Loading and detergent

Details information on discarding scraps, loading dishes carefully, and adding detergent and rinse aid.


Discard scraps

Scrape large food particles off (e.g. bones, fruit stones) and remove any foreign objects (e.g. toothpicks, strings, paper).


Load dishes carefully

To help with wash performance, arrange dishes so they are evenly spaced and not nesting


Check spray arm(s)

Ensure there are no items blocking the spray arm(s) from rotating.


Add detergent and check rinse aid

Fill the detergent dispenser ( a) with powdered detergent and close the dispenser door.


Do not place liquid detergent or tablets in the detergent dispenser.

If the indicator on its plug (c) glows bright red, refill the rinse aid dispenser (b) with liquid rinse aid. Make sure you then refit the rinse aid plug back into its original position.

If using a tablet, place it in the cutlery basket (d) or at the bottom of the drawer.
