The filter prevents larger remnants of food or other objects from getting inside the pump. The residues may block the filter, in this case they must be removed.
The filter system consists of a coarse filter,a flat (Main filter) And a microfilter (Fine filter).
Main filter 1
Food and soil particles trapped in this filter are pulverized by a special jet on the lower spray arm and washed down to drain.
Coarse filter 2
Larger items, such as pieces of bones or glass, that could block the drain are trapped in the coarse filter. To remove the items caught by the filter, gently squeeze the tap on the top of this filter and lift out.
Fine filter 3
