No lint filter on a performa washer, stay with the same detergent brand and if used same fabric softner mixing different brands will cause a gunkey compound that can get onto your clothes

Why is water is leaking out of the filter located behind the small door at bottom left on front of washer?


that door houses the pump filter, which regularly needs opening and clearing as the pump access gets full of detritus (lint, pins, buttons, hair etc.) the leaking may be due to it getting totally clogged, or possibly the rubber "O" ring that closes the seal needs replacing.

Maytag washer squeaks when spin cycle stops


We have a Maytag Performa G3300 that we bought on 8/13/2001. It still works great, but on 2/25/10 it stopped heating. We found that by removing the front panel and vacuuming the accumulated lint on the inside of the dryer and the door, the problem was resolved. There were no parts to replace, just vacuuming.

Washer not spinning


Plug off the mains. The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a good plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully. Check your pump too.

First check your kitchen drain (or wherever your washer is installed)by pouring a good amount of water into it, to see if it is clear. Try snaking it out.

Washer won't drain or spin


Remove the front lower panel. Right in front you will see the pump filter. Get some towels and a bucket and unscrew the filter cap and pull the filter out. See if you have a bunch of lint and stuff in there. If you do, clear it out, refit carefully and give the washer another try. The companies dont tell you how to do it, for their techs then won't make any money. A tech to clean your filter!!!?? $$$

You're free to rate me............not that i get anything. Happy washing!!

Brown dirt-like looking "gunk" coming out of the washer


The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the hose you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels or a good big plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully.

Next: You can use Affresh to clean your front loader. Deposits of soap and other such things can be stuck around the inside tub of your washer. Try this product, it works great on all front loaders. Use hot water with the Affresh pellet with no clothes and run the machine through a cycle. Also helps with any stagnant water smells. Have you cleaned out your pump lately. Put the pellet inside the machine, not in the soap dispenser.
Pl give me a good rating for the free help, thanks.
