To clean the washing machine filter on a Bosch washing machine, follow these steps:
1. Turn off the washing machine and unplug it from the power source to ensure safety.
2. Locate the filter access panel, which is usually located at the front or bottom of the machine. Refer to your Bosch washing machine manual for specific instructions on finding the filter.
3. Open the filter access panel. Some models may have a small drainage hose attached to the filter access panel. If present, place a towel or a shallow container below the hose to catch any water that may come out.
4. Unscrew the filter cap or pull out the filter, depending on the design of your Bosch washing machine. Be careful as there may be water trapped in the filter.
5. Rinse the filter under running water to remove any debris or lint. Use a soft brush or toothbrush to gently scrub away stubborn dirt if needed. Ensure that all the dirt is removed from the filter.
6. Check the filter housing for any blockages or buildup. If you notice any, clean the housing using a damp cloth or sponge.
7. Once the filter and housing are clean, reinsert the filter back into its place. Screw the filter cap back on or push the filter firmly until it clicks into position.
8. Close the filter access panel securely.
9. Plug the washing machine back into the power source and turn it on.
It is recommended to clean the washing machine filter regularly, at least once every few months, to prevent clogs and maintain optimal performance.
