Unplug the machine then remove the screws attaching the lower front access panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and off. Prop up the lower front edge of the washer or cushion the rear top edge with cloth and lean the washer against the wall for an easy access of the screws.

Place a shallow pan or lay a towel under the filter to catch the water from the pump. Unscrew the filter from the pump assembly and drain the water. Clean the filter and screw it back into the pump assembly. Slide the lower front access panel up back into the cabinet and secure it with the attaching screws.

I have a WFS1071AW-7.5kg. It is stopping mid cycle and showing a red "Clean Pump" light on the front panel. Where is the pump and how do I clean it? Your help would be appreciated.


The pump is hidden below the removable kick plate at the bottom of the machine. Hold the plinth on either side and pul it downwards and outwards to remove it. The filter is unscrewed by turning anticlockwise.

This is covered in page 11 of your manual, a pathetically poor scanned PDF copy of which is supplied by whirlpool Australia if you go to this web address:

http://www.whirlpool.com.au/app.cnt/whr/au_AU/pageid/pgsrvifuhome001/DOCTYPE/IFU/DOCLANGUAGE/AU

Enter WFS1071AW As the commercial code and select language ENGLISH

Note: This model has no drain hose to get rid of residual water, suggest you tip the machine back 45 degrees and have a towel ready to catch any leaked water.

When my washing machine is on the wash cycle and it is using the detergent... water and soap suds pour out of the detergent dispenser and run down the front of the washing machine, why? I use proper front...


Hello,

There is an article of clothing stuck inside the dispenser housing. Remove the top and the housing to get to the hose and clean it out. Very common issue, I know this unit very well.

I have a front loader WFS1071AW 7.5kg and it leaks loads of water and suds from under the detergent tray when filling. What is wrong with it???


The hose down from the back of the dispenser to the drum is blocked.

Take out the soap drawer and use a babys feeding bottle brush to clean out the pipe

Either that or take off the top of the machine (Normally two screws on the back of the top panel)

Then remove the pipe and clean it you may need a pair of Corbin Clip pliers to do so , at a push use Mole Grips

Hi the problem with your machine is the fact the transit straps have not been removed!! Remove them and you will not hear another thing from it. Look at the manual to find out how to take them off!
