Before doing your first wash
Read through the directions for use
Check the water hardness level
Read through the directions for use before
starting to use your machine, especially the
Safety, Child Safety and Basic Course
sections.
Phone your local Water Board to check the
water hardness in your area. This is important
when dispensing dishwasher detergent and
rinse aid.
Take care with certain materials
If you have a machine with a water
softener
Read the section ‘Fragile Dishes’ before
washing china with unglazed decoration or
other household goods made of plastic,
wood or crystal requiring careful treatment.
Once you know the water hardness, you
can set the water softener, see Settings.
Before you start dishwashing, you must
also fill with salt, see Salt.
Check the door
Check that the door of the dishwasher fits
properly: open the door a little and let it go.
Does it stay exactly where you released it?
If not, you should check the installation
instructions or consult the installer.

Basic Course
Below are step by step instructions to help you
achieve the best possible dishwashing results.
Load the baskets correctly!
Your dishwasher is equipped with Super
Cleaning System™. It is therefore not necessary to rinse the dishes before washing.
Simply remove large food particles and debris. Convenient and environmentally friendly!
Place glasses, cups, bowls, side plates and
dishes in the upper basket, wine glasses
should be placed on the shelf with the wavy
edge, and knives in the knife stand if present.
The cutlery basket has a folding flap in the
middle for small items or narrow shafts,
such as electric whisks.
Place long cutlery and carving knives in the
special knife box (if available) or in the
upper basket.
Check that the spray arms are able to move
freely.
See the section entitled Fragile Items if you
want to wash objects that may be fragile.
NB!
Ensure that all soiled surfaces face inwards
or downwards!
Dispensing dishwasher
detergent
Detergent should be dispensed in accordance
with the water’s hardness level.
Place dinner plates, side plates, serving
dishes, saucepans and cutlery (in the cutlery basket) in the lower basket. The removable plate insert, which comes with certain
models, can be easily removed to provide
room for large plates, saucepans and pots,
or placed in three alternative positions.
Stand the cutlery with handles downward
and as spread out as possible. Ensure that
spoons are not resting inside each other.
Follow the dosage instructions on the detergent package. If your machine is fitted with a
water softener, dispense as for soft water.
Pour the dishwasher detergent into the dishwasher detergent compartment. There is one
compartment for pre-wash and one for main
wash, see Dispenser. Phone the dishwasher
detergent manufacturer if you have any questions regarding the detergent.
CAUTION!
Do not put cutlery made of different materials, e.g. silver and stainless steel, in the
same compartment (risk of stains).
Protect your children!
- Dishwasher detergent is corrosive!
11
NB!
Only use dishwasher detergent
Detergent for washing by hand cannot be
used as the build-up of foam impedes the
machine’s performance.
Lower basket wash
When you only want to wash plates and
cutlery in the lower basket you can use the
lower basket wash.
Press the main switch
and select programme
Delicate wash
If the dishes are not heavily soiled, you can
select Light wash. This program is intended
for glass and china which has just been
used and therefore does not need such a
powerful program.
Select a programme by pressing the programme selector one or more times until the
required programme is displayed.
Auto wash
The dishwasher detects how soiled the
dishes are and adjusts water consumption
and temperature accordingly.
Heavy wash
The Heavy Wash programme should be
used for heavily soiled dishes, e.g. saucepans, pots and gratin dishes. If there is still
space in the machine after loading such
items, you can add plates etc.
Normal wash
Used for washing normally soiled dishes
such as plates, serving dishes, cups and
glasses, etc.
For washing normally soiled mixed loads
use the Normal wash program with 65°C
and normal drying.
To save more water and energy use 55°C
and economy drying.
Mixed wash
This dishwashing programme is used for
lightly soiled dishes in the upper basket and
heavily soiled dishes in the lower basket.
Upper basket wash
If you only have cups and glasses in the
upper basket which require washing, you
can use this programme.
12
Fragile dishes
can be washed using the Light wash
program. Deselect the heat dry if you want
to be particularly careful. See also the chapter on Fragile dishes.
Quick wash
Select Quick Wash if the dishes are very
lightly soiled. This program is used for very
lightly soiled glass and china, e.g. coffee
cups.
Rinse & Hold
For rinsing the dishes while waiting for the
machine to be filled.
Rinse & Dry
The Rinse & Dry program comprises one
rinse with heat and drying. It is a suitable
program if you are planning to make jam
and want to rinse and warm previously
washed glass jars.
If you wish to use additional options,
continue to point 4. Otherwise you can
now start the machine, see point 5.
Options
Select options
To select an option, press one of the option
buttons
Drying
You can select different drying time lengths
depending on how dry you want your dishes to
be when the machine has finished. The temperature can be selected in all programmes
except Auto wash, Rinse & Hold and
Rinse & Dry programmes.
By pressing the drying button you can select
‘Short drying’, ‘Economy drying’ (the drying
symbol is shown in the form of a wavy line) or
‘Normal drying’
(the drying symbol is shown
in the form of three wavy lines) .
Temperature
The temperature can be changed in all programmes except the Auto wash, Rinse & Hold
and Rinse & Dry programmes.
By pressing one or more times on the
Temperature button, you can advance to the
desired temperature, from cold (incoming water
temp.), 30°, 40°, 50°, 55°, 60°, 65°, 70°, 75°C. In
the Delicate wash and Quick wash programmes
you can only select temperatures up to 60°C.
13
Eco-dishwashing
Only perform washes with a full
machine
Waiting to run the wash until the machine is
full saves energy.
Wash at a lower temperature
If the load is only lightly soiled, you can
lower the temperature.
Select program with Economy
drying
To save more energy - use Economy drying.
You will get a better drying result if you
leave the door slightly open after the end of
the program.
Do not rinse before dishwashing
Thanks to the dishwasher’s Super Cleaning
System™ you do not need to rinse the
dishes under running water before loading
them into the machine.
Choose environmentally-friendly
dishwasher detergent
Read environmental declarations on the
package!
Connect to cold water supply
If the machine is connected to the cold
water, the operating time will be longer, as it
takes longer to heat up the water. However,
the extended washing time means that it is
possible to operate a program with a lower
washing temperature and still achieve the
same results.

