1. Ask your water supply company what the water hardness is... 2. ...enter this value
on your dishwasher
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.

The rinse aid dosage can be adjusted to the detergent used. The lower the setting, the less rinse aid is dispensed (factory setting: position 4). Press the button to open the cover B. Using a coin or similar object, turn the arrow to the desired setting. After adjusting the rinse aid setting, shut the cover again.
Rinse aid indicator on the dispenser
dark: OK.
Only use rinse aids recommended for use in domestic dishwashers. Immediately wipe away any rinse aid spilt accidentally. This pr events the formation of excess suds which can cause
a fault function of the appliance.
If there are streaks: reduce the dosage by turning the dial to a lower setting (1-3). If crockery is not perfectly dry: increase the dosage by turning the dial to a higher setting (5-6). Plastic dishes have more difficulty drying and a higher rinse aid setting will not improve the situation.
Detergents with rinse aid incorporated may be effective only with longer programs. In the case of shorter programs, detergent r esidue may be a problem (if necessary, use powder
detergent). Detergents with rinse aid incorporated tend to form excess suds.
Adding detergent - Use only detergent specifically for dishwashers in accordance with the supplier’s recommendations
Open the cover A (press the dedicated button).
Insert detergent: Tablet / powder / liquid
into the big chamber.
Only fill the detergent dispenser prior to starting a wash program.
Daily use
Shut the cover by pressing dedicated ribs.
Use only one tablet per one cycle, only placed in detergent dispenser.
All types of tablets can be used, but for 2 in 1 type adding of salt is mandatory.

additional rinse aid.
...suds - Unsuitable dosage of detergent/rinse aid. - Only use the amount of detergent/rinse aid required, since excessive amounts can
lead to excess suds.
