Question about Washing Machines
I had same problem, broke the grip on the filter cap. This is how I was able to get around the problem. Gently tapped in a screw sideways into the opening, the screw was slightly bigger than the opening. Then with a pliers I was able to grip and turn, the screw fell out a few times but got there in the end, ordered new filter cap. Job done!

SOURCE: Inside of Washer Smells
often in washing machines there is a drain trap which needs cleaning out from time to time, (usually accessible from the front behind a removable facia) The manual should tell you how to clean this. you need to drain the water first (as there is often a little water still in the system). if you look on the program dial there is often an item that has an arrow pointing down, this should be the drain program, after this is done you can remove the draining cover and clean the workings inside, hopefullt this will solve your problem :)

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!!

If you have located the fliter, then grasp the filter cover, and twist and turn to the left to remove the filter
Please rate my solution.
