Cleaning and care Cleaning and care Cleaning the fluff (drain) filter and pump Check the fluff (drain) filter initially after 3-4 washes to ascertain how often it is likely to require cleaning. With normal cleaning approx. 2 litres of water run out. If the drain outlet is clogged, more water will be retained in the machine (up to 25 litres).
Cleaning and care Clean the inside of the fluff filter hous- ing. Remove any deposits of lime scale and detergent or foreign objects from the thread of the filter housing and filter unit (as these objects can cause a leakage of water).
