4. The water inlet hose filter
If your water is very hard or contains traces of lime
deposit, the water inlet filter may become clogged.
It is therefore a good idea to clean it from time to
time.
Turn off the water tap. Unscrew the water inlet hose.
Clean the filter using a hard bristle brush.
Tighten up the inlet hose.

5. Emergency emptying out

If the water is not discharged (outlet pump is
blocked, filter or drain hose are clogged), proceed as
follows to empty out the machine:
• pull out the plug from the power socket;
• close the water tap;
• if necessary, wait until the water has cooled down;
• open the drainage area door;
• place a bowl to collect the water;
• release the emergency emptying hose, place it in
the bowl and remove its cap, when the bowl is full
put the cap back on the emergency emptying hose;
• empty the bowl, repeat the procedure until you
have completely emptied the washing machine;
• replace the emergency emptying hose in its initial
position and close the drainage area door.

6. Frost precautions

If the machine is installed in a place where the
temperature could drop below 0°C, proceed as
follows:
• disconnect the appliance;
• close the water tap;
• if necessary, wait until the water has cooled down;
• open the drainage area door;
• place a bowl to collect the water that will flow out;
• release the emergency emptying hose, place it in
the bowl and remove its cap;
• when the water stops flowing out, put the cap back
on the emergency emptying hose, replace the
emergency emptying hose in its initial position and
close the drainage area door.
By doing this, any water remaining in the machine is
removed, avoiding the formation of ice and,
consequently, breakage of the affected parts.
When you use the machine again, make sure that
the ambient temperature is above 0°C.
