Water hardness level is factory
set for medium-hard water
(level 4).
Even if you use tablets which
include salt functionality, you
must still add regeneration salt
since such detergents are not
effective enough at softening
hard water.
Once regeneration salt is added, immediately start a wash program (the “Pre-wash” program alone is not sufficient). Residual saline solution or grains of salt can lead to
deep-down corrosion, irreparably damaging the stainless steel components. The guarantee is not applicable if faults are caused by such circumstances.
Fill the salt reservoir with water
before the first wash only.

If there are streaks: reduce the dosage by turning the dial to a lower setting (1-3). If crockery is not perfectly dry: increase the dosage by turning the dial to a higher setting (5-6). Plastic dishes have more difficulty
drying and a higher rinse aid setting will not improve the situation.
Detergents with rinse aid incorporated may be effective only with longer programs. In the case of shorter programs, detergent residue may be a problem (if necessary, use powder detergent). Detergents with
rinse aid incorporated tend to form excess suds.

- Kinked water inlet hose or clogged inlet filters. - The water inlet hose must not be kinked and the relative inlet filter in the water tap connector must not be dirty.
...shows “F6 E3”/wash program ended too
early (dishes are dirty and wet)
- Dirty or clogged filters. - The filters must not be dirty or clogged.
- Too little water in the dishwasher’s water system. - Concave items (e.g. bowls, cups) must be arranged facing downwards in the rack.
- Drain hose incorrectly fitted.
- The drain hose must be fitted correctly (for high mounted appliances, leave min. 200-400 mm from the lower edge of the
appliance) - see Assembly instructions.
- High level of foam inside. - Repeat without detergent or wait until foam disappears.
...shows “F8 E1” - Dirty filters. - Clean the filters.
- Kinked drain hose. - The drain hose must not be kinked.
- Syphon hose connection closed. - The closure disk of the syphon hose connection must be removed.
After taking the above course of action, the fault message must be reset. In the majority of cases the fault is thus eliminated.
RESET: Press the CANCEL/Off button.
Close the door.
Water drains automatically for up to 1 minute.
The appliance is now ready to be restarted.
Crockery and cutlery... Possible causes... Solutions...
...are not perfectly clean/have food residues - Too little space between dishes (incorrect arrangement of the
concave items in the rack).
- Arrange crockery so that items do not touch each other. Concave items (e.g. bowls, cups) must be arranged facing
downwards in the rack.
- T
oo little detergent; detergent too old or incorrectly stored.
- If necessary, use more detergent, observing the manufacturer’s indications as regards dosage. Always store detergent in a
dry place and do not store it for excessively long periods of time.
- T
emperature not high enough for heavily soiled crockery. - For heavily soiled crockery, select a wash program with a higher temperature (see table of programs - page 1).
- Loading of the dishwasher using lower and upper rack at the
same time with “Half load/Multizone” option.
- If you select the “Half load/Multizone” option (if available), remember to load only the upper rack or only the lower rack to
increase washing power and thus obtain optimum wash results.
- Frequent use of Eco 50°C.
- In the event of frequent use of the Eco 50°C program (if available), from time to time select the Intensive 65°C program
(if available).

