Re: Whirlpool AWM6120 Front Load Washer
Cleaning depends on use. 8 years is a bit over the top!
When your water does not drain, check the outlet filter first, then the pipe from below the tub to the filter. Your washer wont spin 'cause the pump/filter is blocked.

Ok can you take the front panel of the washer off easily?
If you can look for the motor pump assembly. Start the washer with no load, turn the water level down to the small and fill with water when it goes into agitation does it make the noise? if not turn timer to spin and see if motor makes the noise.
One other thought, maybe the smell is coming from the dryer?
Let me know. I wont be on line again until Friday Sorry
