Some machines do not have an external filter.....a lot of older hotpoints for example. To clear internal filter place machine on its side.....soapbox side down because you do not want water flowing into the timer. making sure power is disconnected. Underneath the drum is your emptying pipe and and generally within this there is something similar to a plastic cup with holes in it...some machines have the cup and a plastic ball. Before taking this out inspect it closely to ensure you can correctly place it back in. A lot of times Colour-Catchers can get caught here causing the blockage. When putting the pipe back on ensure you replace it at the same angle it was and ensure the clip is back where it was, otherwise you will have a very wet floor on the first wash.

Remove washing machine filter for cleaning: How do I remove the filter on my Bosch class iXX front load washing machine for cleaning? We can turn it 1/3 anticlockwise but it won't pull out.


Something must be jamming the filter. You will need to just keep working it. If you cannot get it to open, you will need to replace the whole assembly.

I was just wondering where the filter was so i could clean it out


Most washing machines have a pump filter to protect the pump from obstructions such as coins. The pump filter should be at the front of the washing machine at the bottom left or right. It should be obvious (a square or round flap) but sometimes the filter is hidden behind the front kickstrip panel. A good washing machine filter should have retractable pipe at the side so that you can drain the water into a bowl.

The best way to find out if your washing machine has a pump filter is to read the instruction book. However, you can carefully remove the kickstrip at the front of the washing machine (if fitted) to see if there is a hidden filter. Be careful because they are often flimsy and brittle and can break easily. The kickstrip usually clips into place with about 3 tabs but as I say, they are sometimes easily broken. I usually place a small flat-bladed screwdriver between the top of the kickstrip and the casing and then gently lever downwards whilst pulling forward.

Examples of washing machines that sometimes have a hidden filter are Indesit, Candy and Hoover. Most washing machines do not hide the pump filter. Hotpoint and Creda often have a pump filter hidden in the sump hose (leading to the pump from the tub), which is not meant to be customer accessible. This is a stupid place to put a pump filter because when it gets blocked, most people are forced to call out an engineer.
Taking the pump filter out

The filter should unscrew anti-clockwise. Some unscrew until they come out and some just unscrew a quarter of a turn or so and allow the filter to be pulled out. Make sure you have at least one large towel to catch water and don't take it out at all if the washing machine still has water in the drum (see next paragraph if it has).
