The safety of AEG electrical appliances conforms to accepted rules of techno-
logy and the Appliance Safety Act. We as manufacturers, however, see ourselves
as being obliged to familiarise you with the following safety instructions.
Using your dishwasher for its intended purpose
О Only use your dishwasher for machine washing of household crockery. If your
° machine is misused or used for any purposes other than that for which it is
intended, the manufacturer cannot be held liable for any damage caused.
0 For safety reasons, you should not convert or modify your dishwasher in any
way. | |
Before using your dishwasher for the first time
[3 Check your dishwasher for any transport damage. Never connect a damaged
machine. If your dishwasher is damaged, you should contact your supplier.
Your dishwasher must be correctly installed and connected. Please read the
section on "Installation” to make sure you know all about this.
(I Before using your dishwasher for the first time, do not forget that the nominal
voltage and current type indicated on the rating plate of your machine must be
the same as the nominal voltage and current type at the installation site. The
necessary electrical fusing is also given on the rating plate.
Child safety
O Packaging parts (e.g. folls, styrene foam) may be dangerous for children, asit
could lead to suffocation! You should therefore keep all packaging well away
from children.
(I Children may not recognise the dangers of improper use of electrical appli-
ances. You should therefore ensure proper supervision during operation and
not allow your children to play with your dishwasher.
(3 Detergents may have a caustic effect on eyes, mouth, and throat and may even
cause suffocation! Keep all detergents in a safe place out of children’s reach.
0 The water in your dishwasher should not be used for drinking. Detergent
residues may still be present in your machine. Make sure you do not splash
these caustic residues onto your skin or suffocate yourself! Keep children well
away from your dishwasher when its door is open.

