Removing the pump filter problem

I have a DLE3500W.ABWEEUS side load washer. Part of the instructions for 'Cleaning the Drain Pump Filter' is about removing the pump filter after draining any remaining water by unclipping the drain hose. But when I tried removing the pump filter last time a whole bunch of water poured onto the floor on which the washer sits, despite the fact that there was no water in the washer drum. What could be causing this problem ? It is impossible to put anything below the pump filter to catch this water and I do not want to have to clean up the floor below and under the washer each time I remove the pump filter in order to clean it.

    eldiener, there can be water stored outside of the drum that has not reached the drain pump filter that is leaking out. How often are you cleaning the filter? How much water is coming out when the filter is removed?
