BEFORE USING FOR THE FIRST TIME
Step 3. Salt Filling
This model has a water softener to soften hard water.
Please read these notes carefully for correct operation.
In order to provide satisfactory rinsing results, the dishwasher requires soft water, i.e., containing
little or no lime, otherwise water stains will be left behind on the dishes and interior containers.
If the tap water exceeds a certain level of hardness, it must be softened, I.e.,decalcified.
This is achieved by adding a special salt to the water softener inside the dishwasher.
The required amount of salt is set up according to how hard your tap water is.
■F
illing with Salt
Fill the regenerating salt container before starting the washing programme.
Once you have filled with salt you must run the Quick course immediately to remove salt and salt
water around the tub in order to prevent corrosion.
• Remove lower rack and unscrew the cap of salt container.
• Before using your dishwasher for the first time, it is necessary
to Pour 1.5kg of salt and 1 litre of water in to the container.
Otherwise salt refill lamp always turn on during operation.
Use a funnel for ease and clean filling, ensuring that coarse salt
or regenerating salt intended for dishwashers is used.
• After filling, wipe off any spilled salt to seal the cap properly.
• Screw the cap tightly to prevent any suds from penetrating into
the container.
Step 4. Adding Rinse Aid
■F
or filling
To fill the Rinse Aid chamber, push the rinse aid button. Fill the container to the maximum level
with a good quality Rinse Aid, then close the cap.
The Rinse Aid is automatically dispensed during the final rinse cycle.
The dosage is factory set to suit most installations. If, after washing, you notice cloudy spots,
streaks or water marks on your glassware, it may be necessary to increase the setting. To do this,
remove the cap and rotate the indicator arrow to a higher setting then replace the cap . If the glass
is smeared or foam is present on the bottom of the glass or the bottom of the machine, select a
lower setting.

NOTE
Detergent Information
When using tablets, place them onto the
inside surface of the door. The use of
some combined detergent/rinse aid
tablets can cause the dispenser to
remain shut during the wash.
•Use only the detergent intended for
household dishwashers. (Ordinary
hand-washing detergent should not be
used, because the foam will interfere
with proper operation.)
•When using some dishwasher tablets,
the dispenser may not open due to their
excessive size.
•If this happens, place the tablet onto
the floor of the tub.
23
HOW TO USE AND OPERATE
6. Refilling
WARNING
•The detergent used is a special
Dishwasher detergent and like all
household chemicals it should be treated
as harmful and kept out of reach of
children.
■ For refilling Rinse Aid
Depending on the dosage setting and the
number of washes, the chamber may need to be
topped up, approximately once a month. The
rinse aid level can be checked by two methods.
•After completion of the wash
programme, the detergent
compartment should be checked and
any remaining detergent removed.
• By the indicator window on the dispenser
when the dishwasher door is fully open.
● Black indicates sufficient Rinse Aid
○ Clear indicates Rinse Aid required
CAUTION
Using combined detergent products
(ex.3 in 1)
•Some products integrated with rinse aid
work best with specific programmes only.
You will obtain optimum rinsing and drying
results by using conventional rinse aids.
•The use of Dishwasher Tablet products
may also cause the soap dispenser to
remain shut, therefore failing to dispense
the soap tablet.
These combined detergent products can
alternatively be placed in the filter prior to
starting the wash cycle.
Please contact the detergent manufacturer
if the drying performance is very poor or
you find white foam, when you use the
combined detergent products.
The rinse aid dial should be set to
minimum when using wash tablets with
built in rinse aid.
Excessive rinse aid can cause foaming at
the end of the wash.
We do not warrant the complaints that are
directly related to the use of these
products. Do not use liquid rinse aid if
using tablets containing a rinse aid agent.
Rinse-Aid Indicator

• By the light on the control panel, being lit,
when the dishwasher is working on.
■ D1453**
■ D1463**
KD-C705N*
When the lamp is lit, it means the rinse
aid is almost empty. Refill the Rinse Aid
chamber as soon as possible.
NOTE
Rinse Aid Information
•Rinse Aid is necessary to remove spots
and streaks of the water from dishes as
well as improved drying. Using the correct
amount will improve wash performance.
However, using too much can produce
excess foam leading to possible water
leaks.
24
HOW TO USE AND OPERATE
7. Drying
■ To assist drying, we recommend that the
door be partially opened after the cycle.
The display will indicate Cd(cool dry) for a
further 60 minutes after the end of the cycle
time. It can be interrupted or terminated by
simply opening the door.
■ The use of rinse aid is recommended for
optimum drying results.
■ Select the Extra Hot option to get better
drying results.
■ For refilling Salt
When the salt container is empty, the salt refill
lamp will automatically turn on during
operation. The salt should be refilled after the
cycle has finished. We recommend the salt refill
should always be carried out, as mentioned on
previous page, prior to starting the next
operation. This will immediately thin and drain
away any excess salt solution.
■ D1453**
■ D1463**
KD-C705N*
When the lamp is lit, this means that the
salt aid is almost empty. Refill the Salt Aid
chamber as soon as possible.
NOTE
• After filling with salt, it may take a little
while before the indicator light turns off.
• When the control is set to , it is not
necessary to fill up with salt as no salt is
consumed while the dishwasher is

Dual Spray
This programme offers efficient energy and
water consumption for a good washing
performance on a normally soiled tableware.
This cycle washes the upper and lower racks at
different spray intensities. The lower rack is
washed with a strong spray for hard to clean
items, while the upper rack is washed with a
medium spray for more delicate items. This
provides optimum cleaning performance for
mixed loads, including fine china and stemware.
Auto
During the Auto programme, the degree of
soiling in the dishes is determined by the amount
of clouding to the water.
