Maidaid Codes

Finally suffixes, WS indicates that a water softener is fitted and on C & D ranges a D indicates a drain pump is fitted. On Evolution machines drain pumps are fitted as standard.

So a Maidaid D500WSD Glasswasher is an electronic machine that has a 500mm basket with a water softener and a drain pump
