Safety instructions
Delivery
Immediately check the packaging and
dishwasher for any damage which may
have been caused in transit. Do not use
a damaged appliance, but consult your
supplier.
Please dispose of packaging material
properly.
The corrugated cardboard consists
mainly of waste paper.
The polystyrene moulded parts have
been foamed without any CFCs.
The polyethylene film (PE) consists
partly of secondary raw material.
The wooden frames (if fitted) are made
of residual wood and are untreated.
The hoops (if fitted) consist of
polypropylene (PP).
Installation
Install and connect the appliance
according to the installation and
assembly instructions.
The dishwasher must NOT be
connected to the power supply during
installation.
Ensure that the protective conductor
system of the domestic electricity
supply has been installed correctly.
Electrical connection conditions must
correspond with the specifications on
the rating plate of the dishwasher.
Built-under and built-in appliances
should always be installed under a
continuous work surface which is
attached to the adjacent cupboards, in
order to ensure that the appliance is
entirely stable.
4
After the appliance has been installed,
the mains plug should still be easily
accessible.
Not on all models:
The plastic housing on the water input
contains an electrically operated valve.
The connecting wires are inside the
inlet hose. Do not cut through this hose
and do not immerse the plastic housing
in water.
Warning
For safety reasons, if the appliance is not
fitted in a recess, thereby making a side
wall accessible, the door hinge area
should be covered at the side.
(Risk of injury)
Covers are available as optional
accessories from customer services or
specialist stores.
During normal use
Warning
Knives and other utensils with sharp points
must be loaded in the basket with their
points down or in a horizontal position.
Use the dishwasher solely in a
domestic environment and for its
designated purpose: washing
household tableware and other utensils.
Do not place any heavy objects or
stand on the door when it is open. The
appliance could tip forward.
The water inside the dishwasher is not
suitable for drinking.
Do not use solvents of any kind inside
your dishwasher. They could cause an
explosion.
Open the door very carefully if the
dishwasher is operating. There is a risk
of water squirting out.
en
If your family includes children
Do not permit small children to play with
or operate the dishwasher.
Keep children away from detergents
and rinse-aids.
Keep small children away from the
open door of the dishwasher. There
could still be some detergent left inside.
If a fault occurs
Repairs or other work on the
dishwasher should only be carried out
by a qualified specialist.
The dishwasher must be disconnected
from the electricity supply before any
repairs or other work are started. Pull
the mains plug out of the wall socket or
switch off at the fuse box. Grasp the
plug to remove it from the socket; do
not tug on the cable. Turn the water off
at the tap.
When disposing of old
appliances
Appliances that have reached the end
of their service life should be rendered
inoperable in order to exclude the
possibility of subsequent accidents. Pull
the mains plug out of the wall socket,
cut through the connecting cable and
disable the door lock.
Take the appliance to a designated
waste disposal centre.

Water softener
In order to rinse dishes and glasses
satisfactorily, the dishwasher requires soft
water, i.e. containing little or no lime,
otherwise water stains will be left behind
on crockery and glasses, etc.
If the tap water exceeds a certain level of
hardness, it must be softened, i.e.
decalcified, so that it can be used in the
dishwasher.
This is achieved by adding a special salt
to the water softener inside the
dishwasher.
The water softener, that is the required
amount of salt, is set up according to how
hard the tap water is.
Setting up the water softener
Determine the level of hardness of your
tap water. Your local water company or
service agent can help you with this.
Identify setting from the following water
hardness table.
Hold down the programme button B
and switch on the main switch 1 ,
then release the buttons.
The display 4 flashes and buttons
A and B illuminate.
(Hardness value 2 was set at the
factory).
To change the setting: Press
programme button B .
Each depression of the button
increases the set value by one (0–3).
If buttons A , B and C illuminate,
the maximum hardness value has been
reached.
If the hardness value is now increased
again, the illuminated buttons go out
and the hardness value is set to 0 (no
buttons illuminated).
Switch off the mains switch 1 .
The set value is stored in the appliance.
Approx. 4 litres of water are required for
regenerating the water softening system.
The overall water consumption per load
can therefore be increased by between 0
and a maximum of 4 litres according to the
water hardness setting.

