BEFORE USING THE DISHWASHER/
CONNECTIONS
1. Removing the packaging and controls:
After unpacking, make sure that the dishwasher is
undamaged and that the door closes correctly.
If in doubt, contact a qualified technician or your
local retailer.
• Keep the packaging materials (plastic bags,
polystyrene parts, etc.) out of reach of children, as
they are potentially dangerous.
• This dishwasher has been factory tested to ensure
it functions correctly.
Such testing may leave slight water marks that will
disappear with the first wash.
2. Water and electrical connections:
All water and electrical connections must be
carried out by a qualified technician in compliance
with the manufacturer's instructions (refer to the
enclosed installation booklet) and current local
safety regulations.
The appliance must only be used in the household
for the prescribed uses.
Do not use the dishwasher if it has been damaged in
transit. Consult your local retailer or our After-Sales
Service.
• Fix the drain hose to the spigot with a clamp to
prevent it from coming off during operation.
For appliances with water-stop system only: if the
water connections are made correctly, the waterstop system safeguards your home against damage
caused by flooding.
4. Electrical connection:
• Closely adhere to local Electricity Board
regulations.
• Voltage information is shown on the rating plate
mounted inside the door on the right hand side.
• The appliance must be earthed as prescribed by law.
• Do not use extension leads or multiple adapters.
• Before carrying out maintenance, disconnect the
mains plug.
• If necessary, the power cable may be replaced with
one the same obtained from our After-Sales
Service. The power cable must only be replaced by
a qualified technician.
• For Austria: if the apparatus is series connected to
a fault current switch, this must be sensitive to the
pulsating current.
(Refer to the separate installation
instructions booklet)
3. Water inlet and drain:
• Observe any special regulations issued by your local
Water Board.
Water supply pressure: 0.3 - 10 bar.
• Make sure the inlet and drain hoses are kink-free
and are not crushed.
• If the hose length is not sufficient, please contact
your local dealer or our After-Sales Service.
• The inlet hose must be securely clamped to the
water tap to prevent leaks.
• The inlet water temperature varies according to
the model installed. Inlet hose marked “25°C Max”:
maximum temperature 25°C.
All other models: maximum temperature 60°C.
• When installing the appliance, make sure the drain
water discharges correctly (if necessary, remove
the wire gauze from the sink siphon).

1. Remove the fuse cover (A) and fuse (B).
2. Fit replacement 13A fuse into fuse cover.
3. Refit both into plug.
Important:
The fuse cover must be refitted when changing a fuse and if the fuse

• If ecological energy sources are available,
such as solar panel heating, heat pumps or
centralised heating systems, the appliance may be
connected to the hot water mains up to a maximum
temperature of 60°C. Make sure the water inlet
hose is of the correct type. Refer to the
“Connections” chapter in these user instructions.

children (e.g. danger of suffocation), break the lock
of the door so that it can no longer be closed.
4. Child safety:
• Children must not be allowed to play with the
dishwasher.
• Store the detergent, rinse aid and salt in a dry place
out of the reach of children.

From a water hardness category of 1–2 (medium), before using the
dishwasher for the first time, fill the salt container with regeneration salt
(to find out the hardness level of water in your area, contact your local
Water Board or check the last bill you received).
If the water hardness level does not correspond to position 3 on the
selector (setting on delivery) or if the water hardness level changes:
Setting the correct water hardness level:
Set the water hardness by turning the selector inside the salt container.
Use the table below to set the dial to the correct setting:

How to fill the salt container
Warning: only use regeneration salts for use domestic dishwashers!
Do not fill the salt container with unsuitable substances, such as detergent,
as this will cause irreparable damage to the water softener system.
1. Remove the lower rack.
2. Unscrew the cap by turning it counter-clockwise.
3. When first using the dishwasher: fill the salt container to the rim
with water.
4. Fill the salt container with regeneration salt to the rim (using the
funnel provided) (when filling for the first time min. 1.5 kg and
max. 2 kg) and stir with a spoon handle.
5. Screw the cap back on by turning it clockwise.
6. Fit the lower rack.
7. If regeneration salt is to be added, immediately start a wash
programme (rinsing alone is not sufficient) in order to eliminate
any residual saline solution straight away and avoid corrosion.
Salt level indicator
The dishwasher is equipped with an electric or visual salt level
indicator (depending on the model installed).
Electric indicator
The salt level indicator lamp on the control panel lights up when the
salt container is empty.
Visual indicator
The float is clearly visible in the cap window when the salt container is
full (see photo).
The float lowers and is no longer visible when the salt container is empty.

HOW TO FILL THE RINSE AID DISPENSER
The rinse aid facilitates drying and prevents the formation of unsightly

for use in domestic dishwashers.
1. Unscrew the cap A by turning it counter-clockwise (see drawing).
2. Fill the dispenser with rinse aid up to the dotted line “max”
(approx. 140 cc).
Immediately wipe away any rinse aid spilt accidentally! This prevents
the formation of excess suds which may spoil washing results.
3. Close the cover.
