How To Clean Maytag Washer Filter. In the newer models of maytag front load washers, you can access the filter by opening a panel in the front bottom of the washer. A combination of detergent, dust, hair and lint can clog up a filter pretty quickly.
Open the dispenser drawer by pulling on the handle at the base of the washer. Washers and dryers such as those by maytag have filters to catch lint. Remove the drawer by releasing the tab on each side.
