For the best performance of the dishwasher, follow these loading guidelines.
Features and appearance of baskets and cutlery baskets may vary from your model.
Place objects in the dishwasher in the following way:
- Items such as cups, glasses, pots/pans, etc. are faced downwards.
- Curved items, or ones with recesses, should be loaded aslant so that water can runoff.
- All utensils are stacked securely and can not tip over.
- All utensils are placed in a way that the spray arms can rotate freely during washing.
- Load hollow items such as cups, glasses, pans, etc. With the opening facing downwards so that water cannot collect in the container or a deep base.
- Dishes and items of cutlery must not lie inside one another, or cover each other.
- To avoid damage, glasses should not touch one another.
- The upper basket is designed to hold more delicate and lighter dishware such as glasses, coffee, and teacups.
- Long bladed knives stored in an upright position are a potential hazard!
- Long and/or sharp items of cutlery such as carving knives must be positioned horizontally in the upper basket.
- Please do not overload your dishwasher. This is important for good results and reasonable consumption of energy.
Loading the upper basket
The upper basket is designed to hold more delicate and lighter dishware such as glasses, coffee and teacups, and saucers, as well as plates, small bowl,s and shallow pans (as long as they are not too dirty). Position the dishes and cookware so that they will not get moved by the spray of water.
Loading the lower basket
We suggest that you place large items and the most difficult to clean items are to be placed into the lower basket: such as pots, pans, lids, serving dishes, and bowls, as shown in the figure below. It is preferable to place serving dishes and lids on the side of the racks to avoid blocking the rotation of the top spray arm.
The maximum diameter advised for plates in front of the detergent dispenser is 19 cm, this is not to hamper the opening of it.
Loading the cutlery basket
Cutlery should be placed in the cutlery rack separately from each other in the appropriate positions, and do make sure the utensils do not nest together, this may cause bad performance.
To prevent water dripping from the upper basket into the lower basket, we recommend that you empty the lower basket first, followed by the upper basket. Items will be hot! To prevent damage, do not take glass and cutlery out of the dishwasher for around 15 minutes after the program has ended.
The rinse aid is released during the final rinse to prevent water from forming droplets on your dishes, which can leave spots and streaks. It also improves drying by allowing water to roll off the dishes. Your dishwasher is designed to use liquid rinse aids.
The frequency of refill depends on how often dishes are washed and the rinse aid setting used. The Low Rinse Aid indicator will appear on the display when more rinse aid is needed. Do not overfill the rinse aid dispenser.
Adjusting the rinse aid reservoir
- To achieve a better drying performance with limited rinse aid, the dishwasher is designed to adjust the consumption by the user. Follow the below steps.
- Switch on the appliance.
- Within 60 seconds after step 1, press the Start/Pause button for more than 5 seconds, and then press the Delay button to enter the set model, the rinse aid indication blinks as 1Hz frequency.
- Press the Start/Pause button to select the proper set according to your using habits, the sets will change in the following sequence: D1->D2->D3->D4->D5->D1.
- The higher the number, the more rinse aid the dishwasher uses.
- Without operation in 5 seconds or pressing the power button to exit the set model, the set success.
Door and the door seal
- Clean the door seals regularly with a soft damp cloth to remove food deposits.
- When the dishwasher is being loaded, food and drink residues may drip onto the sides of the dishwasher door. These surfaces are outside the wash cabinet and are not accessed by water from the spray arms. Any deposits should be wiped off before the door is closed.
The control panel
- If cleaning is required, the control panel should be wiped with a soft damp cloth only.
- The filtering system in the base of the wash cabinet retains coarse debris from the washing cycle. The collected coarse debris may cause the filters to clog.
- Check the condition of the filters regularly and clean them if necessary, under running water.
- Hold the coarse filter and rotate it anticlockwise to unlock the filter. Lift the filter upwards and out of the dishwasher.
- The fine filter can be pulled off the bottom of the filter assembly.
- The coarse filter can be detached from the main filter by gently squeezing the tabs at the top and pulling it away.
- Larger food remnants can be cleaned by rinsing the filter under running water.
- For a more thorough clean, use a soft cleaning brush
Reassemble the filters in the reverse order of the disassembly, replace the filter insert, and rotate clockwise to the close arrow.
It is necessary to clean the spray arms regularly for hard water chemicals will clog the spray arm jets and bearings.
To clean the spray arms, follow the instructions below:
To remove the upper spray arm, hold the nut in the center still and rotate the spray arm clockwise to remove it.
To remove the lower spray arm, pull out the spray arm upward.
Wash the arms in soapy and warm water and use a soft brush to clean the jets. Replace them after rinsing them thoroughly.
