How can I fix my Bosch exxcel 1600 express washing machine showing fo4?

My Bosch exxcel 1600 express washing machine is showing f04 and will not drain or spin. I have looked on the web and have been told it is a blocked filter, but how do I access this?

how can i take the child lock off my bosch exxcel 1600 express washing machine

The repair man took the front panel including door off.Which means removing the rubber seal held in place with a round wire that tightens up, to access the filter tube (RHS like a hoover tube), clamped it higher up & removed the stuff. But I guess unless you know what you're doing, maybe the front panel might be a bit tricky. Good luck anyway. It cost me £40, which i didn't think was too bad.

Take off the bottom right service flap, there will be a hose that you can pull out & drain water from. However I just tried this and ther's no water coming from the hose. So then I unscrewed the circular pump cap & water started pouring out - not a problem if you can find a shallow enough tray, but I can't, and I can't shift the machine outside (i'm e feeble bird!). So waiting for repair man. I'll let you know what he does when he's finished!
