Open the door. Remove fluff from the door/door area.
Pull out both parts of the fluff filter.
Remove fluff from the edge of the shaft. Fluff should not fall

Rinse both parts under running water and dry thoroughly.
Close the inner and outer filter, put them back together
and reinsert them into the appliance.
