Where to start operation?

Buy dishwasher to facilitate the work of the hostess and provide reasonable water savings. From the outset not to prepare yourself of unpleasant surprises, installation and connection of the appliance must be left to professionals.

Thus, the machine is placed in a place reserved for her, and the water supply and drain are connected. Now you can start its operation.

Why do we need "idle" start?

The Bosch company, as well as a number of other manufacturers of home appliances, it is strongly recommended to conduct a test run of the dishwashing machine.

Make a "blank" start is necessary for the following reasons:

  • should be removed accidentally preserved in detail products and lubricants, as well as dust and litter, trapped inside;
  • we get the opportunity to check how well the machine is installed, to estimate the speed water flow, the level of its heat, to see how the whole work process flows, including drain stage and drying;
  • the detection of faults, it becomes possible to fix them in the test washing step, eliminating time consuming unloading dishes.

We know that under normal cleaning without special tools can not do, but also a test run in this sense is no exception.

You will need a special salt and other detergents included in the starter kitThat buyers usually offer to purchase, along with a dishwasher.

Trial run
A trial run of the dishwasher needs, first of all, to check the quality of its installation and make sure of serviceability of the unit

The algorithm first switching

What we need to know about the operating conditions of the purchased equipment, as is the level of water hardness in the area where her work will take place.

With Bosch machines you're in luck: the buyers of this company do not need to be guided by their experience in the determination of hardness, as well as recourse to national methods.

The complete set of some models of this brand includes test strips to determine the stiffness. It is necessary simply to lower the paper strip with the deposited reagents on its surface in the water for a couple of seconds.

Then compare it with the manufacturer of the application table. Following these simple manipulations, you're ready for a trial run of its acquisition.

Installation diagram dishwasher
The correct connection of the dishwasher requires its installation in a certain place to put it (1) and attachment to an electrical system (2), water (3) and the water drain (4) by means of hoses and regular cord feeding

Start-up procedure is quite simple. Consistently follow these steps:

  • open carPulling on her door;
  • pull out the lower basketTo secure access to a cover covering the reservoir for water softening salt;
  • unscrew the cap, pour water into the tank and pour it into a special salt of the starter kit;
  • Screw the reservoir capAnd water, which could result in the camera during salt loading, remove the cloth;
  • Now on the control panel Set salt consumption taking into account the previously determined water hardness.

Add some clarification. Please note that the water in the salt reservoir is filled only once - before the first start. It has to be poured up to the top.

Salt is filled through a special funnel (or watering), which is usually supplied. If there is no watering, use a regular cup. Absorb salt is necessary as long as it will not be visible through the filler hole.

An opening for loading the salt
In this opening disposed at the bottom of the machine chamber is filled with water and is filled with a special salt for dishwashers

The displaced in the process of filling the water should not confuse you: the way it should be. Once the tank cover is closed, the displaced water should be carefully wipe. It should not be inside the chamber.

It remains to check if the water tap is open, then it is possible to run the process work. To visualize the whole algorithm action, watch the video, which we have placed at the bottom of this article.

Suitable detergents for dishwashers

Members of the dishwasher must buy a starter kit, which they usually offer, together with the main purchase.

You can purchase a separate rinse aid, detergent tablets or a special powder, and salt to soften tap waterOf which we have already spoken.

starter kit
The starter kit includes all cleaning products, without which the operation of any of the dishwasher is simply impossible - it is a mandatory minimum

The advantage of starter kits for beginners is already provided everything you might need them.

In addition, they include producers of products that allows us to hope that their components are not only perfectly compatible, but also complement each other.

Often, buying a set will be cheaper than buying its components sold separately.

Besides the three components absolutely necessary for the efficient washing can be used flavorings and agents that help to clean the machine itself of fat and plaque. Usually buy them as often as they need.

Salt for water softening

For qualitative dishwashing must apply soft water, low calcium salts. If you do not soften hard water, with time on the chamber walls traces of scum formed.

Salt allows to bring the water to a state in which the work equipment pleasing its owner.

