softening system is adjusted properly.
Adjust the new water hardness level
according to the Water hardness level
instruction in this booklet.
Use the test strip supplied with the product
according to the steps given below to
determine hardness level of your supply
water.
Water softening system
The product is equipped with a water
softening system which reduces the
hardness of incoming water. This system
softens the supply water to a level that will
allow washing the dishes with the required
quality.
The mains water hardness must
be softened if it is over 7°dH.
Otherwise, hardness ions will
accumulate on the dishes that
are washed and may affect the
washing, rinsing and drying
performances of the machine.

Preparation
If the hardness level of the supply water
is above 90 °dF or if you are using well
water, then it is recommended to use water
purification devices and special filters.
If the hardness level of the supply water is
below 13°dF, there is no need to use salt
in your dishwasher. If this is the case, “No
Salt Warning Indicator” (if any) illuminates
continuously on the panel of your machine.
If the water hardness level adjustment is
set to level 1, the “No salt warning indicator”
will illuminate continuously although it
is not necessary to use salt. If you use
salt under this condition, salt will not be
consumed and the Salt indicator will not
illuminate.
If you move your house, it is
necessary to readjust water
hardness level of your machine
by considering the information
given above according to the
hardness level of the supply
water in your new location.
Your machine will display the
most recently adjusted water
hardness level.

It is recommended to use
granule- or powder-formed
softening salts in the water
softening system. Do not use
salts that do not completely
dissolve in water such as table
salt or rock salt. Otherwise the
performance of the system may
deteriorate in time.
Salt reservoir will be filled
with water when you start
the product. For this reason,
add salt before operating the
machine.
1. Firstly, take the lower basket out to add
softening salt.
2. Turn the salt reservoir lid counterclockwise to open it (A, B).
Adding salt
Water softening system needs to be
regenerated in order for the product
operates with the same performance
continuously. Dishwasher salt is used for
this purpose.
Use only special softening salts
produced particularly for the
dishwashers in your machine.
C
14 /44 EN
Dishwasher / User’s Manual
Preparation
3. Add 1 litre of water to salt reservoir of
your machine only in initial use (C).
4. Fill the salt reservoir with salt by
using the salt funnel (D). To speed up
dissolution rate of salt in water, stir it
with a spoon.
C
You can put about 2 kg of
softening salt into the salt
reservoir.
C
You need to add salt right before
starting the machine. Thus, the
overflowing salty water will be
flushed immediately, preventing
the risk of corrosion in machine.
In cases where you would not
start washing immediately,
run your machine empty in the
shortest program.
5. Replace the lid and tighten it when the
reservoir is full.
Dishwasher / User’s Manual
C
Since different salt brands in the
market have different particle
sizes and since the water
hardness may vary, dissolution
of the salt in water may take
a couple of hours. Therefore,
Salt Indicator remains on for a
while after adding salt into the
machine.
Detergent
You can use powder, liquid/gel or tablet
detergents in the machine.
Only use in the machine
the detergents produced
particularly for use with
dishwashers. We recommend
you not to use detergents that

solubility of the tablet detergent
changes depending on the
temperature and time.
Tablet detergents
In addition to the conventional tablet
detergents, there are also commercially
available detergent tablets that show water
softening salt and/or rinse aid effect. Some
types of these detergents contain specialpurpose components such as glass and
stainless steel protectors. These tablets
show their effects up to a certain water
hardness level (21°dH). Water softening

salt and rinse aid must also be used
together with the detergent if the water
hardness level is above the mentioned level.
The best washing performance
in dishwashers is obtained by
using detergent, rinse aid and
water softening salt individually.
C
Rinse aid
C
The rinse aid used in
dishwashers is a special
combination that aims to
increase drying efficiency and
prevent water or lime stains
on the washed items. For this
reason, care must be paid

a tablet detergent.
When you switch to powder
detergent from tablet detergent:
1. Make sure that salt and rinse aid
reservoirs are full.
2. Set the water hardness to the highest
level and perform an empty run.
3. After the empty washing cycle, review
the user manual and readjust the water
hardness level so as to suit the water
supply.
4. Make the appropriate rinse aid settings.

Placing the dishes into the
dishwasher
You can use your dishwasher in the
optimum way with respect to energy
consumption and washing and drying
performance only if you place the dishes in
an orderly way.
•• Wipe away any coarse food remnants
(bones, seeds, etc.) on the dishes
before placing them in the dishwasher.
•• Place thin, narrow pieces in the middle
sections of baskets if possible.
•• Place the heavily soiled and bigger
items in the lower basket and smaller,
delicate and light items in the upper
basket.
•• Place the hollowed dishes such as
bowls, glasses and pans upside down
in the dishwasher. Thus, accumulation
of water in deep hollows is prevented.
To prevent possible injuries,
always place the sharp and
pointed dishes such as service
fork, bread knife, etc. upside
down so as their pointed ends
will face down or they will lie
horizontally in the dish basket.
