We have a Mayttag washer. I read something in pinterest

Hi-I am Linda Velarde...

Hi-I am Linda Velarde and we have a Mayttag washer. I read something in pinterest about a pump-filter that needs to ge cleaned out maybe monthly. Where is that on my washer? It seems our washer has a smell all the time, even after I put one of those tablets in and run the clean cycle?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Maytag is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

It is ALY3510 291 120 120 60, also another number is ***** Type199-M-3, Maytag 9000 Series, white steam.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Hopefully!!!

Contractor's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Not really?

In the front of the machine, there is a separate panel below the door. See number 5 at the link below.

CLICK HERE

Remove the screws from the bottom of that panel and it will come off. Once off, the pump is right in the front. The filter will unscrew and come out for cleaning. See number 11 at the link below!
