We have the above washer and have an F9E1 error code that suggests the unit isn’t draining properly. Took off the back to check drain/filter and the filter is facing the front of machine, all the way at front (not accessible from back). The front appears to require the control panel to come off, door seal to come off, and door to come off in order to pull off the panel that allows access the filter. This seems crazy! Our old front loader just had four screws and a small panel at the bottom to reach the drain and filter. Am I missing something? Thanks in advance!

You are correct, they made it extremely difficult to get access to the drain pump filter on this model, why I don't know. You will need to remove the top panel and the front panel.

Here's the drain pump for your model: W11316609

Here's the service manual that shows you how to get access to it: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1mZZJF9jfgwd3bLqMND45js9JqCu0-aQj
Page 4-22
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power.
2. Turn off water supply to washer.
3. Disconnect hot and cold water inlet hoses and remove the drain hose from the standpipe or laundry tub.
4. Perform the procedures on page 4-2, “Removing the Top Panel” prior to performing the following steps.
5. Perform the procedures on page 4-17, “Removing the Front Panel prior to performing the following steps.

Thank you so much for your reply and the info. What a major drawback for this machine. We cleaned out the filter every few months with our old machine. Our washer and dryer are stacked so this will be time consuming- but we’ve got time right now! Thank you again.

Yes I agree, they should of left the drain pump filter where you could still get easy access to it like your old one.

Let us know how it goes.

It worked! Your directions were great. Thank you so much. Just ran a laundry load through and it drained properly. Thank you so much!
