Water softening
system / special salt
To ensure good rinsing results, the
dishwasher requires soft water, i.e.
water which is low in lime, otherwise
limescale will be deposited on the
utensils and interior container. Tap
water above 7° dH (1.2 mmol/l)
must be softened. The water
is softened with special salt
(regeneration salt) in the water
softening system of the dishwasher.
The setting and therefore the
required amount of salt depends on
the degree of hardness of your tap
water (see following water hardness
table).

Using special salt

As soon as the low salt indicator P
lights up on the digital display, salt
should be topped off. Always refill
with special salt immediately before
switching on the appliance. This
ensures that overrun special salt
solution is immediately washed out
and does not corrode the rinsing
tank.
NOTICE:
Detergent will destroy the water
softening system! Never pour
detergent into the salt dispenser.
