SOURCE: i cant get the filter out of my washing machine help please

DO NOT keep trying to force the filter, especially not with pliers! Mine wouldn't turn, and when I eventually got it out it was because a coin was stuck in there! Rattle it left and right many times to free the coin, and eventually it will come out, but if you force it, either the plastic filter will break or the coin. Guess which?!

SOURCE: Bosch Nexxt 500 Electric Dryer: lint filter light goes on even though it does not need emptying

I had the same problem and figured if the lint sensor is clogged, covered or otherwise gummed up with lint, dirt, hair, etc then this will continue to happen regardless of wether the lint trap is clean.

So I took my compressor and blew out the slot where the trap slides into...stuff flew everywhere (so watch your eyes or wear goggles). I then vaccumed it up and did it again... and again and again each time loads of stuff came out. Once nothing blew out I loaded the dryer and have not had the problem since...

This makes sense right? so if you can try this solution.

Sometimes a bigger object might block the filter knob, and make it impossible to screw out. Then the only way is to remove the end of the sump hose attached to the filter and remove the stuck object.
(In my filter this object was an Umbraco key) :-)

Our Maytag Centennial Commercial washer is exactly 3 weeks old today. I've done about 12 loads in it so far, none of them heavy. I put in a load today, and it wouldn't start. I unplugged it


I would suggest that as it is a new unit , it is covered by warranty so why don't you call the service agent for a warranty inspection and fix rather than loosing your cool
there is nothing you can do while it is under warranty as any fix by other than authorized service persons will void the warranty

Whirlpool wfs1276aw error F06


Drive Motor Tachometer Error
The control is unable to properly detect motor speed and the machine will shut down. If a failure occurs during high-speed spin, the door will be unlocked after 3 minutes.


open the machine and use a dry paint brush

give the motor a good clear off of the carbon dust spent from the brushes

you should while your there take the brushes out and check there condition is ok
they should be long ie longer than 1/2"
if not replace them

as your getting issues i would replace them

and dont forget to brush off the bad carbon dust
it gets everywhere leading to motor issues
as most sensors are low voltage leakage of current accross the dust can upset low voltage stuff easy
and also leed too your homes mains tripping etc

just from dust
i find most often brushes have some life left
but treat it too a new set
as its a bit upset by the old ones anyway
perhaps they have delaminated also

Whirlpool 6th sense wont start cycle


I have the same problem. Look at the previous post, it seems to be the motor brush worn out. I've opened up the machine and checked. The carbon brush remains very little. I am trying to find out a replacement brush

Last night I tempted to clean the large duet washer with the chlorine program. After starting, I realized I only had clorax bleach for colors and reluctantly used this. Large suds formed. I paused/cancel...


Drop your drain hose to floor level with bucket under it this will drain with no power applied , pour in as much water as you can to flush it out / clear pump .After all suds clear refit / restart ..Should now fill, wash/ empty and spin...I hope ...

Whirlpool duet front loader


Sounds like you have a board problem. If the machine is only 1 month old, you should really have a warranty agent look at it. You don't want to do anything that could void the warranty.

Washing Machine won't empty water during the cycle


does the timer advance by itself? if not the problem is your timer not advancing through the cycles. if timer does advance then being 14 1/2 years old it could be the motor. start the washer and mark the beggining where the timer starts. whatch it to see if it moves if not then you need to replace your timer
