Safety Instructions
The safety aspects of AEG electrical appliances comply with accepted
technical standards and the German Appliance Safety Law. Nevertheless, as a manufacturer we consider it our obligation to make you
aware of the following safety information:
Installation, Connection and Placing into Operation
• The dishwasher may only be transported upright.
• Check the dishwasher for transport damage. Do not in any circumstances connect an appliance that is damaged. In the case of damage,
please contact your supplier.
• Prior to placing the appliance in operation, ensure that the nominal
voltage and type of supply on the rating plate match that of the supply where the appliance is to be installed. The fuse rating is also to be
found on the rating plate.
• For information on how to correctly install and connect up your dishwasher, please read the „Installation“ section. Multiway plugs / connectors and extension cables must not be used. This could constitute
a safety hazard.
Child Safety
• Children often do not recognise the hazards associated with the use
of electrical appliances. It is therefore important that you ensure
children are adequately supervised and that you do not allow children to play with the dishwasher – there is a risk that children can
shut themselves inside the appliance (risk of suffocation!).
• Packaging materials (e.g. films, styrofoam) can be dangerous for children. Risk of suffocation! Keep packaging away from children.
• Detergents can cause burns to the eyes, mouth, and throat, or even
cause choking! Please observe the manufacturer's safety instructions
for cleaners and detergents.
• The water in your dishwasher is not suitable for drinking. If there are
still remnants of detergent in the appliance, there is a risk of burns!
• When disposing of the dishwasher: unplug from the mains, cut off
and dispose of the mains cable. Break the door lock so that the door
no longer shuts.
5
Operating Instructions
General Safety
• Repairs to the dishwasher are only to be carried out by qualified service engineers. Improper repairs can give rise to significant hazards for
the user. If your appliance needs repairing, please contact customer
service or your dealer.
• 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 customer service) 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.
• Sharp knives and other item of cutlery with sharp edges must be laid
in the upper rack or placed in the cutlery rack with the point facing
downwards.
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.
• Prior to use, ensure that the manufacturers of the special salt, detergent, and rinse aid employed specifically permit the usage of their
products in household 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.
6
Operating Instructions
• Do not sit or stand on the open door, the appliance may tip over.
• 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: switch off the fuse(s) or unscrew them.
2
Disposal
Disposing of the Packaging Material
Dispose of the dishwasher packaging material correctly. All the packaging materials used are harmless to the environment and can be recycled.
• Plastic parts are marked with standard international abbreviations:
– >PE<
for polyethylene, e.g. sheet wrapping material
– >PS<
for polystyrene, e.g. padding material (always CFC-free)
– >POM< for polyoxymethylene, e.g. plastic clips
• Cardboard packaging is manufactured from recycled paper and
should be deposited in the waste paper collection for recycling.
Disposal of old appliances
As and when you cease to use your dishwasher, please take it to a recycling centre or to your dealer who will, for a small contribution to the
costs, dispose of it for you.
2
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 dishes 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.

Prior to using for the first time
Prior to using for the first time, remove all the clips with which the dish
racks are secured for transport. Then perform the following steps:
0 1. Adjust the water softener
2. Fill with Special Salt for the Water Softener
3. Fill with Rinse Aid
3
Special salt and rinse aid must not be added if you use 3-in-1 detergent
tablets.
9
Operating Instructions
Adjusting the Water Softener
To prevent the build up of scale on dishes and in the dishwasher, the
dishes must be washed with soft, i.e. low lime content water. For this
reason the dishwasher is fitted with a water softener in which tap
water from a hardness of 4 °d (German degrees) is softened with the
aid of special salt.
3
Your local water authority can advise you on the hardness of the water
in your area.
The water softener has 4 settings.

Adjust the water softener in accordance with the table to suit your area:
1. Open the door on the dishwasher.
2. Remove the lower rack from the
dishwasher.
3. Turn the water hardness switch to 1,
2, 3 or 4.
4. Replace the lower rack and close the
door of the dishwasher.
Operating Instructions
Filling with Special Salt for the Water Softener
1
Use only special salt for dishwashers. Never fill the salt container with
any another type of salt (e.g. culinary salt) or dishwasher detergent.
This would irreparably damage the water softener.
Prior to filling with salt, please check each time that you really do have
a packet of special salt in your hand.
Fill with special salt:
– Prior to using the dishwasher for the first time
– If a green mark can be seen under the lid of the special salt container,
then there is sufficient special salt. If the green mark cannot be seen,
you must refill the container with special salt.
3
If the water hardness in your area is less than 4 °d, you do not need to
use special salt. The green mark will then not be visible. The function of
the appliance is not impaired.
0 1. Open the door, remove the lower
rack.
2. Undo the lid on the salt container by
turning it anticlockwise.
3. Only 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 special 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 special salt.
3

