The model no is WAS28461AU 7.5kg washer. I can only turn the cap one quarter turn and then it stops.

Ok if you can only turn it a 1/4 turn then something is stuck in there.

What you need to do is hold the filter with a pair and pilers and then quickley loosen the filter and tigthen it up quickely as this can dislodge what ever it is in there.

But if that doesnt work then you need to remove the front panel of the washer and remove the drain pump.

Then from there you can remove what ever it is stuck in there.

So try the above and see how it goes from there and let me know.