(J The water protection system ensures reliable protection against water damage,
though this implies the following conditions being fulfilled:
— Themains connection must be retained even when your dishwasher is switched
off. |
— Your dishwasher must be properly installed.
— Always turn off the water tap if your dishwasher is left unattended for any length
of time,
| 8 Never operate your dishwasher if the electrical supply lead, supply or drain
hose, control panel, worktop, or plinth are damaged.
| O In case of a fault, first turn off the water tap. Then switch off your machine and
pull the plug out of the plug socket. If there is a fixed connection, switch off or
unscrew the fuse(s).
D Never pull the plug out of the plug socket by the supply lead, but by the plug
0 Dishwasher repairs should only be performed by trained personnel. Improper
repairs may seriously endanger the user. If your dishwasher needs to be
repaired, you should contact our service centre or your retailer.
0 If the connection lead of your dishwasher is damaged, it must be replaced by
the special lead through your AEG-authorised service centre.
O Never place any solvents in your dishwasher, or you may cause an explosion!
0 Do not rest or sit on the open door, or you machine could tilt.
D The heating elements on the floor of the dishwasher remain hot for some time
after machine washing. Take care you do not scald yourselfl Do not touch the
heating elements.
D Before using special dishwasher salt, detergent, and rinse aid, make sure that
the manufacturer of these products expressly species their use in domestic
OThe high temperature in the immediate vicinity of the heating element may
deform or even melt plastic parts. Do not arrange any plastic parts in the lower
basket above the heating element.
O Always turn off the water tap when your dishwasher is left unattended for any
length of time, e.g. when you are away on holiday. -
O The dishwasher should only be transported upright. Any titting during trans-
port may lead to salt water flowing into the dishwasher, wiich could result in
Disposing of the packaging
Our dishwashers require effective protective packaging in transit, though we
always confine ourselves here to what | IS absolutely necessary
All used packaging materials are environmentally friendly and reusable.
The cardboard parts are produced from recycled paper, and the wood parts are
The plastics are marked as follows:
>PE< for polyethylene, e.g. packaging foils
>PS< for polystyrene, e.g. padding {basically CFC-free)
>POM< for polyoxymethylene, e.g. plastic clamps
By recycling and reuse of the packaging, raw materials can be saved and the
volume of refuse reduced.
Give the packaging for reuse to your local recycling centre. Your municipal or local
authority will give you its address.
Disposing of your old machine
When your machine needs replacing and you withdraw it from service, you 1 should
render it unserviceable before having it disposed of.
Marking of plastic parts for graded recycing:
All plastic parts in your machine are marked with internationally standardised
abbreviations (e.g. >PS«< far polystyrene). When your machine is disposed of, this
enables plastic waste to be sorted into individual types for. environmentally
conscious recycling. |
Take your decommissioned machine to your local recycling centre or dealer, who
will take it back from you for a small handling charge.
Operating your dishwasher economically and with regard
for the environment
Connect your dishwasher to the hot water supply if you have a modern hot water
system. For electrically heated installations, you are recommended to connect
your dishwasher to the cold water supply.
Do not pre-rinse your dishes under running water.
Collect your dirty dishes, stack them in the dishwasher, and only wash them when
both baskets are full, making sure that the latter are never overloaded. Only then
can you be sure that you are machine-washing economically and with regard for
the environment.
Always select the programme corresponding to the type of crockery and degree
of sailing (see “Programme chart”).
Never overdose detergent, special salt, and rinse aid. Follow the dosage recom-
mendations in these operating instructions as well as the instructions given by
manufacturers of these products.
Make sure that the water softener is correctly set.
Unsuitable crockery
Sponges, household cloths, and all objects which can become saturated with
water should not be cleaned in your dishwasher,
The following are unsuitable for machine washing:
— wooden boards or platters
— non-heat-resistant plastic parts
— lead crystal glass
— tin or copper items
— glued crockery or cutlery
— older types of cutlery with temperature- sensitive adhesive
— steel knives that are liable to rust
— cutlery with wood, horn, porcelain, and mother-of-pear handles.
Crockery that may be suitable for your dishwasher
‘The following items have certain machine washing limitations:
— Only wash earthenware crockery in your dishwasher if the manufacturer has
expressly indicated it as being suitable for that purpose.
— Some types of decoration which have been painted over the glaze may fade
after frequent machine washing.
— Silver and aluminium parts tend to discolour during machine washing.
- Many food residues, such as egg white, egg yolk, mustard, often cause
discolourations or staining on silver. Silver crockery and cutlery should there-
fore always be cleansed free from food residues if they are not washed imme-
diately after ameal. ”
— Some types of glass may become cloudy after many washing cycles. You should
therefore continue to hand-wash especially valuable glassware.
When buying new crockery and cutlery, confirm that they are dishwasher-safe.

Before using your r dishwasher for the first time
To ensure protection of the crockery baskets during transport, we have packed
them with clamps. Please remove all clamps before operating your dishwasher.
When your new dishwasher is correctly set up and installed, you must first make
| it ready for use.
Before using your dishwasher for the first time, proceed as follows:
— set the water softener;
— fil the special salt container with special salt; -
~ fill the rinse aid dispenser with rinse aid.
The following sections give you more detailed information on the individual points.
Setting the water softening system
Soft (low-lime) water is necessary for machine washing to avoid lime deposits on
crockery and in your dishwasher. Tap water with a hardness above 4 °d' (German
degree) must therefore be softened for machine washing.
For this purpose, your dishwasher is fitted with a water softener. The water softener
is treated (regenerated) automatically and at regular intervals with salt solution.
The salt consumption needed for regeneration thus depends on the local water
| hardness. Your competent water company will provide you with information about
water hardness in your locality.
To ensure optimum regeneration of the water softener:
— the water softening system must be set to the local water hardness;
— the dishwasher salt. container must always be filled with special salt.
To ensure minimum sait consumption with optimum washing results, your
dishwasher is fitted with an electronic hardness range setting with six possible

