But do not submerge the electric motor.

You should probably post that on Mumsnet as well

Usual case of using the wrong words for things - I think they mean the grill/grease filters rather than the whole fan. As I recall my cooker hood came with instructions saying the grease filters could be cleaned in a dishwasher.

The cover of ours is taken off and goes in the dishwasher.

I haven't tried putting the fan blades in yet.

I had fun today trying to fit a new cooker extractor hood that was 600mm wide into a 597mm wide space between wall units. Anyway I was amazed that the old unit which had worn out motor bearings had a reasonably clean centrifugal fan but the ducting was covered in old cooking grease. I suppose that the fan just throws off the hot grease.
