Adding dishwasher Salt
To decalcify the water softener, it must be filled up
with dishwasher salt. Use only special salt suitable
for domestic dishwashers.
If you do not use 3 in1 detergent, fill up with dishwasher salt:
– Before using the dishwasher for the first time.
– When the control indicator for dishwasher salt is illuminated on the control panel.
1. Open the door and remove the lower basket.
2. Unscrew the lid on the salt dispenser by turning it
anti-clockwise.
3. Only when using the dishwasher for the first
time:
Fill the salt dispenser with water.
4. Place the funnel (supplied) over the dispenser
opening.
Fill the dispenser with dishwasher salt; the capacity of the dispenser is approx. 1.0-1.5 kg, depending on the size of the grains. Do not overfill the
dispenser.
3 If water overflows when filling up with dish-
washer salt, this is completely harmless.
5. Clean away any salt remnants from the dispenser
opening.
6. Screw the lid back on in a clockwise direction.
7. Run a dishwashing cycle after filling the salt
dispenser with dishwasher salt. This will wash
away salt water and salt crystals that have been
spilt.
3 Depending on the size of the salt granules, it
can take several hours for the salt to dissolve
in the water and for the control indicator for
dishwasher salt to go out.
9
Filling Up with Rinse Aid
Rinse aid causes the rinse water to flow easily from
the crockery leaving gleaming dishes and glassware.
If you do not use 3in1 detergent, fill up with rinse aid:
– Before using the dishwasher for the first time.
– When the control indicator for rinse aid is illuminated on the control panel.
Use only special rinse aid for dishwashers.
1. Open the door.
The rinse aid compartment is located on the inside
of the dishwasher door.
2. Press the release button on the rinse aid compartment.
3. Open the cover.
4. Pour rinse aid in slowly right up to the broken
“max” line;
this corresponds to a volume of approx. 140 ml
when full.
5. Press the lid shut until it clicks into place.
6. Wipe up any spilt rinse aid with a cloth. Otherwise
there will be too much foam when rinsing.
10
Setting the Amount of Rinse Aid
Required
3 Only change the amount dispensed, if smears,
milky spots (reduce the amount) or dried on
water spots (increase the amount) can be seen
on glasses and dishes. (See section “If dishwashing results are not satisfactory”.) The
dosage can be set from 1-6. The dosage is
pre-set to “4” in the factory.
1. Open the dishwasher door.
2. Press the release button on the rinse aid compartment.
3. Open the cover.
4. Set the dosage level.
5. Press the lid shut until it clicks into place.
6. If rinse aid has leaked out, wipe it away with a
cloth.
11
Activating/deactivating the
acoustic signal
In addition to the optical display (e.g. indicating the
end of the cycle, errors) you can also choose to set
an acoustic signal.
1. Press the ON/OFF button.
3 If the LED indicator of only one programme
button is illuminated, this wash programme
has been activated. The wash programme
must be deselected:
Press function buttons 2 and 3 simultaneously
for approx. 2 seconds.
The LED indicators of all the programme buttons that can be selected will illuminate.
2. Press function buttons 2 and 3 simultaneously and
hold them down.
The LED indicators for function buttons 1 to 3 will
flash.

In daily use
Loading cutlery and dishes
1 Sponges,
cleaning cloths and any other objects that can absorb water must not be
washed in the dishwasher. Plastic and Tefloncoated dishes and pans tend to retain water
droplets. These dishes and pans therefore do
not dry as well as those made of china and
stainless steel.
For washing in the dishwasher, the following cutlery/dishes/pots and pans
are not suitable:
are of limited suitability:
• Cutlery with wooden, horn, china or mother of pearl handles
• Plastic items that are not heat resistant
• Older cutlery with cement
that is sensitive to temperature
• Dishes or cutlery with glued parts
• Pewter or copper items
• Lead crystal glass
• Steel items that rust
• Wooden boards/platters
• Items made from synthetic materials
• Only wash stoneware in the dishwasher if it is specifically
marked by the manufacturer as being dishwasher-safe.
• Glazed patterns may fade if washed very frequently in the
dishwasher.
• Silver and aluminium parts have a tendency to discolour during washing. Food remains, e.g. egg white, egg yolk and
mustard often cause discoloration and staining on silver.
Therefore always clean food residues from silver immediately,
if it is not to be washed straight after use.
• Glass can become dull after a large number of washes.
• Before loading the dishes, you should:
– Remove the worst of the food residues.
– Soak pans with burnt-on food residues.
• When loading the dishes and cutlery, please note:
– Dishes and cutlery must not impede the rotation
of the spray arms.
– Load bowls, cups, glasses, pans, etc. with the
opening downwards so that water cannot collect
in them
– Dishes and items of cutlery must not lie inside
one another or cover one another
– To avoid damage to glasses, they must not touch
one another
– Don’t put small items (e.g. lids) in the baskets for
the dishes, but in the cutlery basket, so that they
can’t fall through the holes.
