Is there a filter on this model


Of course. The filter is located in the pump behind 'front' bottom panel. Disconnect power, remove the three screws attaching the lower front access panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and off the cabinet. You can prop up the bottom front edge of the washer or cushion and lean it against the wall to access and remove the screws more easily. Once the panel is off, remove the filter by turning the knob counterclockwise. Be prepared for a lot of water, catch it in something to prevent more work. Clean the filter from any debris that prevents water from draining out properly. Front loaders hv filters, top loaders don't. Don't forget to click that you are helped!

Why my frigidaire top loader wont spin?


Hi - Does the drain pump make a humming noise? If so, there may be a restriction in the drain line or siphoning. Otherwise since it is such a complex unit I would recommend contacting a professional to have either the pump or timer diagnose.

My Duet front loader.. once it starts washing it stops and an error f2 code comes up and it will not complete the washer the clothes are left wet. if i move to spin only it still wont same code comes up


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F2 is a drain error in your washer, if the unit is unable to drain then after 4 minutes it will display suds and then F2. The first thing that should be done is cleaning the drain hose and the drain pump filter, you can take out three torx screws from the bottom front panel and then clean the area completely, lift up the cap to clean the filter. If the error returns then check the drain pump if it is not working then replacing the pump is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Lg tromm front loader will tumble but wont spin


Open the access door at the bottom left corner of your washer. Use the small hose there to drain the remaining water from the machine. Un-screw the big knob next to it and pull out the attached filter. Clean out the filter and re-install. If the filter was clear, replace drain pump motor.

Water is not pumping out of my fisher and paykel top loader


Hi
If the washer is not draining then it is due to a clogged drain pump or a drain filter or a kinked drain hose. To resolve the issue you'll need to clean the drain hose, inspect if the drain hose is plugged. If the hose is fine, then remove the front kick panel and access the drain pump and filter, if you are unable to find the pump and filter remove the back panel as well and trace the drain hose to the bottom of the tub. There is a drain filter connected with the drain pump. It usually gets clogged, and needs to be cleaned every 6-8 months or so. The drain filter is a small white filter connected to drain pump with a hose. If it still doesn't work then you'll need to check the connections of the drain pump, check the electrical connections with a multimeter. If it still doesn't work then you would need to replace the drain pump. Please revert for any further assistance.
Hope this helps...

put a cake pan under the lip of the drain and unscrew the filter to take out the stinky water. Once it won't unscrew anymore pull the filter out and clean. OR PULL THE ENTIRE PUMP OUT TO PERFORM A INSPECTION OF THE PUMP

Plug off the mains. You have to look for screws below the front kick-panel, the panel comes down & out. The pump is on the right side. Be prepared for dirty water. There is a drain hose here, disconnect & drain out. There could be a lot of water. Inside the big flexible tube (coming from the tub bottom) is the filter, be prepared to find all sorts of junk here, clean out. Examine your pump also, clean out the impeller. Carefully refit all. Your machine would be fine. Don’t wait for the machine to jam to look into your filter.
For some front loader models after removing the bottom toe panel, the filter is in the compartment having the white screw able lid. The big hose from the bottom of your tub leads to this compartment.

You could also check the exit hose of the washer for blocks. Next snake out your wall drain, it helps.

Frigidair front load washer won't drain during spin cycle


The main reason these units wont drain is because the drain pump is plugged. Remove the front access panel at the bottom the pump is located on the right hand side at the front. Get rid of water in unit with a shop vac, disconnect wires from pump remove hoses clean out pump and rubber hose to the tub reassemble and try. good luck

The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and other stuff. Lift washer up a bit. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 screws. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big plastic bag to collect water or a wet vac. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in.
