SOURCE: how to clean filter -genius 2400 bagless vac?

Hi there SmartAlec from NelsonVacuums.com.au here. The best way is with an air compressor it will be dusty (like a storm) but its the only way to get into the filter. If you dont have access to an air compressor all you can do is kind of open up the grooves and use a little brush to manually brush out the dirt. It will take a while to do it properly but they run terrible if the filter is blocked. Also if you are in australia you can shoot me an email and i get you a replacement filter.
Hope this helps regards Alec.
Happy Vacuuming :)

SOURCE: washer will not drain. Need to know how to clean

The following link explains how to access and clean the drain pump reservoir on a Whirlpool Duet:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3574284-checking_the_drain_pump_on_a_front_loade

If you have any questions about this repair, or need additional assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: If these preliminary measures do not correct your problem, you may have to replace the drain pump. It does not take much to damage the pump impeller or motor. Since the error code is generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes, if the pump is damaged and can't pump at the required volume, the error code will continue to appear until the pump is replaced.

SOURCE: LG front load washer OE error. cleaned filter need

The LG error code OE simply means "the pump is blocked". Presumably the water isn't being emptied properly. As with all error codes it is possible that there is a cause other than the exact description in the error code explanation but basically this error means as far as the washing machine is concerned it thinks the water isn't pumping out. A pump, or filter blockage is the most common cause but it could be caused by other faults such as a faulty pump, or even a blockage in the drain hose or somewhere else in the system etc.


LG themselves have some information on this error code..

My washing machine sounds like it still has water in it when i spin it and it smells musty


Hi

The smell usually comes when the washer is unable to drain water completely, you can run your washer at its hottest temperature setting with 1 cup of vinegar inside the unit. After this take off the bottom front panel and clean it completely, also clean the drain hose and drain pump filter, the smell should disappear after doing all this. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Hello My Maytag black front loader washer is displaying an error code of F02. Do you know a fix for this error code? Thank you


Hello & Welcome to FixYa

F02 is a drain error in your washer, if the unit is unable to drain then after 4 minutes it will display suds and then F02. The first thing that should be done is cleaning the drain hose and the drain pump filter, you can take out three torx screws from the bottom front panel and then clean the area completely, lift up the cap to clean the filter. If the error returns then check the drain pump if it is not working then replacing the pump is recommended repair. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Hello,

follow the below procedures on how to Troubleshoot a Front Load Washer That Won't Spin or Drain;

1. Remove any kinks in the drain hose. Ensure that the washer is not sitting on the hose.

2. Inspect the household drain. Remove clogs, if possible. Call a plumber if you cannot remove the clogs.

3. Check the drain and make sure there is an air gap between the hose and drain. An air gap is necessary to prevent the drain hose from siphoning water.

4. Clean the pump filter. Open the pump access door. Turn the pump filter counter-clockwise and remove it. Remove dirt and debris. Replace the filter and close the pump access door.

5. Rearrange the clothing in the load. An unbalanced load can prevent the washer from spinning or draining.

6. Allow the washer to cool down for two hours. If the washer overheats, it will stop the motor and cool down before restarting.

7. Close the door completely. The washer will not operate if the door is not securely closed.

I hope the above helps.

Good luck.

My washer will not drain?


Hi
If the washer is not draining then it is due to a clogged drain pump or a drain filter or a kinked drain hose. To resolve the issue you'll need to clean the drain hose, inspect if the drain hose is plugged. If the hose is fine, then remove the front kick panel and access the drain pump and filter, if you are unable to find the pump and filter remove the back panel as well and trace the drain hose to the bottom of the tub. There is a drain filter connected with the drain pump. It usually gets clogged, and needs to be cleaned every 6-8 months or so. The drain filter is a small white filter connected to drain pump with a hose. If it still doesn't work then you'll need to check the connections of the drain pump, check the electrical connections with a multimeter. If it still doesn't work then you would need to replace the drain pump. Please revert for any further assistance.
Hope this helps...

Duck Feather Pillow In Washer. Feathers everywhere. door will not unlock or drain water. help


Pull off the lower front panel and reach up on the right of the washer to the door lock assembly you will feel a tab hanging down pull it and the door will release. Clean out the drain filter and pump hoses etc. Rise it out and you may have to clean the filter a few times.

Drain wont drain on a epic washer where is the drain filter located at


The drain filter is located in the pump behind front bottom panel. 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.
