Question about Washing Machines
Plug off the mains from the wall. Take out the exit hose from behind washer to floor level to drain out excess water. Raise up your washer slightly or feel for 3 screws right under the front, bottom. Unscrew these and pull down - you will find the lint trap and filter. (You may find a hose capped here for excess water, if not -as above for excess water) Be prepared for water. Clean out and refit. See that the exit hose is fitted at correct level after the job. Your filter and pump shd be checked according to your usage.

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!
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!

Testimonial: "Thanks I did try it but it still wouldn't come off. I took it to the repair man. A sock got caught in the filter system. "

SOURCE: My washer did fill, but
If it can't drain, it won't spin. There may be something preventing the pump from draining in the Pump filter. You will need to clean it.
Please follow my below Tip on how to do it:
ACCESS, DRAIN & CLEAN THE DRAIN PUMP FILTER

Possible fault with the program controller unit. You need to check the program cycle outputs using a multimeter connected to measure the output voltage. On start the inlet should open and then close as the water level sensors works and then proceed to wash. So this much seems OK. Now in the next step the drain valve must open to drain off, then fill once again with the inlet working and water level being sensed. If there is no output in this section cycle then the prrogram controller has errors within the memory . You can remove the panel and reset all connectors and connections.

Remove the back cover and later the drum drain pipe. If a filter is present, dismantle and clean out. Most often the cause is a object that that is hindering the operation of the spinning pump. Dismantle and clean the pump.
