Loading the Dishwasher

Before placing the dishes in the dishwasher, remove larger food
particles to prevent the filter from becoming clogged, which results
in reduced performance.
If the pots and pans have baked-on food that is extremely hard to
remove, we recommend that they are soaked before washed. This
will eliminate the need for extra wash cycles.
Pull out the rack to load the dishwasher.
How to use the lower rack
We recommend that you place the most difficult to clean items on
the bottom rack: pots, pans, lids, serving dishes and bowls, as
shown in the figure to the right.
It is preferable to place serving dishes and lids on the sides of the
racks in order to avoid blocking the rotation of the top spray arm.
- Pots, serving bowls, etc. must always be placed face down.
- Deep pots should be slanted to allow the water to flow out.
- The lower rack features fold down tine rows (see fig.A) so that
larger or more pots and pans can be loaded.
- The silverware basket can be doubled (see fig.B) so that only
one section may be used when the silverware load is light. This
also makes space for additional pots and pans and it can also be
placed in the upper rack.
- Silverware should be placed in the silverware basket with the
handles at the bottom; if the rack has side baskets, the spoons
should be located individually into the appropriate slots. Espe-
cially long utensils should be placed in the horizontal position at
the front of the upper rack.
How to use the upper rack
The upper rack is designed to hold more delicate and lighter
dishware, such as glasses, cups and saucers, plates, small bowls
and shallow pans (as long as they are not too dirty).
- Position the dishes and cookware so that they do not get moved
by the spray of water.
The upper rack can be adjusted for height by using the knobs lo-
cated on both sides of the rack itself (see fig.C).
Adjust the upper basket to the higher level and you have more
space to accommodate those taller pans and trays in the bottom
Lean tall glasses and those with long stems against the shelf-not
against other items to be washed.
Place glasses, cups and small bowls on the additional cup rack.
The additional cup rack can be swivelled in or out as required(see
Knife rack
The knife rack clips onto the side of the top basket, giving you the
freedom to wash your large sharp knives separately and out of
harm's way (see fig.E).
