Hi, try using a pair of slip joint pliers. Open them about half way then place one jaws on each side of the filter handle then slowly turn the filter to the left. The added leverage should make getting the filter open easier. Keep a couple of bath towels or a wet vac handy to catch any water that comes out. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: spinning cycle

Keeping in mind that the soap & bleach gets dispensed into your wash on the second to last rinse cycle and that most all rinse cycles are in cold water. Is your cold water valve screen plugged causing your washer to rinse poorly? Are you using the HE detergent? If not maybe the washer is sudsing up to much and having a hard time rinsing all the suds and bleach out and leaving the clothes soapy.

Fill the washer up with no clothes in it on a cold/cold wash setting does it take a long time to fill the washer up? Also when it is full and agitating is there suds in the washer?

Last suggestion is if the drain is hose is a lot higher than the top of the washer it might have a hard time draining out all of the soap water before the next load

Hi deppgirl,
I checked the lint filter at the front bottom left hand side and it was full of junk.  Once emptied it worked a treat.  Pull the flap down and turn the large knob anti-clockwise and pull to remove.  Good luck.

SOURCE: Wont drain, wont empty, wont go onto rinse, drain or spin during

The filter on this machine is behind the flat at bottom right of machine. Tilt machine back before unscrewing to avoid spillage. If filter is clear get back to me and will explore other possibilities.

please check if the water outlet pipe is clear by blowing down it to see weather the pipe is clear as the machine wont move on until the water is emptied from the last cycle it needs to empty the wash water first before spin cycle can start, its worth a try eric

  1. Turn off machine and unplug it.
  2. Open filter it and clean it.
  3. Check if in pump turbine is clogged or jammed with foreign object. On some pumps you can test if turbine it rotates free using screwdriver or a finger.
  4. Check if the drain outlet pipe is clogged.

Unless pump motor is dead I'm 99% sure that either filter, pump and/or drain pipe are clogged.

Daewoo dwf-6094r wont spin on spin cycle


You need to clean out your outlet filter;(which is accessible thru the front bottom right side of machine, small push door, or plastic screw) this needs to be done periodically - according to your usage. If this does not solve your problem check out your outlet pump. Plug off the wall first before you do the jobs. The machine will not drain water if the outlet is clogged. For the pump, tubes, etc you hav to open up behind the machine. Be prepared for water to come flowing out.......
And rate me pl, if the solution has worked......

Full of soap


Possible your outlet filter is blocked. This requires cleaning depending on your usage. Plug off the wall, refer to manual re. outlet filter. Siphon out maximum water by removing the tube from behind machine which goes into wall drain. (refit this after cleaning into EXACT position) Clean outlet filter and refit. Good luck. When your outlet filter is clogged or blocked, the machine refuses to spin.

Bosch WFL 2860 Stops Part Way through Its Cycle


When a machine stops during its rinse period, it is normally a block in your outlet filter. And you say it has not been maintained in any way for 5 years; at least you shd be doing the minimum maintainance like clearing your outlet filter.

Front bottom right, is where access to the filter normally is; get to it and clean out, plug off the wall first. The large plastic is to be turned anti-clockwise to remove, refit carefully after cleaning.

Rinse water fills the washing machine when the spin cycle starts


Check your outlet filter, most likely it is blocked, preventing the water from draining out. Chk your pump too. Before this disconnect from the wall socket; and also check the pipe coming from the tub to the filter. Siphon out the excess water from inside the machine before you open the pipes.
