While washing is taking place, salt is
automatically rinsed out of the salt

dishwasher. The water softening system is
then ready for the next load.
This process of regeneration can only
function when the salt is dissolved in

Before you use the dishwasher for the first
time, pour approx. 1 litre of water into the
salt container.
Use the enclosed salt filler.
Refill with salt (do not use edible salt)
until the salt dispenser is full (max. 1.5 kg).
When the salt dispenser is being refilled,
water is displaced and drains away.
Therefore always refill the salt dispenser
immediately before switching on the
dishwasher (to prevent corrosion). As a
result, the overflowing salt solution will be
immediately diluted and rinsed out. Then
remove salt residue from the filler area and
screw on the dispenser cover, ensuring
that it is not fitted askew.
