Preparation


Tips for energy saving
The following information will help you use the product in an ecological and energy-efficient manner.

  • Wipe away any coarse food remnants on the dishes before putting them in the product.
  • Operate the product after filling it. When selecting a program, consider the table of “Programme data and average consumption values” given in Quick Guide. Do not put more detergent than suggested on the detergent package.

Water softening system
The product is equipped with a water softening system which reduces the hardness of incoming water. This system softens the supply water to a level that will allow washing the dishes with the required quality.

Adjusting the water-softening system
Washing performance will increase when the water softening system is adjusted properly. The regeneration of the water softening system can be done in all programs during the drying step. When regeneration occurs, the duration, energy, and water consumption of the program increase. For the regeneration process; the frequency of the regeneration cycle, maximum additional duration, and water, and energy consumption are given in the table below depending on the Eco 50°C program water consumption when the dishwasher is run under standard conditions with 14 dH water supply on its Eco 50°C program: For the water consumption of your dishwasher on Eco 50°C program, look at the Programme data and average consumption values table given on Quick Guide.

Adding salt
The water softening system needs to be regenerated for the product to operate with the same performance continuously.  Dishwasher salt is used for this purpose.

  •  Use only special softening salts produced particularly for the dishwashers in your machine.
  •  It is recommended to use granule- or powder-formed softening salts in the water softening system. Do not use salts that do not completely dissolve in water such as table salt or rock salt.  Otherwise, the performance of the system may deteriorate in time.

The salt reservoir will be filled with water when you start the product.  For this reason, add salt before operating the machine.

  1. Firstly, take the lower basket out to add softening salt.
  2. Turn the salt reservoir lid counterclockwise to open it (A).
  3. Add 1 liter of water to the salt reservoir of your machine only in initial use.
  4. Fill the salt reservoir with salt by using the salt funnel (D). To speed up the dissolution rate of salt in water, stir it with a spoon.  You can put about 2 kg of softening salt into the salt reservoir.
  5. Replace the lid and tighten it when the reservoir is full.

Detergent
You can use powder, liquid/gel, or tablet detergents in the machine.

  •  Only use detergents produced particularly for use with dishwashers. Note that detergents that contain chlorine and phosphate can be harmful to the environment. Liquid detergents

Adding detergent

  •  Pay attention to the warnings on the detergent packaging to get better washing and drying results.  Contact the manufacturer of the detergent for further questions.
  •  Do not put solvents into the detergent dispenser. There is the risk of explosion! Put the detergent into the detergent dispenser just before operating the machine as illustrated below.
  1. Push the latch to the right to open the detergent dispenser lid (A). (depends on the model)Beku BDFN Dishwasher User Manual-5
  2. Put the suggested amount of powder, liquid/gel, or tablet detergent in the reservoir.
  3. Push the lid of the detergent dispenser to close it. A “click” will be heard when the lid is closed.Beku BDFN Dishwasher User Manual-4

Use powder or liquid/gel detergent in short programs without prewashing since the solubility of the tablet detergent changes depending on the

Tablet detergents
In addition to the conventional tablet detergents, there are also commercially available detergent tablets that show water-softening salt and/or rinse aid effects.  Some types of these detergents contain special-purpose components such as glass and stainless steel protectors.  These tablets show their effects up to a certain water hardness level (21°dH).  Water softening salt and rinse aid must also be used together with the detergent if the water hardness level is above the mentioned level. The best washing performance in dishwashers is obtained by using detergent, rinse aid, and water-softening salt individually.

When you switch to powder detergent from tablet detergent:

  1. Make sure that salt and rinse aid reservoirs are full.
  2. Set the water hardness to the highest level and perform an empty run
  3. After the empty washing cycle, review the user manual and readjust the water hardness level to suit the water supply.
  4. Make the appropriate rinse aid settings.

Rinse aid
The rinse aid used in dishwashers is a special combination that aims to increase drying efficiency and prevent water or lime stains on the washed items. For this reason, care must be paid to have rinse aid in the rinse aid reservoir and to use rinse aids produced specially for dishwashers only.

  1. Open the lid of the rinse aid reservoir with the help of the latch.Beku BDFN Dishwasher User Manual-6
  2. Fill the reservoir until the “MAX” level.Beku BDFN Dishwasher User Manual-7
  3. Slightly press the point (B) of the reservoir lid to close it.
  4. If there are stains on tableware items after washing, the level must be increased and if there is a blue trace after wiping them by hand, it must be decreased. This is set to position 3 as factory default.
