You do not need to prop up the washer.
the screws are easily reached, unscrew 3 along the top and bottom panels.
the bottom panel does not, should not come off, the drain is white, attached to a black hose inside, remember a bucket!
do not touch that motor! it is ungrounded and will shock you!

Prop up the unit on some wood to access the torx bits from the underside.
There will be 2-3 holding the kick panel in place.

SOURCE: Taking off front bottom toe panel

There are three 9/32 hex head screws along the very bottom of the panel, you have to look under the curve of the panel to see them, take those out and pull down and out on the panel.

There is no acutal filter on this unit...You cab remove the back panel to access the drain pump ...Or tilt the washer back and access it from the bottom...Remove the drain hose from tub to drain pump...(careful of flow of water from tub)...Check the hose for any blockage...If no blockage then your pump is bad..

How do I access the drain pump on a Whirlpool Duet washing machine model WFW94HEXW2?


Hi Marc,
Unfortunately, access to the pump & filter is harder on the HEXW2 model than the Duets with the removable lower panel.
First you have to remove the lid panel (screws in top rear), then pull slightly rearward and up/out.
Next you'll have to remove the control panel, then remove the front drum boot from the front panel lip. A large diameter thin wire spring holds it in place, located just under the rubber lip edge. Begin the spring removal from a wire tab located toward the lower portion of the lip.

Then remove the door latch screws (IIRC), and the screws at the bottom edge and top of the front panel. The entire front panel must be removed to access the drain filter.

Tip

Clean the pump filter screen on a Kenmore HE2 Not draining


  1. Unplug machine.
  2. Remove bottom front panel(remove 2-3 screws in the bottom) Pull bottom of panel out and down to remove.
  3. Towards the center bottom you will see the pump. On the front is a round thing that resembles a filter. This is the pump filter screen...
  4. Get a shallow pan to put under screen. Turn lid counter clockwise to remove(turn slowly and allow water to drain. As you may need to dump pan several times before all water is drained out. Be careful or you could end up with water everywhere. Once the water is drained pull out screen and remove the debris and objects stuck in screen and filter housing you should also be able to see the impeller on the pump inspect for debris.
  5. Once everything is cleaned out reverse removal procedures put back together.

What's F-21


This error code F21 signifies a drain problem and usually caused by a blocked drain filter. Check to make sure that the drain hose is free from obstructions then remove the three screws securing the bottom front panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and off the cabinet. You may prop up the bottom front edge of the machine with a 4X4 block of wood or cushion the top rear edge and lean it against the wall for easy access and removal of the screws.

Once the bottom front panel is off, you'll find the drain filter knob. Turn the knob counterclockwise to remove and clean the filter. You may need to lay a towel under the filter to catch residual water before removing it. Manually drain the water, by gravity, from the tub if significant amount of water is still present by placing the end of the drain hose as low as possible into a basin or bucket.

How do you remove the filter???? it doesnt say in the instructions


The drain filter in Whirlpool front load washers is located at bottom front inside of the machine. Remove the screws securing the bottom front panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and off. You can prop up the bottom front edge of the machine with a block of wood or cushion the rear top edge and lean it against the wall for easy access and removal of the screws.

Once the panel is off, you'll find a knob which the filter itself. Turn the knob counterclockwise to remove and clean the filter. You may need to lay a towel under the filter to catch residual water before removing it. Manually drain the water, by gravity, from the tub if significant amount of water is still present by placing the end of the drain hose as low as possible into a basin or bucket.

Drain wont drain on a epic washer where is the drain filter located at


The drain filter is located in the pump behind front bottom panel. Disconnect power and 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. Clean the filter from any debris that prevents water from draining out properly.

I have a LTF2940ES3 and the water drains slowly and not completely. I get the error code E20 and I have already checked the exterior hose and it is not clogged. I washed a stuffed toy pillow and it tore...


There is a filter in the black hose that goes from the tub to the pump. It must be where the toy stuffing blocked the water from draining. Access the hose through the front bottom panel then remove it from the bottom of the tub to get the filter out and clean it.

Remove the two screws attaching the front bottom panel to the cabinet then slide the panel down and off the cabinet. Prop up the bottom front edge of the washer or cushion and lean it against the wall to access the screws more easily.

Loosen the clamp holding the tub-to-pump hose to the tub to remove it and take out filter. Clean the filter then reinstall it and the front bottom panel in reverse order of the removal steps.

Clothes come out soaking wet seams like it doesn't spin out the w


There are 3 possible places to look for filters as each machine is made differently –
1 If machine has a square flap fitted on the front filter maybe located behind this.

2 It could be located behind the front lower kick panel (remove panel to see).
3 Located inside the sump hose, this is the hose that is attached to the bottom of the
main tub.

Try this:
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.

On some models the filter is located ‘inside’ the big hose from the bottom of the tub. This takes more time to clean.

We get a F02 error relating to drain


F02 is the code for long drain. Your filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and other stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 screws. The panel will drop and come off. The filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a bunch of towels and unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in.
