Most washers have a drain hose that is mouted high to keep the water in. If you drop the hose to floor level it will drain with out help. Be sure you have a floor drain or bucket. Then check the belt on the motor if there is slack it will not engage the pump for drain to operate. Need to tighten the belt.

Today I will be showing you how to drain & clean your Drain Filter on a Front Loading Washing Machine.

Be sure to unplug your machine, before doing anything beyond this point.


Most washing machines have a already accessible compartment for your convenience at the front of the machine.

Common compartments can be found here:

Compartments can be opened by any small flat object, insert it at the top and flip it out downwards.


Ready a small bowl, and position under the drain filter compartment. Position towels by the compartment

You now need to drain the water, there should be a small pipe with either a plastic cork / small tap which you can open. Let it drain all the water to the bowl:jedemeyer1_16.jpg

Not all Washing Machines have this pipe fitted, if that is your case, get some more towels, and a low dish for the next step.


Now the filter is the round compartment you can see, it is taken out by turning it anti-clockwise. Once loose, more water will be streaming out (a small amount, if drained adequately in the last step).
Once this filter is out, you can clean the filter cap, which should be out of the machine (In your hand, sir) - Wash it of under a running tap.

Insert your fingers into the Pump Compartment, and remove any gunk (coins, toothpicks, small stones etc), if you push your fingers in deep enough you will feel the drain pump's impeller, make sure this can be moved with no obstruction, by turning it with your fingertips.

Re-insert the filter, close the compartment and plug in your machine again.
It is recommended to clean your filter at least once a week, to avoid build-up that could harm your drain pump.

I hope you have been helped with this Tip.

Samsung WF7700N6W1 washing machine not draining

Could be a sock or something between the 2 drums that moves over the outlet hole from the drum when upright and trying to drain but moves away when machine is on its side. Get a flashlight and look through the holes in the inner drum and you may find the culprit.
A coin may also be stuck in by the pump blade, not always easy to see but worth a look.

LG washing machine. Fabric softener not being taken by dispenser drawer. It has been washed and the drain pump and filter also cleaned out. Problem remains so why is the conditioner not being taken?

Please remove power of the unit and this will reset the unit. Now select a program that is different from the earlier one and see if this works. Also check once again on the filter and check the dispenser drawer to be in place. Set the water level once again.Hope this helps.

you can open the filter drainage under near the drain hose. there may be something that comes into the washer drum and died leaving a smell. how to open the filter is rotated and pulled out only. then you try to drain the washing machine how to turn it. will allow water or sewage, which is in the drum filter out of the hole. and do not forget to clean the exhaust filter the water, there will be a lot of dirt.

Hi there

I have an IZ12 jetsystem which sometimes works and other times it starts and then clicks and stops just before the water starts to run in. I usually turn it off and try it again a few hours later and then it starts to work again. Sometimes it is the next day before it will work again. Would anyone know the problem?

My kenmore washer will aggitate and drain but not spin. what gives?

Possibly not draining fully , so drum is too heavy to spin , check , clean and replace drain filter and try again .N.B. If there is still washing / water in the machine you need to remove this first or you risk flooding your kitchen floor.

The washer goes into spin cycle but the water will not pump out. I've checked the fuse and it is good.

hi there......if the water will not pump out its a fair bet you got a problem with the drain pump.....first open and clean out the filter unit...then try drain cycle on machine...ok....if not ok...remove and check drain pump for blockage....remove bottom hose to drain pump from machine and check for blockage in the hose and also for blockage in drum...sock etc...reassemble and all should be well again

Whirlpool front loader washing machine (AWO3361) WONT DRAIN

Remove drain hose from where it connects to the plumbing under the sink/tub. Inspect the spigot. If clogged, clean. If clean, then tilt machine back and remove drum to pump hose from pump. Check hose and also drain pump. Clear any obstructions.
