The landlord and I have been discussing the dishwasher, which he inherited from the builders:
“Have you any idea what the buttons do?”
“I was hoping you might have worked it out.”
“Hmm. Well, so far as I can tell, this red one sets it to leave a liberal coating of small particles of grit all over the mugs and glasses.”
“Right. What about the green one – is that some sort of eco programme? Oh, but then, you’d expect the red one to wash better…”
“…whereas the green one seems to do a better job, yes. But yesterday I opened the door in the middle of a green programme, and the water was cold.”
“But there wasn’t any grit?”
“How about looking for manuals online? And what about that button that appears to be labeled with a stylised mushroom cloud?
“Woo! I found a video of Bosch engineers cleaning the filters!”
“You can hear the zoom button on the camera. And the captions are in Comic Sans.”
My search was not entirely successful. Bosch/Neff have a support site (unlinkable, since it’s inexplicably behind an https cookiewall) from where one’s supposed to be able to download PDFs of instruction manuals, but so far as I can tell it doesn’t actually work. And yes, I tried Virtual PC and an old enough version of IE that it usually does the job with brain-dead sites.
Back to the Fairy liquid, then.
