Trying to remember a specific model is a nightmare, but I can tell you, its in one of Two places.
Either it is behind the bottom panel at the front (Which clips off, and if it's there, it will be very obvious) or the bad news is, if it's not behind that panel, it's actually only accessible from the rear of the machine by removing an inspection panel at the bottom of the rear of the body. Some instructions that cover both possibilities are attached for you:
If hidden behind a clip on panel on the bottom, many models
of this design also have a small hose to the right of the filter cap that you
can pull out, remove a plug from and drain off any water in the filter before
you remove the filter and get your floor wet, so take a look for this before
you remove the filter and get soaked.
If the filter is not located there, then you will
need to access the debris trap from the back of the machine. Pull the
machine out and you will see a roughly oval panel at the bottom of the rear of
the machine. Unscrew the 3 or 4 screws and unclip. Directly below the drum, you
will now see a rubber "Cup" like bulge in the black pipe, with a
plastic tube connected to a plastic pipe. The cup is held in place by a large
jubilee clip. Unscrew the clip, pull off the rubber boot to expose the debris
trap (A conical plastic cage with a ping pong ball in it) Take out the ball and
the plastic trap, clean out the debris and replace the trap and the ball (Note
that the cage may have a slot in it that locates in the rubber boot, make sure
it lines up, or it won't reassemble correctly). Now push the boot back onto the
fitting at the bottom of the drum where it came from and tighten up the jubilee
clip, making sure that it is fitted correctly (it too may have a small slot out
of it that fits around a protrusion on the bottom of the housing).
boot a tug and reassure yourself that it is secure. Replace the panel on the
back of the machine and test. All should now be well.
