Spa filters are put into a spa one of two ways. They have threads on the underside of the filter element and thread into place by unthreading it or the filter is simply pressed into place and to remove it you just pull up. It can be fairly heavy either way because all those pleats hold quite a bit of water when initially pulling it out of the water.

How do I open the filter cover on my machine .it came with the house. it seems stuck solid.please help regardsmary

Assume its a washing machine. If stuck solid it is probably scaled up. I had this problem,and managed to unscrew it using a plumbers wrench. You will hear a crack as the scale breaks up, and can clean thoroughly once removed. I replaced my filter, only 3 quid on ebay. Now cleaning it monthly !

I do not seem to be able to undo the filter on my whirlpool washing machine, does it just unscrew, or unscrew and pull. I can unscrew it, but it does not pull out.

Hi, Unplug the machine. Take a cake pan and put it under the handle for the filter. Unscrew counterclockwise slowly. Water will start to come out. When pan is partially full, retighten filter and dump water. Repeat until no more water comes out. Then completely unscrew filter and pull out and clean. Hope this helps.

I have a Zanussi ZFW1221W machine and I suspect that the pump impeller/filter is clogged as it has never been cleaned and out and the machine started to refuse to spin and now won't drain. I have followed...

It should come out completely to clean it.
There is probably something stuck in the filter, that is preventing it from pulling out.
Try moving it from side to side as you unscrew it, and keep on doing this until it comes out.

Cleaning the pump

The filter is part of the screw cover, there is probably something stuck in the filter that is preventing it from pulling out.
Make sure you have unscrewed it as far as it will go anti-clockwise, and try pulling it at the same time to loosen it.

Cannot unscrew housing around water filter seems stuck,

Open the freezer side and turn ice maker off. Leave freezer side open and try unscrewing the filter housing again. It will still be snug but keep turning and it will come off. Mine was stuck too but this worked. Good luck.

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

Refrigerator side freezing

kjn, I think what happened here is that the automatic damper assy. is stuck in the open position. This is why everything froze in the refer area. This includes the water filter and cartridge. I would unscrew the filter cover and see if it's frozen in there. If you find the filter frozen, take a hair dryer and go over it lightly until it will unscrew. After that you will have to check to see if the damper is stuck. You should be able to hear it open and close by turning the control on and off. Or get a mirror and hold it at an angle in back to see the gates. Part number for the damper motor is 240440701. Not that hard of a job...Catriver.
