How do I clean the pump filter?

Your washing machine drain pump filter will accumulate dirt and detergent residue over time, so it is a good idea to clean it when necessary.

How to clean the drain pump filter:

Turn the washing machine off at the wall.

  1. Locate the filter on the bottom right-hand side of the appliance.
  2. When you open the filter housing there may be a large amount of water, so if your appliance has a drain tube you can use this to reduce the amount of water in the drum. Place a container under the filter to collect the remaining water. Be sure to open the filter housing slowly to avoid too much water being released in one go.
  3. Fully open the cover and remove the filter. 
  4. You can then clean the filter by rinsing it under the tap.  
  5. Make sure you replace the filter again properly.
