Salt
Fig.2-3
The hardness of water varies from place to place. If hard water
is used in the dishwasher, deposits will form on the dishes
and utensils.
The appliance is equipped with a special softener that uses a
salt specifically designed to eliminate lime and minerals from
the water.
Loading the salt into the container
Always use salt intended for use with dishwashers.
Low salt indicator
The salt container is located beneath the lower rack and
should be filled as follows:
1.
2.
3.
Fig.2-4
When the low salt indicator (Fig.2-3) lights, you must fill
the salt. Remove the lower rack and then unscrew and
remove the cap from the salt container.
Note: If you are filling the container for the first time, fill
it with water.
Place the end of the funnel (supplied) into the hole
and introduce about 2 kg of salt. It is normal for a small
amount of water to come out of the salt container.
Carefully screw the cap back on.
ArtNo.800-0204 Adjusting the salt
Water Hardness
IMPORTANT: To prevent the formation of rust, load the salt
just before beginning a wash cycle.
Adjusting salt consumption
The dishwasher is designed to allow for adjusting the amount
of salt consumed based on the hardness of the water used.
This is intended to optimize and customize the level of salt
consumption so that it remains at a minimum.

Unscrew the cap from the salt container.
There is a ring on the container with an arrow on it
(Fig.2-4).
If necessary, rotate the ring in a counter-clockwise
direction from the ‘–‘ setting towards the ‘+’ sign, based
on the hardness of the water being used.
We recommend that you adjust the salt consumption in
accordance with Table 2-1.
The default setting of the water softening system is:
•
If using multi-functional tablets fill the salt dispenser
and set the adjuster to ‘–’;
•
If the hardness of the water is greater than 60°fH, set it
to ‘+’.

Rinse Aid
Fig.2-5
This product makes dishes sparkle and helps them to dry
without spotting. The dispenser is located on the inside panel
of the door.
When the low rinse aid indicator on the control panel
(Fig.2-5) and the indicator on the dispenser (Fig.2-6) lights
you must add rinse aid.
Note: When 3-in-1 or similar combination detergent tablets,
the rinse-aid is no longer useful.

To open the dispenser, turn the cap in a counterclockwise direction and remove (Fig.2-7).
Pour in the rinse aid, making sure not to overfill.
Regulate the amount of rinse aid used for each cycle by
turning the dose adjuster (Fig.2-8), located beneath the cap,
with a screwdriver.
There are 6 different settings; the normal dosage setting is 3.
Fig.2-7
IMPORTANT: Proper dosage of rinse aid improves drying.
If drops of water remain on the dishes or spotting occurs,
the dosage adjuster should be turned to a higher setting. If
the dishes have white streaks, turn the adjuster to a lower
setting.
Detergent
ArtNo.800-207 - Dispenser - Removing the rinse aid cap
Detergent specifically intended for use with dishwashers
must be used. The dispenser must be refilled before the start
of each wash cycle following the instructions provided in the
‘Programme overview’. The detergent dispenser is located on

What you should not put into the
dishwasher
Fig.2-9
Cutlery and tableware manufactured in whole or part from
wood. They become faded and unsightly in appearance.
Furthermore the adhesives that are used are not suitable for
the temperature that occurs inside the dishwasher.
Delicate decorative glassware and vases, special antiques or
irreplaceable china. The decorative patterns on such items
will not be dishwasher-proof.
Plastic objects that are not resistant to hot water, copper and
pewter utensils are also not suitable. Decorative patterns
printed or painted onto the surface of crockery, glasses, etc.,
aluminium and silver items tend to become discoloured or
faded if washed in the dishwasher.
A
Some types of glass can become opaque in appearance after
they have been washed many times in a dishwasher. Highly
absorbent materials, such as sponges and towels should
never be placed in the dishwasher.
IMPORTANT: Dishes or cutlery that have been soiled by
tobacco ash, wax, grease or paint, should not be put in the
dishwasher.
Damage to glassware and other dishes
Possible causes
•
•
•
Type of glass or manufacturing process.
Chemical composition of detergent.
Water temperature and duration of dishwasher
programme.
Suggested remedy
•
•
•
•
Use glassware or porcelain dishes that have been
marked ‘dishwasher-proof’ by the manufacturer.
Use a mild detergent that is described as ‘kind to dishes’.
If necessary, seek further information from detergent
manufacturers.
Select a programme with a low temperature and a short
duration.
To prevent damage, take glass and cutlery out of the
dishwasher as soon as possible after the programme
has ended.

Fig.2-10
Arranging Crockery, Glasses, etc. in the
Dishwasher
Fig.2-11
Before placing the dishes in the dishwasher, remove larger
food particles to prevent the filter from becoming clogged,
resulting in reduced performance.
If the pots and pans have baked-on food that is extremely
hard to remove, we recommend that they are soaked before
washed. This will eliminate the need for extra wash cycles.
Pull out the rack to load the dishwasher.
ArtNo.800-0319 - RDW459 - Lower rack
Using the lower rack
The lower rack has adjustable supports that fold down to
allow larger items to be placed. We recommend that you
place the most difficult to clean items on the lower rack: pots,
pans, lids, serving dishes and bowls (Fig.2-11).
Fig.2-12
It is preferable to place serving dishes and lids on the sides of
the racks to avoid blocking the rotation of the top spray arm.
Pots, serving bowls, etc. must always be placed face down.
Deep pots should be slanted to allow the water to flow out.
WARNING!
nn
Knives and other utensils with sharp points must
be loaded in the basket with their points down or
placed in a horizontal position.
ArtNo.800-311- RDW6012 - Upper rack
Using the upper rack
The upper rack (Fig.2-12) is designed to hold more delicate
and lighter dishware, such as glasses, cups and saucers,
plates, small bowls and shallow pans (as long as they are not
too dirty).
Fig.2-13
Position the dishes and cookware so that the spray of water
does not move them.
The upper rack can be adjusted for height (Fig.2-13). Undo
the retaining clips on the telescopic runners (A). Slide the rack
out (B), refit on the lower wheels and push back along the
runners (C). Close the retaining clips (D).

