detect this and E:01 icon will flash on
the Program indicator. As long as the
overflowing continues safety measures
will become active and try to discharge
the water. If overflowing stops and
safety is assured, E:01 icon will
disappear. If E:01 does not disappear,
there is a permanent fault. In this
case the authorized service should be
contacted.

7. DETERGENT
You can use powder, liquid/gel or tablet
detergents in the machine.
Only use in the machine
the detergents produced
particularly for use
with dishwashers. We
recommend you not to use
detergents that contain
chlorine and phosphate
as they are harmful for the
environment.
A
C
7.1 ADDING DETERGENT
C
A
Pay attention to the
warnings on the detergent
packaging to get better
washing and drying results.
Contact the manufacturer
of the detergent for further
questions.

Do not put solvents into the
detergent dispenser. There
is the risk of explosion!
Put the detergent into the detergent
dispenser just before operating the
machine as illustrated below.
1. Push the latch to right to open the
detergent dispenser lid (A).
2. Put suggested amount of powder,
liquid/gel or tablet detergent in the
reservoir.
29
USA
Inside the detergent
dispenser there are level
markings that help you
use appropriate amount of
powder detergent. When full,
the detergent dispenser will
contain 1.5 Ounces (42.5g)
of detergent. Fill detergent
up to .5 Ounces (14.2g) or
.85 ounces (24.1g) level
marks in the detergent
dispenser according to
fullness of the machine and/
or soiling degree of the
dishes. One tablet is enough
if you are using detergent
tablets.
must also be used together with the
detergent if the water hardness level is
above the mentioned level.
The best washing
performance in dishwashers
is obtained by using
detergent, rinse aid and
water softening salt
individually.
3. Push the lid of the detergent
dispenser to close it. A "click" will
be heard when the lid is closed.

Use powder or liquid/
gel detergent in short
programs without prewash
since the solubility of
the tablet detergent
changes depending on the
temperature and time.
7.2 TABLET DETERGENTS
Observe the instructions of
the detergent manufacturer
on the package when using
tablet detergents.
Contact the detergent
manufacturer if your dishes
are wet and/or if you notice
limescale spots particularly
on your glasses after
the washing program is
over when using a tablet
detergent.
When you switch to powder
detergent from tablet detergent:
1. Make sure that salt (Select Models)
and rinse aid reservoirs are full.
2. Set the water hardness to the
highest level and perform an empty
run.
3. After the empty washing cycle,
review the user manual and
readjust the water hardness level
so as to suit the water supply.
In addition to the conventional
tablet detergents, there are also
commercially available detergent
tablets that show water softening salt
and/or rinse aid effect. Some types
of these detergents contain specialpurpose components such as glass
and stainless steel protectors. These
tablets show their effects up to a
certain water hardness level (59 gpg).

4. Make the appropriate rinse aid
settings.
3. Slightly press the point (B) of the
reservoir lid to close it.
7.3 RINSE AID
C
The rinse aid used in
dishwashers is a special
combination that aims to
increase drying efficiency
and prevent water or lime
stains on the washed items.
For this reason, care must
be paid to have rinse aid in
the rinse aid reservoir and
to use rinse aids produced
specially for dishwashers
only.
4. If there are stains on dishware
items after washing, level must
be increased and if there is a blue
trace after wiping them by hand, it
must be decreased. This is set to
position 3 as factory default.
C
1. Open the lid of the rinse aid
reservoir with the help of the latch.
C
2. Fill the reservoir until “MAX” level.
31
USA
The rinse aid adjustment is
described under "Adjusting
the amount of rinse aid" in
the section for operating the
machine.
Wipe clean any spilled
rinse aid outside the
reservoir. Rinse aid that
spilled accidentally will
cause foaming and it will
eventually decrease washing
performance.
8. ADJUSTING THE WATER SOFTENING SYSTEM
(Select Models)
Cleaning, rinsing and drying performance of your dishwasher will increase when
water softening system is adjusted properly.
Adjust the new water hardness level according to the Water hardness level
instruction in this booklet.
Use the test strip supplied with the product according to the steps given below to
determine hardness level of your supply water.
After determining hardness level of the supply water:
1. Switch on your machine, press adn hold the Menu key
2. Press the settings menu key for 3 seconds to enter the Settings Menu.
3. Using <- and +> keys, proceed until the water hardness setting indicator
becomes on (“r” position will be displayed).
4. Using the Selection key, adjust water hardness level according to the hardness
of the supply water. For correct setting please see “Water hardness level setting
table”.
5. Press the Menu key to exit the settings menu. Your setting will be saved
automatically.

If the hardness level of the supply water is above 154 gpg (grains per gallon) or if
you are using well water, then it is recommended to use water purification devices
and special filters.
If the hardness level of the supply water is below 22 gpg, there is no need to use
salt in your dishwasher. If this is the case, “No Salt Warning Indicator” (if any)
illuminates continuously on the panel of your machine.
32
USA
If the water hardness level adjustment
is set to level 1, the “No salt warning
indicator” will illuminate continuously
although it is not necessary to use salt.
If you use salt under this condition,
salt will not be consumed and the Salt
indicator will not illuminate.
If you move your dishwasher
to another house, it is
necessary to readjust water
hardness level of your
machine by considering the
information given above
according to the hardness
level of the supply water
in your new location. Your
machine will display the
most recently adjusted water
hardness level.
C
C
Salt reservoir will be filled
with water when you start
the product. For this reason,
add salt before operating the
machine.
1. Take the lower basket out to add
softening salt.
2. Turn the salt reservoir lid counterclockwise to open it (A, B).
9. FILLING THE DISHWASHER
SALT DISPENSER
(Select Models)
Water softening system needs to be
regenerated in order for the unit to
operate with the same performance
continuously. Dishwasher salt is used
for this purpose.
Use only special softening
salts produced particularly
for the dishwashers in your
machine.
C
C
3. Add 4 cups of water to salt
reservoir of your machine only in
initial use (C).
It is recommended to use
granule or powder softening
salts in the water softening
system. Do not use salts
that do not completely
dissolve in water such
as table salt or rock salt.
Otherwise the performance
of the system may
deteriorate in time.
33
USA
4. Fill the salt reservoir with salt by
using the salt funnel (D). To speed
up dissolution rate of salt in water,

You can put about 4.4
Pounds of softening salt into
the salt reservoir.
5. Replace the lid and tighten it when
the reservoir is full.

You need to add salt right
before starting the machine.
Thus, the overflowing
salty water will be flushed
immediately, preventing
the risk of corrosion in
machine. In cases where
you would not start washing
immediately, run your
machine empty in the
shortest program.
Since different salt brands
in the market have different
particle sizes and since the
water hardness may vary,
dissolution of the salt in
water may take a couple
of hours. Therefore, Salt
Indicator remains on for a
while after adding salt into
the machine.

program with short duration, drying performance will also be low. Select
program with longer duration for a better drying performance.
Surface quality of the kitchen utensils is deteriorated. >>> Desired washing
performance can not be obtained for kitchen utensils with deteriorated
surfaces and it is not suitable to use such utensils in terms of hygiene
as well. Also, water can not flow easily on deteriorated surfaces. It is not
recommended to wash such kitchen utensils in dishwasher.
It is normal that drying complaints can be experienced with nonstick kitchen utensils. It is associated with the structure of non-stick.
