Before washing for the
first time
Loading the dishwasher
Program key
Economic dishwashing
Some dishwashers include program keys in different languages.
Attach the program key in the desired language to the top of the
door.
Run programs only with a full load
Wait to run a program until the dishwasher is full. This way you
save energy. Use the Rinse program to rinse the dishes if there
are any unpleasant odours while you wait for the dishwasher to
become fully loaded.
Run programs at a lower temperature
If the dishes are only slightly dirty, you can select a program with
a low temperature.
Checking water hardness
Contact the local water utility to check the water hardness in your
area. This is important with regard to how much detergent and
rinse aid to use.
Top up with rinse aid
By using rinse aid you will improve your drying result. You will
also achieve a better dishwashing result with glassware and
dishes.
1 Open the rinse aid compartment lid.
2 Carefully top up with rinse aid. Only add rinse aid to the level
marked max.
3 Wipe up any splashes of rinse aid around the compartment.
4 Close the lid firmly.
Select a program with the option Drying: Short
To save energy, use Drying: Short. The drying result will be better
if, once the program is finished, you leave the door slightly open.
Do not rinse under running water
Simply scrape off large food particles before loading the dishwasher.
Choose a green detergent
Read the environmental declaration on the packaging!
Connect to cold water...
If you use oil or electricity to heat your home.
Connect to hot water (max. 70 °C)...
If you use district heating, solar power or geothermal power to
heat your home. Choosing a hot water connection cuts program
times and reduces the dishwasher's electricity consumption.
Fragile dishes
Some cookware is not dishwasher safe. This can be for several
reasons. Some materials cannot withstand strong heat, others
can be damaged by dishwashing detergent.
Fragile decoration
Porcelain with decoration on top of the glazing (the items feel
rough) should not be washed in a dishwasher.
Refill rinse aid indicator
When the rinse aid needs topping up, the above symbol lights
on the display.
NOTE!
After topping up, it may take a while before the symbol goes
out.
Setting the rinse aid dosage
The section Settings describes how to set the rinse aid dosage.
Rinse aid dispensing can be set from
(Off) to
(High
dose). (Factory settings:
)
Increase the rinse aid dosage:
• If the dishes have water marks.
Decrease the rinse aid dosage:
• If the dishes have a sticky white/blue film.
• If the dishes are streaked.
• Build-up of foam. If you have very soft water, the rinse aid can
be diluted 50:50 with water.
For water with a hardness greater than 10–12 °dH, you ought to
use rinse aid with citric acid (known as acid rinse aid).
4
Crystal/Glass
Place items so that they do not touch each other during the wash.
Use a short program with the lowest possible wash temperature.
Select Drying: Short. Delicate and very fragile items should not
be washed in a dishwasher.
Glassware washed in a dishwasher at high temperatures can
gradually develop a grey film that cannot be removed. Wash fine
glassware at a low temperature and with a small amount of detergent.
Silver
Silver and stainless steel items should not come into contact, as
the silver can become discoloured.
Cutlery with glued handles
Some types of glue are not dishwasher safe. In such cases, the
handles may loosen.
Wood
Wooden items should only be washed in a dishwasher if marked
dishwasher safe.
Aluminium
Aluminium can lose its shine if washed in a dishwasher. However,
good quality aluminium pans can be washed in a dishwasher,
even if some of the shine will be lost.
Plastic items
Avoid washing plastic items that cannot withstand high temperatures.
Your machine is equipped with a turbo drying function (Turbo
Drying Express+™), which improves the drying of plastic objects
and other items.
NOTE!
Plastic items should not be placed in the circled area of the
lower basket as they can be damaged by the heat.
Upper basket
Place glasses, cups, bowls, side plates and saucers in the upper
basket. All dirty surfaces should face inwards and downwards!
Wine glasses are placed on the wine glass shelf and knives are
placed in the knife stand on the right (if fitted).
The dishwasher's baskets
The dishwasher is equipped with a top cutlery tray, an upper
basket, a middle basket and a lower basket with cutlery basket.
The appearance of the baskets may differ depending on the
dishwasher setup.
Top cutlery tray
The top cutlery tray has space for cutlery, ladles, whisks, serving
cutlery and similar items.

