Today's detergents for dishwashers are almost exclusively low alkaline concen
trated detergents with natural enzymes in tablet or powder form.
Using 50°C dishwashing cycles in conjunction with these concentrated deter
gents reduces pollution and is good for your dishes, as these dishwashing cycles
are specially matched to the dirt dissolving properties of the enzymes in con
centrated detergents. It is for this reason that using 50 °C dishwashing cycles in
conjunction with concentrated detergents can achieve the same cleaning results
that can otherwise only be achieved using 65 °C cycles.
Detergent tablets from different manufacturers dissolve at different rates. For
this reason, some detergent tablets do not attain their full cleaning power dur
ing short cycles. Therefore please use dishwashing cycles with pre wash when
using detergent tablets.
Using 3in1 detergents
These products are detergents with a combined cleaning, rinsing and salt func
When the 3in1 function is activated,
– the addition of special salt and rinse aid from the respective dispenser is pre
– If the salt and rinse aid dispensers are empty, this is not indicated.
– The dishwashing cycles can be up to 30 minutes longer.
If you want to use 3in1 detergents, check whether these detergents are suitable
for your water hardness. (Follow manufacturer's instructions!)
If your water hardness is higher than that recommended by the manufacturer
but you would nevertheless like to use 3in1 detergent, proceed as follows:
• With the 3in1 function selected, set the water softener one hardness setting
lower than when rinsing without 3in1 detergent.
• Fill up the dispenser (if this is empty) with special salt.
The dishwasher remembers the two different settings of the degree of hardness
for rinsing with and without 3in1 function.
