If you do not use 3in1 detergent, before using for the first time
1. Set the water softener
2. Fill up with special salt for water softeners
3. Fill up with rinse aid
Setting the water softener
The water softener must be set manually and electronically:
To avoid scale deposits on the dishes and in the dishwasher, the dishes must be
washed with soft water, i.e. water with a low lime content. The water softener
must be set according to the table to the water hardness in the area where you
live. Your local water company will be able to give you information about the
water hardness in your area.
The dishwasher must be switched off.
Setting manually:
1. Open the dishwasher door.
2. Remove the lower basket from the
3. Turn water hardness dial on the left wall of
the dishwasher interior to 1 or 2 (see table).
Setting electronically:
1. Press the ON/OFF button.

Prior to using for the first time
Adding special salt
To decalcify the water softener, it must be filled up with special salt. Use only
special salt suitable for domestic dishwashers.
If you do not use 3 in1 detergent, fill up with special salt:
– Before using the dishwasher for the first time.
– When the control indicator for special salt is illuminated on the control panel.
Open the door and remove the lower
Screw open the lid on the salt dispenser by
turning it anticlockwise.
Only when using the dishwasher for the
first time:
Fill the salt dispenser with water.
Place the funnel (supplied) over the dis
penser opening.
Fill the dispenser with special salt; the ca
pacity of the dispenser is approx. 1.01.5
kg, depending on the size of the grains. Do
not overfill the dispenser.
If water overflows when filling up with special salt, this is completely harmless.
5. Clean away any salt remnants from the dispenser opening.
6. Screw the lid back on in a clockwise direction.
7. Run a dishwashing cycle after filling the salt dispenser with special salt.
This will wash away salt water and salt crystals that have been spilt.
Depending on the size of the salt grains, it can take several hours for the salt to
dissolve in the water and for the control indicator for special salt to go out.
Prior to using for the first time
Filling up with rinse aid
With rinse aid the rinsing water drains away better and so you get smearfree,
gleaming dishes and clear glasses.
If you do not use 3in1 detergent, fill up with rinse aid:
– Before using the dishwasher for the first time.
– When the control indicator for rinse aid is illuminated on the control panel.
Use only special rinse aid for dishwashers
and no other liquid detergents.
1. Open the door.
The rinse aid compartment is located on
the inside of the dishwasher door.
2. Press the release button on the rinse aid
3. Open the cover.
4. Pour rinse aid in slowly right up to the bro
ken “max” line;
this corresponds to a volume of approx.
140 ml when full.
5. Press the lid shut until it clicks into place.
6. Wipe up any spilt rinse aid with a cloth.
Otherwise there will be too much foam
when rinsing.
Prior to using for the first time
Setting the amount of rinse aid required
Only change the amount dispensed, if smears, milky spots (reduce the amount)
or dried on water spots (increase the amount) can be seen on glasses and dishes.
(See section “If dishwashing results are not satisfactory”.) The dosage can be set
from 16. The dosage is preset to “4” in the factory.
Open the dishwasher door.
Press the release button on the rinse aid
Open the cover.
Set the dosage level.
Press the lid shut until it clicks into place.
If rinse aid has leaked out, wipe it away
with a cloth.
Prior to using for the first time
Activating rinse aid inflow when 3in1 function is selected
If the 3in1 function is not selected, the rinse aid inflow is always activated.
If the 3in1 function is selected due to the use of 3in1 detergent, the rinse aid in
flow is deactivated. If the dishes then do not dry sufficiently, you should reacti
vate the rinse aid inflow (see also section “Using 3in1 detergents”).
1. Press the ON/OFF button.
If the only LED indicator illuminated is one that belongs to a programme button,
this means that this dishwashing cycle has been activated. The dishwashing cy
cle must be deselected:
Press function buttons 2 and 3 simultaneously for approx. 2 seconds.
The LED indicators of all the programme buttons that can be selected light up.
2. Press function buttons 2 and 3 simultaneously and keep them pressed.