13
Loading cutlery
1 Warning: Sharp knives and other items of cutlery with sharp edges must be laid in the cutlery rack or in the upper basket because of the
risk of injury.
To ensure that all items of cutlery in the cutlery basket can be reached by the water, you should:
1. Place the grid insert on the cutlery basket
Pots, Pans, Large Plates
Load larger and heavily soiled dishes and pans in the
lower basket.
(Max. diameter for plates 29 cm).
To make it easier to load larger dishes, the two rear
plate rests in the lower basket can be folded down
and the cutlery basket in the lower basket can be
moved to the side.
14
2. Place forks and spoons in the cutlery basket's grid
insert with their handles pointing downwards.
Cups, Glasses, Coffee Service
Load smaller, fragile crockery and long, sharp cutlery
in the upper basket.
• Arrange items of crockery on and under the folding
cup racks so that they are offset from each other
and water can reach all items.
• The cup racks can be folded up out of the way for
tall crockery items.
• Lay or hang wine and brandy glasses in the slots in
the cup racks.

Depending on the model, your appliance is provided
with one of the following types of upper basket:
Type 1
Raising / Lowering the upper basket
1. Pull out the upper basket completely.
2. Holding the upper basket by the handle, raise it as
far as it will go and then lower it vertically.
The upper basket will latch into the lower or the
upper position.
Type 2
Raising / Lowering the upper basket
1. Pull out the upper basket completely.
2. Holding the upper basket by the handle, raise it as
far as it will go and then lower it vertically.
The upper basket will latch into the lower or the
upper position.
16
Adding Detergent
Detergents remove the dirt from dishes and cutlery.
The detergent must be added before the cycle starts.
1 Only
use detergent intended for domestic
dishwashers.
The detergent compartment is located on the inside
of the door.
1. If the lid is closed:
Press the release button.
The lid will spring open.
2. Place the detergent in the detergent dispenser. The
markings indicate the dosing levels for powder detergents: “20/30” corresponds to approx.
20/30 ml of detergent.
Follow the manufacturer’s instructions with regard
to dosing and storage.
3. Close the lid and press until it locks into place.
3 In the case of very heavily soiled dishes, fill the
adjoining compartment (1) with additional detergent. This detergent comes into use during
the pre-wash cycle.
17
Concentrated detergents
Today’s detergents for dishwashers are almost exclusively low-alkaline concentrated detergents with
natural enzymes in tablet or powder form.
2
Using 50°C dishwashing cycles in conjunction
with these concentrated detergents reduces
pollution and is good for your dishes, as these
dishwashing cycles are specially matched to
the dirt-dissolving properties of the enzymes
in concentrated detergents. It is for this reason
that using 50 °C dishwashing cycles in conjunction with concentrated detergents can
achieve the same cleaning results that can
otherwise only be achieved using 65 °C cycles.
Detergent tablets
3 Detergent tablets from different manufactur-
ers dissolve at different rates. For this reason,
some detergent tablets do not attain their full
cleaning power during short cycles. Therefore
please use dishwashing cycles with pre-wash
when using detergent tablets.
Using 3in1 detergents
These products are detergents with a combined
cleaning, rinsing and salt function.
If you want to use 3in1 products
1. There is no need to fill up with special salt or rinse
aid.
2. Set the water softener to water hardness range “I”.
3. Set the rinse aid dosage to “1”.
Before the start of the dishwashing cycle put 3in1
detergent in the detergent dispenser.
If you do not want to use 3in1 products
any more
If you want to stop using 3in1 products, please do
the following:
• Fill up the dispensers for salt and rinse aid again.
• Switch the water softener to the highest setting
and perform up to three normal cycles without
loading any dishes.
• Then set the water softener to the water hardness
in your area.
If you want to use 4in1 products
When using "4 in 1" detergents that integrate also
anti- glass corrosion agent into "3 in 1" formula,
please follow the same indication as given for "3 in
1" detergents.

1) In all dishwasher programmes with a *, during the final rinse the temperture is raised to 68° for 10 minutes to hygienically clean
e.g. plastic chopping boards or jam jars.
2) The consumption values were obtained under standardised conditions. They depend on how full the baskets for the dishes are.
Variations are therefore possible in practice.
3) When using this cycle the degree of water clouding determines the amount of soiling on the dishes. The length of the cycle and
water and energy consumption can vary greatly – depending upon the load and how dirty the dishes are. Depending upon the
soiling, the temperature of the water will be automatically adjusted to between 50°C and 65°C.
4) When using this cycle, only load the dishwasher half full.
5) Test programme for Test Institutes
6) This cycle does not need any detergent.

