Preparing The Machine For
Importance of water softening
For a good washing function, your dishwasher needs soft water, i.e. water with less
lime. Otherwise white lime deposits will be
observed on internal components of your
appliance or on your dishes.
This will negatively affect the washing,
drying and rinsing performance of your
appliance. Water is cleaned of ions causing hardness when they pass through the
system and water reaches the softness required for best washing result. Depending
on hardness of inlet water, ions causing
this hardness accumulate in water softener
system quickly. Therefore, softener system
must be cleaned to get the same performance in the next wash. Dishwasher salt is
used for this purpose.
If insufficient salt warning lamp on the
control panel is lit, add salt in the container.
Fill the salt container with water just for the
first use. It is recommended to use powder
softening salt or salt with small granules.
Do not use food salt in your appliance.
Otherwise, softener container may lose
its function with time. When you run your
dishwasher, salt container and internal container are filled with water. Therefore, fill
the softening salt before starting the dishwasher. If you are not going to wash right
away, run a short wash programme when
the appliance is empty to prevent damage
to appliance due to excessive salt remaining from filling (to prevent corrosion).
Filling Salt
Use special softening salt in your machine
produced just for use in dishwashers. Remove the bottom basket to fill softening
Test Strip
Washing efficiency of the appliance depends on the softness of washing water. Therefore, your appliance has a system to decrease the hardness of the mains water. Washing
efficiency will increase if the system is set correctly. Find out the hardness of mains water
by using the test strip (if available) to set the system.

Detergent Use
Adjust the water hardness setting of
your machine according to the level
specified on the test strip.
Use detergents produced just for dishwashers.
Powder, liquid and tablet detergents are
available in the market produced specially
for your dishwasher.
Detergent must be filled in the container
before running the appliance. Store detergents in a cool and dry place with their
packaging closed away from children. Do
not fill detergent container with detergent
more than required. This can cause scratches on glasses and prevent complete dissolution of the detergent. If your require

sults only for certain uses. If you use this
type detergent, you need to consult with
detergent manufacturers and find out the
appropriate conditions of use.
• These products offer savings in salt and/
or rinse aid consumption when usage conditions and machine setting are correct.
• If you cannot achieve successful washing
by using 2 in 1 or 3 in 1 detergent (your
dishes end up with lime deposits and wet),
consult with detergent manufacturers.
Appliance warranty does not cover complaints caused by the use of these detergents.
Recommended type of use; if you want
to achieve better results by using combined detergents, add salt and rinse aid to
your appliance, set water hardness and rinse aid settings to lowest (1) level.
Solubility of detergents produced as various tablets by different manufacturers
vary depending on temperature and
time. Therefore, it is not recommended
to use these detergents in short programmes. It is more suitable to use powder detergents in these programmes.
Combined detergents
Detergent manufacturers produce combined detergents called 2 in 1, 3 in 1, 5 in
1, etc. 2 in 1 detergents include detergent
+ salt or rinse aid. Check the functions of
the tablet when using 2 in 1 detergents.
Other tablet detergents have extra functions such as detergent+rinse aid+salt, etc.
In general, combined detergents provide
successful result in certain conditions of
use. These detergents contain rinse aids
and/or salt in pre-determined amounts.
Things to consider when using these
• Check what properties the product you
will use have or if it is a combined product.
• Check if the detergent used is suitable
for the hardness of the mains water that
the appliance is connected to.
• Follow instructions on the packaging
when using these products.
• If these detergents are tablets, do not
place them inside the dishwasher or in the
cutlery basket. Place tablets in detergent
section inside detergent container.
• These detergents provide successful re16
WARNING: If you experience a problem
due to the use of such detergents that you
have not experienced before, contact the
detergent manufacturer. You can find contact details on packaging. When you give
up using combined detergents;
• Fill in salt and rinse aid containers.
• Set water hardness to the highest (6) level and run empty washing.
• Adjust water hardness according to the
hardness of the water.
• Make suitable rinse aid setting.
You can tell if your appliance requires addition of rinse aid by checking the rinse
aid indicator on detergent container. Dark
rinse aid indicator b means there is sufficient rinse aid and light indicator a means
it requires addition. Rinse aid level setting
can be set between 1-6 positions. Rinse
aid is set to 3 in factory. You can use a flat
screwdriver to set the rinse aid.
If water marks are observed on dishes
after washing, you need to increase the
level. If a blue mark is observed when
wiped by hands, you need to decrease
the level. (picture 3)
Filling and Adjusting Rinse
Rinse aid is used to prevent formation of
white water drops, lime marks and stains
in the form of white layer on dishes and
increase drying performance. Contrary to
popular belief, it is used not only for dishes
to be more shiny but also achieve sufficient level of drying. Therefore, make sure
there is rinse aid in rinse aid container and
use rinse aids produced specially for use in
If rinse aid insufficient warning lamp on
control panel is lit, add rinse aid to the section in detergent container. Remove the
rinse aid section cap by turning it to add
rinse aid. (picture 1)
WARNING: Rinse aid is recommended
to be in level 2 for short programmes.
WARNING: Use rinse aid that is approved in the appliance. Wipe the overflowing
rinse aid as it will reduce the washing performance by creating excessive foam due
to rinse aid residues.
Fill rinse aid until rinse aid level indicator a
b on rinse aid container gets dark ( picture
2), replace the cap and close it by turning it
until guide marks face each other.
Placing Dishes into Dishwasher
Unloading Washed Dishes
It is recommended to unload the bottom
basket first in order to prevent water droplets to fall on dishes on the bottom basket
while unloading the dishwasher.
Start unloading the dishwasher when dishes are cool enough so that you can touch
after washing program is over.
Placing dishes correctly will allow you to
get the best of your appliance in terms of
energy consumption, washing and drying
performance. Your appliance has two baskets in which you can place your dishes.
You can place large and deep parts such as
long-handled pots, pot covers, plates, salad plates, cutlery in the lower basket. Top
basket is designed for tea plate, dessert
plate, salad bowls, cups and glasses. Place glasses with long handles on the edge
of the basket and against the rack, not on
other objects. Do not lean long glasses on
each other. They might be damaged by
hitting each other.
It is better to place objects with thin, narrow bodies in the middle of the baskets.
Place spoons among forks and knives to
prevent them from sticking to each other.
Use cutlery grid for the best result. Place
long and sharp dishes such as service fork,
large knife, etc. with their sharp tips facing
down or horizontally on dish baskets to
prevent possible injuries.
WARNING: Place dishes in the appliance
so that they do not prevent rotation of top
and bottom spray arms.
