Energy consumption, water consumption and noise level can be measured with best equipment is quite.
Programs and Features
The standard program is the austerity program of 50 ° C. The highest temperatures are in the baby-Protect and the intensive program at 70 ° C. The program Quick & Clean will quickly achieve good results with 65 ° C. The fine program washes at 40 ° C and the applet rinsed for 30 minutes at 35 ° C.

As a special highlight of the manufacturer refers to the automatic program , which determined via sensors themselves to dirty the dishes are and the flushing adjusts accordingly.
The machine has a brushless DC motor, an innovative pump with electronic control , water consumption, energy consumption and time intelligently coordinated. The automatic start time can be set up to 9 hours in advance. The display shows also, if salt or rinse aid must be refilled. The duty cycle of the austerity program (Eco) 179 minutes. A sequence display does not exist. The rinsing can be seen significant differences between longer and shorter wash cycles. The machine delivers flawless results in longer programs, while the short programs are not quite as convincing. The efficient use of energy and water in the shorter programs is not as good as at the longer.
