Where do I find the filter

My husband in his brilliance put a rug in the washer last week that disintegrated. Now I think I'm bunged-up. Can't find the filter. Any help much appreciated. Julia

You need to take off the washer off the inside of the washing machine and clean underneath that to see if their is any rug pieces under their it could be blocking that. the thing i would do though is call a plumber he would fix it and buy a filter for about 10-15 pounds 5 pound cheaper than we can get it. he would only charge 20 pound or so but you know he'll fix it propely and it'll work

I have an LG front loading washer, Model WM2050. I washed 2 small area rugs and the backings disintegrated. I cleaned out the tub and gasket, but I am afraid to run the washer for fear I will ruin it...


If the backings disintegrated and you do not see them in the tub, you'll need to check the clean out on the unit, on the bottom-left corner, this cap will unscrew and you can pull out the clean out filter, and see. If you have tons of debris in there, you may have a nasty clog, and most likely didn't make it any further than the clean out. It may have even burned the drain motor out, and that may also need replacement.

I cleaned out the screens on the water feed, unplugged the machine for 10 or more mins., and it still flashes "ie" after numerous attempts with the spin cycle. The last expert I asked said "to turn off,...


I purchased an LG front loader washer last year in October, Luckily I purchased the extended warrenty. I had to have a repair man come out as I was stumped too. I had washed some rugs in there and it plugged up the pump. The repair man told my husband that the inlet is very small and there are lots of things that could plug the pumps up. If you are handy could tackle this but I think it is best to call someone. My husband is handy at fixing just about anything and he told me to take my rugs to the laudry mat. :(

Do not use in washer. The fact that you got away with it before is your hint NOT to do this again or else bigger problems???

Hi mommo2,
I really hate those little rubber pieces that come off of those rugs, they really gum up everything. Just for future reference try to wash those outside with a water hose and a scrub brush. It will save you lots of money in repairs.
As for your current problem try to get as much out of the tub as possible. Then you will have to remove the small kickplate on the bottom of the washer. Get you some towels and a maybe a flat pan to catch some water. The panel will have a few screws around it that will need to be removed. Once you have removed the panel you will see your pump. The front of the pump has a filter that can be unscrewed and removed for cleaning. Unscrew the filter and get ready to catch some water. Maybe as much as a couple gallons. Once you have cleaned it out put the filter back in the pump and leave the panel off. Run the washer throught another cycle and clean the pump out again. You may need to repeat this several times. Hopefully this will solve the problem, if you still have draing issues you could have a clogged drain and for that you may need a plumber. Well good luck to you and I hope I helped.

clean the debris filter usually situated at the bottom of the washing maching you will need to open the panel, you should see a rubber tube with a bung in the end you need to take the bung out in order to drain the washer, once you have drained the washer you can clean the filter by unscrewing the large black round bung. hope this helps

WILL NOT SPIN ON HIGH


The spin normally does not work when the outlet filter is clogged; if the filter is clean you should then check your pipe coming out from under the tub (plug off the wall first before doing all these things). Last check your outlet pump, could be blocked with something. Refit carefully, you might need a nice pair of pliers to get the grip clip on and off the pipes.
The outlet pipe into the wall stands at a particular height, refit exactly to this height, about 3 feet from ground
