Assuming the filter is at the front of washer, you need to keep trying to pull it out,and then push it back in, wiggling it about at the same time, having unscrewed it anti- clockwise first..
Just keep on doing this, as there is probably something stuck in the filter, which is preventing it coming out.
The worst that can happen is you break the filter, so it might be a good idea to have a spare one handy, just in case.

My question is; the washer,model,wbvh6240 has any filter

No , all new front loads have a self cleaning filter. Therefore nothing needs to be emptied or clean. The little trap door in front of the washer is to drain it in case of a power failure when the washer is full of water. .

My washer emties as quick as it runs in and wont shut off have to unplug

If your washer is emptying like that it is because your drain hose is too low. The water is siphoning out of it.
Raise the standpipe up and get the hose up higher and you will be okay.
Now this is assuming that your pump is not running which you didnot state. If your pump is running and pumping the water out then you have problems with the timer switches and need a new timer.

I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

Asko 10505 - wash finished, door won't open

it is most likely your machine may have a draining problem. if it cant drain the water out the door wont open. if you open the small door at the front bottom of the machine you will find the little black drain hose. unplug the hose off the door and drain machine. when the machine is empty try powering on and opening the door. if still no luck you will see (in the same location) a red pull ring. undo the screw holding the ring in position and gently pull until the door releases. it would be worth undoing the button trap lid to access the pump and check for any blockages (most common coins **** pins etc) let me know how you get on.
