How to clean the lint filter on a tumble dryer

Find out how to clean the lint filter on your tumble dryer. We recommend cleaning the lint filter after each load. 

Please note: Some washer / dryer combos do not have a lint filter. The lint is removed from the drum by the drain pump instead. For these machines, it is especially important to clean the drain pump filter regularly.

1 Open the door and pull the lint filter upward to remove.

3 Unfold both the inner filter and the outer filter.

4 Remove the lint from both filters, and then clean the filters with the cleaning brush. Clean the filters in running water, then dry them completely.
5 Put the inner filter into the outer filter, and then reinsert the lint filter into the original position.
Replace the inner filter into the outer filter

Please note:

  • Clean the lint filter after each load. Otherwise, the drying performance may decrease.
  • Do not operate the dryer without the inner filter inside the outer filter.
  • Using the dryer with a wet lint filter may cause mould, bad odours, or a decrease in drying performance.
