Introduction

This guide will show you how to unclog the filter in a Samsung Samsung 3.7-cu ft High-Efficiency Stackable Front-Load Washer with Steam Cycle (model WF350ANR). The purpose of this fix is to help the washer’s water filter keep clothes clean and to prevent clogging from lint or hair. You should clean your washer’s water filter every 3 to 4 months. A clogged water filter can result in problems such as clothes being soaked after the final spin cycle.
