Tip & How-To about Washing Machines
My front loading clothes washer wasn't draining properly, it wouldn't complete the cycle, and the clothes would come out still sopping wet.
We found that the problem was the filter located next to the water pump. It prevents large items from entering the water pump and causing severe damage to the pump.
To access the filter on my Whirlpool machine I had to remove the top panel, the front control panel, remove the door gasket from the front panel, and then remove the front panel. On some models all that is needed is to remove a panel on the bottom-front of the machine. (I wish mine was like that!)
This video I did on it might help you understand what to look for.
I imagine that a top loading clothes washer has a similar pre-filter.