Salt in the funnel
Refined salt for loading into the dishwasher should not be confused with ordinary table salt, which is present in every kitchen: a special agent for softening tap water

What tools can I use?

The company Bosch machines can use any cleaning agents that are currently in the market. It can be:

  • pressed tablet;
  • powder;
  • liquid.

The only limitation that must be strictly observed: it must be special substances intended to be loaded into the dishwasher. You can not use chemicals for washing dishes by hand.

Detergents
Detergents used must be designed to handle the cookware is dishwasher safe, and those that can not be used to use for hand washing facilities

Depending on the composition of their constituent components, there are three types of detergents for dishwashers:

  • with chlorine and phosphates;
  • without chlorine, but with phosphates;
  • phosphate-free and chlorine-free.

In the absence of phosphate in the composition means, white coating can be formed on the chamber walls and on the very dish. To avoid such consequences, it is necessary to increase the amount of detergent.

The absence of chlorine will not provide the desired effect if the cookware requires bleaching. The dark coating on plastic dishes and ashen - such can be the result of lack of chlorine.

Save the situation sink high intensity or an increase in detergent consumption.

Why do I need a conditioner?

When using a conditioner entering the chamber at the last stage of washing, water drops do not leave marks on the dishes.

If not use this drug in the process of the machine, after drying on Glassware remain unsightly smudges. In addition, it provides a high quality rinse clean dishes shine.

Rinse aid is poured into the cuvette
Rinses give the glass the same luster and shine, which seeks any hostess, but it is important to use them to the extent that the dishes do not become sticky and covered with whitish or iridescence

The volume of the rinse aid can be changed depending on the need. If this fluid were not enough on their plates you will see a white film, they dim. In this case, the dose is increased.

Excess drug manifest iridescence on the pans. In addition, they will be sticky to the touch. Then reduce the dose.

Special detergents

There are a combination of drugs, which are called the "three in one". They contain all three components listed above.

A disadvantage of such means is the inability to adjust the content of salt, as recommended by manufacturers Bosh art.

Too hard water degrades the quality of washing, and the glass too soft promotes corrosion: its composition is washed from calcium.

If you have to wash the silverware, you must use specially designed for that purpose cleaners. The other will not work.

The procedure for loading detergents and then, what kind of cell compartments are located on the inside surface of the door than filled, you can see in the ads, we suggest you look. They are in the last part of the article.

ware Download Rules

There is a basic rule on all Bosch dishwashers. In the unit cell located nebulizers-rocker, through which nozzle liquid on the dishes is poured.

So, cups and plates in boxes should be placed so that their presence in the vicinity of the spray would not hurt them to rotate. You can not lock and opening the cell valve and detergent.

Correct loading of the dishes

Make sure that large food scraps removed. If the machine has an option of soaking, then it can be used for washing large pots.

If soaking is missing, the remains of food from the surface of the brush is removed. Buy it in household goods stores.

To improve the washing efficiency, in full accordance with the instruction to machines brand can cutlery and other utensils previously hold under hot water. Fat on the surfaces razmoknet, and it will be easier to wash off.

  • vario;
  • Vario Flex;
  • Vario Flex Plus.

The last in this list box are equipped with extra protection for delicate items needing careful handling. In particular, additional shelves positioned lower box 12 wine glasses with high legs.

It turns out that in these models, while the total number of washable glasses can reach 18 pieces.

Depending on the specific model dishwashers, utensils therein can be loaded in two or three levels. The third level is designed to accommodate the cutlery, as well as items of non-standard sizes.

protection of tableware
Placed in boxes dishwasher Bosch crockery is protected from mechanical damage: the rounded end of the retaining grids are one of the manifestations of such protection

System Rackmatic It helps correctly position the height box. After loading competent ware allows moisture as uniformly as possible to wash it from all sides.

To fix the glasses and cups should be used holders designed for them.

Manipulating holders, you can make a basket deeper or adapt it to contain large items: pots and saucepans.
