Keep this instruction manual in a safe place for future reference. If the appliance is sold, given away or moved, please ensure the manual is kept with the machine, so that the new owner may benefit from the advice contained within it. Please read this instruction manual carefully: it contains important information regarding the safe installation, use and maintenance of the appliance. If the appliance must be moved at any time, keep it in an upright position; if absolutely necessary, it may be tilted onto its back.
Connecting the water inlet hose
To a suitable cold water connection point: before attaching the hose, run the water until it is perfectly clear so that any impurities that may be present in the water do not clog the appliance; after performing this operation, screw the inlet hose tightly onto a tap with a ¾ gas threaded connection. [. . . ] - To exit the function, wait a few seconds or press one of the option buttons*, or switch off the machine using the ON/OFF button. Even if using multi-functional tablets, the salt dispenser should still be filled.
If you do not add salt or rinse aid, the LOW SALT* and LOW RINSE AID* indicator lights remain lit.

Measuring out the rinse aid
Rinse aid makes it easier for the crockery to dry, as water runs off surfaces more readily and therefore does not leave streaks or marks. The rinse aid dispenser should be filled: When the LOW RINSE AID* indicator light on the control panel is illuminated; 1. Open the dispenser by turning the lid (G) in an anticlockwise direction. Pour in the rinse aid, making sure it does not overflow from the dispenser. NEVER pour the rinse aid directly into the appliance tub.
For values between 0°f and 10°f, we do not recommend the use of salt. * this setting may cause a slight increase in the duration of the cycle.
(°dH = hardness measured in German degrees - °f = hardness measured in French degrees - mmol/l = millimoles per litre)
Adjusting the amount of rinse aid
If you are not completely satisfied with the drying results, you may adjust the quantity of rinse aid used. Use a screwdriver to turn the dosage adjuster (F) to one of the 6 pre-set positions (the default position is set to 4): If there are streaks on the crockery, set the adjustment device to a lower number (1-3). If drops of water remain on the crockery or if there are limescale marks present after the cycle has finished, set the adjuster to a higher number (4-6).
Setting the water hardness
Every dishwasher is equipped with a water softener which, by using refined salt designed especially for this type of appliance, supplies water without limescale which is then used to wash the crockery. This dishwasher offers a setting which helps to reduce pollution and optimises washing performance in accordance with the water hardness level in your area. This information can be obtained from the organisation which supplies your household with water. - Set the SELECT WASH CYCLE knob first to wash cycle 5, then to wash cycle 1, then to wash cycle 5 again. - Press the ON/OFF button; the wash cycle phase (washing,
In order to achieve the best possible results using a wash cycle, make sure that the dispenser is never empty. Refined salt removes limescale from the water, thus avoiding the formation of deposits on crockery. The salt dispenser is located in the lower part of the dishwasher (see Description) and should be filled: When the green float* cannot be seen by simply looking at the cap of the salt dispenser. When the LOW SALT* indicator light on the control panel is illuminated; 1. Position the funnel* (see figure) and fill the salt container right up to its edge (this should hold approximately 1 kg); it is not unusual for a little water to leak out. Remove the funnel* and wipe any salt residue away from the opening; rinse the cap under running water and then screw it on, the head facing downwards so as to let the water flow out of the four cracks which are arranged in a star shape on the lower part of the cap. (Salt cap with green float*) It is advisable to perform this procedure every time you add salt to the container. Make sure the cap is screwed on tightly, so that no detergent can get into the container during the wash cycle (this could damage the water softener beyond repair). When necessary, measure out the salt before a wash cycle so that any saline solution which has leaked out of the salt dispenser is removed.
