1. Always run full loads
“Less is more” might be a good principle, but it’s not ideal for your dishwasher loads. Running your dishwasher in multiple batches consumes more water and energy than running it once a day. Not only that, but loading multiple sets of kitchenware also takes more fuss.
To unload the dishes after washing faster and more easily, you should choose a dishwasher with trays that are easy to lift and pull in, pull out.
With our ComfortLift technology in Electrolux dishwasher, you have easier access to your cutlery tray, so you can finish your daily kitchenware load in a breeze.

2. Skip pre-washing before putting your wares to the dishwasher
Even with the right intentions, pre-washing your wares does more harm than good. Instead of pre-rinsing them, simply scrape off food debris before loading your dishes straight to the washer. This saves more water and time in the long run, maximising your washers’ full capacity.

3. Use the right amount of dishwashing liquid
Using more cleaning products doesn’t guarantee a better clean. In fact, using too much dishwashing liquid could leave residue on your kitchenware, which may cause various health complications.
In particular, when you use too much dishwasher detergent, a large amount of foam will be generated, causing water to overflow. This will affect the life of the machine in the long run. So, you should add a sufficient amount of dishwashing liquid, or use dedicated dishwashing salts for dishwashers.

4. Air-dry your wares
Letting your dishes dry naturally saves more energy and protects your kitchenware from excessive heat. This will help you reduce the energy used for drying and prevent the high temperature from damaging the enamel, non-stick surfaces, … of your cooking wares.
Our AirDry technology takes this a step further, finishing each wash cycle with a blast of natural air. After a full wash, our unit opens up around 10cm for air to properly circulate the unit, leaving your dishes dry and ready for storing. You can enjoy the great result without the need for any extra energy.

5. Time your wash cycles wisely
To prepare an efficient dishwashing cycle, simply store used dishes inside the unit throughout the day. After supper, you can load the last batch of kitchenware and let the dishwasher take care of it. With our Delay Start feature, you can set a specific time for your wash programme, allowing a more hands-free experience that you can always rely on. The best time to set up a full wash cycle can be evening or early morning.
