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.

Filter Assembly

The filter efficiently removes food particles from the wash water, allowing it to be recycled during the cycle. For best performance and results, the filter must be cleaned regularly. For this reason, it is a good idea to remove the larger food particles trapped in the filter after each washing cycle by rinsing the semicircular filter and cup under running water. To remove the filter device, pull the cup handle in a upward direction.
