Before washing for the
first time
1. Checking water hardness
2. Basic settings
In order to achieve good dishwashing results, the dishwasher needs
soft water (water with low mineral content). Hard water leaves a white
coating on dishes and the dishwasher.
To switch on the dishwasher, press and hold the main power switch
until the display lights up.
Water hardness is specified using the following scales: The German
water hardness scale (°dH) and the French water hardness scale (°fH).
A water supply with a water hardness in excess of 6°dH (9°fH) must
be softened. This is done automatically with the aid of the built-in water
softener. In order for the softener to function optimally, it must be
adjusted to the hardness of the water supply.
"Welcome to your new ASKO. This is a first time set up." is shown
on the display. It is important that you choose the right settings to
ensure good dishwashing results.
Select setting
Contact the local waterworks, or measure the water hardness using
the supplied test strip, to check the water hardness in your area. Once
you have adjusted the water softener, use detergent and rinse aid
doses suitable for soft water.
How to use the test strip:
1 Turn on the water tap and let the water run for a minute or so.

between 0 (Off) and 5 (High dosage).
When using an all-in-one detergent that contains rinse aid, you can
activate the setting TAB. Read more about all-in-one detergent in the
chapter Using the dishwasher.

3. Top up with rinse aid
4. Top up with salt
Drying is faster and a better result is achieved if you use rinse aid. You
will also achieve a better dishwashing result with clear and spotless
dishes.
Before you begin using a dishwasher with a water softener, you must
fill the salt compartment with salt for the water supply to be softened
automatically. Use large grain salt or special dishwasher salt.
Press to open
WARNING!
In order to avoid rust stains a dishwashing programme must be
started immediately after adding salt.
Never pour dishwasher detergent into the salt compartment. This
destroys the water softener!
Do as follows the first time:
1 Unscrew the lid as illustrated.
1 Open the rinse aid compartment lid.
2 Place the funnel supplied with the dishwasher in the salt
compartment top-up hole. First, pour in about 1 l of water.
2 Carefully top up with rinse aid. Only add rinse aid to the level marked
max.
3 Then add salt, a maximum of 1.0 kg, until the compartment is full.
3 Wipe up any splashes of rinse aid around the compartment.
4 Close the lid firmly.
4 Wipe up any excess salt so that the lid can be screwed on firmly.
5 Run a programme to ensure that any salt in the dishwasher is rinsed
away.
Top up rinse aid
When the rinse aid needs topping up, the above symbol lights on the
display.
After topping up, it may take a while before the symbol goes out.
NOTE!
Increase the rinse aid dosage:
• If the dishes have water marks.
Decrease the rinse aid dosage:
• If the dishes have a sticky white/blue film.
• If the dishes are streaked.
• Build-up of foam. If you have very soft water, the rinse aid can be
diluted 50:50 with water.
Salt compartment lid
Top up salt
When the salt needs topping up, the above symbol lights on the display.
When the salt runs out, unscrew the cap and fill the container with salt.
Water is only needed the first time! Wipe clean and tighten. Run a
programme to ensure that any salt in the dishwasher is rinsed away.
After topping up, it may take a while before the symbol goes out.

