Front loading washer pump AP3953640, PS1485610, is located on the base of the washer, just inside the front access panel. It has a removable cap in the event that the pump needs cleaned out. Sometimes buttons, coins, nails and various other items left in the pockets of clothing will find their way to the pump. You will know something is in the pump because it will rattle as the impeller flips it around. To clean out the pump, unplug the washer after you make sure that the tub is not full water. If there is water in the tub, it won’t be there for long when you remove the pump clean out cap. Under normal conditions, there will be a good deal of water that comes out when you remove the cap so be prepared with some extra towels. Remove the two screws that hold the front access panel on and remove it. Rotate the clean out cap counterclockwise to gain access to the debris in the pump.
