Preparation
If the hardness level of the supply water
is above 90 °dF or if you are using well
water, then it is recommended to use water
purification devices and special filters.
If the hardness level of the supply water is
below 13°dF, there is no need to use salt
in your dishwasher. If this is the case, “No
Salt Warning Indicator” (if any) illuminates
continuously on the panel of your machine.
If the water hardness level adjustment is set
to level 1, the “No salt warning indicator”
will illuminate continuously although it is not
necessary to use salt. If you use salt under
this condition, salt will not be consumed and
the Salt indicator will not illuminate.
If you move your house, it is
necessary to readjust water
hardness level of your machine
by considering the information
given above according to the
hardness level of the supply
water in your new location. Your
machine will display the most
recently adjusted water hardness
level.
C

It is recommended to use
granule- or powder-formed
softening salts in the water
softening system. Do not use
salts that do not completely
dissolve in water such as table
salt or rock salt. Otherwise the
performance of the system may
deteriorate in time.
Salt reservoir will be filled
with water when you start
the product. For this reason,
add salt before operating the
machine.
1. Firstly, take the lower basket out to add
softening salt.
2. Turn the salt reservoir lid counterclockwise to open it (A, B).
Adding salt
Water softening system needs to be
regenerated in order for the product
operates with the same performance
continuously. Dishwasher salt is used for this
purpose.
Use only special softening salts
produced particularly for the
dishwashers in your machine.
C
14 /43 EN
DISHWASHER / USER INSTRUCTIONS
Preparation
3. Add 1 litre of water to salt reservoir of
your machine only in initial use (C).
4. Fill the salt reservoir with salt by
using the salt funnel (D). To speed up
dissolution rate of salt in water, stir it with
a spoon.
C
You can put about 2 kg of
softening salt into the salt
reservoir.
5. Replace the lid and tighten it when the
reservoir is full.
C
You need to add salt right before
starting the machine. Thus, the
overflowing salty water will be
flushed immediately, preventing
the risk of corrosion in machine.
In cases where you would not
start washing immediately, run
your machine empty in the
shortest program.
DISHWASHER / USER INSTRUCTIONS
C
Since different salt brands in the
market have different particle
sizes and since the water
hardness may vary, dissolution
of the salt in water may take
a couple of hours. Therefore,
Salt Indicator remains on for a
while after adding salt into the
machine.
Detergent
You can use powder, liquid/gel or tablet
detergents in the machine.
Only use in the machine the
detergents produced particularly
for use with dishwashers. We
recommend you not to use
detergents that contain chlorine
and phosphate as they are
harmful for the environment.
A
Adding detergent
Pay attention to the warnings
on the detergent packaging to
get better washing and drying
results. Contact the manufacturer
of the detergent for further
questions.
C

