Safety instructions
The safety of AEG electrical appliances conforms to accepted rules of
technology and the Appliance Safety Act. We as manufacturers, however, see
ourselves as being obliged to familiarise you with the following safety
instructions.
Using your dishwasher for its intended purpose
● Only use your dishwasher for machine washing of household crockery. If
your machine is misused or used for any purposes other than that
for which it is intended, the manufacturer cannot be held liable for any
damage caused.
●
For safety reasons, you should not convert or modify your dishwasher in
any way.
Before using your dishwasher for the first time
● Check your dishwasher for any transport damage. Never connect a
damaged machine. If your dishwasher is damaged, you should contact
your supplier.
●
Your dishwasher must be correctly installed and connected. Please read
the section on "Installation" to make sure you know all about this.
●
Before using your dishwasher for the first time, do not forget that the
nominal voltage and current type indicated on the rating plate of your
machine must be the same as the nominal voltage and current type at the
installation site. The necessary electrical fusing is also given on the rating
plate.
Child safety
● Packaging parts (e.g. foils, styrene foam) may be dangerous for
children,who could even be suffocated! You should therefore keep all
packaging well away from children.
4
●
Children may not recognise the dangers of improper use of electrical
appliances. You should therefore ensure proper supervision during
operation and not allow your children to play with your dishwasher.
●
Detergents may have a caustic effect on eyes, mouth and throat and may
even cause suffocation! Keep all detergents in a safe place out of
children’s reach.
152982 05/1 en 14-04-2000 11:00 Pagina 5
●
The water in your dishwasher should not be used for drinking. Detergent
residues may still be present in your machine. Make sure you do not
splash these caustic residues onto your skin or suffocate yourself! Keep
children well away from your dishwasher when its door is open.
Your dishwasher in day-to-day use
● Never operate your dishwasher if the electrical supply lead, supply or
drainhose, control panel, worktop or plinth are damaged.
●
If there is a fault, first turn the water tap off. Then switch off your
machine and pull the plug out of the socket. If there is a fixed
connection, switch off or unscrew the fuse(s).
●
Never pull the plug out of the socket by the cable - always hold the plug.
●
Dishwasher repairs should only be performed by trained personnel.
Improper repairs may seriously endanger the user. If your dishwasher
needs to be repaired, you should contact our service centre or your
retailer.
●
Never place any solvents in your dishwasher or you may cause an
explosion!
●
Do not rest or sit on the open door or the machine could tilt.
●
Before using special dishwasher salt, detergent or rinse-aid, make sure
that the manufacturer of these products expressly specifies their use in
domestic dishwashers.
●
Always turn off the water tap when your dishwasher is left unattended
for any length of time, e.g. when you are away on holiday.
●
Only transport the dishwasher in an upright position. Tipping it upside
down during transport could cause salty water to leak into the internal
compartment and lead to the formation of rust.

152982 05/1 en 14-04-2000 11:00 Pagina 6
Disposing of packaging and old machine
Disposing of the packaging
Our dishwashers require effective protective packaging in transit, though we
always confine ourselves to what is absolutely necessary.
Warning! Packaging parts (e.g. foils, styrene foam) may be
dangerous for children, who could even be suffocated! You
should therefore keep all packaging well away from children.
All packaging materials used are environmentally compatible and reusable.
The cardboard parts are produced from recycled paper, and the wood is
untreated.
The plastics are marked as follows:
>PE<
for polyethylene, e.g. packaging foils.
>PS<
for polystyrene, e.g. padding (essentially CFC-Free).
>POM< for polyoxymethylene, e.g. plastic clamps.
Give the packaging for reuse to your local recycling centre. Your municipal or
local authority will give you its address.
Disposing of your old machine
When your machine finally reaches the end of its life and you withdraw it
from service, you should render it unserviceable before having it disposed of.
Warning! Children at play could lock themselves in your
machine (and suffocate) or otherwise endanger their lives.
Therefore pull out the main plug and detach and discard the
electrical supply lead.
Disable the door lock so that the door no longer closes.
Marking of plastic parts for graded recycling: all plastic parts in your
machine are marked with internationally standardised abbreviations (e.g.
<PS> for polystyrene). When your machine is disposed of, this enables plastic
waste to be sorted into individual types for environmentally conscious
recycling.
Take your decommissioned machine to your local recycling centre or dealer,
who will take it back from you for a small handling charge.

Economical and ecological dishwashing
●
Only connect the dishwasher to the hot water supply if your hot water is
not electrically heated.
●
Ensure that the water softener is correctly adjusted.
●
Do not pre-rinse under running water.
●
Select the wash programme to suit the nature and degree of the soiling
on the dishes.
●
Do not use more detergent, special salt or rinse aid than is recommended
in these operating instructions and by the manufacturer of the respective
product.

