Remove the 2 screws by the floor,then remove the cover below the door,there is a clean out cover to remove to let you clean it out,have a pan ready because it will make a mess and a stinky one at that

SOURCE: Hi, I have a whirlpool WFS1071BW

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.

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.

It sounds like there is sediment in the pump housing. Take it apart and clean out the area the impeller runs in or failing that change your pump

I have a whirlpool WFS1071BW & the bowl doesn't turn, so it won't spin to wash or spin at all. It still drains fine though.


sounds like you broke the motor coupling,also the model number you sent doesn't come up.remove the two screws that hold the top console down,flip up the console,remove the two metal clips and unplug the harness closest to the right clip.open the lid,grab the frame tilt it up and back and the whole frame can be removed.look at the bottom,remove the two clips and slide the pump off,do the same to the motor and on the back you'll find the motor coupling.most likely it will be broke.remove the other half off of the tranny.install the new coupling and you should be fine.if you need anymore help let me know

Clean pump light keeps coming on the machine is a WHIRLPOOL WFS1071AW 7.5KG


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.
