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.

If the dishwasher is to be installed in a high-sided unit, ensure that the unit is attached properly and also at the rear.

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.

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.

4

In daily use

Warning

Knives and other utensils with sharp points must be placed in the baskets either flat or with the points downwards.

Use the dishwasher only in the household and only for its designed purpose, i.e. for washing domestic dishes.

Do not lean or sit on the open door.

The appliance could tip.

The water in the appliance is not drinking water.

Do not add any solvents to the washing chamber. Danger of explosion!

Open the door carefully when the programme is still running. Water could spray out of the appliance.

To prevent injuries, e.g. caused by stumbling, open the dishwasher only briefly in order to load and unload the dishwasher.

Read and observe the safety information and instructions for use on the packaging for cleaning and rinsing agents.

Children in the household

Do not let infants play or operate the dishwasher.

Keep cleaning and rinsing agents out of the reach of infants.

Keep infants away from the open dishwasher. It could contain residue of the cleaning agent.

en

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.

Warning

Children could get locked in the appliance

(risk of suffocation) or get stuck in other positions.

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.

Water hardness table

en

Press and hold the B programme button, and set the main switch

1

to

ON, before releasing the programme button again.

The indicator lamp for the B button flashes, as does the figure in the numerical display. The latter represents the value that was pre-set in the factory.

To change the setting:

Press the B programme button

9

.

Every time the button is pressed, the figure increases by one. After reaching

, the display starts at again.

Set the main switch

1

to OFF. The new setting is stored in the appliance’s memory.

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.

7

en

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

6

on the front panel will light up initially but will extinguish again after a short period when the salt solution has become sufficiently concentrated.

Note

When the control is set to , it is not necessary to fill up with salt as none will be consumed while the dishwasher is operating. The

LOW SALT indicator is switched off. If the control is set between

and , then salt must be added to the dispenser.

Do not pour detergent into the container for special salt. This would destroy the water softener.

Salt refill indicator

As soon as the salt refill indicator

6

is lit on the control panel, refill with salt immediately before the next rinse cycle.

Depending on the washing frequency and the hardness setting, the regeneration salt may not have to be topped up for several months.

8

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 (1 ) on the rinse-aid lid and simultaneously lift the lid off the lug (2 ).

en

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.

Not suitable for the dishwasher

The following should not be cleaned in the dishwasher:

Wooden cutlery and utensils – these will leach out and become unsightly; even the utilised stickers are not suitable for the temperatures which occur.

Sensitive ornamental glasses, craft utensil and vases, special antique or irretrievable utensils. These ornaments are not dishwasher-proof.

Plastic parts sensitive to hot water.

Copper and tin utensils.

Utensils which are soiled with ash, wax, lubricating grease or ink.

Absorbent materials such as sponges and cloths.

Aluminium and silver parts have a tendency to discolour and fade during the wash cycle. Even some types of glass

(e.g. crystal glass objects) may turn cloudy after many wash cycles.

Recommendation:

In future buy utensils which are identified as dishwasher-proof.

10

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.

Washing contents of UPPER

RACK only

* not on all models

If you only have a small number of dishes to wash, put them all into the upper rack and press the UPPER RACK button. This saves energy and water. If you select the

UPPER RACK function, the lower rack must be empty. Add a reduced amount of detergent compared to that which is recommended for a full load.

en

Arranging crockery, glasses, etc. 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.

Baking sheet spray head *

* some models

You can clean large baking sheets or grilles with the baking sheet spray head.

To do this, remove the top basket and insert the spray head as illustrated in the diagram.

To raise the basket, take hold of the basket on the upper edge and pull upwards.

Before you re-insert the basket, ensure that it is at the same height on both sides. Otherwise, the appliance door cannot be closed and the upper spray arm will not connect to the water circuit.

To ensure that the spray jet can reach all parts, arrange the baking sheets as illustrated

(max. 4 baking sheets and 2 grilles).

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!)

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.

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.

If the detergent dispenser

is still closed, press the lock

28

to open the detergent dispenser.

Adding detergent

Fill the dispenser

30

with detergent.

Please observe the manufacturer’s instructions printed on the detergent packaging when determining the correct dosage.

