Lots of debris not going away

4 posts in this topic

This whirpool model LBR2121DWO has been working fine and still is if it werent for an incredible amount of fibers dangling in the drum from a previous wash load. It seems like syntetic fibers from a carpet or something of that sort.

Is there any filter that can be cleaned or replaced by simple means that takes care of this problem.

Thanks in advance for your help

Hummm, usually in the Direct Drive W/P washer there is a filter under the spin basket, but there does not look to be one on your washer.  Do not know what to tell you except to clean it out best you can and see what was in there to cause this and avoid putting this in the washer again.

Thanks Pegi. I visited the Whirpool site and they talk about a self cleaning filter that goes under the agitator. I don't know how much of a pain it is to remove the agitator to get to the filter plate, and if this in fact will solve the problem. Any ideas?

If you have a filter, and it did not show one under your SPIN BASKET, they started leaving them out 2-3 years ago, you would have to remove the case off of your washer, remove the agitator, remove the splashguard, then remove the spin basket, since this is where the filter would be located if you do have one, but it does not show in in your breakdown on the Sears site. The filter is not under your agitator.  You could remove all of this to see if they left out the filter in the parts breakdown on Sears.
