Product information

This roomy dishwasher has a place – and space – for everything. The generous interior holds 15 place settings, plus there’s handy adjustable racking for squeezing in those extra-large dinner plates, pots and pans.

Our Active Drying System provides fast, efficient steam drying, and if you need more plates in a hurry or between courses, the 30-minute cycle takes care of them in double quick time, while the AutoSense programme assesses the size of the load and level of dirt, then sets the time, water and temperature levels to suit. An illuminated LED display includes time remaining, and you can also delay the start time by up to 24 hours to fit the washing around with your busy lifestyle.

Rated A for energy, washing and drying, it’s a super-efficient way to take care of the dishes, plus because we know you like to keep bills down, there’s an energy saving programme too.

Key features:

  • 6 programmes including extra silent and glass care options
  • Auto off function
  • Time remaining display
  • Adjustable racking
  • Anti-flood device

Q & As

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 4 reviewers.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Shame about the design First the good bit, its very quite and looks smart. Now the not so smart, if you press the wrong program you can not change it or speed it up, so if you start the 3 1/2 hour but want to change to the 30min cycle you can't and the top drawer just doesn't work and if you lift up the middle one to get large items in the lower one, the only things that fit are shot glasses and teacups. So i'll be taking out the top drawer and buying a cutlery basket. And don't buy if you want to wash pint or tall glasses as the racks have too short "spikes" to hold them securely 04 September 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Ok shame about the cutlery tray Just bought this to replace our old Miele, as we thought it would be similar. In most respects it is fine and as good, apart from the top cutlery tray which is really annoying, cutlery does not fit as per the diagram, knife handles too heavy, spoons won't hold up in place, teaspoons don't fit, and the overall tray doesn't slide in and out well, it is stiff and jerky. This is surprisingly annoying and on this basis I wouldn't really recommend it. 01 September 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Great machine ...almost I bought this on line without looking at it in the shop. I was attracted by the stylish look and the 30 minute wash. It does a great job of cleaning dishes, looks very smart and is very spacious inside. My only criticism is that it has a cutlery drawer rather than a basket. This frees up a lot of space in the main machine but it's really difficult to position your cutlery! Ours is always falling over and slipping out of position and our teaspoons and spoons are often not clean! Our knives are too heavy to position as per the diagram. To be honest, I'd rather go back to a basket. Other than that, it's a lovely product. 27 August 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Modern and efficient Great silver styling with integrated display that looks very sleek. Takes a huge amount of washing despite being the same size as the previous one and the cutlery tray is a massively useful feature. The middle tray moves up and down so fitting dishes in is easy and when it's running it is lovely and quiet. About the only thing stopping it from getting 5 stars is a design flaw in the handle of the bottom tray, which means food particles can get trapped between it and the door when it's running so you get a dirty mark on the door. 17 July 2014
