Detergents

Notes on detergents
You may use any brand of liquid or powder
detergent, as well as tablets, that have
been specifically designed for use in
domestic dishwashers (do not use normal
washing-up liquid!).
Nowadays there are three types of
dishwasher detergent available:
1. Those containing phosphates
and chlorine.
2. Those containing phosphates
but no chlorine.
3. Those containing neither phosphates
nor chlorine.
When a phosphate-free detergent is used
in conjunction with hard water, there is
a greater possibility that white marks will
be left behind on the dishes and glasses,
etc.
These can be prevented by pouring an
increased amount of detergent into the
dispenser.
Chlorine-free detergents have a reduced
bleaching effect. This may mean that tea
stains are not completely removed or
plastic items become discoloured.
This can be resolved by:
– using the "Auto Super Wash"
programme
– increasing the amount of detergent
– using a detergent that contains chloride
Check the label on the packaging to
determine whether a particular product is
suitable for use with silverware.
If you have any further questions, we
recommend that you contact the customer
advice departments of the respective
detergent manufacturer.
CAUTION
IMPORTANT NOTE
ON THE USE OF
COMBINED CLEANING
PRODUCTS
Please note the following when using
"combined cleaning products" which
eliminate the need for a rinsing agent or
salt, for example:
Some products with a built-in rinsing
agent are only used to their full effect in
certain programmes.
This type of product does not generally
produce the desired effect with
automatic programmes.
Products which eliminate the need for
regeneration salt can only be used
within a certain water hardness range.
If you wish to use these combined
products, please read the instructions
carefully and heed any notes on the
packaging.
Contact the manufacturer of the cleaning
agent if you have any questions,
particularly if:
the crockery is very wet once the
programme has finished.
limescale deposits are formed.
Any problems which arise as a direct
result of the use of these products are not
covered by our warranty.