Loading cutlery and dishes
Sponges, cleaning cloths and any other objects that can absorb water must not
be washed in the dishwasher. Plastic and Tefloncoated dishes and pans tend to
retain water droplets. These dishes and pans therefore do not dry as well as
those made of china and stainless steel.
For washing in the dishwasher, the following cutlery/dishes/pots and pans
are not suitable:

• Before loading the dishes, you should:
– Remove the worst of the food residues.
– Soak pans with burnton food residues.
• When loading the dishes and cutlery, please note:
– Dishes and cutlery must not impede the rotation of the spray arms.
– Load bowls, cups, glasses, pans, etc. with the opening downwards so that
water cannot collect in them
– Dishes and items of cutlery must not lie inside one another or cover one an
– To avoid damage to glasses, they must not touch one another
– Don’t put small items (e.g. lids) in the baskets for the dishes, but in the cut
lery basket, so that they can’t fall through the holes.
In daily use
Loading cutlery
Warning: Sharp knives and other items of cutlery with sharp edges must be laid
in the cutlery rack or in the upper basket to avoid the risk of injury.
To ensure that all items of cutlery in the cutlery basket can be reached by the
water, you should:
1.Place the grid insert on the cutlery 2.Place forks and spoons in the cutlery
basket's grid insert with their han
dles pointing downwards.
For larger utensils, such as whisks, leave off one half of the cutlery grid.
Pots, Pans, Large Plates
Load larger and heavily soiled dishes and
pans in the lower basket.
(Max. diameter for plates 29 cm).
In daily use
To make it easier to load larger dishes, the
two plate rests on the right in the lower
basket can be folded down.
Cups, Glasses, Coffee Service
Load smaller, fragile crockery and long,
sharp cutlery in the upper basket.
• Arrange items of crockery on and under
the folding cup racks so that they are
offset from each other and water can
reach all items.
• The cup racks can be folded up out of the
way for tall crockery items.
• Lay or hang wine and brandy glasses in
the slots in the cup racks.

In the case of very heavily soiled dishes, fill
the adjoining compartment (1) with addi
tional detergent. This detergent comes into
use during the prewash cycle.
In daily use
Concentrated detergents
Today’s detergents for dishwashers are almost exclusively lowalkaline concen
trated detergents with natural enzymes in tablet or powder form.
Using 50°C dishwashing cycles in conjunction with these concentrated deter
gents reduces pollution and is good for your dishes, as these dishwashing cycles
are specially matched to the dirtdissolving properties of the enzymes in con
centrated detergents. It is for this reason that using 50 °C dishwashing cycles in
conjunction with concentrated detergents can achieve the same cleaning results
that can otherwise only be achieved using 65 °C cycles.
Detergent tablets
Detergent tablets from different manufacturers dissolve at different rates. For
this reason, some detergent tablets do not attain their full cleaning power dur
ing short cycles. Therefore please use dishwashing cycles with prewash when
using detergent tablets.
Using 3in1 detergents
These products are detergents with a combined cleaning, rinsing and salt func
When the 3in1 function is activated,

– If the salt and rinse aid dispensers are empty, this is not indicated.
– The dishwashing cycles can be up to 30 minutes longer.
If you want to use 3in1 detergents, check whether these detergents are suitable
for your water hardness. (Follow manufacturer’s instructions!)
If your water hardness is higher than that recommended by the manufacturer
but you would nevertheless like to use 3in1 detergent, proceed as follows:
• With the 3in1 function selected, set the water softener one hardness setting
lower than when rinsing without 3in1 detergent.
• Fill up the dispenser (if this is empty) with special salt.
The dishwasher remembers the two different settings of the degree of hardness
for rinsing with and without 3in1 function.
In daily use
Activation/deactivation of the 3 in 1 function
Press simultaneously the two buttons positioned over the writing 3 in 1, until
the "3 in 1 function "indicator light illuminates. This means that the function is
To deactivate the function press the same buttons again until the indicator light
corresponding to the "3 in 1" symbol turns off.
As the rinse aid inflow is automatically switched off when the 3in1 function is
activated, it may come about because of the different quality standards in the
3in1 detergent, that the dishes do not dry sufficiently.
If this happens, proceed as follows (see section “Adding rinse aid”):
• Fill up the dispenser (if this is empty) with rinse aid.
• Set rinse aid dosage to “2” mechanically.
• Activate rinse aid inflow.
If you do not want to use 3in1 products any more
If you want to stop using 3in1 products, please do the following:
• Deactivate the 3in1 function.
• Fill up the dispensers for salt and rinse aid again.
• Switch the water softener to the highest setting and perform up to three nor
mal cycles without loading any dishes.
• Then set the water softener to the water hardness in your area.

