This instructable will walk you through how to clean out the lint filter on your GE Adora washing machine. This is entirely doable by the end user, but the manual for the washing machine does not give these instructions, and the technical assistance number will not give you this information.
Essentially, if your GE Adora washing machine won't drain, your lint filter is probably full, and preventing the washer from fully draining.
This is something that GE wants you to pay a technician to do. That means a service call that usually has an 8-hour window. It may be a week out, as well. That leaves you with wet laundry, and out possibly several hundred dollars (not counting lost time at work).
From start to finish, this will take you about 30 minutes if you're careful and take your time.
Please let me know if your experience differs from what I've detailed, and I'll update.
Step 1: Assemble your tools.
To complete this project, you'll need a philips-head screwdriver or a nut driver, a catch basin, and a towel.
Step 2: Unplug your washing machine!
NEVER work on any appliance while it's still plugged in!
Step 3: Unscrew 3 screws that hold the lower front plate on the washer.
There are 3 screws that you need to unscrew. If you have the riser installed, they're easy to access. If you don't, they're pretty close to the floor.
Step 4: Lift off the front cover.
Once all three screws have been removed, you can lift off the front cover. The drain plug that you're looking for is in the picture here.
