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" indicator
light (located on the control panel), comes on.
To prevent the formation of rust, load the salt just be-
fore beginning 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 optimize and customize the level of salt consumption
so that it remains at a minimum.
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
- If necessary, rotate the ring in an 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 schema:

Detergent and Rinse Aid
Detergent specifically intended for use with dishwashers must
be used. The dispenser must be refilled before the start of each
wash cycle following the instructions provided in the "Wash Cycle
Table". The detergent dispenser is located on the inside panel
Loading the detergent
To open the "A" cover on the dispenser, press the "B" button.
The detergent for the wash cycle should be poured into the "C"
After the detergent has been placed in the dispenser, close the
cover and press down until it clicks in place.
Notice: To facilitate closing the cover, remove any ex-
cess detergent on the edges of the dispenser.
This product makes dishes sparkle and helps them to dry with-
out spotting. The dispenser is located on the inside panel of the
door and should be filled after every 80 wash cycles (or when
the "low rinse aid" indicator light comes on for those models
with this feature).
Loading the Rinse Aid
Regardless of the type of detergent dispenser installed on your
appliance, you must proceed as indicated below when loading
the rinse aid.
To open the dispenser, turn the "C" cap in an anti-clockwise
direction and then pour in the rinse aid, making sure not to overfill.
The amount of rinse aid used for each cycle can be regulated by
turning the "F" dose adjustor, located beneath the "C" cap, with
a screwdriver. There are 6 different settings; the normal dosage
setting is 3.
Proper dosage of the rinse aid improves drying.
If drops of water remain on the dishes or spotting occurs,
the dosage adjustor should be turned to a higher setting.
If the dishes have white streaks, turn the dosage adjustor
to a lower setting.
