    Ordered the part, arrived early the following morning to a few seconds to fit and the machine was back working correctly immediately after fitting. Really pleased with the quality of the part and of the service provided.

    My filter blocked up with hair grips and fluff .As previous reviews handle broke and I eventually wrenched it out by twisting .I think Bosch have deliberately made this of weak material as it took some pulling out and didn't damage the housing.I just kept twisting anticlockwise with a wrench holding onto what was left of the handle .New replacement fits like a glove and washer fine,the handle on this one is a bit bigger than original but fits fine in my logiix 8 washer. Pleased with myself just to get an engineer out was £95 plus vat and parts.Did it myself but not sure I got my discount I was promised. Still quids in

    Old filter was jammed solid and had to be broken to get at the blockage. Spare was a perfect replacement for my Bosch machine. Lubricated when fitting to make removal easier next time.

      Because of the construction of this 'filter' if a hair grip, coin or piece of bra wire is washed into the supply hose it can jam and stop the rotation of the filter. If this happens remove the pump hose and remove the debris and you should be able to remove the filter after this.

  • Q I have Bosch logixx 7 washing machine the number on the machine is WIS24140GB, will this filter fit?? Can't unscrew the cap and have snapped the plastic with my pliers like a pratt!!! If this part isn't suitable could anyone advice what part will fit? 2 Answers

      I too did the same and I too am a 'pratt' (LOL), but may be not a typical one, I used my pliers with a sock to cushion it, only the top bit of the plastic broke. So now I had to think. Pulled the machine out, lay it almost flat resting the back on a saucepan on the floor. Now access to the filter cap was horizontal, used long nose pliers and slowly turned it anticlockwise. Bosch should think about such a situation and make the handle with not brittle Bakelite plastic but more ductile stronger plastic. Hope this helps.

      This part should fit your machine.Note, the reason why the filter would not unscrew maybe due to 'hair grips' or other debris catching in the vanes of the filter. To undo the filter disconnect the pump body from the front panel and remove the inlet pipe to remove the debris.

      mine was full of hairbands and stuff ... it broke when i tried to unscrew it with pliers, managed to remove it all. Would suggest you take the whole assembly off and clean out all the scale properly. Keep kids little bits and bobs from your machines. ... New one fitted in seconds, Though had to get it from Siemens as was told not stocked by e-spares.

      To remove the filter i used a set pliers and broke it and chiseled the remaining making sure you do not damage the screw in thread. The reason it is difficult to remove the filter as there is a lot of scaling built behind it. If you do break the filter you can replace it,most of the spares are sold at espares.

  • Q As a determined women went to replace the filter cap on my washer and had to use pliers and yes I have snapped the plastic. There is now pretty much nothing to get leverage on to unscrew it. What can I do? Please help 1 Answer

      The filter has broken as it is likely to be blocked or jammed with coins, hair grips or other articles from your pockets. To remove this debris it will be necessary to remove the pump assembly before removing the filter. If you have removed the debris and still cannot turn it punch two holes in the filter face and use these to turn the filter. Order filter before starting or filter and housing.

      Hi Morph, there is 16 washing machines in the WFL2000 range. In order to find the right filter for you I'll need your model's individual number, which will be WFL2000 followed by 'xx/##'.
