    Video Transcript: How to Remove the Filters from a Dishwasher

    IMPORTANT: BEFORE REPLACING A PART IN ANY ELECTRICAL APPLIANCE, YOU MUST ENSURE THAT THE APPLIANCE IS FIRST UNPLUGGED FROM THE MAINS.

    Open the dishwasher door and remove the bottom drawer.

    To remove the top drawer, pull it halfway out and carefully lever off the end caps. The drawer can now be removed completely.

    The waste filter is located at the bottom of the dishwasher. To remove it, twist anticlockwise for a quarter of a turn, and lift it out. Separate the two sections so that they can be cleaned. Next, lift off the bottom filter tray and clean both filters with warm soapy water, remembering to rinse thoroughly.

    Replace the filter tray first and then slide the waste filter back in, twisting it back into place.

    Slide the top drawer back fully onto its runners and replace the end caps. Replace the bottom drawer, and your dishwasher is now ready to be plugged in and used.

    Please note that the locations and types of filter may vary according to your brand of dishwasher.
