Efficient, durable and quiet: the iQdrive motor.

Lower energy consumption with identical performance, short programme times with optimum results and always nice and quiet whatever the programme – all that is not a problem for the iQdrive motor. And on top of all these advantages, it runs virtually free from wear.

Can be loaded easily and flexibly: varioFlex baskets.

The upper basket is equipped with up to three foldable, dividable levels and two flip tines, and the bottom basket with up to four flip tines. This gives you flexibility during loading. In addition, the handles on the two baskets make them easier to slide out.

Gentle on top, high pressure below: the intensiveZone.

Selecting the intesiveZone increases the water spraying pressure for very dirty dishes in the lower rack. In the upper rack the programme remains unchanged and delicate dishes are still gently cleaned.

Wash and dry twice as fast: varioSpeed.

If you opt for the varioSpeed function, any dishwashing program you select will be up to 50% faster. This doesn't apply to the pre-rinse and quick wash programmes (29 minutes). Sparkling clean dishes – and dry as well.

Not just for your cutlery, but also for your espresso cups: the varioDrawer.

The varioDrawer offers an additional loading level. Thanks to its special design it not only provides room for cutlery, but also for ladles, salad servers and even small items of crockery such as espresso cups. And as there is no longer a cutlery basket in the bottom basket, there is now space for a total of 14 standard place settings.

Loading lots of dishes is easy:

The basket is equipped with special devices at the top. If they are pressed, the height of the top basket can be easily adjusted in three stages. That makes loading and unloading simpler, particularly when dealing with large pots or plates.

Releases the full strength of the detergent: dosageAssist.

The cleaning tablet falls directly into a small catch pan thanks to dosageAssist. A precisely aimed jet of water quickly dissolves it. The detergent is distributed evenly throughout the machine, always guaranteeing optimum cleaning results for you.

More flexibility during loading: the height-adjustable top basket.

Many Siemens dishwashers are equipped with height-adjustable top baskets for flexible loading of dishes of different heights. Whether you want to load tall glasses on top or large plates on the bottom, you can easily accommodate large dishware by adjusting the height of the top basket.

Lifetime warranty against water damage: aquaStop®.

The aquaStop® safety system prevents water damage of any kind, whether in the supply hose or from a leak in the machine. Siemens warranties this safety for the life of the dishwasher.

Gentle, safe, clean: the glassCare System.

The glassCare System – consisting of glass protection technology, a special gentle programme, and a heat exchanger – will wash your glassware with the greatest of care.

Optimum dishwashing results at the touch of a button: autoProgramme.

After the autoProgramme button has been pressed, aquaSensor checks how dirty the water is and controls when and how much clean water is added as well as the dishwashing temperature.

Clean less: antiFingerprint.

The antiFingerprint feature puts an end to

annoying fingerprints on stainless steel.
