pull and rinse out the glass coffee pitcher. This is often called a carafe.

This photo illustrates "rinsing out".

Pour the whole pot of water into the reservoir area in the back of the coffee maker.

Sometimes there is a little door covering the water reservoir.

Next, remove the plastic cup above the glass pot. This holds the coffee filter.

If the cup is already full of wet coffee grounds, dump them in the trash, along with the old filter.
