– Close hood and push the ON button ➀, tank will be filled.
The Start button ➁ illuminates red during fill and heating cycle.
This process can take several minutes (machines with built in
softener, adjusted to water hardness H02 or H03 need approx.
40 minutes).
When the Start button changes to green light, machine is ready
for operation.
11
– Place glasses and cups with the opening facing downwards into
the rack.
– Remove coarse food soil before loading plates into rack.
– Spray off greasy food soil.
GENERAL:
As detergent will be dosed into one tank only, uniform detergent
concentration is not reached during the first wash cycle.
Therefore it is recommended, doing the first wash cycle without
dishes.
7.2
Run
– Put racks into the machine and close hood.
The Start button ➁ illuminates blue, wash cycle is running.
– As soon as the Start button ➁ changes to green light, the
wash cycle is finished.
– Open hood and take out racks.
Allow dishes to dry for 1 minute approx.
– To avoid heat loss, lower hood to "Stand By" position
between wash cycles.
12
– Select program:
The machine is operating automatically with standard cycle time.
If needed, it is possible to select a shorter or longer program.
To show the present program, push Program button ➃ before
starting the wash cycle. To change the program, push Program
button again.
P 01 = Short cycle
(for light / medium soiled dishes and
glassware)
P 02 = Standard cycle (for medium / heavy soiled dishes)
P 03 = Long cycle
(for dried on soiling and containers)
P 04 = Endless cycle
An endless cycle will be indicated by moving light points
at the temperature indicators.
To stop the wash cycle, push Start button ➁. (After
20 minutes the machine will stop automatically.)
After a short break, rinse starts automatically.

Troubleshooting guide
TYPE OF FAILURE
POSSIBLE CAUSE
REMEDY
Wash arms stiff (you should be able
to turn them easily by hand).
Take out wash arms and clean them thoroughly.
Check water outlet from machine to wash arms is
clear.
Wash arm nozzles are clogged
(visual check).
Take out wash arm, remove cleaning cap and
rinse wash arm thoroughly until soil is removed.
Replace correctly.
Rinse arm nozzles are clogged
(possibly by lime deposit).
Remove rinse arms and decalcify them in
separate container.
Detergent concentration is too low or
too high.
Check setting of detergent concentration
See also operating instructions point 6.
Coarse strainer soiled.
Take out strainer, empty and clean it.
Fine strainer soiled or obstructed
by lime.
Take out fine strainer. If heavily soiled soak in a
vinegar solution. Then clean it thoroughly until
the pores are free.
Cleaning is to be done daily (see operating
instructions).
Wrong programme selected for heavily
soiled dishes.
Select programme with longer wash cycle.
Poor wash result
Dishes are not clean.
16
TYPE OF FAILURE
POSSIBLE CAUSE
REMEDY
Rinse aid concentration too low.
Increase concentration (see operating
instructions).
Dishes still greasy.
1. Detergent concentration too low: increase
(see instructions).
2. Check if detergent is appropriate. If not choose
a stronger one.
3. Drain soiled water and refill machine.
Check pre-scrapping procedure.
Rack is not suitable for type of dishes
(sloping).
Use appropriate racks to create a sloping position
which allows water to drain away from cavities.
Dishes stay too long in the machine
at the end of programme.
Take out dishes as soon as cycle is completed
to enable them to dry.
Rinse aid concentration too high.
Reduce quantity (see instructions).
Hard water or high mineral content.
Check water quality.
Obtain details from local water authority.
Poor wash result
Dishes or glasses
do not dry properly.
Stripes and stains on
dishes or glasses.
Recommended values:
Ideal degree of hardness is 4° Clark.
Ideal conductivity value for glasses is max.
150 µS/cm and for dishes max. 400 µS/cm.
Rack is not suitable for type of dishes
(sloping).
Use appropriate racks to create a sloping position
which allows water to drain away from cavities.
Insufficient rinse aid concentration
causes stains.
Increase quantity (see instructions).
Machine with softener:
wrong type of salt used.
Use only granular salt.
Glasses are totally or
partially cloudy.
Surface of glasses is rough and
porous, this is called glass corrosion.
This is not caused by a malfunction on the
machine. Replace with new glasses.
Glass breakages.
Use of inappropriate dish or glass
racks.
Use appropriate racks.
Other malfunctions
AUXXT models only:
High pressure cleaning had been
activated.
Machine suddenly stops
during wash programme.
Never use high pressure cleaning for glasses
and light dishes.
Machine is connected to a "maximum
power supply unit" which cuts out the
energy consumer at a given point, or
machine is interlocked with another
energy consumer unit.
Connect machine separately (call electrician).
Blown site fuse.
Check site fuses.
If no button will be pressed during 6 hours, the machine switches off automatically without draining.
Follow the description below during the next switch on:
– Push the ON/OFF-button ➀.
– Push the Drain-button ➂ and wait, until the machine is drained and switched off.
Restart the machine as described at chapter 7.
