Detergent

Detergent specifically intended for use with dishwashers must be used. The dispenser must be refilled before the start of each wash cycle following the instructions provided in the "Programme Chart". The detergent dispenser is located on the inside panel of the door.

Loading the detergent

To open lid "A", press button "B". The cleaning detergent should be introduced into the three containers "1",“2”and

“3”. "(see table at the end of the page)

After pouring in the detergent, replace the lid, pressing down until it clicks.

The rinse aid

This product makes dishes sparkle more as it improves their drying. The rinse aid container is situated on the inside of the door, you should refill it when light “D” indicates that it is empty.

(If your dishwasher is fitted with a “low rinse aid” indicator light, fill the container up when the indicator light flashes or lights up).

Loading the Rinse Aid

To open the dispenser, turn the "C" cap in the anti-clockwisedirection and then pour in the rinse aid, making sure not to overfill. The amount of rinse aid used for each cycle can be regulated by turning the dose adjuster ‘F’ which you will find under lid ‘C’.

There are 6 different settings; the normal dosage is setting 5.
