Ge front load washers have a drain pump filter.  This filter is located behind the washers lower access panel.  Three small screws hold the panel in place.  With the screws removed, the washers access panel will slide down and off.  The drain pump filter is inside the drain pump housing. To remove the washer drain pump filter twist the handle counter-clockwise on the front of the pump.  Pull the filter out and clean.

If the washer is full of water, either use hose clamp pliers or the bail the water out of the tub before the filter is removed. Ge and other similar manufactures use drain pump filters on their front load washers.  This prevents stuff from getting past the drain line and into the drain pump impeller to damage the washer.  Having an appliance repair technician out to make this repair would cost around $150 dollars.  If you have found this information helpful, leave a comment below.
