Lint Filter ?

Happy New Year... I have a Splendide 2100 W/D combo in my 2004 M/H.
Two questions.
1. What is the approximate water usage for a wash cycle? I realize that the cycle selected will alter the amount somewaht. Just an average.

2. Where is the lint filter? Is there one? I know in the old stick built home I needed to clean it after about each drying load.

I have read the manual and see nothing about either.

Very little water. No filter that I know of. The manual may give you info on water usage.

There is no lint filter, but there is a pump pre-chamber that needs occasional cleaning to get the stuff that falls out of pockets into the washer. Your manual shows it - it's that round access port in the lower right corner, behind the bottom trim panel. See Page 21 of your 2100XL manual.

I ran into this about a week ago while camping at Bastrop State Park in Texas. Pulled out the manual so that I could pin point a lint filter for the unit and it does not have one. It says that it uses 16 gallons of water for a complete cycle, and 10 lbs of clothes for the unit max.

Just removed the prechamber and cleaned it. Be aware that quite a bit of water will come out as you unscrew this.

It might not have a lint filter but it can. If it does, it will be on the rear of the machine, up towards the top where the vent hose is, on the left side as you are looking at the machine.

FYI, my installation in a Country Coach does have a lint filter.

Water usage depends on the cycle selected and the size of the load. We occasionally do a load of wash near the end of a short stay where we have electric only hookup, and by my calculations, we use about 12 to 15 gallons of water for a load. If conserving water, do not select pre-soak or extra rinse.

Newer Splendides do not have a lint filter, but there is a bottleneck in the vent system that can collect lint. Last year, our Splendide was not drying, so I removed and cleaned the entire flexible vent hose. Still no joy. Digging further, I found the rubber connector between the drum and the washer housing where the hose attaches was packed solid with lint. After I removed the rubber connector and cleaned it out, it was like having a new dryer.
