Thanks to partnering with Amazon Alexa, your dishwasher can be controlled by voice as well. Please find out, if the relevant “Home Connect” skill within the Alexa app is available for your country & language. Activate the respective skill to establish the connection between Amazon Alexa and your home appliance. Activating the Extra Dry option dries your dishes extra-thoroughly by higher temperatures during the rinse cycle and a longer drying phase – with just one push of a button. Sometimes you need an extra silent environment at home to focus on your daily chores. The Silence on demand function can be activated via the Home Connect App and silences your dishwasher whenever necessary. It reduces noise to a minimum for up to 30 minutes at any time by an active pause while the dishwasher keeps on running. With the Silence on demand function you can focus on what matters most. InfoLight® projects a red light onto the floor during the wash cycle so you know when your dishwasher is running. The light turns off when dishes are ready. Selecting the right wash program for your dishwasher can not only be confusing, but can often result in reduced cleaning performance. Home Connect with Easy Start function takes the guesswork out of this job and always recommends the right program to you – directly from your mobile device. The only thing you need to do is enter the degree of soiling, type and quantity of the dishes or cutlery being washed. So you can easily choose the right program for perfect results, cycle after cycle. Running out of dishwasher tablets is the last thing you want when you need clean dishes. The Tab Counter on the Home Connect app tracks your consumption and informs you via push notification when you’re down to your last five tablets according to your last purchase. Finally, a dishwasher that looks after itself.
