Every time we wash clothes,we have to clean the filter on the back of the washer.This has to be done 2-3 times during a load! Is there anything we can do to prevent this or at least help? thanks

are you reffering to the screens in the
ends of the supply hoses?
if so take the screens out of both ends
of both hoses,reconnect the hoses to the valves in the wall,grab a 5 gallon bucket
and open one valve at a time,wide open into the bucket for about a minute or until you are satisfied in flushing all debree from the system.sometimes the screen is made onto the washer that fits in the end of the hose,
you will need to replace them temporairoly
to perform this cleaning,then reinstall.
just use regular hose washers from the hard-
ware store.
