Combination detergent

Apart from conventional detergents
(Solo), a number of products are offered
with additional functions. These
products contain not only the detergent
but also rinse-aid and salt replacement
substances (3in1) and, depending on
the combination (4in1, 5in1, ...),
additional components such as glass
protection or stainless steel cleaner.
Combination detergents function only
up to a specific degree of hardness
(usually 21°dH). Over this limit salt and
rinse-aid must be added.
As soon as combined detergents are
used, the rinse programme is adjusted
automatically to ensure the best
possible rinsing and drying result.

for the "Intensive" programme (for
some models). When using washing
powder, you can apply some of this
cleaning agent to the inside of the
appliance's door.

indicator is lit, the rinse programme
will run correctly with combined
If using detergents in a water-soluble
protective cover: Take hold of the
cover with dry hands only and put
the detergent into an absolutely dry
detergent dispenser only, otherwise
the detergent may stick.
If you switch from combined
detergents to solo detergents,
ensure that the water softening
system and amount of rinse aid have
been set to the correct value.
Biological/eco detergents: Detergent
products identified as "Bio" or "Eco"
(to protect the environment) usually
