I have been using the Eco setting for ten years, tonight I decided to use the Intensive.What's the difference.(my dishes are dirty,dirty...hence the Intensive setting.)

Dishes are clean and out of dishwasher.Upon inspection, 99% of various cups, saucers, plastic containers, look very clean... but one plate was still unacceptably 'clean'. Will go back to ECO, for not so dirty dishes. 'Solar panel energy' houses might find this useful.

Using the 'intensive' high temperature program once a month will give your dishwasher a spring clean and flush out the scum from the heating pipes and outlets.

I know on supervisor that would have my "guts for garters" if the dishes aren't washed properly.

The diahwasher in our house doesn't need any settings at all. Works well all the time. ME!!

The intensive wash, uses about 25% more water than the eco wash.I know this because the waste water is channelled into a 40 litre water container, which I empty after each wash.The intensive uses 40 litres of water, the eco uses 30 litres.I can't wait to try out the normal wash cycle!
