    I found out. First of all A penny was able to find its way through the filter and into the pump system. I am not amused.


    I tipped th unit onto one side.


    Took. off the bottom unit drawer


    From beneatht eh unit, there is access to the pump.


    I undid all clamps ( I think there are 3 clamps) to each hose connecting to the pumps.


    Unscrewed the screws to the outside face place of the filter (on the face of the machine)


    Undid the wires attached to the pump system and took it out.


    Unscrewed each pump from the entire unit that cam out (there are 2 pumps).


    Inside one, there was a penny.


    saved myself $400 service call :)


    LG, you suck!

Can I get to the drain pump or does the washer need to be torn apart? I cleaned out the drain plug- full of sand, filter clean, but I can't see the actual drain pump to see if something might be


You can get to the drain filter without need for disassembling.The filter access is located behind the protective trim at the lower front side of the machine. Remove the trim and rotate the filter cap anticlockwise. Be prepared to collect the water that will flow through the filter. After cleaning the filter perform operations in reverse order to reassemble. Disconnect power before starting.
The pump is located at the bottom of the machine, behind the filter. Accessing the pump requires disassembling.

Clear filter

If this is a Kenmore Elite or Whirlpool Duet series FRONT LOADER, the filter you are referring to is the drain trap. The followiong link explains how to access and clean the drain pump reservoir:

If you check the drain pump reservoir and the problem still persists, you may have a pump with a damaged motor/impeller, or something lodged in one of the drain lines. In particular, the drain line that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the pump.

I recommend you remove the inlet hose, as well, and inspect for clogs. In is common for small garments to become lodged in this area and restrict water flow to the drain pump. Check the output drain line for obstructions as well.

It does not take much to damage these small drain pumps. If an error is present, it is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes. So...if the impeller or motor become damaged, and the pump does not pull water at the correct volume, you may still experience the drain error. In this case, you will have to replace the pump in order to get the error to clear. The following link explains how:

Replacements can be purchased at any of the following websites:

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. the first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.

If you have any questions, please post back with your complete MODEL NUMBER (located around the door opening) and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Water leaking from bottom, lots of suds.


Thanks for using FixYa. This may happen due one or more than one of these issues with your washer--
Probably there is something(coins, socks, dirt, debris, etc) stuck inside the drain filter of your washer. You'll need to check the drain filter. To access the drain filter. To check the drain pump follow these steps:

Unplug the washer to completely disconnect electrical power.Remove the bottom front service panel as shown in the first image below.

Also check your drain hose for a kink or clog. Check the washer house drain for a clog or restriction. Test the washer to see if it will drain properly.

This issue can also be due to clogged drain pump or drain filter, due to which the hose have developed leak. This will cause suds

Please rate the solution if you find it useful and helpful.

Asko D3120 I have resolved the problem of pum always running by tilting the dishwasher but now I have a new problem of the pump not draining the water in the bottom of the dishwasher. I thought it was...

In the bottom where the filter are, you can see a yellow 'thing'. Remove this and stick one finger in an try to rotate the pump wing. Try to remove particals that is blocking the pump.
Or there is something in the drain hose. Try to drain the machine by holding the drain hose over bucket. If it drain here, then the problem is under the sink.
