Washing the filters - step-by-step

To remove the pre-filter, lift it out of the top of the machine.

To unlock the post-filter, rotate it anti-clockwise until the two solid black dots line up.

With cold water only, run water over the outside of the filters until the water runs clear.

Turn the filter upside down and shake to remove any excess debris.

Squeeze and twist the pre-filter with both hands to make sure the excess water is removed, then tap and shake the post-filter to expel all debris.

Leave the filter to dry with the open end facing up for as long as possible.

Ensure the filter is completely touch dry prior to refitting.

WARNING: Do not put the filter in a dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer, oven, microwave, or near a naked flame.

To refit the filter, place the dry filter back into the top of the machine. Ensure it is fitted properly.

Rotate the post-filter clockwise until it locks in place and the solid black dot lines up with the empty circle.
