The filter is connected to the drain pump. Filter is accessed through the service access panel located in front of the machine, on the lower side, right below the door.
Remove the trim at the base of the machine using a lever, then unscrew the filter cap located at the left hand side, ensure that you have a container ready to collect the water.

The panel is part 19 in the diagram below, click on the picture to enlarge:

Mold growing around ice dispenser area. Cant figure out how to get to the mold .

Pull ice maker out and clean it. Then make sure you have a fresh water filter on water supply. Mold in the freezer is uncommon if its truly freezing inside. You have dirty water coming in.

How do i get my filter out of my bush a127ldw washing machine got E03 error am working my way through your list but cant get filter out

Water inlet filters
On the tap part of your machine's water inlet
hose and at the ends of water inlet valves, there
are filters to prevent entrance of the dirt and
foreign materials in the water to the machine. If
the machine is unable to receive sufficient water
although your water tap is fully opened, these
filters should be cleaned.
x Remove the water inlet hose.
x Remove the filters found on the water inlet
valves by using a pincer and wash thoroughly
with a brush. (1)
x Clean the filters of the water inlet hoses
located on the tap side by removing manually
together with the seal. (2)
x After you clean the filters, you can fit them
the same way as you have removed them.

Pump filter
The pump filter system elongates the life of your
pump, which is used to drain the dirty water. It
prevents lint to enter the pump. Cleaning of your
pump filter in every 2-3 months is
recommended. To clean your pump filter:
x Open the kickplate's cover, by pulling the
handle. (2-A & 3-A)
x Before opening the filter cover,place a cup in
front of the filter cover to prevent flow of the
remaining water in the machine.
x Loosen the filter cover by rotating it counter
clockwise and drain the water. (4-A)
x Remove the foreign materials from the filter.
x Check for the rotation of the pump manually.
x After you have cleaned the pump, fit the filter
cover by rotating clockwise.
x Put the kickplate cover into place.
x Do not forget that if you do not fit in the filter
cover properly, it will leak water.

The dishwasher will not drain properly


Dishwasher not draining issue usually occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump. Also, check for any food pieces stuck near the pump impeller.
Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat.

Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Cant find the filter

Trace the inlet water line to find the filter that is fitted on the machine to clean off the dirt in the inward water flow.
The drain out from the bottom will have the drain filter mounted at the drain hose end.
Clean the valve/pump which has the filter build in so as not to clog the pump.

Where is front loader pump located, washer wont drain water, cleaned the filter ,want 2 look at pump 2 c if its good, cant find it

You simply take the 3 screws out from under the front lip. AND THE PUMP IS SITTING RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF YOU SHOULD LOOK LIKE THIS

put a cake pan under the lip of the drain and unscrew the filter to take out the stinky water. Once it won't unscrew anymore pull the filter out and clean. OR PULL THE ENTIRE PUMP OUT TO PERFORM A INSPECTION OF THE PUMP

Not draining water, not spinning, error code FL

I THINK, (Not sure, but fairly convinced) that the error FL is a warning that your FiLter is blocked. When this happens, the pump can't drain the water in the alloted time that the machine has set to do it, so at the end of the pump out, there is still water left. Bacause of this, it won't allow the spin cycle to engage. You need to find your filter and clean it out. If this fixes the problem, make a regular habit of checking and cleaning the filter every month or so (Depending on how much washing you do... You will figure out a good time scale after you have done a few checks and decided how fast the lingt and rubbish builds up in the filter).

LG WM2010CW filter drain no draining

In all likelihood the rubber drain hose is clogged. I had the same problem with my LG front loader. The hose was clogged with sand and dirt almost the entire length of the hose. The following solution is far simpler than taking the dryer apart to clear the drain hose. Besides I figure this same thing could keep reoccurring with all the sand and dirt we get in our clothes here in East Texas.

I purchased about 4 feet of 3/16 inch OD vinyl tubing and adapted it to fit on the end of a garden hose. The adapter gizmo included a valve so I could control the water flow and not give myself a bath. A picture of the gizmo is included below. Make sure that when you connect the water hose to the faucet that the faucet valve is just slightly opened and that the gizmo valve is closed. Using the gizmo is straight forward. First remove the drain filter and than insert the vinyl tubing in the end of the rubber drain hose and slowly open the valve on the gizmo. Make sure you have a large pan or bucket underneath the drain hose to catch the debris and water. Slowly advance the tubing up inside the hose until it won’t go any further. By this time water will also be running out of the drain filter cavity which will indicate the clog has been removed. Continue back flushing for a few more seconds to assure all the debris has been cleared, than clean up and you’re finished.

My coffee maker over flows most of the time and i cant figure out why, im thinking its the filters I am using. Could this be the problem?

You may want to verify the following:
Fill the reservoir to upper limit then cycle it without a filter and just make hot water. If it fills the pot and you do not get any overfill, then everything is working properly and your problem may be the filter or you may have a problem with the drain actuator that the pot bumps into to allow water out of the mixing area.. It's probably a good idea to run a cup or two of white vinegar thru the entire system every now and then to clean the tube, reservoir and system of any deposits.. Hope this helps..
