SOURCE: if filter cap is broken how do i open it on my bosch washing mach

I had the same problem. If it's stuck you may want a tool. I ended up using a pair of pliers on this plug. You may want to use a pair of vice-grip locking pliers and put a piece of thick metal on each side so you don't break the plug any worse (about 1/2" X 2" plate). MAKE SURE YOU TURN COUNTER CLOCKWISE! Wiggle it back and forth as you may have a wire or hairpin half in and half out of the pump filter area. It takes 2 full turns to get past the threads in order for the plug to come out. I had an underwire from a bra that gave me the worst problem. I worked on it for almost an hour. I have found change, jewelry, hairpins, BBs, small rocks, and a 4" long underwire from a bra. Please rate my solution if this gives you enough details to complete your task. THANKS!!

SOURCE: Samsung washing machine filter

it has a self cleaning filter. if you want to clean out the tub and filter thoroughly then:

  • run a cycle with no clothes using hot water and a gallon or two of bleach. 
  • after the tub has filled up add a teaspoon or less of dish liquid like palmolive. this acts like a surfactant for the bleach. 
  • make sure you also run an extra rinse cycle to make sure you have all the bleach out of the machine before putting clothes in.

SOURCE: cleaning washing machine filter

There is no filter on this machine. The gray gooey substance is sludge (dirt) build up inside the tub. This can be caused from using too much detergent or a detergent that is not HE (high efficiency).
You can try running an empty cycle using the hottest water available with products such as "washer fresh", "affresh" or a cup of bleach to remove the build up.
Remember to use a HE detergent and you only need about 2 tablespoons per regular load.
Good luck!

SOURCE: unable to unscrew cap on filter on washing machine

You should be unscrewing anti-clockwise to remove it, if it will not come out, then there is probably somethiung stuck in the filter preventing it from pulling out.

Try moving it from side to side as you are unscrewing and pulling.

How do i get my filter out of my bush a127ldw washing machine got E03 error am working my way through your list but cant get filter out


Water inlet filters
On the tap part of your machine's water inlet
hose and at the ends of water inlet valves, there
are filters to prevent entrance of the dirt and
foreign materials in the water to the machine. If
the machine is unable to receive sufficient water
although your water tap is fully opened, these
filters should be cleaned.
x Remove the water inlet hose.
x Remove the filters found on the water inlet
valves by using a pincer and wash thoroughly
with a brush. (1)
x Clean the filters of the water inlet hoses
located on the tap side by removing manually
together with the seal. (2)
x After you clean the filters, you can fit them
the same way as you have removed them.

Pump filter
The pump filter system elongates the life of your
pump, which is used to drain the dirty water. It
prevents lint to enter the pump. Cleaning of your
pump filter in every 2-3 months is
recommended. To clean your pump filter:
x Open the kickplate's cover, by pulling the
handle. (2-A & 3-A)
x Before opening the filter cover,place a cup in
front of the filter cover to prevent flow of the
remaining water in the machine.
x Loosen the filter cover by rotating it counter
clockwise and drain the water. (4-A)
x Remove the foreign materials from the filter.
x Check for the rotation of the pump manually.
x After you have cleaned the pump, fit the filter
cover by rotating clockwise.
x Put the kickplate cover into place.
x Do not forget that if you do not fit in the filter
cover properly, it will leak water.

Hi. I have a kenmore Washing Machine model 27062601 It doesn't finish the cycle. stops wen is washing, then I have to open it and start the cycle again. some times this works, some times don't. ...


Hi xochipiliti,

Before the Spin Cycle should start, all water must be drained out of the machine. If it does not start, it could likely mean the Drain pump may be clogged. Please follow my below tip on the fix:

ACCESS, DRAIN & CLEAN THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER...

If this does not help, the drain pump may be faulty.

Kind Regards

My bosch maxx stops mid cycle and the spiral icon that represents spin starts flashing. Its seems that it can not drain or spin yet the drum rotates when washing. Now i have washing stuck and i can not...


