The best way is to remove the pipe to the pump then slowly remove bits then the filter will come out
be gentle do not force it

Bosch WFVC544AUC won't spin, can't get filter out

If the washer won't spin or agitate,

1. Check the drive belt. If the belt is broken or if it isn't tight on the pulleys the washer won't spin or agitate properly.
2. Or, the drive motor might be defective. This is not common. Check all of the other related parts to this symptom before replacing the motor. If the motor is visibly burned out or physically damaged, replace it.

Hello: If you car is a 4 cylinder engine,with the hood open, stand on the drivers side facing the rear of the car, look down, (you may have to remove the top plastic cosmetic cover, toward the end of the engine about midway down you will see a bulge and on the top will be a plastic cover with a nut cast into the cover. (remove it, counterclockwise to remove) The filter is under the cover, it will come out with the cover. It is a paper element type, not the can type that screws on.

My bosch dishwasher will not drain and makes a humming noise

Humming noise is an indication of your drain motor getting power but not spinning. Either your drain pump is defective and needs to be replaced, or something is stuck in the pump preventing it from draining out the water. Either way you will have to take the dishwasher out and get at the pump from the bottom of the machine.

Unable to unscrew/open the drainage filter at the bottom right-hand corner in order to see what is causing the new vibratory noise there. The machine seems to be working ok. It sounds like a piece of...

Hi from retired Englishman in France @ 13:25 Thur!

I had EXACTLY the same problem with our Bosch filter- stuck in solidly.
We suffer from very hard water here in the countryside of SW France and the filter was caked with calcium.

What I did was to squirt anticalc liquid around it and managed eventually to turn the cover but the filter remained inside. With our Bosch the filter attaches to the cover simply by a rubber ring in the cover and the end of the filter sits over this ring. I then did the same -anticalc- into the filter and gradually kept gently turning it until it came free.
Now if you are still unable to turn the cover (you filter may or maynot be 'attached' to the cover) there are 2 possible sollutions;

1) try putting a sachet of propriatory washer cleaner/decalc powder into the drum direct then add a kettle-full of HOT water into the drum. Close it and leave it overnight. In the morning run a quick spin. Certainly this will have removed calc from the heating element- making it more efficient- and it MIGHT aid the removal of the filter. I actually put 2 sachets of powder in ours and took nearly an hour to finally remove the filter- with added anticalc fluid.
You may have to do this more than once.

2) As a last resort you may have to force the cover off with or without the filter. Apart from the obvious damage to the cover the filter/cover seating could also be damaged.

The main point is that it is necessary to clean the filter regularly, 'regularly' depends on how badly blocked it becomes with calc and other material- which reminds me........!!!

Best of luck,

Water in bottom of bosch dishwasher will not drain. How do I get this water to drain


Dishwasher not draining issue occurs due to kinked drain pipe, clogged drain filter or drain pump. Check the drain hose for any visible clogging, remove if present. If no visible lint is present then remove then turn off the dishwasher and remove the drain hose and check for any visible clogging. If still not visible then the drain filter or drain pump is clogged and you'll need to clean the drain filter and drain pump. To access the drain pump, please follow the procedure---
1. Drain pumps are mounted to sumps in the front of dishwashers --they're easily accessible from the front of dishwashers by removing toe kicks.
2. Tools needed: small flat blade screwdriver (for unlocking terminals).
3. Remove toe kick/base cover, pull up terminal cover and disconnect wires (using screwdriver to unlock locking terminals).
4. To remove pump, pull latch (on circular collar) & rotate pump clockwise (cw).
5. To install new pump, insert @ 2:00 position & rotate counterclockwise (ccw).
6. Clean water & debris from base, then check float operation.
7. Connect wires, then install base cover & toe kick.
Please note that dishwashers don't drain out the complete water such that heating element doesn't overheat. Hope this helps... Please post back for any further assistance.

Where is the jack in a 2004 Honda Odyssey

Open the tailgate. Remove the cargo net.
The tools and jack are behind a cover in the cargo area on the driver’s side. Remove the cover by turning the handle counterclockwise, then pulling out the cover.
Take the tools out of the storage compartment.
Turn the jack’s end bracket counterclockwise to loosen it, then remove the jack.
Hope this helps you find it.

Cannot remove pump filter cover -Bosch Exxcel 1400

Before removing the filter have you drained the excess water with the drain hose to the left of the filter? The filter cap should turn around 1/4 to 1/2 turn so the best option is to close it again and then repeatedly try opening it with a little more force each time. The black plastic cage could affect the removal of the filter and once removed if it is damaged you may need to replace it. These are available via most domestic appliance spares stores or directly from Bosch. Once removed check for any black plastic debris in the filter housing and chamber.

Bosch washing machine leaks at right bottom

The part that you removed, was the pump filter, the pump is located behind the filter, possibly, the pump itself is leaking, or the filter cover is not fastened in tight enough, pr the filter seal is defective, if after tightening, it still leaks, suggest you replace the pump.
