Water softening system
To ensure good washing results, the
dishwasher requires soft water, i.e.
containing low amounts of lime, otherwise
white limescale will be deposited on the
utensils and inner container.
Tap water above a specific degree of
water hardness must be softened, i.e.
descaled, for use in a dishwasher. Water is
softened with special salt in the water
softening system of the dishwasher.
The setting and therefore the required
amount of salt depends on the degree of
hardness of your tap water (see table).
The amount of salt dispensed can be set
in 4 stages depending on the hardness of
your water. Accordingly 0, 1, 2 or 3
displays are lit (see table). Factory setting:
