There are no cleanable filters on the unit, you can just scrub that part out under the agitator, but it is not removable. You can fill it up partially with water then scrub it out, but that is really about all you can do on that unit.

All I ask is please select the ***5 STAR RATING*** using the link at the top of your page before leaving, that is the only way I am credited through the site, tips are appreciated.
