A couple of clarifications: Is the K344 the pump? To be clear, can I check the 3 items you mention solely through the bottom without removing any of the panels? As a further option, could I hold up the drain hose and fill the hose with a chemical. Would the chemical drain back through the pump or be blocked by a check valve. Can I tilt the washer forward and lay it down on its face on cushions as it is currently on a 18" concrete pedestal up against a wall?
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX a little hasty. I was able to pull the unit forward and then tilt back for good access. I will locate and try the affresh ASAP. Many thanks
