Yes there is a filter in the drain pump. remove the lower front panel and then you will see the pump.
take off the round cover and that is the screen to the pump. with what you have said it is probably plugged with lint and other stuff.
the pump will have water in it so be ready with a towel or a pan to catch the extra water. then whe you have the screen out, clean it and it should drain and work better.
the round screen is about 3 inches in diameter with a flat "handle" on the front of it. you cant miss it so take it apart and you can fix this yourself.
good luck, but you wont need luck, just a towel. about 1/2 a gallon of water.

The wash cycle is taking a lot longer to do, for example the 30 min wash is taking 1 hour and sometimes longer, the motor seems fine, could it have something to do with the pump


Hi.

When the cycle hangs it means that because of a fault the conditions to advance are not met.

If the washer hangs at start (filling), then there is either a problem with water pressure, blocked inlet, or water flowing back from drain hose because of incorrect hose settings (called siphoning).

If machine hangs mid cycle, then it is often a temperature related problem. Check thermostat and element or check hot inlet and thermostat if dual inlet. Testing requires disassembling and use of the multimeter.

If machine hangs mid cycle or end of the cycle (before spin), then it can be drain system. Check drain hose, drain filter attached to pump and check the pressure switch.

Most machines have a service sheet hidden inside the control panel assembly. The tech sheets shows how to run a diagnostic cycle that will tell where the problem is.

Most common faults resulting in long cycle are heat-related and drain problems.

Regards.

Water will not drain completely/or at all from unit.machine cycles thru all stages, dishes seem clean but lots of water left in botton of washer.


The filter is probably blocked.


It is inside the base of the machine.


Take out the filter and clean it and also clean out the filter well as that can also hold quite a bit of debris.

How do i get all the dog hair out of maytag front loaders after i wash my clothers theres still dog hair on them & yes i clean the filters


Make sure you are using the proper amount of "HE" detergant based on our water hardness. Soil and pet hair are suspended in the wash engymes during the was cycle to be taken away during the drain cycle. Use of a non "HE" detergant will produce an over sudsing condition and soil will be suspended in the suds and redeposit on the garments and inner basket during the drain cycle. Using a lesser amount of non "HE" detergant will provide an insufficient amount of wash engymes and also give you the condition you are experiencing. Try using a combination of a granular "HE detergant added directly to the load of clothes along with a liquid fabric softner added to the dispensor. This should help you out. Of course shaking out the garments outdoors that have heavy deposits of pet hair would help as well.

Washer not draining


sorry about this problem,we get this alot your drain pump is clogged,so try this take cloths out and see if you can scoop out water.Now put rooto-roter drain opener in drum and let it sit for about 1-2hrs.Now run on heavy-duty by itself it may have to go through 2 cycles,to clear out clogg.See the drain pump is real small,so dog hair,strings,or pieces of rubber from throw rugs well clog pump.So first try this.
