Filter burnt? Replacement all that is needed?

Recommended Posts


  • Recently my washing machine just decided to stop working.  The cycle would seem to start, but then after a few moments it would stop.  I checked the filter and it seemed to look and smell burnt.  (see picture attached)
  • The machine did not fill with water and the clothing could be removed after it was turned off for several moments.
  • There has been no sign of errors or burning smell observed before this.

Would you recommend that the faulty filter just needs to be replaced or is there a more significant problem and a major repair or new machine is required?

The Machine is Whirlpool AWM 6145.

Thank you for your assistance.

Hi. Is that the pump filter? If it is, and it's definitely burnt I can only assume that the pump burned out.
