welcome back to ManageMyLife.com! I'm glad to hear that your washer is working once again. Remember to only use HE detergent and only the recommended amounts. Too much soap in the tub will cause the suds issue. To check your drain, follow the instructions below.
SAFETY NOTICE: Be sure to disconnect power to the appliance before performing any repairs. If you are not comfortable with doing any voltage checks that might be recommended, please contact your local service provider for repairs. Be aware that there could be sharp edges inside the appliance that could cause cuts or other injuries to yourself or others.
1. Unplug the washing machine or remove the power supply at the circuit breaker or fuse, whichever is easiest.
2. Crouch down in front of the washing machine and remove the screws along the bottom edge holding the kick panel in place. Pull the panel off the washing machine to reveal the drain filter assembly.
3. Place a shallow container beneath the cap of the pump filter; water trapped in the pipes will spill out when the cap is removed, so have a towel close by. Twist the pump filter cap and pull out the filter assembly.
4. Look in the filter for trapped objects, lint and other debris. Wash any pieces of fabric off under warm running water. Look inside the appliance where the filter normally sits before you lock the assembly back into place.
5. Screw the kick panel back and check the drainpipe behind the appliance for kinks or twists. The pipe should run straight from the back of the washing machine to the nearest sink or standpipe.
The manufacturer also recommends cleaning your washer once a month to prevent any build up in the machine. I have included a link to our PartsDirect page where you can purchase the part you need to clean your washer. Just click the blue link below to be taken to the page.
