Can the drain pump be removed from the washer through the front access hole? I am getting Error 13 during the wash cycle and the manual says it is not draining. I see the water sitting in there. I have to run a quick wash cycle and it drains then. I would like to replace the pump. On your web site Part number 00436440 will work per live chat person.
Answer Hello Charlie,
The drain pump 00436440 cannot be changed through the little hole. The main front panel has to be removed unless you can change it from the rear, (tough but not impossible). Changing the drain pump from the rear does require the removal of the rear panel and reaching through the unit to the front where the drain pump is mounted. Changing it from the front requires the main top, control panel, and main front panel be removed. As a note, the part number listed is correct for the model number posted.
Washer WFMC3200UC/01 I was looking at pump. Is there a way to tell if it is this issue or the control. Is there a way to send into diagnostic to spit out an error code. It keeps getting to 2 minutes left for drain then doesn't finish. Took out the filter nothing stopped up?
Answer Hello Doug,
You should test for voltage to the pump when in drain. If voltage is getting to the pump and it isn't running, the pump has failed. If the pump is running and the water isn't coming out of the drain line and there is no clogs, the impeller has seperated from the motor shaft and the pump should be replaced.
My drain pump was clogged with coins. The unit will not drain or go into the spin cycle. After I manually drain the unit, it will not go into the spin cycle. Question is, when drum has water and not draining, will the remaining cycles freeze and not perform when directed by control knob?
I do not want to replace pump and then find out control module is bad.
Answer Hello Robert,
If the pressure switch sees water is still in the tub the unit will not perform any actions except agitate or drain. For this reason, you should open the main top and find the pressure switch. Remove the rubber hose from it and blow back into the tub through the hose. This basically clears the hose if it is clogged with lint and debris. Since you found debris in the drain pump 00436440, it has most likely failed and will require replacement. If you want to verify the pump has failed, open the unit and remove the wires to the pump and put your test meter on these two wires. If 120Vac is there when the unit is plugged in and put into spin, the pump has indeed failed. If no voltage is present in the spin cycle, the harness 00610156 or the control 00670509 is at fault.
