. Energy and water saving tips: 
Do not rinse crockery under running water. 


Always fully load the dishwasher before switching 
onor set the wash programme to half load/ 
Multizone (if available) if one rack only is loaded. 
If ecological energy sources are available such as solar

How to fill the salt container 

Warning: Only use regeneration salts for use in domestic 

dishwashers! 

Do not fill the salt container with unsuitable substances, such as detergent, 

as this will cause irreparable damage to the water softener system.

2. Unscrew the cap by turning it counter-clockwise. 

3. W ne first using the dishwasher: fill the salt container to the rim with 
water.

stir with a spoon handle. 

Screw the cap back on by turning it clockwise. 

Fit the lower rack. 


If regeneration salt is to be added, immediately start a wash 
programme (rinsing alone is not sufficient) in order to eliminate 
any residual saline solution straight away and avoid corrosion.

(about 100 ml maximum). 
Immediately wipe away any rinse aid spilt accidentally! This prevents 
the formation of excess suds which may spoil washing results. 


3. Close the cover. 








Thereafter, regularly check the rinse aid level.

2. If crockery is prone to whitish streaks: reduce the dosage by 
turning the dial to a lower setting (1-3) using acoin or the like. If 
crockery is not perfectly dry: increase the dosage by turning the 
dial to a higher setting (5-6). 

3. Close the cover.
