How to clean your dish washing machine with Somat machine cleaner
2. Remove the bottom rack to access the filter. You may have to remove a large metal covering, which could also have grime buildup or food scraps stuck to it (if so, give it a clean). There will be a plastic filter in the middle of the metal base, which should unscrew easily. You may want to wear gloves, as this is where things get dirty.
3. Run the filter under a hot tap, then clean it with warm soapy water. Use an old brush, if possible – after all, this is a month’s (or even several months’) worth of food waste buildup. If you are having trouble removing all the grime, soak the filter in warm water for a while ad then wipe it down with machine cleaner.
4. Replace the filter and wipe down the inside of the dishwasher with machine cleaner, especially around the door. You may need to use a limescale cleaner. If you notice a lot of limescale buildup, you should also make sure you are using dishwasher salt, which balances out hard water levels.
5. Use a dish washing machine cleaner to remove any remaining grease and limescale from the pipes, valves and tubes you can’t clean manually.
