BASIC INSTRUCTIONS The following step-by-step instructions will help you to achieve the best possible results. FILL THE BASKETS PROPERLY Your dishwasher features the ASKO Super Cle- aning System . After the pre-wash, the main ™ wash is started with clean water and a clean machine and therefore it is not necessary to rinse dishware before washing up.
Place larger plates, dishes, pots, saucepans and cutlery (in the cutlery basket) in the lower basket. The detachable plate rack that is supp- lied with some models can easily be lifted out to provide space for big plates, saucepans and pots, or be fitted in one of the three different posi- tions.
2. Intensive wash Use the Intensive wash programme for heavily soiled ware, such as pots and pans, and gratin forms. The dishwasher can suitably be loaded with other items if not completely filled. 3. Normal wash Use this programme for normal washing. It is devised for normally soiled glasses, cups and saucers, plates, dishes, etc.

Spin the arms by hand and if they do not spin freely lift them off and wipe the fittings clean.
