- Cutlery and utensils made of wood.

- Utensils which are soiled with ash, wax, lubricating grease or ink.
Aluminium and silver parts have a tendency to discolour and fade during the wash cycle. Even some types of glass (e.g. crystal glass objects) may turn cloudy after many wash cycles.
Glass and utensil damage
- Glass type and glass production process.
- Chemical composition of the detergent.
- Water temperature of the wash programme.
- Use only glasses and porcelain which the manufacturer designates as dishwasher-proof.
- Use a detergent which protects utensils.
- Take glass and cutlery out of the dishwasher as soon as possible after the programme ends.
Loading the dishwasher
1. Remove large food remnants. It is not necessary to prerinse utensils under running water.
2. Place the utensils so that
– they are secure and cannot tip over.
– all utensils with their openings face down.
– parts with curves or indentations are at an angle, thereby allowing water to drain.
– they do not obstruct rotation of the spray arms 23 and 24.
Very small utensils should not be washed in the machine, as they may fall out of the baskets.
Unloading the dishwasher
To prevent water from dripping off the upper basket onto the utensils in the lower basket, it is recommended to empty the appliance from the bottom up.
