SOURCE: How do i clean a filter of a whirlpool awm 5080 front loader

If you are talking about the drain pump strainer, you need to remove the lower front panel. should be 3 screws on the bottom facing forward. Once you have that off, the pump strainer is almost in the center, facing you. unscrew it counterclockwise to remove.

How do i remove coins from pump

f you know they are in the pump, you also know where the pump is. Now some machines have a simple clip or clamp arrangement to access the impeller. Others have to have a few screws removed. Either way it is a simple matter to fix must disconnect the power cord from the socket while you are under the covers!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Remember, water and power and stupidity do not mix well.
Just remember the reverse sequence to put it back together. Do make sure that the coins are not caught in the filter. Some front loaders have a strange access to the filter under a flap in the drum.
If this is working as it should, the coins should not get to the pump. If the filter is broken, get a new one.

Repair manual

Good Afternoon Brenda - Generally speaking, washer machines do not have a filter. Depending on your particular model the unit may have a coin trap. Below are some basic troubleshooting steps you may wish to follow to locate and clean the coin trap:
  • Unplug the unit.
  • Remove the bottom front access panel. There are two screws one on right and one on the left towards the bottom of the front panel.
  • Now that the panel is removed look inside on the bottom right hand side there is a black looking accordion thing. This is the coin trap.
  • Clean the drum out with as much water as possible that you can remove and have towels ready. The next step you will have the remaining water come out of the bottom of the drum and onto the floor.
  • At the top of the coin trap where it is attached to the drum is a silver spring with a silver screw. Loosen the screw and wiggle the coin trap down from the drum.
  • Reach inside the coin trap and clean what is inside of it out.
  • Put the unit back together following the same steps backwards.
Hope this information proves to be helpful!

Coins in drain pump on washing machine. Coins can be seen through plastic drum of washer, how do i get them out/

Without your model number this is a stab in the dark.. for a front loading HE machine. Look at the lower panel of the washer. It should have 2 tabs that you can relase with a putty or butter knife. Open the panel... then locate the white or black flat faced filter. Rotate the filter 90 Deg CCW.... knowing full well this is going to make a water mess. Be prepaired.... cake pan works great! Then pull the filter out and remove the coins. Make sure your reach back inside with your fingers to ensure there is noting on the pump impeller blades. Once clean... reinstall the filter by pressing it straight in.. then thruning it 90 deg clockwise to LOCK it in place. Leak test!!!!!! Close panel and use normally.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Coin is stuck

Does it become quiet for awhile after the coin is removed? I can't imagine how a coin lying in the bottom is making any kind of noise. There is no way for a coin to be trapped on the outside of the drum. It might, if it got past the lint filter and worked it's way into the blower housing, make an occasional 'clink'. Does the lint filter have any sizable holes in it? Do what these techs have done and see what you find.

Water come out from the machine when washing. I have opened the tube behind and found coins

The coins could be useful. Find out where your filter is and clean out thoroughly. Users manual? The filter requires periodic cleaning.
