Detergent and
dishwasher use
Measuring out the detergent
Good washing results also depend on the correct amount of
detergent being used. Exceeding the stated amount does not
result in a more effective wash and increases environmental
The amount can be adjusted to the soil level.
In the case of normally soiled items, use approximately either
25g (powder detergent) or 25ml (liquid detergent). If tablets
are used, one tablet will be enough.
If the crockery is only lightly soiled or if it has been rinsed
with water before being placed in the dishwasher, reduce the
amount of detergent used accordingly.
For good washing results also follow the instructions shown
on the detergent box.
For further questions please ask the detergent producers.
Open the detergent dispenser using button D and measure out
the detergent according to the Table of wash cycles:
Remove detergent residues from the edges of the compartment
and close cover C until it clicks.
The detergent dispenser automatically opens up at the right time
according to the wash cycle.
If all-in-one detergents are used, we recommend using the TAB
option, because it adjusts the cycle so that the best washing and
drying results are always achieved.
Only use detergent which has been specifically designed
for dishwashers.
DO NOT USE washing up liquid.
Using excessive detergent may result in foam residues
remaining in the machine after the cycle has ended.
To achieve the best washing and drying results, the combined
use of detergent, rinse aid liquid and refined salt is required.
We recommend using detergents that do not contain
phosphates or chlorine, as these products are harmful
to the environment.

A (wash detergent) and B (pre-
