How do I open the Filter on teh Fagor FWM714 iT

The filter access looks compleetly differnt to the pictures in the manual, there's a circle plastic bit at the bottom left of the machine with a horizontal slot in the middle, but since the machine is new I dont want to force this off unless I'm supposed to, tried inserting a coin in the slot and turning but it wont shift, also tried prising up from the bottom, but worried might break it.

    I finally got to the filter! Don't worry about breaking the circular plastic bit, it's just a cover. If you somehow get some purchase on it via the slot, it will twist off. It's probably stiff if it's new or has never been opened. I had to get my brother to do it for me!

    I agree that the diagrams in the manual are COMPLETELY different.

Just had same problem... Just loosen the 2 screws at the bottom and it will open easy . Use an Allen key if you don't have a French Allen key. Mind the water that will come out have a dish ready underneath the opening. Ian

SOURCE: hotpoint aquarius wf325 filter problem, not accessable??

If you are certain that your washer has no filter at the front behind the lower removable panel, it is usually held on by 3 scews which you have to undo, or just held in place with plastic lugs, then you will have to remove the lower rear cover of washer. Locate large black hose at lower right of tub, remove clip and hose.
inside you will see the plastic filter,
Remove and clean filter, refit filter and plastic ball if it has one, refit hose and clip securely, and water test for leaks.
Be careful when you remove hose as there will be water run out.

Please make sure you have it unplugged before you do all this.
Plz rate my solution, and feel free to leave any comments.

Power off the mains. The filter is located behind the silver plate at the back of the machine at the bottom. Four screws hold it on. Drain out all the water. The filter is inside the big black rubber hose attached between the pump and the main drum. Remove the plastic clip holding it to the pump unit and then the metal cir clip holding it to the main drum. Inside is a white molded cone and a big white ball which floats. You will find a lot of junk here, clean out thoroughly. To refit put white cone back inside just as you found it, at the bottom, fit ball back into the cone. Attach to the bottom to the drum and re-fasten the cir clip. Finally reconnect the gator to the pump unit and tighten the plastic clip. Check out the pump too before reconnecting.

And rate me nice pl for the free help!

There are two places a coin could be that will cause a noise. Either in the basket under the nutator or in the pump. If you hear the noise after the basket stops from the spin, look under the nutator, if you hear it during the cycle, check the pump. If you only hear the noise during the agitation, not the spin cycle, you may have a u-joint going out.

SOURCE: Cannot remove pump filter cover -Bosch Exxcel 1400

Before removing the filter have you drained the excess water with the drain hose to the left of the filter? The filter cap should turn around 1/4 to 1/2 turn so the best option is to close it again and then repeatedly try opening it with a little more force each time. The black plastic cage could affect the removal of the filter and once removed if it is damaged you may need to replace it. These are available via most domestic appliance spares stores or directly from Bosch. Once removed check for any black plastic debris in the filter housing and chamber.

Fagor F1-48W dishwasher won't fill

this must be a water flow problem to machine , id look real carefull at valves under sink or under floor of machine to see that there open and there are no kinks in hose connecting to it , other than that the one only other reason that it would not add water is that it thinks there's water in it already

I have a Chev. Aveo. Where is the air filter on this car?

Hi, you can locate the air filter by facing the vehicle head-on, the filter housing will be located in the far left side of the engine compartment. It looks like a big rectangular box with one corner missing and a big hose leading out of it.
You have to remove the cover from the air filter housing to have access to the air filter.

Need to clean filter

Hazel, I assume you want to know how to find and remove the filter for cleaning.

The filter is located behind the front air intake louvers and depending on which model you have, the filter can be accessed one of two ways. Before you attempt to remove the filter turn the unit OFF and unplug it.

1. Remove the bucket from it's holder. Look up inside the bucket cavity, just inside the unit behind the louvers and you will see a tab type pull handle. This is the handle to the frame of the filter. Pull it down and out.

2. As you're facing the unit on the fight side just behind the louvers, there will appear to be a trap type door. Open this door and you will have access to pull the filter out.

You can clean the filter in one of two ways: Vacuum it or it it's really dirty, wash it in warm soapy (dish washing liquid), rinse and dry thoroughly. NEVER operate the dehumidifier without the filter in place. Doing so, can cause damage to the unit.

Hope this helped you. Please let me know.
