Preference Options

You can change the setting of these options to suit your preferences or circumstances. We recommend selecting the most suitable settings before you start using your dishwasher.

 Option

 Rinse aid

 Water softener*

 Beeps at end of wash

What does it do?

Regulates the amount of rinse aid dispensed. Reduce this setting if there is excess foam after a wash. Increase this setting if dishes are wet or streaky after a wash.

Refer to the ‘Water softener’ section of the ‘User guide’ for details.

Your dishwasher is factory-set to beep six times at the end of a wash. You can turn this setting off.
