To maintain your front loader washing machine in good working order and to avoid having a service call there are a few simple maintenance tasks to carry out.

1. Every time you carry out a wash before you switch on the unit you should check the door seal for any foreign particles like coins or hair clips and remove them. If they stay there they can then get past the seal and clog up the fluff filter and drain pump which stops the unit from draining.

2. It is also a good idea to wipe the door seal occasionally

3. There is a fluff filter on the front of the unit in the bottom left or right hand corner behind the service flap.
Have a small tray, like a baking tray underneath it and open the flap with some sort of flat lever,coin or screw driver. Turn the tap about 1/4 of a turn and collect about a litre of water from the unit. When it has stopped draining unscrew the tap all the way out and clean the fluff filter which is the tap in your hand.

Also have a look in the hole and you will see the drain pump at the back. Make sure this is free of any foreign particles and can turn. Then re-screw the tap back making sure it is tight.

This should be done regularly every 2-3 months to avoid the unit from not draining.

4. Running a cottons 95c wash every 2-3 months kills off any bacteria build up, and cleans out any excess detergent build up. It also stops the unit from smelling.
You can also use a special washing machine cleaner or just white vinegar as a cleaning agent in the detergent tray to help.

5. After every wash keep the door open for about 30 mins to let it dry out as shutting the door is then a perfect environment for bacteria to develop and the door seal to go mouldy and also causing the unit to smell.

6. Lastly take care when removing clothes as zips can catch on the rubber door seal and tear it. This will then leak water at the bottom of the door.


Hope this helps.

Where is the pump filter on an lg washer?


The PRIMARY filter for discharged water in most front loaders is located under the opening of the washer behind a small 'door'. There is usually a small tube which you will need to pull the plug from and drain about 2 cups of water into a bucket BEFORE you remove the filter to clean it.
After you unscrew the filter which is mounted from front-to-back and clean it out, replace both filter piece and plug and replace the small drain tube.
Close the access door and operate your machine.
* Clean this filter every month or especially after washing heavy lint-producing materials.

How do I remove cooling grille on my WTE86300BY/02? I don't want to break it. I regularly clean air cooler with warm water, taking it out through the maintenance flap. But I can see that inside the...


I had the same problem on a WTE8630SGB. There are six plastic insert/clips and I removed the grille panel by lying the machine on its back to get to the underside. Each plastic clip has three fingers and the middle one rotates to release - you are is supposed to be able to press the middle fingers one's lever arm - but it invariably breaks off before rotating enough to release - so i used a very fine screwdriver to prise the middle finger away from its release. One still snapped as the plastic is so brittle. Prise or rotate the bottom three and the top three hinge away. In my my 4 yr old machine there a little fluff build up on the impeller centre and on the (rather strange) cowl lining but on balance don't think it was worth the trouble of removing the grille!
Have fun

Hi my washing machine starts but afta 5-10 minutes it keeps tellin me to clean pump... how do i do that and where is the pump?


Try cleaning the filter first. The filter is behind a flap on the lower part of the front panel of the machine. The flap is normally opened by pushing at one side - then unscrew the cap that is behind the flap and withdraw the filter. Clean it thoroughly and replace.
If this does not work you will need to remove and clean the pump itself, which is accessed from beneath the machine, but this is a more major job.

Lg tromm front load leeks water from somewhere around bottom of mach.


You most likely need to clean your pump filter and the drain hose next to it. Both are located on the lower left section of the washer's front side. There is a door (cover cap) you need to simply pull open to gain access to the two items I mentioned. The cleaning process is available in your owner's manual - in the maintenance section.

How do i clean my miele coffee system cva 4070?


I have a cva4075 so this may not be exactly the same, but on the 4075 you open the front of the machine and pull out the left hand plastic container on the top. Underneath on the right hand side you will see a small flap. On the bottom side of the flap is a red triangle sign. That flap is the top of the funnel for the ground coffee. You drop the cleaning tablet into this funnel.

For the people who need clearer information as I did. The toner waste compartment is on the bottom left of the left hand side of the machine. It is to the left of the middle bottom panel which has two small ventholes in it.

Once you open the panel you will see a large plastic bottle which simply pulls out. Empty this and make sure the neck and all areas around the neck are clean. Then place the bottle back in and close up the machine. Done
