How to fill the salt
The hardness of the water varies from place to place. If hard water is used in the dishwasher, deposits
will form on the dishes and utensils.
The appliance is equipped with a special softener that uses a salt specifically designed to eliminate lime
and minerals from the water.

come out of the salt container.
Carefully screw the cap back on.
To prevent the formation of rust, load the salt just before 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 re-
mains 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 table:
