GB -3- Daily check 3 Check the rinse aid indicator to check the level into the dispenser. (depending on the model) Rinse aid indicator on the control panel Rinse aid indicator on the dispenser The indicator lamp lights up when RINSE AID NEEDS TO BE ADDED. dark: OK. clear: NEEDS TO BE ADDED Only use rinse aids recommended for use in domestic dishwashers. Immediately wipe away any rinse aid spilt accidentally. This prevents the formation of excess suds which can cause a fault function of the appliance. 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. Daily use Adding detergent - Use only detergent specifically for dishwashers in accordance with the supplier’s recommendations Open the cover A (press the dedicated button). Only fill the detergent dispenser prior to starting a wash program. Shut the cover by pressing dedicated ribs. Insert detergent: Tablet / powder / liquid into the big chamber Use only one tablet per one cycle, only placed in detergent dispenser. All types of tablets can be used, but for 2 in 1 type adding of salt is mandatory. If required, open the cover B (press the dedicated button). Add rinse aid to the max. line ~150 ml The rinse aid dosage can be adjusted to the detergent used. The lower the setting, the less rinse aid is dispensed (factory setting: position 4). Press the button to open the cover B. Using a coin or similar object, turn the arrow to the desired setting. After adjusting the rinse aid setting, shut the cover again.

Solutions... ...is not working/will not start - The appliance must be switched on. - Check the household circuit fuse if there is no power supply. - The dishwasher door doesn’t close. - Check if the dishwasher’s door is closed. - “Delayed start” option is ON. - Check whether the “Delayed start” option (if available) has been selected. If it has, the appliance will only start once the set time has elapsed. If necessary, set the delayed start to “0” (RESET the appliance). ...the CANCEL/Off indicator lamp blinks 6 times - Water tap closed. - The water tap must be open. - 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 or clogged. - Water pressure too low. - The water tap must be fully open during water inlet (minimum capacity: 0.5 litres per minute). ...the CANCEL/Off indicator lamp blinks 6 times/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. ...the CANCEL/Off indicator lamp blinks 8 times - 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. - Temperature 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 70°C program (if available). - Clogged spray arms, dirty filters or not fitted correctly. - The spray arms must not be clogged, the filters must not be dirty and must be fitted correctly (see page 5, “Maintenance and care“). - Spray arms stuck impeded by crockery or cutlery. - The spray arms must be able to turn freely and must not be impeded by crockery or cutlery.
GB -7- 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 hardness”). - 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.
