Use of dishwasher salt Use of dishwasher salt WARNING! Only use salt specifically designed for use in dishwashers. All other types of salt not specifically designed for use in a dishwasher, especially table salt, will damage the water softener. Only fill with salt just before starting one of the complete washing programmes.
Use of rinse aid Use of rinse aid WARNING! Only use branded rinse aid for dishwashers. Never fill the rinse aid dispenser with any other substances (e.g. dishwasher clean- ing 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.
Daily use This occurs only at the start and at the end of the washing programme; during the running of the programme the indication for rinse aid refilling is not active. Adjusting the dosage of rinse aid 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= maxi- mum dosage).

Load cutlery and dishes The lower basket Load larger and heavily soiled dishes and pans in the lower basket. To make it easier to load larger dishes, all rear plate racks in the lower basket can be folded down. The cutlery basket WARNING! Sharp knives and other items of cutlery with sharp edges must be laid in the cutlery tray or in the upper basket because of the risk of injury.
Load cutlery and dishes 1. Place the grid insert on the cutlery basket. 2. Place forks and spoon in the cutlery basket with their handles pointing downwards. For larger utensils, such as whisks, leave off one half of the cutlery grid. The cutlery basket can be opened out.
Load cutlery and dishes The upper basket Load smaller, fragile crockery and long, sharp cutlery in the upper basket. • Arrange items of crockery on and under the folding cup racks so that they are offset from each other and water can reach all items.
Load cutlery and dishes • The row of spikes on the left of the upper basket is also in two parts and can be folded away. Spikes not folded away: place glasses, mugs etc. in the upper basket. Spikes folded away: more room for serv- ing dishes.
Use of detergent Use of detergent Only use detergents specifically designed for use in dishwashers. Please observe the manufacturer's dosing and storage recommendations as stated on the detergent packaging. Using no more than the correct amount of detergent contributes to reducing pol- lution.
Multi-tab function 4. When using detergent tablets, place the tablet in compartment (1) 5. Close the lid and press until it locks in place. Detergent tablets Detergent tablets from different manu- factures dissolve at different rates.

Washing programmes If the drying results are not satisfactory we recommend that you: 1. Fill up the rinse aid dispenser with rinse aid. 2. Activate the rinse aid dispenser. 3. Set the rinse aid dosage to position 2. The activation/deactivation of the rinse aid can only be possible with the MULTITAB function active.
