Drain pump filter on front loading washing machines has to be checked monthly and cleared of any objects that might be in there, usually its coins, bobby pins and what ever is left in the pockets. If you do not check it monthly and debris build up inside the filter it might become impossible to unscrew it and drain hoses would need to be removed to clear the filter internally.

1. Drain pump filter door is located on the front panel near the floor. Open it.
2. Some washing machines have a small rubber hose right next to the filter plug to slowly drain out any remaining water. Pull the plug out of the hose and drain remaining water into a small container.
3. Turn the drain pump plug anticlockwise to open it and pull it out completely.
4. Look inside the drain pump housing to make sure no debris are left behind.
5. If need to, wash the filter in the sink.
6. Put the filter back into the chamber and turn it clockwise to close it. Also don\'t forget to plug the small drain hose if you opened that as well.
7. Close the drain filter door.

And the machine is ready to be used again.
