How to load the dishes

The illustration shows the dishwasher loaded with 5 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
other. This is particularly important in regard to the
cutlery basket - nested spoons, etc. simply cannot be
properly washed. The water must get at all the soiled
Make sure that cutlery with slender handles and other
items do not protrude through the openings in the
basket and prevent the spray arm from rotating.
Never put silver and stainless steel objects together.
When these metals come into contact with each other
a chemical reaction occurs which stains the silver.
China with a pattern applied on top of the glaze may
not be suitable for machine washing as the colours
may fade and lose their lustre. The same applies to
cutlery with wooden or plastic handles.
Make sure you always buy articles that are dish-
washer proof.
Silver and aluminum items tend to be discolour when
washed. Food remnants from egg and mustard often
causes discolourations and stains on silver. Make sure
to rinse off and remove food remnants on silver if it is
not washed immediately after it has been used.
Not all plastic articles are machine washable. If you
are in doubt as to whether your plasticware can be
machine washed, we suggest you check by washing
a single item or else wash them by hand.
When washing delicate items, select the lower wash
Substances such as ketchup containing strong colouring
agents can cause temporary discolouration to the
interior of the dishwasher.