lower basket, half the foldable tines can be lowered for washing
stoneware or a deep pan, for example.
Vase and bottle holder
Middle basket
The middle basket's wire basket with spray pipes is suitable for
low objects. The middle basket's utensils basket has space for
ladles, whisks, serving cutlery and similar items.
Wire basket
Wine glass shelf
Utensils basket
Washing larger items
The two baskets in the middle basket can be removed, or the
entire middle basket can be removed to create more space between the upper and lower baskets if larger items are being
washed.
Lower basket
Place plates, side plates, serving dishes, pots and cutlery (in the
cutlery basket) in the lower basket.
Place pots and pans in the rear right part of the lower basket to
achieve the best dishwashing results from the rear of the two
spray nozzles (WideSpray™), which are intended for these types
of dishes.
Washing large plates
Move the foldable tines and their mounts to widen the distance
between the tine rows to adapt the lower basket to plates with a
diameter greater than 25 cm.
Cutlery basket
Place cutlery with the handles facing down, except for knives,
and spread them out as much as possible. Ensure that spoons
do not stack inside each other.
The cutlery basket is best placed in the middle at the front of the
lower basket to best utilise dishwashing performance from the
unique spray nozzle (Power Zone Cutlery™), which is intended
for the cutlery basket.
WARNING!
Knives and other pointed items must be placed with the points
down in the cutlery basket or horizontally in other baskets.
Fold-down section for small items

1 Prewash detergent compartment
2 Main wash detergent compartment
Detergent is added according to water hardness.
Follow the instructions on the detergent packaging.
Too much detergent can result in less effective dishwashing and
also entails greater environmental impact.
NOTE!
Check that the spray arms can rotate freely.
Add the detergent to the detergent compartment. There is a
compartment for the prewash and one for the main wash. If
powder and liquid dishwasher detergents are used, add a small
amount of the detergent to the prewash compartment. Contact
the detergent manufacturer if you have any questions about the
detergent.
WARNING!
Children must be supervised – dishwasher detergent is corrosive!
NOTE!
Use only dishwasher detergent! Washing up liquid must not
be used as the foam that forms prevents the dishwasher from
operating effectively.
Dishwasher tablets
Halve the tablet if it is difficult to close the dispenser lid. There is
a risk that the detergent will not be released properly if the lid is
tight and will not open correctly.
NOTE!
Dishwasher tablets are not recommended for short programs
(less than 75 minutes). Use powder or liquid dishwasher detergent instead.
3–in–1/All-in-one detergent
Read through the directions for these products carefully. If anything is unclear, contact the detergent manufacturer.

water consumption and temperature accordingly. When newly
installed, the program needs to be run five times before it is fully
adapted and can provide the best results.
Time program
The program adapts to the specified running time or finish time.
With this program it is important to choose a time suited to how
dirty the dishes are.
0:15-0:45 Slightly dirty dishes
1:00-1:30 Normally dirty dishes
2:00-2:30 Very dirty dishes
Heavy wash

dirty, such as coffee cups.
Plastic wash
A program intended for washing plastic items that are dishwasher
safe. This program has an extra long drying cycle. Porcelain and
glasses can also be washed.
Delicate wash
If the dishes are not very dirty, you can select Delicate wash. This
program is intended for glasses and porcelain that have just been
used and as such do not require such a powerful program.
This program can be used for delicate dishes. Select Drying:
Short if you want to be especially cautious. See also the section
Fragile dishes in Chapter Loading the dishwasher.
Lower half wash
You can use this program when you only want to wash plates
and cutlery in the lower basket. Slightly dirty dishes can also be

dishwasher. To save energy, select Drying: Short.
This option can be selected in the following programs: Heavy
wash, Daily wash, Eco wash, Normal, Quick wash, Lower half
wash, Upper half wash, Hygiene wash.
Set time (Time program)
You can choose a program time between 15 minutes and 2 hours
30 minutes.
Time saver: On/Off
This option shortens the program time, but uses more energy
and water.

wash, Upper half wash, Lower half wash.
Delayed start: 1-24 hours
When you select Delayed start, the dishwasher will start 1–24
hours after you press the Start/Stop button.

