscrews, and you pull it out. If your machine is full of water, expect a mess. remove any buildup of fluff, foreign objects etc. If your machine has no trap or access. Unplug the machine and drag it away from the wall. Lean the machine back against the wall to gain access underneath. You should be able to see a large hose from the tub to the front ( or side) of the pump. They are usually held on by a spring clip. Slide the clip back or unscrew the clip to enable you to pull the hose off the pump. Clean out any foreign objects you find. As before, if the machine is full of water, expect a mess. Front loader drain hoses usually exit out the top of the machine so lying the end of the drain hose on the ground wont drain the water.

CLEAN PUMP LIGHT COMES ON WHERE IS THE PUMP LOCATED


The pump is located behind front bottom panel on the right side assuming that your machine is a Whirlpool or Kenmore Front-Loader. Disconnect power and remove the three screws attaching the lower front access panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and off the cabinet. You can prop up the bottom front edge of the washer or cushion and lean it against the wall to access and remove the screws more easily.

Once the panel is off, remove the filter by turning the knob counterclockwise. Clean the filter from any debris that prevents water from draining out properly. Click on the link below for further troubleshooting should the cleaning of the filter does not resolve the problem.

Gray front loader washing machine


Check the drain pump filter for a foreign object and check your hoses for clogging or obstructions.

If there is nothing wrong with either of those, you will need to replace the drain pump.

Front loader washing machine is not draining


Based upon your description, the drain pump has either failed or become clogged.
To check the pump, remove the bottom access panel. There you will find access to the pump clean-out.(Large,white screw cap) Be prepared to catch lots of water. CAREFULLY AND S_L_O_W_L_Y unscrew the pump clean-out, catching and discarding the water. When the water flow finally stops, completely remove the clean-out filter. Inspect the clean-out filter, the drain hose from the tub as well as inside the pump impeller for any additional debris.

If you need further assistance, let me know

Whirlpool front loader washing machine (AWO3361) WONT DRAIN


Remove drain hose from where it connects to the plumbing under the sink/tub. Inspect the spigot. If clogged, clean. If clean, then tilt machine back and remove drum to pump hose from pump. Check hose and also drain pump. Clear any obstructions.
