Prior to Using for the First Time
3
If you wish to use 3 in 1 detergent:
– First read the section “Using 3in1 detergents”.
– Do not fill up with special salt or rinse aid.
If you do not use 3in1 detergent, before using for the first time
1. Set the water softener
2. Fill up with dishwasher salt
3. Fill up with rinse aid
Setting the Water Softener
3
The water softener must be set manually and electronically:
To avoid scale deposits on the dishes and in the dishwasher, the dishes
must be washed with soft water, i.e. water with a low lime content. The
water softener must be set according to the table to the water hardness in the area where you live. Your local water company will be able
to give you information about the water hardness in your area.
The dishwasher must be switched off.
3
Setting manually:
1. Open the dishwasher door.
2. Remove the lower basket from the
dishwasher.
3. Turn water hardness dial on the left
wall of the dishwasher interior to O
or 1 (see table).
Setting electronically:
1. Press the ON/OFF button.
If the LED indicator of only one programme button is illuminated, this
wash programme has been activated. The wash programme must be
deselected:
Press function buttons 2 and 3 simultaneously for approx. 2 seconds.
The LED indicators of all the programme buttons that can be selected
will illuminate.
2. Press function buttons 2 and 3 simultaneously and hold them down.
The LED indicators for function buttons 1 to 3 will flash.
7
3. Press function button 1.
The LED indicator for function button 1 will flash.
The LED indicator for the end of the dishwashing cycle will flash simultaneously:
– The number of times that the LED indicator for the end of the dishwashing cycle flashes corresponds to the hardness setting.
– This sequence of flashes is repeated several times, with a 3 second
pause in-between.
4. Pressing function button 1 increases the hardness setting by 1 degree.
(Exception: hardness setting 1 follows hardness setting 10).
5. When the hardness setting is correct, press the ON/OFF button.
The hardness setting is now saved.

Adding dishwasher Salt
3
3
To decalcify the water softener, it must be filled up with dishwasher
salt. Use only special salt suitable for domestic dishwashers.
If you do not use 3 in1 detergent, fill up with dishwasher salt:
– Before using the dishwasher for the first time.
– When the control indicator for dishwasher salt is illuminated on the
control panel.
1. Open the door and remove the lower basket.
2. Unscrew the lid on the salt dispenser by turning it anti-clockwise.
3. Only when using the dishwasher
for the first time:
Fill the salt dispenser with water.
4. Place the funnel (supplied) over the
dispenser opening.
Fill the dispenser with dishwasher
salt; the capacity of the dispenser is
approx. 1.0-1.5 kg, depending on
the size of the grains. Do not overfill
the dispenser.
If water overflows when filling up with dishwasher salt, this is completely harmless.
5. Clean away any salt remnants from the dispenser opening.
6. Screw the lid back on in a clockwise direction.
7. Run a dishwashing cycle after filling the salt dispenser with dishwasher salt. This will wash away salt water and salt crystals that have
been spilt.
Depending on the size of the salt granules, it can take several hours for
the salt to dissolve in the water and for the control indicator for dishwasher salt to go out.
9
Filling Up with Rinse Aid
Rinse aid causes the rinse water to flow easily from the crockery leaving gleaming dishes and glassware.
If you do not use 3in1 detergent, fill up with rinse aid:
– Before using the dishwasher for the first time.
– When the control indicator for rinse aid is illuminated on the control
panel.
Use only special rinse aid for dishwashers.
1. Open the door.
The rinse aid compartment is located on the inside of the dishwasher
door.
2. Press the release button on the rinse
aid compartment.
3. Open the cover.
4. Pour rinse aid in slowly right up to
the broken “max” line;
this corresponds to a volume of approx. 140 ml when full.
5. Press the lid shut until it clicks into
place.
6. Wipe up any spilt rinse aid with a
cloth. Otherwise there will be too
much foam when rinsing.
10
Setting the Amount of Rinse Aid Required
3
Only change the amount dispensed, if smears, milky spots (reduce the
amount) or dried on water spots (increase the amount) can be seen on
glasses and dishes. (See section “If dishwashing results are not satisfactory”.) The dosage can be set from 1-6. The dosage is pre-set to “4” in
the factory.
