Cleaning and Routine Maintenance
Do not use alcohol-based scourers and /or thinners on the outside of your washing machine, just a wipe with a damp cloth will suffice. The washing machine needs very little maintenance:
- Cleaning the drawer compartments.
- Cleaning the filter.
- Cleaning the door glass.
Cleaning the drawer
Clean the compartments occasionally to remove detergents and additives.
- To do this you just need to pull the drawer out firmly from the machine, but without forcing it.
- Clean the compartments and the syphon cap under running water.
- Replace the drawer.
Cleaning the filter
The washing machine is fitted with a special filter to prevent items such as coins, buttons, etc. blocking the discharge hose. These may be retrieved by:
- Removing the kickplate by gently pulling it from the bottom in an outwards and upwards direction.
- Use the kickplate to collect the water still in the filter.
- Turn the filter anticlockwise, remove it and clean it.
After cleaning, return to it’s original position and lock by turning clockwise. Replace the kickplate. We recommend that the filter be cleaned frequently, at least once a month.
