The sensors are two metal strips inside the drum. They are on the right side just behind the filter. They are silver colored and have a slight curve to them. You cannot see them unless you put your head inside the drum. I clean my sensors with a non metal pot cleaner like 3M Scotch Brite. These sensors also fail if you dry silicon backed carpets.

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 and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.
This is the WFS1071AW version of the manual and the pump cleaning instructions are the same:
And then enter "WFS1071" Instructions for removing the filter are on page 14 of the user manual.
Pump / Filter cleaning POWER OFF UNIT UNPLUGED:
Basically you open the lower panel by pushing down and pulling toward you at the top. Use something like a cake pan for catching water. Grasp the CIRCULAR filter and rotate it COUNTER CLOCKWISE until the water starts draining. WAIT until all the water possible drains. Then unscrew the filter and pull it out. Clean out any debris. Make sure to reach deep into the filter hole and CAREFULLY clean off the sensor if you can reach it and then reinstall the filter by rotating clockwise. Last steps install the lower panel and PLUG IN POWER.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

SOURCE: We have a whirlpool front
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.
