Re: Strainer for drain pump

There is no filter that goes over the strainer. The strainer is just to catch coins and such that would lock up the pump.

How do I get to the pump to clean it on my Kenmore he5 washer

Remove the bottom panel in the front or toe kick area. It's 2 or 3 small screws and lifts up. You may have to tilt the machine back to remove it. The pump and strainer are accessible there. The strainer cap screws off, put a catch tray under it because up to quart of water can drain there. Clean the strainer of debris before replacing pump.

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.

What is a ld error code? It will not spin when it is supposed to spin fast. This is the error code that comes up.

LD is the error when it takes longer than 5 minutes to drain the water out and reset the sensor. Press pause/cancel twice to clear. The washer will begin a slow spin, and when the motor allows, increase the spin speed towards the spin speed selected. Depending on the model, it will make several attempts, each time pulling water off of the load at the slower speed. If it cannot "get permission" to increase to it's selected speed within the allotted tome, it ends the cycle and the error code "LD" is displayed. Usually two common things can contribute to the DL alarm. One is the strainer, and the other is the drain line. The strainer is in line between the drum and the pump. On a front loader, it is behind the kick panel below the front main panel. It is connected to the drum with a rubber hose and strains the water going to the pump. Clean the strainer, and, while it is open, look inti the pump cavity. Remove any debris that you find there. Reassemble the strainer.
Anything that gets by the strainer and pump will eventually pass through the drain line and on out through the house drain. Empty the drain hose into a bucket to help displace any sediment and debris in the line. If possible, run an empty cycle with the drain hose pointed outside.
Best regards, --W/D--

Does a maytag model mah2400a have a drain filter i have a sour smell an have tried vinager bleech and baking soda nothing has worked any suggestions

It has a strainer. These strainers are evidently designed to make washers stink. Your strainer is located behind the kick panel, below the main panel. The strainer is located between the drum and the pump. It is connected to the drum with a rubber hose. Unplug your washer. Pull and clean the strainer, While the strainer is open, look up into the pump suction cavity and remove any loose debris that you see in there. Reassemble the strainer, replace the kick panel.
Clean the door seal face with a bleachy water solution, let it sit, and wipe it down again. You want to get the solution into the grooves behind the seal face, and wherever you think mold and mildew might be on/in/behind the bellows seal.
Put one cup of bleach directly into the washer tub.
Fill all of the dispenser cups with bleach.
Run the washer on your hottest setting (no clothes). I use the sanitary setting with an extended wash.
When the cycle is finished, run another cycle with nothing in the dispenser cups or tub, Just plain hot water, this will flush out the bleach residue. Most folks wipe their bellows seal face and grooves down with bleachy water regularly. (1X / wk).
Hope this helps. Best regards, --W/D--

Does not pump out water


There are two things that you can do that will help:
1. Clean your strainer. It is located between the drum and the pump, very low in the washer. If yours is a front loader, it's behind the kick panel and is located between the drum and the pump. The strainer is connected to the drum with a rubber hose. Unscrew the strainer, and clean it (caution, water!). Look up into the pump and remove any debris that has made it past the strainer.
2. Dump the contents of your drain hose (the one that goes to the wall drain) into a bucket. If possible, run an empty load with your hose pointed outside.

Press stop, cancel twice to reset. The Ld error is when it takes longer than 5 minutes for the washer to drain and reset the sensor. You probably have a partially plugged strainer or drain line. To check the strainer, remove the kick panel at the front bottom of the machine. The strainer is ibetween the drum and the pump, being connected to the drum with a rubber hose. Open the strainer (caution, water!), and clean. If you did not find much in the strainer, clean the drain hose. Dump the contents of the drain hose into a bucket. If possible, run an empty losd with dth drain line pointed outside.
This should fix your issue!

F02 with good pump and clear filter... now what?

"F02" is a Long Drain error. If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes this error code will be displayed. In addition, a "SUDS" error may also be generated as a secondary error. This is an indication of a drain pump problem and/or clog in the drain line. You will need to check the following:

1. Check the drain hose to make sure it is not kinked or clogged.
2. Check the electrical connections to the pump and ensure the pump is running.
3. Remove the drain pump filter and check for foreign objects and/or debris.

To check the drain pump, click on the following link for step-by-step instructions.

If the above procedures do not correct the problem, it is recommended by the manufacturer to replace the drain pump

Cloths still smell after a wash

Try to clean the strainer. Without knowing more about your washer, it is difficult to give you exact information so bear with me. If it is a top loader, there may be a strainer/filter inside the agitator cone. Pull out the softener dispenser, and clean the strainer beneath it. If it is a front loader, there is usually a strainer just before the pump. This is usually found by removing the lower kick panel and opening a screwed lid just before the pump. Caution here though, there will be water. It is also best to perform this with the washer unplugged. Once you have located and cleaned your strainer, run an empty load on your hottest setting with bleach, followed by another empty load on your hottest setting with just water. Hopefully, this will get your wash smelling better!

GE Front load washer WCHVH 6260F

I had the same problem.....The start/pause button would flash during a cycle and the washer would not finish the cycle. After reading on this forum that there is a filter/strainer inline with the drain, I tried this solution.
Remove the (3) screws that hold the lower front panel (Just below the door)
Once the panel is removed, you should see a white plastic strainer hooked to the washer drain.

Please a large bowl under the opening and unscrew the knob/handle, pull the filter/strainer out and clean all of the lint/trash out of this area.

My filter/strainer was clogged with a baby sock, 2 doilies, a fewe pennies, 2 dimes and lot's of lint.
I believe all of this debris was causing musty odors in the machine as the lint would stink due to dampness.

Once I cleared out this filter/strainer the problem and my odors went away
I wish GE would add this "EASY" step into the owners manual for proper care and maintenace.

Thank you for letting me know about this filter/strainer as it did resolve my problem

Washer will not pump out water and have cleaned the strainer


Depending on the specific model of your washer, probable culprit for "No Drain" with the strainer (filter) clean are:
  • stuck/defective drain valve;
  • defective drain pump/impeller;
  • kinks in or clog drain hose.
Please visually inspect/clean (and replace if needed) the above mentioned components.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
