Make sure the machine is empty of water

Time: 5 min

If there is water in the machine, the door cannot be opened. If you want to open the door, you can do it after the water has been pumped out.

To pump water out from the machine, select and run the drain cycle. If necessary, by performing an emergency drain operation on the machine.

{BAS|If there is no filter access at the front of your appliance, we recommend you to book a repair}
Warning: Disconnect the mains plug from the mains socket. Do not remove the filter while the appliance operates. Do not clean the pump if the water in the appliance is hot. Wait until the water cools down. 

Step 1: Open the pump cover


Step 2: Place a suitable bowl below the drain pump access to collect the water that flows out

Open the chute downwards. Always keep a rag nearby to dry up any water spillages when removing the filter.


Step 3: Turn the filter 180 degrees in an anti-clockwise direction to open it, without removing

Try to use a tool (e.g. pliers) to loosen or remove the filter but do not force it too much in order not to break plastic parts.

Let the water flow out into the bowl.

When the bowl is full of water, turn the filter back and empty the container.

Repeat this step until the water stops flowing out.


Step 4: Turn the filter anti-clockwise to remove the filter


Step 5: Remove debris from the filter recess


Step 6: Now that the filter is clear from debris, check if the impeller is rotating. you should feel a slight resistance like it is "spring-loaded"

Step 7: Clean the filter by rinsing it under a tap

Step 8: Put the filter back into the special guides by turning it clockwise

Make sure that you tighten the filter correctly to prevent leakages.




Step 9: Close the pump cover

When you drain the water with the emergency drain procedure, you must activate the drain system again. Put 2 litres of water in the main wash compartment of the detergent dispenser.
