Clothing fibres, fluff and small parts such as microplastics get caught in the fluff filter during washing. To ensure that the water can continue to be pumped out correctly, the sieve must be cleaned regularly.
The lint filter is usually located on the right or left under the porthole of your machine.
Remove and rinse under running water . You can also use a microfiber cloth to clean better.
If your washing machine is used daily, you should clean the lint filter monthly, or every three to four months with normal use (one to two loads per week).
If the fluff filter is not cleaned regularly, bacteria can settle and your laundry will start to smell unpleasant.
