    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.

My Whirlpool front loading washer Model W10891955A is flashing: F3 followed by E1 What do I do to correct. I can't find that in my manual

Your drain filter is clogged. Take off the kick panel, 3 screws 1/4 inch. Make sure you have a shop vac ready or a lot of towels as there will be some water. #1. Always disconnect power to washer and turn off water to washer. Unscrew the cap on the filter, easy to find, since you have the kick panel off! Take everything out of the filter. You'll be amazed at what is in it. Also, clean up any water that has leaked in and around the washer. Screw the cap back on hand tight, put the kick panel back on, turn your water back on, plug it in and there you go! Maybe takes an hour.
Best to you.

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.

Lint will not come off clothes when washed in my older whirlpool front load washer

Clean the pump filter screen.... Remove bottom front panel see filter housing located next to pump unscrew cap by turning counter clockwise... Clean/remove debris located inside(place shallow pan under housing and remove cap slowly so you can reinstall if pan get full)... Be prepared for some water to leak out when cap is removed(could be up to several gallons depending on how clogged up it is) .

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.

If this is a whirlpool front load washer I have a model# GHW9100LW1 which has a filter at the front bottom of washer there is three screws to be removed then remove cover this should expose the water pump which has a cap on the front take hold of the grip and turn counter clock wise be sure to have a towel handy for there will probably be some water that will come out after loosening the handle all the way the filter part should pull out remove the trash and replace back in the pump note the filter will only go in one way re-tighten the nut and replace the cover that should fix the problem.
