Special salt $

Using special salt

Always refill with special salt immediately
before switching on the appliance. This
ensures that overrun special salt solution
is immediately washed out and does not
corrode the rinsing tank.
– Open the screw-type
cap of the compartment 1B.
– Fill the tank with water (only required
when switching on the appliance
for the first time).
– Then add salt (not table salt).
The water is displaced and runs out.
* depending on model
The salt refill indicator P on the fascia
is lit. It goes out as soon as a sufficiently
high salt solution has formed.
If the set value
is displayed, do not add
any salt because salt will not be used
during operation of the appliance, the salt
display is switched off. If the set values
are displayed, salt must be added.
Using detergents with salt
If combined detergents with a salt
component are used, salt can usually be
omitted up to a water hardness of 21° dH
(37° fH, 26° Clarke, 3.7 mmol/l). If the
water hardness is over 21° dH, special
salt must be used.

Salt refill indicator

As soon as the salt refill indicator
P on the fascia is lit, top up the salt.
Depending on the washing frequency
and the hardness setting, the regeneration
salt may not have to be topped up
for several months.
If the salt refill indicator P is impaired
(e. g. when using combined detergents
containing salt component), it can be
switched off.
– Proceed as described under "Setting
water softening system" and set
the value to .
The water softening system and salt
refill indicator are now switched off.
– Never fill the salt dispenser with
detergent. You will destroy the water
softening system.
– To prevent corrosion, always refill with
salt immediately before switching on
the appliance.
