4 Setting the water hardness level for the water softener
Softening the water
Dishwashers require fairly soft water. If the hardness exceeds 6°dH lime scale will form on crockery. To avoid
this an automatic system adds a special salt to soften the water so that you obtain the best possible cleaning
and drying performance.
To find out the hardness level of your water contact your local water company, or use the enclosed test strip to
measure the water hardness:
a
Dishes break
Possible causes
- Load the dishwasher as suggested in the directions.
- Overloaded baskets
- Do not overload the dish baskets. Dishes may hit against
each other and break.
Foam
How to fix these problems
- The dishes were pre-washed by
hand with a large amount of dish
detergent
- Dishes do not need to be pre-washed. Coarse dirt may be
removed with a dishcloth, or you may hold the dishes under
running water.
- Rinse aid has accidentally leaked
into the machine
- If rinse aid has been spilled during refilling, remove the agent
using a paper cloth or sponge.
- The cover of the rinse aid
dispenser was not closed.
- Always take care to ensure that the lid is closed after refilling
the rinse aid dispenser.

Filling the dishwasher salt
Attention
Only use special dishwasher salt in your machine to
soften the water.
The manufacturer is not liable for damages resulting from
the use of the wrong salt type.
Do not use coarse grained salt. Small grains or powdered
salt is more easily soluble. Never use culinary or table
salt. These types of salt do not dissolve in water easily
and will damage the function of the softening device.

Begin a washing programme immediately after filling the
salt container. The washing program prevents damage
to the machine which may be caused by any spilled salt
solution.
After the first washing cycle, the salt level indicator light
will go out.
- Dish items/parts made from
aluminium
- The lid of the salt container is not
closing properly.
- The hardness is not selected
properly; too little salt is being used.
How to fix these problems
- Dishes and cutlery of this type are not suited to dishwashers.
- Check whether the lid of the salt container is firmly closed.
Use the funnel to pour in special salt. Begin the pre-wash
programme right after filling in salt. After the program is
complete, check whether the lid may have loosened.
- Check the set values with the stated values from the local
water board.
- Detergents are being stored under
unfavourable conditions
- Detergents should not be stored longer than 2 months.
Store detergents in a dry location. Close the lid of the
container carefully.
- Overloaded baskets
- Take care to ensure that individual glasses and dishes do
not touch. They may hit against each other during the
washing process, causing scratched.
20
- Food leftovers are staying on the
dishes for too long
- The machine is not grounded
properly
- Cutlery parts from low-grade rustfree steel.
- Dish items with rust stains
Filling the rinse aid dispenser
- Remove coarse dirt under running water and carry out the
pre-wash program with an interval of 2 days without a
detergent.
Rinse aids allow washing water to rinse off more cleanly
and prevent watermarks or streaks on the dishes.
Only use rinse aids suited to use in dishwashers.
- Check the grounding of the system. Static electricity may
eat holes into metal and cause irreparable damages.
- Note If you use „2 in 1“ or „3 in 1“ detergents / tabs, you do not
need an additional rinse aid.
B
- Rust on such items cannot be avoided. Cutlery or dishes of
this type is not suited to dishwashers.
Open the rinse aid dispenser by pressing the lock ( B )
- Rusty dishes may „infect“ other items. Cutlery or dishes of
this type is not suited to dishwashers.

