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.
(Refer to the separate installation
instructions booklet)
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:

HOW TO FILL THE SALT CONTAINER
From a water hardness category of 1–2 (medium), before using the dishwasher, 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).
The dishwasher is equipped with an electronic control system that allows you to adjust the water softening system
to suit the local water hardness level.
Adjust the water softening system as follows:
If the water hardness level does not correspond to position h3 on the selector (setting on delivery) or if the water
hardness level changes:
• Press the PROGRAMME DELAY button for a few seconds, until the symbol H.- appears on the 3-PLACE
DISPLAY, followed by the set value.
• Press the PROGRAMME DELAY button again to select the required water hardness value (h.-1 ..h.-5)
according to the table below.
• To exit the programming mode press the SET PAUSE button or simply wait approx. 2 seconds without
pressing any button.
Setting must be carried out with the door closed; it cannot be carried out with the selector set to “soak”.
