Why not call the manufacturer and see what they say.
1-800 is in the manual.
Good luck and post your results as I'm sure other have to do the same.

On mine I disconnect and drain the hoses, when done open the small kick panel in the front, just clipped on, and remove the pump strainer plug. That is the low point of the machine. Have a towel handy, about a pint of water will drain out. Instructions are also in the operators manual that came with it.

That is how I do mine although not a combo. Running warm gets both lines at once and make sure to run a spin for a second or two to get antifreeze in the pump and drain. For safety I pour some in before the spin.
