Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

Following are my complete and hopefully 'coverall' pre-typed guidance notes for checking both the drain motor filter and the drain motor ;-0)

REMOVE POWER AND ENSURE YOU HAVE A WATER RECEPTACLE/RAGS TO SOAK UP THE WATER WHICH IS BOUND TO POUR OUT (alternatively use a wet vac as sensibly suggested by VinnyB1234!)
If you are unsure where the filter is, it is often behind the front lower (kick) panel (or in some machines at the rear in an awkward position!). These panels are either held on by (plasic) screws or will just pull off. Most filters are held in by a round cover/knob. Sometimes the filter will not come out with the cover and you will have to persuade it to come out to play.
It's surprising what people have found in theirs! It is always worthwhile checking it on a regular basis.
Now- whilst the filter is removed it is normally possible to see the drain motor and ensure it is not jammed by a foreign object such as a needle or a toothpick. It should be able to be turned by hand/finger- the power IS OFF!
At this point it is also possible to test if the motor works. No clothes or water in the machine, select a spin cycle and put the power back on. You should be able to see the motor turning at some point, possibly straight away. Using something suitable like a glove see if it is easy to briefly slow the motor down. If it is easy then the motor is malfunctioning.

If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

SOURCE: the Whirlpool AW/OD 4545 front loader machine says clean pump

The back of the machine has an access door open it and at the bottom of the unit follow the hose from the barrel and the unit it connects to is your pump. I hope this helps.

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!!

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,

If your machine has a filter, which most models do have, it is the filter which probably requires cleaning but check the operation of the pump/motor at the same time ;-0)

Error F05 on my awod as147 steam washing maching


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
F05 for Whirlpool washers decodes as 'NTC failure'. NTC stands for Negative Temperature Co-efficient and all that means is the water temperature sensor ;-0)
I have heard that occasionally it can be brought back to life by pouring in a few kettles of hot water into the washer, leaving for 10 minutes, spinning the water out and re-trying. If it doesn't work it means a service call. Sorry ;-0(
Good luck,
John C.