A Open the door, and take out the lower basket. |
O Set the hardness range switch, e.g. with a coin, as shown in the table to the
relevant water hardness in your locality. The arrow must then point to the
corresponding figure.
Filling with special dishwasher salt
- Important:
If the water hardness in your locality is below 4 °d, you need not fill I your dish-
washer with special salt.
Important note: a.
- Use only special dishwasher salt. Other types of salt (e.g. cooking salt) often
contain water-insoluble components which choke the water softener and may
render it unserviceable.
Salt and detergent packs often look very much alike. Detergent inadvertently
poured into the salt container will damage the water softener. Each time you fill it
with special salt, make sure you are really holding a salt pack in your hand.
0 Open the door, and take out the lower basket.
(3 Unscrew the cap of the salt container by tuming it anticlockwise.
Only when using your dishwasher for the first time: Fill the salt container
with around 0.5 litre of water.
O FIN the salt container with special salt. The container holds around 1.0-1 5 kg
depending on the salt grain size. Do not overfill the container.
Fig. 5 rer | =
О Clean the container opening so that no salt residues exist.
0 Screw the cap back on clockwise. The cap must be tightly closed, since sait
will otherwise find its way into the rinse water and may make your glasses
(If you do not wash your crockery immediately after filing with salt, run the
PRE-WASH programme tori rinse away any salt water and salt grains that have
been spilt.
Salt replenishment indicator
You must replenish special salt when the control panel shows the illuminated
message SALT. Depending on the grain size of the salt, it may be some hours
before the message SALT goes out again.
At water hardnesses below 4 °d, you need not fill your dishwasher with special
salt. In this case, the control panel continuously shows the illuminated message
SALT. This implies no loss of machine function.
Filling with rinse aid
The rinse aid ensures that the last rinse water flows off, leaving no drops, and
gives your crockery its final sparkle. During a washing programime, rinse aid is
automatically dispensed from the dispenser.
Important note:
- Usa only a branded rinse aid for domestic dishwashers. Other agents, e.g. vinegar
essence, may damage your machine and do not produce the desired effect.
Detergent (also liquid detergent) inadvertently poured into the dispenser will
damage your machine.
The rinse aid dispenser is locaied inside the door.
G Open the docr.
O Open the dispenser by twisting the cap ‘/4 revolution anticlockwise.
3 Fill with rinse aid max. up to the dotted line. The maximum capacity is around
150 ml.

I Then close the cap again by twisting it clockwise. —
3 Wipe off any spilt rinse aid with a cloth, otherwise too much foam will be
produced during washing.
Rinse aid replenishment indicator .
You must replenish rinse aid when the display window on the rinse aid dispenser
(Fig. 7/arrow) shows a dark spot surrounded by a bright ring @. When the rinse
aid dispenser is full, the display window appears uniformly dark.
Setting t the rinse e aid quantity te to > be dosed
The dispensing unit is located inside the filling opening of the rinse aid dispenser.
You can use it to set tha rinse aid quantity on a scale of 1-6 corresponding to a
1-6 cm?® rinse aid addition. The rinse aid dosage is factory-set to “4”. At this
setting, there is sufficient rinse aid in the full dispenser for around 40 washing pro-
gramimes. | |
You should adjust the amount dispensed if you discover imperfect crockery re-
sults (see the section on "If you think your dishwasher is not working property”).
(To set the dose, open the dispenser by twisting the cap ‘% revolution
anticlockwise (Fig. 6).
O Set the dose selector to the required position with a screwdriver.
O Then close the cap again by twisting it clockwise.
O Wipe off any spilt rinse aid with a cloth.
Filling with detergent
Important! Never use conventional washing-up liquids. The latter cause heavy
frothing, may even imply a loss of machine function, and the dishes will not be |
cleaned. Use only branded dishwasher detergent for domestic dishwashers.
Always store the detergent in a dry place in a sealed container. Lumpy detergent
will not clean dishes.
Before starting a washing programme (except "Pre- wash! ), vou must fill the
detergent dispenser with dishwasher detergent powder. The detergent is auto-
matically dispensed during the programme. ©