Filling the special salt
container
How the salt works
While washing is taking place, salt is
automatically rinsed out of the salt
container into the water softener where it
dissolves the lime in the water.
The dissolved lime is pumped out of the
dishwasher. The water softening system is
then ready for the next load.
This process of regeneration can only
function when the salt is dissolved in
water.
Unscrew the lid on the salt container
24
.
Before you use the dishwasher for the first
time, pour approx. 1 litre of water into the
salt container.
Use the enclosed salt filler.
Refill with salt (do not use edible salt)
until the salt dispenser is full (max. 1.5 kg).
When the salt dispenser is being refilled,
water is displaced and drains away.
Therefore always refill the salt dispenser
immediately before switching on the
dishwasher (to prevent corrosion). As a
result, the overflowing salt solution will be
immediately diluted and rinsed out. Then
remove salt residue from the filler area and
screw on the dispenser cover, ensuring
that it is not fitted askew.
The LOW SALT indicator 4 on the front
panel will light up initially but will extinguish
again after a short period when the salt
solution has become sufficiently
concentrated.
If the switch is set to ”0”, it is
not necessary to add any salt,
as none is consumed while the
dishwasher is operating. If the
switch is set between ”1” and
”3”, then salt must be added.
Do not pour detergent into the
container for special salt. This
would destroy the water
softener.
LOW SALT indicator
* on applicable models
Salt should be added as soon as the LOW
SALT indicator 4 in the fascia panel
illuminates. For models that do not have
an indicator in the fascia panel, salt should
be added as soon as the coloured dot in
the lid on the salt container 24 is no
longer visible.

en
Filling the rinse-aid
container
The purpose of a rinse-aid is to prevent
the formation of water marks on tableware
and utensils, and to ensure that glasses
are clean and sparkling. The rinse-aid is
consumed during the washing process.
Fold back the lid on the rinse-aid
container 29 .
To open the lid, press the mark on
the rinse-aid lid and simultaneously lift
.
the lid off the lug
Adjusting the amount of
rinse-aid
The amount of rinse-aid added to the
water can be varied by adjusting the
stepless control. The rinse-aid control has
been set to ”4” in the factory.
Do not alter the setting of the rinse-aid
control unless streaks (turn knob towards
”–”) or water marks (turn knob towards ”+”)
are left on the dishes.
29
rinse–aid control
Pour the rinse-aid into the filler hole
until the level indicator turns dark.
Close the lid, ensuring that you hear it
snap closed.
LOW RINSE–AID indicator
As long as the LOW RINSE-AID indicator
on the front panel 5 or on the
dispenser 29 is dark, there is sufficient
rinse-aid in the dishwasher.
Note
Use only rinse aid for domestic
dishwashers. Spilt rinse aid
may result in excessive foam
formation in the next rinse
cycle. Therefore, remove any
spilt rinse aid with a cloth.

Unsuitable dishes
You should not clean the
following items in your
dishwasher:
Cutlery and dishes made of wood. They
will leach out and become unsightly; the
utilised adhesives are also not suitable
for the dishwasher temperatures.
Delicate décor glasses, craft dishes and
vases, special antique or irreplaceable
dishes. These décor items are not
dishwasher-safe.
Plastic parts, copper and tin dishes
sensitive to hot water are not suitable
either. Overglazed patterns, aluminium
and silver parts tend to become
discoloured and fade during the rinsing
cycle. Even some types of glass (e.g.
crystal glass objects) may become cloudy
after many rinse cycles. Completely
absorbent materials, such as sponges and
cloths must not be cleaned in the
dishwasher either.
Recommendation:
In future buy only dishes which are
identified as dishwasher-safe.
Damage to glassware and other
dishes
Possible causes:
type of glass or manufacturing process
chemical composition of detergent
water temperature and duration of
dishwasher programme.
Suggested remedy:
Use glassware or porcelain dishes that
have been marked ’dishwasher–proof’
by the manufacturer.
Use a mild detergent that is described
as ’kind to dishes’. If necessary, seek
further information from detergent
manufacturers.
Select a programme with as low a
temperature and as short a duration as
possible.
To prevent damage, take glass and
cutlery out of the dishwasher as soon
as possible after the programme has
ended.
Note
Dishes which are soiled with
ash, wax, lubricating grease or
ink must not be cleaned in the
dishwasher.

