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 automatically power on for 30 seconds whenever you open the drawer. You can turn this setting off.

This turns all tones off except for fault alerts.

When this setting is on, the drawer will automatically lock 30 seconds after it’s closed. It can then be unlocked by pressing  (unless Keylock or Childlock is also activated). Useful in boats or motor homes.