washing program has been completed, the
interrupted program will continue when
power comes back on.
NB!
If the power is switched off, or if the door is
open for more than 2 minutes during drying,
the program is interrupted.
After dishwashing
Once the machine has finished, it is only
drawing standing current. Should you wish
to disconnect the current completely, just
switch off at the main switch. Turn off the
water tap if the machine is not to be used for
an extended period, e.g. during holidays.
Advice!
For even quicker drying, allow the door to
stand slightly ajar.
16
Fragile dishes
A number of household goods are not suitable for machine washing. There can be
many reasons for this. Certain materials
cannot withstand intense heat, others can
be damaged by the dishwasher detergent.
Fragile decoration
China with decoration on top of the glaze
(the article has a rough feel) should not be
machine washed.
Wood
Wooden articles should only be machine
washed if they are labelled as dishwasher
proof.
Aluminium
Aluminium can be dulled by machine washing. However, good quality aluminium
saucepans can be machine washed, although a reduction in lustre should be expected.
Crystal/ glass
Place the articles so that they do not knock
together during the wash. Use the lowest
possible wash temperature and the shortest
possible program. Do not heat dry! Antique
and very fragile items should not be machine washed.
Glass which is machine washed at high
temperatures can in time develop a grey
film which cannot be removed. Wash fine
glass at the lowest temperature and with a
low dosage of dishwasher detergent.
Plastic
Certain types of plastic cannot withstand
the high temperature generated in machine
dishwashing.
To protect plastic articles
Select a program with Economy
temperature and Economy drying.
Silver
Silver and stainless items should not come
into contact with each other as the silver
can discolour.
Cutlery with glued handles
Certain types of adhesive cannot withstand
machine washing. In such cases the handles
can come loose.