The water expelled by filling the salt container with special 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 special 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.
11
Operating Instructions
Depending on the size of the salt grains, it can take several hours for
the salt to dissolve in the water and the green mark to become visible
again. The setting of the water softener and thus the consumption of
salt are dependent on the hardness of the local water.
3
Filling with Rinse Aid
Rinse aid ensures that your dishes gleam and are free from spots, and
that you glasses are clear.
1
Use only branded rinse aid for dishwashers. Never fill the rinse aid container with any another substance (e.g. concentrated vinegar). This
would damage the appliance.
Fill with rinse aid:
– Prior to using the dishwasher for the first time
– When a dark point surrounded by a light ring is to be seen in the
indicator window on the container. If there is rinse aid in the container, the indicator window is uniformly dark.
The rinse aid compartment is on the inside of the dishwasher door.
0 1. Open the door.
2. Press the rinse aid compartment
release button with your finger.
3. Fully open the rinse aid compartment
lid.
12
Operating Instructions
4. Fill with rinse aid exactly up to the
level marked “max”; this corresponds
to a quantity of approx. 140 ml.
5. Close the lid and press until it locks
into place.
6. Wipe up any spilt rinse aid with a
cloth. Otherwise too much foam will
be formed during the wash.
Adjusting Rinse Aid Dosing
3
As the dishes are washed rinse aid is released from the dispenser into
the wash water. The dose is factory set at 4, and can be adjusted from
1 to 6. Only change the setting if streaks, milky spots or dried on water
marks are visible on glasses or crockery.
0 1. Open the door of the dishwasher.
2. Press the rinse aid compartment
release button with your finger.
3. Fully open the rinse aid compartment
lid.
4. Set the dose level.
5. Close the lid and press until it locks
into place.
6. If rinse aid has run out, wipe up with
a cloth.

Operating Instructions
Use of "3 in 1"/ Combi Detergent Tablets
General Advice
These products are tablets with combined detergent/rinse-aid and salt
functions.
0 1. Before using these products you should first check that the water hardness in your supply is compatible with the use of these products as per
the detergent manufacturers instructions (on the product packaging).
2. These products should be strictly used according to the detergent manufacturers instructions.
Do not place the tablets in the tub or the cutlery basket as this will
result in poorer wash results. The tablets should be placed in the
detergent doser.
3. If you encounter problems when using "3 in1" products for the first
time then please contact the detergent manufacturers care line (the
telephone number is given on the product packaging).
1
Special Advice
When using combination products, the rinse-aid and salt lights are no
longer useful. It may be helpful therefore to switch the rinse aid off please note that only some dishwashers have this facility - and selecting the lowest possible setting for water hardness.
For more information please refer to your instruction manual.
If you decide to switch to the use of a standard detergent system we
advise that you:
• Refill both the salt and rinse aid compartments.
• Switch the waterhardness setting to the highest possible position
and run for three normal cycles without a load.
• Readjust the waterhardness setting again according to the conditions
for your region (as per the instruction manual).
20
Operating Instructions
Concentrated Detergent
Based on their chemical composition, dishwasher detergents can be
split into two basic types:
– conventional, alkaline detergents with caustic components
– low alkaline concentrated detergents with natural enzymes.
2
The use of 50 °C wash programmes in conjunction with concentrated
detergents reduces pollution and is good for your dishes; these wash
programmes are specially matched to the dirt-dissolving properties of
the enzymes in the concentrated detergent. For this reason 50 °C wash
programmes in which concentrated detergents are used can achieve
the same results that can otherwise only be achieved using 65 °C programmes.
Detergent tablets
3
Detergent tablets of different makes dissolve at different speeds. For
this reason some detergent tablets cannot develop their full cleaning
power during short programmes. Therefore please use wash programmes with pre wash when using detergent tablets.

• Hot dishes are sensitive to knocks. The dishes should therefore be
allowed to cool down before removing them from the appliance.
• Leave the dishes in the dishwasher for approx. 15 minutes after the
end of the programme so that they dry better and can cool down.
• Empty the lower rack first, then the upper rack. In this way you will
avoid any water left on the upper rack dripping onto the dishes in the
lower rack and causing water spots.
Care and Cleaning

Installation and Connection Instructions
INSTALLATION AND CONNECTION
INSTRUCTIONS
Installing the Dishwasher
• The dishwasher must be installed on a firm floor and adjusted to
ensure 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 not be kinked or crushed
when the dishwasher is in position.
• The dishwasher must also be screwed on tightly to the work surface
or to the adjoining units. This is essential to ensure the dishwasher
does not tip.