Loading the dishwasher
Energy-efficient dishwashing
Fragile dishes
Run programmes only with a full load
Wait to run a programme until the dishwasher is full, this way you save
energy. Use the Rinse and hold programme to rinse the dishes if there
are any unpleasant odours while you wait for the dishwasher to become
fully loaded.
Some cookware is not dishwasher safe. This can be for several reasons.
Some materials cannot withstand strong heat, others can be damaged
by dishwashing detergent.
Run programmes at a lower temperature
If the dishes are only slightly dirty, you can select a programme with
a low temperature.
Select Green mode
The dishwasher has different programme modes. To save energy and
water, use Green mode.
Better drying results are achieved if you use the Auto Open option,
which automatically opens the dishwasher door at the end of the
programme. (If the dishwasher is built-in the surrounding furnishings
must be resistant to any condensation from the dishwasher.)
Do not rinse under running water
Simply scrape off large food particles before loading the dishwasher.
Choose a green detergent
Read the environmental declaration on the packaging!
Connect to cold water
Connect the dishwasher to the cold water supply if the building is
heated using oil, electricity or gas.
Connection to hot water supply
Connect the dishwasher to the hot water supply (max. 70 °C) if the
building is heated using an energy-efficient means such as district
heating, solar power or geothermal power. Choosing a hot water
connection cuts dishwashing times and reduces the dishwasher's
energy consumption.
NOTE!
Do not exceed the permitted water supply temperature. Certain
materials used in some cookware cannot withstand strong heat.
Exercise caution with, for example, handmade items, fragile decoration,
crystal/glassware, silver, copper, tin, aluminium, wood and plastic.
Look for the "Dishwasher safe" marking.
Fragile decoration
Porcelain with decoration on top of the glazing (the items feel rough)
should not be washed in a dishwasher.
Crystal/Glass
Wash fragile items made of crystal/glass, such as crystal glass from
Orrefors, using the gentle dishwashing programme Crystal glass.
Remember to use a small amount of detergent and to place items so
that they do not touch each other during the wash.
Drying is faster and a better result is achieved if you use rinse aid. You
will also achieve a better dishwashing result with clear and spotless
dishes.
Hand-painted glassware, as well as antique and very fragile items,
should not be washed in a dishwasher.
Silver
Silver and stainless steel items should not come into contact, as the
silver can become discoloured.
Aluminium
Aluminium can lose its shine if washed in a dishwasher. However, good
quality aluminium pans can be washed in a dishwasher, even if some
of the shine will be lost.
Cutlery with glued handles
Some types of glue are not dishwasher safe. In such cases, the handles
may loosen.
Points to consider
• All dirty surfaces should face inwards and downwards!
• Dishes should not be placed in or on each other.
• Angle dishes with hollows, such as cups, so that the rinse water
will run off. This is also important for plastic items.
• Make sure small items cannot fall through the dishwasher basket;
place them in the top cutlery tray.
NOTE!
Check that the spray arms can rotate freely.

The dishwasher's baskets
glasses are placed on the wine glass shelf and knives are placed in
the knife stand on the right (if fitted).
The dishwasher is equipped with a top cutlery tray, an upper basket
and a lower basket with a cutlery basket.
The appearance of the baskets may differ depending on the dishwasher
setup.
Top cutlery tray
The top cutlery tray has space for cutlery, ladles, whisks, serving cutlery
and similar items.
Raising the top cutlery tray
1 Pull out the top cutlery tray.
2 Pull forward the two locking handles on either side to raise the top
cutlery tray.
Lowering the top cutlery tray
1 Make sure the upper basket is in the lowest position.
2 Pull out the top cutlery tray.
3 Slide the two locking handles on either side downwards and
backwards to lower the top cutlery tray.
Raising the upper basket
1 Pull out the upper basket.
2 Grab the sides of the upper basket with both hands and lift it up.
Lowering the upper basket
1 Pull out the upper basket.
2 Pull out the two locking handles on either side to lower the upper
basket.
Upper basket
Place glasses, cups, bowls, side plates and saucers in the upper
basket. All dirty surfaces should face inwards and downwards! Wine
Lower basket
Place plates, side plates, serving dishes, pots and cutlery (in the cutlery
basket) in the lower basket.
Place pots and pans in the rear right of the lower basket to best utilise
dishwashing performance from the rear spray nozzle (WideSpray™),
which is intended for these types of dishes.
7
Cutlery basket with lid
The cutlery basket lid can be removed and used, for example, as an
extra cutlery basket in the upper basket (see below).
Foldable tines
Lower the foldable tines (plate supports) when washing pots. Release
the foldable tines by pressing the catch inwards before adjusting their
position.
Accessory
Buy an extra cutlery basket. The extra cutlery basket is flexible and
can be dismantled and attached to the lower basket or the large cutlery
basket to make an extra large cutlery basket. This accessory is
available where you bought the dishwasher.
Washing large plates
Move foldable tines and their mounts to widen the distance between
the tine rows to adapt the lower basket to plates with a diameter greater
than 25 cm.
2
Cutlery basket
Place cutlery with the handles facing down, except for knives, and
spread them out as much as possible. Ensure that spoons do not stack
inside each other.
The cutlery basket is best placed in the middle at the front of the lower
basket to best utilise dishwashing performance from the unique spray
nozzle (Power Zone Cutlery™), which is intended for the cutlery basket.
WARNING!
Knives and other pointed items must be placed with the points down
in the cutlery basket or horizontally in other baskets.
Fold-down section for small items
The cutlery basket has a fold-down section in the middle for small
items, or small shafts, such as electric whisk attachments.

