    I found a broken-up underwire from a bra in my filter. It took a lot of wiggling and pulling to get the filter out!

Unscrew filter body and gently, using a pair of mole grips, wiggle and pull the filter body.
If this doesnt work the best option is to replace the whole filter assembly. You do not need a new pump though!!.
PS Cleaning the filter on a regular basis will help prevent this!!!!!

Zwf1421w fabric softener wont wash away drawer just fills with water and I ahve taken the drawer out and cleaned it and the jets.

I had the same problem, machine not taking fabric conditioner.
So removed top of machine 2 screws and with a bit of wiggling dispenser drawer whilst holding down the drum easily slipped out after undoing a few screws and a small rubber hose.
Once out just a matter of separating the dispenser draw via 10 small clips. A good soak and scrub and l blasted it through with a hose pipe jet. Reversal of above and now works a treat.

Can not take off front pannal to get to gasket as the machine is a box with no pannals only small one on the back. zanussi zwf1421w. can you help please thank you.

Washing machines are hard to open. If you have a front loader, you will need to remove the top. Unscrew the rear top screws and slide the top panel towards the rear. Once the top is open, you will need to remove the front screws from the inside! Keep track of want you are doing so you can put it back together, especially the wires. Good luck!

Cleaning the pump

The filter is part of the screw cover, there is probably something stuck in the filter that is preventing it from pulling out.
Make sure you have unscrewed it as far as it will go anti-clockwise, and try pulling it at the same time to loosen it.
