Prior to using for the first time

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 dishwasher salt
5. Fill the rinse aid dispenser
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 minerals and salts, the harder
your water is.
Water hardness is measured in equivalent scales, Clarke
degrees, French degrees and mmol/l (millimol per litre).
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 water softener must be set in both ways: manually, using
the water hardness dial and electronically, using the function
push buttons on the control panel.
a) Setting manually
1. Open the dishwasher door.
2. Remove the lower basket from the dishwasher.
3. Turn the water hardness dial to position 1 or 2 (see table).
4. Replace the lower basket.
The dishwasher is factory set
at position 2.
b) Setting electronically
(The dishwasher must be switched off)
The dishwasher is factory set at level 5. 
1. Press the On/Off button. The On/Off indicator light 
illuminates (setting mode).
If a programme button indicator light is on, this means that 
a washing programme has been set. The programme must 
be cancelled: press simultaneously the function buttons 2
and 3 for about 2 seconds. 
All the indicator lights will turn off (except for the On/Off 
indicator light and eventually salt and rinse aid indicator 
lights) indicating that the set programme has been 
cancelled and the machine is now in setting mode.
2. Press simultaneously function buttons 2 and 3, until the 
indicator lights of the function buttons 1, 2 and 3 start 
flashing.
3. Press the function button 1, the indicator lights of function 
buttons 2 and 3 turn off while the indicator light of the 
button 1 goes on flashing, at the same time the indicator 
light END starts to flash.
The current level is indicated by the number of flashes of 
the indicator light END (see chart).
Example: 5 flashes = level 5
4. To change the level, press button 1. Each time the button is 
pressed the level changes. (For the selection of the new 
level see the chart).
Examples:
if the current level is 5, by pressing button 1 once, level 6 is 
selected.
if the current level is 10, by pressing button 1 once, level 1 
is selected.
5. To memorise the operation, switch off the dishwasher by 
pressing the On/Off button or wait about 60 seconds after 
which the dishwasher will automatically return to setting 
mode.