Using the dishwasher
Add detergent
Press to open
NOTE!
Use only dishwasher detergent! Washing up liquid must not be used
as the foam that forms prevents the dishwasher from operating
effectively.
Dishwasher tablets
Halve the tablet if it is difficult to close the dispenser lid. There is a risk
that the detergent will not be released properly if the lid is tight and
will not open correctly.
NOTE!
1 Prewash detergent compartment
2 Main wash detergent compartment
Dishwasher tablets are not recommended for short programmes
(less than 75 minutes). Use powder or liquid dishwasher detergent
instead.
Detergent is added according to water hardness.
Follow the instructions on the detergent packaging. This dishwasher
is fitted with a water softener, so use detergent and rinse aid doses
suitable for soft water.
All-in-one detergent
There are many types of all-in-one detergents on the market. Read
through the directions for these products carefully.
Too much detergent can result in less effective dishwashing and also
entails greater environmental impact.
When using an all-in-one detergent that contains rinse aid, you can
activate the setting TAB. Note that the salt compartment must be filled
with salt.
The detergent compartment must be dry when adding detergent. There
is one compartment for the prewash and one for the main wash. If
powder or liquid dishwasher detergent is used, add a small amount
of the detergent to the prewash compartment. Contact the detergent
manufacturer if you have questions about the detergent.
NOTE!
Optimal washing and drying results are achieved by using normal
detergent together with separately dispensed rinse aid and salt.

Lower spray arm
• Pull the lower spray arm straight up to release it.
3 Replace in reverse order. Check that the edges seal properly when
replacing the fine filter.
4 Lock the filter in place by turning the handle clockwise to the stop
position. The handle should point straight out from the dishwasher.
NOTE!
The dishwasher must not be used without the filters in place!
Dishwashing results may be affected if the coarse filter is incorrectly
fitted.
Spray arms
Holes and bearings can sometimes become blocked. Remove any
debris using a pin or the like. The spray arms also have holes
underneath.
The door and the door seal
Regularly clean the sides of the door and the door seal. Use a slightly
damp cloth (with a little cleaner if necessary).
Front panel
Keep the buttons clean and free from grease. Wipe them clean with a
dry or slightly damp cloth. Never use cleaners – they can scratch the
surface. Use the main power switch to turn off the dishwasher before
cleaning the buttons to avoid activating any buttons unintentionally.
The dishwasher tub
The dishwasher tub is made of stainless steel and is kept clean through
normal use.
To facilitate cleaning you can remove the spray arms. Remember to
fit them firmly back into place afterwards.
Limescale deposits
If you have hard water, limescale deposits may build up in the
dishwasher. If this happens, run the Self-cleaning programme with two
tablespoons of citric acid in the detergent compartment (with no dishes
in the machine). Special dishwasher cleaners are also available on the
market.
15

