Welcome to Justanswer … my name is Kevin and I will help you today!

I’m sorry to hear you're having trouble with your appliance; I know that can be frustrating.

Hopefully, we can get this resolved quickly.

You are unable to remove that screw in the Imae attached ?

Can you provide its complete model number ?



If you ask a follow‑up question and I do not respond immediately, it is because I am temporarily unavailable.

I promise to respond as soon as I return.

We managed to unscrew the cover and cleaned out underneath but we can't put the cover back. The model number is 5600 047 208 (8205)

The model number is incorrect, please check again (starts with E nr)


Is it broken? If you have removed the screw it can be inserted back again after cleaning is complete

We seem to have fixed it, we ran a rinse cycle and the water drained away. No need to phone.

Glad it is sorted.

Something might have stuck in there and caused this issue.


If you have any follow-up or clarification questions, you can ask me as many questions as you need.

There is no additional fee.


If I have fully answered your question(s) to your satisfaction,

I would appreciate you rating my service (hopefully Excellent/5 stars!) at the top of the screen.
