Dear customer
Please read these user instructions carefully. Please observe the
safety instructons on the first few pages of this instruction book.
Save these instructions and make sure they remain with the dishwasher if it is moved or sold, so that everyone using it through its
life can be properly informed on appliance use and safety.
The warning triangle and/or specific words (Warning!, Caution!,
Important!) are used to highlight instructions that are important for
your safety or for the function of the appliance. It is imperative that
these instructions are observed.
This symbol or numbered instructions lead you step by step through
the operation of the appliance.
Next to this symbol you receive additional information and practical
tips on using the appliance.
Tips and instructions for the economical and environmentally friendly
use of the appliance are marked with a clover leaf.
In the event of a malfunction, these operating instructions contain
information on how to rectify faults yourself, see the section ”What to
do if...”
If these instructions are insufficient, please contact your Service Centre.
This dishwasher has a new feature called ”IMPULSE WASHING”.
This washing system varies both the revolutions of the pump
and the water pressure for more intensive cleaning of the dishes
during the programme. That is why different sections of the programme cycle do not sounds the same.
Printed on paper manufactured with environmentally sound processes.

Safety information
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:
General safety
● 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.
● Additions or modifications to the dishwasher are not permitted for
safety reasons.
Before using the dishwasher for the first time
● Check the dishwasher for transport damage. Never connect a
damaged machine. In the case of damage, please contact your
retailer.
● For information on how to correctly install and connect up your

● 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 can also be found
on the rating plate.
Child safety
● Ensure that the plastic bags included in the packaging are kept
away from children who do not understand the dangers.
● Children may not recognise the dangers of improper use of electrical
appliances. You should therefore ensure proper supervision during
operation and not allow children to play with the 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.
● The water in your dishwasher is not suitable for drinking. If there are
still remnants of degergent in the appliance, there is a risk of burns.
Keep children well away from the dishwasher when its door is open.

● 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.
● When removing the electrical plug, grip the plug, not the lead.
●
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. Use only spare parts supplied by
these.
● 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.
● Do not put any solvents in the dishwasher. There is a risk of an
explosion!
● Do not sit or stand on the open door, the appliance may tip over.
●
Before using special dishwasher salt, detergent or rinse aid, make
sure that the manufacturer of these products expressly specifies
their use in domestic dishwashers.
● The water safety system protects against water damage. The following requirements must be fulfilled:
- The dishwasher must remain connected to the mains supply when
switched off.
- The dishwasher must be correctly installed.
- Always shut off the water supply whenever the dishwasher is left
unattended for an extended period.

General information
Economical and ecological dishwashing
●
Only connect the dishwasher to a cold water supply.
●
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 this instruction booklet and by the detergent manufacturer.
●
For washing in the dishwasher the following
are not suitable:
- wooden platters
- plastic items that are not heat resistant
- lead crystal glass
- pewter or copper items
- bonded cutlery items or dishes
- older cutlery with cement that is not temperature resistant
- cutlery with wooden, horn, china or mother of pearl handles
For washing in the dishwasher the following
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.
Make sure you always buy articles that are dishwasher safe.

Prior to using for the first time
Adjusting the water softener
To prevent the build up of lime on the dishes and in the dishwasher, the
dishes must be washed with soft water i.e. water with a low lime content.
This dishwasher is equipped with a water softener in which tap water from
a hardness of 4°d (german degree) is softened with the aid of special salt.
Adjust the water softener according to the table below for the water
hardness level for your area. Contact your local Water Authority to find
the exact water hardness level for your area.
The water softener has 5 settings:
Water hardness
°d 1)
> 24
18 - 24
12 - 18
4 - 12
below 4
mmol/l 2)

Filling the rinse aid
Use of rinse aid will result in cleaner and faster drying of the load, since it
helps water and soil to run off. Too much rinse aid may result in streakiness,
too little may cause white spots.
Caution!
Only use rinse aid specifically designed for domestic dishwashers. Never fill
the rinse aid dispenser with any other substance (e.g. vinegar concentrate
or dishwasher detergent) as this would damage the appliance.
The rinse aid dispenser is on the inside of the dishwasher door.
1. Open the lid to the dispenser by
pressing the lid catch towards the
compartment and lift the lid.
2. Fill up with rinse aid; do not overfill.
The dispenser will hold approx. 150 ml.
3. Wipe off any spillage carefully to
prevent excessive foaming during
the next wash programme.
4. Close the lid and press until it locks
again.
Fill with rinse aid:
When the indicator light
on the control panel is lit.
Switching the rinse aid dispenser off
If dishwasher detergent with rinse aid is used, you can switch off
the rinse aid dispenser and the lamp that indicates that the rinse aid
dispenser is empty.
The dishwasher must be switched off.
1. Press in the On/Off button.
2. Press the combination buttons simultaneously and hold them pressed in. When the first three programme indicator lamps starts to
flash, you can let go of the buttons.
3. Press the rinse aid button once. The lamp for the rinse aid button
starts to flash and the lamp for the end of programme is lit.
Press the button once more and the lamp for the ended programme
cycle goes out. Now the function for the rinse aid dispenser is off
and the control lamp is out.
4. Press out the On/Off button to complete the setting.
To reset the function, follow steps 1 and 2 above and then press
the rinse aid button twice, until the lamp for the ended programme
cycle is lit again.

