If it is a top loader, you will have to remove the wrap-around casing to expose the pump and other components located under the tub.

Clogged drain on LG WM2487HWN washer. how do i clear?

There should be an access door for Pump on front lower left if your unit according to diagrams I am looking at. Remove that small access door. Pump has a screw out filter in front of pump that should be easily accessible. Screw that filter out and clean that and place it screws into. Have thick towels handy as there will be water that comes out when filter is remived. Reinstall filter and access door.

Why will an amana front loader not spin

Sounds like this could be a blocked/air-locked filter. (a common occurance with all machines) not a fault

easy fix if so.

First. switch off the Machine at the socket.
Check your washing machine user manual for the location of the pump filter access screw. (Normally situated behind a front bottom clip out panel) ensure you have a few towels and a couple of pans/dishes at the ready before releasing the access screw, expect 2 or three litres of water to drain... and whatever is blocking the filter. (could just be an air blockage or a small object) replace the filter screw and clip off panel, switch on at mains.

Hope this helps.

How can I best access the pump on my Samsung front load washer? I don't know how to remove the front panel

Some samsung washers have the water pump located in the back of the machine. If your model does not have a small door located in the bottom of front than remove back service panel to access the water pump.

Amana front load washer error code "nd". Door is

Hello there and welcome to fixya
From what you're describing it sounds like the drain pump is blocked. The nd error code indicates "no drain". If the unit can't drain it won't spin. You're going to have to slide the washer out far enough to remove the rear panel; be careful not to damage the floor. Once you get the rear panel off you will see the pump. Be sure to have plenty of towels & a small container to catch water. I am sending you instructions from the service manual to remove and replace the pump. Another possibility is the drain line is blocked or something is stuck in the tub to pump hose.

I have a whirlpool duet sport washer and the question I have is an easy one: how to get the front of th washer off so that I can clean the drain on it? I am afraid that I will break it or take to much off...

Hi, you access the pump as follows:
1. Unplug the machine
2. Remove the lower front panel (the full width metal panel below the door). There should be 3 or 4 screws holding it in place. You may have to tilt the washer back slightly to access the screws.
3. The pump is mounted to the base, and faces forward. Unscrew the clean out plug from the front. Use a shallow pan to catch the small amount of water that is in the pump and hoses. Clean the screen, etc.
4. Put it all back together and plug it in.

Good luck.

F21 fault. How can I fix it fast, the service company can't come for a week. I understand it's the pump or a clog. How do I access the pump. We misplaced the manual.

Warning light pump clean on

The pump filter on a front load washer is usually accessable from the front of the machine at floor level. It may be behind a small door/hatch or behind the kick panel. These pump filters need to be checked and cleaned so that the drain flow is not restricted.
It's also possible that there is a small item like a hair clip or a coin stopping the pump impeller.
Lean the machine back against the wall. this will help contain what water is still in the machine. Unscrew the pump filter and check that the impeller is not jammed. Clean the filter and replace.
If the warning light persists, you may have a faulty pump motor, which would require a serviceman.
Good luck....Nomess

We washed a small rug and we got an E-20 code. what should we do, its having problems draining!

Drain pump screen is clogged. If its makeing a bad grinding sound the pump will need to be replaced. Otherwise disasembly of the machine is required to access pump area to clean out screen. Dextrous people can probaly do this from the back or underneath unit. Its difficult and I don't recomend it to beginers or people who arn't handy. Easiest/prefered method: (This is the one I use.)

Method A units that have a bottom access panel. ie: front panel not one seamless peice.

-unplug unit
-lean back against wall for easy access.
-remove two #2 square screws form access panel.
-Loosen clamp holding hose to tub. (Big black one around 2" in diameter.)
-remove and clean screen.
-reassemble machine and test pump operation.

Method B units the have seamless front panel.

-unplug unit
-remove top. 3 screws @ back, slide top away from machine to remove.
-remove 2 screws holding console onto chasis.
-remove disp
-remove 3 screws @ and behind disp area.
-Remove console. ( tab may be holding to front panel @ middle bottom use putty knife to pry up.)
-remove 4 screws holding front pannel @ top to chasis.
-remove 2 screws holding frong pannel to chasis inside machine. Acess from top. (some models only.)
-remove bottom screws either 4 or 2 usally 4.
-remove two screws holding door lock to front panel
-remove spring from around bellow.
-remove bellow from front pannel
-remove front pannel. Tilts forward and lifts up off supports. (some models only.) or pannel ifs up and off from white tabs in side of chasis.
-unhook wires to door lock from front pannel. (plastic molex tab)
-may now access pump like in method A.

Pump Replacement
-access pump area
-remove drain hose to pump by looseing clamp and pulling off.
-remove hose to tub by losseing clamp and pulling off.
-remove power connection at back left of pump.
-unscrew two philips screws holding pump too base plate. (only one is really required.)
-replace pump
-clean pump screen or add one if not present.
-reconnect hoses.
-replug in power
