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.
• Select the wash programme to suit the nature and degree of the soiling on the dishes.

Operating Instructions
Adjust the Water Softener
To prevent the build up of scale on dishes and in the dishwasher, the
dishes must be washed with soft, i.e. low lime content water. For this
reason the dishwasher is fitted with a water softener in which tap
water from a hardness of 4 °d (German degrees) 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 has 4 settings.

Adjust the water softener in accordance with the table to suit your area:
1. Open the door on the dishwasher.
2. Remove the lower rack from the
dishwasher.
3. Adjust the water hardness switch
with, e.g. a coin.
4. Replace the lower rack and close the
door of the dishwasher.
Operating Instructions
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 dishwasher salt:
– Prior to using the dishwasher for the first time
– When the SALT indicator 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.
0 1. Open the door, remove the lower
rack.

SA ALT Z
2. Undo the lid on the salt container by
S AL
S EL
turning it anticlockwise.
S
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
3
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 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 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.
11
Operating Instructions
Filling with Rinse Aid
Rinse aid is automatically added during the last rinse, ensuring thorough rinsing, spot and streak free drying.
1
Only use rinse aid specifically designed for domestic dishwashers. Never
fill the rinse aid container with any other substance as this would damage the appliance.
Fill with rinse aid:
– Prior to using the dishwasher for the first time
– When the window indicator has a dark centre surrounded by a light
ring. If there is sufficient rinse aid in the container, the indicator window is completely dark.
The rinse aid compartment is on the inside of the dishwasher door.
0 1. Open the door.
2. Press the rinse aid compartment
release button with your finger.
3. Fully open the rinse aid compartment
lid.
4. Fill with rinse aid exactly up to the
level marked “max”; this corresponds
to a quantity of approx. 140 ml.
5. Close the lid and press until it locks
into place.
6. Wipe up any spilt rinse aid with a
cloth. Otherwise too much foam will
be formed during the wash.
12
Operating Instructions
Adjusting Rinse Aid Dosing
3
As the dishes are washed rinse aid is released from the dispenser into
the wash water. The dose is factory set at 4, and can be adjusted from
1 to 6. Only change the setting if streaks, milky spots or dried on water
marks are visible on glasses or crockery.

Only use dishwasher detergent.
Fill with detergent:
– Prior to the start of a wash programme (not for the pre wash programme). 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.
The detergent compartment is on the
inside of the dishwasher door.
0 1. If the lid is closed:
press release button (1).
The lid springs open.
2
2. Fill the detergent dispenser with
detergent. The markings indicate the
dosing levels:
“20” corresponds to approx. 20 ml of
detergent,
“30” corresponds to approx. 30 ml of
detergent.
3. Close the lid and press until it locks
into place.

If the dishes are very heavily soiled
put additional detergent into the
adjacent chamber (2). This detergent
will take effect during the pre wash.
19
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.
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.

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.
• 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.
Free-Standing Appliances
1
• can be set up as stand-alone without additional installation.
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.
29
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:
– Unscrew the screws (1) from the
elbows on the back side.
– Slide the work surface approx.
1cm to the rear (3) , lift at the
front (4) and remove.
– Press the work surface retaining
brackets at the position shown in
the diagram (4) and remove the
bracket at an angle to the rear
(5).

• The dishwasher must also be screwed on tightly to the work surface
or to the adjoining units. This is absolutely necessary so that its stability is guaranteed according to VDE regulations.

If the dishwasher is later used as a free-standing appliance, the original
work surface must be re-mounted.

The plinth on free-standing appliances is not adjustable.
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 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 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

The water inlet hose must not be kinked, crushed or entangled when it
is being connected up.
Connect the threaded hose fitting (DIN 259) on the water inlet hose to
a tap with an external thread (¾ inch). Tighten the threaded hose fitting hand tight only.
• 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.
