Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer

Filter? Is there a filter I should be cleaning out periodically?

I have been told that there is a filter on a washer that should be cleaned periodically but I can't find one in the instruction manual nor in the washer.
This is a Whirlpool Ultimate Care II - commercial quality - 21 cycles - 6 speed combination. Can anyone tell me?

    This was so nice of you to answer what probably sounded like a stupid question. But a neighbor insisted that every washer had a filter. So thank you very, very, much.

There is no filter to clean in your machine.....any lint or other build up is designed to go out with the drain water...

Water not draining


Remove the bottom panel. Screws are located on the bottom edge. There is a filter that needs to be cleaned periodically. Have a large pan ready to catch the water that will come out of the machine. A few towels might be a good idea as well. Open (unscrew) the filter cap and remove/clean the tray. Check the drain tube that leads into the filter for blockage. I have found entire pencils in there. This info is not in the manual. A GE service tech told me about it.

I have a kenmore front load washer. I was told to remove the kick plate to check the filter but my manual has no instructions.


You need to remove the lower front panel (three small screws at floor level) after removing you will see the drain pump right there in the middle. Place a shallow pan under the front of the pump, then remove the cap on the front of the pump,clean out all the debris and wash off then line up the marks on the cap and housing to reinstall That's all there is to it.Good Luck

There is most likely something stuck in the rubber hose between the drum and the pump, Unfortunately this is not easy to get to as it requires tilting the machine back and climbing underneath to remove the hose and check it. Make sure you disconnect the power before doing this.

Determine venting requirements


When you initially unpackage the microwave oven it is already set up for RECIRCULATION mode (which is VENTLESS). However, since the unit recirculates air rather than exhausting it out through the wall or roof, it usually uses a couple of small charcoal filters behind the upper grille and mesh filters on the underside that have to be changed or cleaned periodically. These filters will accumulate grease and dirt over time and should be periodically checked in order to maintain proper ventilation and air flow. Information pertaining to the location and care of the filters is explained on Page 4 of your Owner's Manual.

NOTE: If you wish to convert to a VENTED system, the instructions are listed on Page 4 of the Installation Guide.

If you do not have either manual you can obtain copies at managemylife.com. Just type in your model number as "GMH3174XVB" and you will find the manuals listed in a .pdf (Adobe) format that can be printed or downloaded for FREE.

If you have any questions, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Where is the filter


The filter is located at the rear`of the washer.
To access it, remove the rear lower panel.
You will see a large black hose, remove hose from bottom of tub, and you will find the plastic filter inside, remove filter and clean.
Refit filter and hose, and test.
If it still does not spin, then you need to check the brushes.
If you require info on how to check and change them, then let me know.
Please rate my fixya solution.
Thanks.




THanks.

Foul smell coming from washer


Run a vinegar wash periodically. My mother has an upright that was doing the same thing and all the repair man told us was to not use powder detergent, clean the gasket, and do the vinegar washes periodically.

try cleaning out the filter - it's behind the bottom panel (three screws to remove) you will see a round disk - unscrew it and pull out the filter. I have to clean ours every six months - it's too bad GE didn't put it in their manual, that this needs to be cleaned periodically.