General Advice
1.
2.
3.
Open the door.
Set the ON-OFF button to OFF.
Remove dishes, etc. when they have cooled down.
1.
Note: For the best drying performance, we recommend that
you do not remove the contents for at least 30 minutes. This
allows residual heat in the dishwasher to remove any small
droplets of water that may occur.
2.
3.
Interrupting the programme
A cycle that is underway can be modified if it has only been
running for a short time. Otherwise, the detergent may have
already been used, and the appliance may have already
drained the wash water. If this is the case the detergent
dispenser must be refilled; see ‘Loading the detergent’.
Before using these products you should first check
that the water hardness in your supply is compatible
with their use, as per the detergent manufacturers
instructions (on the product packaging).
These products should be strictly used according to the
detergent manufacturers instructions.
If you encounter problems when using 3-in-1 products
for the first time then please contact the detergent
manufacturers care line (the telephone number is given
on the product packaging).
Special Advice
When using combination products, there is no need to add
additional salt or rinse aid as these are not required. Indicator
lights for salt and rinse aid can be ignored. It may be helpful
to select the lowest possible setting for water hardness.
To cancel a programme that is underway, carefully open
the door and press the programme button and hold it in for
about 3 seconds.
CAUTION!
nn
There is a risk of water coming out from inside the
appliance. DO NOT open the door fully until the
spray arm has stopped rotating.

every thirty seconds.
If the appliance has already heated up or the hot water was
switched ON and then the appliance door opened, leave the
door ajar for several minutes and then close.
After 30 seconds the programme will start from the point it
was interrupted.
Cancelling or modifying a cycle
A cycle that is underway can be modified if it has only been
running for a short time. Otherwise, the detergent may have
already been used and the appliance may have already
drained the wash water. If this is the case, the detergent
dispenser must be refilled (see ‘Loading the detergent’).

3. Looking after your Dishwasher
Care
Fig.3-1
After Every Wash
After every wash, set the ON-OFF button to OFF and leave the
door slightly ajar so that moisture and odours are not trapped
inside.
Before cleaning or performing maintenance isolate
nn
from mains.
Overall Condition of the Appliance
Low salt indicator
Check that no grease or scale has accumulated on the inside
of the dishwasher. If you discover any deposits: Clean the
interior of the dishwasher thoroughly with a detergent
solution.
Fig.3-2
Dishwasher salt
Check the LOW SALT indicator (Fig.3-1). If required, top up
with salt .
Rinse aid
Check the low rinse indicator (Fig.3-2) on the control panel. If
required, top up with rinse aid.
Low rinse aid indicator
Filters
Fig.3-3
The filters prevent larger particles of food in the water from
reaching the pump. These particles may occasionally block
the filters.
When the appliance has finished washing, check the filters for
particles of food and, if required, clean.
After undoing the coarse micro-filter (Fig.3-3), the filter unit
can be removed (Fig.3-4). Remove any particles of food and
rinse the filters under running water.
Insert the filter unit and tighten the coarse micro-filter.
ArtNo.800-0501 - Cleaning the filter 1
Fig.3-4
ArtNo.800-0502 - Cleaning the filter 2
12
Spray arms
Fig.3-5
Limescale and remnants of food in the washing water can
block the nozzles in the spray arms and the arm mountings.
Inspect the nozzles in the spray arms for blocked holes due to
remnants of food.
If necessary, pull the lower arm (Fig.3-5) upwards and lift it
off. Unscrew the upper spray arm (Fig.3-6).
ArtNo.800-0505 - Cleaning the lower spray arm
Clean both spray arms under running water.
Refit the spray arms. Make sure that the lower arm
nn
has locked into place and the upper one is screwed
tight.
Solvents or Abrasive Cleaning Products
To clean the exterior and rubber parts of the dishwasher, do
not use solvents or abrasive cleaning products. Rather, use
only a cloth and warm soapy water.
Fig.3-6
To remove spots or stains from the surface of the interior, use
a cloth dampened with water and a little white vinegar or a
cleaning product made specifically for dishwashers.
Moving the Appliance
If the appliance must be moved, try to keep it in a vertical
position. If absolutely necessary, it can be positioned on its
back.
Seals
One of the factors that cause odours to form in the
dishwasher is food that remains trapped in the seals.
Periodic cleaning with a damp sponge will prevent this from
occurring.
When You Go on Holiday
When you go on holiday, it is recommended that you run a
wash cycle with the dishwasher empty and isolate from the
mains. Turn off the water supply and leave the door of the
appliance slightly ajar. This will help the seals last longer and
prevent odours from forming within the appliance.

4. Troubleshooting
DocNo.800-0401 - Troubleshooting - RDW6012 dishwasher
Resolving minor problems yourself
Fig.4-1
Experience has shown that you can resolve most problems
that occur during normal daily usage yourself, without having
to call out a service engineer. Not only does this save costs
but it also means that the appliance is available to use. The
following list of common occurrences and their remedies
should help you identify the causes of most problems.
Problems when the unit is switched on
Appliance does not start up
•
Fault with fuse in mains electricity supply.
•
Plug not inserted in wall socket.
•
Appliance door not closed properly.
•
Programme button has not been pressed. Water tap not
turned on.
•
Blocked strainer in water intake hose.
CAUTION!
Remember that repairs should only be carried out by
a suitably qualified specialist. Improper repairs can
