Water softening system
To ensure good washing results, the
dishwasher requires soft water, i.e.
containing low amounts of lime, otherwise
white limescale will be deposited on the
utensils and inner container.
Tap water above 7° dH (from set value
•:‹‚) must be softened. The water is
softened with salt (regeneration salt) in the
water softening system of the dishwasher.
The setting and therefore the required
amount of salt depends on the degree of
hardness of your tap water (see table).
Setting
The amount of salt dispensed can be set
from ‹ to ˆ.
Sal is not required at the set value ‹.
– Find out about the hardness
value of your tap water. Your water
utility company will help you with this.
– Set value can be found in the water
hardness table.
– Close the door.
– Hold down programme button +
and switch on the main switch (.
– Release both buttons.
The LED for button + flashes
and the digital display 8 displays
the factory setting ….
To change the setting:
– Press programme button +.
Each time the button is pressed,
the set value increases by one level;
when the value of ˆ has been reached,
the display jumps back to ‹ (off).
– Switch off the main switch (
The chosen setting has now been
stored.

Special salt
Using special salt
Always refill with special salt immediately
before switching on the appliance. This
ensures that overrun special salt solution
is immediately washed out and does not
corrode the rinsing tank.
– Open the screw-type
cap of the compartment 1B.
– Fill the tank with water (only required
when switching on the appliance
for the first time).
– Then add salt (not table salt).
The water is displaced and runs out.
Salt refill indicator
As soon as the salt refill indicator
P on the fascia is lit, top up the salt.
Depending on the washing frequency
and the hardness setting, the regeneration
salt may not have to be topped up
for several months.
If the salt refill indicator P is impaired
(e. g. when using combined detergents
containing salt component), it can be
switched off.
– Proceed as described under “Setting
water softening system” and set
the value to ‹.
The water softening system and salt
refill indicator are now switched off.
ã=Warnings
– Never fill the salt dispenser with
detergent. You will destroy the water
softening system.
– To prevent corrosion, always refill with
salt immediately before switching on
the appliance.
* depending on model
The salt refill indicator P on the fascia
is lit. It goes out as soon as a sufficiently
high salt solution has formed.
If the set value ‹ is displayed, do not add
any salt because salt will not be used
during operation of the appliance, the salt
display is switched off. If the set values ‚
to ˆ are displayed, salt must be added.
Using detergents with salt
component
If combined detergents with a salt
component are used, salt can usually be
omitted up to a water hardness of 21° dH
(37° fH, 26° Clarke, 3.7 mmol/l). If the
water hardness is over 21° dH, special
salt must be used.

en
Rinse aid
As soon as the rinse-aid refill
indicator X is lit on the fascia, there
is still a rinse-aid reserve of 1–2 rinsing
processes. Refill with rinse aid.
The rinse aid is required for stain-free
utensils and clear glasses. Use only rinse
aid for domestic dishwashers.
Combined detergents with rinse-aid
component may be used up to a water
hardness of 21° dH (37° fH, 26° Clarke,
3.7 mmol/l) only. If the water hardness
is over 21° dH, rinse aid must be used.
– Open the cover on the rinse-aid
dispenser 1j. To do this, press

Utensils
Not suitable
– Cutlery and utensils made of wood.
– Delicate decorative glasses, craft and
antique utensils. These decors are not
dishwasher-proof.
– Plastic parts not resistant to heat.
– Copper and tin utensils.
– Utensils which are soiled with ash, wax,
lubricating grease or ink.
Aluminium and silver parts have a
tendency to discolour and fade during the
wash cycle. Even some types of glass
(e.g. crystal glass objects) may turn cloudy
after many wash cycles.
Glass and utensil damage
Causes:
– Glass type and glass production
process.
– Chemical composition of the detergent.
– Water temperature of the wash
programme.
Recommendation:
– Use only glasses and porcelain which
the manufacturer designates as
dishwasher-proof.
– Use a detergent which protects
utensils.
– Take glass and cutlery out of the
dishwasher as soon as possible after
the programme ends.
Loading the dishwasher
– Remove large food remnants. It is not
necessary to prerinse utensils under
running water.
– Place the utensils so that
– they are secure and cannot tip over.
– all utensils with their openings face
down.
– parts with curves or indentations
are at an angle, thereby allowing
water to drain.
– does not obstruct rotation of the
two spray arms 12 and 1:.
Very small utensils should not be washed
in the machine, as they may fall out of the
baskets.
Unloading the dishwasher
To prevent water from dripping off the
upper basket onto the utensils in the lower
basket, it is recommended to empty
the appliance from the bottom up.
Hot utensils are sensitive to shock!
Therefore, when the programme ends,
leave the utensils to cool down in the
dishwasher until they can be handled.

