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 1J.
– Fill the tank with water (only required
when switching on the appliance for
the first time).
– Then add dishwasher salt (not table
salt or tablets).
The water is displaced and runs out.
As soon as the salt refill indicator @ on
the fascia is lit, top up the salt.

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.
Switching off salt refill indicator/
water softening system
If the salt refill indicator @ is impaired
(e.g. when using combined detergents
containing salt component), it can be
switched off.
– Proceed as described under "Adjusting
the 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.
