level.

o What is meant by Aqua stop feature and why it is claimed to be safe?
All Fagor dishwashers are equipped with the Aqua stop feature which operates as
internal and external sensors to detect any leakage. Consequently, cuts the water
supply automatically. Thus, it is safe.
o How to increase the lifespan and efficiency of the dishwashers?
To achieve these, try to fill up the capacity of your dishwashers with a standardized
capacity of 12 place settings. This would also reduce water and electricity
consumption, more economical and quieter operation. Bear in mind to select the
correct wash programmes and additional functions as required and clean the
dishwasher regularly. Likewise, if you are planning to be away for a long period,
leave the dishwasher door open so that the air can circulate freely inside the
machine to last longer without usage for extended period.
