If it is leaking from the waste pump area it may be blocked by a small piece of clothing like a sock or something similar! This will also cause it to take too long to complete a cycle. Remove the rubber hose onto the waste pump and check inside the hose and the pump, make sure the pump spins freely and that nothing is stuck in the hose pipes leading to the pump

I would recommend getting the service manual for your model as some models have clutches that control spin and others have belts. The service manual would be the best route if you are planning on repairing this yourself. If you would like the service manual let me know and I will post a link to where you can get one emailed to you.

SOURCE: FRONT LOADER DOOR LOCK WONT OPEN OR JAMMED

On a Bosch wfmc3200uc there is a green plastic string, similar to fishing line, located behind the round panel on the front of the machine. It is attached to the top right of the round black piece. Just give a slight tug this will release the lock.

SOURCE: Whirlpool clean pump problem

This is from the Whirlpool user manual for the AWO\R 4205 - it tried it and it worked well, found a hair grip and some stones in mine!

We recommend that you check and clean the filter
regularly, at least two or three times a year.
Especially:
.
If the appliance is not draining properly or if it fails to
perform spin cycles.
. If the pump is blocked by a foreign body (e.g. buttons,
coins or safety pins).
IMPORTANT: make sure the water has cooled
before draining the appliance.
1.
Stop the appliance and unplug it.
2. Remove the plinth by using the separator of the
detergent dispenser (fig. .A.).
3. Place a container beneath it.
4. Open the filter but do not remove it completely.
Slowly turn the filter counterclockwise (fig. .B.) until
the water begins to drain out.
5. Wait until all the water has drained.
6. Now unscrew the filter completely and remove it.
7. Clean the filter and the filter chamber.
8. Check that the pump rotor moves freely.
9. Re-insert the filter and screw it in clockwise as far as it
will go.
10. Pour about 1 litre of water into the detergent drawer
to reactivate the .Eco system.. Check that the filter is
inserted properly and securely.
11. Reinstall the plinth.
12. Plug in the appliance again.
13. Select a programme and start it.

How do I clean the pump on a front loader Whirlpool washing machine, when the filter is spotless. (Red Pump clean light is on) Machine doesn't drain properly leaving clothes soaked.


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.

Tip

ACCESSING THE DRAIN PUMP ON A FRONT LOADER


Today I will be showing you how to drain & clean your Drain Filter on a Front Loading Washing Machine.

Be sure to unplug your machine, before doing anything beyond this point.

THE DRAIN FILTER COMPARTMENT

Most washing machines have a already accessible compartment for your convenience at the front of the machine.

Common compartments can be found here:
jedemeyer1_19.jpgjedemeyer1_18.jpg
jedemeyer1_21.jpgjedemeyer1_20.jpg
jedemeyer1_22.jpg

Compartments can be opened by any small flat object, insert it at the top and flip it out downwards.

DRAINING THE WATER

Ready a small bowl, and position under the drain filter compartment. Position towels by the compartment

You now need to drain the water, there should be a small pipe with either a plastic cork / small tap which you can open. Let it drain all the water to the bowl:jedemeyer1_16.jpg

Not all Washing Machines have this pipe fitted, if that is your case, get some more towels, and a low dish for the next step.

CLEANING THE FILTER

Now the filter is the round compartment you can see, it is taken out by turning it anti-clockwise. Once loose, more water will be streaming out (a small amount, if drained adequately in the last step).
jedemeyer1_17.jpg
Once this filter is out, you can clean the filter cap, which should be out of the machine (In your hand, sir) - Wash it of under a running tap.

Insert your fingers into the Pump Compartment, and remove any gunk (coins, toothpicks, small stones etc), if you push your fingers in deep enough you will feel the drain pump's impeller, make sure this can be moved with no obstruction, by turning it with your fingertips.

Re-insert the filter, close the compartment and plug in your machine again.
It is recommended to clean your filter at least once a week, to avoid build-up that could harm your drain pump.

I hope you have been helped with this Tip.

Hi. I have a Whirlpool Gold Ultimate Care II Quiet Wash plus top loader washing machine. Today as the water went in to rinse the wash it flooded out across the floor from underneath. Is there a filter I...


No problem with Filter.
Pressure switch is not working, it is not sensing the water level. There could be one more reason can cause this issue. Please check the Pressure HOSE whether is punchered or not.

I bought the Whirlpool Duet to replace my old standard washer & dryer and I find that the wash time is longer than the old washer. Even the quick wash takes about 1 hour. Am I doing something wrong...


I assume from your comment that your old washer was a top loader. Yes, front loading machines typically have longer cycle times than top loaders. There are several contibuting factors... first of all, the wash action of a front load is to oscillate the drum back and forth as well as provide a slow tumbling motion whereas a top loader w/ agitator or impeller has a more aggressive action. The more aggressive action rolls and tumbles your clothes more often and therefore cleans faster. Also, because front loaders spin very fast (up to twice as fast as top loaders) to reduce the amount of moisture left in the clothes, they need to have balanced loads. They accomplish this by testing and rebalancing your load several times during each cycle before beginning to spin.

That was a long answer to your question- no, you are not doing anything wrong.

Good luck.

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.

I have a front loader whirlpool duet #ghw9100lw2


The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a good plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully. Check your pump too, comes after the filter.

Drain off excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big plastic bag to collect water or a wet vac. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in.
