Last updated 15/10/2019 08:54


  • Discolored dishwasher baskets or spray arms

  • Brown deposits in the dishwasher

  • Red deposits in the dishwasher

Applies to:

  • freestanding dishwasher
  • integrated dishwasher


1. Examine the drain. 

Check for any large residue/deposit and remove them.

2. Clean the appliance, including the rubber gasket of the door, with a soft damp cloth.

3. Run long duration programmes at least 2 times per month.

If you regularly use only short duration programmes, these can leave deposits of grease and limescale inside the appliance.

4. Use monthly a specific cleaning product for dishwashers. 

Follow carefully the instructions on the packaging of the product.

We recommend specialized detergents available from our Webshop.


  • Tomato and pasta sauces can leave red deposits on other items and appliance components. These deposits can be removed using a specialized detergent.
  • Terra cotta objects can cause brown deposits on other objects in the dishwasher.
