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:

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 3 in 1 detergents

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) During the final rinse, the temperature is increased to 68° for 10 minutes to sanitize e.g. plastic chopping
boards or jam jars.
3) 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 45°C and 70°C.

may run out.
• Before using the dishwasher for the first time, check for any damage caused in
transport. Do not under any circumstances connect an appliance that is dam
aged. In the case of damage, please contact your supplier.
• Never use the dishwasher if the mains cable, water inlet or drain hose are
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.
• Prior to using the appliance for the first time, ensure that the rated voltage
and type of supply on the rating plate match that of the supply where the ap

Installing the Dishwasher
• The dishwasher must be installed on a firm floor and adjusted to ensure that it
is stable and level in all directions.
• To compensate for unevenness in the floor and to match the height of the ap
pliance to that of surrounding units, extend the threaded feet using a screw
• Adjust the rear foot of the appliance using a cordless screwdriver from the
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
when the dishwasher is in position.
• The dishwasher must also be screwed tightly to the work surface or to the ad
joining units. This is essential to ensure the dishwasher does not tip up.
