Adding detergent

– If the detergent dispenser 1j is still
closed, press the lock 9" to open the
detergent dispenser.
Pour detergent into the dry detergent
dispenser 1j only (insert tablet flat,
not on its edge).
Dosage: see manufacturer's
instructions on the packaging.
The graduated detergent
dispenser 1j helps you add the
correct amount of powder or liquid
Usually 20 ml–25 ml are adequate
for normal soiling. If using tablets, one
tablet is adequate.
– Close the cover on the detergent
dispenser by sliding it up until the lock
engages without difficulty.
The detergent dispenser opens
automatically at the optimum time
depending on the programme.
The powder or liquid detergent
is distributed in the appliance and is
dissolved, the tablet falls into the tablet
collecting tray where it dissolves
in doses.
If the utensils are only lightly soiled, slightly
less than the indicated amount
of detergent is usually adequate.
Suitable detergents and care products
can be purchased online via our website
or via customer service (see back page).
– Do not place small parts for washing in
the tablet collecting tray 1:; this
prevents the tablet from dissolving
– If you want to add more utensils after
the programme has started, do not
use the tablet collecting tray 1:
as a handle for the upper basket.
The tablet could already be there and
you will touch the partially dissolved
– If programmes are short, tablets
may not have full cleaning effect due to
different dissolving properties
and there may even be undissolved
detergent residue. It is recommended
to use washing powder for these
– The Intensive programme (on some
models) requires one tab only. When
using washing powder, you can apply
some of this cleaning agent to the
inside of the appliance's door.
– If using detergents in a water-soluble
protective cover: Take hold of the
cover with dry hands only and put
the detergent into an absolutely
dry detergent dispenser only, otherwise
the detergent may stick.
– If you switch from combined
detergents to solo detergents, ensure
that the water softening system and
amount of rinse aid have been set to
the correct value.
