Wipe the exterior with a soft, damp cloth. Wipe the barcode scanner with a soft, damp cloth so that the appliance can scan the barcode on the T Disc properly. Rinse out the water tank and filter cartridge holder by hand and with water only. Do not place in the dishwasher. The lid of the water tank and the Service T Disc should also not be washed in the dishwasher. Remove the T Disc holder, the piercing unit and the drink outlet and clean thoroughly. These can be washed in the dishwasher. All parts related to the cup stand can also be washed in the dishwasher. If preparing a number of drinks one after another, the piercing unit may be manually cleaned quickly and easily by holding it under running water. We recommend that you clean the brewing unit regularly using the Service T Disc.

Cleaning and care
Remove the filter cartridge. Fill the water tank with water to the max mark and reinsert into the appliance. Turn the appliance “On” and place a large cup that is a minimum of 8 oz. onto the cup shelf under the drink outlet. Lift the lid of the brewing unit and place the Service T Disc in with the barcode facing down. Press the “Start/Stop” Button. The cleaning process will begin and dispense water into the cup. When the cleaning process has finished, empty the cup and put it back on the cup stand. Repeat this step 4 more times. When finished, open the brewing unit and remove the Service T Disc. Store the Service T Disc at the back of the appliance behind the water tank.
The descale icon will appear after approximately 400 cups. To carry this out you need the Service T-Disc which can be found stored behind the water tank and our tested and approved Descaling Tablets. Place the Service T-Disc in the T-Disc holder and close the lid. Pour 500ml of water into the water tank and place a container of at least 500ml onto the cup stand. Put a descaling tablet into the tank. Press and hold the start /stop button for at least 3 seconds to start the descaling programme. The programme will run for 20 minutes. At the end of the programme, the fill tank indicator will show. Empty container of fluid and fill the water tank up to the maximum amount. Open and close the brewing unit and press the start /stop button. The machine will rinse itself. Repeat this step another 4 times. The descaling process is complete.

Warning: Vinegar should never be used in the cleaning and descaling of the Tassimo. Do not immerse the appliance in water, use a steam cleaner or use scouring agents. Wait until the piercing unit is cool before removing or cleaning as it can get fairly hot immediately after brewing.
