CHAPTER -4: PREPARING THE MACHINE FOR USE
Prior to using the machine for the first time
• Check whether the electricity and supply water specifications match the values indicated by the installation
instructions for the machine.
• Remove all packaging materials inside the machine.
• Set the water softener.
• Add 1 kg salt into the salt compartment and fill with water up to a level at which it will almost overflow.
• Fill the rinse aid compartment.
PREPARING THE MACHINE FOR USE

The importance of water decalcification

For a good washing function, the dishwasher needs soft, i.e. less calcareous water. Otherwise, white lime
residues will remain on the dishes and the interior equipment. This will negatively affect your machine's
washing, drying and shining performance. For this reason, a softener system used on dishwashers. The
softener system has to be refreshed so that it operates with the same performance also during the next wash.
For this purpose, dishwasher salt is used.
Filling with salt (IF AVAILABLE)

softener salt in machine is sufficient, check the transparent section on the salt compartment cap. There is
sufficient salt if the transparent section is green. Salt has to be added if it is not green.

Testing strip

The washing effectiveness of your machine depends on the softness of the tap water. For this reason, your ma-
chine is equipped with a system that reduces the hardness in mains water supply. The washing effectiveness will
increase when the system is correctly set. To find out the water hardness level of water in your area, contact your
local water board or determine water hardness level by using the test strip(if available).

Using a funnel (4) will make filling easier. Refit
the cap and close it. After every 20th-30th wash,
add salt into your machine until it fills up (approx.
1 kg) Fill the salt compartment with water at first
use only. We recommend to use smallgrained or
powder softener salt. Do not put table salt into your
machine. Otherwise, the function of the softener
compartment may decrease over time. When you
start machine, the salt compartment gets filled
with water. There fore, put the softener salt prior
to starting your machine. This way, overflowing
salt gets immediately cleaned up through the
wash operation. If you will not wash any dishes
immediately after putting salt, then run a short
washing program with an empty machine in order
to avoid corrosion on your machine due to the salt
overflow while filling in the salt container. In order
