and cutlery with normal soil. (This is the standard programme for test institutes).
2) The appliance senses the degree of soil and the quantity of items in the baskets . It automatically adjusts the temperature and the quantity of water, the energy consumption and the programme duration.
3) With this programme you can wash a load with fresh soil. It gives good washing results in a short time.

6. SETTINGS
6.1 Programme selection
mode and user mode
When the appliance is in programme
selection mode it is possible to set a
programme and to enter the user mode.
In user mode, the following settings
can be changed:
• The level of the water softener
according to the water hardness.
• The activation or the deactivation of
the acoustic signal for end of
programme.
• The activation or deactivation of the
rinse aid empty notification.
• The activation or the deactivation of
AirDry.
When you activate the appliance, usually
it is in programme selection mode.
However, if this does not happen, you
can set the programme selection mode
in the following way:
Press and hold RESET until the appliance
is in programme selection mode.
6.2 The water softener
The water softener removes minerals
from the water supply, which would have
a detrimental effect on the washing
results and on the appliance.
The higher the content of these minerals,
the harder your water is. Water hardness
is measured in equivalent scales.
These settings will be saved until you
change them again.
How to set the programme
selection mode
The appliance is in programme selection
mode when the display shows the
programme number P1.
The water softener should be adjusted
according to the hardness of the water in
your area. Your local water authority can
advise you on the hardness of the water
in your area. It is important to set the
right level of the water softener to assure
good washing results.

10. HINTS AND TIPS
10.1 General
The following hints will ensure optimal
cleaning and drying results in daily use
and also help to protect the
environment.
• Remove larger residues of food from
the dishes into the waste bin.
• Do not pre-rinse dishes by hand.
When needed, use the prewash
programme (if available) or select a
programme with a prewash phase.
• Always use the whole space of the
baskets.
• When loading the appliance, make
sure that the dishes can be
completely reached and washed by
the water released from the spray arm
nozzles. Make sure that items do not
touch or cover each other.
• You can use dishwasher detergent,
rinse aid and salt separately or you
can use the multi-tablets (e.g. ''3in1'',
''4in1'', ''All in 1''). Follow the
instructions written on the packaging.
• Select the programme according to
the type of load and degree of soil.
With the ECO programme you have
the most efficient use of water and
energy consumption for crockery and
cutlery with normal soil.
10.2 Using salt, rinse aid and
detergent
• Only use salt, rinse aid and detergent
for dishwasher. Other products can
cause damage to the appliance.
• In areas with hard and very hard water
we recommend to use plain
dishwasher detergent (powder, gel,
tablets containing no additional
agents), rinse aid and salt separately
for optimal cleaning and drying
results.
• At least once a month run the
appliance with the use of appliance
ENGLISH
cleaner which is particularly suitable
for this purpose.
• Detergent tablets do not fully dissolve
with short programmes. To prevent
detergent residues on the tableware,
we recommend that you use the
tablets with long programmes.
• Do not use more than the correct
quantity of detergent. Refer to the
instructions on the detergent
packaging.
10.3 What to do if you want to
stop using multi-tablets
Before you start to use separately
detergent, salt and rinse aid do the
following procedure.
15
• Put hollow items (cups, glasses and
pans) with the opening down.
• Make sure that cutlery and dishes do
not bond together. Mix spoons with
other cutlery.
• Make sure that glasses do not touch
other glasses.
• Put small items in the cutlery basket.
• Put light items in the upper basket.
Make sure that the items do not
move.
• Make sure that the spray arm can
move freely before you start a
programme.
10.5 Before starting a
programme
1. Set the highest level of the water
softener.
2. Make sure that the salt and rinse aid
containers are full.
3. Start the shortest programme with a
rinsing phase. Do not add detergent
and do not load the baskets.
4. When the programme is completed,
adjust the water softener according
to the water hardness in your area.
5. Adjust the released quantity of rinse
aid.
6. Activate the rinse aid empty
notification.
Make sure that:
10.4 Loading the baskets
10.6 Unloading the baskets
• Only use the appliance to wash items
