Possible thaat the drain pump is clogged and must be cleaned out as the filter is choked.
so remove the drain and have it cleaned and reset , also check you inlets and drain hose.

Hi

As you have already tried to clean everything and still the issue is there then take the drain pump out and clean it completely, if the issue returns then replace the drain pump assembly. You can check this video to replace/clean the drain pump:


Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

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.

I have a whirlpool WFS1071BD. When we wash the red light comes on saying clean pump and i can not find the manual can you help me out. Cheers Mark


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

This is the WFS1071AW version of the manual and the pump cleaning instructions are the same:
http://www.whirlpool.com.au/app.cnt/whr/au_AU/pageid/pgsrvifuhome001
And then enter "WFS1071" Instructions for removing the filter are on page 14 of the user manual.
(Wth pictures)

Pump / Filter cleaning POWER OFF UNIT UNPLUGED:

Basically you open the lower panel by pushing down and pulling toward you at the top. Use something like a cake pan for catching water. Grasp the CIRCULAR filter and rotate it COUNTER CLOCKWISE until the water starts draining. WAIT until all the water possible drains. Then unscrew the filter and pull it out. Clean out any debris. Make sure to reach deep into the filter hole and CAREFULLY clean off the sensor if you can reach it and then reinstall the filter by rotating clockwise. Last steps install the lower panel and PLUG IN POWER.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly
