5 How to use
Water hardness & regeneration settings
The dishwasher requires lime free water. Hard water leaves watermarks on
your dishes. Your dishwasher has a special water softening system to remove
the hardness of the tap water. Setting this system correctly will increase the
washing effectiveness.
To find out the hardness level of water in your area, contact your local Water
Board or Determine water hardness level by the help of test strip provided.
If you move to a different location, the level of water hardness will
possibly be different. It is essential to reset the water hardness in
order to obtain optimum washing efficiency.

To Adjust the Water Hardness;
1. Move the programme selection key to position 1 when the machine is turned
off.
2. Press Start/Pause/Cancel button.
3. Press On/Off button while keeping the Start/Pause/Cancel button pressed
to turn the machine on. Do not release the Start/Pause/Cancel button until
“Water Hardness Level” set appears on the indicator of the machine (See. Water
Hardness Level Adjustment Table).
4. The default “Water Hardness Level” will remain lit on the panel of the
machine for about 5 seconds. Release the Start/Pause/Cancel button after the
default “Water Hardness Level” appears.
5. To adjust the new Water Hardness Level, move the programme selection key
to the position that is suitable for your water supply. (See. Water Hardness Level
Adjustment Table)
**Programme selection key rotates in 5 steps regardless of the number of the
programme contained on the machine.
6. Press “Start/Pause/Cancel” key once to store the level you have selected.
7. Press the On/Off key to turn off your machine.
Water Hardness Level Adjustment Table
If the hardness level of the water that you use is above 80 °dF (French standard
for water hardness) or if you are using well water, then it is recommended to
use filter and water purification devices.
If the hardness level of the water that you use is below 8°dF (French standard
for water hardness), 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 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 lamp will not
illuminate.
12 GB
Adding Dishwasher Salt
Only use special pelletized
dishwasher salt in your machine to
soften the hard water. Never use
other types of salts including table
salt, animal feeding salt, sea salt,
culinary salt. These types of salt do
not dissolve in water easily and will
damage your appliance beyond repair.
When you run the dishwasher, the
Water softener will be full of water.
Therefore, adding softening salt
should always be done immediately
before you start the dishwasher.
Caution: Only fill with salt just before
starting one of the complete washing
programmes to prevent any grains of
salt causing corrosion. Ensure 1lt of
water has been added. You can put
approximately 2 kg softening salt in
the Water softener.
To fill the container with softening
salt, remove the lower rack first
and unscrew the cap of the water
softener turning anti clockwise.
Using the funnel provided will make
filling easier.
After you fill the container, screw
cap tightly back into place turning
clockwise until you hear a click sound.
In case the light of the salt indicator is
still on for a long time after filling with
salt, mix the salty water inside the
salt box using a spoon.
13
Detergent use
Any brand of powder, gel and tablet
detergents that have been designed
for household dishwashers, may be
used.
Keep detergents in a cool and dry
place and out of the reach of children.
Detergent must be added to the
container before each use.
Detergent overdose may cause
scratches on your dishes and there
may be traces of detergent left in
your machine.
Three types of detergent are
available
• Phosphate and containing
chlorine.
• Phosphate containing no chlorine
• Neither containing phosphate nor
chlorine
New compact powders are generally
phosphate-free. As phosphates
have water softening properties,
we suggest you add salt to the salt
container even if the hardness of your
water is as low as a 6 clarke degrees.
In hard water areas if a phosphate
free detergent is used, white marks
on the dishes and glasses may be
observed. It may be prevented by
increasing the amount of detergent.
Detergents without chlorine have
less bleaching effect. Coloured stains
may not be completely removed.
This may be prevented by increasing
the amount of detergent, using
a programme with a higher wash
GB
temperature or using a detergent
with chlorine.
•
Warning!
Two-in-one and three-in-one
detergents
You will obtain the best results from
your dishwasher if you use separate
detergent, rinse aid and watersoftening salt.
Detergent manufacturers also
produce combined detergents known
as ‘two-in-one’ and ‘three-in-one’.
Three-in-one: These products contain
detergent, rinse aid and watersoftening salt.
Two-in-one: These products contain
detergent and either rinse aid or
water-softening salt.
In general, you will obtain satisfactory
results from combined detergents
only under specific usage conditions.
These detergents contain
predetermined amounts of rinse aid
and/or softening salt. This means
that you cannot adjust the amount
of water-softening salt and rinse aid
required to suit the water hardness
level in your home.
You should bear the following points
in mind when using such detergents:
•
•
•
Be sure to check the
specifications of the product
you are using and whether it is a
combined product or not.
Follow the instructions on
the packet when using these
products.
The use of these products at the
correct appliance settings will
ensure economical use of salt
and/or rinse aid.
