Dishwasher baskets or spray arms are discolored


  • Discolored dishwasher baskets or spray arms

  • Brown deposits in the dishwasher

  • Red deposits in the dishwasher

Applies to:
  • freestanding dishwasher
  • integrated dishwasher

1. Examine the drain. Check for any large residue/deposit and remove them

2. Clean the appliance, including the rubber gasket of the door, with a soft damp cloth

3. Run long duration programmes at least 2 times per month

If you regularly use only short duration programmes, these can leave deposits of grease and limescale inside the appliance.

4. Use monthly a specific cleaning product for dishwashers. Follow carefully the instructions on the packaging of the product.

  • Tomato and pasta sauces can leave red deposits on other items and appliance components. These deposits can be removed using a specialized detergent.
  • Terra cotta objects can cause brown deposits on other objects in the dishwasher.
