pump cover if there is a malfunction and water is no longer being
pumped out, e.g. if the pump wheel is blocked.
Before loading the machine, please always ensure that there are no for-

washed. Paper clips, nails, etc. which may find their way into the wash-
ing machine along with the washing will remain in the drain pump
housing (foreign body trap that protects the pump wheel).
Before opening the cover of the drain pump, switch off the
washing machine and remove the power plug from the power point.
First carry out an emergency drain.
Place a cloth on the floor in front of the cover of the drain pump.

Remove foreign bodies and fluff
from the pump housing and from
the pump wheel.

with a jerky motion, this is normal.)
