the lint filter is a large plastic part that is conected to the bottom of the tub. you have to take the tub out to clean the lint filter. i would suggest, before you try taking the tub out, going to sears,they seel a product called washer magic. its a cleaning powder for your washer. just follow the instructions on the jug it comes it. it works pretty good

It leaksYour washer can develop several types of leaks. You can track down a leak based on when it occurs:
During fill only
During drain and spin only
All the time
During fill only
If the washer leaks only during the fill cycle, check these:
Air-gap device -The air gap is a small device found on most washers that prevents the wash water from being siphoned into the household water supply. It's located either mid-way along or at the end of the black rubber hose that comes from the water-inlet valve. Often it's made of translucent plastic. If one of the air-gap components deforms or cracks, you may need to replace it.
The tube -There's a rubber tube that runs between the water-inlet valve and either the air-gap or the inlet spout. If it cracks or breaks, it can cause a leak.
Inlet spout -Most washers have a plastic spout near the top of the main clothes tub that directs the water into the tub. If the spout cracks or breaks free of its mounting, it can cause a leak.
During drain and spin only
A washer that leaks only during the spin cycle often has a leak in the main drain hose. Inspect the entire hose and correct any problem you find. Alternatively, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. This may be most visible during large loads and high water levels. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.
All the time
If the washer leaks all the time, check these:
Hot and cold water fill hoses - Check the hot and cold water hoses from the household plumbing. If either hose is leaking, tighten it or replace it, as appropriate.
Main tub seal - The main tub seal is located between the transmission and the outer tub. It's the primary water seal in the outer tub for the transmission-shaft entry point. If this seal leaks, you can see the leak by opening up the machine's main access panel while the machine is full of water with a small amount of detergent in it. The leak appears at the underside of the outer tub, at or near the center. This seal is difficult to replace. You probably should call a qualified appliance repair technician.
Pump - If the pump leaks, you can probably spot the leak when the tub is full of water. The pump has two or more black rubber or plastic hoses attached to it and usually has a drive belt that spins the pump. If the pump is leaking, you need to replace it.
Outer tub - Over time, the steel or plastic outer tubs can rust, split, or be punctured. If this happens, you may have to replace the entire outer tub--but that may not be an economical repair to make. Consult a qualified appliance repair technician for further details.

SOURCE: intuitive washer code 43
Thx to fixya l sovled my code 43 by removing and cleaning my balance control switch. If anyone needs to know here step by step
1 Make sure the plug is out ( dont want curly hair do you )
2 Remove 2 screws from back of control panel and lift off
3 Remove 1 screw holding grey module panel
4 Under grey module on right hand side is the balance control switch with 1 white and 1 yellow set of wires
5 remove wires ( make note on where they plug back into )
6 2 small clips hold the switch in place, open them gently and pull switch out
Its that simple , clean the contacts with some wd40 or bicarb soda in hot water to get rid of any corrosion, make sure that the little button on the side springs out freely ( tiny drop of oil/wd40 ) clean or replace plugs on the white / yellow wires. install and do that washing!!! It worked for me but if the switch is too far gone no need for a service man just get a new one and go for it .
Good luck Pieman

it might refer to any blockage in the water supply. So cleaning the pump could primarily resolve this. but it might also be a blockage in the soap tray (when available), the tap or the hose attached to the tap or the air-gap or any water control structure. but most of the times, it is simple blockage of pump. just pull out the manual, remove, clean and replace the pump. this will solve your problem.

Thank you for your post, friend!
Based off the information you have provided your Electrolux washer is displaying multiple issues. This sounds like a faulty control panel. You may need to disassemble your washer and test each electrical component for a proper diagnosis. This is not a simple DIY job and I would recommend seeking assistance from a professional technician for proper repairs. This will help you avoid any future issues. Hopefully this is helpful. -Matt

Hey friend, thanks for your post!
From the information you have provided your Electrolux washer is not starting. This could be a possible issue with your control panel or door latch. If your door is not communicating that it is closed then the washer will not start. Is your washer displaying any information or error codes? If you can provide any additional information I will be able to assist you further. -Matt
