The filter is part of the pump right at the front of the machine.
Maybe the pipe waste is blocked?

CLEAN PUMP LIGHT COMES ON WHERE IS THE PUMP LOCATED


The pump is located behind front bottom panel on the right side assuming that your machine is a Whirlpool or Kenmore Front-Loader. Disconnect power and remove the three screws attaching the lower front access panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and off the cabinet. You can prop up the bottom front edge of the washer or cushion and lean it against the wall to access and remove the screws more easily.

Once the panel is off, remove the filter by turning the knob counterclockwise. Clean the filter from any debris that prevents water from draining out properly. Click on the link below for further troubleshooting should the cleaning of the filter does not resolve the problem.

Whirlpool awz3518 'Clean Filter' light is flashing


It would appear that this issue is related to a cold location, or the arctic air coming in through the vent hose.Sort of defeats the purpose of a dryer not working when its cold.

Ariston ventless dryer- "Clean Filter" light won't turn off, so dryer won't start


I had this same problem. The dryer would turn on for a few seconds and I could hear the water pump working followed by the "clean filter" light. This dryer has a float sensor which detects whether the pump is successfully getting rid of the condensed water. The only problem is that lint and other particulates condense out in the water and over time the float sensor gets stuck in the up position. The Ariston call center explained that the float sensor can trip the "Clean Filter" light.

In any case, the float sensor is located in the back of the dryer where the pump outlet tube comes out (when facing the back, it is in the lower right). I had to take apart quite a bit of the dryer to get access to the sensor. I ended up taking the near side off to release the plastic snaps that hold the cover over the sensor.

To fix the sensor, all I had to do was clean out the "bath" that the sensor floats in. And then figure out how to put it all back together.

WHIRLPOOL WASHING MACHINE AWO/D 5716 - CANNOT LOCATE PUMP


Remove the bottom casing covering the front of the machine just above the floor. Unscrew the circular cap SLOWLY- beware of vast amounts of water escaping though!
I had to use a low height roasting pan to catch water, and just unscrew the cap enough so as to control the flow of water, and enable to empty water away until its all gone. Incidentally, an old hairgrip was found to be the cause of my problem.
Confusingly, "clean pump" meant clean filter!

Unplug your machine and unclip the plastic trim panel across the bottom of the machine (front) to reveal the circular pump filter cover. Unscrew this cover with your fingers and remove any debris inside. Put the cover back on, clip the panel back on and try your machine again. Should be fine.
