Evacuated water is not filtered.
There is a lint trap on the pump.
It is accessed from the bottom.
Prop the unit up on wood blocks, and remove the front kick panel using Torx bits.

Washer wont drain showin IE


Sonia, you either have a failed drain pump, or something has bypassed the filter ( bobby pins are notorious for this ) and is jamming up the pump impeller. If you can set the washer to drain/spin and can hear the pump running, you most likely have a impeller that has broken off of the pump motor shaft and will need to be replaced. If you cannot hear the pump running, and can hear a slight humming noise, then there is something jammed in the pump. The pump can be removed and cleared of the possible foriegn object. I can provide instructions on pump removal if needed.

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.

My dishwasher won't empty


This condition is commonly caused by:

- Drain pump jammed

When you wash your clothes, any small objects (e.g. hair pins, coins etc) are flushed down the drain pipe but often get jammed in the drain pumps impellar (this is the tiny propeller on the pump).

Firstly, place a bucket on the floor....then lower your drain hose (from your tub) into the bucket - the gravity will naturally drain the water into the bucket. Be careful to raise the hose and empty the bucket each time, until the machine is empty. Remove any wet clothes from machine (you will need the bowl to be emptied).

Once empty, you can now check the drain pump.

Turn the machin off at the power.

Locate the drain pump cover (usually near the drain hose, on the back or side). Place a large towel on the floor beneath the pump cover (as remaining water will escape onto the floor). Unscrew the drain pump cover and allow the water to drain (if your pump cover contains a filter, then clean everything from this filter).

Then, look inside the drain pump cavity for anything obstructing the little propeller (remove any objects). Insert your finger inside the cavity and rotate the little propeller - you should feel a resistance, similar to a rubber band.

Re-install the drain pump cover (or filter) and ensure it is sealed properly. Turn ON at the wall.

Fill your bucket with water (from tub) and pour into your machine.

Turn machine ON, and select the last SPIN (or drain) cycle and check if machine now drains correctly. If ok, then problem now solved and you can put the clothes back into the machine for a final rinse/spin.

If machine still not draining after inspecting the drain pump, then you may have a suspected faulty drain pump - a technician can run a diagnostic process on your machine's control pad to find the diagnostic codes.

Please do let me know, if the above process helps you solve this.

Cheers,

Washer won't spin and clothes remain soaked.


Try this:
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 plastic bag to collect water when you unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully. Check your pump too.

FUll of Bubbles and won't drain


That is the filter compartment that you accessed. I believe ( and you can verify ) that there is a short hose with a cap next to that filter that you can extend to control the drain off into a container or two. If you haven't cleaned the filter for a long time, there is a good chance that it is blocked up with junk that limits the system from draining properly. I had that problem myself. Also, these front loaders use HE detergent and Ihad been filling the detergent cup up to the mark but you because these use very little water during the wash cycle I was advised to use only a few drops... Yes drops.. and I have been and clothes come out just as clean. maybe even a bit less if you buy X2 or X3 HE detergent. Hope my bad experience with this helps you...

SPIN


Refer to manual; your filter could be blocked, or something could be clogged in the drain pipes. Plug off the wall & check the pipes, filter first.

Spin Cycle doesn't work on our GE Energy Star frontloader, please help


You may have to remove the lower panel and clean the drain pump filter. Easy job, once the panel is removed the filter will be right in front. Get a bucket and unscrew the filter cover (3 very small screws at the bottom of the front panel) and you should find a ton of lint and stuff in there. This model has a pressure switch that detects if there is water in the tub. If so it will do this pause and slow spin. Once the pump filter is clean you should be good again. It worked for me.