Before using your dishwasher for the first time
1. Ensure that the electrical and water connections comply with the
installation instructions.
2. Remove all packaging from inside the appliance.
3. Set the water softener.
4. Pour 1 litre of water inside the salt container and then fill with salt.
5. Fill the rinse-aid dispenser.
Setting the water hardness range
The dishwasher is equipped with a water softener designed to remove
minerals and salts from the water supply, which would have a detrimental or
adverse effect on the operation of the appliance.
The higher the content of these salts, the harder your water is.
Water hardness is measured in equivalent scales, German and French.
The softener should be adjusted according to the hardness of the water in
your area.
To ensure optimum regeneration of the water softener:
- the water softenening must be set to the local water hardness;
- the dishwasher salt container must always be filled with special salt.
Your local Water Authority can advise you on the hardness of the water in
your area.
The dishwasher is factory set at level 2.
If this level is not suitable for your area the softener should be adjusted.

If your water is level 0 it is already soft and therefore there is no
need to use salt. In this case adjust the water softener on level 1
without using salt.
The salt indicator on the control panel will always remain
illuminated when the machine is switched on.
Filling with special salt
Caution! The packaging of dishwasher salt and detergents are often very
similar. The accidental filling of the salt compartment with detergent would
ruin the water softener. Each time you add salt, make sure the carton you
have in your hand really is salt.
Only use salt specifically designed for use in dishwashers.
All other types of salt not specifically designed for use in a
dishwasher, especially table salt, will damage the water softener.
Only fill with salt just before starting one of the complete
washing programmes (not the "Rinse and hold" programme).
This will prevent any grains of salt or salty water, which may
have been spilled, remaining on the bottom of the machine for
any period of time, which may cause corrosion.
11
152982 05/1 en 14-04-2000 11:00 Pagina 12
To fill:
1. To fill with salt, unscrew the cap of
the salt container.

2. Pour 1 litre of water inside
the container (this is necessary
only before filling with salt for
the first time).
3. Using the funnel provided, pour in
the salt until the container is full.
Do not worry if water overflows
from the unit when filling with
salt, this is quite normal.
SR14
4. Replace the cap making sure that
there is no trace of salt on the
screw thread or on the gasket.
5. Screw on the cap tightly.
When this has been done, all that is required is to periodically top up the
container with salt.
Salt refill indicator
The salt container will require topping up periodically.
You are reminded of this by the salt indicator light on the control panel.
The salt indicator light on the control panel can remain illuminated for
2-6 hours after salt has been replenished, assuming the dishwasher
remains switched on. If you are using salts that take longer to dissolve
then this can take longer. The function on the machine is not affected.

152982 05/1 en 14-04-2000 11:00 Pagina 13
The rinse-aid
The rinse-aid ensures brilliant crockery and also helps it to dry. It is
automatically dosed in during the hot rinsing cycle. The storage
compartment built in to the in side of the door can hold about 110 ml of
rinse-aid, which will be sufficient for between 16 and 40 dishwashing
programmes, according to the dosage setting.
Filling up the rinse-aid
1. Open the container by turning the
lid (A) anticlockwise.
2. Add the rinse aid until the
container is completely full. The
indicator (B) will be completely
dark.
Ensure that the lid is closed after every
refill.

Adjusting the dose
The correct dosage of the rinse-aid
should be regulated on the basis of
the shine and drying results.
For this purpose, set the quantity of
liquid by means of the six-position
selector (C) located on the inside of
the filler opening (minimum quantity
is position 1, maximum quantity is
position 6).
Start from position 3.

Loading cutlery and dishes
Sponges, household cloths and any object that can absorb water
may not be washed in the dishwasher.
For washing in the dishwasher the following cutlery/dishes
are not suitable:
●
Cutlery with wooden, horn, china or
mother of pearl handles.
●
Plastic items that are not heat resistant.
●
Older cutlery with cement that is not
temperature resistant.
●
Bonded cutlery items or dishes.
●
Pewter or copper items.
●
Lead crystal glass.
●
Steel items subject to rusting.
●
Wooden platters.
●
Items made from synthetic fibres.
are of limited suitability:
●
Only wash stoneware in the dishwasher
if it is specifically marked as being
dishwasher-safe 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.
Attention!
When buying new dishes, ensure that they are dishwasher proof.
Before placing dishes in the machine, remove any scraps of food, to avoid
clogging the filters and consequently reducing the performance.
Do not load very small items which can fall through the baskets.
Open the door and slide out the baskets.

