Operating Instructions

• Never place the dishwasher in operation if the mains cable, water inlet or drain hose is damaged; or the control panel, work top or plinth area is damaged such that the inside of the appliance is freely accessible.

• If the mains lead is damaged, or is to be replaced for a longer lead, the cable (obtainable from AEG Service Force) must be replaced by a service engineer authorised by AEG.

• Never unplug the appliance by pulling on the cable, always pull the plug.

• Additions or modifications to the dishwasher are not permitted for safety reasons.

• Ensure that the door of the dishwasher is always closed when it is not being loaded or unloaded. In this way you will avoid anybody tripping over the open door and hurting themselves.

• Long bladed knives stored in an upright position are a potential hazard.

• Long and/or sharp items of cutlery such as carving knives must be positioned horizontally in the upper basket.

• When finished loading or unloading, close the door as an open door can be a hazard.

Correct Use

• Only wash household dishes using the dishwasher. If the appliance is used for other purposes, or is used incorrectly, the manufacturer cannot accept any liability for any damage caused.

• Only use detergents specifically designed for use in domestic dishwashers.

• Do not put any solvents in the dishwasher. There is a risk of an explosion!

• The anti-flood system provides dependable protection against damage due to leaks. For this system to function correctly, the following preconditions must be met:

– The appliance must remain connected to the mains even when it is switched off.

– The dishwasher must be correctly installed.

– Always shut off the water supply at the tap when the dishwasher is not to be used for longer periods, e.g. when you are away on holiday.

• Do not sit or stand on the open door, the appliance may tip over.

Operating Instructions

• In the event of a fault, first close the tap, then switch off the appliance and unplug it from the mains. If the appliance is permanently wired to the mains: remove the fuse.

Adjusting the water softener

To avoid scale deposits on the dishes and in the dishwasher, the dishes must be washed with soft water i.e. low lime content. The dishwasher therefore has a built-in water softener, in which tap water from a hardness of 4 °d (German degree) is softened with the aid of special salt.

Your water supplier will be able to inform you about the hardness range of the water in your area.

The water softener can be set to any of 5 settings: in °d

Operating Instructions

Filling with Salt for the Water Softener

1

Use only salt designed for dishwashers. Never fill the salt container with any another type of salt (e.g. culinary salt) or dishwasher detergent as this would irreparably damage the water softener.

Prior to filling with salt, please check each time that you really do have a packet of dishwasher salt in your hand.

Fill with dishwasher salt:

– Prior to using the dishwasher for the first time

– When the SALT indicator

J

on the control panel is illuminated.

3

If the water hardness in your area is less than 4 °d, you do not need to use dishwasher salt. The SALT indicator

J

on the control panel will remain illuminated.

0

1.

Open the door, remove the lower rack.

2.

SALE

SAL

T

SALZ

SEL

3. When using for the first time:

fill the salt container with water.

4.

Place the funnel supplied on the container opening.

Fill the container with salt through the funnel; the capacity of the container is approx. 1.0-1.5 kg depending on the grain size. Do not overfill the salt container with salt.

3

The water expelled by filling the salt container with salt runs out of the salt container onto the base of the washing compartment. This is not a cause for concern, the water will be pumped out at the start of the next wash programme.

5.

Clean any salt remnants on the container opening.

6.

Turn the lid clockwise to the stop, otherwise dishwasher salt will leak into the wash water, this could lead to poor wash results. To avoid this run a rinse programme after filling the salt container with special salt.

This will wash away salt water and any salt crystals that have been spilt.

3

Depending on the size of the salt grains, it can take several hours for the salt to dissolve in the water and the special salt indicator

J

to extinguish. The setting of the water softener and the consumption of salt are dependent on the hardness of the local water.

Operating Instructions

Filling with Rinse Aid

Rinse aid is automatically added during the last rinse, ensuring thorough rinsing, spot and streak free drying.

1

Only use rinse aid specifically designed for domestic dishwashers. Never fill the rinse aid container with any other substance as this would damage the appliance.

Fill with rinse aid:

– Prior to using the dishwasher for the first time

– When the window indicator has a dark centre surrounded by a light ring. If there is sufficient rinse aid in the container, the indicator window is completely dark.

The rinse aid compartment is on the inside of the dishwasher door.

0

1.

Open the door.

2.

Loading Cutlery and Dishes

1

Sponges, household cloths and any object that can absorb water should not be washed in the dishwasher

.

For washing in the dishwasher the following cutlery/dishes 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 glued parts that is not temperature resistant

• Wooden platters

• Items made from synthetic fibres

• Only wash stoneware in the dishwasher if it is specifically marked as being dishwashersafe by the manufacturer.

• Glazed patterns may fade if machine washed frequently.

• Silver and aluminium parts have a tendency to discolour during washing. Left-overs, e.g. egg white, egg yolk and mustard often cause discolouring and staining on silver.

Therefore always clean left-overs from silver immediately, if it is not to be washed straight after use.

• Some types of glass can become dull after a large number of washes.

• Before loading the dishes, you should:

– Remove all scraps of food.

– Soften remnants of burnt food in pans.

• When loading the dishes and cutlery, please note:

– Dishes and cutlery must not impede the rotation of the spray arms.

– Load hollow items such as cups, glasses, pans, etc. with the opening downwards so that water cannot collect in the container or a deep base.

– Dishes and items of cutlery must not lie inside one another, or cover each other

Operating Instructions

Bio Wash Programmes and Concentrated Detergents

Based on their chemical composition, dishwasher detergents can be split into two basic types:

– Conventional, alkaline detergents with caustic components

– Weak alkaline concentrated detergents with natural enzymes.

2

The use of BIO wash programmes in conjunction with concentrated detergents reduces pollution and is good for your dishes; the BIO wash programmes are specially matched to the soil dissolving properties of the enzymes in the concentrated detergent. It is for this reason that

BIO wash programmes can achieve the same results at 50 °C that can otherwise only be achieved using 65 °C programmes.

3

Detergent tablets

from different manufacturers dissolve at different rates. For this reason some detergent tablets cannot develop their full cleaning power during short programmes. Therefore please use normal programmes with pre wash when using detergent tablets.

Detergent Recommendations

For best results we recommend the use of Finish detergent, rinse aid and salt.

Operating Instructions

Installation and Connection Instructions

INSTALLATION AND CONNECTION

INSTRUCTIONS

Installing the Dishwasher

• The dishwasher must be installed on a firm floor and adjusted such that it is stable and level.

• To compensate for unevenness in the floor and to match the height of the appliance to that of surrounding units extend the threaded feet by unscrewing:

– use a screwdriver.

• For built-in, integrated and fully integrated dishwashers, the rear feet should be adjusted from the front of the appliance using a screwdriver.

• The drain hose, inlet hose and mains cable must be laid such that they are free to move in the rear of the plinth recess, so that they cannot be kinked or crushed.

• The dishwasher must also be screwed on tightly to the work surface or to the adjoining units. This is absolutely necessary so that its stability is guaranteed according to VDE regulations.

Installation and Connection Instructions

Leak Prevention System

For protection from damage due to water leaks, the dishwasher is equipped with a leak prevention system, the AQUA CONTROL SYSTEM.

In the event of a fault, the safety valve immediately interrupts the supply of water to the appliance and the drain pump switches on. By this means water can neither escape nor overflow. The remaining water in the appliance is automatically pumped out.

1

The AQUA CONTROL SYSTEM also works when the appliance is switched off – the appliance must however

not

be disconnected from the mains.

Installation and Connection Instructions
