Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer.
At the bottom front of your washer is a panel held on by a few screws along the bottom. Remove the screws and behind the panel is a cap that you can remove to check the coin trap. Clear out any debris in there and run another load. If the coin trap is clear please let me know and I will provide further diagnostics and repair information.
OK, I will give that a shot.
It had some stuff in it. I cleaned it out and ran a rinse only cycle. It put water in the tub but never made it to spin. The front panel went from 14 m to 5d. I was not able to cancel out of that so I unplugged it. I then tried to do a spin only cycle and nothing is happening. The washer is full of water. What next.
Any other ideas?
The 5d is an error code. It is telling you that there is a "suds" error. This usually indicates a plugges drain system. Did you check the coin trap?
Your screen may indicate that I have stepped out of the chat. Please do not be alarmed. I will receive a notice at the top of my screen when you have replied.Thank you.
I have cleaned the coin trap. It appears as though the pump is not running.
Ok I will need the model number to see if I have a service manual for you to work from to replace the pump.
Im sure I do but need the model number to be sure I get you the right one.

Please click here to download the manual. Page 4-17 has the information to replace the drain pump. Would you like a link to purchase the new pump on line?
Removed the pump and found rubber hair band in the blades. I have removed them and I am running a rinse/spin cycle. Let's hope that gets it...I am tired of draining the washer tub.
If it turns out to be the pump, where do I go to order it?

Ok. Thanks for the help.
When your front load washer won’t drain, there are several things that could be causing the problem. All are easy to fix if you’re fairly handy, and even the least handy person can fix some of them.
Consult your owner’s manual to identify any error code you’re getting. The manual may tell you an error code indicates that you need a new pump. If you don’t see any specific instructions, turn off the power to the machine and get some towels and a bucket ready so you can identify and hopefully correct the exact problem.
These steps will help you find the problem when your front load washer won’t drain, and if there are any issues you can’t fix yourself, you’ll at least be able to pass the information on to your plumber.
