SOURCE: LInt filter

Find you owners manual, it should say how to clean the button trap on your pump

Unplug the machine FIRST!

Get some towels, you will have water coming out.

if the tub is full of water you will need to bale it out!

Remove the lower front panel, usually two screws,

look for the pump it will have hoses on it. now lay some towels around, expect water.

Unscrew the end of the pump, if it has a button trap or lint filter.
it will be on or near the pump refer to your owners manual

If you dont have an owners manual you may find it at Samsung.com?

SOURCE: I know it has a self cleaning filter, but.......

not a true filter on machine ..if you have odor issue try filling tub ith hot water pour in 2 cups chlorine bleach allow to mix and then let set approx 30-45 min aloow to finish cycle this will also help clean any residue from outer plastic tub that may be coming back off onto clothes by the way what passes for a filter may be 4 small washers under agitator or at best a plastic piece with lots of teeth under inner basket on bottom good luck

SOURCE: Lint on dark clothes

no product i know of , try running machine without cloths with hot water and a lot of extra soap the unrestricted water movement and extra soap lubricates and helps to flush machine out, let machine dishcharge into bucket and if poor flow or lots of debris run again and see if this clears up you issue

Dryer not heating checked heater it is ok what else can i check


Make sure lint filter is clean - all the way through the components from where it leaves the drum until ir exits the conduit to the outside of the house. Many times the lint build up can block the air flow and keep the unit from functioning efficiently. This is probably true more in humid climates but I have had this happen in the Las Vegas desert as well.

Lint on cloths after wash is there a lint filter in the washer and where do i find the lint filter


There is a fine screen on the bottom of the inner tub under the agitator. It is self cleaning every time it spins out. If you use too much fabric softener, the screen can get clogged. Fabric softener is hard to clean off and the screen is pretty delicate.

GE top load washer w/no lint trap leaves excessive lint


Most US-sold washers made after the mid 1980s don't have lint filters. The manufacturers weasel-word around it by saying that the lint "goes down the drain", leading people to optimistically assume that there is a self-cleaning filter in there somewhere. There usually isn't and whatever lint doesn't go down the drain is filtered by your cloths (but whatever does might clog your septic system). As a result of this scam, it's much harder to hang-dry or iron-dry clothes that haven't been hand washed. And, if you think spending $2000 on a pair of matched "front-load" style machines will solve this, you might be wrong; many of those washers still have no lint filter.

Increased drying time; removal of lint behind tumbler ???


I have a top loading Kenmore High capacity dryer that is over 10 years old, it has been working very well, unfortunately when cleaning the lint filter my wife dropped a piece of paper down the lint duct hole. The paper evidently fell to the bottom of the lint duct. I am unable to reach the paper from the top of the dryer where the lint filter is inserted.The dryer now makes a grinding type noise when it is turned on. Can you tell me how to reach the paper and remove it

Washing machine lint


fluffed up,

If you have a manual filter..make sure it's clean. If you do, and it is, the tub drain could be blocked.( it is under the agitator and basket, requires disassembly) If you don't have a manual filter, the self-cleaning filter/ trap could be clogged.(it is underneath, also requires some disassembly. If you have tools and feel comfortable with things mechanical, get a repair manual from the library, maybe you can tackle the fix.

hope this helps,
