Rinse aid and refined salt
Only use products which have been specifically designed
for dishwashers.
Do not use table/industrial salt or washing-up liquid.
Follow the instructions given on the packaging.
If using a multi-functional product it is not necessary to add
any rinse aid. However, we recommend that you add salt,
especially if you live in an area where the water is hard or
very hard.
(Follow the instructions given on the packaging).
If you do not add salt or rinse aid, the LOW SALT* and
LOW RINSE AID indicator lights will stay lit.
Measuring out the rinse aid

the 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, a reserve supply of rinse aid is still available
for1-2cycles;
1.Openthedispenser“D” by pressing and pulling up the tab
on the lid;
2. Carefully introduce the rinse aid as far as the maximum
reference notch of the filling space - avoid spilling it. If this
happens, clean the spill immediately with a dry cloth.
3. Press the lid down until you hear a click to close it.
NEVER pour the rinse aid directly into the appliance tub.
Rinse-aid dispenser setting
f you are not completely satisfied with the drying results, you can
adjust the quantity of rinse aid. Switch the dishwasher on and off
using the ON/OFF button. Press the Start/Pause button 3 times.
Start it using the ON/OFF button. The rinse-aid indicator light will
flash as many times as the level that was set
(set to factory level).

Setting the water hardness
Every dishwasher is equipped with a water softener using refined
salt designed specially for this type of appliance in order to
supply water without limescale for crockery washing.
This dishwasher has a setting that helps reduce pollution and
optimises washing performance in accordance with the water
hardness level in your area. Ask your local water supplier for
this information.
Switch the dishwasher on and off using the ON/OFF button.
Press and hold down the Start/Pause button for a few seconds
until you hear a beep*. Switch the dishwasher on using the ON/
OFF button. The salt indicator light will flash as many times as
the level that was set
(water softener set to medium level).
AdjustthehardnesslevelusingtheSELECTWASHCYCLEknob
(1-2-3-4-5* see the water hardness table)
up to max. 5 levels.
Press the ON/OFF button to save the setting.
Even if using multi-functional tablets, fill the salt dispenser.

Measuring out the refined salt
In order to obtain the best possible results from a wash cycle,
make sure that the salt 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RINSEAIDindicatorlightonthepanel/display
is illuminated *;
1.Removethelowerrackandunscrewthecap(anticlockwise).
2.Thefirsttimeyoudothis:fillthewatertankrightuptoitsedge.
3. Position the funnel*
(see figure)
and fill the salt dispenser up
totheedge(approximately1kg).Itisnormalforalittlewater
to leak out.
4.Removethefunnel*andwipeanysalt
residues 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 slots (star-
shaped arrangement) in the lower part of
the cap (cap with green float*).
It is advisable to perform this procedure every time you add
salt to the dispenser.
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.
