Remove bottom panel. You should see a trap on the pump. Rotate cover ccw. Have pan ready to catch some water, or some towels.

    thanks for the tip, but you have to make sure up pull the tap out to collect what is in side. I got a bonus $4.35 out of it.

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.

Whirlpool front loader WFS1273AW why is thewater continuing to run during cycle


If it's only on one cycle it is a controller fault giving the inlet solenoid power all the time. This would be very unusual. It is more likely to be something in the inlet valve allowing water through.

My Whirlpool washing machine WFS1273AW, has been displaying "clean pump" and F02. I have cleaned the pump and even had a repair man change the pump. However the machine won't move beyond the wash cycle and...


The same thing happened to me and it was because there were socks stuck where the drain pipe attaches to the machine. If you tip your machine on its side and pull the black pipe off from the bottom of the drum you can remove anything which is stuck. Then it just clips back on again with a metal clip.

If you are talking about the drain pump strainer, you need to remove the lower front panel. should be 3 screws on the bottom facing forward. Once you have that off, the pump strainer is almost in the center, facing you. unscrew it counterclockwise to remove.

I have a wfs1273aw and its "clean pump" light is on an will not finish wash what do i do?


It sounds like your "drain pump" is either blocked or seized. Does the washing machine have a coin trap or small door at the front? If so, then open it, unscrew the plunger behind the door, then check inside for any foreign objects/material. Tip: Using a torch helps a lot.
