1. Open the door to
access the drawer.
2. Remove the drawer

prevent unpleasant odours from forming.
Cleaning the pump
The washing machine is fitted with a self-cleaning
pump which does not require any maintenance.
Sometimes, small items (such as coins or buttons)
may fall into the pre-chamber which protects the
pump, situated in its bottom part.
Make sure the wash cycle has finished and unplug
the appliance.
To access the pre-chamber:
1. remove the protective
casing on the lower part
of the washing machine,
turning it in an
anticlockwise direction
(see figure);
2. unscrew the lid by
rotating it anti-clockwise
(see figure): a little water
may trickle out. This is
perfectly normal;
3. clean the inside thoroughly;
4. screw the lid back on;
5. screw the protective cap back on by turning it in a
clockwise direction, making sure the arrow on the
inside part of the cap is facing upwards.
Checking the water inlet hose
Check the inlet hose at least once a year. If there are
any cracks, it should be replaced immediately: during
the wash cycles, water pressure is very strong and a
cracked hose could easily split open.
Never use second-hand hoses.
