Intensive wash for items in the bottom basket: intensiveZone.

Selecting the intesiveZone wash option increases the water spray pressure in the bottom basket, creating a power cleaning zone that is ideal for very dirty dishes and heavily soiled pots and pans.

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.

When you need clean dishes in a hurry: varioSpeed.

Ever needed your dishes cleaned quickly, forgotten to put the dishwasher on in the morning, or simply needed clean plates before your guests arrive? varioSpeed is the perfect time saver, giving you the flexibility to speed up your wash so you can spend time on more important things.

Ideal when you need your cutlery and plates in a hurry, just press the varioSpeed button in conjunction with your desired program to save up to 50% of wash time without any compromise on results.

Create more room above, or below.

All 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.

rackMatic Plus allows you to effortlessly adjust the height of the top basket through three different levels to provide you with ultimate loading flexibility. You gain 2.5cm of height each time it is raised through its three stages, and it can even be raised and lowered when it is fully loaded.

Child safety door lock.

Prevent unintended access during the wash cycle by utilising the child safety door lock.

Lifetime warranty against water damage: hydroSafe anti-flood protection.

The hydroSafe anti-flood protection 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, provided the dishwasher is switched on at the mains.

Quiet. Powerful. Efficient: iQdrive.

Consisting of two high-performance brushless motors and the wash and drain pumps, the iQdrive is the quietest, fastest and most durable system ever built by Siemens. The frictionless drive also offers energy saving benefits, by remaining cool and eliminating energy loss and faults typically caused by frictional heat. The wash and drain pumps also eliminate unpleasant pump noises by cutting out as soon as the water is drained, avoiding any air intake and the loud ‘gurgle’ sound that comes with it.

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 results at the push of a button.

In Automatic programs, a hydroSensor monitors the soiling of the water and controls the amount and time of the water supply, as well as the cleaning temperature, to achieve the optimum result with as little energy and water as possible.
