You'll need to lay out a towel and remove the drain hoses from the pump.

Where is the filter in my wirlpool washing machine model no. wfs1072aw and how do I clean it

Hello, Erica.

Your washing machine's filter is located behind the kickpanel (or, 'plinth', as they call it in Oz) underneath the door. First, unplug the machine (or otherwise disconnect it from electricity. To remove this panel, grasp it on both sides and press downward and tilt it forward.

The filter is to be opened slowly as water will come out. Tucking a towel underneath the drain may help. The filter unscrews counter-clockwise. When you get it open, check that the pump is spinning freely. Also, if your machine is not draining, a coin or something small may be blocking the drain pipe (a US quarter or Australian fifty cent piece is a perfect fit to totally block the pipe).

When you are done, add 1 quart (liter) of water to the detergent dispenser.

You can read all of the instructions for this (on page 11 of the .pdf download) here:

Enter your model number in the box.

Good luck from Detroit, MI, USA.

Washer not entering rinse cycle tube in front near filter won't drain water no kinks in hose

You may have to remove and clean out your drain filter located inside the cabinet between the bottome of the drum and the pump motor. Make sure you hand bail the water out of your drum prior to removing the drain filter. Your model may have a shut-off valve between the drain filter and the tub, if so turn it to the OFF position to stop the water flow. If you do have this shut-off valve you will not have to hand bail the water out of your tub. After you remove, clean and reinstall the drain filter, be sure to turn the valve back to the ON position.

Water is pouring out of my dispenser drawer

I have read other folks say that this has happened to them when a sock or wash cloth gets stuck behind the rubber seal of the door. There is a pipe that drains the water from your detergent tray and it may be clogged with a sock. Try feeling around behind the rubber seal in proximity to the detergent tray and see if there is a piece of clothing stuck in the pipe that drains the detergent tray. Also remove the tray and check the pipe from that end too.

There is something in between the drum and housing. We have drained the washer and cleaned the filter still it is still there.

it seems like the drum will have to be removed to get to the offending object. it is probably stuck between the seal and drum, like a coin.
