Cleaning the Pump Filter on the Front Load Washer

It is advisable to clean the pump filter 5 or 6 times a year to prevent it from clogging. A clogged pump filter may reduce the bubble effect.

  1. Turn off the washer, and then unplug the power cord.

  2. Gently press the top area of the filter cover to open.

  3. Remove the cap from the emergency drain hose, and drain the remaining water inside the tub.

    It is recommended to lay down towels or prepare a bucket or container to collect the water before removing the cap from the emergency drain hose.

  4. Turn the pump filter knob to the left, and drain off the remaining water.

  5. Clean the pump filter using a soft brush. Make sure the drain pump propeller inside the filter is unclogged.

  6. Reinsert the pump filter, and then turn the filter knob to the right. Replace the cap on the emergency drain hose and position it back on its hook. Close the filter cover.
