You do not need to clean a drain pump. After you have washes so many loads of clothes, soap scum builds up in your tub and will shorten the life of your product. You just need to run it thru the "clean" cycle. You can use 1/2 cup of bleach and NO detergent or you can by a tub cleaner from most grocery stores or Walmart and use that. It'll just remove any soap scum and mineral build-up off your tub. It should be done each time you washer tells you to do it. Hope this helps. :)

    If you don't have a clean tub setting on your tub here are some instructions:
    1. Wake your washer ip by pressing any button.
    2. Turn to Handwash, press start and press cancel.
    3. Press any button to wake your washer up again and immediately hold down the Eco friendly and control lock buttons at the same time. You'll have to hd them for more than 5 seconds for it to work, but it will eventually.
    4. When the screen changes (see below) add your cleaner and start it up.
    Good luck!!

    Be patient because it doesn't always work the first time you try it. It will say "system clean 41 minutes" when the screen changes, by the way.

Hi sjcolpitts,

I believe you may only need to clean the Drain Pump filter, please follow my Tip on the below Link for the whole process:

ACCESS, DRAIN & CLEAN THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER...

Electrolux front load washing machine ew10001 spin cycle slow on "SPIN" setting runs fine through regular wash setting? any ideas?

Hello jamespeattie - Does the washer making a humming noise? If so, either the drain hose may be kinked or the drain in the house is clogged. Once you have confirmed and cleaned the hose and if issue continues contact a professional to move forward accurately. The unit may possibly have a faulty pump or control board.

Water was not draining from tub. Read to remove front panel and clean out the filter. How do you get front panel off without denting machine?

Electrolux in their wisdom seem to have discontinued the lower front access panel.To avoid removing the complete front panel You can try this: Remove the back-panel and try to remove the clamp which holds the Hose( coin trap, tub-to-pump) to the tub. If the clamp is a spring-type and You can't reach the end to decompress it You can tilt the washer to the right side(seen from the front) and reach it from underneath. It worked for me.

My electrolux frontload washer seems to be stuck on the "drain" cycle. It is making a loud buzzing noise and will not drain or perform any function.

Hi

Loud buzzing sound is coming from drain pump. It is due to a clogged drain pump or a drain filter or a kinked drain hose. To resolve the issue you'll need to clean the drain hose, inspect if the drain hose is plugged. If the hose is fine, then remove the front kick panel and access the drain pump and filter, if you are unable to find the pump and filter remove the back panel as well and trace the drain hose to the bottom of the tub. There is a drain filter connected with the drain pump. It usually gets clogged, and needs to be cleaned every 6-8 months or so. The drain filter is a small white filter connected to drain pump with a hose. If it still doesn't work then you'll need to check the connections of the drain pump, check the electrical connections with a multimeter.

Hope this helps... Please post back if you need more information.

Bra underwire stuck

disconnect from electricity. take back panel off.you will see heater at bottom of tub held in by 1 10mm nut.disconnect wires to it. loosen this nut and pull heater out - you may have to help it with a screwdriver. you can then see into the gap between tub and drum and fish for the bra wire.
tell her not to wear bras with wires!!
