1. Using the wrong detergent in the washer. These washers require the so-called high efficiency detergents which do not produce as much suds as conventional detergents.
2. Something blocking the pump suction or discharge hose. I have found feminine undergarments to be a particularly egregious offender in this regard.

Run the washer through a complete cycle without adding any detergent. You make have to reset an FL during this time. That's fine, do what you gotta do but complete the cycle with no detergent. Then report back here.

Get back to a known condition and run the washer with no detergent and no clothes.
Suds out the standpipe: Either a restricted pipe or your detergent sucks.

Going through complete cycle now. But it made it through about 4 loads last time before having problems again.
Do you have to buy the pump and motor together?
