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.
●
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.
3
●
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.
4
●
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.
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.

Important hints
Operating your dishwasher economically and with regard
for the environment
Collect your dirty dishes, stack them in the dishwasher, and only wash them
when both baskets are full, making sure that the latter are never overloaded.
Only then can you be sure that you are machine-washing economically and
with regard for the environment.
Always select the programme corresponding to the type of crockery and
degree of soiling (see "Washing programmes" chart).
Never overdose detergents, special salt or rinse-aid. Follow the dosage
recommendations in these operating instructions as well as the instructions
given by manufacturers of these products.
Make sure that the water softener is correctly set.
Unsuitable crockery
The following are unsuitable for machine washing:
- wooden boards or platters
- non-heat-resistant plastic parts
- lead crystal glass
- tin or copper items
- glued crockery or cutlery
- older types of cutlery with temperature-sensitive adhesive
- steel knives that are liable to rust
- cutlery with wood, horn, porcelain or mother-of-pearl handles.
6
Suitable crockery
The following items have certain machine washing limitations:
- Only wash earthenware crockery in your dishwasher if the manufacturer
has expressly indicated it as being suitable for that purpose.
- Some types of decoration which have been painted over the glaze may
fade after frequent machine washing.
- Silver and aluminium parts tend to discolour during machine washing.
- Many food residues, such as egg white, egg yolk and mustard often cause
discolouration or staining on silver. Silver crockery and cutlery should
therefore always be cleaned of food residues if they are not washed
immediately after a meal.
- Some types of glass may become cloudy after many washing cycles. You
should therefore continue to hand-wash especially valuable glassware.
When buying new crockery and cutlery, confirm that they are dishwashersafe.

Before using your dishwasher for the first time
When your new dishwasher is correctly set up and installed, you must first
make it ready for use.
Before using your dishwasher for the first time, proceed as follows:
- set the water softener;
- fill the special salt container with special salt;
- fill the rinse-aid dispenser with rinse-aid.
The following sections give you more detailed information about the
individual points.
Setting the water hardness range
Soft (low-lime) water is necessary for machine washing to avoid lime
deposits on crockery and in your dishwasher. Tap water with a hardness
above 4°d (German degree) must therefore be softened for machine washing.
For this purpose, your dishwasher is fitted with a water softener. The water
softener is treated (regenerated) automatically and at regular intervals with
salt solution. The salt consumption needed for regeneration thus depends on
the local water hardness. Your local water company will provide you with
information about water hardness in your area.
To ensure optimum regeneration of the water softener:
- the water softening system must be set to the local water hardness;
- the dishwasher salt container must always be filled with special salt.
Your local Water Company will provide you with information about water
hardness 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 you use phosphate free detergents containing enzymes, use salt starting
from 4°dH (7°TH).

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.
To fill with salt, unscrew the cap of the salt container. Pour about 1 litre of
water into the container, or until it is full (this is only necessary before filling
with salt for the first time).
Pour inside the container about 1.5 ÷ 1.8 kg of regenerating salt.
Clean any excess salt from the screw thread and the washer and carefully
close the cap.

Only use salt specifically designed for use in dishwashers.
All other types of salt not specifically designed for use in
dishwasher, specially table salt, will damage the water softener.
Caution: Only fill 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 could cause corrosion.
Salt refill indicator
The salt container will require topping up periodically.
The salt cap has a refill indicator window in the centre.
A green floater is clearly visible when there is salt inside the container, and
almost disappears when tha salt has finished, (ie. every 30 - 50 washes,
depending on the setting of the water softener) reminding you to add salt.
SR11
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
Open the container by turning the lid (A) anticlockwise. Pour the rinse-aid
into the filler opening until the indicator (B) on the side of the cover turns
completely dark (i.e. until the container is full)

Rinse aid replenishment indicator
Top up with rinse aid when the rinse aid control light on the control panel
flashes (approx. 70 - 80 ml).
Tighten firmly the cover.
Clean up any rinse aid spilt during filling with an absorbent cloth to avoid
excess foaming during the next wash.
Setting the rinse aid quantity to be added
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). Use the
tip of a knife or a screwdriver to rotate the selector. If drops of water or
white marks remain on the crockery after it has been washed, gradually
increase the dosage. If the crockery comes out with whitish, sticky streaks,
reduce the dosage.

Adding dishwashing detergent
Use only tablets, powder or liquid detergents specifically designed for
domestic dishwashers.
Before starting any of the dishwashing programmes, except for the rinse and
hold programme, load the detergent in the dispenser. To open the dispenser
lid, pull the catch (D). This will open it. To help you to correctly dose the right
amount of detergent, inside the container there are two reference marks:
- MIN = 15 ml
- MAX = 30 ml
M