Loading the dishwasher
Scrape off any large amounts of left-over
food. It is not necessary to rinse the dishes
under running water.
Place objects in the dishwasher in such a
way that
items such as cups, glasses, pots/pans,
etc. are stood upside down,
curved items, or those with recesses,
should be at a slant so that water can
run off,
they are stacked securely and cannot
tip over,
they do not prevent the spray arms from
rotating while washing takes place.
Very small items should not be washed in
the dishwasher as they could easily fall out
of the baskets.
Removing the dishes
To prevent water dripping from the top
basket onto the dishes in the lower basket,
we recommend that you empty the lower
basket first and then the top basket.
Cups and glasses
Upper basket
20
Cutlery
Cutlery should always be inserted in
random order with the handles pointing
downwards (take care with knife blades!).
This enables the jet of water to reach the
individual items more easily.
To prevent the risk of injury, place long and
pointed implements and knives on the
shelf (some models) or knife shelf
(available as an accessory).

Large baking sheets or grids can be
cleaned with the aid of the special spray
head. Remove the top basket and attach
the spray head as shown in the drawing.
Arrange the baking sheets as illustrated,
so that the jet of water can reach all parts
of them (max. 2 baking sheets and
2 grids).

Shelf *
* not on all models
Lean tall glasses and those with long
stems against the shelf – not against other
items to be washed.
The top basket can be inserted on either
its upper or lower rollers, according to
requirement. This enables more height to
be gained for bigger dishes in either the
top or bottom basket.
Place glasses, cups and small bowls on
the additional cup rack. The additional cup
rack can be swivelled in or out as required.

Detergents
Information about detergents
You can use any brand of liquid or powder
detergent, as well as tablets, that have
been specifically designed for use in
domestic dishwashers. (Do not use normal
washing-up liquid!)
Detergent compartment with
measuring marks
The side of the detergent compartment is
marked with lines to help you determine
how much powder to add.
The capacity of the detergent container is
15 ml up to the bottom line and 25 ml up to
the middle line. When the compartment is
full it contains 40 ml.
Nowadays there are three types of
dishwasher detergent available:
1. those containing phosphates and
chlorine,
2. those containing phosphates but no
chlorine,
3. those containing neither phosphates
nor chlorine.
When a phosphate-free detergent is used
in conjunction with hard water, there is a
greater possibility that white marks will be
left behind on crockery and glasses, etc.
These can be avoided by pouring an
increased amount of detergent into the
dispenser.
Chlorine-free detergents have a reduced
bleaching effect. This can mean that tea
stains are not completely removed or
plastic items become discoloured.
This can be resolved by:
– selecting a higher temperature
programme, or
– increasing the amount of detergent, or
– using a detergent that contains chlorine.
Check the label on the detergent
packaging to determine whether a
particular product is suitable for use with
silverware.
If you have any further questions, we
recommend that you contact the customer
advice departments of the various
detergent manufacturers.

Important
If the lid on the detergent compartment is closed, press the
release lever to open the flap.
Adding detergent
Tip detergent powder into the
corresponding compartment 30 .
Please observe the manufacturer’s
instructions printed on the detergent
packaging when determining the
correct dosage.
When you select the INTENSIVE
programme, tip an extra 10–15 ml of
detergent onto the inside surface of the
door.
en
Reduce costs!
If your dishes are only
moderately dirty, you may be
able to use less detergent than
recommended.
Close the lid on the detergent
compartment.
Press down the lid (1) until it clicks
shut (2).
CAUTION
IMPORTANT NOTE
ON THE USE OF
COMBINED CLEANING
PRODUCTS
Please note the following when using
”combined cleaning products” which
eliminate the need for a rinsing agent or
salt, for example:
Some products with a built-in rinsing
agent are only used to their full effect in
certain programmes.
This type of product does not generally
produce the desired effect with
automatic programmes.
If you are using detergent in tablet form,
read the manufacturer’s
recommendations on the packaging in
order to
determine where the tablets should be
placed inside the dishwasher (e.g. in
cutlery basket, detergent compartment,
etc.).
Make sure that the lid on the detergent
compartment is closed, even if you are
using tablets.
Products which eliminate the need for
regeneration salt can only be used
within a certain water hardness range.
If you wish to use these combined
products, please read the instructions
carefully and heed any notes on the
packaging.
Contact the manufacturer of the cleaning
agent if you have any questions,
particularly if:
the crockery is very wet once the
programme has finished.
limescale deposits are formed.
Any problems which arise as a direct
result of the use of these products are not
covered by our warranty.

