Quick Draining

These instructions only apply to the Lelit PL60PLUST Diana. Using these instructions on other models may cause damage.

  1. Power up the machine to fully heat both the coffee and steam boilers.
  2. Remove the hose from the water tank/reservoir.
  3. Place a cup under both the grouphead and the hot water wand.
  4. You need to perform the following 2 steps simultaneously to avoid heating element damage!
    • Activate the coffee switch to pump water out of the grouphead until water stops or 20 seconds pass (whichever is sooner).
    • Activate the hot water switch until water stops flowing or 20 seconds pass (whichever is sooner).
    • Afterward, deactivate both switches.
  5. Turn on the steam switch to let steam come out. Wait until you hear the pump engage.
  6. Wait 30 seconds more and then power off the machine. Any water remaining will hopefully evaporate since your machine is fully heated.
