Now that the faucet is closed, disconnect the supply hose. You do this by turning the ring between the tap and the hose. Keep in mind that water is coming out of the hose. Use a bucket to collect this water.

Of course, you don't want any remaining water from the hoses dripping on your parquet flooring. That is why you should tape the supply and drain hoses to the appliance with the opening facing upwards. You can tape the hoses to the back of your washer dryer combination.

Step 6: empty drain filter

Finally, place the drain filter at the bottom. First, place a towel and a bucket in front of the filter. Open the cover in front of the drain filter. Can you see a tube? Use this to drain any remaining water. Push the filter and tube back into place. Close the drain cover. Now, all you have to do is make sure your washer dryer combination is ready for transport at your front door.
