1) disconnect power and place towels etc underneath everything
2) break discharge pipe(should be a union fitting for servicing)
3) undo big brass nut under sink basket
4) undo 4 hex head bolts holding pump housing together(sometime can be picked out via inlet and discharge
5) Dont try and take impeller off as the ceramic washer may come off and then you got to get a new one. If motorshaft is rusty, time for a new motor, seal and probably an impeller seal. ceramic impeller seal is epoxied on the impeller

F21 code still flashes after i've unclogged line - reset?

if you cleaned out the pump by removing the center part of it and it still shows f21,either you didn't clear everything out of the pump,after you pull out the center piece stick your finger inside where the impellar is to see if you feel anything rapped around it,if it's clear and still won't drain then you need to buy a new pump and remove the old pump and install the new pump part number 280187 and it's around 120 dollars

Pump is clogged, how do I unclog it?

remove hose going from tub to pump. Do this at the pump not the tub. Should be able to remove debris now. But really depends on your brand of washer. You may have a clean out on yours too.

I have a front loader. Have had it for 3 years always worked just fine never a problem. It stopped when I was washing a front door mat and has yet to work since. It won't let any water in to fill and...

If the problem is just the pump being clogged,,, its very simple. Remove the back panel, or the front bottom panel (if your model has one) and locate the pump. Make sure ALL power is disconnected, and all electrical parts are covered because once you disconnect the tubing from the drum, and pump, all the water will be let out. If there is nothing clogging the tubing, you'll have to remove the drain pump and take a look inside.
