Programme selection mode and user mode

When the appliance is in programme selection mode it is possible to set a programme and to enter the user mode.

In user mode, the following settings can be changed:
  • The level of the water softener according to the water hardness.

  • The activation or deactivation of the rinse aid empty notification.

These settings will be saved until you change them again.

The water softener

The water softener removes minerals from the water supply, which would have a detrimental effect on the washing results and on the appliance.

The higher the content of these minerals, the harder your water is. Water hardness is measured in equivalent scales.

The water 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. It is important to set the right level of the water softener to assure good washing results.

1) Factory setting.
2) Do not use salt at this level.

If you use multi-tablets containing salt and the hardness of your water is lower than 21°dH, you can set the lowest water softener level. It deactivates the salt refill indicator.

If you use standard detergent or multi-tablets without salt, set the proper water hardness level to keep the salt refill indicator active.

The rinse aid empty notification

When rinse aid chamber is empty, the rinse aid indicator is turned on notifying to refill rinse aid. If you are using multi-tabs containing rinse aid and you are satisfied with the drying result, you can deactivate the notification for refilling rinse aid. However, we recommend that you always use rinse aid for best drying performance.

If you use standard detergent or multi-tablets without rinse aid, activate the notification to keep the rinse aid refill indicator active.
