Additional options

Saving time (VarioSpeed) *

The >>Save time<< function can reduce
the running time by approx. 20% to 50%
depending on the selected rinse
programme. The change in the running
time is indicated on the digital display
To obtain optimum cleaning and drying
results at a reduced running time, water
and energy consumption are increased.

Half load *

If you have only a few items to wash (e.g.
glasses, cups, plates), you can switch to
"half load". This will save water, energy
and time. It is recommended to put a little
less detergent in the detergent dispenser
than for a full load.

Hygiene *

The temperature is increased during
the rinsing process. This increases the
hygiene status. This additional option
is ideal for cleaning e.g. chopping boards
and baby bottles.

IntensiveZone *

Perfect for a mixed load. You can wash
very soiled pots and pans in the lower
basket together with normally soiled
utensils in the upper basket. The spray
pressure in the lower basket is intensified,
the rinsing temperature is increased

Extra drying

An increased temperature during the final
rinse and an extended drying phase mean
that even plastic parts dry well. There is a
slight increase in the energy consumption.

Programme data

The programme data (consumption
values) can be found in the summary
of instructions. They refer to normal
conditions and the water hardness set
. Different influencing factors
such as water temperature or line
pressure may result in deviations.

Aqua sensor *

* depending on model
The Aqua sensor is an optical measuring
device (light barrier) which measures the
turbidity of the rinsing water.
The Aqua sensor is used according to the
programme. If the Aqua sensor is active,
"clean" rinsing water can be transferred to
the next rinse bath and water consumption
can be reduced by 3–6 litres. If the
turbidity is greater, the water is drained
and is replaced with fresh water. In the
automatic programmes the temperature
and running time can also be adjusted
to the degree of soiling.
