Usage Tips

1. Scrape leftovers(without rinsing the utensils). Face down utensils to avoid puddles with sharp cutleries facing down.

2. Load suitable amount of chlorine-free detergent and rinse aid to take the best cleaning and drying results. Thanks to the new drying technology, High Glass Drying, and the Siemens wine glass tray, brilliant shine and hygienic drying results of delicate wine glass can be easily archived with your Siemens dishwasher.

3. Refill indicator for salt H and/or rinse-aid P is lit.

No rinse aid. Refill rinse aid.

No salt. Refill with special salt.

Sensor does not detect salt tablets. Use different special salt.

4. Refill indicator for salt H and/or rinse-aid P is not lit.

Refill indicator switched off. Activation/deactivation.

There is still enough special salt/ rinse aid available. Check refill indicator, levels.

Clean and Care Tips

1. How to clean the filter for my Dishwashers?

Leftovers would be brought into dishwashers together with utensils. Utensils are clean and bright after washing, but where do the leftovers go? They would go away with water while some would stay in and generate unpleasant odor. Cleaning the filter and spray arms regularly are the simplest way you can do it by yourself to avoid this. Check out the below steps for your routines.

1. After each washing cycle, check the filters for residue.

2. Carefully unscrew filter cylinder at the base of the dishwasher and take out filter system.

3. Use a washing up brush to clean smaller prices of debris and rinse filters under running water.

4. Reassemble the filter system and twist in reverse sequence and lock it into position until both arrows line up.

2. How to clean the Spray Arms for my Dishwashers?

Leftovers would be brought into dishwashers together with utensils. Utensils are clean and bright after washing, but where do the leftovers go? They would go away with water while some would stay in and generate unpleasant odor. Cleaning the filter and spray arms regularly are the simplest way you can do it by yourself to avoid this. Check out the below steps for your routines.

1. Unscrew the upper spray arms for blockages and remove downwards

2. Remove the lower spray arm upwards.

3. Use a cocktail stick to clean the small outlet nozzles

4. Clean spray arms and the clip under running water.

5. Re-engage or screw on spray arms.

3. To ensure that the door seal always remains clean and hygienic, regularly clean it with a damp. Also, if the appliance is switched off for a prolonged period; leave the door ajar to prevent the formation of an unpleasant odour.

4. If you find deposits of grease and lime scale in your dishwasher, you may fill detergent and start the appliance without utensils in the programme with the highest rinsing temperature. The hot water passing through the appliance can help to dissolve the deposits and lower the chance of cultivating bacteria and odour. For through cleaning, you are recommended to use our cleaning and care products of dishwashers.

Trouble Shooting

1. Check water supply display lights up.

  • Supply hose kinked. Install supply hose without kinks.
  • Tap turned off. Turn on the tap.
  • Tap jammed or calcified. Turn on the tap.
  • Flow rate must be min. 10 l/min. when water supply is open.
  • Filter in the water supply blocked. Switch off the appliance and pull out the mains plug. Turn off the tap. Unscrew water connection.
  • Clean filter in the supply hose. Screw water connection on again. Check for leaks.
  • Reconnect power supply. Switch on the appliance.

2. Error code E:22 is lit.

Filters 1j are soiled or blocked. Clean filters.

3. Error code E:24 is lit.

  • Waste water hose is blocked or kinked. Install hose without kinks, remove any residue.
  • Siphon connection still sealed. Check connection to siphon and open if required.
  • Cover on the waste water pump loose. Lock cover correctly.

4. Error code E:25 is lit.

Waste water pump blocked or cover on the waste water pump is not locked in position. Clean pump and lock cover correctly.

5. Error code E:27 is lit.

Mains voltage too low. Not an appliance fault, have the mains voltage and electrical installation checked.

6. A different error code is indicated on the digital display. E:01 to E:30

  • A technical fault has probably occurred. Switch off appliances with the ON/OFF switch. After a short time restart the appliance.
  • If the problem recurs, turn off the tap and pull out the mains plug. Call customer service and mention the error code. Customer Contact Hotline : (852) 2565 6151 Monday to Saturday 9am – 6pm. (except public holidays)

7. Display flashes

Door not closed properly. Close the door. Ensure that no objects (utensil, fragrance dispenser) are protruding over the basket and preventing the door from closing.

8. Water is left in the appliance at the end of the programme.

  • Filter system or area under the filters 1j is blocked. Clean filters and area underneath.
  • The programme has not yet ended. Wait until programme ends or reset.

9. Utensils not dry.

  • No or too little rinse aid in the dispenser. Refill rinse aid.
  • Programme selected without drying. Select programme with drying (see Overview of programmes, Programme sequence).
  • Water collecting in depressions on the utensils and cutlery. Arrange utensils in a sloping position, arrange affected utensils as sloping as possible.
  • The combined detergent used has a poor drying performance. Use different combination detergent with better drying performance. Use of rinse aid also increases the drying performance.
  • Intensive drying to increase drying not activated. Activate intensive drying (see Operating the appliance)
  • Utensils were removed too early or drying process had not ended yet. Wait until program ends or wait until 30 min after program ends before removing utensils.
  • The eco rinse aid used has a poor drying performance. Use a proprietary rinse aid. Eco products are much less effective.

10. Plastic utensils not dry.

Special properties of plastic. Plastic has a lower heat storage capacity and therefore dries less well.

11. Cutlery not dry.

  • Cutlery not arranged properly in the cutlery basket. Separate cutlery if possible, prevent contact points.
  • Cutlery not arranged properly in the cutlery drawer. Arrange cutlery properly and separate if possible.

12. Appliance interior wet after rinse cycle.

No appliance fault. On account of the “Condensation drying” principle, water droplets are physically induced and required in the container. The humidity in the air condenses on the inner walls of the dishwasher, drains and is pumped out.

13. Food remnants on the utensils.

  • Utensils placed too closely together, utensils basket overfilled. Arrange utensils with adequate clearance between them ensuring that the spray jets can reach the surface of the utensils. Prevent contact points.

Tips for saving energy

Siemens is one of the leading manufacturers of efficient household appliances. In recent years, the energy consumption of Siemens dishwashers has been reduced by up to 50 percent.

You can save even more energy when washing dishes with the following tips:

  • Do not pre-rinse dirty dishes under running water, but remove only the large food remnants.
  • Always load your dishwasher so that the water reaches all surfaces.
  • A full load translates into full energy efficiency.

intensiveZone

  • ICON_PG_IntensiveZone

Activation of the intensiveZone in any programme provides more spray pressure in the bottom rack for heavily soiled dishes. The spray pressure is not increased in the top rack. Fragile glasses in the top rack can thus be washed at the same time as heavily soiled pots and pans in the bottom rack.

hygienePlus

  • ICON_HYGIENEPLUS

The hygienePlus function is ideal for cleaning containers and utensils for which optimal hygiene is particularly important, such as baby bottles and cutting boards. During the final rinse, the temperature is kept at a high level of 70°C on average for approx. ten minutes. If this function is used regularly, up to 99.99% of all bacteria and germs are eliminated in the process.