1. Open the dishwasher door.
2. Press the release button on the rinse
aid compartment.
3. Open the cover.
4. Set the dosage level.
5. Press the lid shut until it clicks into
place.
6. If rinse aid has leaked out, wipe it
away with a cloth.
11
Activating rinse aid inflow when 3in1 function is selected
3
3
If the 3in1 function is not selected, the rinse aid inflow is always activated.
If the 3in1 function is selected due to the use of 3in1 detergent, the
rinse aid inflow is deactivated. If the dishes then do not dry sufficiently,
you should re-activate the rinse aid inflow (see also section “Using 3in1
detergents”).
1. Press the ON/OFF button.
If the LED indicator of only one programme button is illuminated, this
wash programme has been activated. The wash programme must be
deselected:
Press function buttons 2 and 3 simultaneously for approx. 2 seconds.
The LED indicators of all the programme buttons that can be selected
will illuminate.
2. Press function buttons 2 and 3 simultaneously and hold them down.
The LED indicators for function buttons 1 to 3 will flash.
3. Press function button 2.
The LED indicator for function button 2 will flash.
The indicator for the end of the dishwashing cycle will display the current setting:
Indicator for the end of the cycle is lit:
Rinse aid inflow activated when 3in1 on
Indicator for the end of the cycle is not lit:
Rinse aid inflow deactivated when 3in1
on (factory setting)
4. Pressing function button 2 activates and deactivates the rinse aid dispensing function.
5. When the rinse aid inflow setting is correct, press the ON/OFF button.
The setting for the rinse aid inflow is now saved.
12
In daily use
Loading cutlery and dishes
1
Sponges, cleaning cloths and any other objects that can absorb water
must not be washed in the dishwasher. Plastic and Teflon-coated dishes
and pans tend to retain water droplets. These dishes and pans therefore
do not dry as well as those made of china and stainless steel.
For washing in the dishwasher, the following cutlery/dishes/pots and pans
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 cement
that is sensitive to temperature
• Dishes or cutlery with glued
parts
• Pewter or copper items
• Lead crystal glass
• Steel items that rust
• Wooden boards/platters
• Items made from synthetic materials
• Only wash stoneware in the dishwasher if it is
specifically marked by the manufacturer as
being dishwasher-safe.
• Glazed patterns may fade if washed very frequently in the dishwasher.
• Silver and aluminium parts have a tendency to
discolour during washing. Food remains, e.g.
egg white, egg yolk and mustard often cause
discoloration and staining on silver. Therefore
always clean food residues from silver immediately, if it is not to be washed straight after
use.
• Glass can become dull after a large number of
washes.
• Before loading the dishes, you should:
– Remove the worst of the food residues.
– Soak pans with burnt-on food residues.
• When loading the dishes and cutlery, please note:
– Dishes and cutlery must not impede the rotation of the spray arms.
– Load bowls, cups, glasses, pans, etc. with the opening downwards so
that water cannot collect in them
– Dishes and items of cutlery must not lie inside one another or cover
one another
– To avoid damage to glasses, they must not touch one another
– Don’t put small items (e.g. lids) in the baskets for the dishes, but in
the cutlery basket, so that they can’t fall through the holes.
13
Loading cutlery
1
Warning: Sharp knives and other items of cutlery with sharp edges
must be laid in the cutlery rack or in the upper basket to avoid the risk
of injury.
To ensure that all items of cutlery in the cutlery basket can be reached
by the water, you should:
1.Place the grid insert on the cut- 2.Place forks and spoons in the
lery basket
cutlery basket's grid insert with
their handles pointing downwards.
For larger utensils, such as whisks, leave off one half of the cutlery grid.
Pots, Pans, Large Plates
Load larger and heavily soiled dishes
and pans in the lower basket.
(Max. diameter for plates 29 cm).
14
To make it easier to load larger dishes, the two plate racks on the right
in the lower basket can be folded
down.
Cups, Glasses, Coffee Service
Load smaller, fragile crockery and
long, sharp cutlery in the upper basket.