Tablet detergents
3. Push the lid of the detergent dispenser to
close it. A "click" will be heard when the
lid is closed.
16 /43 EN
In addition to the conventional tablet
detergents, there are also commercially
available detergent tablets that show water
softening salt and/or rinse aid effect. Some
types of these detergents contain specialpurpose components such as glass and
stainless steel protectors. These tablets show
their effects up to a certain water hardness
level (21°dH). Water softening salt and
rinse aid must also be used together with the
DISHWASHER / USER INSTRUCTIONS
Preparation
detergent if the water hardness level is above
the mentioned level.
The best washing performance in
dishwashers is obtained by using
detergent, rinse aid and water
softening salt individually.
C
Rinse aid
C
The rinse aid used in dishwashers
is a special combination
that aims to increase drying
efficiency and prevent water
or lime stains on the washed
items. For this reason, care must
be paid to have rinse aid in the
rinse aid reservoir and to use
rinse aids produced specially for
dishwashers only.
1. Open the lid of the rinse aid reservoir
with the help of the latch.
C
C
Observe the instructions of the
detergent manufacturer on the
package when using tablet
detergents.
Contact the detergent
manufacturer if your dishes
are wet and/or if you notice
limescale spots particularly on
your glasses after the washing
programme is over when using a
tablet detergent.
When you switch to powder
detergent from tablet detergent:
1. Make sure that salt and rinse aid
reservoirs are full.
2. Set the water hardness to the highest
level and perform an empty run.
3. After the empty washing cycle, review
the user manual and readjust the water
hardness level so as to suit the water
supply.
4. Make the appropriate rinse aid settings.
DISHWASHER / USER INSTRUCTIONS
2. Fill the reservoir until “MAX” level.
3. Slightly press the point (B) of the
reservoir lid to close it.
17/43 EN
Preparation
4. If there are stains on tableware items
after washing, level must be increased
and if there is a blue trace after wiping
them by hand, it must be decreased. This
is set to position 3 as factory default.
C
C
The rinse aid adjustment is
described under "Adjusting
the amount of rinse aid" in
the section for operating the
machine.
Wipe clean any spilled rinse
aid outside the reservoir. Rinse
aid that spilled accidentally
will cause foaming and it will
eventually decrease washing
performance.
Items not suitable for washing
in the dishwasher
••
••
Never wash dishes soiled by cigarette
ash, candle remnants, polish, dyestuff,
chemicals, etc. in your dishwasher.
Do not wash silverware and cutlery
with wooden or bone stems, glued
pieces, or pieces that are not resistant
to heat, as well as copper and tinplated containers in the dishwasher.
Decorative prints of chinaware
as well as aluminum and silver
items may get discoloured or
tarnished after washing in the
dishwasher just as it happens
in handwashing as well. Some
delicate glass types and crystals
may become dull in time. We
strongly recommend you to
check if the tableware you are
going to purchase is suitable
for washing especially in the
dishwasher.
C
18 /43 EN
Placing the dishes into the
dishwasher
You can use your dishwasher in the optimum
way with respect to energy consumption and
washing and drying performance only if you
place the dishes in an orderly way.
•• Wipe away any coarse food remnants
(bones, seeds, etc.) on the dishes
before placing them in the dishwasher.
•• Place thin, narrow pieces in the middle
sections of baskets if possible.
•• Place the heavily soiled and bigger
items in the lower basket and smaller,
delicate and light items in the upper
basket.
•• Place the hollowed dishes such as
bowls, glasses and pans upside down
in the dishwasher. Thus, accumulation
of water in deep hollows is prevented.
To prevent possible injuries,
always place the sharp and
pointed dishes such as service
fork, bread knife, etc. upside
down so as their pointed ends
will face down or they will lie
horizontally in the dish basket.
A

will remain under the lid will dissolve during prewash, causing the lid loosen, check the
lid once again at the end of the programme.
• Salty food remnants have remained on dishes for a long time. >>> If cutlery soiled with
such foods will be kept waiting in machine, dirt must be removed by prewash or dishes
must be washed without being kept waiting.
• Electric installation is not grounded. >>>Check if your machine is connected to the actual
grounding line. Otherwise, the static electric created in the product causes arcs on the
surfaces of metal items creating pores, removing the protective cover on the surface and
causing discoloration.
• Intensive cleansers such as bleaches are used. >>> Protective cover on metal surfaces
gets damaged and looses its efficiency in time when it gets in contact with cleansers such
as bleach. Do not wash your dishes with bleach.
• Metal items particularly such as knives are used for purposes other then their intended
uses. >>> Protective cover on the edges of knives may get damaged when they are used
for purposes such as opening cans. Do not use metal kitchen utensils out of their intended
uses.
• Cutlery are made of low quality stainless steel. >>> Corrosion on such items is inevitable;
they should not be washed in dishwashers.

