Cleaning the Bottom Lint Filter - Compact Heat Pump Dryer

Cleaning the Bottom Filter (located at the bottom front of the dryer):

  1. Open the filter door on the bottom of the dryer and grasp the handle to pull out the filter. Remove the foam from the bottom filter. Clean the filter foam and the filter by hand or rinse with water – do not wash the filter foam in a washer. Wring out the filter foam – do not insert it in the bottom filter dripping wet.

Removing and rinsing bottom filter foam under a running tap water

  1.  Replace the filter foam on the bottom filter. Replace the bottom filter in the filter chamber. Fold the filter handle down and close the bottom door.

NOTE: To turn off the “Clean bottom filter” status indicator, the filter must be removed and replaced with the Power button touched ON and no cycle running.

IMPORTANT:  Do not run the dryer with the filter loose, damaged, blocked, or missing. Doing so can cause overheating and damage to both the dryer and the fabrics.