• Arrange items of crockery on and
under the folding cup racks so
that they are offset from each
other and water can reach all
items.
• The cup racks can be folded up
out of the way for tall crockery
items.
• Lay or hang wine and brandy
glasses in the slots in the cup
racks.
15
Adding Detergent
1
Detergents remove the dirt from
dishes and cutlery.
The detergent must be added before
the cycle starts.
Only use detergent intended for domestic dishwashers.
The detergent compartment is located on the inside of the door.
1. If the lid is closed:
Press the release button.
The lid will spring open.
3
16
2. Place the detergent in the detergent
dispenser. The markings indicate the
dosing levels for powder detergents:
“20/30” corresponds to approx.
20/30 ml of detergent.
Follow the manufacturer’s instructions with regard to dosing and
storage.
3. Close the lid and press until it locks
into place.
In the case of very heavily soiled
dishes, fill the adjoining compartment (1) with additional detergent.
This detergent comes into use during the pre-wash cycle.
Concentrated detergents
2
Today’s detergents for dishwashers are almost exclusively low-alkaline
concentrated detergents with natural enzymes in tablet or powder
form.
Using 50°C dishwashing cycles in conjunction with these concentrated
detergents reduces pollution and is good for your dishes, as these dishwashing cycles are specially matched to the dirt-dissolving properties
of the enzymes in concentrated detergents. It is for this reason that using 50 °C dishwashing cycles in conjunction with concentrated detergents can achieve the same cleaning results that can otherwise only be
achieved using 65 °C cycles.
Detergent tablets
3
Detergent tablets from different manufacturers dissolve at different
rates. For this reason, some detergent tablets do not attain their full
cleaning power during short cycles. Therefore please use dishwashing
cycles with pre-wash when using detergent tablets.
17
Using 3in1 detergents
3
3
These products are detergents with a combined cleaning, rinsing and
salt function.
When the 3in1 function is activated,
– the addition of special salt and rinse aid from the respective dispenser
is prevented.
– If the salt and rinse aid dispensers are empty, this is not indicated.
– The dishwashing cycles can be up to 30 minutes longer.
If you want to use 3in1 detergents, check whether these detergents are
suitable for your water hardness. (Follow the manufacturer’s instructions.)
If you want to use 3in1 products
1. Press the ON/OFF button.
2. Press the 3 IN 1 button.
The button indicator lights up: 3in1 function is selected.
Before the start of the dishwashing cycle put 3in1 detergent in the detergent dispenser.
As the rinse aid inflow is automatically switched off when the 3in1
function is activated, it may come about because of the different quality standards in the 3in1 detergent, that the dishes do not dry sufficiently.
If this happens, proceed as follows (see section “Adding rinse aid”):
• Fill up the dispenser (if this is empty) with rinse aid.
• Set rinse aid dosage to “2” mechanically.
• Activate rinse aid inflow.
If you do not want to use 3in1 products any more
If you want to stop using 3in1 products, please do the following:
• Deactivate the 3in1 function.
• Fill up the dispensers for salt and rinse aid again.
• Switch the water softener to the highest setting and perform up to
three normal cycles without loading any dishes.
• Then set the water softener to the water hardness in your area.
If you want to use 4in1 products
When using "4 in 1" detergents that integrate also anti- glass corrosion
agent into "3 in 1" formula, please follow the same indication as given
for "3 in 1" detergents.

Installation and connection instructions
1 Safety Information for the Installation
• Only transport the dishwasher in an upright position, otherwise salt
water may run out.
• Before using the dishwasher for the first time, check for any damage
caused in transport. Do not under any circumstances connect an appliance that is damaged. In the case of damage, please contact your
supplier.
• Never use the dishwasher if the mains cable, water inlet or drain hose
are damaged; or if the control panel, work top or plinth area are
damaged such that the inside of the appliance is freely accessible.
• Always plug the mains plug into a correctly installed shockproof
socket.
• Permanent connection: a permanent connection must only be installed by a trained electrician.
• Prior to using the appliance for the first time, ensure that the rated
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.
• Multi-way plugs / connectors and extension cables must not be used.
