Water softening system

Hard water leaves limescale on the tub
and tableware and parts of the appli-
ance may become blocked.
To ensure good dishwashing results,
you can treat the water with special salt
and the water softening system. To
avoid damage to the appliance, water
with a hardness above 9 °E must be
softened.
