How to Check your drain pump filter for foreign objects:
Most likely, this issue will be the cause of a clogged drain filter. Use my procedure below to help locate and clean this filter.
First, you will need to unplug your unit and shut off the rear water faucets that feed the unit. Next; Open the small trap door next to the drain hose connection to the back of the washer to gain access to the filter. Now, Push twits and pull out the filter cap that is visible ounce the trap door has been opened. Clear out any debris and wipe the filter and the surrounding area with a mild detergent. If needed, wear gloves and use vinegar or bleach to remove odors, mold and mildew. Rinse the parts completely, if possible. Next; Remove the drain hose and clean it with a mild detergent or warm water. If necessary, again use vinegar or bleach to remove odors and mildew. Completely purge this hose. Once the drain hose has been purged, Reconnect the drain hose and filter. Close the trap door. Reconnect the inlet hoses and plug in the unit and turn it back on for a test run.
