Whirlpool LA6000XPW5

3 posts in this topic

I have a Whirlpool LA6000XPW5 washing machine that has the cylindrical lint filter at the top of the agitator, where you'd think they'd keep the dogs if this one had dogs.

Anyway, although the filter slips onto the top of the agitator, it's kind of a loose fit.  Sometimes while in the spin cycle, the tubular filter flies off and goes bouncing around the inside of the basket, making unseemly noises and disturbing the natives.

How can I get the filter to stay attached to the top of the agitator more securely?  I don't think anything is missing, but it's surprising that it can come off on its own.

No dogs, this is not a dual action agitator.  If you will look at the base of the filter believe you will see it is worn or broken and you will have to replace this top filter part as it is not holding tight enough onto the base.

As Pegi said, you will need to replace that filter assembly that keeps falling off. Generally these stay on pretty good and tight unless something is broken.
