    Video Transcript: How to Remove 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.

    The filters are right at the bottom of your dishwasher, so you'll need to remove the bottom basket to get access to them.

    You can simply lift the filter out, and pull the sections apart.

    Clean both sections with warm soapy water and make sure you rinse them thoroughly, be careful when checking for any food or broken glass lodged in the filter area.

    Put the sections of the filter back together, and replace it in the bottom of the dishwasher.

    Replace the bottom basket and your dishwasher is ready to use.