Instruction book
Adjusting rinse aid dosing
The dispenser holds about 150 ml. This is enough for approx. 60 wash
cycles, depending on the dosage setting. Adjust the dosage setting
according to the hardness of the water.
You can set the dosage between 1 - 6, equivalent to 1 - 6 ml rinse aid.
Factory setting is 1. Begin at the lowest dosage setting and increase if
necessary by turning the setting arrow with e.g. the handle of a spoon.
Filling with detergent
Caution!
Only use detergents specially designed for dishwashers.
The detergent is released into the wash water during the programme.
Please observe the manufacturer’s dosing and storage recommendations
as stated on the detergent packaging. Remember that the instructions
usually refer to full-size dishwashers, for example when using detergent
tablets, it is sufficient to use just half a tablet.
1. Open the lid to the dispenser by pressing
the lid catch towards the compartment.
2. Filling with detergent.
Pre-wash detergent is poured into the
smaller compartment to the left when
needed.
3. Close the lid.
Detergent tablets
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
normal programmes with pre-wash when using detergent tablets.

Loading the dishes
●
Always place glasses, cups and bowls upside down.
Incline deep dishes (soup plates etc.) so that the water can run off
when drying.
● Make sure that the dishes do not rest against each other. This is
particularly important in regard to the cutlery basket - nested spoons,
etc. simply cannot be properly washed. The water must get at all the
soiled surfaces.
● Make sure that cutlery with slender handles and other items do not
protrude through the openings in the basket and prevent the spray
arm from rotating.
● Never put silver and stainless steel objects together. When these
metals come into contact with each other a chemical reaction occurs
which stains the silver.
● When washing delicate items, select the programme with the lower
wash temperature.
●
●
Substances such as ketchup containing strong colouring agents can
cause temporary discolouration to the interior of the dishwasher.
Caution!
Do not place sharp knives with their points upwards. It is much safer
to lay them horizontally in the main basket.
If required, the top and the handle to the cutlery basket are removable.

Care and cleaning
Machine
Clean the outside surfaces of the appliance using a mild (non-abrasive)
household cleaning product. Finish by removing remaining traces of
the product with a damp cloth.
Caution!
Do not use cleaning products which contain alcohol (spirits), thinners
and similar substances.
Spray arm (1)
It is important to keep all the holes in the spray arm clear. A clogged
hole can seriously affect washing efficiency. If the spray arm needs
cleaning, unscrew the nut anti-clockwise, remove the washer and lift
off the spray arm. Clear the holes and shake out any food remnants.
Coarse filter/microfilter (2)
The purpose of the coarse filter is to catch large objects such as
toothpicks and pieces of eggshell. Make sure that the filter is always
clean. Turn the coarse filter anti-clockwise. Lift it out and rinse it
under running water whenever necessary.
Fine filter (3)
It is just as important to keep this filter clean. A dirty or clogged filter
will always impair washing efficiency. The fine filter can easily be lifted
out for cleaning when you have removed the coarse filter.

Water inlet
The dishwasher is equipped with safety features which are to
prevent the water from going back to the fresh water system.
These features are according to current water technical safety
regulations.
The dishwasher must be connected to a cold water supply and the pressure should be between 80-1000 kPa (0,8 - 10 bar).
It is important to have a tap or stopcock,
positioned close to the dishwasher and with
easy access. Special mixer taps with dishwasher connections are available, as well
as adaptors for older mixer taps. Connect
the inlet hose to a tap with a 3/4" pipe thread.
The inlet hose must not be joined onto any
form of extension hose. If it is too short, the
entire hose must be replaced with a longer
highpressure hose, specially designed for
the purpose. The end of the hose, which is
connected to the dishwasher can be turned
in any direction. Loosen the retaining nut,
turn the hose, then retighten the nut.
Check that the nut is tight before the
machine is moved into position.
Use only the inlet hose supplied to
the dishwasher, do not reuse the old
inlet hose.

Water drainage
To protect the dishwasher against water damage it is equipped
with a water safety system. In the event of a fault the drainpump
starts automatically and the remaining water inside the dishwasher
is pumped out.
The water safety system also works when the dishwasher is switched off.
However the dishwasher must be connected electrically.
The discharge hose must not at any
point be higher up than 75 cm over
the surface which the dishwasher is
standing on. If it runs higher, operation
of the dishwasher might be impaired.
The hose should always be routed
at the level which the dishwasher is
standing on, rising up only where it
meets the waste pipe. It is also
important to ensure that the inside
diameter of the hose is not less than
13 mm at any point.
