Filter is located in the big hose from the drum to the pump, called the sump hose
Access is via a removable panel at the rear of the washer. remove hose and clean filter.

SMELLY washing machine

First i hope you have cleaned out your filter. For the smell: Switch from liquid to powder detergent, no fabric softner, not necessary. Clean the big gasket with detergent and run a half load (without clothes of course) very hot cycle with 2 cups of vinegar only. Leave the door open whenever possible. This helps in drying out your washer and preventing mildew. Shut your wall water valve after your wash

Click helped if really helped.

There is a product called washer magik and is designed specifically for the problem of smell. The rubber bellows, or gasket, is notorious for causing that to happen.

every now and again it is recomended thatyou put it on the hotest wash with nothing in it because the inner drum builds up with lime and all the dirty soap sticks to the lime thats what makes it smelly surguest you do thi but get some lime cleaner for washers you can get this at b&q or any hardware store put it in and do the hot wash

Bad smell coming from washing machine

It probably is related to your drain outlet, depending on the set-up, I would suggest you remove drain hose and clean the place where the drain hose enters the drain system, if possible, clean all associated pipework
Please rate my solution.

My hotpoint few10 washing machine wont work,it wont come on at all and none of the lights at the front come on

On some front load clothes washers, the door has a safety interlock switch that prevents the washer from operating if the door is not fully closed (or the door / safety interlock switch is not aligned or broken.)

I would check that first. Please report back, OK?

Smelly drum

use a whole bottle of just straight bleach in machine and a cup of cascade dish washing liquid dont put clothes with it run threw a complete cycle do this twice then run load of whites aftwards just whites so you dont bleach clothes
this will kill the soap build up mold
fabric softner is the worst for creating smells try to avoid using fabric softner
