Using no more than the correct amount of detergent

Different kinds of
Detergent tablets from different manufactures dissolve at
different rates. For this reason, some detergent tablets do not
attain their full cleaning power during short washing
programmes. Therefore please use long washing programmes
when using detergent tablets, to ensure the complete removal
of detergent residuals.
Today's detergents for dishwashers are almost exclusively low-
alkaline concentrated detergents with natural enzymes in tablet
Using 50°C washing programmes in conjunction with these
concentrated detergents reduces pollution and is good for your
dishes, as these washing programmes are specially matched
to the dirt-dissolving properties of the enzymes in concentrated
detergents. It is for this reason that using 50°C washing
programmes in conjunction with concentrated detergents can
achieve the same cleaning results that can otherwise only be
achieved using 65°C washing programmes.
Use of "3 in 1" combi detergents
These products are detergents with a combined cleaning,
rinsing and salt function.
1. Check whether these detergents are suitable for your water
hardness. Follow the manufacturers instructions.
NOTE: the refilling of the salt container and the rinse aid
dispenser are no longer necessary.
In this case the salt and the rinse aid indicator lights will always
remain illuminated when the machine is switched on (not all
dishwasher models are foreseen with salt and rinse aid
2. Select the lowest setting for water hardness.
3. Before the start of the washing programme put the "3 in 1"
detergent in the detergent dispenser.
NOTE: If the drying results are not satisfactory we recommend
1. Fill up the rinse aid dispenser with rinse aid.
2. Set the rinse aid dosage to position 2.
If you decide to turn back to the use of the standard
detergent system we advise that you:
Fill up the dispensers for salt and rinse aid again.
Adjust the water hardness setting to the highest setting

loading any dishes.

hardness of the water in your area.
