Hoover H Wash 500 unable to open filter door

Recommended Posts

Just posting this here in the hope it helps someone else stuck in the same position I was in last night.

If you've got a Hoover H Wash 500 washing machine, the front filter door isn't easy to open and you might think it's on some kind of locking mechanism, similar to the main door.

Short answer - it isn't.  The hinge is on the left hand side of the door and you might have to slide something like a credit card corner into the 3 o'clock position on the door to be able to release the catch.
