Setting of the water softener

To prevent limescaling on the dishes and to the interior of the
dishwasher, the dishes must be washed with soft water.
This dishwasher is equipped with a water softener, where tap-
water which is harder than 4 °d (german degree) is softened.
Adjust the water softener according to the table below for the
water hardness level for your area.

In the following setting, the dishwasher must be switched off and all programmes completed.
See chapter "Using the appliance" for information on how to complete the programme.
1. Press the start button and hold it pressed in.
2. Turn the programme selector clockwise to the
first programme. When the indicator for the start
button and for the ended programme cycle starts
to flash, you can release the start button.
- The number of flashes for the ended programme
cycle are equivalent to the set water hardness
level.
- This sequence of flashes is repeated several
times after a few seconds pause.
3. The water hardness level is raised by 1 step
every time you press the start button.
After hardness level 10 comes hardness level 1.
4. Turn the programme selector to the "Reset"
position when the required water hardness level
is selected. This saves the required setting.
If the setting 1 is chosen, the salt indicator lamp
is not lit.
