Steamer Module IS15 Drain Operation


  • How is the water drained out of the IS15 steamer?
  • How is the automatic drain operated on model IS15?
  • Does the steamer drain automatically close by itself?
  • Does the Steamer Module need to be connected to a drain line?
  • Can a bucket drain the water out of the IS15 steam module?


The automatic drain can only be operated while the unit is in Idle mode, unlocked, and not turned on.

  • To open the drain, press and hold Drain for 3 seconds. After this delay, the drain will stay open for 2 minutes and then close.
  • To close the drain before the 2 minutes, touch Drain and it will close immediately.
  • If the temperature of the liquid is above 140°F, HOT will show and the display will flash three times. Wait for temperature to cool below 140°F to drain.
  • For further info, refer to Steamer Module (IS15) Use and Care Guide.

The drain connects to a physical drain line connection, or use a bucket under the unit.

Consult a plumber for connecting the unit to a home drain line.
If a bucket is used, it must be at least a 2.5-gallon heat-resistant bucket. Wolf recommends lockable cabinet doors.
For further info, refer to Steamer Module (IS15) Installation Guide.
