The indicator lamp on the control panel lights up when RINSE AID NEEDS TO BE
dark: OK.
Only use rinse aids recommended for use in domestic dishwashers. Immediately wipe away any rinse aid spilt accidentally. This prevents the formation of excess suds which can cause a fault function of the appliance.
If there are streaks: reduce the dosage by turning the dial to a lower setting (1-3). If crockery is not perfectly dry: increase the dosage by turning the dial to a higher setting (5-6). Plastic dishes have more difficulty drying and a higher rinse aid
setting will not improve the situation.
Detergents with rinse aid incorporated may be effective only with longer programmes. In the case of shorter programmes, detergent residue may be a problem (if necessary, use powder detergent). Detergents with rinse aid incorporated tend
to form excess suds.

Too little detergent; detergent too old or incorrectly
Temperature not high enough for heavily soiled crockery.
Loading of the dishwasher using lower and upper rack
at the same time with “Half load/Multizone” option.
- Arrange crockery so that items do not touch each other. Concave items (e.g. bowls, cups) must be
arranged facing downwards in the rack.
- If necessary, use more detergent, observing the manufacturer’s indications as regards dosage. Always store
detergent in a dry place and do not store it for excessively long periods of time.
- For heavily soiled crockery, select a wash programme with a higher temperature (see table of programmes on page 1).

What to do if...
Crockery and cutlery...
...salt indicator lit
...have deposits: regeneration salt residue
...are not dry
Possible causes...
Use tablets for soft water.
- Set “Detergent type” option; if this option is not available, it is normal for the salt indicator to light up.
Water too hard.
- In areas with very hard water, more regeneration salt needs to be added (see page 2 “How to set water
Salt reservoir cap open.
- Close the salt reservoir cap properly.
Not enough rinse aid.
- If you use a combined action detergent, try adding more rinse aid.
Plastic containers dry badly.
- Synthetic materials do not dry well; if wet at end of cycle, wipe dry.
Clean dishes left in dishwasher for a long time after end - In this situation, the presence of drops of water on dishes and on the sides of the dishwasher is normal. Try
of cycle (e.g. when using “delayed start” option).
releasing the door 5 minutes before removing the dishes.
Incorrect arrangement of the concave items in the rack. - Arrange crockery so that water does not collect in cavities.
Incorrect dosage the rinse aid.
- Increase the dosage of rinse aid - see page 3, “Adding rinse aid”.
Rapid programme selected.
- The rapid programme is intended for quickly washing lightly soiled dishes. If used for a full load of medium/
heavy soiled dishes, the dishes may not dry completely. If so, select a standard-length programme. For best
results, open the door after the end of the programme and wait 15 minutes before unloading the dishwasher.
Tomato/Carrot juice.
- Tomato sauce, for example, can lead to discolouring of plastic parts. Powder detergent is recommended as
it allows slightly higher doses to be used for improved whitening. Programmes with higher wash
temperatures should be used.
Dishes unsuitable for washing in dishwashers
- Only use dishwasher-proof crockery and dishes.
Usage of incorrect programmes for glasses.
- Dishes should be put together, to avoid touching each other. Do not put glassware together in baskets.
Use suitable programme for glass.
...glasses not sparkling
Not conform of glasses to washing in dishwashers
- Some kinds of glass cannot be washed in the dishwasher.
...permanent deposits on glasses
Rainbow effect.
...tea cups darken and dirt does not
disappear after washing in dishwasher
Not known.
- This phenomenon is inevitable. Theine alters colours permanently.
Pre-wash programme not used.
- Salty or acidic food residues can cause rust marks even on stainless steel cutlery. To avoid this, always use
the pre-wash programme if the dishes are to be washed later.
Rinse aid dosage too low.
- In the presence of marks, increase the rinse aid dosage (see page 3, “Adding rinse aid”). If you use a
combined action detergent, try adding more rinse aid.
Rinse aid dosage too high.
- In the presence of streaks, reduce the rinse aid dosage (see page 3, “Adding rinse aid”). If you use a
combined action detergent which includes rinse aid, do not add any additional rinse aid.
Unsuitable dosage of detergent/rinse aid.
- Only use the amount of detergent/rinse aid required, since excessive amounts can lead to excess suds.
...have discoloured plastic parts
...opaque glasses, etc
...removable deposits on glasses
...rust marks
...other marks
This phenomenon is irreversible. We recommend in future:
Change the control of system of dosage of softener.
Be careful – follow recommended detergent dosage.
For combined action tablets see detergent producer’s recommendations.

Disconnect the mains plug
What to do if...
If, after carrying out the above checks, the fault persists, disconnect the mains plug and turn off the water tap.
Contact the After-sales Service (see warranty).
Before contacting our After-Sales Service, take note of the following:
- the description of the fault,
- the appliance type and model,
- the service code (the number indicated on the adhesive rating plate) inside the door on the right-hand side:
Precautions and general recommendations
1. Packing
The packaging materials are 100% recyclable and marked with the recycling symbol
2. Removing the packaging and inspecting the contents
After unpacking, make sure that the dishwasher is undamaged and that the door closes correctly. If in doubt,
contact a qualified technician or your local retailer.
3. Before using the dishwasher for the first time
- The appliance is designed to operate at ambient temperatures of between 5°C and 45°C.
- This dishwasher has been tested by the manufacturer to ensure it functions correctly. Such testing may
leave slight drips/water marks which will disappear with the first wash.
4. Energy and water savings
- Do not rinse crockery under running water.
- Always fully load the dishwasher before running it or select the “Half load/Multizone” option (if available).
- If ecological energy sources are available such as solar panel heating, heat pumps or centralised heating
systems, the appliance may be connected to the hot water mains up to a maximum temperature of 60°C.
Make sure the water inlet hose is of the correct type (“70°C Max” or “90°C Max”).
5. Child safety
- Keep the packaging materials out of the reach of children.
- Children must not be allowed to play with the dishwasher.
- Store the detergent, rinse aid and salt out of the reach of children.
6. Safety warnings
