    My washer is not emptying and stopping mid-cycle. I suspect that the filter is blocked. Apparently the filter is located in the outlet hose behind the bottom panel at the back of the washer but I'm not sure how you remove it? Any help???

Couldnt find that model # but most washers wash the lint down the drain or theres a small screen around the tub that you slide out to clean out lint or debris. You should also look at your owners manual under mantainace and if theres nothing mentioned then theres nothing to clean or maintain. Good Luck

I am not familiar with this machine's model, but in most of the machines the filter is located under the panel in the bottom of the machine (the panel under the front door). You should pull the panel out and you will find the filter there. Before openning the filter prepare a bowl and a floor cloth to avoid water's flooding. Good luck!

I can't find the user manual for this particular Whirlpool washer And manuals of a similar model number don't mention the filter location.

Where is the fuel filter located on a 2000 harley davidson fatboy

To clean the carbureted model's filter, you drain the gas from the tank, remove petcock and filter, clean filter with compressed air, reinstall. The fuel injected model requires that you drain the tank, remove the entire pump assembly from inside the tank, and then replace the filter (it can't be cleaned).

The carbureted model's filter is supposed to be inspected and cleaned every 20k miles. The fuel injected model's filter is supposed to be replaced every 25k miles.

Poorly designed filter location (subject to flour dust), easily plugged. No provision for cleaning or user replacement. Best solution is to stick filter material over the filter to provide a pre-filter. You can easilr clean or replace this pre-filter. I used computer filter media with double-stick tape.

how can i clean the air filter element, and where is it located

What is error code c2 11?

Clean the air filter even if it looks clean. The air filter is located in the front panel(unscrew knob to open door)...filter looked ok to me but cleaned it under water and that fixed the problem. Note: I cleaned the water filter first and that did not solve the problem. A simple test to see if the air filter is the problem...take the panel door off, press the filter door button and test hot water usage.

Clean pump indication light on .how do i clean pump

dear sir/mam
clean pump means we should clean the filter provided in the pump line,in some models filter will be located inner bottom of the washing machine and outer bottom of the washing machine so please check it and clean the filter.

Cleaning the filter

Here is the link for your manual:

How to clean your filter:
The PermaWick™ Filter should be cleaned in a vinegar and water solution to remove any mineral buildup. Place in a solution of one (1) gallon of water and eight (8) ounces of undiluted white vinegar. Allow the filter to soak for 20 minutes.
After soaking, rinse it several times with clean water. Place the PermaWick™ Filter in a location where it can drip dry while you clean the other parts of your humidifier.

They say the frequency that you will have to clean your filter depends on yoru quality of water. The harder the water you have the more you will have to clean it.

Good Luck.
