Care and cleaning

Before maintenance, deactivate the appliance and disconnect the mains plug from the main socket.

Cleaning the filters

The filter system is made of 3 parts.

  1. Turn the filter (B) counterclockwise and remove it.
  2. Remove the filter (C) out of filter (B).
  3. Remove the flat filter (A).
  4. Wash the filters.
  5. Make sure that there are no residues of food or soil in or around the edge of the sump.
  6. Put back in place the flat filter (A). Make sure that it is correctly positioned under the 2 guides.
  7. Reassemble the filters (B) and (C).
  8. Put back the filter (B) in the flat filter (A). Turn it clockwise until it locks.
An incorrect position of the filters can cause bad washing results and damage to the appliance.

Cleaning the spray arms

Do not remove the spray arms. If the holes in the spray arms are clogged, remove remaining parts of soil with a thin pointed object.

External cleaning

  • Clean the appliance with a moist soft cloth.

  • Only use neutral detergents.

  • Do not use abrasive products, abrasive cleaning pads or solvents.

Internal cleaning

  • Carefully clean the appliance, including the rubber gasket of the door, with a soft damp cloth.

  • If you regularly use short duration programmes, these can leave deposits of grease and limescale inside the appliance. To prevent this, we recommend to run long duration programmes at least 2 times per month.

  • To maintain the performance of your appliance at its best, we recommend to use monthly a specific cleaning product for dishwashers. Follow carefully the instructions on the packaging of the product.
