Electrolux dishwasher
Hide thumbs


Spray arm (1)

It is important to keep all the holes in the spray arm clear.
A clogged hole can seriously affect washing efficiency.
If the spray arm needs cleaning, unscrew the nut anti-
clockwise, remove the washer and lift off the spray arm.
Clear the holes and shake out any food remnants.
Coarse filter/microfilter (2)
The purpose of the coarse filter is to catch large objects
such as toothpicks and pieces of eggshell. Make sure
that the filter is always clean. Turn the coarse filter anti-
clockwise. Lift it out and rinse it under running water
whenever necessary.
Fine filter (3)
It is just as important to keep this filter clean. A dirty or
clogged filter will always impair washing efficiency.
The fine filter can easily be lifted out for cleaning when
you have removed the coarse filter.

Detergent dispenser (4)

Open the lid to the dispenser by pressing the lid catch
towards the compartment. Consult the instructions on the
detergent packet, fill the compartment accordingly and
close the lid. Remember that the instructions usually refer
to full-size dishwashers, for example when using detergent
tablets, it is sufficient to use just half a tablet. Pre-wash
detergent is poured into the smaller compartment to the
left when needed. This detergent is active allready at pre-
rinsing. Make sure that there is no items that prevents the
lid from opening.
Only use detergents specially designed for
Avoid frequent use of liquid detergents, as the
long term effects of such detergents create a
potential risk of increasing pump noise.

Rinse aid dispenser (5)

Use of rinse aid will result in cleaner and faster drying of
the load, since it helps water and soil to run off.
Too much rinse aid may result in streakiness, too little
may cause white spots. The dispenser holds about 150 ml.
This is enough for approx. 60 wash cycles, depending
on the dosage setting. Adjust the dosage setting according
to the hardness of the water.
You can set the dosage between 1 - 6, equivalent
to 1 - 6 ml rinse aid. Factory setting is 1.
Begin at the lowest dosage setting and increase
if necessary by turning the setting arrow with e.g.
the handle of a spoon.
The indicator light
on the control panel is lit when the
dispenser requires refilling.
1. Open the lid to the dispenser by pressing the lid
catch towards the compartment and lift the lid.
2. Fill up with rinse aid; do not overfill.
3. Wipe off any spillage carefully to prevent excessive
foaming during the next wash programme.
4. Close the lid and press until it locks again.
Do not fill the rinse aid dispenser with liquid

Water softener (6)

This dishwasher is equipped with a water softener for hard
water, therefore shall the rinse aid dispenser be set for a
low dosage. The lime in hard water causes white deposits
to occur on dishes and to the interior of the dishwasher.
To prevent this, the water has to pass through a special
container where the hardness is removed.
Since the water softener uses coarse dishwasher salt,
you will have to refill the salt container after a certain
number of dishwashing cycles.
It is important to fill the compartment with
coarse dishwasher salt before using the
machine for the first time, if you live in an
area where the water is calciferous.

4. Remove the funnel and wipe off any spillage

5. Screw the filler cap back properly in place.
The water softener is now ready for the first load of dishes.
Always make sure that there is coarse grained salt in the
container, which holds about 1 litre.
How to adjust the water softener, see chapter "Adjusting
the water softener".
Use only special salt for dishwashing
machines, ordinary domestic salt can
damage the water softener.
