Would a faulty water pump cause the unit to stop, beep and blink an f code, then eventually lock the door with a load of wet clothes inside?
Answer Yes if the water is not pumping out, then the machine thinks it is flooding and shuts off, and locks the door for safety.

Water does not drain after cycle.
Answer Hello Victor. Check and see if the pump is clogged or if the lid switch is bad on the unit. You can test the lid switch with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
I just need to change the pump motor not the whole assembly, why cant I get just motor?
Answer Hello Whitey! Unfortunately, the manufacturer only offers the drain pump with the motor as an assembly, part number 280187. Sorry about that!
how do I check for and open clogged drain pump?
Answer Darlene, You'll need to remove the lower access panel from the front of the washer, and unplug the power cord. Then you can turn the drain pump filter/cap counterclockwise and remove the cap and filter to check for clogs and clean out any debris that has accumulated inside the pump. You'll need a container, or some rags or towels to collect the water that will spill out from the pump.
I have a whirlpool duet front loader, model number GHW9100LW1, all day yesterday I had the flashing F code and I hear a clicking sound, and there was still water in the in tube, just would not drain. Does that mean its the pump
If the water is not draining from the unit, you will want to access the drain pump and check it for clogs. A clogged drain pump would cause the issue. You will also want to check to make sure that the pump is getting proper power when the unit goes to drain cycle.
