If you have turned the filter so that it is no longer engaged in a lock position you will need to pull it fairly hard to get it out
The moulding is quite robust and unless you use pipe grips will not be damaged by hand pressure alone (Unless you are a Russian Shotputter)

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.

Clean the pump filter screen on a Kenmore HE2 Not draining

  1. Unplug machine.
  2. Remove bottom front panel(remove 2-3 screws in the bottom) Pull bottom of panel out and down to remove.
  3. Towards the center bottom you will see the pump. On the front is a round thing that resembles a filter. This is the pump filter screen...
  4. Get a shallow pan to put under screen. Turn lid counter clockwise to remove(turn slowly and allow water to drain. As you may need to dump pan several times before all water is drained out. Be careful or you could end up with water everywhere. Once the water is drained pull out screen and remove the debris and objects stuck in screen and filter housing you should also be able to see the impeller on the pump inspect for debris.
  5. Once everything is cleaned out reverse removal procedures put back together.

Water Ridge Nannini series pull out kitchen faucet rotating at base instead of where it should.

I just fixed our Nannini from Costco. The screens were plugged with plastic filings coming from our water lines. On our faucet there is more than one screen.
The pull out faucet has the basic screen like 99% of the taps out, right on the end. It comes apart by first unscrewing it from the handle and gently (gently) nudging the screen out with a sharp object such as a pairing knife.
Then in the handle was where the problem lay with mine. There was a plastic knob which is recessed in the handle. Leave the hose connected and pull it out until it is stretched or have a helper, then press on that small knob, pull and the whole inside will pull out. There is another filter in there. I was able to take mine apart and clean it, yes it does pop apart but be careful. In assembling mine I just left out the second filter totally.
I guess in hindsite you wouldn't have to actually take the whole handle apart if one has a 90 degree tool to pull out the yellow plastic piece. I used an allen wrench and pulled. Cleaned it with a small needle.

Works better than new!

Is there a filter in the 65 pint dehumitifier and if so how do i clean it!!!

Yes, there is a filter in it or it should be. Since you didn't say which model you have, it is in one of two places. Before attempting the filter removal turn the unit OFF and unplug it.

1. It can be accessed by removing the bucket and just inside the bucket holder at the top, behind the louvers on the front, you will see a tab type handle. This is the frame for the filter. Pull it down to remove the filter.

2. There will be what looks like a pull door on the right hand side of the unit, behind the louvers. Pulling straight out on that will remove the filter.

The filter can either be vacuumed to clean it or if it's really dirty, wash it in warm water & dish washing liquid. Rinse thoroughly and allow to completely dry, before reinstalling it. NEVER operate the unit without the filter installed, as it could cause damage to the unit.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know. Thanks.

How do I clean the washer pump filter in my GE-WCVH6600HGG?

please go through this
  • Examine if there's a problem with the filter. If the machine isn't draining, spinning or agitating, the washer pump filter may be clogged, and you should clean the pump filter. Other giveaways that the filter may need cleaning include the washer performing an incomplete cycle, the timer not advancing or the washer just not running

  • Open the pump access door with a coin. Remove the pump filter by turning it counterclockwise and pulling it out.
  • Clean the filter with your fingernails, removing all loose debris. Wash the filter under running water until it is clean.

  • Replace the filter. Insert it back into its housing, turn it clockwise and close the door.

  • i hope this helps you ,thank you

    Filter needs cleaning. How do I get at the filter?

    Dishwasher filters are important to catch food particles and other debris. The dishwasher cleans small portions of food from the dishes, cooking pans and silverware. These particles must go somewhere. The drainage system on the washer may clog if filters are not present. Most Maytag dishwasher models have two types of filters, "Coarse" and "Fine." You should clean the "Coarse" filter after two or three wash loads. The "Fine" filter can wait for a cleaning for about 300 loads or three months.
    jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); }); Difficulty: Easy Instructions Things You'll Need:

    • Sink sponge
    1. Empty the dishwasher. Remove all dishes including pots, pans and silverware.
    2. Pull the bottom rack out as far as possible. The filters are under the basket on the Maytag dishwashers. It may be convenient to lift the rack out. Typically, if you lift, the wheels leave the track.
    3. Remove the "Coarse" filter. This filter is a small, round knob in the middle of the "Fine" filter. A round knob is around the "Coarse" filter. Hold on to the handle and lift straight up.
    4. Knock the contents of the "Coarse" filter into the garbage can. Run the faucet to remove smaller particles. Wipe the dishwasher filter with the sink sponge if debris is stuck-on. Push back into the filter holder when complete.
    5. Take out the "Fine" filter. Turn the round knob that is around the "Coarse" filter counter-clockwise. Once the knob is loose, pull up. The "Fine" filter will come out of the dishwasher.
    6. Rinse the "Fine" filter with the hot water faucet. Scrub with the sink sponge to remove any stuck-on fragments. Replace the filter into the dishwasher. Push down and turn the knob clockwise to tighten.

    Aquarius wf541. Am trying to unscrew and remove pump filter at front to clean and check for blockages as leaking water all over the floor.. Kick plate removed ok. turned filter anti clockwise as oer...

    There must be something stuck in the filter, as normally it should pull straight out once you have unscrewed it.
    Try screwing and unscrewing it at the same time keep twisting and pulling at the filter.
    If you can't tremove it, then you sre going to have to remove the complete pump in order to clear the obstruction
    Hope this helps you ..

    I cant get the filter out of my washing machine help please

    you probably have something like a bra wire jammed in there. no option but to pull real hard with a pair of pliers.
    smell is not caused by filter. often smell is due to using liquid detergent. after you have done filter, put on the hottest wash and change to powder detergent

    Cant remove water filter


    I am guessing you know to turn the filter fully counterclockwise, to remove it.
    My first suggestion would be to turn the filter fully counterclockwise until the dead stop, then while holding the filter with one hand you would push and release quickly the water dispenser lever. The pressure should pop the filter out of its socket.
    My second suggestion is turn filter counterclockwise to dead stop, then take a very hot towel (protect your hands and to not touch towel to any glass shelves) and wrap it around the filter. This method will hopefully warm the water in the filter causing the water to expand and help push the filter out of its socket.
    My third suggestion would be more extreme. Turn the water supply off. Turn filter counterclockwise to dead stop, then drill a hole in the side of the filter to allow air into the filter to release any vacuum in the filter allowing you to pull it out of the socket.
    If none of these work then the filter socket probably will have to be disconnected so you can get it out of the compartment and get a better grip on all.
    I have never had to go that far myself.

    I hope I have helped you and please don't forget to rate me.
