Location of filter on maytag performa heavy duty washing machine

I bought a second hand maytag performa heavy duty 8kg capacity top load washer. I do not have a manual for this product. My question is:

Does this machine have a filter section and if so where is it located, so as I can clean this area.

regards

I'm sorry Hilda, most washers that have been put out over the last several years don't have a filter per se. When the wash cycle agitates and lint is released from the clothes, the outside of the basket (the area where you put your clothes) is very sharp where the holes are. Lint collects on these holes as the linty water flows through them. When the rinse and spin cycles dis-lodges it and send it down the drain.

There are some availibkle aftermarket kits availible at some appliance parts stores. They are generics and not produced by the manufactues, but if you wanted a lint catcher n a washer, it would be an option.

I hope this helps with you questions. If you have any other quiestions or concerns, please feel free to write me back.

Does a maytag MAT13MNAGW top load commercial washer have a lint remover / filter. Where is it located. As I have lint issues & I bought the machine second hand


The filter is on the bottom of the machine you have to tip it back or lay it down. You can then see the pump and other hardware. The filter is on the line from the tub to the pump.

Just trying to find out drum capacity of my maytag heavy duty super capacity 7 cycle washer. Please help


Check the tag where you find the model and serial number, they often list it there. Your owners manual should tell you as well. You might have to call whirlpool (maytag), I cannot find the capacity listed on the tech info. Good luck.

Could you please tell me how to remove the agitator for cleaning on a Maytag top loading performa machine heavy duty.super size 3 speeds quiet series 100 13 cycles Thank you Bob Clark bobgc@bigpond.com


The agitator on a Maytag Performa comes off by removing the center post cap and dispenser by pulling on it. Locate the agitator bolt and loosen (you may need to hold the agitator in place while loosening). With the bolt removed, the agitator will lift off.

If you still have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

My MayTag performa oversized capacity washer wont spin


Usually this is caused by the pump being cloged or broken. Remove the pump and clean the pump out. Make sure it spins freely by hand.
