In order to rinse dishes and glasses
satisfactorily, the dishwasher requires soft
water, i.e. containing little or no lime,
otherwise water stains will be left behind

Information about detergents
You can use any brand of liquid or powder
detergent, as well as tablets, that have
been specifically designed for use in
domestic dishwashers. (Do not use normal
washing-up liquid!)
Nowadays there are three types of
dishwasher detergent available:
1. those containing phosphates and
2. those containing phosphates but no
3. those containing neither phosphates
nor chlorine.
To ensure that the spray jet can reach all
parts, arrange the baking sheets as
(max. 4 baking sheets and 2 grilles).
When a phosphate-free detergent is used
in conjunction with hard water, there is a
greater possibility that white marks will be
left behind on crockery and glasses, etc.
These can be avoided by pouring an
increased amount of detergent into the
Chlorine-free detergents have a reduced
bleaching effect. This can mean that tea
stains are not completely removed or
plastic items become discoloured.

Programme data
The programme specifications can be
found in the summary of instructions.
Programme specifications refer to normal
conditions. Greater deviations may occur
due to:
different amounts of dishes
temperature of mains water supply
pressure of mains water supply
ambient temperature
fluctuations in mains voltage
machine-related factors (e.g.
temperature, water volume, ...).
Energy and water consumption is reduced
by up to 1/4 when dishes are washed in
the upper basket only.
Water consumption values are based on a
water hardness setting of 4.
Aqua sensor *
* on applicable models
The Aqua sensor is an optical measuring
device which measures the turbidity of the
rinsing water. A light barrier can detect
dissolved food remnants in the water, e.g.
egg, fat and oats.
The Aqua sensor is used according to
the programme. When the Aqua sensor
is active, ”clean” rinsing water may be
transferred into the next rinsing bath
and/or the temperature adjusted. If the
turbidity is greater, the water is drained
and is replaced with fresh water. In this
way the water consumption is reduced by
approx. 4 litres for utensils which are ”less”

limescale deposits.
If you find such deposits:
Fill the detergent dispenser with
detergent, start the appliance without
utensils in the programme which has
the highest wash temperature.
Clean the appliance with detergents/
appliance cleaners which are particularly
suitable for use with dishwashers.
Regularly wipe the door seal with
a damp cloth to remove deposits.
Never use a steam cleaner to clean your
dishwasher. The manufacturer is not liable
for any consequential damage.
Regularly wipe the front of the appliance
and panel with a damp cloth; water and
a little washing-up liquid will suffice.
Do not use sponges with a rough surface
or abrasive detergents, as these could
scratch the surfaces.
Never use other chlorinated household
detergents! Health hazard!
Special dishwasher salt
Check the LOW SALT indicator
Top up with salt, if required.
As soon as the rinse-aid refill indicator
lights up on the control panel 6 ,

The filters 25 prevent larger remnants of
food or other objects from getting inside
the pump. This residue can occasionally
clog up the filters.
The filter system consists of a filter
cylinder, a flat fine filter and, depending on
the model, a microfilter (*).
Inspect the filters for obstructions every
time the dishwasher has been used.
By unscrewing the filter cylinder, you
can remove the filter system. Remove
any food remnants and clean the filters
under running water.
Insert the filter system and screw down
with the filter cylinder.
