Stuck filter in a Bosch Maxx WFL 2450

Hi there, Hope you can help. We have a Bosch washing machine, which had a new pump fitted a year or so ago. The machine is about 5 years old now. I used to remove the filter at the front of the machine and clean it. After it was fixed, the filter was placed back in the machine so tightly I could not twist the part at all manually. I used a spanner and the cross piece at the front disintergrated. Any suggestions in how to remove it? Will I have to cut it out somehow? I have a new part on the way here. Appreciate your time.

You have to get the filter out by any means possible, what I would suggest is that if there is any part of the filter left to get a grip of, then use a strong pair of pliers or grips, and grasp what is left of the filter cover, and try and twist and pull at the same time.
Or try and lever it out with a screwdriver or similar. one way or another, it nshould come out
If all else fails, then drill a hole in the center of cover
and leverit out that way.
Plz rate my solution.
Thanks.

Bosch Maxx (ref WFL 2450). stopped during wash and switch on


Remove the front lower panel, screws underneath. Drain off water. Be prepared for more water. Check filter for clogging. Sometimes when the load is unbalanced & the machine cannot adjust the load it stops. To avoid this make sure your wash is mixed with big and small clothes.
If this does not work remove the rear panel & check belt, should have half inch ‘give’. Still not good, remove belt, unscrew 2 bolts that hold the motor, unplug the motor connector, lever the motor back with a screwdriver. Check the motor brushes, if it is any shorter than 5mm replace brushes.

Just fixed the same problem - new brushes on ebay were only £5. Fitting the brushes was fiddly and easiest if you take the motor off, which was easy to do (just 2 bolts).
