The hardness of the water varies from place to place. If hard
water is used in the dishwasher, deposits will form on the dishes
The appliance is equipped with a special softener that uses a salt
specifically designed to eliminate lime and minerals from the water.
Loading the Salt into the Softener
Always use salt intended for use with dishwashers.
The salt container is located beneath the lower rack and should
be filled as follows:
- Remove the lower rack and then unscrew and remove the cap
from the salt container;
- If you are filling the container for the first time, fill it with water;
- Place the end of the funnel (supplied) into the hole and intro-
duce about 2 kg of salt. It is normal for a small amount of water
to come out of the salt container.
- Carefully screw the cap back on.
The salt container must be filled when the "low salt" indi-
cator light (located on the control panel) comes on.
To prevent the formation of rust, load the salt just before begin-
ning a wash cycle.
Adjusting Salt Consumption
The dishwasher is designed to allow for adjusting the amount of
salt consumed based on the hardness of the water used. This is
intended to optimise and customise the level of salt consumption
so that it remains at a minimum. Your local Water Board can
supply the degree of hardness of the water in your area.
To adjust salt consumption, proceed as follows:
- Unscrew the cap from the salt container;
- There is a ring on the container with an arrow on it (see figure to
the side), If necessary, rotate the ring in the anticlockwise
direction from the "-" setting towards the "+" sign, based on the
hardness of the water being used.
It is recommended that adjustments be made in accordance with
the following scheme:
