Welcome to Justanswer … my name is ***** ***** 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 ***** 047 208 (8205)

The model number is ***** 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.
