Two possibles on this model. Either behind the kick plate at front or in the pipe running from pump to drum at the drum end. Access this by taking the plate off at rear.
Thankyou for using Fixya.

Water keeps overflowing, dont know how to clean the filter or where it is .

hi, read about your problem. The filter is located at the bottom of the front of washer. If its not visible, remove the bottom kick panel. Three screws at bottom. Take a shallow pan and place under filter. Slowly turn counterclockwise and water will slowly start to come out. When pan is partially full, empty. Be sure to close filter before doing this. Keep up with this procedure until no more water comes out, then unscrew filter and remove and clean. Reinstall and put kickplate back on. Hope this helps.

Washer will not completly drain. The clothes are still really wet when the cycle has ended

I have had this washer and it has been a nightmare since day one... the problem is that your filter (catch basin is clogged) you have to unscrew the front of the bottom of the machine and you will see a round lint trap. make sure you have a bucket in front of you and beware it smells really bad... unscrew that and your golden-- dont even bother to put the front panel back on-- we have to clean our filter monthly.. good luck

Aquarius wf541. Am trying to unscrew and remove pump filter at front to clean and check for blockages as leaking water all over the floor.. Kick plate removed ok. turned filter anti clockwise as oer...

There must be something stuck in the filter, as normally it should pull straight out once you have unscrewed it.
Try screwing and unscrewing it at the same time keep twisting and pulling at the filter.
If you can't tremove it, then you sre going to have to remove the complete pump in order to clear the obstruction
Hope this helps you ..

I have a vrt ... I hope this helps.... Take of that little door on the front. Have a bucket or bowl ready. Bring down that little black hose, turn the white cap around and pull till it comes off. Drain into the bowl, turn the white filter cap counter clockwise to release some of the suction and wait till the hose stops draining. Remove cap, clean under running water w/ toothbrush. Manual says to make sure that the interior is free of anything (I wiped mine out) and then put it all back together again. Good luck

Getting an error code E20.

Below is for Whirlpool/Kenmore, u might find it helpful. Some machines have a small trap door on left front bottom, coin trap.

The filter on your pump is probably clogged with lint and stuff. You have to remove the bottom front panel, 3 torx screws underneath. The panel will drop and come off. Drain off the excess water from the drain pipe you see. The white filter cover is right in front. Get yourself a good plastic bag to collect water. Unscrew the filter cover and twist the filter out. Clean out all the stuff and put it back in carefully. Check your pump too.

On some models the filter is located ‘inside’ the big hose from the bottom of the tub. This takes more time to clean.

Indesit wil 103 filter

stale smell may be due to using liquid detergent - change to powder.

filter may be of two types. if in the front, unscrew cap and just pull. may be difficult is a foreign object like a bra wire is stuck inside.
other type of filter is in the large diameter pipe from bottom of machine to pump. take off small back bottom panel and undo this pipe at the machine end and filter is inside this pipe. pull out and clean

Washer stops working and flashes a e20 error code.

The filter from the tub to the pump was stopped up. (it had a babys sock in it). I removed the clamp at the pump and pulled the rubber hose off and pulled the filter out that way. This is difficult as I dont think it is supposed to come out that way,but it will and when you go to put it back in you have to turn the rubber hoses opening inside out or actually just push it in and force the filter back through and then pull the lip of the hose back out. Then just put the hose back on the pump with clamp and you're in business.
