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!!

SOURCE: i have a whirlpool WFS1071BD.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

This is the WFS1071AW version of the manual and the pump cleaning instructions are the same:
http://www.whirlpool.com.au/app.cnt/whr/au_AU/pageid/pgsrvifuhome001
And then enter "WFS1071" Instructions for removing the filter are on page 14 of the user manual.
(Wth pictures)

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,
Kelly

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.

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!

Single mother of four wash machine not working only 2 yrs old.


Take off electricity wire, Open the filter from the front( maybee need to remove a rectangular cover.) turn the filter anti-clockwise. take out the hairneedle or coin. (the water will come out from the filter so make preparation with towels., see inside the filter if something is stucked around the small propellar. Turn the electricity back on. choose for example pumping program or centrifugeprogram. After that the machine should work.

Clean pump indicator light on washing machine whirlpool wfs1273bw


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.

I have a whirlpool model # WTW6700TW it's 2 yrs old, it will not drain and said 8-d. I did not get an owners manual with my washer and can't find one on line.


If you go to www.whirlpool.com click on (owner center) on top of the page,scrool down click (manuals and literature) select ( consumer ) then type in your model number,then you can view,save,and of print a owners,warrenty, or parts manual. I think the error was either SD OR LD SD is suds detected either to much or the wrong detergent used. Or LD is for long drain, caused by a restriction under the basket or a drain pump not working properly,,,, Hope this Helps

Whirlpool frontload duet washer F 6 problem


hello cjkcp
Welcome to Fixya

You said, your washer (now 4 yrs old) occasionally stops mid cycle flashing F 6 code. Is this something we can fix or do I have to call a repair man?

F/06 Drive Motor Tachometer Error

The control is unable to properly detect motor speed and the machine will shut down. If a failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door will be unlocked after 3 minutes.
  • Check wire harness connections between the Drive Motor/Tachometer and the Motor Control Unit (MCU), and between the MCU and the Central Control Unit (CCU)
  • Check the Drive Motor
  • Check the MCU
  • Check the Wire Harness

I believe this needs a hands on tech to daignose this. Unless you feel you undrstand the problem your self?

Thank you for using our service for advice.
