      Machine is Less than a year old, and I’m slowly loosing the will!
      It’s a daewoo washer dryer.
      it has to have the filter cleaned every 3 washes. If I don’t it bungs up, and then I end up with a flood all over the utility room floor when I have to remove the filter because the machine won’t drain.
      just had this again tonight and if I could pick the bloody thing up, I would Throw it out of the door.
      my old machine needed doing far less often, about every 15-20 washes.
      is the every 2/3 washes frequency normal on new machines, or am I just unlucky?

      I have an 8 year old Bosch machine and I can honestly say I don’t even know where the filter is. I think I had better go and find it ;D

      well Ive not cleaned my washing machine filter at all and Ive had it 4 years. My tumble dryer filter I clean after every use. I would definitely go back to the shop you got it from, that seems unrealistic to have to do it so frequently.

      We did with the machine that was a washer/ drier, but not often, maybe every couple of months, it lasted 10 years or so. When clogged it did not dry, and if very bad it did not spin efficiently either.

      The last one we never did find a filter, it was with us for about 6 years, and in the end the door catch broke, and it would have cost too much to repair. No issues with spin.

      Current one we have had a year, and have not found a filter. No issues with spin.
