Introduction

This guide shows you how to clean the filter of your Samsung Washing Machine (Model DC68-02807A-03) to ensure your washer lasts longer and works more productively.

A washing machine filter traps all sorts of dust, lint, and loose hair from your clothes. However, overtime as the filter accumulates all this unwanted stuff and is not cleaned out regularly, your machine will function less effectively and clothes won’t be washed properly. If your washing machine is not working and cleaning your clothes as effectively as it should, the most common reason is that your filter needs to be cleaned.

Before spending so much money on repairing your machine, check to see if your filter is free of any debris. Often times just regularly maintaining and cleaning out your filter ensures that your washing machine works as well as it should!
