How do i clean filter

For front loading washing machines the filter is usually at the base in front of the pump unit. You take out the bottom plate and behind it will be a stopper valve. You twist it to expose the filter sump. Take out all the dirt and debris including pins and coins and put it back. Best to empty the base of the washer by pulling out the drain tube which is next to the filter stopper. The tube can be pulled out and after opening the nozzle into a bucket. If the tube is not there then take the sink end of drain hose and empty into bucket by pulling the hose downwards. It will be helpful if you provide make and model of washer to get more specific instructions.

Today I will be showing you how to drain & clean your Drain Filter on a Front Loading Washing Machine.

Be sure to unplug your machine, before doing anything beyond this point.


Most washing machines have a already accessible compartment for your convenience at the front of the machine.

Common compartments can be found here:

Compartments can be opened by any small flat object, insert it at the top and flip it out downwards.


Ready a small bowl, and position under the drain filter compartment. Position towels by the compartment

You now need to drain the water, there should be a small pipe with either a plastic cork / small tap which you can open. Let it drain all the water to the bowl:jedemeyer1_16.jpg

Not all Washing Machines have this pipe fitted, if that is your case, get some more towels, and a low dish for the next step.


Now the filter is the round compartment you can see, it is taken out by turning it anti-clockwise. Once loose, more water will be streaming out (a small amount, if drained adequately in the last step).
Once this filter is out, you can clean the filter cap, which should be out of the machine (In your hand, sir) - Wash it of under a running tap.

Insert your fingers into the Pump Compartment, and remove any gunk (coins, toothpicks, small stones etc), if you push your fingers in deep enough you will feel the drain pump's impeller, make sure this can be moved with no obstruction, by turning it with your fingertips.

Re-insert the filter, close the compartment and plug in your machine again.
It is recommended to clean your filter at least once a week, to avoid build-up that could harm your drain pump.

I hope you have been helped with this Tip.

Where is the pump filter on an lg washer?

The PRIMARY filter for discharged water in most front loaders is located under the opening of the washer behind a small 'door'. There is usually a small tube which you will need to pull the plug from and drain about 2 cups of water into a bucket BEFORE you remove the filter to clean it.
After you unscrew the filter which is mounted from front-to-back and clean it out, replace both filter piece and plug and replace the small drain tube.
Close the access door and operate your machine.
* Clean this filter every month or especially after washing heavy lint-producing materials.

I am getting a d5 error on my samsung front load washer

One common error with these machines Is that the water level sensor pipework has a small hole. The pipe is connected to the drum, and as the unit rotates it will cause the rubber tubing to be degraded. If a small tear appears it will cause the sensor to malfunction - when there is no negative pressure as the water drains (or vacuum) it assumes the water is still there/. Either find the tear and repair with bicyle repair kit, or if the tear is near to the sensor connector - cut off and reattach slightly shorter tube.

LG WM2277HW washer not filling with water. All filters and water pressure checked, still not enough water to get the clothes clean. Any ideas?

Your pressure switch stops the water and allows it to start the next cycle. It's a switch either in the control panel or at the top of the tub with a small tube connected to it which goes down between the inner and outer tub. As the water level increases the air in the tube is compressed until there is enough pressure to "make the switch" stopping the water from filling. This tube can get clogged and the switch won't work. Remove the tube and clean it out. Blowing on the tube when it's still connected to the switch will make the switch if it's working and clear.

Water inlet valve

If it fills with water and starts the cycle and the water keeps running in then your water inlet valve on the back where the water supply comes in is sticking. It needs replacing.

Lg tromm front loader will tumble but wont spin

Open the access door at the bottom left corner of your washer. Use the small hose there to drain the remaining water from the machine. Un-screw the big knob next to it and pull out the attached filter. Clean out the filter and re-install. If the filter was clear, replace drain pump motor.

My LG washer shoes OE and I don't know what to do??

If I'm not mistaken this is a drain issue so check to make sure nothing has your drain hose kinked or clogged. There is also a drain filter that you need to check and clean if needed. There is a small door cover on the bottom fron of the washer. First pull the tube out a little and hold it over a container then remove the cap. This will drain the pump and when no more water comes out you can remove the drain filter by turning the cap thats next to the tube you just drained. Sometimes there is still a little water left so you may have to clean up a little but not much. Clean the filter if needed and you can also look in the pipe to see if any debris was left in the pipe. Place everything back and this should get you back to doing more laundry.

F33 fault ineed a schematic

An F33 code = check pump. Usually coinds or gunk get into the pump and the impeller stops turning. Open the front and remove the filter sump. Clean it out and look for debris in the pump. Yu can also get this code if the small vacuum looking line that connects to the water level presure switch is clogged. Slide off the small tube from the presure switch and see if you can orally pass air through the hose. If not clean in the area where it connects to the bottom of the unit.

If you clean the sump / pump and your sure that air passes through the small tube the washer should work normally again.

Drainage blocked indicator. Have checked all hoses and the house drain pipe

You may have to also check the pump filter. Access is via a small door at floor level. Carefully unscrew the 'plug' inside and clean the filter..Also nake sure the impeller isn't jammed with a coin. You may be able to drain with a small tube which some machines have. This would be next to the "plug"...Good luck.....Nomess

I'm unfamiliar with your exact machine, but on many other similar quality brands it's used to drain the machine in a controlled fashion before unscrewing the filter.

Without it, as soon as the filter is unscrewed the remaining water in the machine will gush out. The tubes fitted to most machines have a simple plastic bung on the end which must be removed to drain and replaced afterwards and the tube is normally long enough to be pulled out to enable drainage into a tray or bowl.

Have a towel handy as even after using the tube to drain down there will always be a small amount of sump water spillage when the filter is removed.
