The service manual when downloaded and printed out was clear and easy to read. The manual is complete with the schematic diagram and technical data. I occasionally require a manual and now having registered with this company I shall order from them in the future.
Hello from Germany - thank you very much for the manual for my Sharp "Searcher" - the handling of your internet area is outstanding..Mike

Cleaning the filter
The water drain filter
A clean filter is important for the correct functioning of the machine, and should therefore be cleaned after every washing programme. Open the filter door and place a container underneath to catch any spillage. If the filter is blocked and the machine is unable to drain you will need to drain the water manually from the machine at this stage. To do this, unhook the drain hose from the standpipe or sink and hold the end of the hose over a bowl on the floor. The water should drain by gravity into the bowl. When the bowl is full, hook the hose back up and empty the bowl. Repeat the procedure until water stops flowing out. Unscrew and remove the filter. Clean carefully under a fast running tap. Replace the filter turning now clockwise and tighten it.
When the appliance is in use and depending on the programme selected there can be hot water in the filter. Never remove the filter during a wash cycle, always wait until the appliance has finished the cycle, and is empty. When replacing the filter, ensure it is securely retightened so as to stop leaks and young children being able to remove it.
The water inlet filters
If your water is very hard or contains traces of lime deposit, the water inlet filters may become clogged. It is therefore a good idea to clean it from time to time. Turn off the water taps. Unscrew the water inlet hoses. Remove and clean the filters using a hard bristle brush. Replace the filters and tighten up the inlet hoses.
The dangers of freezing
If the machine is exposed to temperatures below 0Â°C, certain precautions should be taken. s Turn off the water taps. s Unscrew the inlet hoses. s Unhook the drain hose from the rear support and position the end of this hose and that of the inlet hose in a bowl. Run the draining programme. s Disconnect the appliance. s Screw the inlet hoses and reposition the drain hose. s When you intend to start the machine up again, make sure that the room temperature is above 0Â°C.
