Question about Washing Machines
The above machine is leaving lint on clothes. I have stripped it down and the plastic drum outer is filthy and looking at the user manual I assume the 'Magic Clean" lint filter is blocked up. Nothing is stuck in the impeller or hoses. My attempted solution will be to take out the metal drum and give it a good clean out. Agitator is out and top & sides are off. There is a large circular looks like a locking ring which I can't budge. I have even made up a tool to try and undo it. The machine is 9 yrs old. Is there some trick to get the drum out or is the locking ring just frozen on requiring a heap of CRC? Please Help.
Hi Viral, The lint filter is in the door. It should just lift out. Or cut & paste this link for instruction manual for your machines. http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%203406876.pdf Regards

SOURCE: Maytag Washer: How to Remove Tub
Under the agitator is a flat nut with notches in it. this nut requires a spanner wrench that will fit into the notches. You can use a large channel lock plier. rotate the nut counter-clockwise. under the nut will be a seal. remove the nut and the seal and pull up on the inner tub. to replace you'll need to replace the seal. if the nut isn't too chopped up, use this to refasten the tub.

here's the part number for the replacement 8182233, thinking it may come as a 3 pack , if they're not broken no need to replace. but the new one will simply slide in and with a click forward lock into place. they also come shipped with a screw to secure. in order to install screw you'll need to remove the top of the washer(3 screws across the back of the top assy and slides back and off. then you'll see the top of the tub area, a small black hose will run from the white box to the left to directly top of the tub assy. remove ethe hose from the tub and spin the inner drum to the correct position, they screw hole will line up through the opening, re-secure the hose to the tub and your in!

Fisher & Paykel washers do not have lint filters inside the tubs as they are designed to drain away any debris from the wash during the drain cycle.

Clean the washing machine lint trap if your washer has one if not buy a washing machine lint trap at a place like home depot.
