Loading your machine

toothpicks, fish bones, scraps of meat and
vegetables, fruit skins etc.) to avoid clogging the filters
and consequently reducing performance.

Use of the lower basket
The lower basket is designed to take saucepans, lids,
plates, salad bowls, cutlery etc.
Serving dishes and large lids should be arranged
around the edge of the basket, ensuring that the
upper spray arm can turn freely.
Cutlery should be placed in the removable cutlery
basket with the handles facing downwards. If the
handles protrude from the bottom of the basket,
obstructing the lower spray arm, load the cutlery with
the handles facing upward.
Mix spoons with the other cutlery to prevent them
The two rear rows of prongs on the lower basket can
be easily lowered to allow you to load pots, pans and
To lower the prongs:
- slightly pull them upward and let them drop down
- to bring them back to the standing position, just pull
them up again.
Long bladed knives stored in an upright
position are a potential hazard.
Long and/or sharp items of cutlery such
as carving knives must be positioned
horizontally in the upper basket.
Take care when loading or unloading
sharp items such as knives.
