USING THE WATER SOFTENING SYSTEM
Better washing results require the use of soft water.
Hard water contains impurities that can hinder the washing performance.
You will need to soften the water if the water supply is harder than 1.0 mmol/ℓ (6 °d – German scale). To do
this, you need:
• Dishwasher salt.
• Configuration of the water hardness level according to your area.
For more information about the water hardness level in your area, contact your local water department.
If the hardness level of your water supply is unsteady, set the dishwasher to the highest measurement.
For example, if the water hardness reading ranges from 6.7 mmol/ℓ to 9.0 mmol/ℓ, set the dishwasher
to 9.0 mmol/ℓ.
The dishwasher's default water hardness level setting is 3 (4.0-5.5 mmol/ℓ). If this setting matches the water
hardness level in your area, there is no need to change it.
If you need to change the water hardness level, follow the instructions below.