- Spray arm nozzles are clogged.
19
How to fix these problems
- Ensure that the detergent dispenser is dry before filling it.
- Pour the detergent in just before washing.
- When loading the dishwasher, take care to ensure that you
do not accidentally open the lid.
- Store detergents in a dry location. Close the lid of the
container carefully.
- Clean the spray arms as described in the manual
1 25cm³
15cm³
5cm³ 2
Open the detergent container by pushing the lock to the
right ( A ).
Marking lines on the inside of the detergent container aid
in providing the correct amount of detergent.
The detergent container holds a total of 40 cm³ of detergent
( 1 ).
When the dishwasher is fully loaded and the dishes are
very dirty, we recommend filling the detergent container
up to the 25 cm³ mark. When the dishes are less dirty,
it is generally sufficient to fill the detergent up to the 15
cm³ mark.
If your dishes have been in the dishwasher for some time
without being washed, additionally fill the small container
up to the top ( 2 ).
The detergent amounts for the individual cleaning
programmes are shown in the cleaning table.
Deviations are possible depending on how dirty the dishes
are and on how hard the water is in your location.
8
Detergents
There are 3 types of detergents:
1. Phosphate and containing chlorine
2. Phosphate containing, no chlorine
3. Neither containing phosphate nor chlorine
The new compact powders are normally 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 only 6°dH. 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 fully removed. Choose a programme with a higher wash temperature.
- The hardness is not selected
properly; too little salt is being
used.
- Check the set values with the stated values from the local
water board.
- Salt loss
- Check whether the lid of the salt container is firmly closed.
Use the funnel to pour in special salt. Begin the pre-wash
programme right after filling in salt. After the program is
complete, check whether the lid may have loosened.
Attention
Always store your detergents in locations which are cool, dry and out of the reach of children.
Pour the detergent into the detergent dispenser before turning the machine on.
Too much detergent may mean that the detergent does not dissolve properly and dishes are
scratched.
TWO-IN-ONE AND THREE-IN-ONE DETERGENTS
You will obtain the best results from your dishwasher if you use a separate detergent, rinse
aid and water-softening salt.
Detergent manufacturers also produce combined detergents known as ‘two-in-one’ and ‘threein-one’.
Three-in-one: These products contain detergent, rinse aid and water-softening salt.
Two-in-one: These products contain detergent and either rinse aid or water-softening salt.
Smell
Possible causes
How to fix these problems
- Smell of new machine
- The smell of a new machine disappears after a few washing
runs.
- Filters are dirty
- Clean all strainers and filters as described in the manual.
- Dishes stand in the machine for a
few days without being washed
- Remove coarse dirt under running water and carry out the
pre-wash program with an interval of 2 days without a
detergent. Close the door to avoid the development of
smells.
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 that
you use 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: 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, contact with the hands
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 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: 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:
9
Milky appearance or blue
shimmering deposit on the
glasses (glass corrosion)
Possible causes
- Excessive use of detergent when
water hardness is low, cleaning
temperature is too high
How to fix these problems
- Choose a programme with a low temperature and add a
smaller amount of detergent. Check the set water hardness
against the stated values from the local water board.
Rust stains, destruction
of the surface
Possible causes
- The lid of the salt container is not
closing properly.
How to fix these problems
- Salt can destroy metal surfaces and cause rust damage.
- Check whether the lid of the salt container is firmly closed.
Use the funnel to pour in special salt. Begin the pre-wash
programme right after filling in salt. After the program is
complete, check whether the lid may have loosened.
18
The dishes are not becoming dry
Possible causes
How to fix these problems
- Improper loading
- Load the dishwasher as suggested in this booklet.
- Insufficient rinse aid supply
- Increase the amount of rinse aid / refill the rinse aid dispenser.
- Dishes are removed too soon
- Do not empty your dishwasher immediately after washing.
Open the door slightly so that the steam can escape. Begin
with unloading the dishwasher when the dishes are only
hand warm. Empty the lower basket first. This prevents
water from dripping off dishes in the upper basket.
- Wrong programme selection
- In short period programmes, the wash temperature and
therefore the cleaning performance is lower. Choose a
programme with a longer washing time.
- Using cutlery with a low surface
quality
- Water drainage is more difficult with these items. Cutlery or
dishes of this type is not suited to dishwashers.
Tea, coffee or other stains
Possible causes
How to fix these problems
- Wrong programme selection
- Select a programme which washes at a higher temperature
or takes longer.
- Detergent is moist or clumping
- Bleaches in cleaners lose their efficacy when stored under
unfavourable conditions. Store detergents in a dry location.
Close the lid of the container carefully.
- Using cutlery with a low surface
quality
- Cleaning of these items is made difficult by their surface
structure. Cutlery or dishes of this type is not suited to
dishwashers.
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, contact with the hands
may leave 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 water-softening 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.
If you stop using this kind of detergent:
- Ensure that the salt and rinse aid dispensers are full.
- 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.
