The service manual when downloaded and printed out was clear and easy to read. The manual is complete with the schematic diagram and technical data. I occasionally require a manual and now having registered with this company I shall order from them in the future.

Loading cutlery and dishes
Sponges, cleaning cloths and any other objects that can absorb water must not be washed in the dishwasher. Plastic and Teflon-coated dishes and pans tend to retain water droplets. These dishes and pans therefore do not dry as well as those made of china and stainless steel.
For washing in the dishwasher, the following cutlery/dishes/pots and pans are not suitable: â¢ Cutlery with wooden, horn, china or mother of pearl handles â¢ Plastic items that are not heat resistant â¢ Older cutlery with cement that is sensitive to temperature â¢ Dishes or cutlery with glued parts â¢ Pewter or copper items â¢ Lead crystal glass â¢ Steel items that rust â¢ Wooden boards/platters â¢ Items made from synthetic materials are of limited suitability: â¢ Only wash stoneware in the dishwasher if it is specifically marked by the manufacturer as being dishwasher-safe. â¢ Glazed patterns may fade if washed very frequently in the dishwasher. â¢ Silver and aluminium parts have a tendency to discolour during washing. Food remains, e.g. egg white, egg yolk and mustard often cause discoloration and staining on silver. Therefore always clean food residues from silver immediately, if it is not to be washed straight after use. â¢ Glass can become dull after a large number of washes.
â¢ Before loading the dishes, you should: â Remove the worst of the food residues. â Soak pans with burnt-on food residues. â¢ When loading the dishes and cutlery, please note: â Dishes and cutlery must not impede the rotation of the spray arms. â Load bowls, cups, glasses, pans, etc. with the opening downwards so that water cannot collect in them â Dishes and items of cutlery must not lie inside one another or cover one another â To avoid damage to glasses, they must not touch one another â Donât put small items (e.g. lids) in the baskets for the dishes, but in the cutlery basket, so that they canât fall through the holes.
