Hi.It may be that these machines dont actually have a lint filter,they are making alot of them without lint filters now days.There would be a button trap down at the side or the rear i would imagine for cleaning out debris such as coins,hair pins,Etc.

Check the hose clamps on the bottom. Sometimes the clamps are not all the way on or tight enough. I saw one that did the same thing.

EDIT: one of the mounting screws on the bottom of the tub will create a "tear" (or another word that rhymes with track) in the tub (Fixya says "The word $@#%^ is considered as profanity on Fixya. Please review your answer and try again").

I used a plastic soldering iron from Harbor Freight and cut a piece of the plastic webbing off the tub to "solder" the hole shut on the tub.

I tried replacing the motor and this problem persisted to me. I spoke to a service technician who has encouraged me to replace the sequenser but I'm hesitant

Yes it sounds like it is. Threads are worn or damaged. Also make sure you have a rubber seal in the end of the hose to stop the leak. Get a new inlet valve fitted.

slide the tape covered screw driver or plastic spakle knife to pop off the lid, from the two clips in the front. Once that opens pop off the back and under the main washer deliver, you can see the door closed switch.

Hello Michael;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

It sounds like your system just needs a good cleaning. Soap film will build up on the draining system components. You need to clean your float and insure it moves freely and makes contact with the float switch which turns on the pump. You may also need to disassemble your pump for cleaning.

There are products available for cleaning clothes washers, but these need to be used on a regular bases. I do not think they can clean enough to solve your current problem. Use after you have cleaned.

If it breaks could you use a metal hose clamp?

My washer did not come with the Lint Filter. I contacted Haier Customer Service and sent them all the info they requested such as copy of receipt and etc. That was several weeks ago and Haier still says that they have yet to receive that letter. Or they say that due to high volume of warranty letters they receive, they have yet to process it. Anyways, I got fed up with the customer service or lack of, I started surfing the web for the lint filter and found the above site. The filter is very inexpensive and I got it in several days.

If it drains OK during wash and rinse cycles, then the controller is not turning the pump on for some reason.

You can buy the lid at encompassparts use p/n:WD-4250-11
but replacing it will be difficult. You have to remove the entire top but I have seen one replaced without going to all the trouble. It's hard to explain but you have to angle it a certain way and get the pins installed but if you don't want to risk breaking it, buy an aftermarket warranty from Sears and have them break it. For 80. dollars they will cover all the machine repairs for one year any problems.

First of all this mainly happens when you use cold water washing, the plastic bowl(s) become slightly porous over time & the dirt from clothes adhere to the area between the inner & outer bowls.

To clean & remove smell.

1. Put washer on hot wash, high level & let it fill with HOT water.

2. Stop washer, put in an old towel.

3. Add a bucket of hot water (This allows the water level to be above the scum mark inside machine.

4. Add washing soda to the bowl (double the amount it says on the packet).

5. Start washer & allow to run to the end of the first wash cycle.

6. Stop washer & allow to sit for a few hours.

7. After the few hours, start washer & allow it to run the rest of the full cycle.

you can do the same procedure with Vinegar.

you may have to repeat procedure a few times.


The worst case scenario, you will have get a technician to remove the inner bowl & manually clean these areas.
