Loading cutlery and dishes

Sponges, household cloths and any object that can absorb water may not be washed in the
dishwasher.
• Before loading the dishes, you should:
– Remove all left over food and debris.
– Soften remnants of burnt food in pans
• When loading the dishes and cutlery, please note:
– Dishes and cutlery must not impede the rotation of the spray arms.
– Load hollow items such as cups, glasses, pans, etc. with the opening downwards so
that water cannot collect in the container or a deep base.
– Dishes and items of cutlery must not lie inside one another, or cover each other.
– To avoid damage to glasses, they must not touch.
– Lay small objects in the cutlery basket.
• Plastic items and pans with non stick coatings have a tendency to retain water drops;
these items will not dry as well as porcelain and steel items.
• Light items (plastic bowls etc.) must be loaded in the upper basket and arranged so they
do not move.
• Cutlery with wooden, horn, china or mother-
of-pearls handles.
• Plastic items that are not heat resistant.
• Older cutlery with glued parts that are not
temperature resistant.
• Bonded cutlery items or dishes.
• Pewter or copper items.
• Lead crystal glass.
• Steel items prone to rusting.
• Wooden platters.
• Items made from synthetics fibres.
Open the door and slide out the baskets to load the dishes.
For washing in the dishwasher the following cutlery and dishes
are not suitable:
are of limited suitability:
• Only wash stoneware in the dishwasher if it
is specially marked as being dishwasher-safe
by the manufacturer.
• Glazed patterns may fade if machine washed
frequently.
• Silver and aluminium parts have a tendency
to discolour during washing: Residues, e.g.
egg white, egg yolk and mustard often cause
discolouring and staining on silver. Therefore
always clean left-overs from silver immedi-
ately, if it is not to be washed straight after
use.
