What is the hand wash mode on Thermador dishwasher?

Thermador dishwashers do not have a specific "Hand Wash Mode" as a pre-set wash cycle option. However, many modern dishwashers, including some Thermador models, offer a delicate or gentle cycle that functions similarly to a hand wash mode. The delicate or gentle cycle is designed for more delicate items, such as fine china, crystal, glassware, and other fragile dishes that require extra care during the cleaning process. This cycle uses lower water pressure, milder detergent, and reduced agitation to prevent damage to delicate items while still effectively cleaning them. If your Thermador dishwasher does not have a pre-set delicate cycle, you can achieve a similar hand wash effect by following these steps: 1. Pre-rinse delicate items: Before loading delicate items into the dishwasher, pre-rinse them by hand using warm water and a soft sponge or cloth. This step helps remove any large food particles and reduces the risk of clogging the dishwasher's filter. 2. Load items carefully: Place delicate items securely in the dishwasher, ensuring they are not touching or bumping into each other during the wash cycle. 3. Use a gentle cycle: If your dishwasher has adjustable settings, select a gentle or delicate cycle if available. If not, choose a shorter cycle with lower temperature and reduced agitation. 4. Use a mild detergent: Opt for a dishwasher detergent specifically designed for delicate items or select a detergent with lower or no additives like bleach or heavy chemicals. 5. Avoid high-temperature options: Higher temperatures can be harsh on delicate items, so avoid using the sanitize or high-temperature options when washing them. 6.Skip the drying cycle: To further protect delicate items, consider opening the dishwasher door slightly at the end of the wash cycle to allow air drying or choose a "No Heat Dry" option if available. It's essential to check your dishwasher's user manual for specific guidelines on cleaning delicate items and to follow the manufacturer's recommendations for proper care and maintenance of your Thermador dishwasher.
