persons who only wish to load breakfast and dinner crockery and cutlery.
2) Test programme for test institutes.
First use
Before using your dishwasher for the first time:
• Ensure that the electrical and water connections comply with the installation instructions
• Remove all packaging from inside the appliance
• Set the water softener
• Pour 1 litre of water inside the salt container
and then fill with dishwasher salt
• Fill the rinse aid dispenser
If you want to use combi detergent tablets such
as: "3 in 1", "4 in 1", "5 in 1" etc... set the 3 in 1
function (see "3 in 1 function").
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 de-
grees (°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.

Unloading the dishwasher
• Hot dishes are sensitive to knocks.
The dishes should therefore be allowed to
cool down before removing from the appliance.
• Empty the lower basket first and then the
upper one; this will avoid water dripping from
the upper basket onto the dishes in the lower
• Water may appear on the sides and the door
of the dishwasher as the stainless steel will
eventually become cooler than the dishes.
When the washing programme has finished, it
is recommended that the dishwasher is unplugged and the water tap turned off.

Guarantee/Customer Service
Our appliances are produced with the greatest
of care. However, a defect may still occur. Our
consumer services department will repair this
upon request, either during or after the guarantee period. The service life of the appliance
will not, however, be reduced as a result.

appliance is returned to the condition it
was in before the defect occurred. Defective parts are replaced or repaired. Parts

anticipated for bulky appliances or built-in
11. If the appliances are built-in, built-under,
fixed or suspended in such a way that removing and replacing them in the place
where they are fitted takes more than half
an hour, the costs that result there from
will be charged for. Connected damage
caused by these removal and replacement operations will be the responsibility
of the user.
12. If, during the guarantee period, repairing
the same defect repeatedly is not conclusive, or if the repair costs are considered
disproportionate, in agreement with the
consumer, the defective appliance may be
replaced with another appliance of the
same value. In this event, we reserve the
right to ask for a financial contribution calculated according to the length of time it
has been used.

imposed, this declaration of guarantee
terms excludes any compensation for

the consumer wishes to assert his rights.
In the event of legally admitted liability,
compensation will not exceed the purchase price paid for the appliance.
These guarantee terms are only valid for appliances purchased and used in Belgium. For
exported appliances, the user must first make
sure that they satisfy the technical conditions
(e.g.: voltage, frequency, installation instructions, type of gas, etc.) for the country concerned and that they can withstand the local
climatic and environmental conditions. For appliances purchased abroad, the user must first
ensure that they meet the qualifications required in Belgium. Non-essential or requested
adjustments are not covered by the guarantee
and are not possible in all cases.
Our consumer services department is always
at your disposal, even after the guarantee
period has expired.
