Energy Saving Tips
It is important to try and run the dishwasher when it is fully
loaded to save on energy. In order to prevent odours from
forming and food from caking onto the dishes,you can run
the hold cycle.
- Choose the right wash cycle: the choice of cycle depends on
the type of dishware, cookware and utensils being washed and
how dirty they are.
How to Keep Your Dishwasher in Shape
After Every Wash
After every wash, turn off the water supply to the appliance and
leave the door slightly ajar so that moisture and odours are not
Remove the Plug
Before cleaning or performing maintenance, always remove the
plug from the socket. Do not run risks.
No Solvents or Abrasive Cleaning Products
To clean the exterior and rubber parts of the dishwasher, do not
use solvents or abrasive cleaning products. Rather, use only a
cloth and warm soapy water.
To remove spots or stains from the surface of the interior, use a
cloth dampened with water and a little white vinegar, or a clean-
ing product made specifically for dishwasher.
- Use the right amount of detergent: if you use too much detergent,
the result will not be cleaner dishes, but a greater negative im-
pact on the enviroment.
- There is no untility in rinsing dishes, cookware and untensils
before placing them in the dishwasher.
Moving the Appliance
If the appliance must be moved,try to keep it in the vertical position.
If absolutely necessary, it can be positioned on its back.
One of the factors that cause odours to form in the dishwasher is
food that remains trapped in the seals. Periodic cleaning with a
sponge will prevent this from occuring.
When You Go on Holiday
When you go on holiday, it is recommended that you run a wash
cycle with the dishwasher empty and then remove the plug from
the socket, turn off the water supply and leave the door of the
appliance slightly ajar. This will help the seals last longer and pre-
vent odours from forming within the appliance.
