Cleaning and Maintenance

Cleaning the drain pump lint filter

According to the soil level within the cycles and frequency of the cycles, you have to inspect and clean the filter regularly.

The pump should be inspected if the machine does not empty and/or spin.

The machine makes an unusual noise during draining due to objects such as safety pins, coins etc. blocking the pump.

  1. Prepare a dish or bucket to catch any excess water remaining in the drain pump. Place under drain pump before continuing.
  2. Open the service panel and unscrew the drain pump cover. Drain any water into the dish or bucket. Mop up any spillage with a rag.
  3. Remove any debris and obstructions from the drain pump filter.
  4. Replace and tighten the drain pump cover before closing the service panel.
