If you suspect the drain pump is clogged, the following link explains how to access and clean it:

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

Usually a drainage problem is associated with either an error code of "F02" or "F22", depending on model number.

If you check the drain pump reservoir and the problem still persists, you may have a pump with a damaged motor/impeller, or something lodged in one of the drain lines. In particular, the drain line that runs from the bottom of the wash tub to the inlet side of the pump.

I recommend you remove the inlet hose, as well, and inspect for clogs. In is common for small garments to become lodged in this area and restrict water flow to the drain pump. Check the output drain line for obstructions as well.

It does not take much to damage these small drain pumps. If any error codes are present, they are generated if the drain cycle exceeds 8 minutes. So...if the impeller or motor become damaged, and the pump does not pull water at the correct volume, you may still experience the drain error. In this case, you will have to replace the pump in order to get the error to clear. The following link explains how:

Replacements can be purchased at any of the following websites:

searspartrsdirect.com
pcappliancerepair.com
appliancepartspros.com
repairclinic.com

Prices vary between sites, so shop and compare. the first three sites listed also have helpful exploded view parts illustrations to assist you with locating and properly identifying the parts you may need.
If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

I need to clean the lint filter on my whirlpool duet front loading washing mashine. where is it located and how can I get to it?


Its not really a lint filter ,it catches everything that gets down to the drain pump.You need to remove the lower panel on the front of the unit(three small screws one on each side and one in the center down at the floor) pull out bottom of panel to axcess the drain pump. MAKE sure to unplug before working inside.drain pump will have two hoses running to it ,to clean out the filter (trap) turn the cap facing you to the left to remove some water will drain out have a towel to catch reinstall everying in reverse order .sounds like a lot but is actually very easy after the first time

lon this type of machine there is a lint trap on the lower right of the bottom access panel. It is part of the pump. Disassemble the pump/filter see if anything is caught in it. If there is clean and try again, if problem remains then replace pump/filter combination

Lint trap


First you need to remove three screws on the front lower panel. This will expose a round "plug" to your right. This is the lint/drain trap. Place a bucket under the plug. Slowly unscrew this plug and aloow the water to drop into the bucket. Make sure your plug is clean and reset it.

Bosch Front Load not draining


Sounds like a blockage. First port of call. Check where the drain hose goes into the sink trap of your Laundry Trough. Here in Australia we connect the drain hose into the sink trap. Most of the time if the hole drilled into the sink trap is not large enough it can create an obstruction in the waterflow out of the machine. Lint and stuff can build up and partially and at times fully block the exit into the trap. Try this first.
If that appears fine you should remove the drain in the front bottom of the machine. Use a bath towel to absorb the wter that exits as you unscrew the round plug in the bootom of the machine. If the plug wont unscrew or only partially unscrews you will need to call a technician to remove the drain pump and unblock things.
Goodluck. Let me know how it goes.
Regards Sam

Lint fell back into lint trap. how can i get it out? already looked in back.


An appliance store can sell you a brush that is attached to a long wire. It is made specifically for removing lint from dryers. I have seen them at walmart and other places but for sure at an appliance store. Good luck.
