I don't know where the filter is in my siemens washing machine to clean it. I think this is causing the problem I''m having as the washing powder is sticking to the clothes. Can you help please.


Check the filter at the front of the machine at the base.



There should be a small cover at front of machine at base.


Open this cover and inside you will see a circular cap.


This needs to be unscrewed anti clock wise, it can be stiff if not used before.


remember you will have to catch the water that comes out and pull out any debris inside.


It is possibly blocked or has debris inside.


Remember you will have to catch the water be prepared.

How do i clean a filter of a whirlpool awm 5080 front loader


If you are talking about the drain pump strainer, you need to remove the lower front panel. should be 3 screws on the bottom facing forward. Once you have that off, the pump strainer is almost in the center, facing you. unscrew it counterclockwise to remove.

Front loader full of water, did the wash and won't drain or spin


It will not spin if it has water in it. you need to remove and clean the filter.
Generally speaking the filter is usually located at the bottom right front of washer.
Some times behind a removeable cover at bottom of washer.
Once you have located it, unscrew the filter anti-clickwise to remove and clean.
Hope this helps.

Whirlpool AWM 6100/s - stopping mid cycle, not draining - unusual whirring noises, programme stops with '0' and '100' flashing on spin meter as well as paus and 'wash'


Yeah. This is a pump problem. Our machine first did this about 3 months ago. I took the filter plug out and removed about 10 coins from around the pump impeller area! I removed the pump and dismantled it. Unfortunately water was getting in past the seal on the pump spindle. I cleaned it all out and reassembled it. Worked fine till a couple of weeks ago. It has worn out the spindle "bearings" and because of the loose play it gets stuck, intermittently. If you are by the machine when the drain cycle starts , you can give the filter housing a few bangs(take off the circular cover) . The pump will start up .It makes a grumbly sound, as it is knackered. But once started will generally keep going.The answer however is a new pump. And probably a pact with everyone in your household to be more careful not to leave stuff in the clothes you put in the machine. Our washer has got through 2 mobile phones. a packet of bradding nails, a lot of cash, both coins and notes.Various other stuff that i wont mention! The pump gets very hot when it is trying to turn but cant because of debris on the impeller. This will lead to the pump failing after a time.

Not solution i need


The pump cleanout is located on the front of the machine, bottom right corner. There are only three screws holding the bottom cover on. It is easy to get to if you prop it up a few inches off the ground.