DE12
The amount of detergent to be used varies depending on how soiled the
dishes are and the type of dishes being washed. We recommend the amounts
shown in the programme chart.
After filling the dispenser with detergent, close the lid.
All the programmes with prewash require a small extra amount of detergent
to be poured over the lid of the dispenser, as shown on the picture.
DE11
16
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.
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.
Phosphate free detergents with enzymes
In these low-alkaline compact powders the environment unfriendly
components have been replaced by natural enzymes and other more
biodegradables substances.
These new compact powders are generally phosphate-free.
As phosphates have water softening properties, we suggest you to add salt to
the container even if the hardness of your water is as low as 4°dH (7°TH).
This will avoid lime deposits on crockery and the inner tub.
17
Loading your machine
Before placing dishes in the machine, remove any large scraps of food from
the plates (small bones, toothpicks, fish bones, scraps of meat and vegetables,
fruit skins etc.) to avoid clogging the filters and consequently reducing
performance.
Open the door and slide out the baskets to load the dishes.
Before loading, remove all scraps of food and soak very heavily soiled pots
and pans.
Always arrange saucepans, cups and glasses etc. upside-down.
Tilt items with convex or concave surfaces so that the water drains off easily.
Long items of cutlery such as ladles, carving knives etc. should be positioned
horizontally in the upper basket.
Avoid contact between the dishes as far as possible; correct arrangement of
the items will give better washing results.
Light items (plastic bowls etc.) should be loaded in the upper basket and
arranged so that they do not move during washing.
The lower basket
The lower basket is designed to take saucepans, lids, plates (up to 27 cm in
diameter), salad bowls, cutlery etc.
UI35
IEC 436 / DIN 44990
UI27
Serving dishes and large lids should be arranged around the edge of the
basket, ensuring that the upper spray arm can turn freely.
18
Cutlery basket
Place knives, forks and spoons in the cutlery basket with their handles
pointing downwards.
Arrange cutlery loosely and distribute it in all compartments so that each
individual article has good contact with washing water. Also do not arrange
spoons and forks with their dirty side in contact with each other.
For better cleaning results, we recommend that spoons should be
intermingled with other cutlery items so that they do not nestle into one
another.
Important! Exceptionally long cutlery, such as soup ladles, kitchen knives, or
the like, may obstruct the upper spray arm. Such cutlery can be placed in the
upper basket.
UI41
Long bladed knives stored in a 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.
19
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.
US34

Operating instructions
Set and start the programme
Push the plug into the socket.
Open the water supply.
Close the dishwasher door.
Turn the programme selector dial clockwise, until the letter of the required
programme is opposite the indicator mark on the control panel.
Press the On/Off pushbutton; the pilot light comes on and the programme
starts.
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.
If you wish to interrupt the wash programme at any time press the On/Off
button.
Depressing the On/Off button again the programme will start from the point
where it was interrupted.
At the end of the programme
At the end of the washing programme the machine stops automatically.
The pilot light remains on until the On/Off button is depressed.
Switch off the dishwasher by pressing the On/Off button and open the door.
When the wash programme has finished, it is recommended that the
dishwasher is unplugged and the water tap turned off.
Do not open the door during the hot phase: this may
cause hot water escape.
Care must be taken if the door is opened immediately
after a programme has finished, as steam may escape.
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 the upper one; this will avoid water
dripping from the upper basket onto the dishes in the lower one.
21
Care instructions
Internal and external cleaning
Clean the screen and controls of your dishwasher where necessary with a soft
cloth and lukewarm water.
Important note! Never use commercially available furniture cleaners or
aggressive detergents.
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 can sometimes accumulate in the centre filter (A) and should
be removed after each wash by rinsing the filter under running water.
To remove the filter, simply pull it outward by the handle.
Once cleaned, refit the filter by pushing it back to its original position until it
engages.

which prevent used water from flowing back into the drinking water mains.
Your dishwasher can be connected to either a cold or hot water supply of
max. 60°C.
Never connect your dishwasher to open hot water appliances and continuous
flow heaters!
The supply hose is fitted with a screwed hose connection (to DIN 259) and
can be connected to an outlet valve (water tap) with male thread (3/4").
Suitable washers are supplied with the machine. Do not use any washers
other than these!
The nut of the screwed hose connection can be tightened by and. If you require a supply hose which is longer than the one supplied, use only the VDEapproved complete hose kit (obtainable from our service centre) continuously
and to adequate length.
Never lengthen existing hoses.
Important note! The supply hose must not be kinked, squashed, or twisted.
Please ensure careful running.
To avoid reductions in water supply to the kitchen, we recommend you to
install a separate tap. Failing this, fit a branch piece to the existing water tap.
Additional installation expenditure (on the building side) can be reduced by
use of conventional sink mixers with connection and shutoff valve.

Minimum water pressure:
0,5 bar (5 N/cm2, 0,05 MPa).
If your water pressure is under 0,5 bar, please ask our service centre for
advice.
Maximum allowable water pressure:
8 bar (80 N/cm2, 0,8 MPa).
For a water pressure over 8 bar, a pressure-reducing valve (obtainable from
your specialist retailer) must be fitted upstream.
Water outlet connection
The end of the drain hose can be connected as follows:
●
to the sink outlet siphon, securing it if necessary with a clip;
●
hooked over the edge of the sink using the special curved plastic guide
provided;
●
to a wall outlet provided with vent-hole, minimum internal diameter 4 cm.
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.
