Loading the Dishwasher
Before placing the dishes in the dishwasher, remove large food
particles to prevent the filter from becoming clogged, which re-
sults in reduced performance.
If the pots and pans have baked-on food that is extremely hard to
remove, we recommend that they be allowed to soak before they
are washed. This will eliminate the need for extra wash cycles.
Pull out the rack to facilitate loading the dishwasher.
How to Use the Lower Rack
We recommend that you place the most difficult to clean items on
the lower rack: pots, lids, serving dishes and bowls, as shown in
the figure on 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 silverware basket can be doubled (see Fig. A) 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.
Especially 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, coffee and tea cups and saucers, as
well as 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 the sides of the rack itself (see Fig.B).
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
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.D).

Close the door and then the wash cycle has begun and cannot
be modified. If necessary, read the paragraph entitled, "Cancel-
