Question about Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer

How do I access the pump filter?

I have an FL model Whirlpool washing maching that is not draining. I read that the pump filter may need to be cleaned. I located the access door on the bottom left. Inside is a black lid that I assumed I would need to turn counter clockwise but it does not budge in either direction. Any tricks to open this?

No specific tricks. Try gripping the knob with an adjustable wrench for more leverage.

Where is my pump filter whirlpool duet front load washer


When your Whirlpool washing machine won't drain, there's a possibility that the drain filter is clogged. The drain filter is designed to catch lint, change, credit cards and all the other things that find their way into the washer. Whirlpool washer models that have a drain pump filter are easy to disassemble so that you can access and check it. Before you go to the minimal amount of trouble it takes to check the filter, however, take a look at the drain hose behind the washer to ensure it isn't kinked.
1 - Unplug the washing machine. Lift the front end and place two-by-four blocks under each foot to keep the front elevated. 2 - Unscrew the three screws at the bottom of the panel, using a Phillips screwdriver. Remove the panel. The drain pump assembly is directly in front of you, in the middle of the machine. 3 - Unscrew the knob on the drain pump by turning it counterclockwise. Hold a bucket in front of the pump while you remove the knob to catch the water. There may be as much as 2 or 3 gallons. 4 - Turn the knob over. The filter is on the back. Check the filter and remove any debris or lint. Replace the drain filter onto the pump. Screw on the access cover. Take the machine off the blocks and plug it in.

Whirlpool washing machine AWM 5100 has stopped going thru the full cycle.


My machine did a similar thing and in my case, it was debris in the filter. It took several clear-outs before the object appeared.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer were is the drain filter


Hi.

With Whirlpool top loader models the pump is located at the bottom of the appliance. The pump is accessed from underneath the appliance. Some model may have an access panel at the back. I think that with the Ultimate Care models the pump must be accessed from underneath. Here a repair video.
Here parts and diagrams.

Washer is flashing f2


F2 on a Whirlpool Duet means their is a problem with the Drain Pump or Drain Pump Filter. The Drain Pump and Filter are located at the bottom of the Washing machine. You must remove the front, bottom panel to gain access to the Drain Pump and Filter. Disconnect the Filter and Drain Hoses and clear them out. If they are clear, you may need to replace your Drain Pump.

I am getting an FL code on the screen


the fl code on this machine usually means that there is a problem with the drain pump or something to do with the draining process. if you turn your machine up and look on the bottom most calypso units have a access panel that can be removed from bottom requires to remove a few screws ..there is a drain pump on the middle right side of unit ...there is either an obstruction in the pump ,one of the hoses to the pump or the pump has failed itself.... hope this helps you out and good luck....

The digital box shows the letter FL. We cannot get maching to operate. We cannot get the FL off the box.


The FL error code means:
Flood Condition:
FL flashes if any overfill condition occurs. This condition occurs when excessive water in the tub causes the overfill switch to trip. The control must realize that the trip was due to an overfill condition instead of a suds lack condition in order for FL to be displayed

With an overfill condition, the beeper repeats a warning every 10 seconds with no time-out. The pump is cycled in drain mode for 30 seconds on, 30 seconds off until the overfill switch resets or power is discontinued to the unit.

Press STOP/CANCEL to clear the display.

This problem I see on these are the water pumps getting clogged with lint or other things, causing the pump not to pump all of the water out at times.

There is a check "valve" in the drain assembly that seems to sometimes cause problems with the FL error code. You can remove this piece, and might avoid changing the pump.

Whirlpool calypso top load washer stuck on FL


Fl means flood
you either have a bad flood switch or something is in the pump.
the pump is located under the washer
if you where to tip back and remove the 3 5/16 inch screws and look to the very right you will see the pump.
it could be these 2 things and or it could be something in your sump balls. which you would need special tools to gain access to.
let me know if this helps

Whirlpool washer will not drain


Well i think you should be looking in the filter? Or in the pump. These are the only thiongs that will stop it from draining or spinning! The machine will not spin if it has water in it. It will go into spin inhibit to protect the machine. Check for lost items and then look at pump/filter if nothing then replace the pump then you will be ok.
