Cleaning the filter

Hi, we have lost our manual and we were wondering if there was anything we could do to clean the filter- all of our clothes come out smelling burnt even when they have not been fully dried (as in we're not burning them to a crisp!)

I suppose you want to clean the lint vent to outside. Clean out the filter first by removing the manual filter and pulling off all stuck lint. Try this link to clean the vent:

I can't get the front panel off my HE3 #44836 to clean the filter. The rubber backing crumbled on my bath mats in the washer. I vacuumed out the tub, but where did the rest of the rubber crumbles go? ...

Read the owners manual. Many washers have 'self cleaning' filters that will get clogged with big stuff. The 'moldy odor' is caused by MOLD. Run a 'extra large' empty load of HOT water with normal detergent + 1 PINT of ordinary bleach. Add another shot (pint) of bleach to the rinse cycle. Sometimes a small article (sock?) will escape the clothes basket and get trapped in the tub--it can't get drained out and can't get back into the clothes basket. The bleach will kill the mold, but if it returns you will have to take the top off and fish the lost article out using a bent clothes hanger as a hook.

Cleaning the machine. pipe???

are you using liquid detergent? this has the effect when used for long periods of making the machine smell like drains. if so, put on a boil wash with no clothes and revert to powder detergent. there is a filter which needs clearing if drain is access, remove bottom panel at back. filter is located in large pipe leading from tub to pump on the lhs. undo this pipe at the tub end and the filter is inside. some water will come out so be prepared. unplug from mains first
