4.Prior using for the first time
NOTE: If your model have no water softener, you may skip this section.
A. 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.

A Remove the basket and then unscrew and remove the cap from the salt container.


B Before first wash, add 1lt. of water in the salt container of your machine.

C Place the end of the funnel (supplied) into the hole and introduce about 1kg of salt.

It is normal for a small amount of water to come out of the salt container. 2

D After filling the container , screw the cap tightly back clockwise.

E Usually, the salt warning light will be cease to be illuminated within 2-6 days after the salt container has been filled with


F Immediately after filling the salt into the salt container, a washing programme should be started (Suggest choose rapid

programme). Otherwise filter system, pump or other important parts of the machine may be damaged by salty

water. It is out of warranty.

1. 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.
2. If there are spills of the salt, a soak or a rapid program should be run to remove the excess salt.

Adjusting Salt Consumption

Step 1: Enter the status of salt adjustment
Close the door, within 60 seconds after power on, press Start/Pause button and hold for 5 seconds, the machine will enter setting mode.







Step 2: select a certain level of salt consumption

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;

Step 3: 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:

Water Hardness level

dH 1)

mmol/l 2)

Setting on the water softener

Digital display stalls

























1) German degree of measurement for the water hardness 2) millimol, internationel unit for water hardness *) factory setting
Contact your local water board for information on the hardness of your water supply.
B. 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.
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 CC 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.

C (Rinse-Aid indicator)

As the rinse aid diminishes, the size of the black dot on the rinse aid level indicator changes, as illustrated below.
Full 3 / 4 ful l 1 / 2 ful l 1 / 4 full – Should refill to eliminate spotting Empty




1 To open the dispenser, turn the cap to the “open” (left) arrow and lift it out. 2 Pour the rinse aid into the dispenser, being careful not to overfill. 3 Replace the cap by inserting it aligned with “open” arrow and turning it to the closed (right) arrow.

NOTE: Clean up any rinse aid split 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

Adjust lever (Rinse)

The rinse aid dispenser has six or four settings. Always start with the dispenser set on “4”. If spots and poor drying are problems, 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.

C. Function of Detergent
Detergents with its chemical ingredients are necessary to remove dirt, crush dirt and transport it out of the dishwasher. Most of 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.
Concentrated Detergent
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
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.

Detergent Dispenser
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 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



Push latch to open

Detergent powder Detergent tablet


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.

You find information about the amount of detergent for the single programme on the last page. Please aware, that according to the level soiling and the specific hardness of water differences are possible. Please observe the manufacturer’s recommendations on the detergent packaging.

5.Loading the Dishwasher Baskets

Consider buying utensils which are identified as dishwasher-proof. Use a mild detergent that is described as ‘kind of dishes’. If necessary, seek further information from detergent manufacturers. For particular items, select a programme with as low a temperature. To prevent damage, do not take glass and cutlery out of the dishwasher immediately after the programme has ended.

For washing in the dishwasher the following cutlery/dishes

Are not suitable
Cutlery with wooden, horn china or mother-of-pearl handles Plastic items that are not heat resistant Older cutlery with glued parts that is not temperature resistant Bonded cutlery items or dishes Pewter or copper items crystal glass Steel items subject to rusting Wooden platters Items made from synthetic fibres

Attention before or after loading the Dishwasher Baskets
(For best performance of the dishwasher, follow these loading guidelines. Features and appearance of baskets and cutlery baskets may vary from your model.) Scrape off any large amounts of leftover food. Soften remnants of burnt food in pans It is not necessary to rinse the dishes under running water. Place objects in the dishwasher in following way: 1.Items such as cups, glasses, pots/pans, etc. are face down. 2.Curved items, or those with recesses, should be loaded at a slant so that water can run off. 3.All utensils are stacked securely and can not tip over. 4.All utensils are placed in the way that the spray arms can rotated freely during washing.
NOTE: Very small items should not be washed in the dishwasher as they could easily fall out of the basket.
Load hollow items such as cups, glasses, pans etc. With the opening downwards so that water cannot collect in the container or a deep base. Dishes and items of cutlery must not lie inside one another, or cover each other. To avoid damage to glasses, they must not touch. Load large items which are most difficult to clean into the basket. Long bladed knives stored in an upright position are a potential hazard! Long and/or sharp items of cutlery such as carving knives must be positioned horizontally in the basket. Please do not overload your dishwasher. This is important for good results and for reasonable energy consume.

Filtering System

The filter prevent larger remnants of food or other objects from getting inside the pump.

The filter system consists of a coarse filter, a flat (Main filter)

and a micro filter (fine filter).


A Main filter

Food and soil particles trapped by this filter are pulverized by a

special jet on the spray arm and washed down to drain.


B Fine filter

This filter holds soil and food residue in the sump area and

prevents it from being deposited on the dishes during wash cycle.

Filter assembly

C Coarse filter
Larger items, such as pieces of bone or glass, that could block the drain are trapped in the coarse filter. To remove the items caught by the filter, gently squeeze the tap on the top of this filter and lift out.

The filter efficiently removes food particles from the wash water, allowing it to be re-cyclated during the cycle. For best performance and results, the filter assembly must be regularly. For this reason, it is a good idea to remove the larger food particles trapping in the filter after each wash cycle by rinsing the filter and cup under running water. To remove the filter assembly, pull on the cup handle in the upward direction.


Never run the dishwasher without the filters in place. The dishwasher must never be used without the filters. Improper replacement of the filter may reduce the performance level of the appliance and damage dishes and utensils.

Select a more intensive programme. See” Wash Cycle Table “. Use more detergent, or change your detergent.
Rearrange the items so that the spray can rotate freely.
Clean and/or fit the filter combination correctly. Clean the spray arm jets. See “Cleaning the Spray Arms”.
Use less detergent if you have soft water and select a shortest cycle to wash the glassware and to get them clean. Use a mild abrasive cleaner to eliminate those marks.
Re-loading the dishes properly.
Load the dishwasher as suggested in the directions.

Too little rinse-aid
Dishes are removed too soon.
Wrong programme selection Using cutlery with a low-quality coating

Increase the amount of rinse-aid/Refill the rinse-aid dispenser.
Do not empty your dishwasher immediately after washing. Open the door slightly so that the steam can escape. Begin unloading the dishwasher only once t he dishes are barely warm to the touch. Empty the low basket first. This prevents water form dropping off dishes in the upper basket.
In short programmes the washing temperature is lower. This also lowers cleaning performance. Choose a programme with a long washing time.
Water drainage is more difficult with these items. Cutlery or dishes of this type are not suitable for washing in the dishwasher.
