Question about Washing Machines
I have a ariston margherita LBE 12X washing machine and i have never cleaned the filter,the machine is 3yrs old and the drum is now quiet smelly,
i have found the filter but i dont know how to remove it,maybe you could help,i have lost the manual also. The filter will turn but wont come out it really needs to be cleaned.
I hope you can solve my problem
Many thanks iv removed bottom panel ,tried to turn anti clockwise as far as it will let me with some water coming out but no joy levering out .hope u can hlep
DO NOT keep trying to force the filter, especially not with pliers! Mine wouldn't turn, and when I eventually got it out it was because a coin was stuck in there! Rattle it left and right many times to free the coin, and eventually it will come out, but if you force it, either the plastic filter will break or the coin. Guess which?!

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
