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 oprated 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
Adjust the Water Softener
To avoid the scale deposits on the dishes and in the dishwasher, the
dishes must be washed with soft, i.e. low lime content, water. The dishwasher therefore has a built-in water softener, in which tap water from
a hardness of 4 °d (German degree) is softened with the aid of special
salt.
3
0
You water supplier will be able to inform you on the hardness and
hardness range of the water in your area.
Adjust the water softener to the setting that corresponds to the hardness of the water in your area. The water softener can be adjusted in
10 steps.

Filling with 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, 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 salt:
– Prior to using the dishwasher for the first time
– When the SALT indicator on the control panel is illuminated.
3
If the water hardness in your area is less than 4 °d, you do not need to
use salt.
0 1. Open the door, remove the lower
rack.
2. Undo the lid on the salt container by
turning it anticlockwise.
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.

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. Dull glasses may result.
11
Operating Instructions
7. If you are not going to wash your dishes immediately, you should run
the PRE WASH programme. This will wash away salt water that has run
out of the container and any grains of salt 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 for the SALT indicator to extinguish.
The setting of the water softener and thus the consumption of salt are
dependent on the hardness of the local water.
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 sufficient rinse aid in
the container, the indicator window is uniformly dark.
The rinse aid container is on the inside of the dishwasher door.
0 1. Open the door
2. Turn the lid of the container
¼ of a turn anticlockwise and
remove.

3. Fill with rinse aid, up to the broken
line (maximum); this line corresponds
to a quantity of approx. 150 ml
4. Replace the lid and tighten by turning clockwise.
5. If rinse aid has been spilt, wipe up
with a cloth. Otherwise there will be
foaming during the washing.

Operating Instructions
Adjusting Rinse Aid Dosing
The dose should be adjusted according to the finish and drying results
obtained. The dose is factory set at 4, and can adjusted from 1 to 6.
Gradually increase the dose if there are drops of water or lime spots on
the dishes after washing. Reduce if it there are sticky whitish streaks on
the dishes.
0 1. Turn the lid of the container
¼ of a turn anticlockwise and
remove.
2. Adjust the dose setting with a tea
spoon.
3. Replace the lid and tighten by turning clockwise.

Operating Instructions
Bio Wash Programmes and Concentrated Detergents
Based on their chemical composition, dishwasher detergents can be
split into two basic types:
– Conventional, alkaline detergents with caustic components
– Weak alkaline concentrated detergents with natural enzymes.
2
The use of BIO wash programmes in conjunction with concentrated
detergents reduces pollution and is good for your dishes; the BIO wash
programmes are specially matched to the soil dissolving properties of
the enzymes in the concentrated detergent. It is for this reason that
BIO wash programmes can achieve the same results at 50 °C that can
otherwise only be achieved using 65 °C programmes.
During BIO programmes the water is briefly heated to 60 °C so that the
active oxygen becomes effective.
3
Detergent tablets from different manufacturers dissolve at different
rates. 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.
Detergent recommendations
For best results we recommend the use of Finish detergent, rinse aid
and salt.

During BIO programmes the wash water is briefly heated to 60 °C, so that the active oxygen can
become effective.
The various stages in the wash programme have different sounds because the dishes are washed
more intensely for short periods during certain stages of the wash programme to improve cleaning.
The consumption figures were recorded under standard conditions. They are intended as a guide
only as variations can occur during normal usage.

Operating Instructions
Interrupting the wash programme
(only in emergencies)
3
Interrupt a wash programme in progress only when it is absolutely
necessary to do so. For safety reasons the door of the dishwasher is
only unlocked at the end of the wash programme. Therefore, when the
programme is running, increased force is necessary to open the door to
overcome the locking mechanism. If the door is frequently opened
when a wash programme is in progress, the door lock is subject to additional wear.
In addition, when the appliance is closed again, the air that has entered
the appliance is heated and expands significantly. As result water may
penetrate into the base of the appliance and trigger the leak prevention system.
Hot steam may escape from the appliance when opening the door.
Open the door carefully.
0 1. Open the door of the dishwasher. Since the door is locked when the
wash programme is running, more force is needed to open the door.
2. Rectify the reason for opening the appliance.
3. Close the door, again more force than normal will be required. The
selected programme will then continue.
1
Load Sensing – Sensor Logic
If a wash programme is started even though there are only a few dishes
in the upper and/or lower rack, an intelligent electronic system adjusts
the amount of water and the duration of the wash programme to the
number of dishes. By this means it is possible to wash only a few dishes
quickly and economically. At half load (6 place settings), up to 2 litres
of water and 0.2 kWh of electricity are saved.
23
Operating Instructions
Switching Off the Dishwasher
At the end of the wash programme, the door of the dishwasher is
unlocked and a continuous tone sounds for 5 seconds.
Hot steam may escape from the appliance when opening the door
immediately after the end of the programme. Open the door carefully.
0 1. Open the door
2. Press the ON/OFF switch. The ON/OFF switch indicator extinguishes.
If the dishwasher is not switched off, the continuous tone sounds again
after 10 minutes.
1
Emptying the Dishwasher
3
• Hot dishes are sensitive to knocks. The dishes should therefore be
allowed to cool down before removing them from the appliance.
• The dishes will dry quicker if, when the programme has finished, you
briefly open the door fully and then leave it slightly ajar.
• 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.
• First empty the lower rack, and then the upper rack. By using this
procedure you will avoid any water that may be remaining in the
upper rack, dripping onto the dishes in the lower rack and leaving
water marks.
Care and Cleaning
1
24
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.
Operating Instructions
Cleaning the Filter
The filters in the base of the washing compartment are to a large
extent self-cleaning.
Nevertheless the filters should be
checked and cleaned from time to
time. Dirty filters will degrade the
washing result.
0 1. Open the door, remove the lower
rack.
2. The dishwasher filter system comprises a coarse/fine filter, microfilter
and a flat filter. Unlock the filter system using the handle on the microfilter, and remove.
3. Turn the handle about ¼ a turn anticlockwise and remove.
4. Take hold of the coarse/fine filter (1)
by the handle with the hole and
remove from the microfilter (2)
5. Clean all filters thoroughly under
running water.
6. Remove the flat filter (3) from the
base of the washing compartment
and clean both faces thoroughly
3
7. Put the flat filter back in the base of
the washing compartment
8. Place the coarse/fine filter in the
microfilter and press together.
9. Put the filter combination in place
and lock by turning the handle clockwise to the stop. During this process
ensure that the flat filter does not
protrude above the base of the washing compartment.

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

threaded feet use either
– an open-end spanner
or
– 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.
• In addition, the dishwasher must be firmly screwed to the work surface or to the neighbouring units. This is essential to ensure the dishwasher does not tip.

For protection from damage due to water leaks, the dishwasher is
equipped with a leak prevention system, the AQUA CONTROL SYSTEM.
In the event of a fault, the safety valve immediately interrupts the supply of water to the appliance and the drain pump switches on. By this
means water can neither escape nor overflow. The remaining water in
the appliance is automatically pumped out.
