machine is perfectly level.
Ensure that door furniture is fitted properly and check that the door does not catch
any other surface to ensure the door is closed smoothly.
6 How to use
Water hardness & regeneration settings
The dishwasher requires lime free water. Hard water leaves watermarks on your
dishes. Your dishwasher has a special water softening system to remove the
hardness of the tap water. Setting this system correctly will increase the washing
effectiveness.
To find out the hardness level of water in your area, contact your local Water
Board or determine water hardness level by the help of test strip provided.
If you move to a different location, the level of water hardness will possibly
be different. It is essential to reset the water hardness in order to obtain
optimum washing efficiency.

Adding Dishwasher Salt
Only use special pelletized dishwasher
salt in your machine to soften the hard
water. Never use other types of salts
including table salt, animal feeding salt,
sea salt, culinary salt. These types of
salt do not dissolve in water easily and
will damage your appliance beyond
repair.
When you run the dishwasher, the
Water softener will be full of water.
Therefore, adding softening salt should
always be done immediately before
you start the dishwasher.
Caution: Only fill with salt just before
starting one of the complete washing
programmes to prevent any grains of
salt causing corrosion. Ensure 1lt of
water has been added. You can put
approximately 2 kg softening salt in the
Water softener.
To fill the container with softening
salt, remove the lower rack first and
unscrew the cap of the water softener
turning anti clockwise.
Using the funnel provided will make
filling easier.
After you fill the container, screw cap
tightly back into place turning clockwise
until you hear a click sound.
In case the light of the salt indicator is
still on for a long time after filling with
salt, mix the salty water inside the salt
box using a spoon.

Detergent use
Any brand of powder, gel and tablet
detergents that have been designed for
household dishwashers, may be used.
Keep detergents in a cool and dry
place and out of the reach of children.
Warning!
Two-in-one and three-in-one
detergents
You will obtain the best results from
your dishwasher if you use separate
detergent, rinse aid and watersoftening salt.
Detergent manufacturers also produce
combined detergents known as ‘two-inone’ and ‘three-in-one’.
Detergent must be added to the
container before each use.
Detergent overdose may cause
scratches on your dishes and there
may be traces of detergent left in your
machine.
Three types of detergent are available
• Phosphate and containing
chlorine.
• Phosphate containing no chlorine
• Neither containing phosphate nor
chlorine
New compact powders are generally
phosphate-free. As phosphates have
water softening properties, we suggest
you add salt to the salt container even
if the hardness of your water is as low
as a 6 clarke degrees.
In hard water areas if a phosphate free
detergent is used, white marks on the
dishes and glasses may be observed.
It may be prevented by increasing the
amount of detergent.
Detergents without chlorine have less
bleaching effect. Coloured stains may
not be completely removed. This may
be prevented by increasing the amount
of detergent, using a programme with
a higher wash temperature or using a
detergent with chlorine.
Three-in-one: These products contain
detergent, rinse aid and watersoftening salt.
Two-in-one: These products contain
detergent and either rinse aid or watersoftening salt.
In general, you will obtain satisfactory
results from combined detergents only
under specific usage conditions. These
detergents contain predetermined
amounts of rinse aid and/or softening
salt. This means that you cannot adjust
the amount of water-softening salt
and rinse aid required to suit the water
hardness level in your home.
You should bear the following points in
mind when using such detergents:

add more rinse aid to the rinse aid
dispenser.
• If you use combined detergents
with a rinse aid setting higher
than 1, hand contact may leave
rainbow-coloured water stains on
the washed items and inside the
machine.
• If you use combined detergents
without adding salt, lime scale may
form especially on glasses. To
avoid lime scale formation:
• Put your appliance’s water
softener setting at “1” and add salt.
When the salt is used up, add
more salt to the water softener.

If the dishwasher
is considerably
full and the
dishes are
relatively dirty,
fill the main
container (A) up to 25cm³ level. If the
dishwasher is not quite full and the
dishes are only slightly soiled, fill the
main container (A) only up to 15cm³
level.
If your dishes are kept unwashed for
a long time and the food particles are
stuck on the dishes also fill the small
container (B) up to 5cm³. Depending
on the degree of soiling and the
water hardness in your area it may be
necessary to add more detergent.
Rinse aid
Use only rinse aid intended for
household dishwashers.
Powder and gel detergents are poured
into the dispenser.
If you are using tablet detergent read
the manufacturer’s recommendations
on the packaging in order to determine
where the tablets should be placed
inside the dishwasher (detergent
dispenser, cutlery basket, etc.)
After you put in the detergent, shut the
container lid (D) and ensure you hear
the clicking sound.
During the wash programme the
detergent will dispense automatically
and the lid (D) will remain open when
the programme finishes.
Do not use detergent when using the
pre-wash programme.
The rinse aid is specially formulated
to be used in the dishwashers for the
prevention of watermarks and scale on
dishes and to increase the efficiency
of the washing and drying processes.
Therefore, make sure that
there is adequate amount of rinse
aid in the rinse aid dispenser of your
machine.
You can adjust the amount of rinse
aid used during the wash programme
by turning the rinse aid dispenser
