As regular maintenance I was going to clean the filter...I got the hose out But I cannot get the cap off the drain hose ! I have turned counter clockwise..but it isnt moving at all
I have done this previously on my LG washer so I know how it should work..bit I cannot get it done... what am I doing wrong !

Hi Cody,

Turn it with more force or get your channel locks tool and turn it for more leverage.

Cover the plastic cap with a cloth or something then do it.
