Question about Whirlpool Ultimate Care II LSQ9549L Top Load Washer

1 Answer

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.

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.

GE Front Load Washer Model#GCVH6260F-Problem with no washing, spin or aggitate function but motor works fine...


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.

You need to clean out your outlet filter; this needs to be done periodically - according to your usage. If this does not solve your problem check out your outlet pump. Plug off the wall first before you do the jobs. The machine will not drain if the outlet is clogged.

Blocked outlet


Power off the wall. Get user's manual, look for blocked filter. Open up the filter, usually front bottom right side, clean, refit. Be prepared for much water to come out. The filter requires periodic cleaning according to usage.

Your outlet filter is blocked, check this out and clean it and refit. The filter requires periodic cleaning according to your use. For most machines the filter door is at the front bottom; just look for it in your users' manual.
