The ActiveWater with 4.0 star energy & 5.0 star water for 15 place settings: Perfect results with particularly low energy and minimal water consumption.

Highlights

ActiveWater technology: less water, less energy, more performance.

This innovative rinsing technology maximises efficiency and ensures environmentally friendly rinsing for excellent cleaning results. The water and energy is saved through targeted water distribution, optimised filter technology, faster heating and higher pump performance for increased water circulation.

AquaSensor: soil detection for brilliantly clean dishes.

The AquaSensor regulates the water usage depending on the type and degree of soiling, using light beams to manage the rinse. Depending on remaining food particles, grease or detergent residues in the rinse, the rinsing process is assessed to evaluate whether it needs to be continued.

Automatic programmes ensure the best cleaning performance, automatically.

Water usage, water temperature and rinse time are adjusted exactly to suit the level of soiling. This provides best results while saving water and energy.

AquaStop for added security and safety against water damage.

The AquaStop system cuts off the water supply directly at the tap outlet in the case of leaks. AquaStop operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, provided the dishwasher is switched on at the mains.

LoadSensor automatically saves water and energy for fewer dishes.

The load weight is detected by a rotary speed sensor which adjusts the water level. The load sensor provides optimal water usage even for half loads or partial loads, saving water and electricity.

DosageAssist ensures optimum results thanks to effective dissolving of detergent tablets.

The DosageAssist ensures optimal cleaning results and a quieter wash. The detergent drops out the detergent dispenser and into a special tray on the top basket where it gets completely dissolved.

EcoSilence Drive™: powerful, durable, quiet and efficient.

The brushless, frictionless construction of this advanced motor offers maximum efficiency, economy, durability and performance. Plus, with up to three levels of sound insulation and targeted spray jets, the result is a dishwasher that's even quieter.

Glass 40° programme: the extra gentle rinse programme for best cleaning, optimum drying and brilliant shine.

The new glass 40° programme gently cleans glasses such as high-quality crystal glasses, while providing optimum drying and achieving a brilliant shine. This is made possible through lower temperatures, an adjustment in the rinsing agent temperature and an extension of the drying period. Shiny glasses and residue-free drying are clear proof of a brilliant and gentle cleaning result.

HalfLoad option: saves time, water and electricity.

HalfLoad option provides the best possible wash performance for dishes stacked anywhere in the dishwasher, unlike other systems that only wash in either the top or bottom baskets.

HygienePlus option: Rinsing with higher temperatures for highest hygienic performance.

HygienePlus is a new option that can be activated in many programmes, and guarantees maximum hygiene thanks to antibacterial cleaning. This effect is achieved by a higher temperature level of up to 70°C during rinsing, sustained for approximately 10 minutes. HygienePlus is therefore ideal for people with high hygiene requirements, for instance in households with small children or allergy sufferers.

IntensiveZone: effectively cleans pots and pans at the press of a button.

The IntensiveZone option, which can be added to many programmes, ensures a higher spraying pressure and increases the temperature in the lower basket. Heavily soiled pots and pans are cleaned optimally whilst more delicate dishes can be placed in the upper basket.

Child lock on door prevents unintended door opening and button tampering.

A child-proof door lock prevents the door from being opened and the programme being altered during the cycle. This prevents injuries caused by hot steam and accidental adjustments to the programme settings.

Easy pre-select programme start for the desired start time.

With the time delay function you can pre-select the programme for the desired start time. This allows you to handle your appliance conveniently, at any time during the day, during work hours or at night. After the start of the programme a display indicates the precise remaining time.

VarioFlex basket system for higher flexibility in the upper and lower basket.

The VarioFlex basket system provides increased flexibility inside the silver-colored baskets. The upper basket features four movable elements (two foldable racks and two shelves) and offers room for glasses, saucers, cups and cutlery as well as for long-stemmed wine glasses and pots. Thanks to four moveable foldable racks there is also room for larger pots and dishes in the lower basket.

Space for cutlery and small kitchen utensils in the VarioDrawer.

Thanks to the retractable VarioDrawer third loading level, ActiveWater dishwashers are even more accessible and give you more flexibility when loading your dishwasher The cutlery basket in the lower basket can be replaced by the VarioDrawer to create capacity for up to 14 place settings for 60cm dishwashers and 10 place settings for 45cm dishwashers.

Washes in almost half the time with optimum cleaning and drying results thanks to VarioSpeed.

You can reduce the wash time by almost half with the VarioSpeed option. All this with best cleaning and drying results – as usual.

Heat Exchanger: Maximises perfomance and efficiency.

The heat recycling reservoir located in the side panel of the machine maximises the performance by using heat that is generated in each cycle to pre-heat cold water used for the next cycle before it enters the dishwasher. The heat exchanger also works effectively as a residual heat drying system which is extremely energy efficient and a gentle form of drying.
