BEFORE USING FOR THE FIRST TIME
Step 3. Salt Filling
This model has a water softener to soften hard water.
Please read these notes carefully for correct operation.
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.
This is achieved by adding a special salt to the water softener inside the dishwasher.
The required amount of salt is set up according to how hard your tap water is.
NOTE
Water softener salt can be purchased from Salt distributors.
■F
illing with Salt (Adding salt is only necessary in Hard water areas.)
Fill the regenerating salt container before starting the washing programme.
Once you have filled with salt you must run the Quick course immediately to remove salt and salt
water around the tub in order to prevent corrosion.
• Remove the lower rack and unscrew the cap of the salt container.
• Before using your dishwasher for the first time, it is necessary
to Pour 1.5kg of salt and 1 litre of water in to the container.
Otherwise salt refill lamp always remains on during operation,
unless the Hardness level is set to H0 (see page 14).
Use a funnel for ease and clean filling, ensuring that coarse salt
or regenerating salt intended for water softening is used.
• After filling, wipe off any spilled salt to seal the cap properly.
• Screw the cap tightly to prevent any suds from penetrating into
the container.
Step 4. Adding Rinse Aid
■F
or filling
To fill the Rinse Aid chamber, push the rinse aid button. Fill the container to the maximum level
with a good quality Rinse Aid, then close the cap.
The Rinse Aid is automatically dispensed during the final rinse cycle.
The dosage is factory set to suit most installations. If, after washing, you notice cloudy spots,
streaks or water marks on your glassware, it may be necessary to increase the setting. To do this,
remove the cap and rotate the indicator arrow to a higher setting then replace the cap . If the glass
is smeared or foam is present on the bottom of the glass or the bottom of the machine, select a
lower setting.

• The detergent is dispensed automatically
during the operation.
• The chamber lid remains open after operation.
There is a 45mm gain in height when the upper
rack is moved to the lower position.
After adjusting the rack levels, check that the
spray arms are free to rotate.
NOTE
Detergent Information
•Use only the detergent intended for
household dishwashers. (Ordinary handwashing detergent should not be used,
because the foam will interfere with
proper operation.)
•When using some dishwasher tablets,
the dispenser may not open due to their
excessive size.
•If this happens, place the tablet onto the
floor of the tub.
WARNING
•Before adjusting, ensure the rack is
empty of all crockery. Otherwise
crockery may get damaged or you may get
injured.
With the lower position of the upper rack,
check if the bottom part of upper rack
including spray arm is not disturbing items
on the lower rack.
•When the upper rack is in the lower
position, push in the upper rack first, and
the lower rack later.
(Pull out the lower rack first, and the upper
rack later.)
20
HOW TO USE AND OPERATE
WARNING
Push button to open
•The detergent used is a special
Dishwasher detergent and like all
household chemicals it should be treated
as harmful and kept out of reach of
children.
•After completion of the wash
programme, the detergent
compartment should be checked and
any remaining detergent removed.
CAUTION
Using combined detergent products
(ex.3 in 1)
•Some products integrated with rinse aid
work best with specific programmes only.
You will obtain optimum rinsing and drying
results by using conventional rinse aids.
•The use of Dishwasher Tablet products
may also cause the soap dispenser to
remain shut, therefore failing to dispense
the soap tablet.
These combined detergent products can
alternatively be placed next to the filter
base prior to starting the wash cycle.
Please contact the detergent manufacturer
if the drying performance is very poor or
you find white foam, when you use the
combined detergent products.
The rinse aid dial should be set to
minimum when using wash tablets with
built in rinse aid.
Excessive rinse aid can cause foaming at
the end of the wash.
We do not warrant the complaints that are
directly related to the use of these
products. Do not use liquid rinse aid if
using tablets containing a rinse aid agent.
Place proper detergent into this compartment
When using tablets, place them onto the
inside surface of the door, or the base of
the washer. The use of some combined
detergent/rinse aid tablets can cause the
dispenser to remain shut during the wash
due to their size. Do not use liquid rinse aid
if using tablets that have built in rinse aid.

HOW TO USE AND OPERATE
5. Refilling
■ For refilling Rinse Aid
■ For refilling Salt
Depending on the dosage setting and the
number of washes, the chamber may need to be
topped up, approximately once a month. The
rinse aid level can be checked by two methods.
When the salt container is empty, the salt refill
lamp will automatically turn on during
operation, unless the Hardness level has been
set to H0. (see page 14.) The salt should be
refilled after the cycle has finished.
We recommend the salt refilling should always
be carried out, as mentioned on page 15, prior
to starting the next operation. This will
immediately thin and drain away any excess
salt solution.
• By the indicator window on the dispenser
when the dishwasher door is fully open.
● Black indicates sufficient Rinse Aid
○ Clear indicates Rinse Aid required
Rinse-Aid Indicator
When the lamp is lit, this means that the
salt dispenser is almost empty.
Refill the Salt dispenser chamber as soon
as possible.
Adjust Lever (Rinse)
• By the light on the control panel, being lit,
when the dishwasher is working on.
When the lamp is lit, it means the rinse
aid is almost empty. Refill the Rinse Aid
chamber as soon as possible.
NOTE
• After filling with salt, it may take a little
while before the indicator light turns off.
• When the control is set to , it is not
necessary to fill up with salt as no salt is
consumed while the dishwasher is
operating, nor will the salt indicator light
up when the salt container is empty. If the
control is set between
and , then
salt must be added to the salt dispenser.
NOTE
Rinse Aid Information
• Rinse Aid is necessary to remove spots
and streaks of the water from dishes as
well as improved drying. Using the correct
amount will improve wash performance.
However, using too much can produce
excess foam leading to possible water
leaks.
WARNING
• Do
not pour detergent into the salt
dispenser. This will destroy the water
softener dispensing mechanism.

time. It can be interrupted or terminated by
simply opening the door.
■ The use of rinse aid is recommended for
optimum drying results.
■ Select the Extra Hot option to get better
drying results.

Eco
This program offers the most efficient energy
and water consumption for a good washing
performance on a moderately soiled load, but
compromises the drying result as it uses very
little energy.
Eco and Soft Spray program is the one to be
used for a normally soiled load.
This cycle washes the upper and lower racks at
different spray intensities. The lower rack is
washed with a strong spray for hard to clean
items, while the upper rack is washed with a soft
spray for more delicate items.
This provides optimum cleaning performance
for mixed loads, including fine china and
stemware.
Quick & Dry
This programme offers good washing
performance within 60 minutes.
To assist drying, we recommend to open the
door partially when you see small amounts of
wet streaks or drops after the cycle.
Opening the door right after the cycle may set
off the inbuilt High temperature alarm.
Auto
During the Auto programme, the degree of
soiling in the dishes is determined by the amount
of clouding in the water.
According to the degree of soiling, the
programme automatically adjusts the washing
time and temperature.
As a result, the energy and water consumption is
kept as low as possible.
The "F" on display means that the sensor is
sensing the status of the dishwasher.
Quick
Is best used for lightly soiled recently used
dishes and cutlery.
