    Hi there, I can’t open my Zanusi washing machine water filter. Is there any
    special tool to open it?

    Thanks, it’s jammed and I stripped the machine to clean the filter.
    Nice tip!

    Can you tell me the size of the type of the torx bit that you used in the
    drill to remove the bolts from the front counterweight at 4.00 mins please.
    As I had it all perfect only to realize my torx bits were all to small

    Dude, helped so much, knew exactly what I was getting into with this vid,
    now the other half has clean drawers and the machine has clean drawers too.

    Legend! Thanks so much.
    Foolishly I decided to clean the washing machine of all the fluff the day
    before I moved out of my rented house. Of course, not being trained in the
    ways of washing machine maintenance, I decided to pull the grey door rubber
    part out to clean it… well that was a mistake. What was suppose to be a 5
    minute task ended up taking me the best part of 2 hours to amend.
    Thankfully this video was on hand to tell me exactly how fix my wrong
    doing. Now I hope that it all works fine and I can get my deposit back, of
    course there is no time to test it now as I need to continue cleaning!
    Thanks for the great video, really helped me get out of this pickle… I
    hope 😀
