Washer Filter Plug Kit 285868. Is this the part I need for my washer for the lint problem?
Answer Debbie, your model does not use the washer filter plug kit part number 285868 as your model does not have a filter plate. Thanks.
Shane's washer sounds exactly like mine where the filters seem to be under the tub. However, your answer doesn't say anything about removing the tub. Please clarify if tub needs to be removed and how easy it is to remove the tub (question mark). I'm getting anxious to fix the lint problem and avoid buying a new unit only because of lint problems. Otherwise your video was helpful. Thank you
Answer Hello Stephen,
You can remove the tub by pulling the softener cup, (if equipped. If not, remove the agitator cap), and remove the bolt under the moisture cover. You then pull the agitator out and remove the spanner nut. When it is removed, you can then pull the spin basket. Be sure to keep up with the agitator clip and washer for re-installation during re-assembly. This is not really necessary since you can eliminate the lint production by adjusting your usage habits. This is simply done by decreasing the amount of detergent used and decreasing the wash time for each load. These two things have been proven to be the source of lint production in all styles of washers.
