Not sure if this is right but
I Want to know how to get at hose between drum and filter as think the blockage is there

Thanks .
Not an easy one to get at im afraid as the washer has a plastic base so you cannot go underneath the appliance to access the hose.
So you need to remove the front panel to access this.
To do this you need to pull the washer out and remove the top panel.
Then pull the dispenser drawer out and remove the screws around there.
Then remove the screws on top of the front control panel and then you can remove the front panel from there.
Then open the door and remove the plastic clamp from around the door seal and then unlip the seal and remove the 2 door lock screws.
Then lean the washer backwards and theres 3 screws holding the metal panel to the base.
Then with the front panel removed you will see 2 screws at towards the top holding the front panel to the cabinet.
With them removed you can then remove the front panel of the washer.
Then you can access the hose from there.
Now I can get the service manual on this which shows pictures on how to remove to panel so if you want I can upload this if you cannot do it from my discribiton.
