Rinse aid

Rinse aid is automatically added during the last rinse, ensuring

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.
Adjusting the dose
According to the finish and drying results obtained, adjust the
dose of rinse aid by means of the 6 position selector (position
1 minimum dosage, position 6 maximum dosage).
The dose is factory set in
position 4.
Increase the dose if there are
drops of water or lime spots
on the dishes after washing.
Reduce it if there are sticky
whitish streaks on the dishes
or a bluish film on glassware
or knife blades.
Top up the rinse aid when the indicator light on the control
panel illuminates.