If the detergent is in tablet form,
never place these in the internal
section or cutlery basket of
the dishwasher. Always place
the tablets in the detergent
dispenser of the detergent
holder.
Using three-in-one detergent,
softening salt and rinse aid.
• These detergents will not give
you the same drying performance
that you can obtain by using
separate detergent, salt and
rinse aid. To increase the drying
performance:
• Put your appliance’s rinse aid
setting at “1” and apply rinse aid.
When the rinse aid is used up,
add more rinse aid to the rinse aid
dispenser.
• If you use combined detergents
with a rinse aid setting higher
than 1, hand contact may leave
rainbow-coloured water stains on
the washed items and inside the
machine.
• If you use combined detergents
without adding salt, lime scale
may form especially on glasses.
To avoid lime scale formation:
• Put your appliance’s water
softener setting at “1” and add
salt. When the salt is used up,
add more salt to the water
softener.
Using two-in-one detergent:
detergent and softening salt
• These detergents do not contain
rinse aid so you need to use the
rinse aid setting as described in
the manual, making sure that
14 GB
there is rinse aid in the rinse
aid dispenser with every wash
and that you refill the rinse aid
dispenser with rinse aid every
time it is empty.
Using two-in-one detergent and
rinse aid
• These detergents will not give
you the same drying performance
that you can obtain by using
separate detergent, salt and
rinse aid. To increase the drying
performance:
• Put your appliance’s rinse aid
setting at “1” and apply rinse aid.
When the rinse aid is used up,

rainbow-coloured water stains on
the washed items and inside the
machine.
• These detergents do not contain
softening salt so you need to
use the softening setting as
described in the manual, making
sure that there is salt in the water
softener with every wash and
that you refill the water softener
with salt every time it is empty.
Important warning
Should you encounter a problem that
has previously never occured after
you start using these detergents,
contact the detergent manufacturer
directly. You will find contact details
on the packet.
•
•
•
Put the water hardness setting at
the highest level and run a wash
cycle with the appliance empty.
After washing while empty,
return the water hardness
setting to the correct level for
your mains water hardness
shown in the manual.
Put the rinse aid setting at the
correct level.
Filling detergent dispenser
If the dishwasher is considerably full
and the dishes are relatively dirty, fill
the main container (A) up to 25cm³
level. If the dishwasher is not quite
full and the dishes are only slightly
soiled, fill the main container (A) only
up to 15cm³ level.
If your dishes are kept unwashed for
a long time and the food particles are
stuck on the dishes also fill the small
container (B) up to 5cm³. Depending
on the degree of soiling and the
water hardness in your area it may be
necessary to add more detergent.
If you stop using this kind of
detergent:
• Ensure that the salt and rinse aid
dispensers are full.
15 GB
Powder and gel detergents are
poured into the dispenser.
If you are using tablet detergent read
the manufacturer’s recommendations
on the packaging in order to
determine where the tablets should
be placed inside the dishwasher
(detergent dispenser, cutlery basket,
etc.)
After you put in the detergent, shut
the container lid (D) and ensure you
hear the clicking sound.
During the wash programme the
detergent will dispense automatically
and the lid (D) will remain open when
the programme finishes.
Do not use detergent when using the
pre-wash programme.
Detergent residues
Regular use of low temperature
washes and/or short duration
programmes can lead to undissolved
detergent residue build up. We
recommend to carry out a service
wash at the highest temperature
possible every 3 - 4 months with the
dishwasher empty and without using
detergent. It is not recommended to
carry it out with auto programme.
Rinse aid
Use only rinse aid intended for
household dishwashers.
The rinse aid is specially formulated
to be used in the dishwashers for
the prevention of watermarks and
scale on dishes and to increase the
efficiency of the washing and drying
processes. Therefore, make sure that
there is adequate amount of rinse
aid in the rinse aid dispenser of your
machine.
You can adjust the amount of rinse
aid used during the wash programme
by turning the rinse aid dispenser
regulator (C).
The dispenser regulator (C) may be
set between levels 1 and 6 (6 being
the maximum amount of rinse aid
usage). Your machine is pre-set at the
factory to level 4.
According to the finish and drying
results obtained, adjust the dose of
rinse aid by means of the six position
selector. (Position 1: minimum dose,
Position 6: maximum dose.) Gradually
increase the dose if there are drops
of water or lime spots on the dishes
after washing. Reduce it if there are
sticky whitish streaks on the dishes.
Filling the rinse aid dispenser
Open the rinse aid dispenser lid by
pressing the button as shown in the
diagram.
Fill up with rinse aid until the
container is full to level of ’max’ mark .
Put the lid (E) on and ensure you hear
the clicking sound.
Remember to CLOSE the lid after
every refill.
Make sure you clean any rinse aid that
you might have spilled.
