How do you remove the front panel to access the water pump?
I found the problem. There was a blockage in the drain hose located between the pump and the washer tub. The blockage was a small cloth that was wedged between the check valve and the end of the hose that feeds the pump. I also found 10 coins and miscellaneous items in the basin of the pump. Lesson learned - always check the pockets before loading clothes into the washing machine.
Is this a good question?
