Quick operation guide
For detailed operating method read the corresponding content on the instruction manual.
IMPORTANT To get the best performance from your dishwasher, read all operating instructions before using it for the first time.
Prior to using for the first time
NOTE: If your model have no water softener, you may skip this section.
Loading the Salt Into the Softener
Always use salt intended for use with dishwasher.
The salt container is located beneath the basket and should be filled as follows:
- Only use salt specifically designed for use in dishwashers! All other types of salt not specifically designed for use in a dishwasher, especially table salt, will damage the water softener. in case of damages caused by the use of unsuitable salt the manufacturer does not give any warranty nor is liable for any caused damages.
- Only fill with salt just before starting one of the complete washing programmes. This will prevent any grains of salt or salty water, which may have been split, remaining of the bottom of the machine for any period of time, which may cause corrosion.
- The salt container must only be refilled when the salt warning light in the control panel comes on. Depending on how fully the salt dissolves, the salt warning light may still be on even though the salt container is filled.
If there is no salt warning light in the control panel (For some Models),you can judge when to load the salt into the softener by the cycles that the dishwasher had run.
- If there are spills of the salt, a soak or a rapid program should be run to remove the excess salt.
Adjusting Salt Consumption
- Enter the status of salt adjustment
Close the door, within 60 seconds after power on, press button and hold for 5 seconds, the machine will enter setting mode. Start/Pause
- select a certain level of salt consumption
Contact your local water board for information on the hardness of your water supply. Press the Start/pause button to select the proper set according to your local environment, the sets will change in the following sequence: H1->H2->H3->H4->H5->H6;
- Exit the status of salt adjustment
Without any operation in five seconds, the machine will exit from set mode, the machine is into standby status
There are 6 levels of salt consumption in all.It is recommended to select the level according to below table:
- German degree of measurement for the water hardness
- Millimol, internationel unit for water hardness *) factory setting
Fill the Rinse Aid Dispenser
Rinse Aid Dispenser
The rinse aid is released during the final rinse to prevent water from forming droplets on your dishes. That can leave spots and streaks. It also improves drying by allowing water to sheet off the dishes. Your dishwasher is designed to use liquid rinse aids. The rinse aid dispenser is located inside the door next to the detergent dispenser. To fill the dispenser, open the cap and pour the rinse aid into the dispenser until the level indicator turns completely black. The volume of the rinse aid container is about 110ml.
The function of Rinse Aid
Rinse aid is automatically added during the last rinse, ensuring thorough rinsing, and spot and streak free drying.
Only use branded rinse aid for dishwasher. Never fill the rinse aid dispenser with any other substances (e.g. Dishwasher cleaning agent, liquid detergent). This would damage the appliance.
When to Refill the Rinse Aid Dispenser
If there is no rinse-aid warning light in the control panel, you can judge the amount of rinse-aid by the color of the optical level indicator C located next to the cap. When the rinse-aid container is full, the whole indicator will be dark. As the rinse-aid diminishes, the size of the dark dot decreases. You should never let the rinse aid get below 1 / 4 full.
How to fill the Rinse Aid Dispenser
- To open the dispenser, turn the cap to the “open” (left) arrow and lift it out.
- Pour the rinse aid into the dispenser, being careful not to overfill.
- Replace the cap by inserting it aligned with “open” arrow and turning it to the closed (right) arrow.
NOTE: Clean up any rinse aid spill during filling with an absorbent cloth to avoid excessive foaming during the next wash. Don’t forget to replace the cap before you close dishwasher door.
Adjusting Rinse Aid Dispenser
The rinse aid dispenser has six or four settings. Always start with the dispenser set on “4”. If spots and poor drying are a problem, increase the amount of rinse aid dispensed by removing the dispenser lid and rotating the dial to “5”. If the dishes still are not drying properly or are spotted, adjust the dial to the next higher number until your dishes are spot-free. The recommended setting is “4”. (Factory value is “4”.)
Increase the dose if there are drops of water or lime spots on the dishes after washing. Reduce it if there are sticky whitish stains on your dishes or a bluish film on glassware or knife blades.
Detergents with have chemical ingredients that are necessary to remove dirt, crush dirt and transport it out of the dishwasher. Most of the commercial quality detergents are suitable for this purpose.
Normally new pulverised detergent is without phosphate. The water softener function of
phosphate is not given. In this case we recommend to fill salt in the salt container even when
the hardness of water is only 6 dH. If detergents without phosphate were used in case of hard water often white spots appear at dishes and glasses. In this case please add more detergent to reach better results. Detergents without chlorine do only bleach a little. Strong and coloured spots will not removed completely. In this case please choose a programme with higher Temperature.
Based on their chemical composition, dishwasher can be split in two basic types:
- conventional, alkaline detergents with caustic components
- low alkaline concentrated detergents with natural enzymes
Detergent tablets of different brands dissolve at different speeds. For this reason some detergent tablets cannot dissolve and develop their full cleaning power during short programmes. Therefore please use long programmes when using detergent tablets, to ensure the complete removal of detergent residuals.
NOTE: Detergent tablets are only for the models with 3 in 1 function or 3 in 1 program.
The dispenser must be refilled before the start of each wash cycle following the instructions provided in the Wash Cycle Table . Your dishwasher uses less detergent and rinse aid then a conventional dishwasher. Generally, only one tablespoon of detergent is needed for a normal wash load. Also, more heavily soiled items need more detergent. Always add the detergent just before starting the dishwasher, otherwise it could get damp and will not dissolve properly.
Amount of Detergent to Use
- If the lid is closed: press release button. The lid springs open.
- Always add the detergent just before starting each wash cycle.
- Only use branded detergent aid for dishwasher.
Dishwasher detergent is corrosive!
Take care to keep it out of reach of children.
Proper Use of Detergent
Use only detergent specifically made for use in dishwashers. Keep your detergent fresh and dry. Don’t put powder detergent into the dispenser until you’re ready to wash dishes.
Fill in detergent
Fill the detergent dispenser with detergent. The marking indicates the dosing levels , as illustrated on right:
A The place of main wash cycle detergent placed.
B The place of pre-wash cycle detergent placed.
Please observe the manufacturers dosing and storage recommendations as stated on the detergent packaging.
Close the lid and press until it locks in place.
If the dishes are heavily soiled, place an additional
detergent dose in the pre-wash detergent chamber. This detergent will take effect during the pre-wash phase.
