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.

What to do if...
Disconnect the mains plug
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.