This could constitute a fire hazard through overheating.
• The dishwasher’s cable must only be replaced by a Service Force Engineer.
• A water inlet hose with safety valve must only be replaced by a Service Force Engineer.
33
Installing the Dishwasher
• The dishwasher must be installed on a firm floor and adjusted to ensure that it is stable and level in all directions.
• To compensate for unevenness in
the floor and to match the height
of the appliance to that of surrounding units, extend the threaded feet using a screwdriver.
• The drain hose, inlet hose and
mains cable must be laid so that
they are able to move freely within
the plinth area, and so that they
are not kinked or crushed when the
dishwasher is in position.
• The dishwasher must also be
screwed tightly to the work surface
or to the adjoining units. This is essential to ensure the dishwasher
does not tip up.
34
Free-standing appliances
1
If the dishwasher is installed directly next to a cooker, a heat-insulating, non-flammable panel (laminated with aluminium foil on the side
next to the cooker) must be fitted flush with the top edge of the work
surface (depth 57.5 cm).
If the appliance is built-in under a
kitchen work surface, the worktop
supplied with the dishwasher can be
removed in the following way:
1. Unscrew the screws from the elbows
at the rear (1).
2. Push the appliance’s worktop backwards about 1 cm (2).
3. Lift the worktop at the front (3) and
remove it.
1
3
If the dishwasher is later used as a free-standing appliance, the work
surface supplied with it must be re-mounted.
The plinth on free-standing appliances is not adjustable.
35
Connecting the dishwasher
Connecting to the water supply
• 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 plumber if the water pressure is less than 1 bar.
Highest permitted water pressure:
10 bar (=100 N/cm2 =1 MPa)
If the water pressure is greater than 10
bar, a pressure reduction valve must be
used (available from your dealer).
Connecting the inlet hose
1
3
36
The water inlet hose must not be kinked, crushed or entangled when it
is being connected.
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 fitted
with either a plastic or a metal nut:
– Only tighten the nut hand tight.
Then do a visual check for water tightness. (Make sure that the tap is
not dripping.)
So that access to the tap in the kitchen is not restricted by the use of
the dishwasher, we recommend installing an additional tap, or fitting a
T-branch to the existing tap.
If you need a longer water inlet hose than that supplied, the following
VDE-approved complete hose sets are to be used. These are available
from your local service centre.
Water drainage
1
Drain hose
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 bottom edge of the appliance.
Extension hoses
• Extension hoses are available from
your local Service Force Centre. To
ensure that the function of the appliance is not impeded, the internal
diameter of extension hoses must
be 19 mm.
• Extension hoses must not be laid
more than a maximum distance of
4 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 types. The outer diameter of the sink outlet connection
must be at least 15 mm.
• The drain hose must be fixed to the sink outlet connection using the
hose clamp supplied.
Water drainage if the dishwasher is built-in at high level
If the dishwasher is installed at a high level, and the drain hose connection is less than 30 cm from the lower edge of the appliance, adapter
kit ET 111099520 must be fitted by your local Service Force Centre.
Water drainage into sink (only possible with free-standing appliances)
If you wish to hang the drain hose over the edge of a sink, use a detachable hose elbow. You can obtain this from Service Force by referring to spare part number ET 646 069 190.
1. Fit the elbow to the drain hose.
37
2. Secure the drain hose so that it cannot slide off the edge of the sink.
Pass a piece of cord through the hose elbow and fix it to the wall or the
tap.
Anti-flood system
For protection from water damage, the dishwasher is equipped with a
anti-flood 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. In this way water can neither escape nor overflow.
The remaining water in the appliance is automatically pumped out.
Electrical Connection
1
Any electrical work required to install this appliance should be carried out by a qualified electrician or competent person.
WARNING - This appliance must be earthed.
The manufacturer declines any responsibility should these safety
measures not be observed.
Before switching on make sure the electricity supply voltage is the
same as that indicated on the appliance 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.
Changing a fuse
The appliance is supplied with a 13amp plug fitted. In the event of having to change the fuse in the plug supplied, a 13amp ASTA approved
(BS 1363A) fuse must be used.
