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.
152985 56/1 en-es 30-11-1999 15:03 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.

152985 56/1 en-es 30-11-1999 15:03 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 0,5 l 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, French degrees and
PPM (parts per Million).
The softener should be adjusted according to the hardness of the water in
your area. Your local Water Authority can advise you on the hardness of the
water in your area.
The dishwasher is factory set at level 4.
If this level is not suitable for your area the softener should be adjusted.

If your water hardness is level 0 it is already soft and therefore there is
no need to use salt. With the setting of the water softener at level 0 the
salt indicator light on the control panel will always remain off.
To set a different level, proceed as follows:
1. Press the On/Off pushbutton.
2. Press the "small load" and "delay start" pushbuttons simultaneously for
about 5 seconds, in the display will appear L4 which corresponds to the
current level.
2. Press the "delay start" pushbutton as many times as necessary until the
required level appears in the display. The level increases by 1 each time
the pushbutton is pressed. 5 seconds after this pushbutton has last
been pressed the dishwasher memorises the level selected and returns to
the programme setting mode.

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.
To fill:
1. To fill with salt, unscrew the cap of
the salt container.
2. Pour 0,5 l of water inside the
container (this is necessary only
before filling with salt for the
first time).
LE
SA LT

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.
4. Replace the cap making sure that
there is no trace of salt on the
screw thread or on the gasket.
SR14
5. Screw on the cap tightly.
When this has been done, all that is required is to periodically top up the
container with salt.
You are reminded of this by the salt indicator light on the control panel
which will illuminate when the salt has finished.
14
152985 56/1 en-es 30-11-1999 15:04 Pagina 15
Important: The salt refill indicator light on the control panel can remain
illuminated for 2-6 hours after the salt has been replenished, assuring the
dishwasher remains on. If you are using salts that take longer to dissolve
then this can take longer. The function of the dishwasher is not affected.
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.

152985 56/1 en-es 30-11-1999 15:04 Pagina 18
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.
UI12
The two rear rows of prongs on the lower
basket can be easily lowered to allow tou to
load pots, pans and bowls.
To lower the prongs:
1. Slightly pull them upward and let them
drop down (see picture).
2. To bring them back to the standing
position, just pull them up again.
Warning!
Long bladed knives stored in an
upright position are a potentail
hazard. These items should only be
placed in the removable knife
basket. Take care when loading or
unloading sharp items such as
knives.
UI51
UI18
Removable knife basket
Long and/or sharp items of cutlery such as
carving knives must be placed horizontally
in the removable knife basket, which is
positioned at the left of the upper basket.

152985 56/1 en-es 30-11-1999 15:04 Pagina 19
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.
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.
To unload your dishwasher more easily, you can take the cutlery basket out
of the lower basket and unfold it. This makes it easier to remove small pieces
of cutlery.
Important note! To prevent the full cutlery basket from inadvertently
unfolding when being taken out, place your hand right round the two-piece
handle and hold it firmly.
1. Place the cutlery basket on a firm support (table, worktop) and unfold
both handle parts.
2. After unfolding, fold back both handle parts.

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
The cup-rack on the left folds upwards
to increase your loading flexibility.
US60
Arrange items on and underneath the
fold-down cup racks so that water can
reach all surfaces.
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.

152985 56/1 en-es 30-11-1999 15:04 Pagina 21
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:
A
1. Move the front runner stops (A) of
the upper basket outwards and
slide the basket out.
2. Refit the basket in the higher
position and replace
the stops (A) in their original
position.
RC01
Attention!
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.

152985 56/1 en-es 30-11-1999 15:04 Pagina 22
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 the required 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.
22
152985 56/1 en-es 30-11-1999 15:04 Pagina 23
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.
BIO programmes and compact powders
On the basis of their chemical composition, dishwasher detergents can be
classified into two groups:
- conventional, alkaline detergents with caustic components:
- low-alkaline compact powders with natural enzymes.
The enzymes in low-alkaline compact powders have a dirt-dissolving effect
and are also biodegradable. These enzymes deploy their full dirt-dissolving
power within a temperature range of 40-50°C. In BIO washing programmes,
the temperature range and duration of the heating phases are precisely
matched to the dirt-dissolving properties of the enzymes.
In combination with low-alkaline compact powders, BIO washing
programmes, at a temperature as low as 50°C, therefore achieve the same
cleaning results that would otherwise be achievable only with 65°C
programmes.
The lack of any caustic components in low-alkaline compact powders and
the lower cleaning temperature of BIO washing programmes not only relieve
the environment, but also care for your crockery.

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.
A programme underway is interrupted when you open the door.
- Close the door again. The programme will start again at the point it
was interrupted.
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.

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 filters
The filters in the base of the washing compartment are to large extent
self-cleaning. Nevertheless the filters should be checked and cleaned
from time to time. Dirty filters will degrade the washing result.
1. Open the door, remove the
lower basket.
2. The dishwasher filter system
comprises a coarse/fine filter,
microfilter and a flat filter.
Unlock the filter system
using a handle on the
microfilter, and remove.
3. Turn the handle about 1/4 a
turn anticlockwise and
remove.
MA15
4. Take hold of the coarse/fine
filter (1/2) by the handle with
the hole and remove from
the microfilter (3).
5. Clean all filters thoroughly
under running water.

from the base of the washing
compartment and clean both
faces thoroughly.
7. Put the flat filter back in the
base of the washing
compartment.

the microfilter and press
together.

protrude above the base of
the washing compartment.
Under no circumstances may the dishwasher be used without
filters.

Connecting the water supply
●
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!
Nevertheless we advise you a cold water supply. A hot water supply is not
always efficient with very soiled crockery as it shortens the washing
programmes.
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.
The water pressure must be within the limits given in the technical
specifications.
Your dishwasher has been built in accordance with the valid regulations
governing water-consuming appliances and is equipped with safety devices
which prevent used water from flowing back into the drinking water mains.

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.

protection system.
In cases of malfunction on the control panel will appear the flashing alarm
"AL4" (see "What do do, when...).
In this case turn off the water tap and call the Service Centre.
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.
