Hints and tips
To save energy
Place dishes in the machine immediately after every meal and wait until the dishwasher is full before washing. If necessary run the Rinse and Hold programme (see Programme Chart on the following pages), so that any food scraps do not become caked on the dishes while you are waiting to run the complete wash programme. Do not prewash dishes under running water. Select an economic programme when the dishes are not very soiled, following the instructions given in the "Washing programmes" chart.
Items not suitable for dishwashers:
The following items should not be washed in the dishwasher (unless they are sold as dishwasher proof): - Cutlery with wooden or horn handles or glued parts - bronze cutlery - saucepans with wooden handles - aluminium ware crystal ware leaded glass plastic items antique or fine decorated china
Certain types of decoration can discolour when washed in a dishwasher.
For best washing results:
Before loading remove all scraps of food and soak very heavily soiled pots and pans. Arrange saucepans, cups and glasses etc. upside-down. Tilt items with convex or concave surfaces so that the water drains off easily. Avoid contact between the dishes as far as possible. You will improve drying results by leaving the dishwasher door ajar for at least 15-30 minutes as soon as the programme finishes. Wait a few minutes before removing the dishes; in this way they will be cooler and the drying will be improved. Empty the lower basket first and then the upper one; this will avoid water dripping from the upper basket onto the dishes in the lower one.
Crystal-ware and plastic objects, if not guaranteed dishwasher proof should be washed by hand. Certain types of glass can also become opaque after being washed several times in a dishwasher. A chemical reaction can occur between silver cutlery and stainless steel cutlery. As a precaution, do not wash together. Iron and cast iron objects can rust and stain other items. Aluminium tends to go black, copper, pewter and brass tend to stain. If in doubt check with manufacturer of the item. When buying new dishes, ensure that they are dishwasher proof.
