Before using your appliance for the first time
Before you can use your appliance for the first time, you must select the language. When
the appliance has been switched on, the following display is output:
The language abbreviation “DE” for
“Deutsch” (German) is flashing. If you
want to select a different language,
press – or + 3 repeatedly until the
abbreviation of your desired language
Confirm the language selection by
pressing M/OK 2 .
All following optical character messages
will be displayed in the selected language.
Providing operating materials
Chosen the wrong language
Before using the appliance for the first time
and after selecting the language, fill with
salt (if required) and rinse aid and adjust
the softening system. Proceed as
described in the chapters “Filling with salt”,
“Filling with rinse aid” and “Adjusting the
softening system”.
The following steps will take you back
to the language selection:
1. Switch off the device.
2. Switch on the device. Press the button
M/OK 2 until the language selection
is displayed.
3. Select the desired language and
confirm your selection.
To operate the dishwasher you will require
salt (only for appropriate water
hardness, see chapter “Adjusting
the softening system”),
rinse aid,
Only use products which are suitable
for the dishwasher.
Filling in the Salt
If the hardness of your mains
water corresponds to the
device’s index value
chapter “Setting up the softening
system”), you do not need to fill
in the salt because the operation
will not use any salt. In case of
the settings “Hardness-Auto” and
to , salt must be filled in.
During the rinse cycle the salt is being
washed automatically from the salt
compartment into the softening system
where it will dissolve the lime.
The lime-containing solution drains from
the dishwasher. Afterwards the softening
system is ready to be loaded again.
This regeneration cycle will only work if
the salt is dissolved in water.
After switching on the device, lack of salt
is indicated by the display “Refill Salt”.
(This display will no longer appear once
you have set the softening system to the
value .)
Open the screw-type cap of the
compartment 25 .
Before operating the device for the first
time you must pour 1 litre of water into
the salt compartment.
Then you must refill salt (not table salt)
using the supplied salt filling aid until the
salt compartment is full (max 1.5 kg).
When you refill the salt, water is being
displaced and drains off. Therefore the
refilling must take place shortly before
switching on the device. (In order to avoid
corrosion). This way the overflowing salt
solution is diluted and flushed immediately.
Then clean the filling area of salt residues
and screw the compartment lid back on
without tilting the lid.
As soon as a sufficiently high salt solution
has formed the display “Refill Salt” will
If you do not want to wait until the display
disappears but you want to wash
immediately, confirm the refilling of the salt
using the button M/OK 2 .
If you do not want to refill the salt now you
can skip the display “Refill Salt” by
pressing the button M/OK 2 .
Do not pour detergent into the
container for special salt. This
would destroy the water
Setting up the water
In order to provide satisfactory rinsing
results, the dishwasher requires soft water,
i.e., containing little or no lime, otherwise
water stains will be left behind on the
dishes and interior containers.
If the tap water exceeds a certain level of
hardness, it must be softened, i.e.,
decalcified, so that it can be used in the
This is achieved by adding a special salt
to the water softener inside the
The water softener, that is the required
amount of salt, is set up according to how
hard the tap water is.
The softening system is only capable to
accept a limited amount of lime. If this
limit is reached the system must be
regenerated or refreshed using salt.
The factory setting “Hardness-Auto” allows
the deposit sensor to determine the
hardness and to control the softening
system automatically. This means that
changes to the settings are unnecessary
during start-up or in case of changes in
the water hardness.
If you would nevertheless like to set
the water softening system manually,
proceed as follows:
Find out the degree of hardness of your
tap water. Your water supply company
or customer service will assist you.
Switch on the appliance with the main
switch 1 . The main menu is
displayed (if switching on the appliance
for the first time, only when a language
has been selected and dispensers
have been filled with salt (if required)
and rinse aid).
Press the button M/OK 2 until
“Hardness-Auto” is displayed.
Using the buttons – or + 3 , select the
setting corresponding to the hardness
of your mains water. The factory setting
is “Hardness-Auto”.
Press the button M/OK 2 to store the
setting and return to the Main Menu.
If the setting is “0” the softening system is
switched off. Possible lack of salt will not
be indicated.
Filling with rinse aid
Rinse aid is used in washing mode to
ensure that glasses are sparkling and
utensils are stain-free.
When the appliance is switched on, low
rinse aid level is indicated by ”Refill rinse
aid”. You can add rinse aid either when the
appliance door is completely open or – for
a more comfortable posture – when the
door is half open.
Open the rinse aid dispenser 30 by
pressing the button on the dispenser
cover and open the cover. When the
door is half open, also pull out the
hinged filling aid until it locks into
If necessary, you can change the amount
of rinse aid that is added during the
operation. In order to do this, select the
option “Rinse Aid Amount” as described
in the chapter “Device Set-up” under
the heading “Options/Basic Settings”.
rinse–aid control
Fill when door is fully open.
Fill in the rinse aid slowly and take care
not to overfill. The right amount is
indicated by the level indicator at the
compartment not being illuminated
when the door is fully opened and by
the display “Refill Rinse Aid” no longer
being lit.
Close the lid of the compartment until it
audibly clicks into place. If necessary,
the filling aid will be re-inserted

Filling when the door is half open.
Use only rinse aid for domestic
dishwashers. Spilt rinse aid
may result in excessive foam
formation in the next rinse
cycle. Therefore, remove any
spilt rinse aid with a cloth.
Unsuitable dishes
You should not clean the
following items in your
Cutlery and dishes made of wood. They
will leach out and become unsightly; the
utilised adhesives are also not suitable
for the dishwasher temperatures.
Delicate décor glasses, craft dishes and
vases, special antique or irreplaceable
dishes. These décor items are not
Plastic parts, copper and tin dishes
sensitive to hot water are not suitable
either. Overglazed patterns, aluminium
and silver parts tend to become
discoloured and fade during the rinsing
cycle. Even some types of glass (e.g.
crystal glass objects) may become cloudy
after many rinse cycles. Completely
absorbent materials, such as sponges and
cloths must not be cleaned in the
dishwasher either.
In future buy only dishes which are
identified as dishwasher-safe.

Loading the dishwasher
Scrape off any large amounts of left-over
food. It is not necessary to rinse the dishes
under running water.
Place objects in the dishwasher in such a
way that
items such as cups, glasses, pots/pans,
etc. are stood upside down,
curved items, or those with recesses,
should be at a slant so that water can
run off,
they are stacked securely and cannot
tip over,
they do not prevent the spray arms from
rotating while washing takes place.
Very small items should not be washed in
the dishwasher as they could easily fall out
of the baskets.
Cups and glasses
Cutlery should be placed in the
dishwasher always unsorted and with the
eating surface pointing downwards. The
spray jet is then better able to reach the
individual parts.
To prevent injuries, place long, pointed
accessories and knives on the étagère
(some models) or on the knife shelf
(available as an accessory).

Notes on detergents
You may use any brand of liquid or powder
detergent, as well as tablets, that have
been specifically designed for use in
domestic dishwashers (do not use normal
washing-up liquid!).
To raise the basket, take hold of the
basket on the upper edge and pull
Before you re-insert the basket, ensure
that it is at the same height on both
sides. Otherwise, the appliance door
cannot be closed and the upper spray
arm will not connect to the water circuit.
Nowadays there are three types of
dishwasher detergent available:
1. Those containing phosphates
and chlorine.
2. Those containing phosphates
but no chlorine.
3. Those containing neither phosphates
nor chlorine.
When a phosphate-free detergent is used
in conjunction with hard water, there is
a greater possibility that white marks will
be left behind on the dishes and glasses,
These can be prevented by pouring an
increased amount of detergent into the
Chlorine-free detergents have a reduced
bleaching effect. This may mean that tea
stains are not completely removed or
plastic items become discoloured.
This can be resolved by:
– using the “Auto Super Wash”
– increasing the amount of detergent
– using a detergent that contains chloride
Check the label on the packaging to
determine whether a particular product is
suitable for use with silverware.
If you have any further questions, we
recommend that you contact the customer
advice departments of the respective
detergent manufacturer.
Detergent dispenser with
dosing aid
The graduated detergent dispenser helps
you add the correct amount of detergent.
The lower and middle lines in the
dispenser indicate15 ml and 25 ml of
detergent respectively. The dispenser can
be filled with 40 ml of detergent when the
door is opened horizontally.
Filling with detergent
You can add detergent either when the
appliance door is completely open or –
for a more comfortable posture – when
the door is half open.
If the detergent dispenser is still closed,
open it by pressing the catch
When the door is half open, press the
button on the right side of the detergent
dispenser. Swivel up the detergent
compartment and cover. The detergent
compartment can easily be locked into
position by lifting it slightly.
Pour detergent into the dispenser.
Please follow the manufacturer’s
instructions on the detergent packet
for correct dosage.
Due to the different solvency properties
of the detergent tablets supplied by
various manufacturers, the cleaning
efficiency of the detergent may not be
fully utilised by short programmes. It is
recommended to use washing powder
for these programmes.
For the “Auto Super Wash” function,
pour an additional 10–15 ml of
detergent onto the inside of the
appliance door.
Reduce costs!
If your dishes are only
moderately dirty, you may be
able to use less detergent than
If using washing tablets, please refer to
the washing tablets box where to place
the tablets in the appliance (e.g. in the
cutlery basket, detergent dispenser).
