Filters for front-loading machines are usually located along the lower front, behind an access panel. Before removing the panel, ensure that the machine is switched off and that you have a shallow pan ready to collect debris and water. Use a rag to remove any excess residue from the filter.
Filters for traditional top-load washing machines are usually located along the rim or inside the agitator. Use a small brush or cloth to clean the lint off the screen mesh. If the screen mesh is detachable, remove and wash it in hot water to remove any residue.
For both models, clean the filters at least once a month to prevent any blockages. Some of the new high-efficiency washing machines do not have removable filters as they are self-cleaning. To clean a self-cleaning washing machine filter, simply run a cleaning cycle once a month to wash away any lint.
Safety is at the heart of everything we do here at Electrolux. For your peace of mind we equipped these machines with 2 family friendly safety features. Firstly there is the Child Lock which can be activated and deactivated by holding down the Rinse + and Easy Iron buttons at the same time. Once activated this lock will remain in place until it is deactivated, even if the machine is switched off. Secondly there is the door block which can be activated using a coin. It is located on the inside of the door and once activated blocks closure of the door preventing children or small pets from being locked inside.
