For Whirlpool Filter Assembly (Part Number: AP3044335)

Hi, The filter was clogged with a "paper like" film. I completely removed the film and made sure that the sprayer arms were free of debris. With the latch sensor depressed and watching the machine fill then go to wash, I observed low pressure at the lower spray arm and no pressure at the upper spray arm. There was water movement in the basin where the filter screen is located. Is the filter screen supposed to have flow from inside the basket to the wash basin? Or is the water supposed to flow from the basin through the filter screen, then through the pump. I guess some knowledge on how the water flows through the system during the wash period and exactly how the filter screen performs would help me diagnose the problem so that I purchase the correct part(s). Thanks Again

ANSWER Hello Paul. The water goes from the sump, through the impeller, out the pump outlet, through the spray arms, and drains back into the sump through the filter. You will need to check and make sure there is enough water coming into the machine for it to operate correctly. It should fill up close to the bottom of the heater. Hope this helps.
