Welcome to FixYa.

To clean the pump on your washer, If you direct your attention to the bottom right side of your Bosch you'll see a small round cover like so...

how to remover washer pump - eb32373.jpg
With the aid of a small screw driver, knitting needle, or anything small enough to fit in the small hole in this cover...


It will push in a tab, it doesn't take much force.

Rotate the hole (clockwise) to 6'oclock and it should come free, the edges are very sharp so be careful.

Once the door is out of the way you'll be greeted by a 3-4" plastic cap with wings so you can unscrew it by hand. ( you should also see a red ring with a string attached, if you pull this the door should unlatch, but getting the water out first is usually a good plan )

There is a small collector lip at the bottom of the cap, that is where you can hold the wet/dry vac to catch the water. Unscrew slowly so you don't get flooded, until it is unscrewed all the way out. 5cb2a4a.jpg
Now pull out the trap/filter and visually inspect the inside of the pump as well as the filter/trap.

That is how you gain access to and clear the filter on your Bosch washer.

Hope you found this helpful. If so please take a moment to write a short testimony and leave a rating.

Thank you for choosing FixYa, good luck.

F21 error on Kenmore washer

The F21 drain indicates a long drain. There are several reasons for the error. The most common causes are debris in the drain pump filter or excessive suds. If you aren't using HE detergent or if you use too much detergent, the excess suds may be the cause. First, remove the clothes from the washer. Try running the washer without adding more detergent.

To check the filter, you will need to unplug the washer. Next take off the bottom panel. Locate the drain pump and the adjacent filter. Have a bucket handy to catch the water from the pump. Open the filter and remove any foreign objects. Look into the pump and check for any objects that got past the filter. Remove anything that doesn't belong. See the cabinet and pump diagrams here: to help you take apart the unit and locate the pump filter. Close up the filter and try running the washer (again no clothes and no detergent). If the error does not recur, you've solved the problem.

If the F21 error repeats, then the pump or the water pressure switch could be faulty. If water has been pumped out of the washer, then check/replace the switch. You should also check the wiring between the switch and the main control board.

I hope this helps.

Where is the washer lint trap

The images below show the steps for accessing and pulling the filter on the drain pump. Unplug the washer and remove the bottom front service panel. Arrange a container to catch water that will likely flow out when you remove the filter. Remove the filter and clear any debris from the pump.

  1. Unplug the washer.
  2. Remove the 3 Torx head screws (located left, center, and right) from the front bottom kick panel of the washer.
  3. The drain/filter/pump is right in front.
  4. You can see a diagram of the pump at
  5. First remove as much water from the washer as you can. Place a large towel under the pump - a lot of water will come out when you remove the filter cover cap.
  6. Remove the drain filter cover cap by turning the filter cover cap counterclockwise.
  7. Remove the filter and check the housing and pump impeller vanes for debris (see if you can move the pumps impeller by hand).
  8. Clean the cover cap gasket and the gaskets mating surface.
  9. Replace the filter and close the cover cap firmly.
  10. Run a short wash cycle and check for any leaks at the filter cover cap. If the error comes back, you may need to replace your drain pump.
  11. Replace the kick panel if none are found.

How do I clean the washer pump filter in my GE-WCVH6600HGG?

please go through this
  • Examine if there's a problem with the filter. If the machine isn't draining, spinning or agitating, the washer pump filter may be clogged, and you should clean the pump filter. Other giveaways that the filter may need cleaning include the washer performing an incomplete cycle, the timer not advancing or the washer just not running

  • Open the pump access door with a coin. Remove the pump filter by turning it counterclockwise and pulling it out.
  • Clean the filter with your fingernails, removing all loose debris. Wash the filter under running water until it is clean.

  • Replace the filter. Insert it back into its housing, turn it clockwise and close the door.

  • i hope this helps you ,thank you

    Washer wont spin out displays 5d code


    Remove any kinks in the drain hose. Ensure that the washer is not sitting on the hose.

    Inspect the household drain. Remove clogs, if possible. Call a plumber if you cannot remove the clogs.

    Check the drain and make sure there is an air gap between the hose and drain. An air gap is necessary to prevent the drain hose from siphoning water.

    Clean the pump filter. Open the pump access door. Turn the pump filter counter-clockwise and remove it. Remove dirt and debris. Replace the filter and close the pump access door.

    Rearrange the clothing in the load. An unbalanced load can prevent the washer from spinning or draining.

    Allow the washer to cool down for two hours. If the washer overheats, it will stop the motor and cool down before restarting.

    Close the door completely. The washer will not operate if the door is not securely closed.

    I hope the above helps.

    Good luck.

    Have LG 1812 front load washer, it is making noise when water tries to drain out, we were able to drain the hose but unable to remove the drain pump filter-just spins

    Unscrew the drain pump filter counterclockwise to remove it from the pump assembly. If it cannot be removed, you need to replace the pump casing (part #3108ER1001B) and the pump filter (part #383EER2001A).

    Disconnect power to the washer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

    Remove the two screws at the rear of the top panel attaching it to the cabinet. Slide the panel rearward then lift it off the washer.

    Disconnect the control panel wiring harness from the main board assembly. Pull the dispenser drawer out until it stops then press the locking tab and pull the drawer out completely.

    Remove the two screws from the drawer opening then lift the left side of the console and pull it off the cabinet.

    Remove the three screws from the upper part of the front panel and the screw from the filter cover.

    Insert a putty knife blade or similar flat tool in both sides of the filter cover then pull it out of the cabinet. Remove the screw from the lower side of the front panel.

    Open the washer door and remove the wire and spring holding the door gasket to the outer lip of the door opening. Stretch the spring with a pair of needle-nose pliers to clear the wire off the lip of the door opening then remove the wire and spring assembly.

    Peel off the door gasket into the drum then tilt the front panel and disconnect the door switch wiring harness from the door switch terminals. Lift the front panel and remove it from the cabinet.

    Compress the spring clamps holding the pump inlet and outlet hoses then move the clamps away from the pump casing.

    Remove the two screws securing the pump to the base of the washer. Press down the tab at the back of the pump assembly and push the assembly into the washer then lift the pump assembly up and out of the washer. Remove the hoses from the pump assembly.

    Unscrew the pump from the casing and inspect the impeller for any damage. Rotate the impeller to check whether there's restriction. Replace the pump (part #4681EA2001D) if the impeller is broken or does not rotate freely.

    Install the pump assembly and reassemble the washer by reversing the given disassembly steps.

    I have a duet sport wfw8300 it does not finish cycle and it flashes F 21

    F21 = LONG DRAIN
    If the drain time exceeds 8 minutes the water valves turn off.
    Press PAUSE/CANCEL two times to clear the display.

    If you had this washer for sometime the most likely cause is Item 4. If so remove the lower front panel place a pan under the white filter (before the pump)
    remove the filter and clean and remove any foreign material and reinstall filter.


    1. Check the drain hose and make sure it is not plugged or kinked.
    2. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
    3. Check the electrical connections at the pump and make sure the pump
    is running.
    4. Check the drain pump filter for foreign objects.
    5. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
    6. If the above does not correct the problem, go to step 7.
    7. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
    8. Replace the pump.
