Loading and unloading the dishwasher
How to load the dishes
The illustration shows the dishwasher loaded with six
place settings. Your own dishes are not likely to be
identical to this load, but if you follow the advices below
we are sure you will be pleased with the result.
Always place glasses, cups and bowls upside down.
Incline deep dishes (soup plates etc.) so that the
water can run off when drying.
Make sure that the dishes do not rest against each

Make sure that cutlery with slender handles and other
