Hi, welcome to Just answer
You can pour in warm water on the filter
if this won't help then please tell me its complete model number
depending on the model number you will have to either pull it out and gain access from the back or from the front
I've taken the front off the machine and can see all the motor etc. Not sure how I get at the filter from the back - will I have to take the bottom off to get at it properly?
Yes, if you can tell me its complete model number...I can tell you how to do it
I don't have much detail as machine was in house when we moved. Only serial number I can find is E-Nr. W5320X0GB / 14 FD 8509 700028
Does that help at all?
E-nr is the model number :)
a moment please
Please check this Video
just follow the instructions there and then remove the pump & both the hoses attached to it...then clean everything
let me know how it goes

Got the cufflink and put back together! All looks good but do now have water dripping out of the filter at the front. Only a few drips but as I wasn't able to undo the filter in the first place a little worrying... I can't do it up any tighter. Not sure what I can do about..
If you have already cleaned it completely then it might be due to loose or broken filter
a new one will cost around £14
So I only need a new filter not new pump?
the pump runs fine and is draining fine so I believe it is good
I dont think a new pump is required
That's good news. Ok will see if leaks when run - if not will get new filter. Thanks. Don't think there is anything more I need advice on...
