    How do I clean my Philips espresso machine?


    • Caring for your Philips espresso machine is the key to enjoying years of first-class coffee. Here you will find the most important information on cleaning and maintenance.
    • All solutions and information videos apply to the entire range of Philips fully automatic coffee machines (Philips 5000 LatteGo, Philips 5000 series, Philips 4000 series, Philips 3000 series, Philips 2100 series and Philips 2000 series).

    Clean the LatteGo

    LatteGo, the easiest to clean milk system ever
    This instruction only applies to machines with the LatteGo milk system.

    2-part milk system without hoses

    Our 2-part milk system works completely without hoses or hidden parts and can be cleaned under running water within a few seconds.


    Dishwasher Safe

    The LatteGo milk system is dishwasher safe for even easier cleaning. This saves time and guarantees hygienic cleaning.


    LatteGo lid

    Use the LatteGo lid - for uncomplicated and convenient storage inside and outside the refrigerator. 


    Cleaning process: 

    After each use, separate the two parts of the LatteGo and clean them in the dishwasher or under running lukewarm water. You can also use some dish soap. 


    Quick Clean function:

    If you don’t want to empty the LatteGo each time, and would prefer to keep the milk in it in the refrigerator, you can do a quick cleaning. However, not all machines are equipped with this function. You can select "Quick Clean" using the menu button. This function flushes hot water through the milk system. Refer to the directions for use for complete details.

    • When preparing 6-10 cups a day every 2 months.