1) The consumption values were obtained under standardised conditions. They depend on how full the bas
kets for the dishes are. Variations are therefore possible in practice.
2) When using this cycle the degree of water clouding determines the amount of soiling on the dishes. The
length of the cycle and water and energy consumption can vary greatly – depending upon the load and
how dirty the dishes are. Depending upon the soiling, the temperature of the water will be automatically
adjusted to between 50°C and 65°C.
3) When using this cycle, only load the dishwasher half full.
4) During the final rinse, the temperature is increased to 68° for 10 minutes to sanitize e.g. babies’ bottles,

damaged; or if the control panel, work top or plinth area are damaged such
that the inside of the appliance is freely accessible.
• Always plug the mains plug into a correctly installed shockproof socket.

front of the appliance (see installation template).
• The drain hose, inlet hose and mains cable must be laid so that they are able to
move freely within the plinth area, and so that they are not kinked or crushed

Guarantee/Customer Service
Guarantee/Customer Service
Our appliances are produced with the greatest of care. However, a defect may still occur. Our consumer serv
ices department will repair this upon request, either during or after the guarantee period. The service life of
the appliance will not, however, be reduced as a result.
This declaration of guarantee terms is based on European Union Directive 99/44/EC and the provisions of the
Civil Code. The statutory rights that the consumer has under this legislation are not affected by this declara
tion of guarantee terms.
This declaration does not affect the vendor's statutory warranty to the end user. The appliance is guaranteed
within the context of and in adherence with the following terms:
1. In accordance with provisions laid down in paragraphs 2 to 15, we will remedy free of charge any defect that
occurs within 24 months from the date the appliance is delivered to the first end user.
These guarantee terms do not apply in the event of use for professional or equivalent purposes.
2. Performing the guarantee means that the appliance is returned to the condition it was in before the defect oc
curred. Defective parts are replaced or repaired. Parts replaced free of charge become our property.
3. So as to avoid more severe damage, the defect must be brought to our attention immediately.
4. Applying the guarantee is subject to the consumer providing proof of purchase showing the purchase and/or
delivery date.
5. The guarantee will not apply if damage caused to delicate parts, such as glass (vitreous ceramic), synthetic ma
terials and rubber, is the result of inappropriate use.
6. The guarantee cannot be called on for minor faults that do not affect the value or the overall reliability of the
7. The statutory warranty does not apply when defects are caused by:
• a chemical or electrochemical reaction caused by water,
• abnormal environmental conditions in general,
• unsuitable operating conditions,
• contact with harsh substances.
8. The guarantee does not apply to defects due to transport which have occurred outside of our responsibility.
Nor will the guarantee cover those caused by inadequate installation or assembly, lack of maintenance or fail
ure to respect the assembly instructions or directions for use.
9. Defects that result from repairs or measures carried out by people who are not qualified or expert or defects
that result from the addition of nonoriginal accessories or spare parts are not covered by the guarantee.
10. Appliances that are easy to transport may be delivered or sent to the consumer services department. Home re
pairs are only anticipated for bulky appliances or builtin appliances.
11. If the appliances are builtin, builtunder, fixed or suspended in such a way that removing and replacing them
in the place where they are fitted takes more than half an hour, the costs that result therefrom will be charged
for. Connected damage caused by these removal and replacement operations will be the responsibility of the
12. If, during the guarantee period, repairing the same defect repeatedly is not conclusive, or if the repair costs are
considered disproportionate, in agreement with the consumer, the defective appliance may be replaced with
another appliance of the same value.
In this event, we reserve the right to ask for a financial contribution calculated according to the length of time
it has been used.
13. A repair under guarantee does not mean that the normal guarantee period will be extended nor that a new
guarantee period begins.
14. We give a twelve month guarantee for repairs, limited to the same defect.
15. Except in the event where liability is legally imposed, this declaration of guarantee terms excludes any com
pensation for damage outside the appliance for which the consumer wishes to assert his rights. In the event of
legally admitted liability, compensation will not exceed the purchase price paid for the appliance.
These guarantee terms are only valid for appliances purchased and used in Belgium. For exported appliances,
the user must first make sure that they satisfy the technical conditions (e.g.: voltage, frequency, installation in
structions, type of gas, etc.) for the country concerned and that they can withstand the local climatic and en
vironmental conditions. For appliances purchased abroad, the user must first ensure that they meet the
Guarantee/Customer Service
qualifications required in Belgium. Nonessential or requested adjustments are not covered by the guarantee
and are not possible in all cases.
Our consumer services department is always at your disposal, even after the guarantee period has expired.
