Cleaning the washing machine

How can I clean the drain pump in my washing machine?

Before cleaning the drain pump in your washing machine it’s important to ensure that the power has been disconnected. Open the service flap on the machine and let the water run off from the tube. You can now unscrew the pump cover. Place a towel underneath it in case any remaining water runs out. Carefully check for foreign objects in the pump.

If the impeller can’t be turned, something could have become jammed in the pump. In this case, contact the customer service department on. Watch our video with an instruction and tips on how to clean the filter in your Bosch washing machine.