Installation and connection instructions
1 Safety Information for the Installation
• Only transport the dishwasher in an upright position, otherwise salt water may run out.
• Before using the dishwasher for the first time,
check for any damage caused in transport. Do not
under any circumstances connect an appliance
that is damaged. In the case of damage, please
contact your supplier.
• Never use the dishwasher if the mains cable, water
inlet or drain hose are damaged; or if the control
panel, work top or plinth area are damaged such
that the inside of the appliance is freely accessible.
• Always plug the mains plug into a correctly installed shockproof socket.
• Permanent connection: a permanent connection
must only be installed by a trained electrician.
• Prior to using the appliance for the first time, ensure that the rated voltage and type of supply on
the rating plate match that of the supply where the
appliance is to be installed. The fuse rating is also
to be found on the rating plate.
• Multi-way plugs / connectors and extension cables
must not be used. This could constitute a fire hazard through overheating.
• The dishwasher’s cable must only be replaced by a
Service Force Engineer.
• A water inlet hose with safety valve must only be
replaced by a Service Force Engineer.
32
Installing the Dishwasher
• The dishwasher must be installed on a firm floor
and adjusted to ensure that it is stable and level in
all directions.
• To compensate for unevenness in the floor and to
match the height of the appliance to that of surrounding units, extend the threaded feet using a
screwdriver.
• The drain hose, inlet hose and mains cable must
be laid so that they are able to move freely within
the plinth area, and so that they are not kinked or
crushed when the dishwasher is in position.
• The dishwasher must also be screwed tightly to
the work surface or to the adjoining units. This is
essential to ensure the dishwasher does not tip up.
Dishwashers that can be fully integrated
(see installation template supplied)
3 The door of the appliance can be fitted with a
wooden door/cupboard door with the following dimensions:
Width:
591 mm - 594 mm
Thickness:
16 mm – 24 mm
Height:
max. 715 mm
Weight:
max. 10 kg
Using the installation template supplied, split cupboard doors can be easily installed and firmly fitted.
33
Connecting the dishwasher
Connecting to the water
supply
• The dishwasher can be connected to cold and hot
water supplies up to max. 60°C.
• The dishwasher must not be connected to open
hot water appliances or instantaneous water heaters.
Permitted water pressure
Lowest permitted water pressure:
1 bar (=10 N/cm2 =100 kPa)
Consult your plumber if the water pressure is less than
1 bar.
Highest permitted water pressure:
10 bar (=100 N/cm2 =1 MPa)
If the water pressure is greater than 10 bar, a pressure
reduction valve must be used (available from your
dealer).
Connecting the inlet hose
1 The water inlet hose must not be kinked,
crushed or entangled when it is being connected.
Connect the threaded hose fitting (ISO 228-1:2000)
on the water inlet hose to a tap with an external
thread (¾ inch). The inlet hose is fitted with either a
plastic or a metal nut:
– Only tighten the nut hand tight.
Then do a visual check for water tightness. (Make
sure that the tap is not dripping.)
3 So
that access to the tap in the kitchen is not
restricted by the use of the dishwasher, we
recommend installing an additional tap, or fitting a T-branch to the existing tap.
If you need a longer water inlet hose than that supplied, the following VDE-approved complete hose
sets are to be used. These are available from your local service centre.
34
Water drainage
Drain hose
1 The drain hose must not be kinked, crushed or
entangled.
Connecting the drain hose:
– Maximum permitted height: 1 metre.
– Minimum required height: 40 cm above the bottom edge of the appliance.
Extension hoses
• Extension hoses are available from your local Service Force Centre. To ensure that the function of the
appliance is not impeded, the internal diameter of
extension hoses must be 19 mm.
• Extension hoses must not be laid more than a
maximum distance of 4 metres horizontally; the
maximum permitted height for the connection for
the drain hose is then 85 cm.
Sink outlet connection
• The outlet of the drain hose (ø 19 mm) fits all commonly available sink outlet types. The outer diameter of the sink outlet connection must be at least
15 mm.
• The drain hose must be fixed to the sink outlet
connection using the hose clamp supplied.
Water drainage if the dishwasher is builtin at high level
If the dishwasher is installed at a high level, and the
drain hose connection is less than 30 cm from the
lower edge of the appliance, adapter kit
ET 111099520 must be fitted by your local Service
Force Centre.
Anti-flood system
For protection from water damage, the dishwasher is
equipped with a anti-flood system.
In the event of a fault, the safety valve immediately
interrupts the supply of water to the appliance and
the drain pump is activated.
In this way water can neither escape nor overflow.
The remaining water in the appliance is automatically
pumped out.
Should a fault occur when the appliance is switched
on, a buzzing tone can also be heard.
35
Electrical Connection
Any electrical work required to install this appliance should be carried out by a qualified electrician or competent person.
