Lint and other objects may accumulate and clog the drain pump filter. Generally speaking, it is best to clean the drain filter at least once a month. If the unit is used frequently, it may be necessary to clean it more often. The drain pump filter is located on the front lower left hand corner of the unit behind the access panel. The directions are as followed:
1. Open the drain pump filter access panel.
2. Remove the plug from the drain hose, and allow the water to drain completely.
3. Unclip the drain hose and pull it out. Place the end of the drain hose in a pan, bucket, or floor drain to catch water.
4. Twist the pump filter counterclockwise to remove. Remove any lint and foreign objects from the pump filter. Reverse the above steps to reinstall the drain pump filter and drain hose. Be sure to close the cover panel when finished.
