Access to Filter

I have the Belling SGE12x which has been having th eproblem of the programme knob simply clicking around when the cycle reaches the 'draining' time. After some research, one potetial solution is to clean the filter for outlet pipe. I have located this at the bottom right hand side on the front of the washer, however, for some reason I cannot open it.

I can give the filter cap a quarter turn anti-clockwise and water starts to leaks out but the cao will not turn any further, nor will it pull out. I have checked the manual and there is nothing in there about the filter.

Any ideas? I do not want to force the iflter cao in case I break it and cause unnecessary damage to it.

Re: Access to Filter

I had the same issue, part of a bra was **** in it! I had to remove the filter housing from the machine to remove the bloody thing! As the filter would only go round 1/4 turn. Here's what I did:

Roll the machine on to its side.
Using some large pliers/grips release the clips and remove the black hose from the drum and the grey waste hose from the filter housing.
Remove the two silver screws holding the housing to the front of the machine.
Turn the housing slightly to release.

I was then able to remove the part of the bra.
Then it is a simple case of carrying the above out in reverse order.

Hope this helps some one else.


P.S. If you can't turn the filter handle because something is blocking it don't be tempted to use any tools to turn it (or you'll end up with half a handle like me!) ;-)

Re: Access to Filter

I had the same problem and found that it was a penny caught up in the filter cap which extends into the machine as a sort of cage. I solved the problem by turning my machine on its side which dislodged the penny from the cage and alowed me to undo the cap. Hope this is of help. Andrew.

My Belling integrated washer drier will tumble ok but there is no heat. Is this easy to fix?


If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows sometimes it is still not working properly.

if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....

If you have an electric dryer, you can have many different things that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.

check out this electric no heat tip...

Fliter cap at front of machine leaks water

Remove filter, and thoroughly clean the seal and inside the filter housing.
If it still leaks, then you you are going to have to replace the filter seal if a seperate item, or the filter itself.

Belling SGE12X broken door handlw

it's not an easy job to replace a door handle, but to release it for the door to open, turn off the machine at the outlet and unplug. Take the top of the machine off and slide your hand down to the door catch. Depending which type of catch it is, you should either be able to push down a small lever on top or push up a small lever on the bottom or the door catch.

I hope this helps

Timer clicks arround and arround

My Belling integrated washing machine will not stop at the end of the cycle. My partner had accidently moved the dial during mid-cycle. We have tried to reset the machine by turning it off and then moving the dial around to the stop section of the dial. However when we turn it back on it waits for a while and then continues to click around with starting any cycle. Can anyone help? Thanks.
