Posted by sue tyrrell on

  • cathe Jan 02, 2008

    The filter on the front bottom right hand corner has come undone very slightly and the water has started pouring out. The filter will not open fully nor twist back around fully to be secured back in its place.

Where is the filter on a wfs1273bw front load washing machine

It's behind the bottom kick plate, which is held in place by clips at the bottom right, centre and left. Slip your fingers under the kick plate on the right and tug up and forward until the clip releases. Repeat in the centre and on the left. You will see the cap (Looks like fuel cap) which unscrews. To save getting wet, if you can pull the machine out and tip it back 45 degrees, most of the water in the drum will run to the back and won't come out when you undo the cap. SOME will still escape, so have towels ready!

My Whirlpool washer fills up but won't stop poring into the washer. Is this something that is repairable?

Your water level switch could be defective. This switch has a plastic 1/4 hose connected from your tub to the switch. (should be easy to find.) Make sure this hose is connected to your tub and switch and the line has no holes. It is easy to test the switch by disconnecting the line from the tub and while water is flowing into your washer, Blow into the line. The pressure will stop the water flow. If not, Bad level switch.

My washing machine Whirlpool AWM049 has just developed a fault. Whatever program it is set to the dial turns, then when the dial reaches the position where it is supposed to fill with water it just stops....

I have the same problem. The dial does not start on the setting you set it to. It just clicks around then stops. I called out an engineer who said he thinks it is the control panel panel board. Didn't know if he could get the part which would be expensive. I was hoping someone would have the answer.

Do I need to clean the filter behind the lower front panel? I removed the panel but nothing in the owners manual that describes it. I heard that you need to do this every year or so for general...

Remove the lower kick plate. Unscrew the two screws holding the kick plate in place, and gently pull off to remove. The kick plate is the lower outside cover of the washing machine.

Place a small bucket under the white hose. Remove the cap on the white hose by untwisting it. Allow any remaining water in the hose to drain into the small bucket. There shouldn't be much water, but there can be some.

Look inside the white hose. Remove any visible obstructions or lint.

Look inside the hose cap. This is where the lint filter is. Remove any visible lint with your fingers. Rinse the hose cap under warm water to remove any remaining lint.

Twist the cap back onto the white hose. Put the kick plate back in place. Screw back on.

Remove the bottom casing covering the front of the machine just above the floor. Unscrew the circular cap SLOWLY- beware of vast amounts of water escaping though!
I had to use a low height roasting pan to catch water, and just unscrew the cap enough so as to control the flow of water, and enable to empty water away until its all gone. Incidentally, an old hairgrip was found to be the cause of my problem.
Confusingly, "clean pump" meant clean filter!

The washing machine is full of water and wont drain! rang the whirlpool tech line and was informed it was the filter and before sending a maintence guy to fix it at a cost of 114 euro ( thats the call out...

Plug off the wall. Would be good to siphon out maximum water from inside the washer first.
The filter is in the front, remove 3 screws under the front panel, remove the filter cap by turning to the left. (Right of the filter is the pump motor.) To collect the water when removing the filter cap you need a wet vac or a good plastic garbage bag, there could be a lot. Clear out the junk. Replace as you dismantled. If you still have a problem, you have to check the pump to see if anything is clogging it. The cover twists off.
