Use of dishwasher salt

Only use salt specifically designed for use in dishwashers. All other types of salt not spe-
cifically designed for use in a dishwasher, especially table salt, will damage the water soft-
ener. Only fill with salt just before starting one of the complete washing programmes. This
will prevent any grains of salt or salty water, which may have been spilt, remaining on the
bottom of the machine for any period of time, which may cause corrosion.
To fill:
1. Open the door, remove the lower basket and unscrew the cap of the salt container by
turning it anticlockwise.
2. Pour 1 litre of water inside the container (this is necessary only before filling with
salt for the first time) .
3. Using the funnel provided, pour in the salt
until the container is full.
4. Replace the cap making sure that there is
no trace of salt on the screw thread or on
the gasket.
5. Replace the cap tightly turning it clock-
wise until it stops with a click.
Do not worry if water overflows from the unit
when filling with salt, this is quite normal.
The salt indicator light on the control panel can remain illuminated for 2-6 hours after the
salt has been replenished, assuming the dishwasher remains switched on. If you are using
salts that take longer to dissolve then this can take longer. The function of the machine is
not affected.

Use of rinse aid

Only use branded rinse aid for dishwashers.
Never fill the rinse aid dispenser with any other substances (e.g. dishwasher cleaning agent,
liquid detergent). This would damage the appliance.
Rinse aid ensures thorough rinsing, and spot and streak free drying.
Rinse aid is automatically added during the last rinse.
