Highlights

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
