Maytag MAH2400A Will not drain

I am sure the pump strainer is plugged. How do I get the front cover off to gain access to the pump. There is a little access door at the bottom that covers a galvanized sheet metal plate with a small whole in front of the pump. How do I either remove the galvanized sheet metal piece, or remove the front cover? I have removed the screws holding the cover in place (with the door) and it is loose, but I cannot it get it free of the plastic control panel.

Location of airbag sensors

Are you talking about impact sensors? Two are located on front right and left frame support. They are accessible from the bottom but its easier to take the bumper off to gain easy access to them. Another two are locates on bottom of B pillar around the area where the driver and passenger seatbelt tensioners are. You have to remove the door seals and plastic cover of the B pillar to gain access to them. Last two are mounted below C pillar behind the seat back cover. You have to remove cushion and back piece to gain access to them. Some people say there are versions without the sensors under C pillar tho, but I worked on one that had those sensors.

I have three possibles: The car diesd on me with plenty of fuel,new battery and clean posts. Fuel filter has never been changed to my knowledge. How do remove the rear seat to access the fuel pump(...

there are more possible reasons for a no start than you have listed, but we will go with this, as I am sure you have your reasons...the bench bottom seat just lifts off after you push the front-bottom back (hard) on each side and lift-once you remove the bottom, you remove the carpet to gain access to the cutout (covered) door for the fuel pump.. It has a large plastic ring that holds the assembly in place in the gas tank, you use a large flat bladed object and tap the ring, counterclockwise, untill the ring is off-then, remove the hoses, harness and any other attachments, and gently remove the fuel pump and sender unit from the tank.

I have an f3 and f4 error code on asko washing machine front loader. i know what the error codes are just dont know where they are anyone can help I need it thanks

F3 indicates a problem with the drain pump. At the bottom left of the machine, theres a square cut-out. This is where the drain pump is located. Using a flat head screwdriver or similar object, insert in opening on right side and gently pry open the drain pump cover.
Once the cover has been opened, be careful when opening the drain pump, as there is always a little water left in the drain pump. Before you open the drain pump, place a small container on the floor below the drain to catch the water. Pull the small black hose from the door and let the water drain into the container. You can now open the drain pump to clean it out. Also clean the pump rotor at the back of the pump housing. Replace the drain cover and reconnect the drain hose securely back to its position on the door. Close the cover.

F4 indicates a problem with the water inlet valve. Make sure the water supply is fully turned on. If no water enters the machine, then turn water supply off. Disconnect the hoses from the water inlet valve to see if the strainer in the inlet connection is blocked. Reconnect the hoses and turn on water supply. Hopefully this solves your problem.

Our frigidaire Galley front loader washer has an odor all the time even after washing in hot water...any suggestions?

Most odor problems can be traced to mildew or mold in the creases and folds of the bellows seal and the pump strainer. This is the seal that you see when the door is opened and connects to the drum.
There are chemicals available that can be placed in the washer. I've seen them advertised on YouTube (type in smelly washer), but I cannot vouch for them.
Some people report that they have been advised to leave the door open when the washer is not in use, and I've seen others recommend Tilex.
What works best, in my opinion is a thorough cleaning, including the strainer. Here's how:
Gain access to the strainer. It is located behind the front panel, at the bottom. The strainer is in-line between the drum and the pump, and is connected to the drum with a rubber hose. Open and clean the strainer. Look up into the pump cavity and remove/kill any debris in there as well. Reassemble the strainer, putting a spray of silicone on the "O" ring and threads. Wipe down the bellows seal with a solution of bleach and soapy water, getting all of the grooves and nooks wetted. Let it sit for 5 minutes, and wipe it again. Pour 1 cup of bleach in the washer. Fill the dispensers (detergent, bleach and softener) with bleach. Run a "sanitary" extended cycle with the hottest water on the wash cycle and rinse cycle. When this cycle is completed, run another cycle to flush all bleach residue out. Clean the seal with the bleach/soapy water 1X/week, or as your nose tells you.
Hope that you have found this to be helpful.
Best regards, --W/D--

Lg tromm front load leeks water from somewhere around bottom of mach.

You most likely need to clean your pump filter and the drain hose next to it. Both are located on the lower left section of the washer's front side. There is a door (cover cap) you need to simply pull open to gain access to the two items I mentioned. The cleaning process is available in your owner's manual - in the maintenance section.

Zanussi IZ 12 pump access

You should not need to remove anything to check and clean pump filter.
Open the filter door at the bottom right front of washer, there you will see the pump filter cover, unscrew the filter anti-clockwise, and remove the filter, and clean same.
With the filter out, you will see the filter housing, which is fastened directly on to the pump, have a good look inside the housing, and see if anything is stuck in there.
Refit filter, and test.
Please rate my fixya solution.

I removed mine like this: Unplug the washer. There are 3 torx head screws that hold the bottom panel on. I propped the front feet of the washer up to get access. I think I am going to have to buy a new pump... mine is noisy running even apart from the housing.