Important

Due to the different solvency properties of the detergent tablets supplied by various manufacturers, the cleaning efficiency of the detergent may not be fully utilised by short programmes. It is recommended to use washing powder for these programmes.

If using the “Intensive” programme

(some models), also pour approx.

10–15 ml of detergent onto the appliance door. If using tablets, also place a tablet on the appliance door.

15

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).

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.

auto 3in1

The use of so-called combined detergent products may make the use of rinse aid and/or salt unnecessary.

There are currently several types of combined detergent products available.

3in1: They contain detergent, rinse aid

and salt function.

2in1: They contain detergent and rinse aid or salt function.

>>> Always check the type of detergent

or combined product which you are using!

Always follow the operating instructions or the information on the packaging.

The rinse programme is automatically adjusted in order to obtain the best possible rinsing and drying result.

Observe the following important information if using combined cleaning products:

Regeneration salt is not required up to a water hardness of 21 dH (37 fH,

26 Clarke, 3.7 mmol/l) only. No other settings on the appliance are required.

Salt is still required if the water hardness is above 21 dH (37 fH,

26 Clarke, 3.7 mmol/l). Fill the salt dispenser with salt

24

and select setting 6 on the water softening system.

If in doubt, please contact the detergent manufacturer, especially if: the utensils are very wet at the end of the programme.

limescale forms.

16

Note

Optimum rinsing and drying results can be obtained by using standard detergents in conjunction with separate application of salt and rinse aid.

Observance of the operating instructions or information on the packaging of the combined detergents determines their effectiveness.

Note

Even if the rinse aid and/or salt refill indicator is lit, the rinse programme runs correctly when 3in1 products are used.

If the rinse aid refill indicator

Washing dishes

Reduce costs!

If only a small number of dishes have been loaded into the dishwasher, selecting a programme that operates at the next lowest temperature will usually suffice.

Programme data

The programme specifications can be found in the summary of instructions.

Programme specifications refer to normal conditions. Greater deviations may occur due to: different amounts of dishes temperature of mains water supply pressure of mains water supply ambient temperature fluctuations in mains voltage machine-related factors (e.g.

temperature, water volume, ...).

Energy and water consumption is reduced by up to 1/4 when dishes are washed in the upper basket only.

Water consumption values are based on a water hardness setting of 4.

Aqua sensor *

* on applicable models

The Aqua sensor is an optical measuring device which measures the turbidity of the rinsing water. A light barrier can detect dissolved food remnants in the water, e.g.

egg, fat and oats.

The Aqua sensor is used according to the programme. When the Aqua sensor is active, ”clean” rinsing water may be transferred into the next rinsing bath and/or the temperature adjusted. If the turbidity is greater, the water is drained and is replaced with fresh water. In this way the water consumption is reduced by approx. 4 litres for utensils which are ”less” dirty.

Fault finding

Resolving minor problems yourself

Experience has shown that you can resolve most problems that arise during normal daily usage yourself, without having to call out a service engineer. Not only does this save costs, but it also means that the appliance is available for use again that much sooner. The following list of common occurrences and their remedies should help you identify the causes of most problems.

Problems ...

Information

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.

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.

27

en

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!).

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.

Water pressure:

Minimum 0,05 MPa (0,5 bar) – maximum

1 MPa (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

Connect the appliance only to 230 V alternating current via a correctly installed socket with protective conductor.

See rating plate for required fusing

31

.

The socket must be attached near the dishwasher and be freely accessible.

The connection may be modified by an electrician only.

Use only a residual-current-operated circuit-breaker which features the symbol. Only this circuit breaker guarantees compliance with the currently valid regulations.

28

Removing the appliance

It is essential, when removing the appliance, to observe the following sequence: First, disconnect the appliance from the power supply.

Pull out the mains plug.

Turn off the water supply.

Disconnect the waste water and fresh water connections.

Pull out the appliance, carefully pulling the hose behind.

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 B programme. The programme duration in minutes is shown in the numerical display.

Close the door.

Wait for approximately 4 minutes.

Terminate the programme by pressing A and C simultaneously.

The time display changes to .

Wait a further minute and then switch the appliance off.

Turn off the tap.

en

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.
