Water hardness should be set only

Fill the salt reservoir with water

The salt level indicator lamp may remain lit
at the end of several wash cycles. If the
water hardness level falls within category
(soft), no salt is required.

- Press and hold together Programs and CANCEL/Off buttons for minimum 3 seconds.
- Programs LEDs will indicate the water hardness setting.
- Press the Programs button to increase setting (when the level reaches 7, the next key press will set the level back to 1.

Water hardness level is factory set
for medium-hard water (level 4).
Even if you use tablets which
include salt functionality, you must
still add regeneration salt since such
detergents are not effective enough
at softening hard water.
At first time use, the salt
reservoir has to be filled

Once regeneration salt is added, immediately start a wash program (the “Pre-wash” program alone is not sufficient). Residual saline solution or grains of salt can
lead to deep-down corrosion, irreparably damaging the stainless steel components. The guarantee is not applicable if faults are caused by such circumstances.
