If only a small number of
dishes have been loaded into
the dishwasher, selecting a
programme that operates at
the next lowest temperature
will usually suffice.
The stated programme data are based on
standard operating conditions. The values
can vary considerably according to:
different amounts of dishes
temperature of mains water supply
pressure of mains water supply
fluctuations in mains voltage
machine-related factors (e.g.
temperature, water volume, ...).
Energy and water consumption is reduced
by up to 1/4 when dishes are washed in
the upper basket only.
Water consumption values are based on a
water hardness setting of 4.
The Aquasensor is an optical measuring
device with which the cloudiness of the
water in the dishwasher is measured. A
photoelectric sensor is used to detect the
degree of soiling in the water, caused by
dissolved food particles such as egg, fat
and rolled oats, etc.
The Aquasensor functions during all
programmes that include a pre-rinse cycle.
If the water is still "clean" at the end of the
pre-rinse cycle, then the same water is
used for the following wash cycle. If the
water is dirty, it is pumped out of the
dishwasher and replaced by fresh water.
The effect is to reduce water consumption
by approx. 4 litres when the dishes are
only "slightly" dirty.
