        tube back into the machine. When no more water flows from the tube, Turn the drain filter cap counterclockwise and unscrew until it is removed.

       Then remove any foreign material from the filter and the chamber that the filter fits into. 

   ③ Refit the filter into the chamber and turn the cap clockwise until it is secure. be sure not to cross thread the cap when refitting.