Nominal dimensions. Actual measurements may vary.
It is important that you read through and follow the instructions and
directions below. Conduct installation and connection in accordance
with the separate installation instructions.
Safety instructions
• Connections to electricity, water and drainage must be performed
by a qualified professional.
• Always follow applicable regulations for water, drainage and
electricity.
• Take care during installation! Wear protective gloves! There must
always be two people!
• Place a drip tray on the floor beneath the dishwasher to prevent
damage from any water leaks.
• Before screwing the dishwasher into place, test the dishwasher by
running the Rinse and hold programme. Check that the dishwasher
fills with water and drains. Check also that none of the connections
leak.
WARNING!
Turn off the water supply when installing the dishwasher!
The plug must be disconnected or power to the socket turned off
while the work is carried out!
Setup
• The recess and connection dimensions are included in the separate
installation instructions. Check that all dimensions are correct before
starting the installation. Note that the height of the cover door can
be adjusted to match other fittings.
• Make sure the area on which the dishwasher is to be installed is
firm. Adjust the adjustable feet so that the dishwasher is level.
Tighten the lock nuts.
• Affix the protective film (packed in the document bag) to the
underside of the worktop. The protective film is to protect the
worktop from moisture.
• Check that the machine is installed such that the door opens freely,
otherwise door lock functionality may be disrupted.
22
• Stronger door springs are available for purchase for dishwashers
with a fitted wooden door. Springs are available for various weights
and sizes of wooden door. Door springs can be purchased from
the retailer who sold you the dishwasher.
Service
Drainage connection
See the separate installation instructions for necessary information.
This dishwasher is suitable for installing in a raised recess (to attain
an ergonomic working height). This means that the dishwasher can be
placed so that the drainage hose runs to a lower level than the bottom
of the dishwasher, such as by routing it directly to a floor drain. The
dishwasher is fitted with an integrated anti-siphon device to prevent
the machine from being emptied of water during the wash cycle.
Read the chapter Troubleshooting before contacting the service
department. If you have encountered a problem that you cannot resolve,
please contact your nearest dealer, see www.asko.com.
When making contact, provide the details on the serial number plate.
Include the article number (1) and the serial number (2).
The drainage hose can also be connected to a connection nipple on
the sink unit's water trap. The connection nipple must have an internal
diameter of at least 14 mm.
The drainage hose may be extended by a maximum of 2.5 m (the total
length of the drainage hose must not exceed 4.5 m). Any joins and
connecting pipes must have an internal diameter of at least 14 mm.
However, the drainage hose should ideally be replaced with a new
hose without joins.

2
ART. NO.
SERIAL NO.
No part of the drainage hose may be more than 950 mm above the
bottom of the dishwasher.
Ensure that the drainage hose has no kinks.
Connection to water supply
Use only the inlet hose supplied with the dishwasher. Do not re-use
old or other spare hoses.
The supply pipe must be fitted with a water tap (stopcock). The water
tap must be easily accessible, so that the water can be shut off if the
dishwasher has to be moved.
Once the installation is complete, turn on the water tap and allow the
pressure to settle for a while. Check that all connections are watertight.
Connection to cold water supply
Connect the dishwasher to the cold water supply if the building is
heated using oil, electricity or gas.
Connection to hot water supply
Connect the dishwasher to the hot water supply (max. 70 °C) if the
building is heated using an energy-efficient means such as district
heating, solar power or geothermal power. Choosing a hot water
connection cuts dishwashing times and reduces the dishwasher's
energy consumption.
NOTE!
Do not exceed the permitted water supply temperature. Certain
materials used in some cookware cannot withstand strong heat. See
Fragile dishes in the chapter Loading the dishwasher.
Electrical connection
Information about the electrical connection can be found on the serial
number plate. This specification must match the electricity supply.
The dishwasher must be connected to an earthed socket.
The electric wall socket must be placed outside of the installation area
to be easily accessible after installing the dishwasher. Do not use an
extension cord!
NOTE!
Repairs and maintenance relating to safety or performance must be
carried out by a qualified professional.
