Good morning,

You can download a copy of the manual for your washer here, full details for cleaning the filter out are on page 7.
In summary.:

  1. Switch off the power at the wall \ unplug the washer
  2. Remove the bottom plinth
  3. If fitted use the drain hose to remove any water into a bucket
  4. Unscrew the plug, capturing any water into a small bucket
  5. clean the filter with water, it may also be worth using a cloth to remove any debris in the void where the filter fits.
  6. Resecure the filter and plug
  7. Secure the hose back in place (if fitted)
  8. Switch the washer on and run it on a rinse program, check no water is leaking from the filter plug
  9. Secure the plinth.
