Changing / interrupting / cancelling
a wash programme
Only change or interrupt a wash programme
that is in progress if it is absolutely neces-
sary. After the appliance door has been
closed again, the air that has entered will be
heated significantly and expand. As a result,
water may collect in the base of the appli-
ance and trigger the anti-flood system.

gramme in the first 3 seconds after having

and hold it down.

currently running will flash.
After several seconds only the indicator for the
new wash programme will be illuminated.

turning the dishwasher back on again.

Load Sensing

If a wash programme is started even though there are
only a few dishes in the upper and/or lower basket, an
intelligent electronic system adjusts the amount of
water and the duration of the wash programme to the
number of dishes. By this means it is possible to
wash only a few dishes quickly and economically. At
half load (6 place settings), up to 2 litres of water and
0.2 kWh of electricity are saved.
Switching Off the Dish-
Switch off the dishwasher when
the programme progress display.
1. Press the ON/OFF button. The ON/OFF button
indicator extinguishes.
Hot steam may escape from the appliance
when opening the door immediately after the
end of the programme. Therefore:
2. Open the door carefully.
Emptying the Dishwasher
Hot dishes are sensitive to knocks. The dishes
should therefore be allowed to cool down before
removing them from the appliance.
Leave the dishes in the dishwasher for approx.
15 minutes after the end of the programme so that
they dry better and can cool down.
First empty the lower basket, and then the upper
rack. By using this procedure you will avoid any
water that may be remaining in the upper basket,
dripping onto the dishes in the lower basket and
leaving water marks.
