Use of detergent

6
Use of detergent 
Only use detergents specifically designed for use in
dishwashers.
Using no more then the correct amount of detergent
contributes to reducing pollution.
Prior to the start of a wash programme (not for the "Rinse and
Hold" programme). The detergent is released during the
washing phase. 
Please observe the manufacturer’s dosing and storage
recommendations as stated on the detergent packaging.
Fill with detergent 
(Detergent dispenser type A)
1. If the lid is closed: press release button (1). 
The lid springs open.
2. Fill the detergent dispenser (2) with detergent. 
The marking indicates the dosing levels:
20 = approximately 20 ml of detergent
30 = approximately 30 ml of detergent
3. All programmes with prewash need an additional detergent 
dose (5/10 g) that must be placed in the prewash detergent 
chamber (3). This detergent will take effect during the 
prewash phase.
4. Close the lid and press until it locks in place.
Fill with detergent 
(Detergent dispenser type B)
1. Open the dispenser by pulling the catch (D). 
The lid springs open.
2. Fill the detergent dispenser with detergent. 
The marking indicates the dosing levels:
Min = approximately 15 g of detergent
Max = approximately 30 g of detergent
3. Close the lid and press until it locks in place.
4. All programmes with prewash need an additional detergent 
dose (5/10 g) that must be placed over the lid of the 
dispenser. This detergent will take effect during the prewash 
phase.
Detergent tablets
Detergent tablets of different brands dissolve at different
speeds. For this reason some detergent tablets cannot
develop their full cleaning power during short programmes.
Therefore please use normal programmes with prewash when
using detergent tablets.
Do not place the tablets in the tub or in the cutlery basket
as this will result in poorer wash results. The tablets
should be placed in the detergent dispenser. 
Concentrated detergent
Based on their chemical composition, dishwasher detergents
can be split into two basic types:
- conventional, alkaline detergents with caustic components.
- low alkaline concentrated detergents with natural enzymes.
The use of 50°C washing programmes in conjunction with
concentrated detergents reduces pollution and is good for your
dishes; these wash programmes are specially matched to the
dirt-dissolving properties of the enzymes in the concentrated
detergent. For this reason 50°C wash programmes in which
concentrated detergents are used can achieve the same
results that can otherwise only be achieved using 65°C
programmes.
Use of "3 in 1" combi detergent tablets 
General advice
These products are tablets with combined detergent/rinse-aid
and salt functions.
1. Before using these products you should first check that the 
water hardness in your supply is compatible with the use of 
these products as per the detergent manufacturers (on the 
product packaging).
2. These products should be strictly used according to the 
detergent manufacturers instructions.
3. If you encounter problems when using 3 in 1 products for 
the first time then please contact the detergent 
manufacturers care line (the telephone number is given on 
the product packaging).
Special advice
When using combination products, the rinse-aid and salt
indicators are no longer useful (please note that only some
dishwashers have these options).
For more information please refer to the instruction manual.
If you decide to turn back to the use of the standard detergent
system we advise that you:
q
Refill both the salt container and rinse aid dispenser.
q
Switch the water hardness setting to the highest possible 
position and run a normal washing programme without a 
load.
q
Readjust the water hardness setting again according to the 
hardness of the water in your area.
