A Great Dishwasher Model
Member Name: topsyturvy
Advantages: good settings, quiet when running, adjustable
This dishwasher has a nice simple design to it, it is white in colour and on the top left has the Beko logo and the knob for setting the wash. It also has all of the buttons and light notifications on the top as well as a numerical explanation of what each choice will do and to the right is the on/off button. Under the top panel you push on the top of the door and then pull it down and inside is where all the dishes and cutlery go, there is the top drawer which pulls out and is mainly for bowls, cups, glasses and then the bottom section has room for cutlery, plates etc. The measurements of this dishwasher are 85cm (H) x 60cm (W) x 75 (D).
To start with, this dishwasher has a lot of good points about it, it has 5 programmes and 4 wash settings and it has 12 place settings and indicator lights for each of the programmes. It has an 'A' Cleaning Performance and Drying Performance, it also has a stainless steel interior and floor protection. There is an adjustable rinse aid dosage and hot air drying system and it comes with a removable cutlery basket and the height on the adjustable cup racks on upper basket can be adjusted. Not just listing of all of the features though, it also has a maximum plate height on the lower basket of 31cm diameter and on the upper basket it is 25cm.
Loading this dishwasher is easy and so is unloading it really, the removable cutlery basket is great when you want to take everything out without fiddling around and it is good for cleaning. The different programmes on this dishwasher are Pre-Wash which as no heat and lasts 15 minutes, there is then Rapid which is 35 degrees and is a 30 minute wash. Next is Economy at 50 degrees which lasts 146 minutes and Quick and Clean which runs at 60 degrees and goes on for 58 minutes and then lastly there is Intensive at 70 degree which goes on for 115 minutes. I vary the washes depending on what dishes are going in but usually I'll use Quick and Clean.
This dishwasher has 4 height adjustable feet and isn't too loud when it runs as well as I can barely hear it. The upper basket has folding racks and salt and rinse aid indicators. The lower rack has folding plate supports and to set the dishwasher to a certain setting you just need to turn the knob as it is numbered 1 to 5 and then it will run. You have light indicators to show the progress of the wash it starts at On/Off then will go to Wash, Dry and then End so it is easy to keep track of the progress of the wash. In terms of power this dishwasher has a water consumption of 15(L) and an Energy Consumption of 307kWh per stand and cycle.
I will always make sure this is full loaded when it runs and always adjust heights and make sure everything is sat in and add in my dishwasher cleaner. Once it is on, I usually leave it to run and find that when I open it and all of the steam goes, it smells fresh and all of my dishes are clean. There will always be the odd dishes that don't clean first time so may need to go in a second time but I haven't had any major problems with this model yet. I feel there is a good enough choice of cycles to choose from on this and the cleaning power is always pretty good too. It is easy to load, it is like most dishwashers in its layout so nothing too difficult to grasp.
This is a great dishwasher, very reliable and the fact it is quiet and doesn't run too long is helpful as well and I don't find it has any real problems. You just need to make sure that everything is placed securely in this when it is time to load it. Having read lots of customer reviews on this product, it always gets a very good write up, I'd now buy Beko for my home after having gotten so used to this one at work, it is just so easy to switch on and run and it cleans so well usually the first time that I don't need to worry about putting it on again afterwards. This is ideal for any household as it holds a lot of dishes inside and it a standard sized dishwasher.
This dishwasher can be purchased from eBay where it will cost anything from £45 upwards depending on who is selling it as it is an older model now but you will find it if you look around.
