Loading your Dishwasher
First of all.
Before placing dishes in the baskets,
remove all course food remains. This
avoids blocking the filter, which would
reduce the efficiency of the wash.
If saucepans and frying pans are very
dirty, allow them to soak before being
washed.
To make it easier to load your dishes,
pull the baskets out.
What goes into the lower
basket?
We recommend you place the most
difficult dishes to wash into the lower
basket:saucepans,lids,soupdishesand
plates (a load example is shown in the
photo).
• Serving dishes and large lids:
place them on the sides of the
basket.
• Saucepans, salad bowls: must
alwaysbeplacedupsidedown
• Very deep dishes: place them
obliquely, thus allowing water to run
downthemandcleaningthembetter
Placethecutlerywiththehandlesatthe

It is best if you place longer utensils
horizontally at the front of the upper

Resolving minor problems yourself.
Experience has shown that you can resolve most problems that arise during normal daily usage yourself, without having to call out a service
engineer. Not only does this save costs but it also means the appliance is available for use again that much sooner. The following list of common
occurences and their remedies should help you identify the causes of most problems.