Installation and Connection Instructions
Connecting the Dishwasher
Water Connection
The dishwasher is fitted with safety devices that prevent the wash
water returning into the drinking water system and comply with the
applicable plumbing regulations.
• The dishwasher can be connected to cold and hot water supplies up
to max. 60 °C.
• The dishwasher must not be connected to open hot water appliances or instantaneous water heaters.
Permitted water pressure
Lowest permitted water pressure:
1 bar (=10 N/cm2 =100 kPa)
Consult your installer if the water pressure is less than 1 bar.
Highest permitted water pressure:
10 bar (=100 N/cm2 =1 MPa)
In the case of a water pressure greater
than 10 bar, a pressure reduction valve
must be used (available from your
dealer).
Connect the inlet hose
1
0
3
The water inlet hose must not be
kinked, crushed or entangled when it is being connected up.
Connect the threaded hose fitting (ISO 228-1:2000) on the water inlet
hose to a tap with an external thread (¾ inch). The inlet hose is
equipped either with a plastic or with a metal connection nut:
– Tighten plastic hose connection nuts by hand only.
– Metal hose connection nuts must be tightened using an
appropriate tool. Finally, visually check that it is water-tight (ensure
that the tap is not dripping).
• In order that access to the tap in the kitchen is not limited by the use
of the dishwasher, we recommend the installation of an additional
tap, or fitting a two way adapter to the existing tap.
• If you need a longer water inlet hose than that supplied, VDE
approved complete hose sets are to be used. These are available from
your local Service Force Centre.
31
Installation and Connection Instructions
3
The following section is only applicable to dishwashers that have a
safety valve on the threaded hose fitting for the tap:
Water inlet hose with safety valve
After connecting the double-walled water inlet hose, the safety valve is
next to the tap. Therefore the water inlet hose is only under pressure
while the water is running. If the water inlet hose starts to leak during
this operation, the safety valve cuts off the running water and the
draining pump in the dishwasher is switched on.
1
32
Please take care when installing the water inlet hose:
– The electrical cable for the safety valve is in the double-walled water
inlet hose. Do not immerse the water inlet hose or the safety valve in
water.
– If the water inlet hose or the safety valve is damaged, remove the
mains plug immediately.
– A water inlet hose with safety valve must only be replaced by a
specialist or Customer Services.
Installation and Connection Instructions

Drain hose
1
The drain hose must not be kinked, crushed or entangled.
• Connecting the drain hose:
– Maximum permitted height: 1 metre.
– Minimum required height 40 cm above the lower edge of the
machine.
Extension hoses
• Extension hoses are available from
your dealer or customer service.
The internal diameter of the extension hoses must be 19 mm to
ensure that the function of the
appliance is not impeded.
• Extension hoses may be laid a maximum of 3 metres horizontally; the
maximum permitted height for the
connection for the drain hose is
then 85 cm.
Sink outlet connection
• The outlet of the drain hose (ø 19 mm) fits all commonly available
sink outlet spigot types. The outer diameter of the spigot connection
must be at least 15 mm.
• The drain hose must be fixed to the sink outlet connection using the
hose clamp supplied.
If the dishwasher is fitted at a high position
If the dishwasher is installed at a high level, and the drainhose connection is less than 30 cm from the bottom of the appliance, adapter kit
ET 111099520 must be fitted. This is available from Customer Service.
Water drain into wash basins (only possible with free-standing
appliances)
In the case that you wish to hang the drain hose in a wash basin, use a
detachable hose elbow. You can obtain this from AEG customer service
under spare part number ET 646 069 190.
0 1. Fit the elbow to the drain hose.
2. Secure the drain hose against sliding off the edge of the wash basin.

tap.
33
Installation and Connection Instructions
Leak Prevention System
For protection from damage due to water leaks, the dishwasher is
equipped with a leak prevention system.
In the event of a fault, the safety valve in the water inlet hose immediately interrupts the supply of water to the appliance and the drain
pump is activated. The remaining water in the appliance is automatically pumped out.
1
The leak prevention system also works when the appliance is switched
off.
Electrical connection
1
34
In compliance with electric company technical requirements for mains
connections, hard-wired connections to the mains may only be made
by approved electri-cians.
When connecting the appliance, observe the German VDE regulations
and, if applicable, any additional conditions required by your local electricity supplier. Following installation, live parts and live insulated wiring must not be accessible using a finger test in accordance with EN
60335/DIN VDE 0700.
Information on the electrical connection can be found on the rating
plate on the right side of the inner edge of the dishwasher door. If the
appliance has a change-over switch, the additional instructions on the
change-over diagram in the mains connector box must be observed.
Prior to connecting ensure that the mains voltage and current rating at
the site of installation match the nominal voltage and current rating
given on the rating plate. The required fuse protection is also to be
found on the rating plate.
To isolate the dishwasher from the mains, remove the mains plug.
Important: The plug must still be accessible after the appliance has
been installed.
If the appliance is hard-wired to the mains supply, then it must be
safely isolated from the mains within the electrical installation with
switches intended to ensure all-pole(N,L1) disconnection, shall be
directly connected to the supply terminals and shall have a contact
separation (fuses, cut outs, current trips or similar) of at least 3mm in
each pole.
Installation and Connection Instructions
Connections
The water inlet and drain hoses, as well as the mains cable must be
connected beside the dishwasher as there is insufficient space behind
the appliance.