DISHWASHER / USER INSTRUCTIONS
Troubleshooting
• Kitchen utensils that are already corroded are washed in dishwasher. >>> Rust on a
corroded item can migrate to other stainless steel surfaces and cause corrosion on those
surfaces as well. Such items should not be washed in dishwashers.
Detergent remains in detergent dispenser.
• Detergent dispenser was damp when adding detergent. >>> Make sure that the
detergent dispenser is dried well prior to filling it with detergent.
• Detergent is added long before the washing process. >>> Pay attention to add detergent
shortly before start-up of the washing.
• Opening of the detergent dispenser lid is prevented during washing. >>> Place the dishes
in a way that will not prevent the detergent dispenser lid from opening and the water
going into the machine from impellers.
• Detergent is stored under unsuitable conditions. >>> If you are using powder detergent,
do not store the detergent package in humid places. Keep it in a closed container if
possible. For ease-of-storing, we recommend you to use tablet detergents.
• Impeller holes are clogged. >>> Lower and upper impeller holes might be clogged with
food remnants such as lemon pips. Clean the impellers regularly as illustrated in section
“Cleaning and Care”.
Decorations and ornaments on kitchen utensils are being erased.
C
Decorated glasses and decorated lustre porcelains are not suitable for washing in
the dishwasher. Manufacturers of some glassware and porcelain tableware items
do not recommend washing such kitchen utensils in the dishwashers either.
C
Kitchen utensils that contains or are made of aluminum should not be washed in
dishwasher.
Dishes are scratched.
• Salt leakage exists. >>> Pay attention not to spill salt around the salt filling hole while
adding salt. Spilled salt can cause scratches. Make sure that the salt reservoir lid is tightly
closed after finishing the filling process. Run the prewash programme to remove the salt
that spilled inside the machine. Since the salt granules that will remain under the lid will
dissolve during prewash, causing the lid loosen, check the lid once again at the end of
the programme.
• Water hardness setting is low or salt level is insufficient >>> Measure the hardness of the
supply water appropriately and check the water hardness setting.
• Dishes are not placed orderly in the machine. >>> When placing the glasses and other
glassware into the basket lean them not against other dishes but the edges or racks of
the basket or the glass support tines. Striking of the glasses to each other or to other
dishes due to the impact of water during washing can cause breaks, or scratches on their
surfaces.

Troubleshooting
A smear remains on glasses that resembles milk stain which can not be
removed when wiped by hand. A bluish / rainbow appearance occurs when
the glass is pointed to light.
• Excessive rinse aid is used. >>>Lower rinse aid setting. Clean the spilled rinse aid when
adding rinse aid.
• Corrosion has occurred on glass due to soft water. >>> Measure the hardness of the
supply water appropriately and check the water hardness setting. If your supply water is
soft (<5 dH), do not use salt. Choose programmes that wash in higher temperatures (e.g.
60-65°C). You can also use glass protective detergents that are commercially available.
Foam forms in the machine.
• Dishes are washed with hand-wash detergent by hand but not rinsed before placing them
into the machine. >>> Hand-wash detergents do not contain antifoam. There is no need to
hand-wash the dishes before placing them into the machine. Removing the coarse soil on
the dishes under tap water, with a tissue paper or fork will be sufficient.
• Rinse aid has spilled into the machine when adding rinse aid. >>> Take care that rinse
aid is not spilled in the machine when you are filling it. Clean any spilled rinse ait with the
help of a tissue paper/towel.
• Lid of the rinse aid reservoir is left open. >>> Make sure that the lid of the rinse aid
reservoir is closed after adding rinse aid.
Kitchen utensils are broken.
• Dishes are not placed orderly in the machine. >>> Load the dishes as described in the
user manual.
• Baskets are overloaded. >>> Do not overload the baskets in excess of their capacity.
Water remains in the dishwasher at the end of the programme.
• Filters are clogged. >>> Check if the filter system is clean. Clean the filter system regularly
as illustrated in section “Cleaning and Care”.
• Discharge hose is clogged/blocked. >>> Check the discharge hose. If necessary, remove
the discharge hose, clear the blockage and insert is as illustrated in the user manual.
