SOURCE: Bosch washing machine leaks at right bottom

The part that you removed, was the pump filter, the pump is located behind the filter, possibly, the pump itself is leaking, or the filter cover is not fastened in tight enough, pr the filter seal is defective, if after tightening, it still leaks, suggest you replace the pump.
Please rate my solution.

SOURCE: How to locate and clean the lint trap

Top load washing machines do have lint filters, they used older models have trays that sit on top of the agitator. Newer ones aren't as obvious and are attached to the bottom of the inner tub. If you remove the agitator, you'll see a bunch of holes in the bottom of the tub, the filter right behind these holes. Cleaning/replacing it involves removing the inner tub, so it's not an easy task. It is likely that by the time you're having problems with the filter, it will be beyond cleaning and will need to be replaced. Considering all the trouble it takes to get to, you might as well.

How do I fix a drain error on my LG front load washer?

Hello. I\'ve had 3 drain errors on 2 LG washers. 1 was a clogged filter. The other two were failed drain pumps. The drain filter is behind the little plastic door on the lower left corner of the front of the washer. Pop the door off with a flathead screwdriver, and unscrew the gray knob behind it. WARNING: All of the water in the tub WILL come gushing out when you do this. Have something ready to soak it up. Expect several gallons of smelly water and prepare accordingly. Once the knob is unscrewed you can pull the filter out. If you are lucky, you\'ll find it stuffed with the most disgusting detritus on earth. If you are unlucky, you need a new drain pump. Suspect this if your pump sounds like a box of broken rocks or if it makes no sound at all. The drain pump is located inside the washer near the place where you pulled the drain filter. For both of the failures I\'ve seen the plastic impeller on the pump has failed and spins freely on the shaft. I got the replacement parts from RepairClinic. To change the pump I pulled the (now drained) washer away from the wall and leaned it backwards so I could work from underneath. Don\'t drop it on your hands or brain. I seem to recall that the only tools required were a phillips head screwdriver, pliers for the hose clamps, and band-aids for the sharp metal edges. Best of luck.

After every wash the lent stays on the clothes

here are a few suggestions Two things that come to mind...1) Your wash time is too long. Unlike front loaders, top loaders clean quickly. No need to use the longest wash setting unless the item is really dirty.
2) You are overloading the machine. Items should move freely and circulate from top-to-bottom several times during the wash.
3) try using more detergent, One of the things good detergent does is keep lint (and dirt) suspended in the water and off your clothes. 4)

Does this machine have a lint filter? I am getting bits of yuk on my washing after the wash is finished

No lint filter. The tumbling wash action generates very little lint, which washes down the drain.

To get rid of the "yuk":

Open the access panel on the lower left corner on front of the washer.
Use small hose to drain the remaining water from machine.
Remove the pump filter next to the hose, clean it out, and replace it.
Run the washer with a commercial washer cleaner such as Affresh, washer magic, or whirlaway hot tub cleaner, no clothes, hottest longest cycle possible. Use the tub clean cycle if your model has it.
Resume washing, using one tablespoon of HE detergent per cycle. Use only 1 teaspoon of fabric softener if you use that. These machines use much less water than the old top loader ones, and thus you must use much less detergent.

Washing machine won't drian water

Take the hose off the back and place it in a bucket

If the water gushes out you either have a coin or a grip stuck in the pump , take out the lint trap and try to dislodge it

If the water trickles you have a small item of clothing in the hose leading to the pump, that means letting the water out using the bucket method then removing the hose from the outer tub to the pump

LE error code

The LE error code can be an indication of several different issues. The most common cause is over-sudsing in the machine. Overloading the wash with too much laundry may also cause the LE error code. Lastly, a breakdown in the signal between the microprocessor and the motor may cause that error code. This can occur if there is a loose wire or a dislodged ball sensor. Good luck!

Lg Front loading washing machine

most times on the Lg washer the lint trap is clogged and something may be hitting the impeller on the pump and causing it not to drain. remove the plastic cover on the lower left bottom and unscrew the black lint filter at the pump. you will get water on the floor there is no way to avoid that. clean the trap and make sure there is nothing inside the housing to block the pump impeller. replace the trap and run a rince cycle to check for proper draining.
