Before using your dishwasher for the
first time:
1. Ensure that the electrical and water connections 
comply with the installation instructions
2. Remove all packaging from inside the appliance
3. Set the water softener
4. Pour 1 litre of water inside the salt container and 
then fill with salt
5. Fill the rinse aid dispenser.
Setting the water softener
The dishwasher is equipped with a water softener
designed to remove minerals and salts from the
water supply, which would have a detrimental or
adverse effect on the operation of the appliance.
The higher the content of these salts, the harder
your water is.
Water hardness is measured in equivalent scales,
Clarke degrees, French degrees and PPM (parts per
Million).
The softener should be adjusted according to the
hardness of the water in your area. Your local Water
Authority can advise you on the hardness of the
water in your area.
The dishwasher is factory set at level 3.
If this level is not suitable for your area the softener
should be adjusted. 
To select a different level be sure that
the dishwasher is off and then proceed
as follows:
1. Press INTENSIVE SID 80 and NORMAL
programme push buttons simultaneously.
2. While keeping the programme push buttons 
INTENSIVE SID 80 and NORMAL pressed 
switch on the dishwasher by pressing the 
ON-OFF push button. 
The ON-OFF indicator light comes on. 
At the same time, also the indicator light of the 
INTENSIVE SID 80 comes on and remains fixed 
for about 5 seconds, after this it starts flashing 
indicating the current level of the water softener.
