Detergent; Adding Detergent - Siemens SN 56M531 Instructions For Use And Safety


Table of Contents


You can use tablets as well as powder
or liquid detergents for dishwashers,
but never use washing up liquid. Tablets
contain not only detergent but also
rinse-aid and salt (3in1) and, depending
on the combination (4in1, 5in1, etc.),
additional components such as glass
protection or stainless steel cleaner.
If tablets contain rinse-aid and salt, it is
usually not necessary to add additional
rinse-aid and salt up to a specific degree
of hardness. If the degree of hardness is
higher and if using solo detergents
(powder or liquid detergents or tablets
without rinse-aid and salt) rinse-aid and
salt must be added. The appliance doses
these automatically according to the
preset values for water hardness and
amount of rinse-aid.
As soon as combined detergent
products are used, the rinse
programme is adjusted automatically
to ensure the best possible rinsing and
drying result.
Follow the instructions for use or the
instructions on the detergent packaging
to ensure that rinse-aid and salt are used
If you have further questions, we recom-
mend that you contact the detergent
manufacturers' helpline.