What to do if...
Crockery and cutlery... Possible causes... Solutions...
...salt indicator lit - Use tablets for soft water. - Set “Tablet” option; if this option is not available, it is normal for the salt indicator to light up.
...have deposits: regeneration salt residue - Water too hard. - In areas with very hard water, more regeneration salt needs to be added (see page 2, “How to set water
- Salt reservoir cap open. - Close the salt reservoir cap properly.
- Not enough rinse aid. - If you use a combined action detergent, try adding more rinse aid.
...are not dry - Plastic containers dry badly. - Synthetic materials do not dry well; if wet at end of cycle, wipe dry.
- Clean dishes left in dishwasher for a long time after end
of cycle (e.g. when using “Delayed start” option).
- In this situation, the presence of drops of water on dishes and on the sides of the dishwasher is normal.
Try releasing the door 5 minutes before removing the dishes.
- Incorrect arrangement of the concave items in the rack. - Arrange crockery so that water does not collect in cavities.
- Incorrect dosage the rinse aid. - Increase the dosage of rinse aid (see page 3, “Adding rinse aid”).
- Rapid program selected. - The Rapid program 40°C / 45°C is intended for quickly washing lightly soiled dishes. If used for a full load of
medium/heavy soiled dishes, the dishes may not dry completely. If so, select a standard-length program. For best
results, open the door after the end of the program and wait 15 minutes before unloading the dishwasher.
...have discoloured plastic parts - Tomato/Carrot juice. - Tomato sauce, for example, can lead to discolouring of plastic parts. Powder detergent is recommended as
it allows slightly higher doses to be used for improved whitening. Programs with higher wash temperatures
should be used.
...opaque glasses, etc. - Dishes unsuitable for washing in dishwashers (porcelain), - Only use dishwasher-proof crockery and dishes.
...removable deposits on glasses - Usage of incorrect programs for glasses. - Dishes should be put together, to avoid touching each other. Do not put glassware together in baskets.
Use suitable program for glass.
...glasses not sparkling - Not conform of glasses to washing in dishwashers
- Some kinds of glass cannot be washed in the dishwasher.
...permanent deposits on glasses - Rainbow effect. - This phenomenon is irreversible. We recommend in future:
- Change the control of system of dosage of softener.
- Be careful – follow recommended detergent dosage.
- For combined action tablets see detergent producer’s recommendations.
...tea cups darken and dirt does not disappear
after washing in dishwasher
- Not known. - This phenomenon is inevitable. Theine alters colours permanently.
...rust marks - Pre-wash program not used. - Salty or acidic food residues can cause rust marks even on stainless steel cutlery. To avoid this, always use
the pre-wash program if the dishes are to be washed later.
...other marks - Rinse aid dosage too low. - In the presence of marks, increase the rinse aid dosage (see page 3, “Adding rinse aid”).
- If you use a combined action detergent, possibly add more rinse aid.
...streaks - Rinse aid dosage too high. - In the presence of streaks, reduce the rinse aid dosage (see page 3, “Adding rinse aid”).
- If you use a combined action detergent which includes rinse aid, do not add any additional rinse aid.
...suds - Unsuitable dosage of detergent/rinse aid. - Only use the amount of detergent/rinse aid required, since excessive amounts can lead to excess suds.

What to do if...
If, after carrying out the above checks, the fault persists, disconnect the mains plug and turn off the water tap. Contact the After-sales Service (see warranty).
Before contacting our After-Sales Service, take note of the following:
- the description of the fault,
- the appliance type and model,
- the service code (the number indicated on the adhesive rating plate) inside the door on the right-hand side:
Precautions and general recommendations
1. Packing
The packaging materials are 100% recyclable and marked with the recycling symbol .
2. Removing the packaging and inspecting the contents
After unpacking, make sure that the dishwasher is undamaged and that the door closes correctly. If in doubt,
contact a qualified technician or your local retailer.
3. Before using the dishwasher for the first time
- The appliance is designed to operate at ambient temperatures of between 5°C and 45°C.
- This dishwasher has been tested by the manufacturer to ensure it functions correctly. Such testing may
leave slight drips/water marks which will disappear with the first wash.
4. Energy and water savings
- Do not rinse crockery under running water.
- Always fully load the dishwasher before running it or select the “Half load/Multizone” option (if available).
- If ecological energy sources are available such as solar panel heating, heat pumps or centralised heating
systems, the appliance may be connected to the hot water mains up to a maximum temperature of 60°C.
Make sure the water inlet hose is of the correct type (“70°C Max” or “90°C Max”).
5. Child safety
- Keep the packaging materials out of the reach of children.
- Children must not be allowed to play with the dishwasher.
- Store the detergent, rinse aid and salt out of the reach of children.
