How do I access the drain pump on a Whirlpool Duet washing machine model WFW94HEXW2?

Hi Marc,
Unfortunately, access to the pump & filter is harder on the HEXW2 model than the Duets with the removable lower panel.
First you have to remove the lid panel (screws in top rear), then pull slightly rearward and up/out.
Next you'll have to remove the control panel, then remove the front drum boot from the front panel lip. A large diameter thin wire spring holds it in place, located just under the rubber lip edge. Begin the spring removal from a wire tab located toward the lower portion of the lip.

Then remove the door latch screws (IIRC), and the screws at the bottom edge and top of the front panel. The entire front panel must be removed to access the drain filter.

F02 is fault code for DRAIN, the pump may be blocked or the drain hose blocked or kinked. Most washers have an access plug behind the lower front panel of the machine which you can open and check for blockage of the pump.

Drain wont drain on a epic washer where is the drain filter located at

The drain filter is located in the pump behind front bottom panel. 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.

The water wont drain and the is a clicking noise coming out of the water pump motor

Something may be stuck in the pump impeller causing it to make a clicking or rattling noise. Disconnect power then remove the lower front access panel to access the pump filter and the pump impeller.

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.

Drain the water into a bucket or shallow pan and lay a piece of towel under the pump filter prior to the removal of the filter. Turn the filter knob counterclockwise to remove and clean it. Reach in the pump to check if it is restricted or detached from the pump motor spline. Replace the pump assembly if the impeller is broken or detached.

Made a odd sound like a spoon in a garbage disposal then would not turn on.

Hi, thanks for using! I suspect there is something caught down in the blower wheel. To access, remove front panel by inserting a putty knife between the lower panel and upper panel about 2" in from each side. Depress clips and pull top of lower panel down, pull panel off and set aside. Remove lint filter and then remove the two 1/4" screws from each side of the metal filter housing. Remove housing to access blower wheel and remove any foreign objects, likely to be an underwire from a bra...most common!

The pump needs to be unblocked how do i do it? its a front loader

You can check the drain filter by removing the lower front panel and the front top panel/door assembly.It may be accessible by just removing the lower panel. Once the panel is removed, you will notice a drain pump at the lower center right section of the unit with a hose running to the housing. On the front of the pump, there will be a filter twist cap. Twist and remove that cap and pull out the filter to remove any obstructions and debris that may exist. Once you have achieved a good cleansing, replace the filter cap and assemble the panel. Try to initiate a cycle. If the cleansing of the filter does not correct the spin out, this will confirm that the issues are serious and it will isolate the motor control board as the lone culprit.

Here is a picture of the filter cap and pump.

How do you clean out the filter on a whirlpool duet sport washer?

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 easy access to the three screws securing the lower front access panel to the cabinet. Remove the screws and pull down the lower front access panel to remove it from the cabinet.

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 three mounting screws.

Take off whirlpool duet front panel for filter

1. Remove the lower panel under the door by loosening the three screws under the bottom edge on the front of the washer. HINT: If you prop up the front feet of the washer with some small blocks of wood, this will make access to the screws much easier.
2. With the screws removed, the lower panel should drop down then come off. If the panel sticks, a light tap on either side will knock it loose.

KA dryer has been running without a lint filter. Other owner. I need to know how to take off the front and back panal to clean inside due to fire hazzard. Mdl # KGYE800TWHO . Need schematic drawing. I am...

Disconnect Power. Lift Cover on lint filter. Remove two Phillips screws taking care NOT to allow them to fall into the blower housing. Next, place a putty knife in the space between the upper and lower panel at the front of the dryer about 4 inches in from either side to push up the retaining clips while pulling on the lower panel. This will release the lower panel and give you full access to all the main components and most internal areas needing cleaning.

The only area affected by running with no lint filter is accessed by removing the rear panel. With rear off, the filter housing on the left will have several 5/16" hex head screws to be removed for access to the blower wheel and housing interior. With screws removed go to front and insert putty knife in the seam between the top and front panels about 4 inches in from both sides. Lift top at same time and raise when disengaged.The filter housing can now be moved sufficiently to vacuum the interior from the rear removing any large foreign objects first.

You have now cleaned all the dryer areas that need cleaning. Don't forget the airflow through the vent line of the house.

Reverse the above process to reassemble unit. Good Luck.

Code ld slow to drain

You do not state a model, or even a brand name, but ld normally means Long Drain, and generally is caused by a build up in the filter just before the pump. On many washers, there is a filter access on the front lower panel of the washer. Other brands require the lower section of the front panel to be removed to gain access to the filter.
