Unable to unscrew cap on filter on washing machine

You should be unscrewing anti-clockwise to remove it, if it will not come out, then there is probably somethiung stuck in the filter preventing it from pulling out.

Try moving it from side to side as you are unscrewing and pulling.

Bosch Maxx Classic wont drain cannot open drain cap seems jared is there a correct way

The correct procedure for removing the filter is to unscrew it anti clockwise, and pull it out.
If it does not come out, then it is possible that there is something stuck in the filter, or the filter seal has swollen
As you unscrew it, try moving it from side to side at the same as you are pulling on it, then screw it back in again, and try the same procedure.
Hope this helps.

My Bosch Maxx 2000 WFO 2060 is leaking from the bottom. Could it be that a filter somewhere needs to be cleaned? If so where is the filter located?

The filter is usually located at the bottom right front of washer, sometimes behind a removeable cover, or a drop down flap.If you can locate it, then unscrew it anti-clockwise to remove and clean it.
There is also a possibility that there could be a hole or tear in the door seal so check the seal as well.
Hope this is of some help to you .

Bosch Maxx will not drain or spin. Cannot remove the filter cap located at front bottom right hand side to see if any blockage. Grrr....

Assuming you have tried to turn it anti-clockwise to remove filter, then something is probably stuck in filter, try pushing and pulling alternatively, and unscrewing at same time, if this does not work, then you are going to have to remove the complete pump with filter, and take it apart.
Please rate my solution.

Stuck filter in a Bosch Maxx WFL 2450

You have to get the filter out by any means possible, what I would suggest is that if there is any part of the filter left to get a grip of, then use a strong pair of pliers or grips, and grasp what is left of the filter cover, and try and twist and pull at the same time.
Or try and lever it out with a screwdriver or similar. one way or another, it nshould come out
If all else fails, then drill a hole in the center of cover
and leverit out that way.
Plz rate my solution.

Bosch Maxx for Kids. Not draining, drained manually (little thin pipe at the bottom) then unscrewed larger screw-cap pipe and a wire from a bra came out, plus HALF of another one... When I try to either...

Sounds like a bra disintegrated and plugged the drain pump. Last time I had this happen, I had to take the machine apart, then the outlet pump and manually remove the clothing item. Most likely a service call for you.
