For your convenience, we have placed the drain pump and filtering system within easy reach inside the tub. There are three
components of the filtering system: the main filter, the coarse filter, and the fine filter.
ATTENTION: Do not put the fine filter upside down
Never run the dishwasher without the filters in place.
Main filter
Food and soil particles trapped by this filter are pulverized by a special jet on
the lower spray arm and washed down the drain.
Coarse filter
Larger items, such as pieces of bone or glass, that could clog the drain are trapped in the
coarse filter. To remove an item caught in this filter, gently squeeze the tabs on top of this
filter and lift it out.
Fine filter
This filter holds soil and food residue in the sump area and prevents it from being
redeposited on the dishes during a cycle.
Filter assembly
For best performance and results, the filter must be cleaned regularly.
The filter efficiently removes food particles from the wash water, allowing it to be
recirculated during the cycle. For this reason, it is a good idea to remove the larger
food particles trapped in the filter after each wash cycle by rinsing the semicircular
filter and cup under running water. To remove the filter , pull on the cup handle in
the upward direction. The entire filter should be cleaned once a week.
To clean the coarse filter and the fine filter, use a cleaning brush. Then, reassemble
the filter parts as shown in the figures on the left and reinsert the entire filter in the
dishwasher, positioning in its seat and pressing downward.
The dishwasher must never be used without the filters. Improper replacement of the
filter may reduce the performance level of the appliance and damage dishes and
