Water Inlet Filters:
Water inlet filters prevent dirt and foreign materials from entering your machine. It is recommended that these filters are cleaned when your machine is unable to receive sufficient water, although your water supply is on and the tap is open.
To clean the water inlet filters:
- Unscrew the water inlet hose from the Washing Machine by turning the hose anticlockwise and gently pulling.
- To remove the water inlet filter from the water inlet valve, use a pair of long-nosed pliers to gently pull on the plastic bar in the filter.
- Clean the filter thoroughly with a soft brush, wash with soapy water and rinse thoroughly.

A second water inlet filter is located in the tap end of the water inlet hose. To remove the second water inlet filter:
- Use a pair of long-nosed pliers to gently pull on the plastic bar in the filter.
- Clean the filter thoroughly with a soft brush and wash with soapy water and rinse thoroughly.
- Re-insert the filter by gently pushing it back into place.
The pump filter system in your Washing Machine prolongs the life of the pump by preventing lint from entering your machine. We recommend that you clean the pump filter every 2-3 months. The pump filter is located behind the cover on the front-lower right corner.
CAUTION: The water in the pump may be hot, wait for it cool before carrying out any cleaning or maintenance.
Cleaning the Pump Filter:
- Before opening the filter cover, place a container under the filter cover to collect any water left in the machine. Pull the top of the cover forwards using the finger groove, until the pump filter is fully exposed
