How to clean the Debris Filter in Samsung Washing Machine?

Last Update Date : Aug 08. 2018

The debris filter should be cleaned periodically, approximately every 30-40 loads, or 2-3 months. Cleaning the filter can also potentially help improve cleaning performance and help prevent odors.

Please Note: 
• Before cleaning the debris filter, make sure to unplug the washing machine from the electrical outlet.

• Do not disassemble the debris filter while the machine is running as hot water may flow out.
