2. Place a broad, flat pan beneath the drain pump filter to collect the drain water. Pull out the black hose, remove the plug, and drain the hose into the pan. Empty the pan. Replace the drain hose plug and put the hose back into place. Repeat this procedure if necessary until all the water has drained. Make sure that the black hose is completely dry.
