91 Before using the appliance, verify that the data given on the rating plate matches that of local power outlets. Remove all packing materials from inside of the appliance. Prepare special salt (water softener). Pour water into the special salt dispenser and then add about 1.5 kg of special salt (dishwasher salt). Pour rinse aid into the dispenser. 1 Before first use PREPARE THE APPLIANCE FOR OPERATION A dishwasher requires soft water (with low calcium content) to operate efficiently. Otherwi- se, white residue main remain on the dishes and inside the appliance.This has a negative impact on the quality of dishwashing, rinsing and drying.When the water flows through the softener, ions responsible for the water hardness are removed, and the water becomes soft, for best dishwashing results. Depending on the degree of water hardness, the ions respon- sible for water hardness accumulate quickly inside the water softener.Therefore, the water softener must be regenerated to operate with the same efficiency during the next wash.This is why special salt is used in the dishwasher. 2 The importance of water descaling Only use special salt intended for dishwashers. Any other type of salt that is not intended for use in a dishwasher, especially regular kitchen salt, will damage the water softener. In the event of damage caused by the use of the wrong salt, the manufacturer’s warranty is void and we will not be liable for damage. Fill with special salt before running the washing programme. This will prevent spilled special salt or salty water from remaining on the bottom of the devi- ce, which may cause corrosion. 3 Add special salt 1. Remove the lower basket from the appliance and unscrew the special salt dispenser cap. 2. Place the end of the funnel (included) in the hole and pour about 1.5 kg of salt. 3. Pour water into the dispenser until full. It is normal that a small amount of water spills out of the special salt dispenser. 4. After you fill the dispenser, screw the cap on. 5.When you fil the dispenser with special salt, the add salt indicator goes out. 6. Start the washing programme immediately after filling the dispenser with special salt (the quick wash is recommended). Otherwise, salty water can damage the filters, the pump or other important appliance components This is not covered by the warranty. NOTE: Fill the special salt dispenser when the special salt indicator on the control panel lights up. Depending on the rate of salt dissolution, the special salt indicator may still be on even after filling the dispenser. If there is no special salt indicator on the control panel (on some models), you can estimate when to top up the dispenser based on the number of wash cycles performed. If some special salt spills, run the soaking programme or a quick wash programme. Use only the special salt intended for dishwashers!

93 5 Fill the detergent dispenser Open the detergent dispenser flap by pressing the detergent dispenser tab to release the lock as shown in the figure.The detergent dispenser features volume marking. Using these markings (lines) you can measure the correct amount of detergent.The dispenser can accommodate a maximum of 30g of detergent. Open the pack with dishwasher detergent and in the case of heavily soiled dishes pour 25 cm³ detergent into the main wash compartment (A) or 15 cm³ for less soiled dishes (B). If the dishes remained unwashed for an extended period of time or if food has dried, pour 5 cm³ detergent into the pre-wash compartment and start the dishwasher. Depending on the amount of soil and the water hardness you may need to add more detergent. Please note that the setting may be different depending on the water contamination. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions on the detergent packaging.
Page: 19
94 You can prevent this by increasing the amount of detergent. Chlorine-free detergents have less bleaching effect. Stains may not be entirely removed. Select the programme with a higher wash temperature. Generally, using multi-component detergents suitable results are obtained only under certain conditions. Such detergents contain rinse aid and/or special salt in a specific amount. It is recommended to use special salt when using multi-component tablets. 7 What you should pay attention to when using these tablets. Always check the type of detergent used and whether it is a multi-component product. Make sure that the detergent used is appropriate for tap water hardness. Follow the instructions on the product packaging. If the detergent is in the form of tablets, never place it the cutlery basket. Always place the tablet in the detergent dispenser compartment. The use of these detergents yields good results only in certain applications. Using this type of detergent you should contact the manufacturer for information about proper use. If you use the detergent properly and dishwasher settings are correct you can save on salt and/or rinse aid. If dishwashing results while using 2-in-1 or 3-in-1 detergents are not satisfactory (tra- ces of lime scale on the dishes), please contact the detergent manufacturer. The warranty does not cover complaints due to the use of multi-component deter- gents. Recommended use: For best results using multi-component cleaning agents, add special salt and rinse aid in the dishwasher and set the water hardness and amount of rinse aid to the lowest setting. The solubility of the detergent tablets made by different manufacturers can vary with regard to temperature and time. It is therefore not recommended to use detergent tablets in quick programmes. It is recommended to use powder detergents in quick programmes. Always store detergents in a dry, cool place, out of reach of children. Add detergent to the dispenser immediately before using the appliance. Warning: If encounter another problem when using a multi-component detergent, please contact the detergent manufacturer. 6 Multi-component (multitab) detergents (eg. 2-in-1, 3-in-1, etc.) There are three types of detergents: 1. Containing phosphates and chlorine, 2. Containing phosphates and no chlorine, 3. Containing no phosphates and no chlorine. The latest tablets are generally phosphate-free. Since phosphates have water softening properties, we recommend adding salt to the container even if the water hardness is only 6°dH. If you use phosphate-free detergent where water is hard, white residue may be visible on the dishes.
Page: 20
95 Stop using multi-component detergents Add special salt and rinse aid to dispensers. Set the water hardness to the highest level (6) and run an empty dishwasher. Adjust the water hardness. Adjust rinse aid setting. 8 Add rinse aid to the dispenser and adjust setting Use rinse aid to prevent the formation of white water drops, lime scale spots, white streaks that may occur on the dishes, as well as to improve the drying process. Con- trary to popular belief, it not only serves to obtain a shiny dishes, but also to facilitate drying. For this reason, make sure there is always sufficient amount of rinse aid in the dispenser. If the rinse aid indicator on the control panel lights up, add rinse aid to the dispenser. To add rinse aid remove the dispenser lid by unscrewing it. Add rinse aid until the level indicator becomes dark. Replace the lid and turn it until markings align. Use rinse aid level indicator to make sure the level is sufficient. Dark colour indicates sufficient rinse aid level in the dispenser, and the light colour indicates you need to add rinse aid to the dispenser. You can adjust rinse aid dosage from 1 to 6.The factory setting for the rinse aid is 4. Adjust to a higher dose if streaks remain on the dishes after drying or to a lower dose if blue residue collets on the dishes. Full ¾ full ½ full ¼ full (add more) Empty Rinse-Aid indicator

96 Warning: Use only rinse aid designed for domestic dishwashers.Wipe up spilled rinse aid with a cloth as it will cause the formation of large amounts of foam, and thus will reduce the dishwashing effectiveness. If the water hardness is higher than the maximum values given in the table above, or if you use water from a deep well, it is recommended to use filters and water treatment equipment. NOTE:The factory settings are for the water hardness level 3.
