If there is enough room put a large adjustable or water pump pliers on the cover,i used the adjustable and put a screwdriver through the hole in the end and very gently applied pressure until in moved, I sprayed a little lube in the space between the cover and housing and it came off much easier then. There was so much debris in the trap and it stinks really bad, a large dish is needed under the cover as a lot of water will come out. Clean out the trap and reassemble using vaseline or grease to help the o ring seal.

Is there a filter on this model

Of course. The filter is located in the pump behind 'front' bottom panel. Disconnect power, remove the three screws attaching the lower front access panel to the cabinet then pull the panel down and off the cabinet. You can prop up the bottom front edge of the washer or cushion and lean it against the wall to access and remove the screws more easily. Once the panel is off, remove the filter by turning the knob counterclockwise. Be prepared for a lot of water, catch it in something to prevent more work. Clean the filter from any debris that prevents water from draining out properly. Front loaders hv filters, top loaders don't. Don't forget to click that you are helped!
