    Default AWN432SP Speed Queen top loader - how to remove the filter screen on the water inlets?

    Model Number: AWN432SP
    Brand: Speed Queen
    Age: 6-10 years

    Filter screen on the water inlet is clogged and needs to be replaced. The screen is recessed 1.5-2 inches into the water inlet connection port.

    Service manual troubleshooting chart says "clean or replace screen", so presumably, the screen comes out, but how?

    Do I drive a flat screwdriver through the screen and twist and pry the screen out?

    Hi,

    Sometimes these screens can get plugged and will need to be cleaned out with a old tooth brush. Just shut off the water, remove the hot and cold fill hoses and clean out the screens on the entrance of the fill valve. When ever possible, you should try not to remove the screens from inside the fill valve entrance.

    If the screens are just too clogged or if you have removed them, install new screen-washers in the fill hose end to prevent junk from getting inside the fill valve.

    If all attempts to clean the fill valve has not helped the fill pressure. Sometimes the fill valve can be damaged and this is why it won't fill as fast as it used to, you may have to replace the fill valve.
