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