152982 05/1 en 14-04-2000 11:00 Pagina 16
The lower basket
The lower basket is designed to take saucepans, lids, plates, salad bowls,
cutlery etc.
Serving dishes and large lids should be arranged around the edge of the
basket, ensuring that the upper spray arm can turn freely.
UI49
UI19
The two rear rows of prongs on the lower basket can be easily lowered to
allow you to load pots, pans and bowls.
To lower the prongs:
- Slightly pull them upward and let
them drop down (see picture).
- To bring them back to the standing
position, just pull them up again.

152982 05/1 en 14-04-2000 11:00 Pagina 17
Cutlery basket
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.
Take care when loading or unloading sharp items such as
knives.
Cutlery should be placed in the removable cutlery basket with the handles
facing downwards. If the handles protrude from the bottom of the basket,
obstructing the lower spray arm, load the cutlery with the handles facing
downwards.
Mix spoons with other cutlery to prevent the from sticking together.
Silver cutlery tends to go black if mixed with steel cutlery. Place it in the
cutlery basket separate from the others.
Arrange spoons, dessert spoons, knives and other small items of cutlery in the
racks on both sides of the cutlery basket.
UI03

152982 05/1 en 14-04-2000 11:00 Pagina 18
The upper basket
The upper basket is designed for plates
(dessert plates, saucers, dinner plates up to
24 cm in diameter), salad bowls, cups and
glasses; these should be arranged as shown
in the pictures.
Glasses with long stems can be placed
upside-down in the raised cup-racks
Arrange items on and underneath the folddown cup racks so that water can reach all
surfaces.
US64
Light items (plastic bowls etc.) should be loaded in the upper basket and
arranged so they do not move.
Before closing the door, ensure that the spray arms can rotate freely.

152982 05/1 en 14-04-2000 11:00 Pagina 19
Adjusting the height of the upper basket
If washing very large plates (over 27 cm and up to 31 cm in diameter) you
can load them in the lower basket after moving the upper basket to the
higher position.
To move to the higher position proceed as follows:
1. Move the front runner stops (A) of the
upper basket outward and slide the
basket out.
A
2. Refit the basket in the higher position
and replace the stops (A) in their
original position.
RC01
When the top basket is in the higher position it will only take plates up
to 20 cm in diameter and you will not be able to use the raised cup
racks.
After loading your machine always close the door, as an open door
can be a hazard.

152982 05/1 en 14-04-2000 11:00 Pagina 20
Use of detergent
Attention!
Only use detergents specifically designed for use in dishwashers.
If using powder detergents proceed
as follows:
1. Open the dispenser lid by pulling
the catch (D).
Min = 15 g
Max = 30 g D
2. Add the detergent. As all
detergents are not the same, please
pay attention to the dosage
instructions from the manufacturer
of your brand.
M
M IN
AX
3. Always close the lid.
DE17
4. If the programme has a prewash
add a little amount of detergent
over the lid of the dispenser.
If using detergent in tablets proceed
as follows:
1. For all programmes; place 1 tablet
inside the detergent dispenser.
DE02
2. Always close the lid.
3. For all programmes with prewash;
place a portion of a further tablet
on the lid of the detergent
dispenser.
At the end of any washing programme the lid is always open, ready for the
next wash.
Since not all detergents are the same, you should also consult the
instructions on the packet.
20
152982 05/1 en 14-04-2000 11:00 Pagina 21
Remember that insufficient quantities of detergent will produce
poor washing results whereas an excessive amount of detergent
does not improve washing results and is also wasteful.
Using no more than correct amount of detergent also contributes to
reducing pollution.
Compact detergents with enzymes
In these compact powders the environmentally unfriendly components have
been replaced by natural enzymes and other more biodegradable substances.
The enzymes deploy their full dirt dissolving power at a temperature as low
as 50°C.
By choosing the "Bio" programmes you can therefore achieve the same
cleaning results that would otherwise be achievable only with 65°C
programmes and conventional detergents.
These 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 4°dH
(8°TH).
This will avoid lime deposits on crockery and the inner tub.

