My appliance won't fill correctly

If your appliance does not fill then please check to see if the water taps at the back of your dishwasher are turned on, and that the pipes are also not squashed or kinked.

In order to be able to fill, it must firstly be able to drain. Please see the issue below "My dishwasher wont empty" for more advice on plumbing drainage.

If you need further help please call our customer service team on 0344 822 4224.

My appliance won't empty correctly

Please check to see if your waste hose has been installed correctly. If your appliance empties into an under-sink waste system, then please ensure that the capped end of the waste spigot is removed. Please also check to see if the filter at the bottom of the appliance is free from any blockages and is clean.

Check that the pipe has not been kinked or even trapped somewhere, as any of these two can result in the waste water failing to empty out of the appliance correctly.

If you need further help please call our customer service team on 0344 822 4224.

My cutlery has become rusty / brown

Pots and pans can become rusty or brown when they are cleaned in the appliance.

Rust can also spread onto other items like the tub of your appliance or other cutlery. We would recommend that you refrain from washing pots and pans that are made from cast iron in the appliance.

If you need further help please call our customer service team on 0344 822 4224.

My glassware / dishes are being left with white / cloudy marking

If you are noticing, that at the end of a wash cycle, your dishes and / or glasses are appearing to be cloudy or white, then this could be due to a possible deposit of calcium. We recommend that you use our dishwasher salt. This salt, improves wash performance and at the same time protects your dishwasher.
