C A B D 5 gr. 15 gr. C F D Proper dosage of the rinse aid improves drying. If drops of water remain on the dishes or spotting occurs, turn the dosage adjuster to a higher setting. If, on the other hand, the dishes have white streaks, then turn the dosage adjuster down to a lower setting. Warning Three-in-one dishwasher tablets are now available on the market, and combine the detergent, salt and rinse aid all in one. If the water in your area is hard or very hard, we still recommend you pour extra salt into the relevant dispenser to prevent the formation of white streaks on your dishes or on the appliance interior. In any case, please read the manufacturer’s instructions provided on the packet .

This way, you can optimise and customiseyourdishwasher’ssalt consumption ( nottoomuch, nortoo little ). Toadjustsaltconsumption, doas follows : 1. Unscrewthesaltcontainercap 2. Thereisanarrowontheneckof the container ( see figure ) : if necessary, turnthearrowanti – clockwise from the ” – ” setting to the ” + ” setting. Select the arrow position dependingonthewaterhardness, referringtothetableprovided. You don’t know how hard the water in your home is ? Ask the company that supplies water in your area. Water hardness varies according to where you live. If the water in your home is hard, without water softening, incrustations would form on your dishes. Your dishwasher is fitted with a water softener which uses special salt to get rid of limescale in the water. Using your electric household appliances wisely helps you make savings and is good for the environment. Savings are easy Maximum load. To optimise consumption levels, try to use the dishwasher with a full load only. If it takes quite some time to fill up your dishwasher, use the soak cycle to avoid the formation of bad odours and caked-on food. The right wash cycle. Select the most suitable wash cycle for the type of load you have placed in the dishwasher. The choice of wash cycle depends on the type of dishes to wash and on how dirty they are. To select the right wash cycle, please consult the wash cycle table on page 17. How to look after and protect the dishes you hold dear ■ Forparticularlydelicatedishes, we recommend you use the specificwashcycleofferedby yourdishwasher. Suggestions and advice for you. Apart from making you save time and energy, your dishwasher disinfects your dishes, washing them at a high temperature. ■ Silverplatesandservingdishes shouldbewashedimmediately afteruse, especiallyiftheyhave contained salt, eggs, olives, mustard, vinegar, fruitjuices andcookedvegetables. ■ Almostallsilverwarecanbe cleanedinadishwasher.
