How to clean the evaporator filter of your Heat Pump tumble dryer

If you have a Beko Heat Pump tumble dryer, your evaporator filter should be checked and cleaned every few cycles to ensure drying performance is not reduced. Some models of Beko tumble dryer will have a warning symbol that appears on the display whenever this needs to happen. Here’s a step-by-step guide to cleaning the evaporator:

  1. The evaporator filter is housed behind the kick plate at the bottom of the machine.
  2. Press the kick plate button to open the kick plate.
  3. Remove the evaporator filter which is housed inside a drawer by twisting or unclipping as directed on the machine.
  4. We recommend you also clean the evaporator at the same time as you clean the filter, every six months.
  5. Open the evaporator filter drawer by pressing the button on the top and take out the sponge evaporator filter.
  6. Clean the filter drawer with a vacuum cleaner or damp sponge.
  7. The sponge filter can be cleaned with a damp cloth. It can be rinsed under running water if needed. Ensure the sponge filter is dry before putting it back into the filter drawer.
  8. Place the sponge carefully back inside the filter drawer ensuring it is not being squeezed when housed in the filter drawer.
  9. Replace the filter drawer and tighten the cap turning the filter drawer lock turning it in the arrow direction as directed on your machine.
  10. Close the kick plate cover.
