Re: how to clean the pump on a whirlpoolb front loader
Remove the three screws securing the bottom access panel. There you will find a pump filter that you can unscrew and remove debris. Removing the pump from the mounting position and pulling forward slightly will make draining a little easier. UNSCREW AND DRAIN SLOWLY as there will be lots of water to catch..

You have a code telling you to clean the pump now thats a first are you sure it says clean the pump filter? more info as to why you are needing to clean the pump filter its not really easy trust me, unless you have done it before which i am guessing you havent.
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.
Not knowing which model you have makes it a bit difficult. Most front loaders have a little trap door down on the front panel somewhere. Behind this door is access to the pump filter. Usually, it just unscrews, and you pull it out. If your machine is full of water, expect a mess. remove any buildup of fluff, foreign objects etc. If your machine has no trap or access. Unplug the machine and drag it away from the wall. Lean the machine back against the wall to gain access underneath. You should be able to see a large hose from the tub to the front ( or side) of the pump. They are usually held on by a spring clip. Slide the clip back or unscrew the clip to enable you to pull the hose off the pump. Clean out any foreign objects you find. As before, if the machine is full of water, expect a mess. Front loader drain hoses usually exit out the top of the machine so lying the end of the drain hose on the ground wont drain the water.
there is a pump filter in the bottom front right side get a screw driver pop the cover off unscrew the plug/catcher & clear anything out thats in there and if it still doesnt work the pump has probably failed.
