There isn't any filters in washers like the older machines had

Posted on Apr 10, 2011

  • Sal DeAngelo Apr 10, 2011

    is this a front load washer?when you ask a question you have to send the brand name and model number off of the machine not the book,if it's a front load washer the center of the pump unscrews so you can clean it

  • Sal DeAngelo Apr 10, 2011

    also on some machines you just remove the drain hose that goes to the pump,remove the hose and clean out anything in the pump, but send the model number

Filter has clean hoses and new sand, but water return is still low. valve cover has debris in non-removable housing.

Does not sound like a product failure. But more info would help so I'm making some assumptions. Double check the hose connections going into the filter are in the proper location. The hose from the pump will plug into the highest port and the return to the pool will be the lower port that does not have the sight glass. Make sure you are only vac'ing on the "filter" or "waste" setting. Never vacuum your pool on "backwash". If this is not your problem then look to the pump for an impeller blockage. Lining the pump basket with a nylon stocking will keep debris like cottonwood from making it through the basket and clogging impellers and filters.

Where is the cabin air filter location on a 1994 mercury capri

1994 Mercury Capri ac does not have a cabin air filter. Weak air flow and bad smell could be debris in the fresh air/ac inputs. Check under the hood for debris where the air enters, the area under the wiper, and behind the vents inside, they get clogged if you park under a shedding tree...Chris

How do I clean the drain filter assembly on may tag dishwasher mdb4651awb

Sometimes this can only be gotten to by unscrewing the bottom spray arm in the basin of the DW. First, look in the bottom of your DW to see if you can unclog the screen by hand. This is the Drain Filter Assembly. It screens the waste so the pump doesn't get clogged. If you swipe stuff on the bottom of the DW like that leaf lettuce and rice, this might help.

Is their debris in air gap or in the bottom of the DW, where the drain is screened?

1. The air gap is usually located on top of the sink. Lift off the pretty cover, and unscrew the top cap nut. Is there rice and debris there? Remove it then. Reassemble and check it out.
2. The DW drains to the bottom of the unit where the pump is. This area is screened off so that the pump doesn't get clogging debris in it. is their leaf lettuce and stuff covering this? Remove that debris. Some times this area can only be accessed by removing the bottom spinning spray head. It comes off with a nut, possibly this nut is reverse thread. Reassemble when done looking for debris.
3. Is the drain line between the DW pump (located under the DW) and the waste pipe kinked? This line is a plastic corrugated line about 7/8" around the outside. It is a pumped waste and won't work if it is kinked, so unkink it.
4. Is the float stuck. This is a device on the bottom of your DW that tells the DW how much water is in the bottom of the DW basin. It looks like a mushroom. Gently move it up and down. Does it move freely or is it stuck? Unstick it.

Good luck.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 1992 oldsmobile custon criuser

The fuel filter in the Oldsmobile Intrigue is located under the car in front of the fuel tank. The purpose of the fuel filter is to pull out any debris and sediment that may have been sucked up by the fuel pump in the tank. Harmful sediment and debris can be hazardous to the engine. Replacement of the filter should be done every 30,000 miles.

I have a portable GE Dishwasher that seems to be not doing its job like it used to, the dishes are not coming out very clean, What should be looking for?

You probably have a clogged filter. It's usually located in the sump area under the lower spray arm.
I cleaned mine (9 yr old Maytag) and it works like new. Debris like paper from labels, and sandy looking debris (I think coffee grounds) clogged my filter. Good luck!

I wonder why there is still water left inside my front load after draining. It used to be totally drained. But now as you turn the drum by hand you can hear water inside of it. My samsung is Wd 6102

Hi the likely problem is a blocked drain filter or a bad pump. Their will either be a small door at the front right or a removable panel under the door. gain access to the pump and beside the pump there will be what looks like a gas cap on a car. unscrew it and clean the filter. If you don't see too much that would block the filter then your problem is the pump replace it. If you have any other questions please feel free to comment. Mike

Where is the engine air filter located? Is there a manual I can look at?

It's behind your glove box. I just replaced mine and I was really glad I did. There was a huge amount of debris in it. When you buy a new filter, instructions will be in the box for your specific vehicle.