Important information
Notes on waste disposal
Old appliances still have some residual
value. An environment-friendly method of
disposal will ensure that valuable raw
materials can be recovered and used
again.
When an appliance has reached the end
of its working life, unplug it from the mains.
Cut through the mains cable and dispose
of it together with the plug.
Destroy the door locking mechanism.
This will ensure that children at play
cannot become locked inside and are not
exposed to the risk of suffocation.
Your new appliance was protected by
suitable packaging while it was on its way
to you. All materials used for this purpose
are environment-friendly and can be
recycled. Please make a contribution to
protecting the environment by disposing of
the packaging appropriately.
Do not allow children to play with any parts
of the packaging. There is a risk of
suffocation by the cardboard boxes and
the plastic wrapping.
Up-to-date information concerning options
for disposal can be obtained from your
retailer or local municipal administration.
General
Built-under and integrated appliances
which are subsequently installed as
free-standing appliances must be
secured to prevent them from falling
over, e.g. by screwing them to the wall
or by installing them under a continuous
worktop which is screwed to the
adjoining units.
For Swiss version only:
The appliance can be installed without
difficulty between wooden and plastic
walls in a kitchen range. If the appliance
is not connected via a plug, the
installation side must feature an all-pole
disconnector with a contact gap of at
least 3 mm in order to satisfy the
relevant safety regulations.
Notes on comparison tests
You will find details of the conditions for
the comparison tests on the additional
”Notes on comparison tests” sheet. The
consumption values for the relevant
programmes are given in the introduction.

Installation
The dishwasher must be connected by
a qualified technician to ensure correct
operation. The specifications for supply,
drainage and connected load must fulfil
the required criteria as stated in the
following paragraphs or in the installation
instructions.
Install the appliance in the following
sequence:
– Check the delivery
– Install the appliance
– Connect the waste water
– Connect the fresh water
– Connect the power supply
Delivery
Your dishwasher was checked at the
factory to ensure that it was in perfect
working order. This may have left some
small water stains in the dishwasher.
These will disappear after the first rinse
cycle.
Installation
The required installation dimensions can
be found in the installation instructions.
Using the height-adjustable feet, adjust the
appliance until it is level. Ensure that the
appliance is standing firmly.
Waste water connection
See the installation instructions for the
required connection steps. If required,
attach a siphon with drainage spigot.
Using the enclosed parts, connect the
waste water hose to the drainage spigot
of the siphon.
Ensure that the drainage hose is not
kinked, crushed or twisted (ensure that
there is no sealing cover which prevents
the waster water from flowing away!).
22
Fresh water connection
Using the enclosed parts, connect the
fresh water connection to the tap
according to the installation instructions.
Ensure that the fresh water connection is
not kinked, crushed or twisted.
When replacing the appliance, always
connect a new water supply hose to the
water supply. The old supply hose must
not be re-used.
Ensure that the fresh water connection is
not kinked, crushed or twisted.
Water pressure:
Minimum 0,5 bar – maximum 10 bar.
If the water pressure is higher, install a
pressure reducing valve.
Flow rate:
Minimum of 10 litres per minute.
Water temperature:
We recommend that you use cold water.
If you do use hot water, the temperature
should not exceed 60 °C.
Electrical connection
This appliance should only be connected
to a 230/240 V AC source via a properly
installed earthed socket. See nameplate
31 for size of required fuse.
The socket must be installed close to the
dishwasher.
If the domestic wiring includes a residualcurrent-operated (FI) circuit-breaker, make
sure that it bears the
mark, as only
this type conforms to the latest regulations
Disconnecting the dishwasher
Here too, it is important that tasks are
carried out in the correct sequence:
always unplug the appliance from the
mains electricity first of all.
Pull plug out of wall socket.
Turn off water supply.
Disconnect drain and water input hoses.
Remove screws in underside of work
surface. Detach base board, if fitted.
Pull out appliance and carefully withdraw
hoses at same time.
en
Transporting the dishwasher
Drain water from the dishwasher. Secure
all loose parts. The appliance should only
be transported in an upright position.
If the appliance is not kept upright
during transport, any water left inside
may seep into the control module and
cause subsequent errors with
programme functions.
The appliance must be drained in the
following sequence:
Turn on the tap.
Set main switch to ON.
Select the A programme.
Wait for approximately 4 minutes.
Terminate the programme by
pressing A and C
simultaneously.
Wait a further minute and then
switch the appliance off.
Turn off the tap.
Protection from freezing
temperatures
If the appliance is installed in a location
where there is a risk of freezing
temperatures (e.g. in a holiday home), all
water must be completely drained out of
the interior (see “Transporting the
dishwasher”).
Turn OFF the tap, disconnect the supply
hose and allow to drain.
