I have a whirlpool wfs1073cd. Problem started with a blocked drain which I cleared ,restarted but the light came back on again .After many more starts and empting I replaced the drain pump .Cut long story...

replace the drum motor brushes perhaps {check there condition is at least 3/4" long}
check the fload protection switch in the machines base is level
if it has one

you can reset it by turing off the mains
press and hold the start stop or some use the on off
and turn the mains on wait a few seconds
and it will reset all cleared faults

I have a whirlpool WFS1073CD and getting a red light indicator saying clean pump. It appears to be washing normally but wont go into the spin cycle. I have drained the water via the filter plug under

Hi Maureen
Wow.... at least this model has an indicator light telling you what the problem is. Many machines don't!
I think the reason it won't go into the spin cycle is that the water can't exit through the pump.
The usual cause is that a sock or something is caught or blocking the pump.
Power OFF of course.
Follow the drain hose back to the pump & try unclipping the hose off either side to feel for a blockage with your finger.
Pump blockage is a common occurrence in washing machines.
Good Luck

How do I clean the pump of My whirlpool wfs1073cd

Above solution is correct, check with your fingers for obstructions on the pipe that branches off to the left of the opening. Objects get caught here.

Hi, I've lost the manual for myWhirpool WFS1073CD washing machine. During a wash it has suddenly stopped and asks me to clean the pump. Can you please tell me where the pump is and how i can get to it....

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
It is possible in the middle of a wash BUT I'm sorry, you need to switch the machine off to do it. You will see why!
Here are my guidance notes for checking both the drain pump filter and the drain pump motor ;-0)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!) and most are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play!

It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. If it doesn't work then the motor is malfunctioning!

Hope the filter is the problem and good luck!

Cannot find the exact machine i have which is WFS1073CD but this one looks similar. Red light is on to say clean pump, where is pump?The book we have is not in english

Your machine should have a lower front panel attached below the door. This would be a full width panel that goes from the floor up to almost the bottom of the door. Unplug the machine. Remove this panel with 3 or 4 screws. The pump is behind this panel, facing forward. The pump has a twist plug clean out. Use a shallow baking pan to catch the small amount of water that will come out of the pump when you open the twist plug. After cleaning the pump, assembly is the reverse of what you just did.

Good luck.