When washing heavily soiled crockery, you have the option of putting additional
detergent in the cap dispenser (Fig. 9/2). Fill the cap level. This detergent will be
already effective during Pre- wash.
BIO dishwashing programmes and low-alkaline compact
On the basis of their chemical composition, dishwasher. detergents can be
classified into two basic groups:
— conventional, alkaline detergents with caustic components;
— low-alkaline compact powders with natural enzymes.
The enzymes in low-alkaline compact powders have a dirt-dissolving effect and
are also more readily biodegradable. These enzymes deploy their full dirt dis- |
solving power within a temperature range of 40-55 °C. In BIO washing pro-
grammes, the temperature range and duration of the heating phases are precisely
.matched to the dirt-dissolving properties of the enzymes.
In combination with low-alkaline compact powders, BIO washing programmes,
at a temperature as low as 50 °C, therefore achieve the same cleaning results
that would otherwise bs achievable only with 65 °C programmes.
On BIO programmes, the wash water is briefly heated to 60 °C to activate the
active oxygen.
The lack of any caustic components in low-alkaline compact powders and the
lower cleaning temperature of BIO washing programmes not only relieve the
environment, but also cars for your crockery.
Detergent tablets
Detergent tablets of different manufacturers dissolve so slowly that they do not
release their full dishwashing power in short programmes (without pre-wash).
When using detergent tablets, you should therefore set normal programmes with
pre-wash wherever possible.
Before loading your machine with dishes:
— remove larger food residues that are not soluble in water, such as ©. g. fish-
bones, other bones, etc.;
= pans with burnt-on food residues should be pre-soaked in water.
Proper arrangement ensures perfect washing results.
Arrange all hollow containers, such as-cups, glasses, saucepans, etc., with the
| opening facing downwards.
Make sure that no water can collect in the recesses.
Basically arrange crockery and cutlery so that they do not lie inside each other
and each item has good contact with the washing water.
Glasses should not touch each other so that glass damage is avoided and no
stains are retained during drying. |
Make sure that small items cannot fall through. You are recommended to place
small objects (e.g. lids} in the cutlery basket. |
The easiest way to load the baskets is from back to front.
Important! Tall crockery or cutlery or that which projects downwards out of the
baskets may obstruct the spray arms. This will seriously impair the washing results.
Before starting a washing programme, check that the spray arms freely rc rotate,
Arrange the crockery around them as appropriate.
Lower basket
Large, heavily soiled dishes are bast cleansed in the lower basket.
Important note! The high temperature in the immediate vicinity of the heating
element may deform or even melt plastic parts. Therefore arrange plastic parts
in the upper basket.

next to à gas or electric cooker or coal range, you must interpose a thermally
insulated, non-flammable panel (with a depth of 57.5 cm) between cooker and
dishwasher. This panel should be coated with aluminium foil on the side facing
the cooker.
The original worktops o of free- standing machines are around 2 cm depth- -ad-
justable. This enables the worktop to be adjusted to adjacent applicances or

Important: The plinth of free-standing machines is not adjustable.
To match the dishwasher to the kitchen decor, free-standing machines can be
provided with a decor panel.
Decor panels matching the kitchen decor must be ordered from the Kitchen
manufacturers. A decor frame is needed for instaliation. If your free-standing
machine is not serially fitted with a decor frame, you can order this as a special
accessory from your specialist retailer.

Water supply
Your dishwasher has been built in accordance with the valid regulations govern-
ing water-consuming appliances and is equipped with safety devices which
prevent used water from flowing back into the drinking water mains. Your dish-
washer can be connected to either a cold or hot water supply of max. 60 °C.
Never connect your dishwasher to open hot water appliances and continuous
flow heaters!
The supply hose is fitted with a screwed hose connection {to DIN 258} and can
be connected to an outlet valve {water tap) with male thread (/4).
Suitable washers are supplied with the machine. Do not use any washers other
than these! |
The nut of the screwed hose connection can be tightened by hand. If you require
a supply hose which is longer than the one supplied, use only the VDE-approved
compiete hose kit (obtainable from our service centre) continuously and to
adequate length.
Never lengthen existing hoses.
Important note! The supply hose must not be kinked, squashed, or twisted.
Please ensure careful running.
To avoid reductions in water supply to the Kitchen, we recommend you to install
a separate tap. Failing this, fit a branch piece to the existing water tap.
Additional installation expenditure (on the building side) can be reduced by use
of conventional sink mixers with a connection and shutoff valve,
Minimum water pressure:
1 bar (10 N/cnr, 100 kPa).
If your water pressure is under 1 bar, please ask our service centre for advice.
Maximum allowable water pressure:
10 bar (100 N/em?, 1 MPa).
For a water pressure over 10 bar, a pressure-reducing valve (obtainable from your
specialist retailer) must be fitted upstream.
Water drainage
Drain hose connection:
maximum allowable height: 1 metre;
minimum necessary height of 30 cm over lower edge of machine.
For extension hoses, which may be laid horizontally to max. 3 m length, the
maximum allowable height of the drain hose connection is 85 cm.

