How To Clean A Wire Mesh Coffee Filter?

I have a coffee maker that has a fine wire screen mesh instead of a paper filter. It is slowly being clogged with coffee fines bound with residual oils. I can’t seem to get it completely cleaned out, I’d rather not spring for a new one when this one is perfectly good except for the cleaning.
I’ve tried putting it in the dishwasher, soaking it in hot soapy water, and even using one of those power steam cleaners. The steam cleaner gets some of the crud out, but not all of it.
