Newish ( a few months old ) washing machine is stinky. I need to clean the filter I guess. My old washing machine had a little door on the front at the bottom, which pulled out. This one doesn't and I can't find the blinkin' instructions anywhere. Can anyone tell me where the filter is on this machine please??

jsut had a quick look at the machine, does the bottom bit at the front come of do you think? otherwise it must be round the back which will be a NIGHTMARE for us hmm i will have to find the booklet, just found the one for my hotpoint tumbledryer, but not the washer........

I have this one is it the same one? If so the filter is at the bottom on the front. You have to pop the bottom part off.

oh the filters can be very tight, you might need a pair of grippers to get it out BTW.

that looks similar to mine only mine is white, the front bottom bit looks the same, so you take that off, i just tried and it seemed stiff but our machine is new and i havent done it before.

mine isn't an aquarius but i took the bit off the front and undid the red button (with a big hand and electric shock pic on it). there was nothing behind it at all.

Thanks everyone - so, the whole front bit comes off? Sorry, I'm confused!

i think that yes the long thing front bit comes off, it goes across the whole of the front of the washing machine at the very bottom. i havent filled with ours as it seems stiff and i still cant find my booklet hmm

There is no "Filter" on this machine, but there is a coin/small object trap hidden by the bottom font panel . To get to it push down and pull out the front panel, you will find the cap to remove, a few cups of water will drain out so be ready with a towel or tray to catch it.
