Hi, welcome to Just Answer. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you! I suspect you misunderstood the installer or were misinformed. You only need to clean that filter periodically to remove things that get into the wash that should not. That filter catches debris before it gets into the pump impeller. If you are careful about checking pockets, it will not require cleaning very often, maybe once a month or less. To clean it after every few loads is not necessary, unless you are retrieving a lot of items not designed to go through the washer. The water that comes out is normal, the water cannot be totally pumped out once the bulk is drained and air enters the pump.
See page 20 at the link below. Is this what you are draining?
