The Pump is directly behind the bottom panels plug. The Pump is gravity fed via a large pipe connected to the bottom of the drum sink (The bit that collects all the water from the the bit that spins). There are 2 outputs from the pump. The pressure side (coming out of the hose) and the auxillary drain (the black plug behind the bottom panel). Undo the plug as mentioned above... and if you have taken the thing outside to drain it, you might as well tip the machine up on its side and pull out the big hose off the drum sink (mentioned in a post above) to check that nothing is blocking that either, As you will see when you tip it up and look in from underneath the machine, it's just a small pump, easilily accessible. Nothing complicated about it.

SOURCE: WHIRLPOOL WASHING MACHINE AWO/D 5716 - CANNOT LOCATE PUMP

Remove the bottom casing covering the front of the machine just above the floor. Unscrew the circular cap SLOWLY- beware of vast amounts of water escaping though!
I had to use a low height roasting pan to catch water, and just unscrew the cap enough so as to control the flow of water, and enable to empty water away until its all gone. Incidentally, an old hairgrip was found to be the cause of my problem.
Confusingly, "clean pump" meant clean filter!

SOURCE: My Whirlpool washing machine WFS1273AW,

The same thing happened to me and it was because there were socks stuck where the drain pipe attaches to the machine. If you tip your machine on its side and pull the black pipe off from the bottom of the drum you can remove anything which is stuck. Then it just clips back on again with a metal clip.

SOURCE: 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!!

My machine is about 8 years old and it's a WFS1273BW I did one wash and was fine then did second lot and this clean pump light comes up.no idea what to do as there is 10 min left and it's soaking wet.


Clean pump means there is a clog. It is unable to drain. You will need to locate the pump, take off the drain hose and clean out any debris. Water will come out, so use a pan under the pump. Good luck!

I have a whirlpool WFS1073CD and getting a red light indicator saying clean pump. It appears to be washing normally but wont go into the spin cycle. I have drained the water via the filter plug under


Hi Maureen
Wow.... at least this model has an indicator light telling you what the problem is. Many machines don't!
I think the reason it won't go into the spin cycle is that the water can't exit through the pump.
The usual cause is that a sock or something is caught or blocking the pump.
Power OFF of course.
Follow the drain hose back to the pump & try unclipping the hose off either side to feel for a blockage with your finger.
Pump blockage is a common occurrence in washing machines.
Good Luck

My washing machine wfs1273bw keeps saying clean pump, how do i do this. I have released the plug on the bottom right corner which lets water out but then it happens again....


Releasing the plug to drain the water won't solve your problem. Your washing machine has a pump that controls the flow of water. There might be an object like coins, or metal from your laundry that may have been included during the washing and is now blocking the pump. Try to unscrew the paddle that rotates during washing. By removing it, you can manually remove any possible obstacle that keeps blocking your pump that causes your washing machine to alert you to clean the pump.

We have a whirlpool front loader WFS1273BW 7.5 kg We did a wash then went to use it again and it wont open or do the cycle and a F-08 is displaying on the display window what do we do and how do we...


That is an overflow condition.
Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked
Check the wire harness to the drain pump, pressure switch and Central Control Unit
Check and clean the drain pump filter of foreign objects
Check for drain pump failure
Check that the inlet valve shuts off fully
Check that the pressure switch is operational.

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.

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.
