  • Using pliers, loosen the clamp on the hose from the tumbler and slide it back.

  • Remove the hose.

  • BE PREPARED FOR SOME WATER (use a towel or bowl).

Aggiungi Commento

  • In my case, the pump inlet (where we just removed the hose coming from the tumbler) was clogged with debris and some cloth.

  • This prevented draining, and even prevented removal of the filter. Thus, requiring disassembly. But we are not done yet.

  • Unscrew four T2 screws.

  • Tilt the filter/pump unit (note the tab at the top), and pull it out from the back.

  • At his point you can clean the water inlet, the filter, and the pump. The propellor should move freely. The pump itself can also be removed to replace it (but I did not do that).

  • In my case, a significant amount of cloth got stuck in the water inlet, including a necklace. In the filter, there were some hairpins, and inside the pump itself, a coin and a pendent. LESSON: CLEAN THE FILTER MORE OFTEN, while you can stil remove it without disassembling the machine.
