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 retailer.
• Before installing the appliance, 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. Adaptors / connectors
and extension cables must not be used.
Child Safety
• This appliance is designed to be operated by adults. Children should
not be allowed to tamper with the controls or play with the product.
• Keep all packaging away from children.
• Keep all detergents in a safe place out of children’s reach.
• 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 an old appliance, cut off the power supply cable
and remove any door catches, to prevent young children being
trapped inside.
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 your local
AEG Service Force Centre.
5
Operating Instructions
• 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 Service Force) 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.
• 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.
• When finished loading or unloading, close the door as an open door
can be a hazard.
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.
• Only use detergents specifically designed for use in domestic 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.
• Do not sit or stand on the open door, the appliance may tip over.
6
Operating Instructions
• 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: remove the fuse.
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
When disposing of old appliances, remove the plug and ensure that any
locks or catches are removed to prevent young children becoming
trapped inside.
Use an authorised disposal site.
2
Economical and Ecological Dishwashing
• Ensure that the water softener is correctly adjusted.
• Do not pre-rinse dishes under running water.
• When you wash a small load, the load sensor calculates the amount
of water necessary and shortens the programme. It is more economical to always wash with a full load.
• 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 detergent manufacturer.

Operating Instructions
Prior to using for the first time
Prior to using for the first time, remove all the clips with which the
baskets are secured for transport.
Then perform the following steps:
0 1. Adjust the water softener
2. Fill the water softener with water and special salt
3. Fill the rinse aid dispenser with rinse aid
3
Special salt and rinse aid must not be added if you use 3-in-1 detergent
tablets.
Adjust the water softener
To prevent the build up of limescale on dishes and in the dishwasher,
the dishes must be washed with soft water, i.e. water with a low lime
content. For this reason the dishwasher is fitted with a water softener
in which tap water from a hardness of 4 °d (German degree) 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 can be set manually using the water hardness
switch; it can also be set electronically using the buttons on the control
panel.

Operating Instructions
Filling with Salt for the Water Softener
1
Use only salt designed for dishwashers. Never fill the salt container
with any another type of salt (e.g. culinary salt) or dishwasher detergent as this would irreparably damage the water softener.
Prior to filling with salt, please check each time that you really do have
a packet of dishwasher salt in your hand.
Fill with dishwasher salt:
– Prior to using the dishwasher for the first time
– When the SALT indicator J on the control panel is illuminated.
If the water hardness in your area is less than 4 °d, you do not need to
use dishwasher salt. The SALT indicator J on the control panel will
remain illuminated.
0 1. Open the door, remove the lower
basket.

3. 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 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 salt.
3
12
3
The water expelled by filling the salt container with 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 dishwasher 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.
3
Depending on the size of the salt grains, it can take several hours for
the salt to dissolve in the water and the special salt indicator J to
extinguish. The setting of the water softener and the consumption of
salt are dependent on the hardness of the local water.
Operating Instructions
Rinse aid
Rinse aid ensures thorough rinsing, spot and streak free drying of
dishes and glassware.
Rinse aid can be added in one of two ways:
• If you use the dishwasher detergent and rinse aid separately, add the
rinse aid to the rinse aid container.
If you opt for this method, please note that
– the rinse aid container must never be empty.
– the amount of rinse aid dispensed must be set.
• If you use dishwasher detergent which already contains rinse aid, add
this to the detergent compartment.
If you opt for this method, please note that
– the rinse aid container must be empty in order to avoid dispensing
too much rinse aid.
– You can switch off the H control indicator. Otherwise, the H
control indicator would stay on permanently owing to the empty
container.
1
Only use rinse aid specifically designed for domestic dishwashers. Never
fill the rinse aid container with dishwasher detergent or any other substance (e.g. vinegar essence) as this would damage the appliance.

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).

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
24
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.

Installation and Connection Instructions
INSTALLATION AND CONNECTION
INSTRUCTIONS
Installing the Dishwasher
• The dishwasher must be installed on a firm floor and adjusted such
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 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 be laid such that
they are free to move in the rear of the plinth recess, so that they
cannot be kinked or crushed.
Built-Under Dishwasher
(see enclosed installation instructions)
Free-Standing Appliances
can be set up as stand-alone without additional installation.
1
34
If the dishwasher is set up next to a gas or coal cooker, a heatinsulating, non-flammable plate must be mounted between the
dishwasher and the cooker, flush to the top edge of the work surface
(depth 57.5 cm). The plate should have aluminium foil on the side facing the cooker.
Installation and Connection Instructions
If the dishwasher is installed underneath a kitchen work surface, the
original work surface of the dishwasher is to be removed as follows:
0 1. Unscrew the screws from the positioning plates on the back (1).
2. Slide the appliance's work surface
approx. 1 cm to the rear (2).
3. Lift the work surface at the front (3)
and remove.
1
If the dishwasher is later used as a free-standing appliance, the original
work surface must be re-mounted.
3
The plinth on free-standing appliances is not adjustable.
35
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 must be connected to a cold water supply.
• 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
36
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.
• Do not use, for connection, old hoses which have been used for
another appliance.
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
Please take care when installing the water inlet hose:
– The distance between the bottom
edge of the safety value and the
floor on which the dishwasher is
standing must be at least 30 cm:
– 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 your local
Service Force Centre.
– Place the water inlet hose in such a way that it is never higher than
the bottom edge of the safety valve.
