Mode function - your shortcut to clean dishes

    We have created different modes to make it easy for you to adapt your favorite dishwashing programme to new situations. Instead of choosing from a long list of programs and then a long list of different options and settings, you can now simply choose one appropriate mode and press start. 

    Silent night

    For all of us who let the dishwasher work while we sleep, we have created night mode. With this mode the water pressure in the spray arms is lowered, reducing the noise level by as much as 2 dB compared to the tested value. This mode is also perfect for open plan solutions with seamless kitchen and living spaces.

    Green mode

    Green mode saves both water and energy. The temperature is lowered and each stage of the cycle is extended to save water and achieve the same perfect washing results as a normal programme.

    Speed mode

    If you want your dishes ready faster, simply select speed mode to reduce the programme time by 50%. To achieve the best possible washing results in the time available, more water and energy are used.

    Intensive mode

    Select this mode when you have dirty dishes with dried food. Intensive mode increases the spray arm pressure and more heat and water are used during the cycle.

    Quick Pro Wash

    This is a programme inspired by the world of professional dishwashers where speed is the key. The Quick Pro Wash programme is perfect when you know that you will need the same crockery, glasses or other utensils several times on the same occasion.


    The hygiene program can be used to thoroughly clean infant bottles and other items that should be kept clean at all times. In the primary wash and final rinse cycles, for example, we raise the temperature to 158°F to prevent bacteria growth and remove odors from chopping boards. This is also great for thoroughly cleaning jars if you make your own jam or marmalade. The end effect is exceptionally clean and hygienic.


    The Self-cleaning program ensures that the tub, water recycling tank and spray system are thoroughly cleaned. Regular cleaning is essential for both washing performance and the machine’s longevity. Use standard detergent, citric acid or a special dishwasher cleaning agent.
