On some models (KitchenAid) you lift off the spray arm and then lift the filter up. It is fastened with spring clips. On other models removing the spray arm reveals screws at the top of the filter housing that need to be removed to get the filter up. If you have the manual there will be instructions for removing the filter.

How do I clean the pump filter


HI THERE, Unplug machine for 5 minutes for a reset and try a spin /drain cycle. It is too simple but why not try. Now that your hopes of an easy fix are shot unplug machine and let the fun begin. The screen is located behind a door at the bottom of the left front of washer. Open door. Remove door. Grab a good size shallow pan and a large rag. Pull plug to drain machine. Once water is out remove screen - it is part of the round knob in that area. Some water will come with it. Clean screen. I use acid to remove build up on the screen from well water. Inspect entire area. A small dental mirror can be helpful. Junk can get caught up in impeller to pump. I had a shaft break on mine and had to replace pump about two months ago - $40,00. Remember something is stopping the water. If filter / screen was really full and you found something plugging the drain - Replace filter / screen and hose plug. Plug in to wall and try a rinse and spin.
Hint if water will not drain from hose. pull machine away from wall lean it back against wall. This will hopefully allow you to open screen filter to remove it. I had a plugged hose once. it was a pain to do. I could not tilt my machine because of space. I used a shop vac to drain filter by slowly opening the filter / screen. I was able to then with a wire remove clog from hose. If things are really bad you can tilt machine and reach up under machine and pull small drain hose. IF YOU TO REMOVE PUMP - YOU TUBE. TRY TO REMOVE IT FROM UNDERNEATH. IF YOU CANT, THE HARDEST PART IS THE TUBE GASKET SPRING. VISE GRIP NEEDLE NOSE PLIERS AND ANOTHER REGULAR NEEDLE NOSE PLIERS WORK WELL. I SECOND SET OF HANDS WITH A UNDERSTANDING MIND ARE MUCH NEEDED. IT IS JUST MACHINE - IT HAS NO SOUL- OR FEELINGS. YOU CAN SCREAM AT IT ALL DAY.

THE HARDEST PART IS THE SPRING ON

How to change a transmission screen on a 05' ford


The filter is not replaced unless an overhaul of the trans-axle is needed, It involves the removal of the trans-axle and partial disassembly to accomplish the filter replacement. That is only if trans failure is suspected, and diagnosis requires removal and inspection of the filter. The filter removal and replacement is procedure 42 out of 72 in the disassembly manual and 12 different Ford specific SST's (Special Service Tools) are needed. I did however, include the procedure for the normal drain and fill service performed at the dealer.
I hope this info helps!

0E is showing on the screen. Can you please advise what this means?


Hi

OE in your dishwasher is a drain error and dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. First make sure that the drain is not clogged and remove clogs if present. If no visible lint is present then remove the lower front access panel to check the drain filter and drain pump for any clogs, you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump completely. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller & clean the chopper assembly. If the issue returns after cleaning then the drain pump assembly should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

On a Whirlpool Duet GHW9150P Front Load Washer is there a filter near the water pump that catches stuff before it gets into the pump and causes damage?


Hi, your machine will have filters in a couple of diffierent places. First, on the inlet valves, there are screens that can be accessed by closing your water valves and removing the inlet hoses. Then you can pull the screens out. The other place where water is filtered, is the outlet pump (drain pump). That filter, or screen actually, can be accessed by removing the large metal panel below the door. Behind this panel, you'll find the drain pump, which has an access plug that turns out. Make sure you have a few towels handy to catch whatever water may be in the pump and/or drain hoses.

Good luck.

Dishwasher will not drain. We cannot get the screen out to check for clogs. There is a grey plastic box that prevents the screen from coming out.


Hi

Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump.
Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Genral oil change


Look for the oil dip stick. Now look under underneath the area of bike where the dip stick is. You'll see a round disc with a bolt. That is the drain plug. Now you found it lets begin.
1. Warm the bike up.
2. Turn bike off.
3. Take oil dip stick out.
4. Have your oil pan under the bike
5.. Unbolt drain plug. A spring and screen will come out keep them together.
6. After oil finished draining. Make sure Screen is clean before replacing back in with the spring.
7. Start the bolt in by hand then finish with tightening with socket.
8. Put oil dip stick back in. you're ready to go!

It takes 15W 40 ( .9 liters) Don't forget to press yes if this was helpful : )

My washer/dryer is not draining properly.


If the pump is not draining, either the drain filter screen is clogged with debris, the drain pump is jammed by foreign debris or the drain pump itself has failed.  More than likely something is clogged in the filter screen or a sock is jammed up inside the drain bellows tube just before the filter.  Pull the drain filter screen out and look up the hole to see if there is any material stuck inside.  Usually that's the problem.
