How to clean the filter of the Electrolux dishwasher

The drain filter can differ in shape, size, and attachment method. The general sequence of actions:

  • open the tank door;
  • remove the bottom basket for dishes;
  • unscrew the outer filter and remove the fine mesh.

Having removed the element, proceed to cleaning. There are several options:

  1. Mix the dish gel and the cleaning powder. Apply the mixture with an old non-rigid brush. After cleaning, thoroughly wash the parts under running water.
  2. Also, soda will help to get rid of fat. Mix it with fine table salt. Apply the product with a sponge for the dishes, then rinse under running water.
  3. Citric acid or vinegar will help eliminate limescale. Soak the parts in the solution for a while and then rinse under running water.

In addition, check the impeller of the pump that is located behind the filter. Follow the instruction:

  1. Remove water from the tank where the pump is located. To do this, use a sponge.
  2. Pull the flap to the side and then to yourself. Leave the lid on the side.
  3. Check impeller for obstruction and clean.

Clean the inside of the case. Do this by hand, using a brush and detergent. Also, you can run the empty dishwasher, using a special tool.

If after the finish of the every washing cycle the filter is checked and cleaned, then the technique will work without failures. And you will never see i40, i43 or i44 error code on the dishwasher’s display.