the dosage instructions from the manufacturer of your brand.
Close the detergent dispenser lid.
Important! If the half load option is selected remember to reduce
the quantity of detergent.
6. Set the programme
24
Close the dishwasher door
Turn the programme selector dial clockwise until the letter of the
programme you wish to select corresponds with the programme marker
on the control panel.
If necessary select the temperature of the main wash or the half load
option according to the instructions in the "Washing programmes" chart
(see "Required push buttons").
152982 05/1 en 14-04-2000 11:01 Pagina 25
7. Start the programme
Turn the water tap on.
Depress the On/Off push button. The On/Off indicator light will come
on and the machine will start.
8. At the end of the washing programme
At the end of the washing programme the machine stops automatically.
The On/Off indicator light remains on until the On/Off push button is
depressed.
Wait a few minutes before removing the dishes; in this way they will be
cooler and drying will be improved.
Empty the lower basket first and then upper one; this will avoid water
dripping from the upper basket the dishes in the lower one.
Caution!
In general it is not advisable to open the door while the machine
is working; if the door is opened however, a safety device ensures
that the machine stops.
Caution!
Opening the door could let very hot steam escape: you risk being
scalded! Open the door with great care.
Do not open the door during the hot phase: this may cause hot
water escape.

152982 05/1 en 14-04-2000 11:01 Pagina 26
Maintenance and cleaning
Internal and external cleaning
Do not under any circumstances use furniture care products or
aggressive cleaners.
If necessary, clean the controls only with a soft cloth and pure warm water.
The spray arms do not need cleaning.
Occasionally check the internal containers, door seal and water inlet for
soiling, clean if necessary.
We recommend every 3 months to run a 65°C wash programme without
dishes using detergent.
Cleaning the central filter (after each wash)
Scraps of food may accumulate in the drain filter (A) and should be removed
by rinsing the filter under running water.
To remove the drain filter
- simply pull it out by the handle.
Once cleaned, refit the filter by pushing it back to its original position until it
engages.

screws, move the top to the required
position and then retighten the screws.
IN26
Fitting under a counter (kitchen worktop or sink)
By removing the machine’s worktop, you can install it under a close fitting
sink unit or a pre-existing top, providing the dimensions of the recess
correspond to those shown in the picture.
Proceed as follows:
- Remove the machine’s worktop by
unscrewing the two rear retaining
screws, pull from the front and slide
out the rear slots, lifting the worktop.
- Insert the machine after adjusting
height and levelling with the adjustable
feet. When inserting the machine,
ensure that the water inlet and drain

Levelling
Good levelling is essential for correct closure and sealing of the door.
When the appliance is correctly levelled, the door will not catch on the
levelling spacers on either side of the cabinet.
If the door does not close correctly, loosen or tighten the adjustable feet
until the machine is perfectly level.

Connection instructions
Any electrical work required to install this appliance should be carried
out by a qualified electrician or competent person.
Any plumbing work required to install this appliance should be carried
out by a qualified plumber or competent person.
Remove all packaging before positioning the machine.
If possible, position the machine next to a water tap and a drain.
Water supply connections
This dishwasher may be fed with either hot (max. 60°C) or cold water.
Nevertheless we advise a cold water supply.
A hot water supply is not always efficient with very soiled crockery as it
shortens the washing programmes.
Feeding the appliance with a hot water supply (max. 60°C) will allow you to
obtain considerably shorter programmes.
The water pressure must be within the limits given in the technical
specifications.
Your local Water Authority will advise you on the average mains pressure in
your area.
The dishwasher features fill and drain hoses which can be turned either to
the left or the right to suit the installation.
The locknut must be correctly fitted to avoid water leaks.
Avoid bends or kinks in the hose which could prevent or slow down the
water supply.
If the machine is connected to new pipes or pipes which have not been used
for a long time, you should run the water for a few minutes before
connecting the inlet hose. This will prevent
deposits of sand or rust clogging the inlet
hose filter.
For making the connection itself, the
coupling nut fitted to the machine’s
supply hose is designed to screw onto
either a 3/4" inch gas thread spout, or to a
purpose made quick-coupling tap such as
the Press-block.

The waste connection must be at a height of between 30 cm (minimum) and
100 cm (maximum) from the floor.
It makes no difference which way the drain hose faces, either to the right or
left of the dishwasher.
Avoid bending or kinking the hose as this could prevent or slow down the
discharge of water.

Extension hoses
The necessary extension hoses can be obtained from specialist shops or from
our technical assistance centres.
The extension hose must be no longer than 2 metres and its internal
diameter must be no smaller than the diameter of the hose provided.
Likewise the internal diameter of the couplings used for connection to the
waste outlet must be no smaller than the diameter of the drain hose.

Electrical connection
Before plugging the appliance into the wall socket, make sure that:
1. The mains voltage corresponds to the voltage given in the technical
specifications.
2. The meter, fuses, mains power supply and wall socket can all take the
maximum load required.
Make sure that the socket and plug are compatible without having to use
any type of adaptor. If necessary, have the domestic wiring system socket
replaced.
Safety standards require the appliance to be earthed.
The Manufacturer accepts no liability for failure to observe the
above safety precautions.