The display
When you have selected programme and
option, the display shows the length of time
the programme took the last time it was
used. When you have started the machine,
the display window shows how much of the
programme time remains.
This time can vary a little from one occasion
to another depending on the temperature of
the inlet water, the amount of dishes, the
ambient temperature, etc.
During the time the programme is operating,
the time is counted down and the remaining
programme time is shown in the window.
The remaining time is shown e.g. as 1:02,
which means that 1 hour and 2 minutes of
the programme remain.
NB!
During the first run of each programme, the
remaining time display can be slightly misleading as the machine is estimating the
time. If the programme takes longer than
expected, it displays 1 minute until the
programme is finished.
20
Cleaning
Cleaning
The dishwasher’s inner container is made of
stainless steel and is kept clean through
normal use. However, if you have calciferous
(hard) water, lime deposits can form in the
dishwasher. In this case, run a normal wash
program with two tablespoons of citric acid in
the dishwasher detergent compartment.
Coarse filter
The coarse filter collects large food particles which cannot get past the outflow
pump. Lift out and empty the coarse filter as
necessary. Don’t forget to replace it!
Fine filter
After 300 dishwashing cycles, ‘Clean filter’
appears in the display (applies only to certain
models and markets).
1. The fine filter is removed by first turning the
tubular strainer of the filter anti-clockwise and
then lifting it straight up.
2. Clean with a dishwashing brush. Ensure
that the edges are properly sealed when
replacing the fine filter.
The message is cancelled by pressing on
one of the buttons or the main switch.

Drainage pump
The pump can be accessed from the inside
of the machine.
1. Always remove the plug from the wall
socket before you clean the pump.
2. Remove the coarse screen first by
pressing together the two lugs and pulling
the screen upwards.
3. Now loosen the tubular part of the screen
by turning it anticlockwise and removing the
fine screen.
4. Finally remove the small adapter to the
left of the bottom drain.
5. It’s possible, by inserting your finger in
the hole, to turn the pump impeller and
remove any blockage.
6. Refit the adapter and screens.
7. Insert the plug in the wall socket.
Adapting
piece
21
If you still cannot start the machine and a
humming noise can be heard, then the
overfilling protection has been activated.
• Shutoff the water
• Remove the plug from the wall socket
• Call Service
CAUTION!
Do not forget to replace the adapting piece.
Spray arms
The holes and bearings can occasionally
become clogged.
1. Pull the lower spray arm straight up to
release it.
2. Scrape away the debris with a needle or
similar. The spray arms also have holes on
the underside.
To release the upper spray arm, the upper
basket must be removed.
3. Pull out the basket and turn the basket
stop outwards on both rails (see picture).
The basket can now be removed.
4. Remove the upper spray arm in the same
way as the lower arm and clean it.
Door
When cleaning the edge around the door,
use only a slightly damp cloth, possibly with
a little detergent. Do not use a spray bottle
or similar around the door catch. This is to
ensure that water does not penetrate into
the door catch and come into contact with
the electrical components.
CAUTION!
Do not use a spray bottle or similar around
the door catch.
Tip!
In order to prevent bad odours in the
dishwasher, clean the strips and corners
with a dish brush and low-lather detergent.
22
Rinse aid
Pour in rinse aid
Select dosage
Drying proceeds more quickly if you use
rinse aid.
The dispenser is usually set at 1= soft water.
However, depending on the water hardness, it may be necessary to change the
dosage.

When the rinse aid has run out and more is
needed, the rinse aid symbol on the panel
lights up*.
To fill with rinse aid:
1. Turn and lift up the cover of the rinse aid
compartment to the right of the dispenser.
This is where you top up and set the
amount of rinse aid to be dispensed in each
wash.
2. Carefully pour in rinse aid up to the knob
for dosage setting.
Alter dosage if required. Do not forget to
close the cover.
*NB!
After filling there may be a short delay
before the signal light goes out.
Open the rinse aid cover . Here you will find
the dispenser’s adjustment dial. Settings 1-6:
the harder the water, the higher the dosage.
When the water hardness exceeds 10-12 odH
you should use rinse aid with citric acid (acid
rinse aid) if the machine does not have a water
softening filter. If the machine has a water
softening filter, dispense as for soft water.
Too much rinse aid can lead to the build-up
of foam. If your water is particularly soft, you
can dilute the rinse aid (1 part rinse aid, 1
part water).
Too much rinse aid can cause streaks on
the dishes, while too little can result in water
stains.
Machines with refill indicator
There is a refill indicator in the middle of the
dispenser (see picture). If the refill indicator
is totally black, there is sufficient rinse aid.
However, if the indicator has a more
transparent appearance, you need to top up
with rinse aid (see above).

