Everything you need to know about your washing machine’s filter

The filters inside any washing machine, regardless of its type and brand, trap dirt, loose hair, and many other things while working. Thus, this part of the appliance ought to be cleaned regularly if you want to prolong the lifespan of your laundry device.

First, you need to find out where the filter is by carefully reading the manual of your washing machine. However, if you have accidentally lost the manual or can’t find it, try checking out the following washer locations where the filter may be installed:

  • At the end of the hose that drains water.
  • Behind a tiny hatch located on the front side of the appliance.

Yet, if you haven’t managed to find any filter in your washing machine, it is possible that it does not have any. There are high-efficiency washing machines that feature a filter in the pump that does not require any cleaning or special maintenance.

Once you have successfully found the filter, you should now clean it from all the dust, hair and detergent stuck there. Make sure to carefully uninstall it and soak it in the very hot water, thoroughly removing the entire residue stuck there. You can also use the cleaning brush of your choice to reach everywhere, as well as special cleaning solutions. In case you can uninstall the filter, clean it right there where it is using any practical brush soaked in warm soapy water. Keep in mind that certain washing machine filters are disposable meaning that you can install a new one compatible with your washer and remove the old one once and for all.