This is almost certainly a simple problem with your empty pump filter being clogged. Without knowing the model I can't be certain, but I would suggest that the empty cycle is timed and if it can't get all the water out in time because the filter is blocked and slowing the empty down, then it will fail safe and won't step on to the final spin cycle with excess water in the drum. While it's trying to get the water evacuated, you will probably see the machine doing a slow tumble for up to 8 minutes and you may also hear the empty pump running too.
You need to locate and clean the filter. Depending on the model, there is probably a round filter cap on the front of the machine at the bottom (It may be behind a small door or hidden behind a clip on panel on the bottom) Many models of this design also have a small hose to the right of the filter cap that you can pull out, remove a plug from and drain off any water in the filter before you remove the filter and get your floor wet, so take a look for this before you remove the filter and get soaked.

In the event that this doesn't work and you just want to get your washing out, you will find that turning the machine off at the wall for 20 minutes will reset it and allow you to open the door (With the power still off). IF THERE IS WATER ABOVE THE LEVEL OF THE BOTTOM OF THE DOOR, then pull the machine out and (With some help, because it's heavy!) Tip the machine backwards at about a 45 degree angle, so that the water line falls below the door before you open it.

If the above doesn

Unable to open the filter on my Beko A+A washing machine. It turns part way and then doesn't move.


Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Had the same problem with our Bosch, cap would not even turn!
Suggestions-
pour anticalc/limescale fluid into any gap there is around the cap. Empty the machine and you can switch it off providing the door is open! Then pour the contents of at least 2 sachets of proprietary anticalc powder/liquid into the drum direct together with a kettle full of boiling water. Leave overnight at the very least. The following day run just a spin cycle as then there will be no water diluting the mix. This mix will go through the filter and motor and is likely to help release the filter/cap. If you feel like it, do the overnight again. If nothing else it will ensure that the heater element is clean!
I had to spend a couple of hours gently turning the cap back and forth until it finally released its hold- but the filter did not remain attached to the cap by its rubber ring. More patience, anticalc fluid and all was revealed!
I now run an anticalc clean regularly............which reminds me..............!
If this has assisted you please consider a 4 thumbs up for the rating.
Thanks and good luck!

The clean filter light is on, where is the filter on the Whirlpool AWD3571


There is a little door set in the botton right of the front of the machine. Flip the door open, the filter is behind it (It unscrews).

Can't recall if this model has a little drain pipe that you pull out do drain off any dregs of water in the filter. If it doesn't, I usually pull the machine out from the wall and tip it back a little so the water in the filter doesn't pour out when I unscrew it. HEAVY MACHINE, if you are going to tip it backwards, have someone help you do this!

Hi our Bosch exxcel washing machine has stopped spinning and doesn't reach the end of its cycle most of the time. If it does the washing is still soaking and needs a new rinse and spin cycle after....


Hi gillsteer,

I believe your drain pump filter is just clogged. The drain pump is trying to pump the water out before the Spin cycle, but can't. Usually this is caused by a foreign object that is obstructing the impeller. See my tip on how to access, drain & clean the Drain Pump Filter:

ACCESS, DRAIN & CLEAN THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER

After this, the Spin cycle will run, after the drainage procedure. If it does not, then you may need to replace the Drain Motor. Which is a easy task.

Kind Regards :-)

Hi from retired Englishman in SW France,
Are you sure it is cross-treaded or just plain gummed up? If it is cross-threaded there is only one way to remove it- with force! Otherwise- suggestions ;- pour anticalc/limescale fluid into any gap there is around the cap. Empty the machine and you can switch it off providing the door is open! Then pour the contents of at least 2 sachets of proprietary anticalc powder/liquid into the drum direct together with a kettle full of boiling water. Leave overnight at the very least. The following day run just a spin cycle as then there will be no water diluting the mix. This mix will go through the filter and motor and is likely to help release the filter/cap. If you feel like it, do the overnight again. If nothing else it will ensure that the heater element is clean!
