Hi,

Welcome to FixYa.

The filter is located in the front near the bottom, follow below for a complete »"how to".

**Unplug the washer or turn off your breaker before servicing the washer...safety first**

To check and clean the pump on your washer, If you direct your attention to the bottom right side of your Bosch you'll see a small round cover like so...

where is the filter please - - eb32373.jpg
With the aid of a small screw driver, knitting needle, or anything small enough to fit in the small hole in this cover...

It will push in a tab, it doesn't take much force.

Rotate the hole (clockwise) to 6'oclock and it should come free, the edges are extremely sharp so be careful.

Once the door is out of the way you'll be greeted by a 3-4" plastic cap with wings so you can unscrew it by hand. ( you should also see a green or red ring attached to a metal clip on the pump, if you pull this the door should unlatch, but getting the water out first if present, is usually a good plan )

There is a small collector lip at the bottom of the cap, that is where you can hold the wet/dry vac to catch the water. Unscrew slowly so you don't get flooded, until it is unscrewed all the way out. There is potential for a lot of water...even if the washer looks empty.

Now pull out the trap/filter and visually inspect the inside of the pump as well where is the filter please - - cba5b21.jpger/trap.

That is how you gain access to and clear the filter on your Bosch washer.


Re-install the filter and run a test with some towels or something to check it`s performance and to insure the filter is tight with no leaks before putting the cover back in place.

If this answered your question, awesome. If not let me know and I`ll try and help further.

Hope you found this helpful. If so please take a moment to write a short testimony and leave a rating.

Thank you for choosing FixYa, good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

I'm using whirlpool mastermind chrome split ac.. clean filter light started blinking so i cleaned and replaced the filters but still CLEAN FILTER light is blinking. please give a solution


If you didn't turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF, before removing the filter. That is the problem. To clear the error message. Turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to OFF, unplug the unit, remove the filter and reinstall it. Wait 10 minutes, plug the unit back in, turn the Master ON/OFF Switch to ON. The controls should have reset themselves and the clean filter light should not appear.

Hope this helped you solve the problem. Please let me know. Thanks.

Reset filter light


WATER FILTER CHANGE REMINDER
(Select Models)
For some refrigerator models featuring
water filters, the Water Filter Change
Reminder function monitors the life of the
filter and provides a reminder when it is time
for the filter to be changed.
When the system detects either 12 months
of usage, or the filtering of 416 gallons of
water (whichever comes first), the CHANGE
FILTER
indicator light will illuminate. This
indicates that the water filter should be
changed and the light reset.
To reset CHANGE FILTER light: Press and
hold the LIGHT and LOCK pads until the
CHANGE FILTER light blinks (approx. 3
seconds). The control is now reset for 12
months or another 416 gallons.
Note: The Water Filter Reminder will
operate if the filter bypass is in place.
If you want complete service manual please let me know, Oh Please rate Me, Thanks, Sea Breeze

My hitachi cpx201 projector says to check the air flow


Hi There Teacher!
the air filter unclips on the left hand side, lens facing out.
after vacumming out the filter see below for filter reset counter procedure
Good Luck!
Turn the projector on and reset the filter time using the FILTER TIME item in the EASY MENU. Before taking care of the air filter, make sure the power switch is off and the power cable is not plugged in, then allow the projector to cool sufficiently. Taking care of the air filter in a high temperature state of the projector could cause an electric shock, a burn or malfunction to the projector. Use only the air filter of the specified type. Do not use the projector without the air filter or the filter cover. It could result in a fire or malfunction to the projector. Clean the air filter periodically. If the air filter becomes clogged by dust or the like, internal temperatures rise and could cause a fire, a burn or malfunction to the projector. WARNING Please replace the air filter when it is damaged or too soiled. When you replace the projection lamp, please replace the air filter . An air filter of specified type will come together with a replacement lamp for this projector . Please reset the filter time only when you have cleaned or replaced the air filter, for a suitable indication about the air filter. The projector may display the message such as ?gCHECK THE AIR FLOW?h or turn off the projector, to prevent the internal heat level rising. NOTE (1) Press the MENU button to display a menu. (2) Point at the FILTER TIME using the ??/?? button, then press the button. A dialog will appear. (3) Press the ?? button to select RESET on the dialog. It performs resetting the filter time.

Which types of filters can be used?


Please use thin type filters to prevent vignetting on the corners. The following filters are vignetting-free. Konica Minolta 49mm AC L37 (UV filter) (Thickness is approx. 5.5mm in total, and approx. 3.4mm excluding the screw part.) Konica Minolta 49mm ND 4x filter 49mm type causes vignetting. Please use Konica Minolta filter adapter (49mm > 62mm) and 62mm Polarizing filter II (Circular) in combination.
