The pump is located behind the front bottom access panel. Remove the said panel and you'll see the pump assembly with the pump filter on it. Place a shallow pan or lay a piece of towel under the pump assembly to catch residual water from the pump then turn the filter knob counterclockwise to remove it. Also turn the pump impeller to check for any debris or restriction. Make sure the drain hose is not clogged or kinked. You may need to replace the pump if cleaning the filter, the impeller and the drain hose do not address the flashing of the clean pump indicator or if the impeller is restricted.

Whirlpool WFS1071BW front load washing machine -

Unplug your washing machine and then you will be able to get the door open and the clothes out. You may need to leave it off for awhile to get it to work but make sure you have a bucket ready to catch the water coming out.

Front loading whirlpool machine WFS1072AW which needs pump clean

WFS1072AW has a clip in panel at the bottom across the front.
Removing this will reveal a black plug on the right.
Unscrew this and water will gush out along with (hopefully) the offending coins.
