Set the water softener
The dishwasher is equipped with a water
softener designed to remove minerals
and salts from the water supply, which
would have a detrimental or adverse effect on the operation of the appliance.
The higher the content of these minerals
and salts, the harder your water is. Water
hardness is measured in equivalent
scales, German degrees (dH°), French
degrees (°TH) and mmol/l (millimol per
litre - international unit for the hardness
of water).
The softener should be adjusted according to the hardness of the water in your
area. Your local Water Authority can advise you on the hardness of the water in
your area.
The water softener must be set in
two ways: manually, using the water
hardness dial and electronically.

Use of dishwasher salt
Only use salt specifically designed for
use in dishwashers. All other types of salt
not specifically designed for use in a
dishwasher, especially table salt, will
damage the water softener. Only fill with
salt just before starting one of the complete washing programmes. This will
prevent any grains of salt or salty water,
which may have been spilt, remaining on
the bottom of the machine for any period
of time, which may cause corrosion.
To fill:
1. Open the door, remove the lower
basket and unscrew the cap of the
salt container by turning it anticlockwise.
2. Pour 1 litre of water inside the
container (this is necessary only
before filling with salt for the first
time) .
3. Using the funnel provided, pour in
the salt until the container is full.
4. Replace the cap making sure that
there is no trace of salt on the screw
thread or on the gasket.
5. Replace the cap tightly turning it
clockwise until it stops with a click.
Do not worry if water overflows from
the unit when filling with salt, this is
quite normal.

The salt indicator light on the control
panel can remain illuminated for 2-6
hours after the salt has been
replenished, assuming the
dishwasher remains switched on. If
you are using salts that take longer

The dispenser holds about 110 ml of
rinse aid, which is sufficient for between 16 and 40 washing cycles,
depending upon the dosage setting.
3. Ensure that the lid is closed after every refill.
Increase the dose if there are drops of
water or lime spots on the dishes after
Reduce it if there are sticky whitish
streaks on the dishes or a bluish film on
glassware or knife blades.
Clean up any rinse aid spilt during
filling with an absorbent cloth to
avoid excess foaming during the
next wash.
According to the finish and drying results
obtained, adjust the dose of rinse aid by
means of the 6 position selector (position 1 minimum dosage, position 6 maximum dosage).
The dose is factory set in position 4.

If possible, position the machine next to
a water tap and a drain.
This dishwasher is designed to be fitted
under a kitchen counter or work surface.
Attention! Carefully follow the instructions on the enclosed template for building in the dishwasher and fitting the
furniture panel.
No further openings for the venting of the
dishwasher are required, but only to let
the water fill and drain hose and power
supply cable pass through.
The dishwasher incorporates adjustable
feet to allow the adjustment of the

Fixing to the adjacent units
The dishwasher must be secured
against tilting.
Therefore make sure that the counter it
is fixed under, is suitably secured to a
fixed structure (adjacent kitchen units
cabinets, wall).
Good levelling is essential for correct
closure and sealing of the door.
When the appliance is correctly levelled,
the door will not catch on either side of
the cabinet .
If the door does not close correctly,
loosen or tighten the adjustable feet until
the machine is perfectly level.
Water connection
Water supply connection
This dishwasher may be fed with either
hot (max. 60°) or cold water. Nevertheless we advise you a cold water supply.
A hot water supply is not always efficient
with very soiled crockery as it shortens
the washing programmes a lot.
For making the connection itself, the
coupling nut fitted to the machine’s supply hose is designed to screw onto a
3/4" gas thread spout or to a purpose
made quick-coupling tap such as the

limits given in the "Technical data". Your

hoses which can be turned either to the
left or the right to suit the installation by
means of the locknut. The locknut
must be correctly fitted to avoid water leaks.
34 electrolux water connection
Attention! NOT all models of dishwashers have fill and drain hoses
provided with a locknut. In this case,
this facility is not available.
If the machine is connected to new pipes
or pipes which have not been used for a
long time, you should run the water for a
few minutes before connecting the inlet
DO NOT use connection hoses
which have previously been used for
an old appliance.
This appliance has been fitted with
safety features which will prevent
the water used in the appliance from
returning back into the drinking water system. This appliance complies
with the applicable plumbing regulations.
Water inlet hose with safety valve
After connecting the double-walled water inlet hose, the safety valve is next to
the tap. Therefore the water inlet hose is
only under pressure while the water is
running. If the water inlet hose starts to
leak during this operation, the safety
valve cuts off the running water.
Please take care when installing the water inlet hose:
• The electrical cable for the safety valve
is in the double-walled water inlet
hose. Do not immerse the water inlet
hose or the safety valve in water.
• If water inlet hose or the safety valve
is damaged, remove the mains plug
• A water inlet hose with safety valve
must only be replaced by the Service
Force Centre.
Warning! Dangerous voltage
Water outlet hose connection
The end of the drain hose can be connected in the following ways:
1. To the sink outlet spigot, securing it
to the underside of the work surface.
This will prevent waste water from
the sink running into the machine.
2. To a stand pipe provided with venthole, minimum internal diameter 4
The waste connection must be at a
maximum height of 60 cm from the bottom of the dishwasher.
electrical connection electrolux 35
Likewise the internal diameter of the
couplings used for connections to the
waste outlet must be no smaller than the
diameter of the hose provided.
When connecting the drain hose to an
under sink trap spigot, the entire plastic membrane (A) must be removed. Failure to remove all the membrane will result in food particles building
up over time eventually blocking the
dishwasher drain hose spigot
The drain hose can face either to the
right or left of the dishwasher
Ensure the hose is not bent or squashed
as this could prevent or slow down the
discharge of water.
The sink plug must not be in place when
the machine is draining as this could
cause the water to syphon back into the
The total length of the drain hose, including any extension you might add,
must be no longer than 4 metres. The
internal diameter of the extension hose
must be no smaller than the diameter of
the hose provided.
Electrical connection
Safety standards require the appliance to be earthed.
Our appliances are supplied with a
security device to protect against
the return of dirty water back into
the machine. If the spigot of your
sink has a "no return valve" incorporated this can prevent the correct
draining of your dishwasher. We
therefore advise you to remove it.