NOTE!
If the dishwasher is turned off using
the main power switch or due to a
power failure
If the machine does not start within 2 minutes of the last button
press, the display returns to showing the last program run.
If the dishwashing program was not finished, the interrupted
program continues when power is restored.
Time remaining
Once you have selected a program and options, the display indicates how long the program took the last time it was used.
NOTE!
During drying, the program is interrupted if the power is cut or
the door is open for more than 2 minutes.
This may differ somewhat from time to time depending on the
temperature of the water supply, the amount of dishes, the ambient temperature and other factors.
NOTE!
During the first run of each program, the remaining time displayed can be slightly misleading, as the dishwasher is estimating the time. When you run the program a second time, the
dishwasher will calculate the remaining time based on the
previous duration of the program.

It is important that you read through and follow the instructions
and directions below. Conduct installation and connection in
accordance with the separate installation instructions.
Safety instructions
• Connections to electricity, water and drainage must be performed by a qualified professional.
• Always follow applicable regulations for water, drainage and
electricity.
• Take care during installation! Wear protective gloves! There
must always be two people!
• Before screwing the dishwasher into place, test the dishwasher
by running the Rinse program. Check that the dishwasher fills
with water and drains. Check also that none of the connections
leak.
WARNING!
The ventilation opening in the lower part of the door must not
be blocked by a rug, carpet or similar furnishing.
WARNING!
Turn off the water supply when installing the dishwasher!
WARNING!
The plug must be disconnected or power to the socket turned
off while the work is carried out!
Setup
• The dimensions and connection information are included in
the separate installation instructions. Check that all dimensions
and connections are correct before commencing the installa-
20
tion. Note that the height of the exterior panel can be adjusted
to match other fittings.
• Make sure the area on which the dishwasher is to be installed
is firm. Adjust the adjustable feet so that the dishwasher is
level. Tighten the lock nuts.
• Stronger door springs are available for purchase for dishwashers with a fitted wooden door. Springs are available for various
weights and sizes of wooden door. Door springs can be purchased from the retailer who sold you the dishwasher.
Drainage connection
See the separate installation instructions for all necessary information.
The drainage hose may be extended by a maximum of 3 m (the
total length of the drainage hose must not exceed 4.5 m). Any
joins and connecting pipes must have an internal diameter of at
least 14 mm. However, the drainage hose should ideally be replaced with a new hose without joins.
No part of the drainage hose may be more than 950 mm above
the bottom of the dishwasher. The hose must not be routed directly to a floor drain or the like. In such cases, the hose can act as
a siphon and empty the dishwasher.
The hose must always discharge at least 350 mm above the
bottom of the machine.
Ensure that the drainage hose has no kinks.
NOTE!
The hose must be attached at the same height as the underside
of the sink.
ASKO Service
Connection to water supply
Information about your product
Use only the supply hose provided with the dishwasher. Do not
re-use old hoses or other spare supply hoses.
There is a QR code on the compliance plate. Scan the code to
view information about your product.
The supply pipe must be fitted with a stopcock. The stopcock
must be easily accessible, so that the water can be shut off if the
dishwasher has to be moved.
Contact the service department
Once the installation is complete, the stopcock should be opened
to allow the pressure to settle for a while and to check that all
connections are tight.
Read the chapter Troubleshooting before contacting the service
department. Provide the details on the compliance plate in all
contact. Include the item number (1) and the serial number (2).
Connect to cold water...
If you use oil or electricity to heat your home.
QR code
Connect to hot water (max. 70 °C)...
If you use district heating, solar power or geothermal power to
heat your home. Choosing a hot water connection cuts program
times and reduces the dishwasher's electricity consumption.
