Bosch Maxx Classic wont drain cannot open drain cap seems jared is there a correct way


This is a very common issue on these units, the link below has a video that explains how to clean the drain motor.

Good Luck with your repair.

The correct procedure for removing the filter is to unscrew it anti clockwise, and pull it out.
If it does not come out, then it is possible that there is something stuck in the filter, or the filter seal has swollen
As you unscrew it, try moving it from side to side at the same as you are pulling on it, then screw it back in again, and try the same procedure.
Hope this helps.
