Before use

Before using your dishwasher for the first time:
1. ensure that the electrical and water
connections comply with the installation
instructions
2. remove all packaging from inside the appliance
3. set the water softener
4. pour 1 litre of water inside the salt container and
then fill with salt
5. fill the rinse aid dispenser.

Setting the water softener

The dishwasher is equipped with a water softener
designed to remove minerals and salts from the
water supply, which would have a detrimental or
adverse effect on the operation of the appliance.
The higher the content of these salts, the harder
your water is.
Water hardness is measured on Parts Per Million
(Ca CO
). The softener can treat water hardness
3
up to 1200 ppm via 5 adjustment levels.
The softener should be adjusted according to the
hardness of the water in your area. Your local
Water Authority can advise you on the hardness of
the water in your area.
If you use phosphate free detegents containing
enzymes, use salt even if the hardness of your
water is below level 1.
The dishwasher is factory set at level 2.
If this level is not suitable for your area the softener
should be adjusted.
To adjust the water softener:
With a screwdriver turn the selector on the upper
front corner of the machine until the level required
corresponds with the marker.

If your water is below level 1 it is already
*
soft and therefore there is no need to use
salt.
In this case adjust the setting of the water
softener on level 1 without using salt.