Salt
(applies to dishwashers with water softeners)
Pour in salt
Before using a dishwasher with a water
softening filter, you must fill the salt compartment with salt. Use coarse salt or special salt for dishwashers.
Cover for the salt compartment
It is best to fill with salt when you are about
to do a wash, as the dishwasher needs to
be rinsed out immediately after filling.
Proceed as follows the first time:
1. First unscrew the cover as illustrated.
2. Place the funnel, which is supplied with
the dishwasher, into the compartment’s filler
hole. First pour in approximately 1 litre of
water.
3. Then fill the compartment with max 1.5 kg
salt.
4. Wipe away excess salt so that the cover
can be properly screwed into place.
5. Run a Normal wash program so that any
salt in the machine is rinsed away.
When the salt runs out, the salt symbol on
the display* lights up (this function is not
available on all machines). Unscrew the
cover and fill the compartment with salt.
Water is only needed on the first occasion!
Wipe clean and screw back in place. Run a
Normal wash program so that any salt is
rinsed away.
The indicator is not working
If the indicator is not working, this may be
because the float, which is positioned under
the cover, has become stuck in salt residue.
The float can be reached through the green
arm located under the cover of the salt
compartment. Move the float arm up and
down to loosen it. Once the float has been
loosened, press it down again.
Models without a salt symbol in the display
show green in the salt compartment cover
when there is sufficient salt.
24
*NB!
After filling, there may be a short delay
before the signal light goes out.
CAUTION!
Never pour dishwasher detergent into the
salt compartment. It will destroy the water
softener!

B. Freestanding
A freestanding dishwasher must be fitted with
anti-tilt. This comprises two fastening irons
which are screwed into place as illustrated.
The dishwasher is then pushed in so that
the fastening irons grip onto the rear feet.
The dishwasher cannot now tilt in the event
a load is placed on the open door. If the
dishwasher is to be fully freestanding, both
side panels and the work top should be
fitted. These accessories can be purchased
where you purchased the dishwasher.
Freestanding installation
Tip!
A machine with side panels and a counter
top (freestanding) can, of course, also be
installed as a built-in unit.
CAUTION!
C. Semi-freestanding
If the dishwasher is positioned so that either
side is visible, a side panel can be fitted.
These accessories can be purchased
where you purchased the dishwasher.

A fully freestanding dishwasher must be
fitted with anti-tilt.
Connection to water
Connection to drainage
There must be a shut-off tap on the water
supply pipe. The shut-off tap should be
positioned above the work surface or at the
front of the sink unit.
When the drain hose is routed to a
connection nipple at the sink’s water trap
(see illustration 1), note that the hose must
be fastened level with the underside of the
sink unit – otherwise the dishwater from the
sink can run down into the dishwasher. The
drain hose is threaded onto a cone-shaped
connecting pipe at the sink unit’s water trap.
The cone-shaped pipe must be cut to an
internal diameter of at least 16 mm. For
other alternative connections, see
illustrations 2 and 3.
The water supply pipe has a connection
with a 1/2” or 3/4” internal thread depending
on country.
When the installation is complete, the shutoff tap should be opened to allow the pressure to settle for a while and to check that
all connections are tight.
The drain hose may be lengthened by a
maximum of 3 m (the total length of the
drain hose may not exceed 4.5 m). Any
connections and connecting pipes must
have an internal diameter of at least 16 mm.
However, the drain hose should ideally be
replaced with a new hose without joins.
Connection to electricity
A dishwasher fitted with a lead and plug
must be connected to an earthed socket.
Repairs and maintenance relating to safety
or performance must be carried out by a
qualified professional.
No part of the drain hose may be more than
950 mm above the bottom of the machine.
The hose must not be routed directly to the
floor drain or similar. In such cases, the
hose can act as a siphon and empty the
dishwasher.
Technical data
See the type plate on the right hand side of
the door.
CAUTION!
The lead must be disconnected or the socket
voltage-free while the work is carried out!
The hose must always discharge at least
350 mm above the bottom of the machine.
Connection to drainage
NB!
The hose must be fastened level with the
underside of the sink unit.
