You will need to tip the machine on it's side and access bottom and rear panels. Then check the pump and drain screen and drain for clogs and loose parts.

Is there a filter on this model

Of course. The filter is located in the pump behind 'front' bottom panel. Disconnect power, 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. Be prepared for a lot of water, catch it in something to prevent more work. Clean the filter from any debris that prevents water from draining out properly. Front loaders hv filters, top loaders don't. Don't forget to click that you are helped!

How can I best access the pump on my Samsung front load washer? I don't know how to remove the front panel

Some samsung washers have the water pump located in the back of the machine. If your model does not have a small door located in the bottom of front than remove back service panel to access the water pump.

The water wont drain and the is a clicking noise coming out of the water pump motor

Something may be stuck in the pump impeller causing it to make a clicking or rattling noise. Disconnect power then remove the lower front access panel to access the pump filter and the pump impeller.

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.

Drain the water into a bucket or shallow pan and lay a piece of towel under the pump filter prior to the removal of the filter. Turn the filter knob counterclockwise to remove and clean it. Reach in the pump to check if it is restricted or detached from the pump motor spline. Replace the pump assembly if the impeller is broken or detached.

We need to replace the drain hose in our Kenmore Elite HE3t washing machine. How do I get access into the machine to replace the hose? Is it from the top or the back?

To replace the drain hose, follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the washer and turn it around so you can access the rear panel.

2. Use a wet/dry shop vac and pull a vacuum on the drain hose. This will remove any existing residual water that remains in the drain line and pump minimizing any mess you may have to clean up later. NOTE: There is about a gallon of residual water that normally remains between the lower wash basket, drain lines and pump.

3. Remove the rear panel by loosening the screws around the perimeter of the back panel. With the screws removed,the panel should lift off. NOTE: There is a smaller access in the center of the back panel that can also be removed. Removing the entire back allows for better access though. Trying to work through the center access can be a cut hazard due to the sharp edges on the metal.

4. Move around the the front of the washer and remove the lower toe panel under the door. You may have to prop up the two front feet of the washer to access the screws under the bottom front edge. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then lift off.

Additionally removing the front toe panel will give you full access to the drain pump from the FRONT and the REAR. The pump sits closer to the front of the washer where you can easily access the hose clamps. The drain hose inserts from the rear, however.

Since you have the washer apart, now would be a good time to check the drain pump clean out trap to ensure there is no debris build up that can restrict drainage. The following link explains the recommended procedures to check the drain pump:

If you have any questions about any of this advice, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Something is stuck in our LG front loader washing machine so the water wont empty in the spin cycle

There should be two screws under the front lower panel. Remove the two screws and remove the lower panel. You should be able to access the pump from here.
Inscrew the cover on the front of the pump and clean.

I need to replace the pump on my Admiral AAV70000AWW washing machine but need a repair guide manual or instructions

Electrically Isolate the machine
To access the pump the front panel needs to be removed, first the machine top needs to be opened,
at the joint between the machine front panel and top insert a flat blade 4" from each side to release the lid catches, tilt back the top to access the internal screws on the front panel and remove the front by lifting off it the bottom brackets.
Ensure the machine is empty of water, to do this lower the waste drain pipe to floor level and clooect any water in a suitable container.
Tilt the machine back 45 degrees and remove the drive belt and bolts for the pump, remove the hoses from the pump, refit in reverse order.

Water wont drain /wont spin out

  • assuming it is a top loader
  • it sounds like something is stuck in the water pump.
  •  if the water does not drain then it will never spin.
  •  take off the front panel (with a butter knife, push in the two metal clips in the front seam between the top panel and the front panel. this will release the front panel from the machine. 
  • the water pump is located on the right side in the front. 
  • before removing the hoses attached to the water pump get as much water out of the machine as possible so it does not spill on the floor.
  •  then take off the hoses and check inside the pump thoroughly; even a string might cause the pump to get stuck.
  • let me know if you need more help
