Prior to using for the first time

7
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
Note:
If you want to use the "3 in 1" combi detergents, carefully
read the information given in "Different kinds of
detergents".
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 (°TH) and mmol/l (millimol per litre -
international unit for the hardness of water).
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
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)
NOTE:
the electronic setting of the water softener is 
possible ONLY with the "3 in 1" function deactivated.
The dishwasher is factory set at level 5. 
1. Press the On/Off button. The On/Off indicator light 
illuminates (setting mode).
I
f a programme button indicator light is on, this means that 
a washing programme is set. The programme must be 
cancelled: press simultaneously 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 function buttons 1, 2, 3 and 4 start 
flashing.
3. Press function button 1, the indicator lights of function 
buttons 2, 3 and 4 turn off while the indicator light of 
function button 1 goes on flashing, the digital display 
indicates the current level.
Example:
displayed = level 5.
4. To change the level, press function 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 function button 1 once, 
level 6 is selected.
if the current level is 10, by pressing function 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.
