Where is the pump filter on an lg washer?

The PRIMARY filter for discharged water in most front loaders is located under the opening of the washer behind a small 'door'. There is usually a small tube which you will need to pull the plug from and drain about 2 cups of water into a bucket BEFORE you remove the filter to clean it.
After you unscrew the filter which is mounted from front-to-back and clean it out, replace both filter piece and plug and replace the small drain tube.
Close the access door and operate your machine.
* Clean this filter every month or especially after washing heavy lint-producing materials.

In the fall of 2009 I bought a front load 3.5 super capacity washer. All off a sudden it wont drain or spin and makes a buzzing/humming sound. Cancel and the bowl spins freely manually

You have something caught in your drain pump. If you have the manual for your machine, it would have instructions.
You need to locat and open the filter for the pump. Please note the machine is full of water, and when you open the filter cap, all the water will flow out.

I am not familiar with Kenmore as we do not have this brand in Australia. However, with most machines the filter is located at the front right bottom of the machine. Some have a flap open door then a twist cap. Other machines have a kick plate with needs to be removed, then a twist cap.
Some machine shave a hose bleeder next to cap which allows you to drain water out manually before opening the cap.
Once you open the cap clean filter and also check inside the cavity with a torch to see if anything is blocking the pump propellors.
Sometimes you are not able to physically see the pump propellors, so the pump needs to be removed and checked.

My washer is not draining water properly it is a hotpoint aquarius wf321 how do i get to the pump ther is a white cap at the bottom right hand corner it twists aunty clockwise but wont come of

There must be something stuck in the filter preventing it pulling out.
You can access the pump from the front by tilting the washer towards the rear, and removing the 2 screws securing the pump

Dry-spin doesn't work, because after rinsing the clothes are still wet. MOD- VBXR1070WOWW SER-SZ107967H

I'm assuming this is a G.E. brand because of the model number. Take the four screws off the very bottom panel of the front of the washer. Inside you will see a twist off rubber cap. Place a pan under it big enough to hold 2 quarts, and twist the cap open. When the water comes out and it is empty remove any accumulation of lint, loose change, etc. This should be done monthly to help the washer discharge the water on spin cycles.

Also, inside the door is a flat rubber ring. At the bottom pull the flap back. There are small holes there for the water to drain out. Lots of stuff accumulates there too, even as large as a pocket knife or ball point pen. Check that daily when washing.

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.

Leaking from under unit

there is a panel at the bottom front of the washer. along the bottom of the washerthere are three torx type screws to remove the panel these will be above the drawer unit if you purcased the stand. remove the panel by lifting from the bottom. then in the center you will see a plastic cap. twist the cap to remove. this is your lint filter. it pulls out and has a cup shaped piece attached to it pay attention to how it comes out im not sure if you can put it in wrong. clean the area out. there may be some water to spill out depending on how much is clogged in your system. replace the cap once you have cleaned it out this should help with your problems.

My kenmore h3t washer is showing codes f and sud

I had this exact problem: door wouldn't unlock, drum wouldn't drain water, error codes- suds and F(something).

Here what I had to do:
Remove the bottom panel then pull the big white twist plug which acts as a catch filter for big debris and also will empty the water in the washer. After cleaning the huge mess up I cleaned out the filter tray and reinstalled. Then started a cycle. Same problem.

Started over with draining and cleaning then went to the drain pump which is inline and directly to the right of the filter/drain twist cap. Its a black cylinder with a two wire plug on it. While it was trying to run to remove the water from the bottom of the washer it didn't sound right, instead there was just a hum and no apparent moment from the impeller. I then unplugged the machine and remove the two wire plug (open top access flap to access plug) and three mounting screws. Pulled the pump from the mounting surface and inspected. The pump looked good with no apparent issues. I then stuck my finger into the open cavities that were created by the removal of the pump and twist drain plug. Inside I found a piece of plastic that was left in a pair of pants.

Apparently this small plastic chunk was lodged in between the impeller blades of the pump and the lines that the water moves through not allowing the pump to turn. Reinstalled everything as I found it and no more issues.

I hope this helps someone. This forum had a ton of great ideas for me to check and probably saved me a lot of money.

Thank you. JJB

I believe the f06 is a clogged pump. You should be able to take off the bottom panel via 3 screws on the bottom of the panel. Inside should be 3 inch diameter white twist cap. Open it, but be ready with towels cause waters gonna come out. Thats the pump trap, it catches everything before hitting the pump. Hope that helps. Dave

Removing the lower front panel (3 screws nearest floor), and opening the round, white water pump filter cap (be ready to catch about 2 gallons of water!) is the best place to start. All you need is a Phillips head screwdriver and a large, flat pan (deep turkey tray works well)!

YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE what I found in my filter housing this morning (see photo below)!


The washer is working fine now, although I may go back and remove the entire water pump so it can be dismantled, thoroughly cleaned, and reinstalled.
