Hi, you can sometimes see the important bit of the pump - called the impellor - when you remove the filter from the bottom of the machine, It is usually behind the panel below the door.

If you peer in there with a torch, that missing sock might just be within reach with a pair of pliers or some kind of hooky thing.

But take care, if the pump is jammed the machine might have wuite a lot of water in it, which will want to come out when you remove the filter. (Unless you pull the machine out from under the work surface and tilt it backwards against a wall or friend.)

If these suggestions do help you solve the problem, please give my reply a rating to help others judge my knowledge / guessing skills. If they do not, please delay the rating and add a comment
with more details so I can try to help you further. Cheers, D

Whirlpool AWO/D 4605 Clean Pump light on, how do I


Remove bottom plastic panel across the front of machine- it just clips off (use a small screwdriver or bread knife to prise off). You will now see a round filter behind this panel- unscrew anticlockwise to remove- this is the filter. Sometimes filter can be hard to remove if you have things jammed in it- give it bit of a jiggle and it should come out without forcing it. Remember- if there is still water in the machine, this water will come out on the floor once you remove the filter- put down some towels!! Happy fixing!!

The clean water pump is flashing on my whirlpool awo/d4505 washing machine where is the pump and how do i clean it ?


There should be a access panel on the front of the machine at floor level.

This will have a filter which you need to clean. This filter is on the input to the pump.

Unplug your machine and unclip the plastic trim panel across the bottom of the machine (front) to reveal the circular pump filter cover. Unscrew this cover with your fingers and remove any debris inside. Put the cover back on, clip the panel back on and try your machine again. Should be fine.