important note! The drain hose must not be kinked, saueshod or twisted. Please
ensure careful running.
Sink trap connection
The hose connection (19 mm dia.) supplied with the dishwasher will fit all
commonty available makes of sink trap.
The unobstructed width of the sink trap connection should not be less than
15 mm.
The drain hose must be fastened to the sink trap connection with the hose clip
Water drainage into a sink
If you want to run the drain hose on a free-standing machine into a sink, you
should use an attachable hose bend. You can obtain this hose bend from your
AEG service centre under "spare part number ET 646 063 190. Fit the bend to
the drain hose.
Important notel Make sure that the drain hose does not slip off the edge of the
If you draw a string through the hole, you can also mount the bend on a wall and
thus prevent it from slipping off.
Extension hoses
Suitable extension hoses can be ordered from your specialist retailer and original
hoses from our service centre. The inside diameter of these extension hoses must |
be 18 mm to prevent any loss of machine function,
Water y protection system
To protect your dishwasher from water damage, it is equipped with a water pro-
tection system.
Apart from an overflow protection, which prevents uncontrolled rising of water in
the appliance, it also features an outiet protection (float switch in the floor tray).
This responds in the event of any untightness in the machine. |
In all cases of malfunction, the water supply is immediately interrupted and the
drain pump switched on. This prevents water from either flowing out or over-
flowing. Any residual water in the appliance is automatically pumped away. The
pump also operates. even if the machine is switched off and should not be dis-
connected from the electricity supply.
A fault is recognised by the fact that a pump noiss can be heard — even when the
machine is switched off.
O a fault occurs, first turn off the water tap. Then pull the plug out of the plug
socket. If there is a fixed connection, switch off or unscrew the fuse(s).
BA-1(1) GB/EU
Electrical connection
According to the technical connection conditions of the electricity companies, a
fixed connection to the mains supply may only be made by an approved electri-
cal installer.
Comply with the VDE specifications when connecting the machine and also where
necessary with the additional regulations of the local electricity companies. After
installation, live parts and insulated lines should not be accessible with the test
finger to EN 60335/DIN VDE 0700.
Details of the electrical connection are given on the rating plate. This is located
on the RH inside edge of the door. If the machine is convertible, the changeover
diagram directions given on the mains junction box must also be observed.
During appliance connection, it is essential to ensure that the nominal voltage and
current type specified on the rating plate are the same as the mains voltage and
current type at the installation site. The necessary electrical fusing is also indi-
cated on the rating plate.
To disconnect the dishwasher from the mains supply, pull out the plug. Should
the appliance have a fixed wiring connection with the mains supply, it must be
disconnected by appropriate measures on the fixed wiring side {fuses, auto-
matic cutout, spurious current protection switch, or the like which have a
contact opening width > 3 mmj.
Connection technology
Water supply, water drainage, and power supply connections must always be
planned from the side of the dishwasher. There is no room for them behind the
machine. |
The foliowing illustrations give typical examples of how the sanitary and electri-
cal installation can be performed under different circumstances.
These examples can only be recommendations, since the definitive factors are
| the circumstances at the installation site, existing connections, and any local
connection specifications or regulations of the power supply or water compa-
nies. | | |