Detergent
You can use tablets as well as powder
or liquid detergents for dishwashers, but
never use washing up liquid. The dosage
can be individually adjusted with powder
or a liquid detergent according
to the degree of soiling. Tablets contain
an adequately large amount of active
ingredients for all cleaning tasks. Modern,
powerful detergents predominantly
use a low-alkaline formulation with
phosphate and enzymes. Phosphates
bond the lime in the water. Enzymes break
down starch and remove protein.
Phosphate-free detergents are less
frequent. These have a slightly weaker
lime bonding capacity and require
a higher dosage. To remove coloured
stains (e.g. tea, tomato sauce), oxygenbased bleaching agents are usually used.
Adding detergent
– If the detergent dispenser 9" is still
closed, press the lock 1b to open
the detergent dispenser.
Pour detergent into the dry detergent
dispenser 9". Dosage: see
manufacturer’s instructions
on the packaging.
The graduated detergent
dispenser 9" helps you add
the correct amount of powder or liquid
detergent.
Usually 20 ml–25 ml are adequate
for normal soiling. If using tablets, one
tablet is adequate.
– Close cover on the detergent
dispenser. To do this, (1) push the
dispenser cover shut and (2) press
gently on the end until the catch
engages audibly.
Note
To ensure a good washing result, always
follow the instructions on the detergent
packaging!
If you have further questions,
we recommend that you contact
the detergent manufacturers’ helpline.
ã=Warning
Read and observe the safety information
and instructions for use on the packaging
for cleaning and rinsing agents.
If using tablets, please refer
to the manufacturer’s packaging where
to put the tablets (e.g. cutlery basket,
detergent dispenser, etc.). Even
if using tablets, ensure that
the detergent dispenser cover
is closed.
Tip
If the utensils are only lightly soiled,
slightly less than the indicated amount
of detergent is usually adequate.
Suitable detergents and care products
can be purchased online via our website
or via customer service (see back page).

en
Combination detergent
Apart from conventional detergents (Solo),
a number of products are offered with
additional functions. These products
contain not only the detergent but also
rinse-aid and salt replacement substances
(3in1) and, depending on the combination
(4in1, 5in1, etc.), additional components
such as glass protection or stainless steel
cleaner. Combination detergents function
only up to a specific degree of hardness
(usually 21°dH). Over this limit salt
and rinse-aid must be added.
As soon as combined detergents
are used, the rinse programme is adjusted
automatically to ensure the best possible
rinsing and drying result.
Notes
– You will obtain optimum rinsing
and drying results by using solo
detergents and applying salt and rinse
aid separately.
– If programmes are short, tablets
may not have full cleaning effect due to
different dissolving properties
and there may even be undissolved
detergent residue. It is recommended
to use washing powder for these
programmes.
– The Intensive programme (on some
models) requires one tab only. When
using washing powder, you can apply
some of this cleaning agent to the
inside of the appliance’s door.
– Even if the rinse-aid and/or salt refill
indicator is lit, the rinse programme will
run correctly with combined
detergents.
– If using detergents in a water-soluble
protective cover: Take hold of the
cover with dry hands only and put
the detergent into an absolutely
dry detergent dispenser only, otherwise
the detergent may stick.
– If you switch from combined
detergents to solo detergents, ensure
that the water softening system
and amount of rinse aid have been
set to the correct value.

consumption are increased.
§ Half load *
If you have only a few items to wash (e.g.
glasses, cups, plates), you can switch to
“half load”. This will save water, energy
and time. It is recommended to put a little
less detergent in the detergent dispenser
than for a full load.
