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 changed 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.
7
Operating Instructions
2
Economical and Ecological Dishwashing
• Ensure that the water softener is correctly adjusted.
• Do not pre-rinse dishes under running water.
• If 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.
• The dishwasher's interior light is always switched on as long as the
door of the appliance is open. To save energy you should therefore
always close the door of the dishwasher after loading or removing
dishes.

Operating Instructions
Prior to using for the first time
Prior to using for the first time, remove all the clips with which the dish
racks are secured for transport.
Then perform the following steps:
0 1. Adjust the water softener
2. Fill with Salt for the Water Softener
3. Fill with Rinse Aid
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 degree) 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.
Adjust the water softener to the setting given in the table that corresponds to the hardness of the water in the area where you live. The
water softener can be adjusted in 10 steps.

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 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 salt.
0 1. Open the door, remove the lower
rack.

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 special salt will leak into
the wash water. Dull glasses may result.
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.
13
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 specially 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 RINSE AID indicator on the control panel is illuminated.

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.
AUTO 65° and AUTO BIO 50° Wash Programmes
During the AUTOMATIC programmes, the amount of soiling on the
dishes is determined by the amount of clouding of the water. If the
dishes are heavily soiled, they are pre-washed and two rinses also performed. If the dishes are only lightly soiled, the dishes are not prewashed and only one rinse is performed.
This ensures the dishes receive the best wash cycle and conserves electricity and water.

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; this is because the dishes are
washed more intensely for short periods during certain stages of the wash programme to improve
cleaning.
The consumption figures were measured under standard conditions. They are intended as a guide
only as variations can occur during normal usage.

from the appliance, as hot dishes can be sensitive to knocks.
• The dishes will dry quicker if, when the programme has finished, you
briefly open the door fully and then leave it slightly ajar, when the
programme has finished.
• 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.
• Empty the lower rack first, then the upper rack. In this way you will
avoid any water left on the upper rack dripping onto the dishes in the
lower rack and causing water spots.

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. Depending on the design of 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 be laid such that
they are free to move in the rear of the plinth recess, so that they
cannot be kinked or crushed.
• 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.
36
Installation and Connection Instructions
• Depending on type, the dishwasher is to be installed as follows:

Installation and Connection Instructions
Leak Prevention System
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. It is thus
not possible for water to either leak or overflow. Any water left in the
appliance is automatically pumped out.
1
The AQUA CONTROL SYSTEM also works when the appliance is switched
off – the appliance must however not be disconnected from the mains.
When the appliance is switched on, a buzzing tone can also be heard.
