SOURCE: LInt filter

Find you owners manual, it should say how to clean the button trap on your pump

Unplug the machine FIRST!

Get some towels, you will have water coming out.

if the tub is full of water you will need to bale it out!

Remove the lower front panel, usually two screws,

look for the pump it will have hoses on it. now lay some towels around, expect water.

Unscrew the end of the pump, if it has a button trap or lint filter.
it will be on or near the pump refer to your owners manual

If you dont have an owners manual you may find it at Samsung.com?

HW5513M Hoover washer dryer has a coin filter which I clean regularly, but washer door seal (and hence laundry) has wet fluff buildup. How do I prevent this?


There should be a lint filter somewhere in the dryer. Even with a lint filter you are likely to get accumulation around the door seal.

Where is the lint filter on Speed Queen...


You didn't say if it was top or front loading and did not include a model number. The model number is usually on a tag that is covered by the lid or door.
As far as I know most washers do not filter out lint during the wash but rely on the lint being suspended in the wash water and expelled with the dirty and rinse waters. Many do have filters in the drain that do need to be cleaned at times but the symptom is usuall a slow drain or not draining.

Hi i have aburning smell coming from the machine but the machine works ok


Be sure the lint filter is clean, and the temp sensor blown clean. Sometimes when cleaning the lint filter the some small amount of lint drops by the filter or screen and land on a hot spot. Lint can catch fire so clean with a air hose or vacuum cleaner - Good luck and be safe

Where can I clean lint out of GE front-loader washing machine


You don't give the model number, so I can not know for sure. That being said, on newer front load GE washers there is a filter access right on the lower side of the very front of the machine. On many slightly older GE front load washers you will have to take the lower portion of the front panel off to find a filter access. On them, it is usually a bit to the right side, about an inch and a half round removable plug with filter attached. Be advised that when you take it out the remaining water from inside the machine and it's pump and hoses will also come out, so be prepared.

Remove lint holder on ge front loader dryer


I have the exact same problem. I am amazed at had been the engineering is for such a simple process. The user guide just says to clean the lint filter. Even when doing so, there is still an excessive build up of lint beyond reach. There are no instructions that mention how to clean this part. It is obvious that GE did not test this part of the machine.

GE top load washer w/no lint trap leaves excessive lint


Most US-sold washers made after the mid 1980s don't have lint filters. The manufacturers weasel-word around it by saying that the lint "goes down the drain", leading people to optimistically assume that there is a self-cleaning filter in there somewhere. There usually isn't and whatever lint doesn't go down the drain is filtered by your cloths (but whatever does might clog your septic system). As a result of this scam, it's much harder to hang-dry or iron-dry clothes that haven't been hand washed. And, if you think spending $2000 on a pair of matched "front-load" style machines will solve this, you might be wrong; many of those washers still have no lint filter.
