THIS PROGRAM IS NOT INTENDED TO REPLACE THE REGULAR FILTERS AND SPRAY ARMS CLEANING

The remainder of this cleaning program is determined automatically by the dishwasher.

When the appliance detects the need for cleaning, the indicator  “Machine Care” lights up.

Proceed as follows:

1. First, clean the filters and spray arms. Refer to the user manual for detailed guidance.

Tips for saving energy at home when using your dishwasher

With energy prices soaring, it’s never been a better time to rethink how you use the appliances in your home to save energy and money. Besides helping your household budget, it will also benefit the planet, reducing CO2 emissions. Here are some helpful tips on how to reduce energy when using your dishwasher

  • Use the ECO program when dishwashing. It takes a bit longer, but the dishwasher doesn’t have to work as hard, which means it uses less energy. Compare it to if you run or walk 1km. Running is faster but you need to use a lot more energy. If you walk instead it takes longer, but you use much less energy. The same logic goes for the ECO program
  • If you have an hourly electricity rate, do the dishes when the price is at its lowest 
  • If you have an old dishwasher, it will have a low energy class – you can save energy just by replacing it with a new one
