Prior Using for the first Time
Before using your dishwasher for the first time:
A. Filling salt into the salt container (water softener)
B. Fill the rinse aid dispenser
C. Fill in detergent
• Use only salt, rinse aid and detergent for dishwashers. Other products may damage the appliance.
• Always consider the dosage and storage recommendations on the sales packaging.
Keep salt, rinse aid and detergent out of reach for children.
A. Filling salt into the salt container (water softener)
Water softener
The water hardness varies regionally. If hard water is used in the dishwasher, deposits form on the dishes and
kitchen utensils. The appliance is equipped with a water softener, that removes lime and minerals from the
water by using water softening in the salt container. Your local water authority can advise you on the hardness
of the water in your area.
Adjusting the salt consumption
The salt consumption can be adjusted according to your water hardness and therefore optimally regulated.
• Switch on the appliance using the power button.
• Press the START/PAUSE button within the first 60 seconds for about 5 seconds. The warning lamps for
rinse aid and salt shortage lights up when the appliance is in setting mode.
• By repeatedly pressing the START/PAUSE button, the water hardness can be changed accordingly. The
display shows the setting: H1->H2->H3->H4->H5->H6
• A few seconds after the completion of your choice the indication goes off and the water hardness is automatically saved. Finish the setup via the power button.
The following settings (benchmarks) are recommended:

NOTE: *°dH: German degree / °fH: French degree / °Clark: British degree
Fill in the salt
• The salt container must only be refilled when the salt warning lamp in the control panel lights up.
• During filling the salt container, salt and water can escape. Start a program immediately after you have
filled the container to prevent corrosion.
• Remove the lower basket and unscrew the lid of the salt container.
• Add about 1.5 kg of salt by using the supplied funnel tube.
• Full fill the salt container with water (just before the first use).
• Screw the lid firmly on again after filling the container.
• Depending on salt dissolution, the salt warning lamp usually goes off immediately after filling the container.
B. Fill the rinse aid dispenser
Function of rinse aid
The rinse aid is automatically added during the final rinse, ensuring thorough rinsing and a spot and streak
free drying.
When to refill the rinse aid dispenser
As long as the rinse aid warning lamp does not light up on the control panel, you can estimate the amount of remaining rinse aid to the optical level indicator "C
C" next to the dispenser.
When the rinse aid dispenser is full, the indicator is completely dark. If the rinse aid diminishes, the size of
the black dot changes as shown below. In order to avoid spotting, the rinse aid level must not drop below ¼.
¾ full
½ full
¼ full – refill
Fill in the rinse aid
• To open the dispenser screw the lid counterclockwise to the open position (left arrow) and remove the lid.
• Add the rinse aid into the dispenser, being careful not to overfill.
The dispenser contains approx. 110 ml.
• Before closing the appliance door, put on the lid in the open position back and turn it clockwise to the
closed position (right arrow).
Remove spilled rinse aid with an absorbent cloth to avoid excessive foaming during the next rinse.
Adjusting the rinse aid dosage
When forming spots and the dishes dries poorly, increase the added amount of rinse aid. You can set the
amount of addition between level 1 (min.) and level 6 (max.).
Take off the lid of the rinse aid dispenser and adjust the dial to the desired level.
The factory setting is 4.
Increase the dosage if there are drops of water or lime spots on the dishes after rinsing. Reduce the dosage if
there are sticky whitish stains on dishes or a bluish film on glassware or knife blades.
C. Fill in detergent
Function of detergent
Detergents with its chemical ingredients are necessary to remove dirt, crush dirt and transport it out of the
dishwasher. The most commercially, high-quality cleaning agents are suitable for this purpose.
Normally new pulverized detergent is without phosphate. Thus the water softener function of phosphate is not
given. In this case we recommend to fill salt in the salt container even when the hardness of water is only
6°dH. If detergents without phosphate are used in the case of hard water often white spots appear on dishes
and glasses. In this case add more detergent to reach better results. Detergents without chlorine do only
bleach a little. Strong and colored spot will not be removed completely. In this case choose a program with a
higher temperature.
Detergent tablets (Tabs)
Dishwasher tablets from different manufacturers dissolve at different rates. It is possible that they will not fully
dissolve in programs with short running time and low water temperature and thus does not reach their full
productive efficiency. To ensure the complete removal of detergent residues, we recommend choosing rinse
programs with long running times and high water temperature. Always follow the manufacturer's instructions!
Fill in the detergent
• Always add the detergent just before starting the rinse cycle, otherwise it could get damp and will not dissolve properly.
• You’ll find information about the amount of detergent for the respective programs in the „Rinse cycle table“.
Note that depending on the degree of soiling and water hardness differences are possible.
• At the end of the rinse cycle the detergent dispenser must be empty.
The dispenser must be refilled before the start of each rinse cycle according to the instructions in the "Rinse cycle table".
Press the release button to open the dispenser.
1 Chamber of detergent in powder form for the main rinse
2 Chamber of detergent for the pre-rinse / Chamber for detergent in tablet form
Add with heavily soiled dishes an additional dose of detergent in the chamber for the pre-rinse.
Close the dispenser. Make sure that the lid locks into place.
Loading the Dishwasher Baskets
Only rinse such dishes and cutlery in the dishwasher, which is expressly marked as "dishwasher resistant".
• Remove gross scraps of food and soak burnt leftovers. Pre-rinse under running water is not necessary.
• Do not overload! This is important for adequate cleaning results and reasonable energy consumption.

Dirty filters and clogged spray arms degrade the rinsing. Regularly check the filter and spray arms and clean
them if necessary.
Filter system
The three-part filter system prevents larger amounts of food or other objects from getting inside the pump.
1: Main filter: food and soil particles trapped in this filter are pulverized by a special jet on the
lower spray arm and washed down to drain.
2: Coarse filter: filters out larger items such as pieces of bone or glass shards that could
block the drainage.
3: Micro filter: filters dirt and food residues in the sump area and prevents it from being redeposited on the dishware during rinse cycle.
Cleaning the filter system
• The dishwasher must never be used without the filter.
• Improper replacement of the filter can reduce performance and damage the appliance.
• Do not knock out the filter for cleaning to avoid possible deformations of the filters.
Check after each rinsing the filter for residues.
• Turn the coarse filter counterclockwise and remove the whole filter system upwards.
